We had an extremely fruitful and stimulating meeting for HARANA.PH together with the awesome partners this afternoon, and I must say, exciting times are at hand. Being the first and only professional serenade service in the industry has its perks - you get to constantly goof around with all of these creative, bizarre ideas being thrown at the table by crazy people, and no one can compare you to anyone. If all things go smoothly and as planned (I hope), you will definitely hear more about us, more people will be kilig by us and more people around the country will be feeling the love and pleasantly surprised by a simple pinoy tradition we locally call "harana", done the HARANA.PH way. Yup, the work ahead is challenging, but we love what we do, we are artists by nature, and we certainly love shocking people (seriously, some of us don't even call this WORK). I still remember our first harana , where we serenaded Jane from her husband Albert. That really started it all. I got so inspired and hyped up about it, I even sent my own wife a harana during our 3rd year anniversary. Seeing her cry out of happiness (and embarrassment hehe) made me realize that, hey wait a minute, this thing could really grow into something people are going to talk about. Hmm.. hopefully it's not because ABS-CBN artist Guji Lorenzana serenaded for her and made her think why I couldn't be as good looking as that (joke!). Then inquiries started coming in trickles, and finally, Harana.ph created its first marriage proposal for Ronald and Kimika (of course it was a "YES!"). After guesting in Umagang Kay Ganda the day before Valentine's day of this year, was the domino effect for us. From serenading at the Senate from Sen. Ralph Recto , to more marriage proposals , and doing haranas late at night , we decided to make HARANA.PH grow in a big way, and to promote world peace while we are at it. I urge everyone to check out our Facebook video page for more of our serenades. They're not all perfect, but they will be.
As we move forward to becoming a company with global clients (we would love to service our overseas Filipino workers to send something more than imported chocolates to their loved ones here; and of course, our foreign friends - Check out a recent video here of a harana from overseas -A Birthday Harana @ Gloria Jeans ) and nationwide recipients (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao! - Harana.ph went all the way to Baguio City on this video - Harana@ Cafe by the Ruins ). Sending your love will also have no time-barriers, as we can do surprises 24 by 7, but hopefully you won't make us get your grandmother out of her bed at midnight. We have ninety artists and musicians waiting to serenade your loved ones (and our family is growing rapidly!). The HARANA.PH giftshop, which we plan to launch very very soon, will allow you to send just about anything to your loved ones in the Philippines (yes, even lechon manok).
As we learn from our inevitable mistakes, make radical changes and improvements, innovate, and perfect our element of surprise, HARANA.PH will not only deliver the only service of its kind, but also the best. This year will usher in the best artists, best musicians, best talent and best "surprise" specialists, to make sure that every single event we do for our clients is a special one. We will turn HARANA.PH into something we Filipinos can be proud of. A one of its kind business, a one of its kind service, a one of its kind tradition. Truly Pinoy. We do this all for the glory of our God.
Thank you for all the support. Share the love! God bless you all.
