OPM Hit of the Week: Is She Thinking About Me?

Another one of those great Pinoy ballads from Jose Mari Chan.
Is She Thinking About Me features Christine Bersola in his 1994 album, Thank You Love.

Sign in to imeem to listen to the track.

Lyrics from Lyrics:OPM Pinoy Songs at

Is she thinking about me
Does she remember my name
Is she hoping I’d call
Do I matter at all
Or her feelings the same

Is he thinking about me
Does he remember my name
How I wish he would call
Do I matter at all
And will I ever be the same

Yet I know what she’s feeling
I can still feel the touch of her hand
I could swear this is just the beginning
Please let her be thinking of me

I’m the one of the many
How could I be the girl of his dreams
Was I caught by surprise
When I looked in his eyes, I saw me

20 Years of TV Patrol

As a child of the 90s, hearing Noli de Castro's voice from our television set (and from our carpenter/house boy/home caretaker's radio) meant that it was 6:00 PM. I knew then that it was time to put my toys back to the shelves coz in a while, dinner will be served.

Somehow, the trio composed of our dear Kabayan Noli, Ka Kiko Evanglista (RIP) andMel Tiangco, gave me the Ka-Pamilya feeling. Evenings were not complete without watching TV Patrol--even if I did not care much about the current events. (Interest was only aroused when it was my turn to be the news reporter for my HEKASI class.)

I waited for Angelique Lazo's showbiz news, again, not because I cared, but only because I thought she looked very pretty.

If there was something informational which I looked forward to in the show, it was Erni Baron's (also RIP) weather report (to know if there was a typhoon coming and hoping that if there was, classes will be suspended--sorry, I was young then. I did not know that typhoons are disastrous.) and his Q&A portions.

ABS-CBN will be showing a documentary TV Patrol: 20 Taon ng Pagpapatrol tonight (Nov 25, Sunday) after Pinoy Big Brother.

READY, GET SET, GAME: Ang Family Computer

Ready, Get Set, Game!

Everything about your favorite games in the 90s:
backyard games, video games, game shows, etc.

Naalala mo pa ba ito?

  • Ito ang isa sa mga pinaka-aabangan mo tuwing summer kasi saka mo lang ito pwedeng malaro. Usually, nakatago ito kapag pasukan.
  • Kung mahigit dalawa kayong magkakapatid, malamang nag-agawan na kayo sa joystick o naiinis ka pag salit-salitan kayo tapos magaling ang kalaban mo.

Not-So Recent Movie: CLUELESS


In 1995, we saw high school girls Cher, Dionne and Tai (Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash and Brittany Murphy) strut their stuff in the hippest clothes, trendiest items (micro-tac phones and pagers) and coolest lingo.

Some unforgettable scenes:

1. Cher falls from the bed while attempting to seduce Christian.
2. "She could be a farmer in her clothes." Amber's nasty comment on Tai, the new girl.
3. "You're a virgin who can't drive." Tai's harsh remark to Cher.
4. "How many times have I told you not to call me woman?!?" Dionne to boyfriend Murray.
5. The water works behind Cher when she realized "Oh my God! I'm in love with Josh."
6. Cher's hi-tech wardrobe.

If you have forgotten these scenes, well, AS IF!
