Do you want to go mountain climbing? Is it going to be the first time? Are you excited? Perhaps a little scared thinking of so many things that could happen along the way. I feel you. I am an adventurer myself but most of the time I venture to places in my imagination. Taking my first ever mountain climbing scared the nerve out of me. Why? Because I was unprepared and just joined the group because I wanted to take my adventure in real life and not just in my dreams.

After that first experience, I told myself that my next hike should be planned and well prepared. It was not easy and anything could really happen up there. So with the help of some mountaineers and help books, I came up with this beginner’s guide to mounting climbing.

1. Be physically and mentally prepared

Climbing requires the condition of being physically fit and healthy. Make sure to consult your doctor about your plan especially if you have any medical condition. You need to exercise and increase your cardiovascular workouts. Set your mind and be determined to conquer every varied terrain and high elevations.

When my Facebook wall exploded with feeds and statuses about Justin Bieber’s performance of his newly released single What Do You Mean during the 2015 VMAs and how good the actual song was, it piqued my interest. And when a longtime friend posted through Facebook that she was fast becoming a Belieber because of Bieber’s new songs, it prompted me to check Biebs’ new music myself.

I have never been a Justin Bieber [a Belieber] fan. My song knowledge when it comes to him is limited to his Baby single which my then barely three-year-old son and nephew belted out and danced to. His music catered to teenage girls [and okay, boys] and since I am way past my teenage years, I see no point listening to songs which, I think, mostly talks about juvenile love and heartbreak. I like his life story, though — how he came to be discovered as a music artist. I see in his story a dedication of a single mother who’s proud of her son’s talent and got just that . . . the world recognizing that, indeed, her son got something she should really be proud of. The fact that Justin Bieber got discovered through Youtube just showed how powerful social media, media-sharing sites and the internet, in general, are. If I am not mistaken, his discovery led the slew of other Youtube discoveries [Greyson Chance, Karmin, Psy and the likes, everyone?], too, with the site catapulted to being a platform for showcasing talents [and, yes, being abused in that context].

The many bad news about him in the past recent years even cemented my low opinion of him. In the steps of Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus was another bratty young star who let fame get inside his head. If Justin made it to the news, it wasn’t about his music but about the latest antic he did [and though not a fan, it’s hard not to hear about them as majority of the entertainment news portals in the internet spoke about them].

So, the news about his VMAs appearance came really as a surprise. But him making grown-up music isn’t.

His transition from his kiddie pop crooning days to what he is now started two years back — in 2013. But those times were the height of all his legal troubles. Everyone else was focused on that and everything else he was doing, including on working out his music career, was scarcely noticed. His Baby single featured a Justin Bieber who can still hit high notes. This changed, however, when he hit puberty. In fact, he admitted to his changing voice and inability to hit the high notes he was able to sing without difficulty before in an interview.

I believe that Justin Bieber and his team experimented with music [check out his music compilation entitled Journals] before settling on to something that played his strengths which, obviously, wasn’t R&B. Good thing that the tide within the music world is also changing. EDM [Electronic Dance Music] is on the rise and that is what Bieber’s genre is now — EDM-influenced pop. Unlike R&B, EDM pop allows him to skim through beats without belting out. It’s a perfect fit for his breathy voice.

His new songs are quite catchy and upbeat. Aside from that, the lyrics dwell on more than just the teenage angst, love and heartbreak – themes that dominated his earlier works. And listening to some of his songs now, I find I am enjoying them and actually singing in with the tracks.

Am I already a Belieber? Nope. I just think that Biebs just found his musical home in the genre he is now. This and the growing up that his recent run-ins with trouble brought him contributed greatly to his maturity as a musician.

How about you? Is Justin Bieber’s new music making a Belieber out of you?


Being a parent is not easy. But it also comes with a lot of perks (fun too!). And this dad might just have too much fun being a parent! Snowsports are fun, but throwing giant snowballs can be so much more! Watch this video and find out why it’s gained 1.2 million views on YouTube!

Ever since I was a kid, most, if not all, pictures of the american bald eagle I have seen were always from the side view. And because pictures of it looked so good I didn’t really think about looking for pictures of it in a front view. And this might just be the reason why!

This is the American Bald Eagle we’re used to seeing:

They say it’s not easy being a mother. And it’s really not. One kid is hard enough, two can be a handful but triplets with a toddler? This supermom made it look so easy changing her 8-month old triplets and hyperactive toddler! Kudos to this mom!


A few more days and it’s Valentine’s Day! But for those who are mending a broken heart this season, don’t fret! There are actually things we can learn from getting our hearts broken.

Learn to love yourself. When you love, you have to learn to keep a little love for yourself and not give it all to the person you’re in love to. If you do, chances are you’ll end up very broken when things don’t work out and you have to go your separate ways.

We’ve all heard about wedding singers, and even ringers but have you heard the latest buzz about the wedding rapper? One woman, who was the maid of honour at her sister’s wedding, delivered a very unique way of wedding toast. It looked like a traditional wedding toast in the beginning of the video but the crowd went laughing and cheering when she started rapping! Her rhyming is contagious! If you listen closely to the lyrics, you’ll know why they couldn’t help but laugh!


A lot of Broncos fans, and probably the players as well, are still celebrating their win. Cam Newton, which was named the league’s Most Valuable Player, sadly wasn’t so invincible when the entire Denver Broncos beat him in the biggest game of all, the Super Bowl! Thumbs up to Broncos’ defense against Carolina Panthers which ended with a 24-10 score!

According to Yahoo!, “It was the Broncos’ defense, not the Peyton Manning offense that was most responsible for Denver’s points. A Miller sack and strip of Newton in the first quarter was recovered in the end zone by Jackson to give Denver a 10-0 lead and set the tone that this was a different level than Carolina had seen. The game was capped by another Miller strip of Newton that set the Broncos up on Carolina’s 4-yard line. C.J. Anderson scored a few plays later to put it out of reach. Newton was sacked six times, tossed around like rag doll.”

Here are the highlights of the game:
