Post-Holiday Thoughts: Changes in Change

It’s December 26, the day after Xmas.

Oh real quick here are the special occasions today, Dec 26:

“National Thank You Note Day” – The presents have been unwrapped and put away. Now it’s time to write those thank you notes.

“National Whiner’s Day” – A day dedicated to whiners, especially those who return Christmas gifts and need lots of attention


Anyway, on the show today we talked about the C word, yes, I know it’s still taboo, but we had to bring it up. Today we talked about CHANGE.

See my friends and I usually spend the holiday season reflecting on changes we saw in ourselves and changes we want to see. Of course. this all sounds professional and eloquent here, but pretty much we were just reminiscing on the year that was over some drinks and thought it would be great to ask our listeners about this.

So, it’s Post-holiday reflection time: This year, what changes have you seen in yourself? Also, what changes do you want to see for next year?

Here are some of the responses we got:

Vhan Gil Sayre Serneo: I seen myself mature this year not only mentally but also physically…. Next year I want to see myself in a stable job and ready to go abroad. I really need to help my family and be rich….

Inciong Jenny: more mature… more patience… And next year wish to travel and enjoy life more…

Val Patrick Fabregas: This year I did three jobs at the same time – two part-time college teaching while having a full-time work at a call center as a technical trainer. But I already ended my part-time work last October. Im seeing to march this March 2012, finishing my Masteral Studies. Pls greet my wife, Gie & my daughter Precious. More power to the WakeUp Show & Happy Holidays DJ Tracy/ DJ Vince

Riyao Komni: Good Morning! BECHEEz!!!
for the topic: This year I become selfish and always
inside my room alone,, but probably next year i’ll be
more spontaneous and out of the box. 😀
I just want to say hi to my colleagues Dom, Celine and Rosalie..
please play “What the hell” by avril lavigne.. thanks and more power!! 😀

Jomar Ambalan: This year i become more productive, workacholic and look older so next year i just wanna relax and celebrate life. And one more thing this year i become listener of mellow 94.7:). Hi vince and Tracy. I love you guys. Hi to my friends emcee, marlon and cams hehe i hope you’re listening.

Wilson Chan: Good Morning Beeeee CheeeZz Vince and Tracy! It was great to finally meet my famous nephew! Next mission is to meet Tracy! Hahaha! Merry Christmas man! For next year I will be more aggressive in pursuing my work and career and stop procrastinating! Please greet my lovely wife Tala a good morning… Thanks!


I’m  not really sure is planning to stop procrastinating next year is really the way to start that new resolution…. lol.

For me, I’m still figuring out whether or not it’s time for me to head back to the US. I’m still loving my job but just not sure if the pay here in the Philippines is really the best for starting a retirement fund. Again, need to sacrifice the $$$ for the fun right now, and I’m having lots of fun being on air and also doing the blogging thing. So let’s give myself one more year here to see what comes out of this.

But yeah, what changes did you see in yourself or what do you want to see next year?

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” ~ Mahatma Gandhi.

What would you get yourself this Xmas?

The holiday season, especially Xmas, seems to be all about giving gifts to everyone. Stressing out about finding the right gift for your special someone, for your mom, dad, siblings, friends, cousins, kids, bosses, co-workers and so much more! Ahhhhhh just thinking about it is stressing me out.

On the other hand, have you ever thought that it might be the perfect time to also reward YOURSELF with a gift? I mean why not? I’m sure you’ve been working hard all year long! You’ve probably overcome a lot of struggles and hardships! So why not reward yourself with a gift this Xmas as well!

So today on my radio program, The Wake Up Show, on Mellow 94.7, we asked our listeners: “What do you want to get for yourself this Xmas? What gift do you want to treat yourself to and why?”



Here are some of my favorite responses we got from our different media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, our textline and more:

Pau Milton: Boyfriend hahaha LOL.. Please say hi to Ariane Abdala,Camiw Caleda & Trinie Tuazon

Catherine Sadao: To have a trip to canada w/ my family.To relax! and a Boyfriend haha!

Mia Guerzon Rivera!

Here’s her entry:

Good day everyone! This is me and my Mom. This photo was taken 3 years ago. I’ll tell you a story behind this photo. It was a Saturday morning, and I was planning to surprise her about something. This picture was taken an hour after we woke up. Then I gave her a little something. I made up some tickets, like passes for a concert, from truly yours, also starring truly yours (hehe), for a lunch, a free massage, a free movie ticket, and a dinner. And I really, really, really, had a hard time saving money for that, ’cause I’m just a student. LOL. :)) And I really want to give her something that would surprise her, ’cause her Birthday’s coming, and I still don’t have enough money to have a surprise for her happen. And then this treat came up. So, I’m hoping against hope that I get to win this. Her birthday’s 0n the 17th. It’s been years since we’ve bonded like crazy; she’s got lots and lots of work to do, so a day off would be perfect. :))
When I was younger, I often ask my Mom how come she’s alone every Valentine’s day if the season was for couples. I always wonder, that’s why one day, she gave me the answer that I’ve been dying to hear.
“Dear, Valentine’s day isn’t just about couples, or those who are in a relationship.. It’s about giving love..” She said..
Pretty simple, isn’t it? But meaningful, really.
My mom is my best friend. She’s different from the other mothers I’ve known. She’s cool, and I can talk to her about everything.. She’s my protector. I remember one time when I have been into trouble.. She asked me if I wanted her to fight for me.. And because of that, I’ve loved her even more..
This Valentine’s day, I want to thank her for all the sacrifices she’d done for me and my brother.. She’d taken full responsibility for raising us alone.. She’d worked non-stop for us to live our daily lives.. Yet, she still remained to be a model mom..
Mom, Happy Birthday.. Happy Valentine’s too.. I’ll always remember what you’ve taught me. Thank you for having me and my brother.. Thank you for giving us this life.. I’m so lucky to have you as my mom.. You’re my number one.. Joining this contest is just a little thing to do, compared to all the thing s that you’ve done just to raise us up.. And don’t ever think that you’re alone.. You are never.. We, your children, are always here for you, no matter what..


Since there were so many good entries, we decided to give away some consolation prizes! A SPAradise Couple’s Massage package goes to each of the following winners below.

For the consolation prizes, the picture was worth 50% and the comment another 50%.

This is me with my Kulet, we call each other kulet and we’ve been together for 6 yrs. and 11 months. I think we deserve this V-day treat ‘coz we’re so stressed nowadays and having misunderstandings because we don’t have enough time for each other since we’re both graduating this coming march. This V-day treat would mean a lot to us, rekindle the old flare we had before. (p.s we’re both avid fans of mellow! we always listen to The Wake Up Show every morning on the way to school!) =)

Hey! Hey! My Valentines entry is for me and my husband. We hope to enjoy your awesome Valentine Treat. Technically, we’ve been together for almost 8 years now. “Technically”. because we’ve been bf/gf since 2003 and he broke it off when we were 3.5 years (let’s just say, he wanted to see if his charm still works with other “fish” in the ocean…;-) ). After his journey, he still realized that his only “bliss” was with me, so he woed his way back and we decided to give it another spin…so true, love is sweeter the 2nd time around and everything went smoothly and as if nothing happened. We decided to tie the knot year 2009 and were given the most wonderful gift, who will turn 7 months the day before this Valentine’s Day…our own little angel. Having a precious addition to our family is priceless, all the sleepless nights and playtime with our baby was all worth it when you see your baby smile back and giggles with you. It would be equally splendid if we would be able to spend this coming valentine’s day together and appreciate each other’s company and rekindle the ‘old times’ like bf/gf with Mellow947 Valentine Treat. Having a day of rest from our very busy role – parenthood. Thank you and more power to your show!

Hi Vince and Tracy! Okay, so this is the first time i’ll ever join any competition like this, and im so excited!! HAHA! Plus i always listen to you guys so its more exciting ♥
Anyway, I introduce to you my parents, and i am hoping to win the Valentines Day treat for them! For me, they truly deserve this because of all the things they do for us siblings. This is just one way to show how thankful we are for taking good care of us, for always being there and being the best parents ever. They need to relax and spend some time with each other!! They’ve been so busy with work and helping my siblings in school and i think this treat is just PERFECT for them 🙂
I know they’ll appreciate this and I just want to make them happy 🙂 thanks for giving us this opportunity! God bless you guys 🙂

aside from valentines day… my gf and i also celebrating the most special date of us being lovers – our anniversary:) of course… it doesn’t matter to us where or how much would be the cost of our date, what matter is that she’s with me and the love we built 7 years ago…keeping stronger and better – completes me indeed!
I’m happy because I have her. I know flowers and chocolates and even just a word couldn’t explain how thankful I am. Each day, my heart races giving me the reason to live. Our time together is so special because it’s filled with love. And If there’s one thing that I’ve done best in my life, it would be the day I started loving her. She’s a lover and friend to me. It feels like a comfortable refuge on her shoulders. She allows me to be myself. I love hier today and I will love her until my last breath.
enough reasons to surprise her with a valentines treat c/o of
The Wake Up Show! she’s a big fan to say! crossed fingers!
