yup, i know...it's been half a year since my last post. i feel so sad about having a blog and not being able to maintain it. but am all ok. not really busy, just into some stage in life (maturity, i guess and i will post those life stages this week). but for now i am so compelled to post something nice and wonderful. well, actually something like ZERO DEGREES AND FALLING.
this is a very promising alternative rock band from down under i tell you, specially for the filipinos. ZDAF formed their hard working band in 2005 and since then they have gone into the mainstream of canberra's music scene. check this out:
the lead singer is ferdie (short for ferdinand) whose brother's name is bongbong (the drummer). does it ring a bell? i guess their dad is a fan of the former philippine president marcos. well, their family name is LOUIS and their mum is a certified pure illongga who's family is living in sum-ag.
in 1999, when i went to visit my sis in darwin, australia...i've met ferdie and another bro, murray and their sis rachel. they were my sis' hubby's nephew with three more siblings back in their home in tasmania. all so good looking. they were both teenagers at that time. aside from the common "g'day mate" greeting, ferdie taught me another slang that goes "how's it gawwn mate?" one time i was about to make my sis' porkroast and i can't reach for the turbo broiler, i was so glad ferdie dropped by and cuz he is 6-foot- something he just reached it simply and handed it to me.
and now they are so famous down under. i love their songs. it's the kind that gen X and my generation could get along well. my sis and i are their number one filipino fans!!! WAY TO GO GUYS!!!
