Hip-Hop Grannies in Beijing, China

As I went home from work early morning of this week, I was so amazed to see in Unang Hirit the so-called “Granny Hip-Hop Instructor” in Beijing China. To my amazement to the so-called “Hip-Hop Granny”, I decided to search it on the web and post it here in my blog. Hope you guys will be amazed, too. ^_^

Hip-Hop dance is a social or choreographed dance style primarily danced to a Hip-Hop music (a rhythmic, dynamic and usually fast type of music), which is commonly popular to teenagers. But who could have thought that this special form of dancing can also become a trend amongst senior citizens in Beijing China where a “Hip-Hop Grannies” were formed.

Since its foundation way back 2004, it has been its yearly routine to honor outstanding personalities whose lives and achievements have contributed to society in a positive way. This is done by giving a “People of the Year” award to those exemplary individuals. As for me, I think this is one way of saying “Sikat ang Pinoy”.

How You Can Help Haiti Earthquake Victims

Last Wednesday before heading to work, I was able to watch news on TV about the earthquake that hits Haiti and I was so saddened to see thousands of people died in the said disaster.

Haiti is considered to be the poorest in the Western Hemisphere with four out of five people living in poverty and more than half in abject poverty. There is concern that Haitian emergency services are unable to cope with a major disaster and the country is “economically vulnerable” by the Food and Agriculture Organization. Plus, it has been struck by multiple hurricanes which caused flooding and widespread damage in the country. Its long history of political and corruption has also added to the turmoil.

Feast of Black Nazarene (Quiapo, Manila)

The 9th of January is considered to be one of the most spectacular religious events in the Philippine history. Because it is during this day, Filipinos celebrates the Feast of the Black Nazarene --- a day-long event and long-held practice of Filipino Catholics.

The Black Nazarene is famously noted for its devotees who walk the procession streets barefooted as to imitate Jesus Christ on his way to Mount Cavalry. It is a life-size, dark-colored wooden sculpture of Jesus Christ carrying a cross which is said to be miraculous by many of its Filipino devotees. Its statue was brought here in Manila by a Spanish priest way back 1607 aboard a ship. The ship then caught fire, burning the image and thus came to be known as the “Black Nazarene”. Though its image has been burnt, people still decided not just to preserve it but to honor it, as well. And ever since then, miraculous things have been experienced by those who touch its image.
