Saw this book at Mt. Cloud bookstore while I was in Baguio, suddenly Batibot memories came rushing through.
I adore Batibot. It's safe to say that people same age (or close) as me grew up with Batibot on their tellies. We didn't have the Sesame Street gang, Dora the Explorer nor Phineas and Ferb. We had Pong Pagong, Kiko Matsing, Kapitan Basa, Sitsiritsit, Alibangbang, Direk, GingGing, NingNing, Ate Sienna, and of course, Kuya Bodjie. Kapitan Basa was sort of my personal favorite and hero. I got my love of reading from him :)
We were so happy and content.
I miss Batibot, singing along to Kapitbahay song and giggling whenever Irma daldal gives Direk a hard time.
Oh the memories a book can trigger.
Today is the 114th Independence day of my beloved country. Maligayang Araw ng Kasarinlan, Pilipinas kong mahal!
