The Baylor University Men's Choir flying on Emirates Airlines gave an impromptu performance of "Da Coconut Nut" composed by Filipino musician Ryan Cayabyab on their flight home from Kenya.

Singing and dancing, the 75-member of the Baylor University Men's Choir performed Ryan Cayabyab's song "Da Coconut Nut" to the delight of the passengers and crew.

"Da Coconut Nut" was popularized by Ryan Cayabyab's group Smokey Mountain back in the 1990's. The choral arrangement of the song has become popular and performed by choirs around the world. The video posted by Emirates on Facebook has been viewed over 2.5 million times.



It's a really great performance and I checked out their actual performance of "Da Coconut Nut" on Youtube. It's not very clear but it's great nonetheless.






If you're curious, here is the original version of the song "Da Coconut Nut" by Smokey Mountain

Pwedeng Nakawin Fund

From Normando Gonzales' Facebook Page


Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago: Don’t call it PDAF. Call it PNF. The “Pwedeng Nakawin Fund.”

“If I die, it will not be because of my blood pressure but because of my enemies. Biro mo sa diyaryo, 5 senator ang kasangkot, persons of interest, sa isang P10 billion scam. Billion, hindi million, B as in baboy talaga,”

Saying her colleagues were fooling the people, Santiago called on all 5 to take a leave of absence “not as an admission of guilt but as a courtesy to the Filipino public so the process can proceed unhampered.”

“Senators are extremely powerful, both with their money and with their influence and contacts in government so we cannot have them investigated by the DOJ because a Cabinet member Leila de Lima, has not even been confirmed by the Commission on Appointments. On that issue, she will be vulnerable,” Santiago told reporters.

Santiago called on the 5 senators to speak the truth, saying many Filipinos have a hard time making ends meet while they are supposedly pocketing public funds.

“Naghahanapbuhay ang ibang tao, umulan, uminit, lalabas ka. Pag-uwi mo, dadaan ka pa sa battlezone, the classic problem in Metro Manila (traffic). Nakikipag-away ka. Kung ikaw naman housewife, mamalengke ka, halos lahat ng bilihin tumataas, wala kang magagawa. What do you have to say about this, niloloko tayo ng mga ito ah!”

(Other people are working hard, rain or shine, they go out. When they come home, they pass the battlezone, the classic problem that is traffic in Metro Manila. They even engage in fights. The poor housewife buys products whose prices are always rising. Now what do you have to say about this, they are fooling us!)
She added, “I wanted to nuke the entire Senate building. That banner story is supported by affidavit, statements under oath.

There is prima facie evidence against the senators. Prima facie means on the face. Mukha pa lang, makapal na.” (They have the gall to do this.)

Santiago said she prefers that the 5 senators resign out of delicadeza, but knowing they will not do that, she urged them to take a leave of absence instead.
