Searching for Heaven on Earth

Many times I have used the line ‘Heaven on Earth’ on twitter or during conversation with friends. ‘Heaven on Earth’ for me is a place overflowing with abundance, beauty and happiness. It could also be a feeling so hard to explain and describe and all you can do is smile.

There’s this book by David Jeremiah that will help you understand the true meaning of Heaven and experience it while still on earth.

The book is titled ‘Searching for Heaven on Earth’. It offers valuable insights on wisdom and folly, on chance and purpose, and on life and meaning.  There’s a lot more to this book that will help you discover true happiness. It will make you realize that it’s your outlook that will make you love life more. The book will guide you in your search for real heaven while still alive.

 “Searching for Heaven on Earth” is a finalist of both the ECPA Gold Medallion Book Award and the Jordon Christian Book of the Year Award.

Back Cover Text:

Don’t you deserve a little happiness?
They are the questions that plague us:
Is happiness within my reach?
Why is life so frustrating?
Is it too late for me?
Where can I find a little heaven on earth?

History’s most successful man, Solomon, wondered just that! And as Dr. David Jeremiah shows us, he was a man who tested life’s haunting questions head-on. And tasted life’s riches full-on. And who found his answers in the last place he thought to look.
Listen, then, to his voice. A voice that, if you pay attention, will speak directly to your flesh and bones and heart. A voice that admits: Maybe happiness is an empty hope. Or maybe we’ve simply been looking in all the wrong places…

The Walking Dead Season 4


I glued myself to the TV thinking The Walking Dead season 4 will premiere tonight. Few hours after, I got the Press Release from FOX that it will be on October 19 at 8:55 PM followed by the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Sleepy Hollow at 9:50 PM and 10:45 PM, respectively.

I’m also became more excited that there will be a Zombie Ball at the Terrace of Maxims Hotel, Resorts World just before the actual screening.

The three shows are among the most highly anticipated series in the US, each owning a distinct fan base as TV adaptations of successful comic book and movie franchises.

The Walking Dead is based on a comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, and has had a strong viewership over its last three seasons, garnering 12.4 million viewers for its Season 3 finale and reigns the most watched series in PayTV history.

I even promoted the books and TV series of The Walking Dead on different social websites and forums as part of my Marketing Job with a US Online company.

To those who might have missed the 3 previous seasons. FOX will treat you to a four-day channel takeover, Countdown To The Zombie Apocalypse. Starting on October 15 at 11:40 PM until October 19 at 8:55 PM.  It will be non-stop right up until the Season 4 premiere, giving the ultimate chance for FOX viewers to catch up with the latest developments in the series.


Meanwhile, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is created by Joss Whedon, director of Marvel’s The Avengers, along with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. The series chronicles the experiences of Agent Phil Coulson, from The Avengers (the highest-grossing film of 2012), as he puts together a team under the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (S.H.I.E.L.D.) that encounters and profiles superhumans in the world. It expands the Marvel universe with new characters and adventures, portraying ordinary people put in extraordinary circumstances and placed smack dab in the middle of the epic battle between good and evil.

Clark Gregg reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson, a character loved by hardcore Marvel fans as well as fans of The Avengers. Gregg is joined by Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge, who play Coulson’s fellow agents in S.H.I.E.L.D. Produced by Disney and Marvel, the series promises the high-level action and storytelling for which the films have been highly acclaimed and loved by viewers around the world over the years.

Sleepy Hollow is a modern-day retelling of the American short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving. The TV series tells of how Ichabod Crane dies in 1781 after he kills the Headless Horseman, but mysteriously awakens again in 2013 to find that the Horseman is again wreaking havoc in the town of Sleepy Hollow. He partners with Lt. Abbie Mills to stop the evil being from murdering more people and sparking the return of dark, supernatural forces to the earth. Sleepy Hollow premiered on September 16, 2013 in the US and scored a massive 10 million viewers, which bodes well for the Philippine and Asian premiere on October 19.

October 19 is the night to stay addicted to FOX as it shows not one but three long-awaited series premieres!

Norman Vincent Peale

"Six Attitudes for Winners" by Norman Vincent Peale

I have always been a fan of Books that have positive message to the readers. A book of inspirations, life lessons and stories of love and reflection.

Now I’m sharing to you this book that contains more wisdom than you might think; ‘Six Attitudes for Winners’ by Norman Vincent Peale who is also the author of the international bestseller ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’.

Peale provides the secrets of a winning attitude. Using the practical help from this little pocket book you can learn how to face fears, confront worries, solve problems, put excitement into your life, throw away personality crutches, and anticipate the future.

Here are some reviews about the book:

“This book is truly packed with so much helpful information. Don’t let the size of the book fool you. Although it is pocket size, it is jam-packed with so many lessons for all to lead their life by.” 
–Monique Nunn

“Dr. Peale’s ability to put a lot of valid, life-changing material in a small book is demonstrated eloquently in this work. He wastes no words in getting straight to the point of how to improve your life. The first attitude he addresses is to approach problems from the proper perspective, i.e., not from the mindset of a victim, but of an overcomer! Problems are temporary. They help mold character.

We’re reminded of ultimate reality as Dr. Peale writes, “in the last analysis, only the God-directed life can attain true and basic success.” The work ethic is stressed also. These truths are doable, time-tested, and not bound by any culture. They work if you work them.” –Dr. W. G. Covington, Jr.

“Frustrated, depressed, hopeless, need guidance, this book is for you!” –SCP Brother Salvatore


Published by Lifebooks, “Six Attitudes for Winners” is now available in all branches of National Bookstore, Powerbooks, Philippine Christian Bookstore and Fully Booked nationwide.

Star Movies MOVIE MARATHON

Star Movies is bringing back its annual tradition in search for the most enduring movie buff in Star Movies Movie Marathon which will happen on October 8, 2013 at the Resorts World Manila. There will be a round table interview at 6:00 pm with Mr. Jude Turcuato, Head of FOX International Channels Philippines as he will talk about this fun and unique event dedicated to all movie fanatics.

At 8:00 pm, National Geographic Channel will hold a press screening of a new series that delve into the Philippines’ undying love for the sport of basketball titled Pinoy Hoops which will premiere on October 21Monday at 9pm

Pinoy Hoops is a three-part series and is presented by Rafe Bartholomew, author of the best-selling book Pacific Rims, who will guide viewers on a journey to the very heart of a basketball-obsessed nation to uncover why the sport has been embraced wholeheartedly by Filipinos from all walks of life.

Gloc-9

Pinoy rap is going through a revival but Gloc-9's kind of rap remains.
At the heart of Gloc-9's icon is the fact of his creativity. This is a rapper who dares writes songs from nation, trailing an eye on the things we fail to see, listening to words no one else hears.
If the first single off his new album Liham at Lihim is any indication, then Gloc-9 has again raised the bar for songwriting in general, Pinoy rap in particular.
A collaboration with rock icon Rico Blanco, “Magda” is Gloc-9's storytelling at its best. For one thing, he doesn't take on the persona of Magda; instead he speaks as Ernesto, telling the story of Magda – the little of it that he knows. For another, Magda's story doesn't unfold easily, where many things are left unsaid, and much of what is truth happens in a letter. This is also why Gloc-9 thinks “Magda” the best choice for a carrier single, given the CD's title.
But Magda's complexity, as Liham at Lihim suggests, is borne of the fact that she is trapped in what she does, and we cannot understand why. Gloc-9 doesn't insist that we understand it, but through Ernesto we are being made to see the sadness in this situation, the nostalgia for the past, the longing for better.
Talking about the inspiration for the song, Gloc-9 says: “I was thinking of reasons why a daughter who was most precious to her father, could end up living the life of a prostitute. One line from the chorus goes “Magdalena, anong problema? / Alam naman natin na dati kang Nena / at sa ‘yong ama, ikaw ay prinsesa.”
That chorus is sung by Blanco, something that Gloc-9 is grateful for. “Rico is one of the most talented singers we have right now, and even though I wrote the song, Rico is the only one who can sing the chorus the way he does and bring to the song his own uniqueness. Sobrang galing,” he says.
“Magda” reminds us that there are many difficult stories to tell, and very few who dare tell it the way Gloc-9 and Rico Blanco do. This song reminds us that there are no judgements, as there are questions. And there is no right and wrong, as there is need and love. If not hope.
Without a doubt, Pinoy rap's going through a revival. With “Magda” and all of Liham at Lihim, Gloc-9 proves he is in a class all his own.
Liham at Lihim will be released in October 2013. This is Gloc-9's second album with Universal Records after 2012's Mga Kwento ng Makata and the critically-acclaimed hit single “Sirena.” Liham at Lihim features Gloc-9 collaborations with Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Quest, Marc Abaya, Zia Quizon, Kamikazee, Eunice of Gracenote, Denise Barbacena, and Sly Kane.
Here are the tracks with preview:
1.      Huminahon Ka (featuring Sly Kane)
2.      Takip Silim (featuring Regine Velasquez-Alcasid)
3.      KMT (featuring Eunice Jorge of Gracenote)
4.      Magda (featuring of Rico Blanco)

6.      Kuwento Mo
