Random: Tuesday Sickness


i called in sick today and did not report for work. just want to take a day off since we’re just done with a major release and i just felt like staying at home and be a bum. i accomplished lots of things and it’s only midday! i clean the kitchen, did my laundry, manicure/pedicure, clean my room, arrange my stuff then went to the clinic and gave my award-winning “best-in-sakitin” performance. aaaaahhhhhh. how i love this day…il dolce far niente…the art of doing nothing. 🙂

so i’m spending the entire day in front of the laptop, sometimes watching tv in between. but i can’t seem to find any good tv shows during this hour so just sorted to youtube-ing and listening to old songs. and how happy am i to listen to these highschool era songs, memories.

here are my top 5 kalumaan songs. may bonus kwento bawat kanta para masaya. these are mostly from the 90s to early 2000 era, so around high school to early college yang mga yan. sa era pa lang, mahuhulaan na kung anong edad na ako. hahaha! 

  1. the corrs – all the love in the world

tidbits: year 2000 ng nauso itong song na to, theme song pa ng isa sa favorite kong movie “america’s sweetheart” starring julia roberts and catherine zeta-jones. the first person that comes into my mind when this song is played is my ex-jowa nung highschool. oo, jowa ko nung highschool na binigyan ako ng casette tape ng ‘the corrs’ yung ‘in blue’ na album nila. hahaha, syet. naalala ko pa daw ba yun?!

2. bic runga – sway

tidbits: year 2000-2001 to nauso, kapanahunan ng js prom. 4th year ata ako nun, nag ma math class kami. then sinulat ng seatmate ko yung buong lyrics sa 1/2 crosswise then pinagpasa-pasahan namin. natapos ang klase na memorize ko na ang kanta. hahaha. kahit pakantahin nyo ako nito ngayon, saulado ko pa ang lyrics. 🙂

3. jocelyn enriquez –  do you miss me

tidbits: nasaan na nga ba si jocelyn enriquez? oo girl asan ka na ba, namimiss na kita. hahaha. pero namiss ko ng sobra tong kantang to. grade 6 or 1st year hs ba ako nito? basta ang naaalala ko sa kantang to, madalas nag ba brownout sa subdivision namin nuon kaya ni rerecord ko sa blank tape yung kanta na to tapos paulit-ulit-ulit ulit-ulit (haha) ko sya pinapatugtog sa radio. walang sawa kahit maubos na ang baterya ng radio namin. basta feeling ko ang cool ng kanta na to nuon. makahanap nga ng mp3 nito!

4. sixpence none the richer – kiss me

tidbits: year 1996-1997 to so highschool days. theme song to dun sa isa ko pang favorite na cheesy-hs-movie yung ‘she’s all that’ starring rachel leigh cook and freddie prinze jr. hay naku crush na crush ko nuon si freddie prinze jr sa movie na yun. naalala ko sa scene nung movie yung ugly duckling pa si rachel leigh cook tapos aattend sila ni freddie prinze jr ng prom, pag baba nya ng hagdan ang ganda ganda na niya tapos na starstruck na si guy as in inlababo. syeeeeeeet kinikilig pa din ako sa movie na yun. maidownload nga ulit!

5. hanson – mmmbop

tidbits: year 1997, highschool days pa rin. di ko alam exactly anong year ako nung highschool…freshman ata. pinasayaw kami nito in one of our school programs to welcome us as freshmen. bihira ako sumali sa school activities nuong hs especially kung may singing/dancing dahil low profile lang ako at sa academics lang ako nag e-excel…hahaha…charrrr!!! may ganun! pero since freshmen nga kami at kelangan daw namin magpakilala sa buong hs community, napasayaw ako nito. naalala ko ang lousy ng hand-body coordination ko at nagkakalat lang ata ako sa stage, dahil di ko makuha ang sideways-sideways-taas paa-pitik kamay dance step ng mmmbop!

nakakamiss talaga!!! 🙂
