Dedicated to my grandaughter

I threw a wish in the well, Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell, and now you're in my way
I trade my soul for a wish, pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this, but now you're in my way
Your stare was holdin', Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin' Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy,
but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
It's hard to look right, at you baby,
but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy,
but here's my number, so call me, maybe?

And all the other boys, try to chase me,
but here's my number, so call me, maybe? You took your time with the call,
I took no time with the fall  You gave me nothing at all,
but still, you're in my way I beg, and borrow and steal
Have foresight and it's real  I didn't know I would feel it,
but it's in my way Your stare was holdin', Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin' Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
It's hard to look right, at you baby, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
And all the other boys, try to chase me, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
And you should know that I missed you so, so bad
It's hard to look right, at you baby,
but here's my number, so call me, maybe?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
And all the other boys, try to chase me, but here's my number, so call me, maybe?
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad  I missed you so bad I missed you so so bad
Before you came into my life  Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad And you should know that

So call me, maybe?

Ibanag and Filipino Childbirth Rituals

"For parents, birth rituals and ceremonies provide an immediate sense of connection as well as inclusion of the child into the clan, tribe or community. These rituals establish at a very early stage, who they are. The rituals also serve as guideposts as they grow and develop their own sense of identity. Even if they drift away from or reject their heritage, their early experiences give them a place to return to if they so choose".

The Ibanag culture is filled with childbearing rituals and practices which have been handed down from one generation to another. Here are some of them.

1. It is said that if a pregnant woman has a lot of blemishes or pimples on her face, her baby will be a girl.
2. If the mother glows and radiates beauty, the baby will be a boy.
3. If the mother craves for sweets and other carbohydrates, the baby will be a girl.
4. If the mother is craving for oily or fried foods, the baby will be a boy.
5. The mother should not eat 'balut' (a native duck egg d…

Learn the Ibanag dialect?

As I mentioned in one of my prior posts somewhere in one of my blogs, the Ibanag dialect is somewhat difficult to learn because when you speak it you can sound like a chirping bird :-)

I learned the dialect by just hearing it from my Mother who use it everytime her relatives come to our home to visit. And this was not that often. You see, her relatives from Isabela, that's where she was born, come to spend their vacation with us every summer, yes the whole summer months. And yes, EVERY summer of EVERY year. Well, they don't come empty handed. They bring sacks of rice, ample stocks of meat enough to feed all of us for 1 month. They bring live animals too, like chicken, piglets, not to mention baskets of fruits and vegetables, even our neighbors get their share.

Wherever Ibanags are, you know they are around because they are so loud and so noisy. They have this habit of speaking all at the same time :-)Sigh. Now if that is not enough reason for anyone to learn the dialect, I …
