Top 5 Christmas 2011 Gift Suggestions
Christmas is so very much nearing. I am betting you are already planning to buy gifts as early as today. So to help you all out there who’s having a hard time choosing the right gifts for the holiday season, I have some terrific gift suggestions here.
1. For the Dads, and Young Male Adults – Jim Paredes’ ”LARO” solo album. The songs that make up the album are “OPM Rap,” “Butong Pakwan,” “Ang Ganda Mo,” “May Araw Ka Rin,” “Sinungaling,” “Feeling Guilty,” “Libog Lang Yan,” “Lumisan Na Siya,” “In My Heart,” “Basic Love,” “Sumpa,” “Live Your Own Life,” “Mangarap at Managinip” and “Palagi-lagi.”
Though there is no Danny Javier and Buboy Garovillo, it’s an all-original album made out of pure joy and fun, that is why he called it “Laro” as if just playing around.
“It’s strange to record an album without my two friends. But it is exhilarating to be 100% responsible for what came out. All the songs are original. I worked with Ernie Baladjay, APO’s arranger and friend of many years. Actually it wasn’t work. We played,” Paredes said.
This is Paredes’ first album recording after the APO Hiking Society, the longest running, most popular and respected group in the Philippines ended last May 29, 2010.
