Kids and I were on our way to a dinner with friends last Friday at Itaewon. We went down the Itaewon Station and took a cab towards PaolodiMaria, the Italian restaurant chosen for the night. The friendly ajossi immediately high-fived the kids and ask where we are from. Upon hearing we are from the Philippines, he started singing Anak, a very popular Filipino song which was translated into several languages:
Too bad, it took me awhile before I realized this is a moment to capture. And I think I turned it off too soon for he still continued singing after I ended the recording.
He may not have sung the lyrics perfectly, oftentimes forgetting some words but that ajossi made the kids really glad. When we got out of the taxi, LeRuof said, “He is the friendliest taxi driver, Mommy!”.
