I bet at least once in your life, napanood niyo yung “Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?” na movie nina Jolina Magdangal at Marvin Agustin. I think I have watched it three or four times already.
Do you remember that scene where Ned (Agustin) would climb a ladder that went directly to Bujoy’s (Magdangal) room? They were best friends since they were a child and their parents trust them enough to give them direct access to each other’s rooms.
Wala akong childhood best friend. I have a lot of close friends now, some I can even consider a best friend. Pero wala yung tipong kakausapin ko siya or bubulabugin without having to think if nakakaistorbo na ba ko. Nung nakatira pa ako sa bahay namin sa Cavite at medyo hindi maganda ang mga nangyayari sa buhay ko, I would just stay in my room, lie down and constantly wish na sana may best friend ako na kahit hindi ko sinabihan ay biglang kakatok sa bintana ko para samahan ako just because he or she felt that I needed company.
Bigla kong na namang naalala yung longing desire ko to really have a best friend because of “Jane by design.” In that series, Jane lives a double life as a high school student and as an assistant to a fashion executive. Therein lies the whole brouhaha of trying to be two people at once. At siyempre, to help her get through this cover up is a loyal childhood best friend, Billy.
There was one episode where their high school dance coincided with an event of the company she works for. Luckily, the venues for both events were only a few blocks apart. Ang nangyari, Billy just stayed inside a cubicle in the ladies room the whole time with Jane’s clothes para makapagpalit siya ng damit and rush off to the other event. Not only that, when Jane returned to the dance and saw that it was already finished, with her date leaving her, Billy was waiting for her outside to fetch her home.
Sobrang na-touch ako sa mga ganung eksena. There are a lot more like that in the series and every single time, I wish na sana may ganun din akong confidante.
Oh well, I may not have a childhood best friend, but I know it is not too late to have a real best friend.
Time to wish on a star.
