There's something special about being out at night. Simply walking feeling the breeze. If there's an experience that can represent what freedom is supposed to feel like, maybe this could be it.
My parents were very protective when I was young. They still are, and I turned to appreciate it now, but definitely hated it when I was younger. I was never allowed to be out-of-home when night time comes. I remember when a classmate sneaked his stepfather's tricycle to go to our house. On the way there he told our other male classmate to remove his piercings so that they will look more presentable (or believable?). They then faced my parents and asked them, "isasama po sana namin si <insert my name here> para gumawa ng project".
Dad was in an exceptionally foul mood and Mom looked her angriest self that it felt like a miracle when they said 'yes'. That was only after my classmates promised to send me back home once we're done. I was so embarrassed at the hassle that I caused my classmates, and at the same time, relieved--and freed.
We went to the topmost floor of a 3-story house. Or was it 4? Basta mataas. We were at the balcony, facing the stars and the night sky, I can still feel the night breeze on my face. Freedom.
May ganda ang gabi na hindi mo makikita sa umaga. It's a time when you can bare your hearts out without fearing other people's judgment because you know the darkness got you.
I watched Hello, Love, goodbye last Friday. Dami ko lang naalala. The movie ended around 12mn. I walked acrossed EDSA, headed home and wondered whether to actually go home or just find a place to chill and think. Felt it again. Freedom.
Ang dami paring sasakyan sa EDSA kahit past 12 na. I remember the movie. Kung realistic ang portrayal at plot, ang hirap pala ng buhay sa Hong Kong. I earn fine even without flexing a muscle pero ang dami dami ko pa ring reklamo sa buhay.
Masaya ako. Hindi ko nga lang alam kung anong gagawin ko sa buhay ko, pero masaya ko. Okay lang naman yun di ba? Walang dereksyon?
Siguro malalaman mong tumatanda ka na pag nagtatanong ka na ng mga ganitong bagay.
Btw, ang gwapo ni Alden.
