Kalei’s 2016 concert adventures ended with David’s last tour stop in Sacramento just before Christmas. It was a very special ending to a fantastic year with the cherry on top coming at the VIP as David addressed her by name. :)

IT’S BEEN 5YEARS ALREADY SINCE THE FIRST DAY/EPISODE ONE OF NANDITO AKO AIRED ON TV5! WOW! Kalei reminded me of this fact late last night. What a birthday present!!  On that day, (also her birthday), David Archuleta as Josh Bradley officially came into our home and hearts, along with Holly, Anya, Chit, and the rest of the cast on Channel 5 mini series. I guess because we had followed the filming over the course of January (2012), I didn’t remember right off the bat that the actual premier of the Filipino show starring David  didn’t actually begin airing until well into the month of February!! In fact, David was on his way back to the US the day episode #1 was broadcast.

What fan could ever forget the emotions that welled up inside and flooded across social media that day… and every day for the next month to follow?! David had accomplished so very much!! In such a short time frame David proved not only to himself but to the masses that he was a true actor, one to be believed and one who was lifted and embraced.

And so episode 1 began with David as Josh Bradley on stage~ “So when you find your true love, hold onto it and never let go, cause that’s what I would do.” <— Oh Josh, (and My Dear Writer) ~ you sure knew how to capture our hearts. :)  Today in honor of this anniversary, I’m posting the trailer to the series below! So. Many. Memories!

If you’d like to revisit the FOD (Pastel’s post) on the first day Nandito Ako aired, CLICK HERE.  If you’d like to revisit my 1st year anniversary post of the series (2013), CLICK HERE. And in case you’d forgotten, we have the links listed above (on the side right) where you can re watch Nandito Ako. Credit to JR4DA, The Nandito Ako Television Series, and to Jenny!!

And of course, David so beautifully in fine Tagalog, sang the title song “Nandito Ako”~ this video was his live performance at Talentadong Pinoy.

A very special birthday for Amber!

imikimi – sharing creativity

A person’s golden or grand birthday, also referred to as their “lucky birthday”, “champagne birthday”, or “star birthday”,  occurs when they turn the age of their birth day (e.g., when someone born on the 25th of the month turns 25 or when someone born on the ninth turns nine)

Well today Amber Archuleta turns 18!!! On the 18th of February!   Wishing her a very special day and hopefully a special musical wish from big bro~

Snippet Sharing

We posted a bunch of concert snippets this week and many of you joined in!  I love snippets because they usually focus on a very exciting, interesting part of the song and has some special differentiator from the rest of the video.

Here are some here!

From Muldur. The Prayer from the last Layton show

And from Muldur. Joy to the World snippet from the same Layton show!
