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

Father still looking for Hyundai Santa Fe driver who shot his daughter after road altercation


From InterAksyon.com

The father of a child who was allegedly shot during a road altercation is still looking for the unidentified motorist whom he claimed seriously wounded his daughter.

In a phone interview with InterAksyon.com, the father, who refused to be identified, said he was driving his two daughters to school, with his wife when a Hyundai Santa Fe approached, its headlights blindingly bright.

On the early morning of Friday last week, the father's vehicle and the Hyundai came close to one another along M.H. del Pilar St., Barangay Bungad in Quezon City.

The father lowered his window to speak with the other driver in "a nice way," he told InterAksyon.com.Â

He said he could not remember what the motorist looked like, even though the latter rolled down his heavily tinted window slightly during the altercation.

“Brod, pwede mo bang ibaba ‘yung ilaw (Friend, can you lower your light)?” he had said. The driver’s reply, said the father, was, “Eh, ano ngayon (So what)?” “Yabang mo naman (You are arrogant),” the father had replied.Â

He then moved his car forward to give way to the motorist.

When Hyundai Santa Fe had passed, the motorist shouted, “Yabang mo rin (You’re arrogant, too)!” according to the father.

When they heard three shots, his wife immediately urged him to drive on, scared that more shots would be fired, the father said.

Moments later, they heard his youngest daughter say “Aray (Ouch).” The elder daughter then said, “Mama, may dugo, may dugo (Mama, there’s blood, there's blood).”Â

They sped towards a hospital, which the father declined to name.

His wife was praying and hugging their youngest daughter the entire time, he said. Upon arriving at the emergency room, they found that the child had a wound in her right thigh. A bullet had also pierced her back. She was immediately operated on, said the father.Â

Meanwhile, he had gone to file a report to the police, which is currently investigating the matter. But there are no updates yet, he said.

Three bullets were recovered, as well as a "shell case," he said. The child is recovering and is now able to stand up all by herself.Â

But his youngest daughter as well as all members of his family still need attention given the trauma left by the incident, the father said.Â

The incident was first reported on Facebook, when concerned citizens began sharing a post supposedly created by the father's friend.
