CaUgHt In ThE SuN

Caught in the Sun - Course of Nature

You're my distanced destination of choice
I'd give anything just to hear your voice
I couldn't pass you on the street
Without saying a word
Most times I missed the voice
That goes unheard

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something
Never to be enough

People everywhere how could I be sure
Is it you that I have been looking for
What would it take for me to be comfortable
With you, with me you're the chosen one

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something
Never to be enough

You are there for me this I hope and pray
You will wait for me, I wont be to late

What if I missed you
You got caught in the sun
What if I did something
Never to be enough

Will you wait for me
Or will I be to late this time
You are there for me this I hope and pray

How To: Choose A Good Partner

The best way to choose a good partner is using your emotional intelligence!

1. Sexual attraction is based on a primitive and powerful feeling that can "hijack" us.

It comes from the reptilian brain and is automatic and powerful because it relates to our survival. It is not, in itself, a reason to act or react. Don’t let yourself get "hijacked." Take a second look; get up to your limbic brain (bonding, parenting, relationships) and your neocortex (thinking)for this important decision. More on this later.

2. Touching is very important to our mental and physical health.

Choose a partner who is affectionate, who likes to touch you and be touched.

3. Most communication is nonverbal.

Choose a partner who looks at you with affection and kindness in their eyes. Emotions are contagious and largely transmitted through the eyes!

4. Think as well as feel your way through this decision.

Emotional intelligence means using all 3 of your brains -- including the neocortex, the thinking brain. Contrary to what some people think, EQ doesn't mean "only emotions." It means thinking as well as feeling. Consider compatibility -- family background, values, goals, how he or she takes care of their physical and mental health. Consider general living style. The find-a-roommate-site asks just a few questions. Among them are -- drug use, when you like to get up and go to bed, your level of neatness, and how quiet you like it to be. Pay attention. You’ll be living with this person. Do use your intuition. It's a strong guide. Take advantage of it. If you need to develop your intuition, work with an EQ Coach or Intuition coach.

5. Consider the emotional self-awareness of your partner, and their awareness of your emotions; their ability at empathy.

Studies show that one of the most predictive traits for compatibility is if one partner is able to sense the sadness of the other.

6. How optimistic is this person ?

Optimism is the facilitator of all the emotional intelligence competencies. In addition, optimists live longer, enjoy better health, heal more quickly, and accomplish more. Emotions are contagious, and optimism is a forcefield you want in your life. It can be learned.

7. Be intentional and expect it in your partner.

Intentionality is an EQ competency that means saying what you mean and meaning what you say. It also means being accountable for the motives behind your actions. You’ll need to be in touch with this yourself, and have a partner who is as well, because partnering requires a commitment, i.e., Intentionality. Intentionality means you’re not "allowed" to say, "I didn’t mean to ..." High-level skill. Good one to look for.

8. Consider the level of your intended partner’s resilience.

You’ll be together a long time, through ups and downs, and life can throw some curves. How do they manage adverse events and setbacks? Do they bounce back eventually? Have they been able to grow through adversity, not just go through it?

9. How do you and your partner manage anger--your own anger and that of the other?

Studies show that the most successful couples are those who are able to soothe one another instead of agitating and escalating in an argument.

10. How balanced is their life?

Do they combine learning, working and leisure? Studies show that people who die in their 5th and 6th decade have this life trajectory: school, then work, then leisure. Resilient seniors combine all three during all stages of life. You'll want the one you love to be around a long time!


Side A is one of my favorite OPM band, and this song entitled "Till" is the one I love most among their songs. Here it goes and I hope you'll like it! Enjoy listening!

We've been together
For quite sometime now
And you still shine in my eyes

I searched all my life
'Cause in my heart I knew
I'd find someone like you

And if I could live (Cause if I could live)
My life all over again
It would still be with you
No one else
Can offer you a heart so true
No one else
Can love you like I do

'Till the sun fails to shine
'Till the clock runs out of time
I will still be in love with you
'Till the moon and the stars
Fail to brighten up the night
I'll still be inlove with you

La, la, la ('till all the seas run dry)
La, la, la ('till flowers touch the sky)

I can see my tomorrow's
In the palm of your hand
There's only you and I

We'll hold forever
And know we will never
Lose the love that we have

(Repeat Refrain, Chorus and Bridge 2x)

.....I'll still be loving you

Ely Buendia Now In Stable Condition!

The Eraserheads Reunion is all over the radio and TV. I was shocked when I found out that Ely collapsed in the middle of the Reunion concert. I want to know the details on what actually happened to him despite of knowing that he had heart surgeries and heart attacks in the past. I'd like to share this article which gives detailed information on what really happened to Mr. Ely Buendia.

Ely Buendia is in stable condition and fans of the legendary Eraserheads frontman can now have a collective sigh of relief.

"He's ok. Please don't worry," assured Pupil co-manager Day Cabuhat to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a short text message sent last August 30. Buendia was rushed to the Makati Medical center last August 30, after reportedly experiencing chest pains while in the middle of the Eraserheads' 20-minute break during the band's highly anticipated reunion concert held at the Fort Bonifacio Global City open field in Taguig City.

According to some of the accounts given by close friends who were present backstage, Buendia reportedly collapsed and had to be put on a stretcher. In a TV interview after the concert, bandmates Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala, and Marcus Adoro said that they saw Buendia being attended by paramedics with his blood pressure being chacked. Minutes later, they saw the singer-song writer being rushed to an ambulance.

Without their main singer, the three remaining band members accompanied by Ely's sister, Lally, were left without no choice but to face the thousands of fans who were anxiously waiting for the second set. They announced the concert's cancellation and asked everyone to offer a minute of silence for Buendia.

Ely had gone through heart surgery early last year after suffering a heart attack in an out-of-town gig with his current band, Pupil. But his recent health dilemma was being linked to stress and fatigue factors. Two days before the reunion concert, Ely's mother, Lisette Buendia, passed away. That combined with all the stress and pressure leading to the actual concert apparently took its toll on the enigmatic frontman. Also, on the same day of the event, the Eraserheads went to the venue to conduct a sound check and a final rehersal which reportedly lasted until 3 a.m.

A close friend of the band theorized that Ely's unstable emotional state combined with the stress of having to deliver in front of rabid fans perhaps overwhelmed Buendia causing his health to breakdown in the face of gnawing pressure.

Ely Buendia rushed to the hospital in the middle of Eraserheads reunion concert

Buendía joined Marasigan, Adoro, and Zabala for a one-night only reunion show on August 30, 2008 at the Fort Open Field, Taguig City. The concert, however, was cut short after Ely collapsed due to emotional stress. They were already halfway of a planned 30-song setlist as Ely reportedly collapsed backstage during a break and was rushed to the Makati Medical Hospital. He was, however, reported to be in stable condition. Buddy had checked on Ely in his tent right after they went to their planned 20 minute break and saw that he already was on an oxygen mask with paramedics checking his blood pressure. As he left and came back, paramedics were already taking Ely on an ambulance. Bandmates Buddy, Raimund and Marcus further said that they had no idea that Ely was already having difficulty performing.

PEP reported that Buendia's sister, Lally, broke the news to the concert-goers at the Fort Bonifacio Global City Open Field.

There's something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you're so worth the fight

My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear... Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear... Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting

Theres something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
More subtle than something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing

Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear... Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear... Something I've not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
