Singing like Yaman
at 7 years old, i sang 'ngayon at kailanman' with so much gusto to the right lyrics but the awkward trying hard tones. it has become a 'classic' at home, all my family would laugh heartily of the memory; laugh so much to the point of crying. i didn't care, i just had to sing. hearing Yaman sing 'Ako'y Isang Pinoy' (the national anthem at 24 zone 6 concepcion pequena) and 'Bayang Magiliw' (the national anthem of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, i could see and hear myself. i was as thin. with long hair. in sandos and shorts that showed my thin reed legs. eager to impress. so i kept on singing.
