Part of that world

Ariel has become a part of my childhood.

I'm not talking about Ariel of 'Ariel and Maverick, not even Gelli de Belen's husband, Ariel Rivera.

Remember that flipping, quirky girl who once sang us to bed with her song, "Up where they walk, up where they run, up where they stay all day in the sun. Wondering free, wish I could be, part of that world,"?

Would you ever forget Flounder and Sebastian, her very loyal friends?

You got it right. She's Princess Ariel.

And just when I thought I could never do the flipping-under-the-sea moves, I was totally wrong.

My trip to Boracay paved way for a dream come true.

I may not have those fins.

Guess what?

I had helmets, instead.
