#1 Crush

My first crush was Cyndi Lauper. I was in grade school.

You see, I’m an 80’s baby. I remember buying Pepsi just so I can have a plastic water mug with a wild and crazy Cyndi imprinted on it.

Back in the day, I had really crushes on girls who were not seen as conventionally beautiful.

Another case in point, Tori Spelling. This was during my high school days. I remember mailing her this gigantic birthday card. In return, she sent me a mail merged fan mail. I was stoked.

I also had a crush on my first cousin. Wait a minute. Hold your judgment. Let me just say that she’s hot. 

Hot or not...yeah, I know. It’s weird. But I was just a kid back then.

My infatuation with her ended when my mom blurted out that my cousin had bad odor. That was the deal breaker for me.

yeah i wrote to eric buhain once (maybe after the 1991 manila sea games) after watching him in "eye to eye." (yes with ate luds) he sent me a handwritten letter (beat that!) which made me really kilig! i also received a generic fan mail from NKOTB.

ganyan tlg ang mga 80s kids!

i got a letter and a picture from isabel granada! eh hindi ko nga sya kilala then..yun pala helper namin ang nagsulat but she used my name just incase my mom finds out she's been sending fan mails using our address..she hates that.

my #1 crush back then was francis magalona--'cold summer nights' days..and memorize ko ang 'mga kababayan ko' :)

Raft3R said...

anonymous, Whoa! I don't kiss and tell. So I guess it would be unfair if I ask you to spill more juicy stuff. Thanks for sharing, though.
