My 5 Favorite Pop Music Bands Of All Time

By: emelieempire on Friday, October 28, 2016 | 0

What is the first thing you will think if you are alone in a very quite place just like in your house or in the office? I sense "food" is the answer (haha). Yeah I agree with that but aside from that, if you are a young-blood like me, I will certainly think for cool musics to soothe my brain cells and inner being! You probably are also a music addict - instrumental, metal, pop etc. Yes? No? Maybe? 

Anyways, I will share to you my five favorite pop music bands of all time. You can download their albums if you want or you may buy their songs if you have extra amount in your bank account. 
And by the way, I may not have the golden voice that they have, but I do know most lyrics of their albums (shoulder-shrugged) so I guess that's one point credited in there, Lol.

Take note that the musics of these five bands have general appeal to teenagers (as well as those teenagers at heart like the one typing this haha). A bland watered-down version of rock'n'roll with more rhythm and harmony and an emphasis on romantic love. No wonder I like these haha!

1. One Direction - an English-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik.

2. Little Mix - a British girl group formed in 2011 during the eighth series of the UK version of The X Factor. They are the first and, so far, only group to win the competition. The members are Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

3. 5 Seconds of Summer - an Australian rock band from Sydney composed of Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin . The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists. The group have been referred to as a pop punk band in the media.

4. The Vamps - a British pop rock band consisting of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans. They first gained fame in late 2012 with cover songs uploaded to YouTube, leading to comparisons with One Direction and being labeled as a boy band.

5. My Chemical Romance - (often abbreviated as MCR) was an American rock band from New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. The band's best-known lineup consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Lero, bassist Mikey Way and drummer Bob Bryar. 

Seriously guys, can I take you all to my cribb?! Let's party with our hearts out and nevermind the neighbors. Please!

Summer Outing in Pangan-an andAbalone Beach Resorts

By: emelieempire on Sunday, October 16, 2016 | 0

Passerelles Numeriques Philippines pioneer Batch2012 of college scholars celebrated its seventh anniversary in Pangan-an Island, Lapu-lapu City, Cebu Philippines.

Everyone was very excited to finally be together again after all the hectic schedules brought by the professional life in the corporate world. Also, one of our abroad classmates, Catherine, arrived in Cebu so everybody was happy not to mention the chocolates pasalubong she brought for us :) 

The summer outing happened last May21-22, 2016 in 2 beach resorts in the mentioned place : Pangan-an Beach Resort and Abalone Beach ResortThe said event has the official hashtags #CSNA201 #GoingStrongAt7

Day1 (May 21, 2016) Pangan-an Beach Resort:

A) 7am - Departure from Talamban Cebu City. Rode jeepneys going to Jolibee Highway > Parkmall > Mercado Mactan > Mactan pier going to Pangan-an island. Fare was around 50 pesos all in all.

Arrived at the pier! 

Had fun, obviously!
B) 9am - We rode a small boat (also known as "sakayan") going to our destination. Fare was 45 pesos.

The more passengers, the more fun, the better :)

C) 9:30am onwards - Arrived at Pangan-an Beach Resort. Arranged our baggage in our rented house. Toured the place. Cooked Lunch. Had fun and lots of jokes.

D) 1:00pm - Personal time. Some of my friends slept and some went swimming. Bonfire and burnt marsmallows. Shots

Day2 (May 22, 2016) in Abalone Beach Resort:
This resort was a hidden treasure (well for me). Its area was covered with thick trees and plants situating few meters to the shore. At first, I found it weird since the main gate has "No Trespassing" sign. The explanation was, it's a privately owned resort and was not yet commercialized or known to the public. Entrance fee was 80 pesos. Cottage fee was 200 pesos.

Romantic Whispers about being “Single”

By: emelieempire on Sunday, October 16, 2016 | 3

Are you single? Are you longing for that special someone to come into your life? We’ll you are not alone; a lot of people on Earth are singles too. Here I will show you the confessions of single people about their romantic desires. Whisper...

1. I wish I could send really cute texts to my girlfriend/boyfriend but I am single.
2. Even though I am single, I sleep on one side of my bed, in hopes that someday I get to share it to someone special.
3. Even though I am single, I like to listen to love songs and think “one day.”
4. I have ridiculously high expectations for relationships. I want romance. I want the random road trips, kissing in the rain, pebble thrown at my window kind of love. This is why I’m single.
5. I buy men’s cologne and men’s hoodies to sleep in because it comforts me, although I am single.
6. Even though I am single and never had a boyfriend, I know how kissing and cuddling would feel like because I think about this in my head. It feels so real.
7. I can’t sleep I wish I had a girlfriend who could sing me to sleep. But I am single.
8. I’m singe and happy, but sometimes I wish I had someone to hold me and be my rock.
9. I fantasize about meeting a man at the grocery store, him coming up to me and asking if Im single. I tell him yes, and I live happily after.
10. Every time I walk through the door when I come home I always call out “Honey, Im home” … even though I’m single and I live alone.
11. Even though I am single, I already know how I am going to propose to my future wife.
12. I bet trying to get pregnant is a really incredible experience. Im single, but I dream of the day I have a man and we want to make a family. It’s what keeps me going.

Fixed: Flickering Lenovo Screen

By: emelieempire on Saturday, October 15, 2016 | 0

I had this really annoying issue with my laptop - the monitor of my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro kept on flickering and it really bothered me. At first I just ignored it because I thought it would just disappear. Then, I somehow started to get used to it. 
But then, there’s this time when I was having the moment of my life feeling the love of Noah and Allie in The Notebook movie (I honestly watched it thrice already) or the funny-giggly story of Adam and Emma in the No Strings Attached film (watched it over 4 times), and this flickering thingy really sort of pissed me off.

I noticed that this issue started after I upgraded its operating system from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and fully updated the system and device drivers to the latest version. I have already asked uncle Google about it several times. Well, it told me that I’m not the only who suffered from it because there were also other folks that’s facing the same culprit. It also offered me really lots of solutions; the worst was to send this back to manufacturer or let the Lenovo company know about it then ask for advice. That were pretty clever advices I must say but nah, I just wanted my problem be gone in just a snap. I occasionally wondered if was there an issue with the hardware itself? Should I just let a technician see its condition or consider buying a new one? I came up with different solutions in order to fix it, but only the following helped me:

Disable Panel Self-Refresh:
1. Open Intel HD Graphics Control Panel.
2. Choose Power > On Battery > check "Disable" under Panel Self-Refresh.
3. Click Apply. Then confirm by clicking Yes.

Set Up Refresh Rate from 60p Hz to 48p HZ:
1. Open Intel HD Graphics Control Panel.
2. Choose Display > General Settings > check "48p" under Refresh Rate.
3. Click Apply. 
Your welcome!
