JANUARY NA NAMAN. Bagong buwan, bagong taon at bagong simula para sa ating lahat. Isang mahabang paglalakbay na kung ano ang mangyayari sa hinaharap, we don’t know. We can only pray and hope for the best.
The month of January was named after the Roman god Janus. Sa Roman mythology, siya ang “the god of good beginnings.” He is the doorkeeper of heaven and the god of beginnings and endings. May dalawang mukha ang kanyang estatwa, one on each side. His figure represents time dahil nakikita ng kanyang mga mukha ang nakaraan at ang future. Janus symbolizes what happened in the old year while looking forward to the new one.
I asked some stars about the most memorable things that happened to them in 2010 and what do they look forward to in 2011. Here are their answers:
Erik Santos – I have wonderful memories about my career last year. Nandiyan ang ASAP XV, Star Power where I get the chance to work with Megastar Sharon Cuneta, an acting stint in Maalaala Mo Kaya, and sold-out concerts last February and September which I produced. Masaya rin ako dahil healthy ang aking family. Sana this year, I have more projects. I am looking forward to a musical that I’m set to do, my US and European tour scheduled this first quarter, and my new album.
Sitti – I experienced my first real heartbreak last year. Hehe… Looking forward to my new album this year, more breakthroughs, more shows abroad.
Amy Perez – Ang 2010 ay ang first Christmas namin sa new house kaya naman very thankful talaga kami and at the same time excited. Thank you Lord for all the blessings!
Direk GB Sampedro – The changes that happened in my career. It was a welcome change that I became a part of the Kapatid Network. I look forward to doing more projects with TV5.
Laarni Lozada – To have been accepted by Backroom and be handled by a talent manager who is the best in the entertainment industry. I’m looking forward to a productive year as a singer. I want to share my music to a wide range of audience here and abroad.
Hermes Bautista – The most memorable thing that happened to me last year was the life after the Big Brother experience. My life somehow changed unexpectedly. I’m hoping for a successful showbiz career for 2011 and for the coming years.
Let us look forward to a brighter and bigger 2011 with hopes for peace and prosperity for all. Sana ay mas maraming masasayang pangyayari sa mundo ng showbiz. May the movie industry produce more quality films that will showcase the Filipino talent. I hope the international music scene will open its elusive doors to more Filipino artists. Sana ay lalo pang makilala ang kagalingan ng mga Pinoys abroad. Please no more disasters which could affect millions of homes, communities, properties and life. Magkapatawaran at magkabati na rin sana ang mga dating nagkasamaan ng loob. Hindi ba mas masarap umpisahan ang taon if you start on the right foot? Mas masarap ngumiti kesa sumimangot. Sabi nga nila, it takes more facial muscles to frown than to smile. Subukan mo, kaibigan.
Happy New Year!
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
