After a grueling week from work or school finishing deadlines, we always look forward to the coming weekends. While others spends their weekends clubbing, night-out with friends, or travelling to new destinations or vacation hot-spots, some of us (including me) just love to spend their weekends lying on their bed, have a cup of coffee, read a book and to just lay-back and relax.
Here’s 10 local tunes perfect for those laidback and lazy weekends:
1. South Border – Kahit Kailan (James Ussher “Hanggang sa Huli” Bootleg)
