88/365: The Song That Changed My Gloomy Mood and Became My LSS

29th of March 2014

I was working overtime on a weekend that my mood was so gloomy plus that I’m not feeling that good due to the current back pain that I ‘m experiencing.  In short what I was feeling really sucks!  Whoops! sorry for the language but I can’t think of any other term but “suck”. Whoops again!

If I could just make myself a super-machine or grab a magic wand to instantly finish what I’m working on so I can go home.  Or if what I’m working on is not needed I would rather crumple in bed and rot. I mean rest. Though sometimes I call myself a “Super Woman” there are really this kind of time that I tell myself that I am  just human.

The surroundings does not help as well as there are few people around doing same (stupid) heroic act that I’m doing. We are wearing the same faces that says “I wanna go home!” 

Then someone from another department came in, set up his desk and went straight to the centralized music player.  Suddenly I heard something that I haven’t heard for ages but is definitely my favorite.  The music immediately took me out of my gloomy mood, loosen my uptight nerve and sort of ease my back pain a bit!  In just some seconds I was discreetly humming the song. 

When the song ended there was a short pause and to my surprise the song was playing again and someone is singing along with gusto!  This person really likes this song I thought. 

I curiously peeked to check who’s the other soul on this work place who knows this song except for me and saw a familiar face of a singing young guy (that I don’t know personally or by name).  When he saw that I sort of  checking curiously he immediately said “Ooops sorry I thought….”

“No it’s fine it’s a great song” was my reply.

Actually what I’d like to say was “No it’s fine you actually did me a favor when you played that song.  Which is so true because I really love the melody and the lyrics of this song.

It feels so good to suddenly hear your favorite song unexpectedly .  I am also amused that a younger person seems to love the song by heart.

I bet most of you does not know this song ha ha! I intentionally did not include the song title and the singer here – it’s up to you to find it out.  But you need to agree with me that the lyrics is great and sort of mysterious.

♫ Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed
I ain't ready for the altar but I do agree there's times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine
Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind
Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don't mind sayin', I just can't make it
Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind
Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don't mind sayin', I just can't make it
Doo wop doo wop ...♫”
And so I went home from work singing this song… until now.

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children

“this place will break your heart, will make you cry, will make you want to reach out, and will make you feel grateful & thankful, all at the same time…”   They are located at: 1030 Tayuman Street, Tondo, Manila. Their telephone number is (+632) 255-0832 and the contact person is Sister Anselm. I wrote that caption in this same season last year, my first time to visit a place called “Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children”.  I was with a  group of friends along with our respective families.  I could never be thankful enough to our friend Rupert and his family for leading us to this place.  It was not my first time to do a charity visit to an orphanage and I sort of wonder why we were “brief” that this is for special children.  I only realized what that briefing is about when I see for myself how “special” these children are.  I apologize if this may not sound good to some, but the sight of the sick children is heartbreaking.  I tried to look tough and not to
