Mamma Mia! soundtrack

My mother have always liked ABBA songs so i grew up listening to their songs that's why i appreciate the movie so much. I admit to crying in one scene in the movie and the accompaniment song. it was the scene that meryl streep was watching her daughter get ready for her wedding. Slipping through my fingers is one song that deeply moved me. i wanted to hug my mother out right and tell her that no matter what happens in my life, she will always be my one and only greatest love. that without her i would be nothing in this world. i am pasting the song in my blog. i sure do hope people will relate to it. i hope people will realize that we don't have an eternity to spend the rest of our lives with our parents who would do everything to make us happy and would never ever forsake us though the whole world betrays us, our parents will always be there for us.

i love my mother so much. i might be hard headed but i will always love my mother and deep inside of me, i will forever remember her actions, her words and her love which is forever etched in my heart.

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that Im losing her forever
And without really entering her world
Im glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I cant deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didnt
And why I just dont know

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in her mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers...

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile...

Mamma Mia!

How i love the movie. I've always loved musicals, i don't know why. the movie might not have a very deep story but it is not shallow either. i love how the characters professed their love for each other. how they took care of their friendship, love affairs, and mother and daughter love. this movie is a hit for me. a bonus is the abba soundtrack which i grew up listening to (i'm listening to it up until now) since my mother loves this band so much.

Gossip Girl

Been in bed for like the whole day watching DVDs and re-runs on TV. Since it's a holiday I thought i should treat myself for a day of relaxation. The Gossip Girl series has been kind of addicting which i believe is because of the fact that teenagers experience the on screen scenes in their lives. I kind of focuses on drugs, vices and queen bees in high school life.

Every high school has a queen bee. And almost everyone in school wants to suck up to these queen bees either for popularity or for being in. i always questioned the fact that high school can never be without queen bees. why does every student who is not so popular are bullied by queen bees.

watching the movie makes me wonder why i never helped the bullied students. i was never a queen bee neither was i bullied back in school. i had my fair share in its history, being a constant contender for beauty queen title in high school, a president o various organizations and of course the sought after prom queen title.

i was all these but i don't get people who bullies other just to show them that they are better. are they afraid that taking off their chameleon jacket would make them less popular or less accepted. not that i am bad mouthing gossip girl, it's just that every time i see the TV series i can always relate to it. i always remember our high school corridors and all the suck ups and its queen bees.

looking back, you will wonder who are afraid to be left alone, is it the queen bee or her battalion? just wondering.
