Uso Pa Ba Ang Harana?

Berlin-based Bikolano Singer Back in Naga for Benefit Show
Sheila M. Basbas

World-class performer Jonathan De La Paz Zaens, who has performed in Europe, the US and the Philippines, is in Naga for a benefit concert dubbed "Uso pa ba ang harana: Concierto para sa Museo".

Slated on August 02, 2014, 7:00 pm at the Big Hall of the Basilica Minore in Balatas, Naga City, the show will feature timeless music and heart-warming poetry from award-winning Bicolano writer H. Francisco "Frank" Peñones. Zaens promises an entertaining night with a repertoire that includes classical music, and jukebox hits sang in a distinctive operatic style.

A former member of the Philippine Madrigal Singers, Jonathan has been making waves in opera circles abroad and is one of the most sought-after classical singers in Germany. He has also been called the Piolo Pascual of classical music for his good looks and charismatic presence.

Presently based in Berlin, Jonathan was born in Naga City to Manuel Zaens and Amelita de la Paz.  He is a graduate of the Naga Parochial School and the Philippine High School for the Arts, and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Voice, cum laude, at the University of the Philippines under Prof. Andrea O. Veneracion.  He earned his Master's degree in Voice from the Academy of Arts in Berlin, Germany under Prof. Dr. Herbert Brauer.

Engagements have brought him to the Prague State Opera and Prague Estates Theater where he sang the Mozart roles of Leporello from Don Giovanni and Guglielmo from Cosi fan tutte. Other guest appearances include: Dulcamara from Donizetti's L'Elisir d'amore and Alidoro from Hasse's La Sorella Amante at the Neukoeliner Opera Berlin. The Abbot from Britten's Curfew River at the New Opera Stage Berlin and King Xerxes from J.C. Bach's Temistocle at the Berlin Chamber Opera.

He has recently ventured into contemporary opera, singing for the Berlin Festival 2002, the roles of Malaspina from S. Sciarrino's Die Toedliche Blume and Luzifer in K. Stockhausen's Michael's Jugend aus Donnerstag aus Licht. For the Salzburg Festival 2003, he sang the baritone part in the world premier of Stockhausen's Duefte-Zeichen.

The Berlin based Bass-baritone is also a much sought interpreter of Oratorio (sacred) Music, performing regularly the bass solo parts in: J.S. Bach's St. John and St. Matthew Passion, the Christmas Oratorio, the b-minor Mass and his cantatas; Mendelssohn's Elijah and Paulus; Handel's Messiah; Hyden's Creation; Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle; Saint-Saens' Oratorio de Noel; Dvorak's Stabat mater and the Requiem settings of Brahms, Mozart, Faure and Verdi.

Jonathan is a prize winner of the 7th Sylvia Gesxty International Coloratura Voice Competition and a Finalist of the 13th Jonathan Bach International Competition.  He has also released a CD album entitled "Kundiman: Philippine Art Songs", with musical arrangement by Ryan Cayabyab, and piano accompaniment by Abelardo Galang II.

Of Jonathan, Pablo Tariman of the Philippine Daily Inquirer said, “There are singers and singers, but only a few have a gift for interpretation that goes beyond what the text and music signify.”

Proceeds from the concert will go to the on-going construction of Our Lady of Penafrancia Museum and for the benefit of Camerata Kultura Scholars, a group of young singers.

DIBA and Camerata Cultura would like to thank the following for their support: PAGCOR, San Miguel Beer, Bimbo Construction, Bigg's Diner, Avenue Plaza Hotel, Cafe Plazuela, Red Platter, Bicol Mail, GoldPrint, Bob Marlin, Zonta Club of Naga & Camarines Sur, Max's Restaurant, O+ USA, Mr.& Mrs. Nixon Cu.

It's been months that we have been seeing these bottles online from our neighboring countries and it has now landed in the hands of Filipinos and also to us Bicolanos. The bottles and cans with names are pre-selected, you're lucky if you have yours in this batch of deliveries. Even my very common name did not appear in this set. I hope they also bring here in Naga the stations wherein we can immortalize our names on the bottles/cans of Coke for keepsake.

Bratanella Cupcake

Being a frustrated baker, the next option that I can be at the moment is to love cakes and pastries. More often than not I have to do extra errands for myself just to satisfy my sweet tooth. I had a special weekend last Saturday all because of a special box. 

Say I LOVE YOU to your special someone and paint oh-so-good memories with them over these flavors: Red Velvet, Carrot and BanaChoco. Comes in 6 pieces in a box with 3 flavors. For order/s or reservation vibe 09176550132 **

The special box with cupcakes came in reds, Red Velvet (Brat's Best Seller) to be specific making me more ecstatic because red is my favorite color. 

From Php 420 to 570 you can choose from a lot of varieties of flavors and designs that can surely delight you or your loved ones. Designs can also be personalized according to your preference and occasion. Cupcakes can be topped with frosting, fondant or also with fillings. These cupcakes will surely add color and sweetness to your events or just make your ordinary day extra special. 

The cupcakes are not only visually appealing but most importantly they taste good. Personally I like pastries that are not too sweet and Bratanella Cupcakes are for the win in that aspect. This can actually mean another piece of cupcake in just one sitting.  BUT, don't get me wrong, when I say not too sweet it may already mean too sweet for others that's because I have "high tolerance for sugar". Honestly, hindi sya "nakakaumay", my mom for example do not eat too much cupcakes or even other kinds sweets, but this time, she ate two cupcakes. Now that's impressive.


Bratanella Cupcake is an Online Cupcake Shop owned / managed by Angelica Peña , 4th year Student of Ateneo de Naga University. Since 2012, Bratanella Cupcake has been providing low-cost high-quality home-made pastry products with the best possible service around Naga City. Though majority of their customers are students, they also attend to young professionals and cater during special events such as weddings, proposals, birthday celebrations and many more.  

Not only do they make high-quality cupcakes but they also do charity work named “Brat on a mission”. Through this, they are able to help our brothers and sisters who are disabled, homeless and less fortunate through medical missions and also giving away their finest pastries for free. 

The varieties of Brat's cupcakes are personally “handpicked” so that they could meet the wants and needs of their customers and to provide them with a uniquely exquisite experience from their pastries at the same rtime showcasing the richness of the Bikolano Culture. 

Ms. Alec (the owner) is obviously passionate in her hobby-turned-business. She is one good example of today's youth who nurtured her talent not only for income but also for  the society as a whole. Her "Brat on a mission" is really something to be admired of because not all kids get to enjoy special cupcakes. There's a saying that you can actually tell if the baker baked the pastry out of happiness and Bratanella Cupcakes are honest to goodness happy cupcakes based on my experience. Thank you Alec and Kevin for sharing this lovely and yummy goodies to nagacitydeck.com. More blessings for Bratanelle Cupcake!

So there, even if you are not here in Naga and you need a gift for someone, order your cupcakes at Bratanella Cupcake online cupcake shop and they will deliver it to your loved ones. Your special days and not so ordinary days will be extra sweet and fun because of Brat's cupcakes.
