Ain't No Sunshine was sung originally by Bill Withers. I heard this song when Shaun Smith from Britains Got Talent sang this during his audition. When he sang it, I just fell in love with it and was somewhat familiar with this song because I love listening to old, classic songs.
Anyway, there have been many who revived this song. One version was by Lenny Kravitz. Kravitz's version was great but I prefer the original. Also, this song has been covered by many artists including the late Michael Jackson. Check out Wikipedia to know the other artists.
Bill Wither's version of Ain't No Sunshine has a lot more soul into it. It just touches your heart when your listen to it. Nothing beats the original, that's what I always say.
Anyway, here's a video of Ain't No Sunshine sung by Bill Withers.
Ah, the month of March, a month of graduation. It marks the end of a chapter in our school life, be it in elementary, secondary or college. You can see a lot of graduates dressed in their togas, eagerly anticipating the end of commencement exercises. This activity officially marks the end of their school life and the start of another or their new journey in the real world.
Newly college grads are now face with the reality of finding a job. No more free allowances from our parents, grandparents and godparents. This signifies that we are now tasked to stand up on our own two feet.
To the graduates of 2010, I welcome you to the real world. Prepare your resumes and CV's; Draft your interview speeches; And prepare your handkerchiefs as you venture and enduringly stand in line with other applicants and eagerly wanting to impress the employer as much as the next guy.
Learning does not end within the four corners of the classroom. As you start your career outside the school, you'll continue to learn, find friends and enemies, deal with people and yourself. So, good luck graduates and press on with your ambitions.
You might have noticed by now that I can barely update this blog. Oftentimes, I can manage more than 1 update when I'm hit with an inspiration. But that's a rare occasion.
The problem with writing is how you actually start the article. Now for a non-writer like me, that's like asking a scientist to prove God.
So, just to update this blog, I'll try to uncover the inner depths of my brain and try to come up with worthy articles(hopefully). According to the workshop I've been to, "if you want to write, then all you have to do is write". Thus here I am trying to accomplish just that.
For starters, I just want to thank DavaoBloggers for the opportunity they've given to someone like me. Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Rene Lizada. The knowledge he imparted and shared with us will highly be venerated.
And so, from now on, I will try to uncover my skills in writing (if ever there was one). Wish me luck guys.
How about you? Do you have any difficulty when it comes to writing? Hope you can share some tips for me. Lolz

Christmas is only a couple of days away, less than a month by the time of this writing, and people are packed in malls trying to buy Christmas decors and food to prepare for the Noche Buena.
Malls are looking vibrant with colorful Christmas decorations as well as Christmas lights for sale. Buyers crowding the Christmas lights section choosing and testing what light decoration to buy.
It's like a tradition to put Christmas lights as part of this joyous event.
We went to the mall for the sole purpose of just going out of the house once in a while. It's boring staying inside the house for 2 days, sleeping and staring at the computer. Getting a whiff of fresh air to revitalize the body is good (though it's not that fresh anymore).
Anway, we passed by the section of the mall where they sell Christmas ornaments, Christmas trees, and other Christmas stuff.
I for one doesn't like putting Christmas stuff in the house. I don't really know, I just don't feel and like to. However, the missus likes these kinds of stuff. And I thought, why not go for a change for once (Take note on the emphasis on once.. LOL).
I decided to buy several Christmas lights for the house. Looking around, I found some Christmas tube lights which are very good and appropriate for putting outside since these kinds of light doesn't easily get wet. As the lights were tested, other customers found out that it was beautiful. In fact, people doesn't have enough idea on what actually were the use of those tubes on the floor until we bought some. We settled for various color tube lights.
These Christmas tube lights consists of tiny light bulbs encase in a plastic tubing. With these construction, it can easily bend around and appropriate for outside use.
We also bought some Santa-on-sleigh, perfect for putting in doors. We also bought some regular Christmas lights serving as extension for the Santa-on-sleigh lights.
At home, we mount the tube lights we bought around the tree outside the house and positioned Santa above the door. We had trouble layouting the regular Christmas lights on the windows. After a while, to hell with it, just hang them around the windows, there's no point in actually layout it so hard.
We also attached the old Christmas lights we had last year. We eventually finished putting the Christmas lights outside and it's time to turn them on. The arrangement looked pretty good and the Christmas tube lights were brighter than what I expected.
Now, we wait for Noche Buena. Can't wait for the food which will be prepared this Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone.

I started with my new client for a few weeks now, and mostly I've been dealing with Wordpress as a CMS. Wordpress in itself is quite powerful yet very simple to use. Its flexibility is known to every web developers and website owners.
With its flexibility, its quite easy to make it behave as a CMS, and most people are doing this. And this is where I encountered my issues. My client uses Wordpress as a CMS for his clients.
I've been using Wordpress in some of my blogs and I am very happy working with it. But, frankly, why use a blogging web app as a CMS. It's like walking with your hands. Possible but not appropriate.
There are simple CMS web apps out there that does the job perfectly. I'm not saying that Wordpress should also try to be a CMS. Its flexibility makes that very possible.
All I'm saying is blogging is blogging, CMS is CMS.
