what we have in common

as a dedication to my father on this special day, here are seven things that we have in common other than having the same family name.

1. we love snorkeling. he taught us to snorkel at an early age that led us to love the sea even more.

2. we both admire Massimiliano Frezzato's comics. he draws the series "Keepers of the Masers" which is published on special issues of Heavy Metal magazine.

3. we enjoy listening soundtrack themes of John Williams and Hans Zimmer. we have a cd collection of musical scores of these two.

4. we enjoy traveling. he loves traveling long distance places. i do too. isn't that obvious? next time, i'll be in Bantayan island, i'll make sure he's with me.

5. we love watching movies with high quality sound system. our common favorite movies includes Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Planet of the Apes (1968 version), Back to the Future trilogy and Matrix. we can watch these movies again and again.

6. we both play drums. he used to have a band when he was in high school. i didn't have a band but we once jammed at home.


7. we believe in the same God. have the same faith. serving the same Lord.

Send my Father's Day greetings to your dad!

That is a beautiful way to honor your dad. What a duo. Perhaps some day we can hear you both make music on your blog?

God bless.

I miss my father I lost him almost 4 years ago. Being daddy's little girl, I miss him a lot. I miss his jokes, his laughters, his cooking, his wisdom and our conversations.

Btw, I like your blog, I hope you dont mind me adding you to my blogroll. :)

Happy Father's Day to your dad! Sounds like he raised his son really well. It's very admirable and heartwarming to meet people who are closely bonded to their fathers.

Lawstude said...

Dong inngit naman ako. Seems like your very close to your father. He is very lucky to have you. Happy dad's day.

BlogusVox said...

donG, your lucky to have a Dad who is also like a friend. I wish my Dad is like your Dad, but the only think we have in common is our profession. He grow up in a world where everything should be in its proper place. You know, father guides son, son obeys father. No questions ask, seniority rules.

I can't blame him either. He witness WWII as a child and discipline is a must to survived those trying times.

His completely different from your Dad, but his my Dad, that I can't deny. So to our Dads...

Happy Father's Day!

me said...

nakakaingit naman... the only thing na natatandaan kong sa tatay ko eh 'yong turuan nya ako mangisda...happy father's day to your dad... to all the dads..

redlan said...

>blogusvox, thanks! but what i admire from you is that you understand your dad. that's something he can be proud of you.

happy father's day vox!

>me mangyan, at least may naturuan at ang importante din at tama ang kanyang tinuruan.

happy father's day sa tatay mo.

>redlan, hehehe... pero marami rin kaming differences.

happy father's day!

>pietro, thanks! happy father's day! that was my initial idea upon looking it closely.

quinttarantino said...

This is a very nice post, Dong. On the soundtracks wouldn´t you consider adding Sakamato and Morricone?

quinttarantino said...

Meikah said...

the donG said...

>sho, thanks! i somewhat agree with that but it doesn't always happen. cheers!
