I’m feeling nostalgic today

“Please Don’t”

David Byrne & Fatboy Slim (Feat. Santigold)

I discovered this video while browsing through other blogs. I remember my youth. I remember my dearly loved nanny who was born right across the Malacañang of the North in Suba, Paoay. I miss the Apo — the most illustrious Philippine president since he came into office. He was president when I was born.

Madam = Flair. I want her cheetah print long tunic vest, her Pucci sheath and all her sunglasses, most especially the over-size cateyes she was wearing with  the white terno… and the parasol that probably was part of the outfit. Major chicness. I guess Nancy Reagan looked frumpy in the company of Mrs. Marcos.

Bye. I’m off to the ukay place… gonna try to find an umbrella that suits this pair of eye covers. On a different note, funny how Karl Lagerfeld put it — his dark sunglasses are meant to be worn when talkin’ to strangers. Oh, well.

P.S. The video is the first of six videos from the David Byrne/ Fatboy Slim album Here Lies Love. Read interesting tidbits about the vid — like “handbag diplomacy”.
