Here's To Never Growing Up


Last night I was busy strolling around the city/downtown Batangas and looking for something to inspire me in this holiday season. The tiangge in the Plaza Mabini is still up. The "robotic show" in the city hall is still on-going. The city is still up in the still of the night. So many people were passing by and just looking and some were buying some items on the street.

And I felt my stomach was craving for those food at the tiangge. I had my siomai and buko juice. And then I had seen flock of people gathering around at the front of the Basilica. And I had seen bibingka and puto bumbong and salabat. And my stomach cannot resist but buy those bibingka especially in those cold nights. And the vendor offered a free salabat. Grateful indeed! The perfect combination! with so much margarine I cannot help but ate it at once!

And I bought a pirated CD of the hottest and latest R&B music which included songs from Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and others. And then it had this track by Avril Lavigne. That blond girl from the US with her rocking voice and timeless charm and music genre that transcended at least two generations. And the title of this post was from her popular song. I first heard it a month ago when we had a dinner party for my niece Tintin. Actually she sang it in a karaoke and I was struck by the lyrics which included a phrase "radiohead". And with its very pop in every aspect it had caught my attention once and for all!

And this is the lyrics from the internet:

Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it's getting us drunk
Singing here's to never growing up
Call up all our friends
Go hard this weekend
For no damn reason,
I don't think we'll ever change
Meet you at the spot,
Half past ten o'clock
We don't ever stop,
And we're never gonna change
Say,wont you stay forever
Stay if you stay forever
Hey we can stay forever young ohhh
Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it's getting us drunk
Singing here's to never growing up
We'll be running down the street, yelling kiss my ass
I'm like yeah whatever, we're still living like that,
When the sun's going down, we'll be raising our cups
Singing here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah here's to never growing up
We live like rock stars
Dance on every bar
This is who we are,
I don't think we'll ever change
They say just grow up but they don't know us
We don't give a fuck and we're never gonna change
Say, oh just say forever, stay
If you stay forever, hey
We can stay forever young
Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it's getting us drunk
Singing here's to never growing up
We'll be running down the street, yelling kiss my ass
I'm like yeah whatever, we're still living like that,
When the sun's going down, we'll be raising our cups
Singing here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah here's to never growing up
Say, won't you stay forever stay
If you stay forever hey
We can stay forever young
Ohhhhhhh
Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs
With the boom box blaring as we're falling in love
I got a bottle of whatever, but it's getting us drunk
Singing here's to never growing up
We'll be running down the street, yelling kiss my ass
I'm like yeah whatever, we're still living like that,
When the sun's going down, we'll be raising our cups
Singing here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah here's to never growing up
Oh woah oh woah ( raise your glass and say )
Here's to never growing up

By the way upon browsing the photos of my cousin Ruben who's in Saudi Arabia now I got these very delightful pictures on the way to his work. He is a professional truck driver in the Kingdom. I might contact him if ever I will be in Saudi too.

Yesterday too I had this online conversation to a man I considered my second father. He is a dad of one of my bestfriend and he is in Saudi too now. He advised me about a life-changing decision and take it from the expert (him) he left me with such big question of how determined I am to consider a career outside the Philippines. I said my reasons and he was convinced and promised that we will be in touch the moment I have arrived in Saudi and if distance permits. He is almost in Saudi his entire life and he is about to retire early next year. He is a power plant operator in Yanbu.

Fishing - It's More Fun In Dammam!

QIPP Pinoy Team did it again! last Thursday night and we had so much fun in Dammam Cornich catching fish and actually grilling it..then had some picnic with rice and vegetables - all Pinoy style food in the land of the king and oil!..

And I think this is our life in the face of unknown fears and distant family - creating friendships and lasting memories that once we are having fun in this country that is often mistakenly as boring and no fun will be generated..well we are wrong and thanks God for that!
