PRUE HALLIWEL ::: OBSERVER OF LIFE

i don't want to get to the end of my life and find that i have just lived the length of it... i want to also have lived the width of it as well... smiling when the sun rises... dreaming until the sun hides... but for now, i'm letting go... and this goodbye isn't just a new start... it confirms my submission to waiting... while searching...

worth the laugh...

i slept pretty late yesterday... ooops... mali... i crept into bed early this morning @ around 5am... hahaha... so i practically didn't get sleep yesternight... hmmm... not quite actually... yeah... i didn't get that sleep last night... but boy oh boy, i got up 5pm na this afternoon... so just makes it bawi-bawi na din... gulo noh... long for saying, hindi ako nakatulog...

had nothing to do last night but wallow in misery and torture myself if he's ever coming home... listening to my usual emote repertoire... i just found myself texting julia at 12 midnight... "kain tayo... harbor square"...

so there i was... with my ipod, listening to northern sky of nick drake... thinking of my angel... pondering on where i am now in the world... imagining what my life could have been if only and what if... and since i got to harbor square ahead of julia, i had time for myself... to obviously emote and allow the night to just engulf me...

when julia finally arrived, we transferred to remedios circle... and ate at max's... then proceeded to starbucks... haaaaaay... sarap tumanga and watch people passing by... making 'pintas' on everyone just so you'd feel good about yourself... oh and yes, speaking of... there was this lady who's bigger than i am... much bigger... and she literally didn't have a neck... i mean, her cheeks reached to her shoulders... ang bad noh... sorry na... let me just this once... once? hello! pintasero ka tlga...

anyway... i actually went to manila feeling a little low... but the night ended with us laughing like crazy... i remembered kingdaddyrich's entry on mga 'namamalimos'... each type of namamalimos having their own gimik and technique just so you'd offer a penny... last night, i discovered a new kind... hehehe!

at first i couldn't understand what she was singing... yes... she sings in exchange for the few pennies... it wasn't a christmas carol... it was better than that... do you know 'high school' of sharon cuneta... the beggar's own version of the lyrics is a blast... here goes...

high school na... pinag-college pa...
pinagpokpok lang pala...
high school na... pinag-college pa...
pinagpokpok lang pala...

(chorus)

ang saya ng hostess...
laging naka-burlesk...
bukas may sakit na siya...
ang saya ng hostess...
laging naka-burlesk...
bukas may sakit na siya...

hahaha... able to follow? here are the original lines so you'd have reference for the melody...

High school life, oh my high school life,
Ev'ry memory kay ganda.
High school days, oh my high school days
Are exciting kay saya.

(chorus)

Ang saya ng high school,
Senior years in my school
Di na mapapantayan.
T'yak ganyan ang buhay na sadyang makulay
Alaala kailan man.

mind you, i don't really give alms... but i made an exception on this one... i gave her i think 20pesos worth of coins... after all, she did really make me and julia laugh... thanks girl...
