Somewhere in the ether there’s a photo of me with both Chito Miranda and Rico Blanco. True story! I was in first or second year college then and it was a music event at the Ateneo Covered Courts. The hottest band back then was Barbie and everybody was screaming their hearts out for Barbie. Meanwhile, me and my friend Angie inched our way to Chito Miranda and Rico Blanco who were seated somewhere on the side, introduced ourselves, had my photo taken, and got their autographs. I don’t have a copy of the photo or the autographs. I’m a big fan of those two so it might just have been a dream. But I swear it happened.
Tomorrow, I’ll get another chance to get close with Chito Miranda and Parokya ni Edgar, my all-time favorite band since high school. They’re performing live at Abreeza. And I have VIP Passes. HAPPINESS! I do hope there’s a meet and greet session.
I might sound like a big dork, but I really love Parokya ni Edgar. Like I seriously <3 them. I blame my high school friends for this obsession. My high school classmates played the Buruguduystungstugudungstuy album in the classroom every chance they got. So yeah, Parokya ni Edgar reminds me of my high school days and all the craziness and drama that my classmates and me got into.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, of me watching Parokya ni Edgar live, here's some of my favorite Parokya ni Edgar songs.
Because f*ck yeah, ugly people need to be reminded that they’re not all that. Wag i-feel please.
The song that introduced us to Parokya ni Edgar. Back then they wore women’s clothes from what looked like an ukay ukay bin.
Because it was and still is one of my favorite love songs. I swear I will demand that my future boyfriend/lifepartner or *GASP* husband to know how to play this song on the guitar.
I’m also a super fan of Kaye Abad so a part of me died when she broke up with Chito. Moving on…
Chito Miranda + Rico Blanco
I’m sure some of you are freaked out or laughing out loud with this superfandom post. No, nobody forced or paid me to write this.
This is for all my high school friends who, in their own special way, made me a better person. CHEERS! Miss you all.
