I have been reading about #sentisabado and my curiosity is on its peak again.
So what is #sentisabado?
Here's som excerpt from tonyocruz.com:
Now, we have #sentisabado, a distinctly Filipino and hopefully soon-to-be “regular” Twitter event which started on August 28 and reached fever pitch on September 4. It helped that Filipinos, including netizens, had been pining for the positive in the aftermath of the August 23 hostage crisis and how our government responded to it. Perhaps last Aug. 28 and Sept. 4, we could not find anything more positive than looking back to when we were kids and enjoying the memories of years past.
Call it anything – a respite, a momentary escape. But whether #sentisabado would lull netizens into forgeting about what we must do with the ugly present are sorely mistaken. If we proved anything, what tweeps did last Aug. 28 and Sept. 4 was that we could unite online and have a long and fresh memory of the past.
At the core of it, #sentisabado is a collective exercise of remembering. In remembering, we try not to forget. In trying not to forget, we share a collective memory and we prep ourselves to act so the best of the past, the best of now, and what we intend to make the best of the future, would come together — and ultimately make #sentisabado as fun 10, 20 or 30 years from now.
