You might think that the title of this post is misleading for why would I write about a teeny bopper song. But no, you are in the right place and my story is really about this popular song by the young group One Direction entitled “What Makes You Beautiful.”
This afternoon, hubby told me that the family is going to have dinner on January 31 for Chinese New Year. I thought, okay fine, because at the back of my mind, I assumed that it was another family gathering of my husband’s side of the family (uncles, aunties, and cousins). We always do that and I am very comfortable in that group. Then I remembered that this is not going to be a family affair but rather a ticketed affair for the Chinese-Filipino community of Bacolod City. I am not even sure who organized the event.Alright, I felt like a clumsy, shy teenager, like this girl in the One Direction music video. LOL Photo is a screen capture from the video.
I am not sure why but a wave of panic came over me. Maybe it is because I haven’t gone out for awhile that I have not physically maintained myself. For one, I combed my hair maybe just once a week. I have not done some personal stuff, like had a haircut in ten months, a facial for more than a year, and clean my toe nails for two weeks. I know, it’s icky, but sorry, I had just been a busy mom lately with online stuff, the baby, and of course, Dindin’s requirements at school. Sleep had been elusive and it seems that I have a hovering headache that doesn’t go away. To top it all off, I couldn’t think of what to wear because as you know, I have already decided to keep on wearing on my generic V Neck shirts. Now, I would have to think of what else to wear and it is stressing me out. hahaha So I said I don’t want to go.
Dennis asked me why. I said, I don’t know, but somehow I felt insecure. During this exchange, we were actually chatting on Facebook. For a moment, he didn’t reply but when he did, this is what he said:
“♪ You’re insecure, ♫ ♬ Don’t know what for, ♪
Baby you light up my world like nobody else, The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed, But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell, You don’t know, Oh, oh, You don’t know you’re beautiful…
If only you saw what I can see, You’d understand why I want you so desperately, Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe, You don’t know, Oh, oh, You don’t know you’re beautiful, Oh, oh, That’s what makes you beautiful.”
hihihi Okay…I’m kilig again! hahaha He just knows how to push the right buttons. LOL Alright, hubby had not always been like this. I mean, when we were still dating, he was kinda clueless. But eventually, he learned how to tickle my fancy and he has been pretty good at it. hahaha Wala lang… simple joys in marriage. 😀
Anyway, here is a video of One Direction with their very popular song, What Makes You Beautiful.
