Broadway’s most refreshing musical comes to Manila in its first ever run! Winner of 4 Tony Awards in 2008 including Best Musical and Best Choreography, In The Heights has definitely captured the hearts of millions around the world with its touching story and great musical beats!

It’s a neighborhood on the brink of change, armored with dreams and pressures and the biggest challenges are that of deciding which traditions to fulfill and pursue, and which ones to forget and leave behind.

MODESS ANGELS

MODESS ANGELS

15 January 2010

Metro Manila and the entire Philippines were caught off guard last September 26, 2009 when Typhoon Ondoy suddenly struck. It was recorded to be the Tropical Depression with the worst rainfall to hit Manila, leaving hundreds and thousands of people without shelter, food, and clothing.

Right after Ondoy & Pepeng, thousands of volunteers from all walks of life gathered together to aid and assist those in need. Women were first to respond. Evacuation centers, packing centers and soup kitchens quickly filled with women who were armed and ready to help in every which way they can. It was their love, care and kindness that inspired more people to come out and help too.

But despite this initial outpour of concern, 57,000 families are still living in evacuation centers scattered all throughout Luzon. More than 30,000 of the displaced are women. Christmas and New Year have come and gone, and life in the evacuation centers have worsened. Their health and well-being have suffered tremendously, having poor and limited access to water, shelter, health care and clothing.

Inspired by that first wave of women volunteers, Modess is taking up the challenge for continued care for our displaced sisters in need. 30,000 comfort kits – much needed packets of feminine care – will be distributed across the 220 evacuation centers still in operation.

Modess has set up a Facebook group where female volunteers can sign up for a comfort kit to be given in their name. Every sign up means one more comfort kit donated.

With only its first month in operation, the Modess Angels group page has already reached more than 30,000 Angels, and will continue to grow in the next days. The Facebook group has also become a hub for more information on the evacuation centers, a support system for women volunteers and an all-around community of of sisterhood, sharing, fun and love. After all, the need for female empowerment & volunteering never ends. The Modess Angels are women who make a difference, not only during these troubled times, but with her self, her family and her community as well.

It doesn’t take an army to rebuild a nation. It takes Angels.

A vote for Earth

Earth Hour

It’s about 50 minutes until the Philippines officially participates in Earth Hour. You know, at first it didn’t strike me as anything big or anything that  I thought mattered to a lot of people. But as today came closer and closer, I was able to see the participation of many people as well as many tv shows. On cable, many of the shows I watch will not be airing anything in participation of this momentous event. At home as well, me and my family will be participating in Earth Hour by having a candlelit dinner and switching off all our lights. Many friends of mine on plurk as well will be participating in this event, with many of us (especially my friends who blog) who are blogging about this event.

It’s nice to see people around the world coming together to care about Mother Earth. Despite what many people say about this hardly making any effect, since an hour is only an hour out of 24 hours in a day, and out of 365 days (8760hours) in a year, making the effort to switch off one’s lights for an hour is surely a big thing. And even if we switch off our lights only for an hour out of 8760 hours in a year, I am sure Mother Earth will appreciate the effort we’re making. I am also sure that even an hour, will help Mother Earth stay clean and green a little longer~ :)

Quoting from the official Earth Hour website,

“In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.”

So Vote Earth now and help Mother Nature stay clean and green a little longer. Turn off your lights from 830pm-930pm (your local time).

Two #books to add to my collection, which I haven't done in a few weeks due to lack of space and money. :( Been eyeing Love and Misadventure since Feb. Found the China book on a pile on the floor, and it's quite educational...even to a Chinese like me. :)
