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:
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.
