Getting My Feet Back on the Ground

I always say that we make our own destiny. No matter what happens, no matter how difficult life was, no matter how our dreams gone astray, as long as God is Emmanuel, we can live life to the fullest.

And yes! Bro. Bo said, "Your past does not determine your future." How true indeed. You can always defy the present norms of society if its detrimental to your progress in whatever way!

These all I can attest with the unfortunate experiences I had. So take it from me again. When you stumble, stand up firm and move not only ON but UP!

The smile on my face is a manifestation! Thanks to God I'm still alive and kickin'...

Igorots in Korea through Arirang Video


Igorota Song

Help us promote this Song. Super ganda ang lyrics and the melody, nahohomesick tuloy ako! Atlast the song is finally uploaded sa youtube. Most people from Kias know this song way back 1990's because this song was introduced by DAnny Tawanna who was the composer. Jun was so lucky that Danny gave him all his compositions to record. Danny is likewise lucky to have Jun record his songs. For everybody's info Danny suffered from a stroke and is now living in Nueva Viscaya. Just don't know if Jun pushed his plan of having Danny in his audience when he launched this album. (rainne68)
