Childhood Moments with MAMA

December 1991, five days before Christmas.
Three tickets to the Movie: Beauty and the Beast.
IS cinema 2, Meycauayan, Bulacan, Philippines.
Popcorn, siopao, soda, chips and crackers.
Mama sits next to me and my dear sister, Pia.

My sis and I were both excited and overwhelmed as we waited the movie to start. This was our first family movie together (my little sister then was only six years old while I just turned eight a week ago). It was really a great bonding time that we could hardly forget.

I just couldn’t imagine how happy we were especially mama as she hugged and kissed her two little girls before, during and after the movie. When we were watching Beauty and the Beast, we kept on asking mama some dialogues as we could barely understand them (we speak Tagalog, by the way.)

What was clear to me: That time we only relied on visuals and common sense… of course! Specific lines and conversations were repeated by mama so as to
let us comprehend and appreciate each scene. The three of us went back home – happy, fulfilled and rejuvenated.

I really miss hanging out with Mama. Pia and I always get excited whenever Mama comes back home from abroad. She is in Macau right now, working and enjoying her days as a junior cook in one of the fine-dining restaurants at Venetian Hotel.

Mama, I just want you to know that we truly miss you. We are so proud of you, Mama. You are our inspiration… our strength and the wind beneath our wings! We love you, Mama Lorrie! We certainly wish that it'll be August 2009 now as you'll be coming home for my son's 1st b-day. See you, Mom.

By the way, early this morning, my little Eieo and I watched the animated film together online and were able to feel the same happiness and joy mom, Pia and I had before… exactly the same, I know. My son laughs out loud and gets more excited whenever he sees the characters move colorfully and sing brilliantly.

These moments are indeed priceless, aren’t they?

Anyway, I want you to take a peek... Hope you'll take pleasure in this heart-warming music video as much as we do... Feel the love, joy and excitement. Enjoy! I'm sure it's gonna be soooo Kilig!
