Afraid to scratch the tracks and ruin the record, I held my breath to steady my hands as I lifted the needle from the recording that played on the vinyl player. Abruptly, the music stopped and silence descended like the sword of Damocles. I replaced the vinyl record with a more upbeat “Manila Sounds” and chase it with syncopated dance steps.
You may be stunned at how we do things back in the days – quite understandably so. But each time we reminisce, the memory never fails to crack a smile into our faces. Especially when pictures are shared and talked upon – in real-time. Such is CLASSIC BAI, TITOS AND TITAS OF CEBU, a Facebook group page that features anything and everything old timer from 1960’s to 1990’s. And so, the past is a repertoire of memories good and bad, yet the mind tends to romanticize the past to make us feel bad of the present.
