Walt Disney films became an integral part of my growing up years. Since I do not watch TV during school days (except for the daily news), watching films during weekends was like a sweet reward for me after doing my best in school for a week. VHS pa ang uso nun and DVD is quite unheard of. Whenever my balikbayan Uncles and Aunts would come for a visit and ask me what I want for pasalubong, I always say, “Disney films and the like”. From Chitty-chitty bang-bang, Thumbelina, Snow White to Cinderella, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast… I repeatedly watched those films until I memorized the songs in it – sometimes even the script.
