The Philippines on a mid-summer night's dream...

One of my Shakespeare favorites is A Mid-summer Night's Dream. The story tells about how, on a mid-summer night, a confusion had taken on the better side of the characters and they fell into a pitiful folly. But the drama turned out to be just a good dream. Well, with all the confusion that is taking place now: the jueteng list, the IIRC report, and Malacanang currently in New York, a mid-summer night's dream could actually be casting a spell on us. I am loudly snoring and deep in my slumber still but I can hear Charice singing on GLEE! Shucks! I hate it when I have to wake up. It had been a good dream but Charice putting the Philippines on the global map again is certainly ahappy way to wake up.

I'm really hoping too that things happening today for our dear country is just a dream but it isn't. Anyway I love A Mid-summer Night's Dream and its a musical I don't like Charice but I salute her performance in the pilot episode of Glee Season 2. She is pretty commendable and she is one of the positive thing for the Philippines right now. I hope more and more Filipino gets to be inspired by her performance and awe the people all of the world to what a Filipino can do. I love Sunshine Corazon from the Philippines

Hi hex, I didn't like Charice in the beginning. As Lea Salonga said, the singing was birit. I am not for such kind of singing. Eventually though, Charice developed and turned out to be real good. Her performance in Glee showed a more mature artist. Crossing my fingers and toes that our politics mature, too. The UP activists became wild yesterday and the squatters displayed the ugly side of the deprived the other day at North EDSA.

I didn't like her too but it was a different Charice in that pilot episode of Glee. There is another Filipino who made it to Glee. Her name is Hazel Faith dela Cruz, an architecture student from Mapua, a schoolmate of mine. She won the Glee contest in ETC so she would also be guesting in Glee. I do hope for that too, Politics has never matured since we gain and ran our own government. I was just watching a Tanghalang UP Diliman show earlier entitled "Information for Foreigners". A satire that tells the story of some activist, authoritative control of the government and the rich and also dictatorship in the Philippines and other countries alike.
