Rising Pinoy Soul Music Artist: Sino Sikat

First heard the group (can’t exactly say “saw” because my eyes are near-sighted. I can only see the silhouette of Kat Agarrado [vocals], Nick Azarcon [guitars], Reli de Vera [drums] and Nikki Cabardo [keyboard]) perform live at the Indie Festival at Le Pavillion in Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City last December of 2005. They sang “Akin Ka”.

Who’s getting more popular nowadays? Definitely it’s Sino Sikat. Support Original Pilipino Music! Their full-length debut album is out now. The songs in the following videos are included in their released CD.

That Epson Stylus CX2900!

Another addition to the things i call the product of my sweat and blood.

Finally, I bought it after fixing some issues regarding my ATM card at the Metrobank! BTW, I’m not happy with how the lady in the bank treated me. She was unapproachable and obviously irritated answering my questions. Makes me wanna say “Sorry, I don’t go to banks. Neither do I know any bank procedures that’s why I’m asking”. She also keeps on calling me “kuya” (translated as old brother in Filipino).

Back to my new possession. It’s 3-in-1. You can use it as a scanner, printer and copier. Best for my business and personal use. I tried scanning and the result so far is OK.

The only Koreanovela or TV show im watching at the moment without forcing myself to like it.

There’s something in this series that made me a follower. Its funny at times even if it doesn’t intends to make you laugh and the scene’s mood is serious. Definitely won’t bore you.

Take a “solo trip” with Kapatid band’s latest music

I’m currently whistling the intro of Kapatid‘s new song, Luha, from their sophomore album of the same title. This is the way an alternative song should sounds like. Another addition to my favorites.

A Catchy Jologs Hip-Hop Song

I first heard Gagong Rapper‘s “Kabet” while inside the jeep and I admit, I got LSS (Last Song Syndrome) with the song. I guess its because of the melody.

Kabet was sung in the early part of the video

Kabet is a Filipino slang which means a mistress, number two, the other girl, or kulasisi.
