Holy Week typhoon ('Chedeng') is coming to PH

A typhoon is coming to the Philippines this Holy Week.

PAGASA warns that a rainy Holy Week is expected in the country once Typhoon Maysak enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday. The typhoon will be locally named as Bagyong "CHEDENG"

In its weather bulletin issued at 11 this Holy Monday, March 30, 2015, (and also as shown in the satellite image above), "MAYSAK" was estimated 2,240 km east of Mindanao (8.6˚N, 146.7˚E), with maximum sustained winds of 140 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 170 kph.

By Holy Wednesday, April 1, which is also April Fools' Day and definitely PAGASA is not gonna fool us as they expect the Typhoon Maysak to enter PAR on this day and will be named Chedeng.

It's gonna be a rainy wet Holy Week, and the Bicol Region once again may be affected the most. Oh no, hope it's not gonna be rainy during our "Alay Lakad" from Naga City to Calabanga, Camarines Sur on Maundy
Thursday, April 2.

Zayn Malik quits One Direction (for Perrie Edwards!)

Zayn Malik leaves One Direction reportedly for Perrie Edwards - that's one heartbreaking news about Zayn Malik flooding both my Facebook and Twitter timelines the moment I woke up this morning.

March 25, 2015 could be the saddest day for every true Directioner out there, the day Zayn Malik officially left One Direction.

via Zayn Malik's Twitter

About 8 hours ago as I blog this, an official announcement about Zayn Malik leaving One Direction has been posted in the band's official Facebook Page, and the reason cited there was that Zayn wants to relax and have some private time away from the spotlight. Now I understand why fans are attacking Zayn's fiancée Perrie Edwards now.

The statement says:

"After five incredible years Zayn Malik has decided to leave One Direction. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year.

Zayn says: "My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world."

One Direction say: "We're really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future. The past five years have been beyond amazing, we've gone through so much together, so we will always be friends. The four of us will now continue. We're looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour."

Simon Cowell says: "I would like to say thank you to Zayn for everything he has done for One Direction. Since I first met Zayn in 2010, I have grown very, very fond - and immensely proud - of him. I have seen him grow in confidence and I am truly sorry to see him leave. As for One Direction, fans can rest assured that Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis are hugely excited about the future of the band."

While that basically is just a confirmation of a week-old rumor, it's enough to break the hearts of One Direction fans, most especially those who have been with them for almost 5 years now, since they were formed as a group in the X Factor UK Season 7. Left to continue their music were Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, but of course, One Direction will never be the same now that it no longer has Zayn Malik, who I think the most good-looking members of the group, and someone who can belt out the perfect high notes.

Anyway, this news about Zayn Malik leaving One Direction is not that surprising to us here in the Philippines, especially after he no longer took part in the Manila tour and after seeing the picture of
the 4 wherein Liam Payne was covering Zayn Malik's face. (credit to Ivory Music)

It looked kinda "rude", but in a way, it was a bold statement, a hint that Zayn is no longer part of the group.

Now there are questions I'm leaving to you: Will this UK boy band still continue to enjoy immense popularity around the world now that Zayn Malik has left? Should he be replaced? - Mykiru.ph
