Celebrating My Birthday with Julia Montes!

  
Julia Montes and I were celebrating our birthdays today! Yes, Julia and I have the same birthday - March 19!

Julia or Mara Schnittka in real life and me Aki or Rocky Batara in real life also share commonalities in life. We both faced different challenges before and we successfully surpassed them! Right now, both of us were striving for success, for a better career!

Julia rose in fame after portraying the character of Clara in the hit TV series remake of the mother of all teleseryes, "Mara Clara." Her character in the said series is her role I love the most!

While Julia is celebrating her 18TH birthday today, I'm also celebrating my 20's now! But aside from yours truly and Julia, do you know that today is also the same day when a popular saint was born?! Yes, he is no other than the father of Jesus Christ, the patron of workers - Saint Joseph!


Well, that's why many persons born on March 19 were named as Joseph. Did you know that my mom is supposed to name me as Joseph instead of Rocky?! That was a long story to tell why I grabbed my name as Rocky. Maybe I can share it why on my next succeeding posts!  

In my upcoming posts, I'll share with you more videos of the stars and celebrities who greeted my special day!

Julia, Rocky, Saint Joseph, and all the Josephs out there who are celebrating their birthdays today, let this simple message inspire you:

Happy Birthday!

Today, March 15, 2013 is the 5TH birthday of the one and only, the star of all the blogs, Bits of Rocks! 

It was 2008 the same date when this blog started. My self-titled poem called "Rocky" which I wrote in College and was published in our official Student Publication's literary folio served as my very first post here in this blog site. Well, you may check it out here in this link: Rocky

Started with a plain all black background with green font in the main title and white text font in the post body, this blog was my very first blog in the blogger's blogspot platform. It became the "Mother of All My Blogs" as from this blog emerged my other blogs with the different niche like Rhythm of the Rock, The Rock's Literary Collection, TECHkyrocky, and TV Series Craze.   

Bits of Rocks in 2009 changed name to The Rock Land then to Rock Republic in 2012 but only for a week until it return back to Bits of Rocks the same year.  This is my personal blog site which tells everything you want to know about me as well as cool and humor posts with bits of lifestyle and entertainment. Until stars and different personalities join the Bits' bandwagon!  


I'm so proud that my blog, my very first blog, this blog is standing strong and still! Being in the blogging community for 5 solid years now is really a great achievement! And I'm glad that this site even evolves!

As part of my month-long 5TH Blog Anniversary this month of March, I will share with you more exciting facts and trivia about this blog! For now, join me in greeting it:

Happy 5TH Blog Anniversary Bits of Rocks!


It's really another milestone in my part. More years to come and best wishes Bits of Rocks...!!! (RCB)
