Every now and then, we find a special friend

Who can ever forget this romantic part of Casper The Movie? It was the most “kilig” part of the movie because this was the time Casper turned into Devon Sawa (who was so cute by the way) and he danced with Kat (played by Christina Ricci. Watch this to reminisce about that cute romantic moment. Love is in the air!

Mr. Boombastic

Did someone just say Mr. Boombastic? Here’s that 90’s commercial (it’s so cute, reminds me of Gumby).

F.L.A.M.E.S.

 

I used to have a very superstitious aunt. She once told me a story about how I can see the face of the man I am going to marry. Her instructions included: lighting up a candle at 12:00 midnight and facing a mirror. She asked me to pray while staring at the mirror.

Of course I didn’t do it. I’m not a believer in soulmates (violent reactions?). I love the idea but it sounds too good to be true. Adding to this soulmate cynicism is the childhood game of F.L.A.M.E.S. (we used to do this a lot in the sixth grade in the Philippines).

F.L.A.M.E.S stands for Friends, Lovers, Anger, Marriage, Engagement, and Soulmates. You get the name of two people. Cross out the similar letters in their names, and then total the number of the remaining letters. You then count the numbers against the acronym and then you get a future prediction of your ‘relationship’ with the person (whose name you wrote down beside yours).

Philippine TV recognized this mini phenomenon among the females and decided to capitalize on it. In the nineties, ABS-CBN launched a show entitled Flames. It featured the latest teen stars in various love stories which, made my after-school afternoons better.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]

  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]

  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
