Board of Accountancy

You must have heard the news sometime back in April that they the CPA Board Exams that was initially scheduled for May 2014 was postponed indefinitely due to the vacancies in the Board of Accountancy, which administers the tests.  When I heard this news, I thought it was crazy.  How could this have reached this stage?  But anyhow, in May the new members comprising Board of Accountancy was announced as follows:

JOEL L. TAN-TORRES
Chairman

GERARD B. SANVICTORES
Member

BETTY C. SIY-YAP
Member

ELISEO A. AURELLADO
Member

Three of the four are SGVians (former) and I am proud to say that I have had the chance to have met them when I was still working for the firm.

The V of SGV, Alfred M. Velayo

Triva, SGV was founded by Washington SyCip and in1947 Alfredo M. Velayo and Vicente O. Jose were taken in as partners to form SyCip, Velayo, Jose & Co. It only became SGV in 1958 when Henry Hunter Bayne & Co who was then headed by Arsenio Reyes and Ramón J. Gorres merged with Mr Sycip’s firm, thereby forming the SyCip, Gorres, Velayo and Co.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen

Project Life 2014 Cover Page

Here goes my Project Life Cover Page for 2014 (Digital).

This year I am attempting to start documenting my life using Project Life. I vow not to be bound by any rules surrounding the documentation. I will just let my experiences dictate how I document memories. I am making a fearless forecast that I will be going digital for most part if I want to succeed at the documentation. I just need to start planning ahead and think how I am going to collate the pages at the end of the year.

My # 3 for Himig Handog 2013 – Tamang Panahon

Reminiscent of an Ogie Alcasid style of music.
Written and Performed by Wynn Andrada

Darating ba ang pagkakataon
Heto na ba ang tamang panahon
Kung saan hindi magwawalay
Kung saan hindi mag-aaway
Sana naman lalo tayong tumibay

Kailan kaya tayo magiging isa
Ikaw ako wala nang iba pa
Magtiwala di ka iiwanan
Pangako pag-ibig ko’y maaasahan
Walang hanggan sa ‘ti’y darating din naman

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Kailan kaya tayo magiging isa
Ikaw ako wala nang iba pa
Magtiwala di ka iiwanan
Pangako pag-ibig ko’y maaasahan
Walang hanggan sa ‘ti’y darating din naman

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Walang hanggan … walang hanggan … walang hanggan

Darating ba ang pagkakataon
Heto na ba ang tamang panahon
Kung saan hindi magwawalay
Kung saan hindi mag-aaway
Sana naman lalo tayong tumibay

Kailan kaya tayo magiging isa
Ikaw ako wala nang iba pa
Magtiwala di ka iiwanan
Pangako pag-ibig ko’y maaasahan
Walang hanggan sa ‘ti’y darating din naman

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Kailan kaya tayo magiging isa
Ikaw ako wala nang iba pa
Magtiwala di ka iiwanan
Pangako pag-ibig ko’y maaasahan
Walang hanggan sa ‘ti’y darating din naman

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Naghihintay tamang panahon para sabihin ko
Ikaw lamang walang iba ang iibigin ko
Nangangako sa yo habang buhay ikaw lamang
Ang mamahalin ikaw walang hanggan

Walang hanggan … walang hanggan … walang hanggan

My # 2 for Himig Handog 2013 – One Day

Written by: Agatha Obar Marallos
Interpreted by: Angeline Quinto

One day I will remember
That day when you said goodbye
One day while the world is sleeping tight
One day you will see me smile

One day you will remember
That day when you left my side
One day in the silence of the night
One day I will be alright

I recall when you said you love me so
I remember you said you’ll never go

One day I will remember
A love that I’ve always known
One day you will know the reason why
You will stay forever in my heart

I recall when you said you love me so
I remember you said you’ll never go

One day you will know the reason why
You will stay forever in my heart

I recall when you said you love me so
I remember you said you’ll never go
I’ll be stronger, stronger than before
Ohhh now it’s over
Can I see your face once more

My # 1 for Himig Handog 2013 – If You Ever Change Your Mind

This is my pick for this year’s Himig Handog. Written and sang by a graduating college student from Ateno going against the big names in music writing.

I wish she gets a chance to make more original music. I would be definitely be buying her album.  Here is the lyrics to the song.

There was once a time
When I thought of no one else but you
You’d look into my eyes
And I’d see the whole world in front of me

We were perfect for each other
No one else would dare compare, no
Thought that we were steadfast
But feelings don’t last, oh no, no

But if you ever change your mind,
Don’t you dare come back to me cryin’
“I want you back again”
‘Cause though what we had was more than fine
I needed someone who would love me
More than he loved himself

You said you’d never lie
That you’d never make me cry, my dear
Did you mean every word you said
Or were you messin’ with my head all these years?

Were we perfect for each other
Or was this all just pretend, oh?
Seems it ended so fast
But feelings don’t last, oh no, no

But if you ever change your mind
Don’t you dare come back to me cryin’
“I want you back again”
‘Cause though what we had was more than fine
I needed someone who would love me
More than he loved himself
More than he loved himself
Himself, himself

But if you ever change your mind
Don’t you dare come back to me cryin’
“I want you back again”
‘Cause though what we had was more than fine
I needed someone who would love me
More than he loved himself
