"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

blasts from the past

last night, cinema buddy and i's talk about ninja movies that we used to watch when we were li'l kids paved way for what i'd refer to as blasts from the past: memories of tv, movie and drama-on-radio mania of the 80's and early 90's...

he-man and the masters of the universe.



care bears.

rainbow brite.



batibot. bulilit. chikiting patrol. ang tv. pandakekoks. dayuhan. regal shocker. lunch date. sama-sama together (s.s.t.), si goot da wanderpol (waaa...i don't know if i'm spelling it right!). boyoyoy, the wonder boy. milyonaryong mini. that's entertainment (and the sheryl-romnick, manilyn-janno, tina-chris tandems). young love, sweet love. adorra, diyosa sa makiling. niño, ang batang... (i forgot what's next. is it gamhanan?) kini ang akong suliran. handumanan sa usa ka awit.


sarah, ang munting prinsesa. mara clara. villa quintana. ober da bakod. kate n boogie. lovingly yours. kung may katwiran, ipaglaban mo. shake, rattle, and roll.


flying house (and the superkids craze).

karate kid.


teenage mutant ninja turtles.

child's play(hi! i'm chucky, wanna play?..*grins wickedly*).

fido dido.

beetle juice.

omaigulai! i'm so good at reminiscing, i'm humiliating myself! bwahahaha...

wait. isang hirit pa...

isang tulog na lang, jollibee na naman.
ang araw lulubog, bukas mabubusog...
sa chickenjoy manok at hamburger bilog.
i love you sabado, kahit buong linggo.
hintay ka lang, jollibee, and'yan na ako.
panglasang pilipino, at home sa jollibee!

nope, i'm not advertising. i'm simply reminiscing.

  16. […] I came across Ate Joyce’s bulletin in Friendster entitled "Maalaala Mo Kaya…" ("Do You Remember…" to my shallow translation) and read through a checklist of treasured mementos from my golden age. I assume this was one of those anonymously forwarded emails/posts modified from its original version. Anyways, I was reminiscing deeply and thought I’d make this entry a bit interesting like a show and tell presentation like back in elementary school. And while Googling for images to associate with this entry, I bumped into a similar blog called "Blast From The Past" from the creative mind of the Caterpillar. She had already posted her version and simply puts it as "I’m not advertising. i’m simply reminiscing." Sigh, simply classic… simply "old skool." Read on… […]
