My mom tried her very best to get out of the living room of our house. It was the first day that we had a color TV and  it was my first time to see color on a boobtube. I was so mesmerized by the colors and vibrance that my mom had to carry the small chair I was seated on to the dining room so I could finally have dinner. I was seven years old.

It was just a small, boxy TV. But that Sharp TV was my bestfriend when I was a kid. It was the first TV we had. Before this, I had been watching shows on the black-and-white TV at my lolo’s house and I was thrilled that I won’t have to cross over to the neighbor’s just to see my favorite cartoon show. That day, I watched everything — everything — even the cheesy soap commercials because I was so magnetized by the moving colors.

Growing up in Batangas, I had always been in love with the beach. Though the shores of our side of Batangas are strewn with black volcanic sand, they still provide a fantastic place to relax and swim. But because of the black sand, the water looks gray and murky even when it’s not. When I was a kid, it was my one and only concept of the beach. I thought all beaches in the world had black sand with coconut trees rising from them.

It was smashed by our small Sharp TV. I remember the first time I saw a photo of a white beach in full color on TV, how I was blown away by it, and how it triggered my initial desire to travel.  I still love the beaches in our little barangay (I love all beaches!) but since then, I had been hopping from one gorgeous beach to another. All it took was one image of Boracay and it somehow paved way for who I am today.
