Last September, I volunteered for I Want Peace Concert in University of Mindanao. Among the great bands that played were the main artists Malay & Barbie Almalbis. Honestly, I was not there to see them but the idea of volunteering for RockEd Philippines sounds great. It's been years since I want to engage activities to that group and this is the first time I've ever volunteered for them.
Barbie Almalbis was one of the female rock stars I adore back in elementary and high school. And I never knew I would fall in love with her music again after years. She was the last one to play and I found myself sitting in front of her, looking at her and listening to her lovely voice.
When she played my favorite songs of her, I realized: I still love this girl! I was singing along and I feel happy for my 14-year-old self.
I felt nostalgic while singing along some old songs that I still surprisingly love! I couldn't help myself but to sing the words that were familiar to me. Childhood memories rushed inside my head when she played Tabing Ilog, Money For Food & Goodnyt.
I had dinner around midnight with all the bands and organizers after the concert. It was a privilege to be part of the team. Thank you, Rock Ed Philippines and OPPAP for making this concert happen. I'd love to see you again, Barbie! :)
