Hozier

When I heard the song "Take Me to Church", it sounded weird for me at first, but I ended up loving most of Hozier's songs, especially "Jackie & Wilson”. I kind of like the indie & blues feel of his songs and the lyrics are quite interesting. Hozier is an Irish musician, which I thought was not very common from that country, but when I looked up, I learned that some famous groups like U2, The Corrs, and The Cranberries, Sinéad O'Connor and Enya are all Irish. Aside from that, recently, I noticed that, European artists are slowly taking over the mainstream music, just like Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Avicii, Adele and Birdy. I'd say, in general, their music has a unique tonality, which isn't hard for me to appreciate as my first love for music was greatly influenced by a European group, none other than the legendary, The Beatles.

It's Chinese New Year, and I'm highlighting this day, because I finally took the plunge and made a big, necessary, exciting, but scary move.

My fave month

My favourite month is here, and the cold weather makes it even better. Moreover, there’s a slim chance of tropical cyclone in the country, so hopefully less stress for that department. However, there has been a lot of invitations for lectures that sometimes, they overlap. Like for next week, I had to cancel my schedule in a certain university since I was selected to attend a training at the Central Office. I’m glad I was chosen for this, which is scheduled on Feb 8-13. I’m somewhat excited about it since it will be a train-the-trainers kind of workshop in cooperation with UK Met Office. Being in Manila isn’t exactly desirable for me, but at least, our accommodation and the activities are just in one place so I wouldn’t be bothered daily by the traffic problems.

It will just be a short month, but a lot of happenings.
