checkered skirts 25 years from now.

Last night we watched "Once On This Island" at the RCBC Theater in Makati. It was sponsored by St. Paul College Manila Batch '81 who are Jubilarians this year (my Tita Karen was one of them). Mom, Tita Guada and I came along. Paulinians unite! Hehe. Bituin Escalante, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Menchu Lauchengco and Michael De Mesa were some of the main characters. The play was really nice. It proved that love could conquer the powers of rain, sickness, the earth and even death. In the end, Ti Moune the peasant and Daniel Bizou the Rich Frenchman didn't end up together because they belonged in different worlds, but their love grew and became a tree. It was so heartwarming. I rate it 8/10. :)

I always look forward to class reunions especially those of my mom and titas because they were all Paulinians like me. [but they are from St. Paul Manila]. I enjoy listening to their anecdotes about their terror teachers [who sound like predecessors of my current teachers! ;p] or their gimmicks with their friends just outside the school. And I always get surprised when they tell me that there were lots of celebrities who were Paulinians as well, even Sharon Cuneta! They told me that when they were in college, Sharon was a high school sophomore and she was always tied to the flagpole so that she would sing "Mr. DJ"! Haha, how funny. I guess that's why she transferred after a few years. :) But that doesn't mean Paulinians are mean already. I read somewhere that Paulinian graduates are known for their kindness and warmth. :) Wheeee.. proud Paulie!

I wonder.. when we reach out 25th year as high school graduates, would we look the same? Just a thought. I mean, everytime my mom sees one of her "sistahs" in high school, she always recognizes them, parang kahapon lang sila huling nagkita. But when I look at their yearbook.. siya ba yun?! Haha.. I hope I don't age much 25 years from now. :) Thinking about these things makes me excited about going back to school again. I guess I've caught the "I-miss-school" syndrome once more! My uniform is waiting for me to spill juice or spaghetti sauce on it, to accidentally write ink lines on it, to pull when we're playing rowdy games.. and to just wear proudly. 25 years from now, I wouldn't be wearing the same old uniform as an everyday outfit but I know my heart will forever do. :)

That checkered skirt has got me. :p

Okay, change topic. My papa went home from Singapore already! Yaay! :) And we'll be watching Star Wars today [oh yeah!]. But he'll be leaving again on wednesday -- this time for Vietnam for my tito's wedding. Aww. I'm gonna miss him again. And he won't be home for my recital. But that's okay, my mom's got my back anyway. But for the next few days I'll be home alone since our maid went back to her province for her vacation.. and since mom and dad are away [mom's in the office], I'm the Queen of the House! Oh yeah! I get to cook, clean and take care of the house by myself.. woohoo! :) I love being left in the house, not because I'll be having phone marathons or just laze around, but because it makes me feel responsible and grown-up. I cook my own meals, wash the dishes, clean the house.. I'm the house lady. :) Pesky cockroaches will be deadmeat. *bwahaha* :)
