yellow and red

The sudden death of world's pop icon Michael Jackson brought me on a nostalgia trip to my "bagets" days. Back when disco music blasts and moonwalk steps on the dancefloor. MJ is legendary for his crouch gripping performance.

Now, the icon of democracy former president Cory Aquino. Well, blame it with the big C. I have seen Tita Cory several times but did not bother photo ops. That was more than 20 years ago. Having witnessed countless political rallies, the yellow ribbons and yellow confettis along Ayala, to the water canons and high voltage barricades along Mendiola. I have seen the People Power at Edsa to the seige of Malacanang.

They were all in yellow, I was in red. That era, the Laban sign was in. They flash the L, I flashed the V. This is funny but I patronized Red Ribbon and evaded Goldilocks. ha ha...............

SOBRA NA, TAMA NA, PALITAN NA, irritated my ears and would embrace CORY WALANG ALAM!

I realised just few years back, what I believed in the past, wala nang kabuluhan ngayon. I regret i did not see rather did not recognize her effort, simplicity, toughness, sincerity and kababaang loob in ruling the nation. I admit I was regionalistic and I'm sorry.

Sorry, thank you and goodbye Tita Cory. Job well done, may your tribe increase!!!!
