I am embedding the latest or one of the latest videos (as of this date) of Vincent Bueno on YouTube. It was uploaded by suitcase101285. The title of the video, Vincent Bueno a.k.a. Suitcase – Superficialboy, implies Vincent Bueno is suitcase and was the one who uploaded said video on YouTube.

Vincent Bueno’s performances have always fascinated me. From the very first time I saw him sing and dance (on video), he has stunned me by his awesome performance. Like a touch of magic, Vince’s singing and dancing affected me positively, moved me to write, and was the very reason why I started blogging. I recall that my initial blog post was about Vincent Bueno—Vincent Bueno – More Than a Musical Superstar.

I invite you once again to watch Pinoy Pride and world-class performer, Vincent Bueno, in the video below uploaded by suitcase101285 on YouTube.

I have been working more than a hundred kilometers away from home for so long. Although I regularly visit my loved ones, there are times—and they’re quite often—when I yearn for home especially when there’s so much stress in the workplace and the pressures of life seem to drive me crazy.

The last time I went to Gapan City for a brief sojourn and to unwind, I brought my digital camera with me and took photographs of the downtown area and other places I found interesting to visit. I thought it would be useful to have pictures of my hometown in Olongapo so as to lessen the effect of homesickness once it strikes me.

Let’s take a walk…
