Woke up on a late Saturday morning, Montevideo time, feeling so Zenned up. Got no itinerary whatsoever aside from the usual post-snoozing-the-alarm-clock “social network” to do’s. It’s usually Facebook then Plurk then Twitter (arranged accordingly on my iPhone). Then I came across this hashtag #sentisabado and got me hooked on Twitter for the rest of the morning and early afternoon.
Most contributions, as the name suggests, are all reminiscent of the Pinoy pop culture. Be it about a now defunct TV show on RPN9 or IBC13, or some old and iconic Kapamilya and Kapuso shows, or about junk food that’s no longer available in your favorite sari-sari store or just about anything that reminds of how naive life was back then.
Part of my share:
I think I had my first glance of the same trending last week (or last, last week) through Ramon and I remember sharing some bits of my jologs past. But this Saturday was different. First senti entries that greeted me, surprisingly, were from celebs like Anne Curtis and Tim Yap. That fueled me up a lot and did my share of some goodies straight from the mahiwagang baul. “Wisdom” kept on going for hours, making me almost skip meals. I don’t remember being away from home on a Saturday morning this fun and engaging.
On a serious note, the whole she-bang (that made it to some online news) proves that we, Filipinos, aside from being united for a time, can have a sense of history. We just know. We take note of the details. So long as it doesn’t get us into something serious like going to the streets for another EDSA revolt or being vocal about our frustration for Erap making it to the second spot during the last elections, we remember. Now I don’t know if it’s a good thing or what. For the meantime, I’ll just wait for the next Saturday.
P.S. By the way, here are some pictures from this week and last week.
