For You, Armando my friend!

The Time of Our Lives is the official FIFA World Cup 2006 song. It's sung by Toni Braxton & Il Divo, my favborite singers. I was in Berlin and other parts of Germany for about 2 weeks during this time; traveling for the summer rather than for football (which some of you in America choose to call it soccer ;p) since I'm not a fan of the sport. Coincidentally, when I booked my ticket some time ago, I didn't realise it was the World Cup season! Anyway, I was there at that moment & I missed my favorite singers!!! Oh well, that's one of my regrets in life, I suppose. I'm lucky, I still have other chances, but my friend Armando will never have that chance again! He passed away in a work accident in early June 2006 and another friend of his in Portugal wrote me on VirtualTourist.com to inform me of the sad news :( 

It was a devastating 2 weeks for me. It wasn't long ago that I met with Armando in Sintra, Portugal, after a year of saying hi over the internet on VirtualTourist.com. It was totally unexpected, the guy was only around early 40 or even less! It wasn't too long ago that he drove me around Portugal for 3-4 days showing me his country and his love or porcelain. We even discussed a meeting in China so that he can check out all his favorite pieces! Of course, we both didn't know then that it would be the first time as well as the last time we met! I wrote about Armando on Lunch.com before and some of you might remember him. He was the archaeologist I met in Portugal. He was also the only VT member who actually sent me to the airport on my day of departure even though he was living in Sintra and not Lisbon! The most hospitable online friend I've ever met in person! A great friend!

I was making a Christmas list consisting of Christmas songs by Il Divo just and this song by Il Divo reminded me of our time in Portugal. Hence, the inspiration for this review. 



There was a dream
Long time ago
There was a dream
Destined to grow

Hacerse pasion
Con fuego abrazar
El deseo de dar sin fin
El deseo de ganar

For a lifetime
Of heartbreaks
That brought us here today
We will go all the way

And, it feels like we're having
The time of our lives
Let's light the fire, find the flame
Let's come together as one in the same
'Cause it feels like we're having
The time of our lives
We'll find the glory in the game
All that we are, for all that we are
For the time of our lives

Hoy es el dia
Es la pasion de triunfar
Para hacer realidad el destino
que soñabamos conseguir
Una vida de lucha nos trajo hasta aqui
Y llegare hasta el final (Heaven knows...)

'Cause it feels like we're
having the time of our lives
Juntos, unidos, triunfara nuestro
deseo de ser el major
'Cause it feels like we're
having the time of our lives
Hasta la gloria, junto a ti,
La hora llego de la verdad
El momento llego

Y ya nunca jamas lo podre olvidar...

'Cause it feels like we're
having ('cause it feels...like
we're having...)
The time of our lives
Juntos, unidos, triunfara
(juntos, unidos, triunfara...)
Nuestro deseo de ser el mejor
'Cause it feels like we're
having ('cause it feels...like
we're having...)
The time of our lives
Hasta la gloria, junto a ti,
El momento llego
El momento llego (Oh!...)

We'll find the glory (Find the glory...)
In the end (In the end...)
For all that we are
For everything that we wanna
be and all that we are
For the time of our lives
For the time of our lives...
Oh...



The song may have been written for a sports competition. The game would be that of life. 
Well, the life of my friend Armando may have been short but it was one of greatness. 
We will always remember you, Armando! We miss you even though you've be gone for 4 1/2 years!
Merry Christmas to you, my friend! A part of you will always be here with us!
For You, Armando my friend! For You, Armando my friend! For You, Armando my friend! For You, Armando my friend!
