both a country boy and a city boy

“oh give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
don’t fence me in.”

while the conveniences that the modern, urban jungle offers are really nice (first class health care, malls, high-speed internet), i still long for “land, lots of land” as the song says. open spaces are the things that i mostly crave now. it’s what i miss about living in the countryside.

but i can have that too here in the city… if only i were a few million pesos richer. LOL!

we live near McKinley Hill and Bonifacio Global City — uber expensive places to live in. but really well-planned urban spaces — and i just love it there. you can stroll into a mall, a few steps away, there’s a linear park to run or relax. a few minutes drive and you’re at a european-inspired enclave where there’s a plaza to feed pigeons and a man-made river to ride a gondola. and the houses aren’t jammed together like a stack of boxes in a delivery van.

so we make the most of it. well, i’d like to, specially on weekends. drive there, enjoy a little bit of breathing space, take time to be ‘free’.

but i still want lots of land. 😀 hehehe

before there was ‘Titibo tibo’…

there was “babadapbadap”

and it’s by Gary Granada!

well, the songs are very different in their messages. babadapbadap is a humorous political commentary of sorts in a song. the other one is that of romantic love. still, both songs are quite enjoyable to listen to.

and here’s my favorite choir rendition of the song!

some more ‘rigid’ religious people might be offended but i just enjoyed this one…
