‘Fly Me To The Moon’

Written by Rody Vera and directed by Paul Jake Paule, “Fly Me To The Moon” is about Melanie who embarks on a journey to Japan to help her family make ends meet. Using her charm, she boards on a ship full of flesh-hungry sea crew, and finds comfort in Jo, a karayuki-san who longs for her one true love.

On the ship, the two draw parallels between their lives as they unfold their own stories. Soon, Melanie and Jo part ways to follow their own pavement, but still keep a piece of each other’s heart.

Well I’d really want to tell you the rest of the story, but, I am told, you have to watch a performance of the play……so be it. Just enjoy the story written by Carlos Palanca memorial Awards for Literature Hall of Famer, Rody Vera!!

The Yuchengco Museum invites you to the opening of the exhibit  of Yang Ding Xian entitled  “Blessings Manila - An Offering Of Hope To The Philippines”. 

Yang Ding Xian (born in 1966, Taiwan) pursued his art education at the Chinese Culture University (1992), National Taiwan Normal University Graduate Institute of Design (2000), and the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing (doctorate, 2013).  

His works reinterpret traditional art and symbolism using media such as oil painting and installation. The artist is interested in producing contemporary expressions and responses to traditional formats, forms, and messages encountered across the long and rich history of Chinese art.  

Yang Ding Xian has held 18 solo exhibitions since 1998 and is the recipient of several important awards in his home country. He currently lives and works in Taichung, Taiwan.

You will have all the time to view this exhibit as it runs until January 16, 2018. I hope I will have the chance to send you a friendly reminder for you to visit the Yuchengco Museum  at the RCBC Plaza, Corner Ayala & Senator Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City By the way, this exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Hiraya Gallery and I am told is worth viewing……

In my email, I received a letter from Bernie Lopez and at the top of  the letter were the  letters “a.m.d.g.”

As a young boy studying at the Ateneo de Manila grade school we were told and made to have these letters on top of every page of paper we wrote on.  A.M.+D.G. stands for Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam meaning “all of the greater glory of God”

Having been out of the Ateneo  for decades, I hardly remember the practice but when I received a letter with “a.m.+ d.g. I was stunned and proceeded immediately to read its contents.

The letter was about the 100- year anniversary of Our lady of Fatima.  With it was a novena to our lady which should end on October 17, 2017. P of the novena includes praying one “Hail Mary for World peace and that mankind be kept away from disasters.

Another “Hail Mary” was requested to be recited for Man’s inner peace and that of his family and friends. Still, another “Hail Mary was told to us to pray for the forgiveness and for the reparations of sins we may have committed

Getting re- acquainted with “a.m.+d.g.” made me feel very good…. The request for prayers  should never be forgotten and should be taken seriously.

This makes me stop and wonder how relatives and friends of stage diva and artist, Celia Diaz Laurel prayed the “Hail Mary” as she was confined in the hospital.

Indeed, this prayer is super powerful and I hear that prayers have been granted; and that Celia Laurel is fast recovering. This is the most wonderful news I received today.

So who cares if today is Friday the 13th?!!!

It will always be a good day specially when one prays.

Have a prayerful weekend…..its great for the soul!
