Privileged Or Entitled... What You Need To Know NOW! 

You Gotta Be One or the Other!

Seriously though, if you still carry an attitude of entitlement (from other people) and you're in your mid 20s onwards, I'll say "Shame on you!" because unless you're royalty, you're not entitled to ANYTHING!

And often times, we give the word, "Privileged" a bad rap as well. But the reality... being privileged is... a privilege! And if we understand what it truly means, maybe... just maybe, we can get ahead in life - the right way!

Sit back and watch my short video…

A Pinoy Rockin' Christmas Party 2018 

It was a Pinoy Rock Christmas Party at the end of the day at the De Castro residence. But it was a crazy full day for me, Janelle and Cassidy. 

The holiday season can be overwhelming but at the end of the day, we still got through it and everything turned out alright. 

Thanks for watching!!!

Beware the Friend Zone In 2019 

You are in love with another person... but he/she doesn't feel the same way. You're in a dilemma because you don't want to get turned down, embarrassed or to outright lose this special person in your life. So what do you do? You do the most selfless, most stupidest thing known to mankind... you settle to be placed in the FRIEND ZONE!

Don't fool yourself, there's no getting out of it UNLESS you make it clear that you don't want to be there anymore.

In 2019, take a chance! Let the one you love know how…

Let It Snow by Jaja And Paco 

Oh the weather outside is frightful, 
But the fire is so delightful, 
And since we've no place to go, 
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

It doesn't show signs of stopping, 
And I've bought some corn for popping, 
The lights are turned way down low, 
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

When we finally kiss goodnight, 
How I'll hate going out in the storm! 
But if you'll really hold me tight, 
All the way home I'll be warm. 

The fire is slowly dying, 
And, my dear, we're still good-bying, 
But as long as…

I'll Pick My Family Over My Bandmates 

I've matured. There, I'm admitting to it right now. I failed in making a ton of happy childhood memories with my firstborn, Heaven. I'm just glad he's forgiven me for being a LOUSY father while he was growing up. For his sake, and for the rest of my children's sake, I will NOT disregard them ever. 

Jonathan Buencamino prioritizes his son, Kurt, over band stuff. Perf de Castro does the same thing too! Why can't I?

So yeah... this blog will serve as my accountability reminder that my wife and kids will…

To My Family, I'm a Husband and a Dad... That's All 

Janelle and I decided to take all of the kids and my mother-in-law, with us to San Francisco. We were there for Pinoy Rock Revue, wherein I play drums as we commemorate the songs created by bands AnakBayan, Maria Cafra, Sampaguita and Juan Dela Cruz. We also featured Basti Artadi of Wolfgang as our guest vocalist.

I'd like to stress that the journey to San Francisco was surprisingly more interesting than being in San Francisco. It's because my family and our road trip bonding made it super special!

Make Memories With Your Family Before It’s Too Late 

It took me awhile to figure it out but today, nothing is more meaningful than spending quality time and building priceless memories with my wife and children. I’ve realized that these children won’t be young forever. In a few years, they’ll be on their own. 

Please watch this short video. Skip if you must but please watch til the end.

You Shouldn’t Compromise | Relationship Basics 

You shouldn’t compromise in a relationship. There is a better way. I talk about it in this vlog episode. Cheers!

com·pro·mise /ˈkämprəˌmīz/ - the acceptance of standards that are lower than is desirable.

We’ve heard it many times before. We’ve been advised to compromise ourselves to save our relationship. The reality is compromising hurts our relationship. There is another option...

It’s called “Give And Take”.

Navigate Your Way to a Better Relationship 

Navigate your way to a better relationship! It’s as easy as putting your destination into your GPS and simply follow what it tells you to do. HUH!?!

Imagine a couple, husband and wife, interacting on a day to day basis. What is their typical dynamics? Who gets to decide where to go, what to do and when to do it? Is it the wife? Is it the husband? Or both? How does it work and how should it work between a couple? 

In spite of specifics, there is a general consensus that the man should take the lead. He…

A Daughter Is a Daughter Forever! 

I spent one crazy Saturday afternoon with Cassidy, my only daughter. It was a long day and I took her to work with me. But that was just the bare minimum of what I had to do that day.

I took her to church with me, where I had rehearsals for praise and worship. I took her to different cities to check out some houses that Janelle and I have taken an interest in. We had late lunch.

Then I took her to Perf De Castro's place to watch my jam session with powerhouse artists such as Perf De Castro, Basti…
