    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be a lot more useful than ever

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on
    Opera. Outstanding Blog!

    What status did Charice reached in the Philippines. I’ve read in some forums that it reached platinum after 6 weeks upon release. Is this true?

    WOW!! A thousand fold. Amazing talent that will endure the test of times, known the world over for such a young age with standing ovations in every concerts is nothing short of a fairy tale story found with a golden voice. She is like a morning ‘Sunshine’ that brings warmth full of promises and love and comes with a lots of heart, ‘Corazon’ indeed. Sing on Charice. Proud Pinoy.

    Congratulations, Charice. I am truly proud of your accomplishments. You are such a rare gem who come once in a while in human history. There are not many who are as gifte as you are, and I hope that you will continue to use that for the good. This is just the beginning of your super stardom in the likes of the late Michael Jackson! You are not a female Beiber because in my opinion you are a female Michael J, oozing with such incredible and varied talents! Sometimes I feel so envious of you because you seem to have them all. But at the same time I am sooo proud of what you have achieved.

    I hope that in your up and coming tour with DFF in Japan, you will try to go an extra mile of greeting your Japanese fans, not with one line Japanese greetings, but conveying your thoughts in the Japanese language, even if it’s a memorized one. Your Japanese fans will truly be grateful to you. They have embraced you as their own, patronizing your album as they do with their own artists. They will truly be honored and they’ll love you more. This would be a great way of saying Thank You! to them. They are and will be your loyal fans. They are so proud of you, and they put their pockets where their mouths are. It will be in Asia that your super stardom will begin and spread out like a wildfire. Take care and be good always as you are! :D

Wish God hears my prayer…
