we've all got our junk...

and my junk is you.
-Spring Awakening

so my dog, kitchie (not the one who had the puppies), wakes me up every morning at 9am. regardless of how early or late i sleep; i wake up at 9 everyday and the day is forced upon me. so im starting this just like how i write most of my songs... without knowing where it's going. my sister, jasmine (killajamzz), is watching the Twilight bonus features on blu-ray right now and my other sister, justine, is at school at the moment. i just got my piano tuned by the way. expect more videos with just piano... that instrument is powerful, let me tell ya.

BAND[AID] was last friday. it was a benefit show featuring local talent. it was one crazy experience. the crowd was ridiculously supportive and it honestly was one of the best crowds i've played for. sold over 50 Peace, Love, and AJ shirts and received some pretty awesome gifts from some fans. from a stuffed koala bear to a batman easter egg. thank you to dusty and rb for always handling the merch so well. here's a video, i need to speak no longer about this show, the videos explain it all.





so im back in cali, and have seen pretty much everyone... although most people are still in school, we've all been chillin. got a gym pass, and am trying to look decent for the beach this summer haha. since i've been back, i watched kina live at UCLA, watched Star Trek with david choi and friends, said goodbye to a dear friend Randolph at the airport as he was leaving to the philippines, played piano for Lydia Paek again and it was so refreshing, and stayed up past 2am every single day. more to come. much love.

also spent this weekend with jesse barrera , gracienne, larry, and jamil, tin and alan from SD. heres a pic of my puppies jesse and grace took.

Aww, I wish I could've been at Band[aid]! From the videos, it sounded like it was such an awesome show. I was planning to go, but school got in the way. Oh well, I hope to be at a show soon, once school's over at least. Glad you're back in Cali!

Your puppies are soo adorable!
Love, Cheryl

2. Those puppies are really cute
3. Isn't a tuned piano one of the greatest joys in a musician's life?

i just watched the video that you and your friend jess did of 'such great heights'. it is my favourite song ever, and i never thought i'd find a better cover of it than the one by iron and wine until i saw yours. just wanted to let you know that :)

Hielow. Well... my uncle said you're a cool guy.. I wouldn't actually know some awesome guys like you if not for my uncle. And want's me to meet cool people like you and kuya Allen and kuya Mikey from Morse All Male and Ate Karen from Morse All Female and his other cool friends.. He always let me listen to his favorite songs and introduce me to cooL songs.. So he gave me the title of your songs and I really like it. Anyways.. I really love that song of yours with the title Starlit Nights and it's s sweet of you to dedicate it for you GF ate Marilyn. I'm not sure if that's the correct name or spelling..Just heard it from the video. ok.. Hope you could also visit the Philippines.. And if you have time, I would like to suggest that you join this Filipino site, akomismo.org .... gotta go.. take care and keep it up.. ciaow!

Hey AJ! I found out about your music when I saw you and Cathy Nguyen covering Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I just couldn't stop listening to it, your voice is so beautiful! You and Jess Delgado did an awesome job in Such Great Heights too. It's my favorite. I love your songs, mainly Showstopper and She was mine. I'm from Brazil and I lived in Norcal for a year. Believe me, I understand your issues in Boston. Although Norcal is not even that bad like Boston, I missed Brazil's weather so much. Anyways, keep on playing and being awesome the way you are. I hope to go up to California soon to catch one of you shows. PEACE! :D

we can not deny that junk food can be delicious and catch our attention specially when we go out with some relatives or friends. But the junk food can be harmful for our welfare or health, resulting in a obesity or even affecting our sexual development. So the relation ships are affected too. We need to change eating habits,start exercising frequently and if you have erectil dysfunctions the better alternative could be buy viagra. But the most important thing is take care our health.

I think the obesity is very danger for everybody, is like a pump that can explot any time. So is necesary to take care exercising and taking good and healthy food and stop eating junk food for ever!!!!. The life is too short, so we need to take care of us every single day for enjoy the things that the life gave to us. I bought my house through costa rica homes for sale and i enjoy it every day.
