091910 - The Urban Tracker (In Cavite) - Wind It Up At Imus Terminal

Banana Q, a popular Pinoy snack item looks very appetizing in Imus terminal arcade. 

y appetite was almost bursting on the mere sight of that tempting banana Q as I was about to take my last ride home at  Imus terminal when an old friend  appeared from behind. It's Ate Tess, great scot! It's been 2nd time bumping around with her here in this spot. This time no more second thoughts as she asked me to hang out in one of the terminal joints.

As expected, It's another of those pretty cool seedy karaoke bars - a stopover for those seeking solace. On this Sunday rush, it's weird to be in the chillax mode but it's worth to get stranded and catch the missing rhythms of time. The server guy tossed the mini pail of ice on our table followed by a glass for each of us. Such a courtesy to pick up from the moment, I started pouring the Red Horse beer soon foaming with ice.

A Red Horse beer and a glass with ice makes a hang out moment a spry.
We're almost done with our chat round that she couldn't contain to tell the server guy to drop the coin for that certain song by Imelda Papin. The tune she perfectly mastered for years and I would love to hear her sing. In between her belts, I was already scouring for my comfort songs on the songbook. All along I was rooting for the 80's tune of Heaven In Your Eyes by Loverboy. But I ended up with EBTG's  Didn't Know I was Looking For Love and Soul Asylum's Runaway Train.

At her most beautiful, Ate Tess in all smiles.
It never fails to have a fun karaoke stint with Ate Tess looking at her radiant smile, how can it not be infecting? Her endearing presence she kept despite everything that came her way. For most part, I am glad I met a good soul in her apart from the tales of her survival which I admire. There's some people's lives that can never be our own but definitely we value. But seeing Ate Tess today in all smiles, she all owed it to her honesty and it looks like she didn't screwed up at all.

Looking at this karaoke of late Mike Francis gave me vivid memories of not so dead and gone old days.
