In a few weeks’ time, we will be witnessing our very own Gazini Ganados compete in the much awaited Miss Universe 2019. Following the footsteps of her predecessor Catriona Gray who brought home the title, Gazini has very high heels to fill. With a unique advocacy to bring to the stage—it’s safe to say that we’ve got a fighting chance in making a back-to-back Miss Universe win happen.

Gazini’s advocacy, elderly care, is a simple yet profound cause that hits home to many—especially since many of us in the Philippines grew up under the care and guidance of our lolos and lolas. Just as we’ve witnessed in the previous years, such a heartfelt movement deserves an equally heartfelt anthem to go with it. That’s where Miko Manguba, aka JMKO in the music scene, comes in. With his help, “Timeless,” Gazini’s official advocacy song, was brought to life.

Already on his final year in Music Production at De La Salle - College of St. Benilde, JMKO did most of the technical work for the song. From songwriting, production, musical arrangement, and even vocals, he put the track together from scratch. “‘Timeless’emphasizes the need to shower the elderly with unconditional and long-lasting affection, especially our own grandparents. It reminds us to devote more appreciation and time to individuals who’ve gone past their prime,” says JMKO in a recent Facebook post.

While still in music school, this isn’t the first time JMKO conveyed his penchant for music. He is one of Star Music’s newest addition to their roster of talents, and as writing, he has released two singles and has several covers with over a thousand likes each on Facebook.

Great job, Miko! We’re definitely looking forward to hearing this as Gazini walks on stage!

“Timeless” is now available for streaming on Spotify. You can also watch the advocacy video here:

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
