First of all,I would like to thank God for letting all these happen.For letting us take nanay home for her funeral without any problems and for our safe trip back home.we arrived yesterday afternoon from a very long and tiring trip,but I have enough strength to say a few words about my trip in the Phil.
My dear ones,mere words are not enough to express how grateful I am and my whole family for all the acts of love,all the prayers,emotional and financial support that you have given us during our most trying times. All these will never be forgotten,it will only add up to the things that are already engraved in my heart.
My trip to the Phil.was so sad but at the same time happy.Sad because we have to say goodbye to nanay but happy because of the pouring of love and support from all our families and friends especially you,my classmates.We were happy also because we were able to fulfll her most cherish wish to be burried with the rest of our loved ones.
I just want everybody who have gone to the wake to know that your presence helped me a great deal to go through this most difficult time.But I'm also thankful to those who were unable to be there but kept us in their hearts.
After the funeral we were able to go places because my 2 sister in laws and my 2 nephews have never in the places that we explored which even me and my 2 brothers have never been before.That's the reason why I got so dark.most of the places we went to were mostly beaches and it was so hot during those days.It only rained during the last night of the wake,during our meeting last Sept. 5 and more than a week before we left. In fact it was raining hard on our way to the airport.I thought we won't be able to make it on time ,plus the traffic was so bad.
Some of the places we visited are; Mt.Samat,Corrigedor,Morning Breeze Resort in Bagac where we saw the place where they made Zorro,Hundred Islands,Villa amanda,The Raven,The Aeta community,La Vista,Morong,A beach in Subic,the bat kingdom,duty free in Olongapo,Fort Santiago,SM in north edsa and the one in Clark.We also ate breakfast at the isdaan in Tarlac on our way to The Hundred Islands.We also went to Julie's nephew's mango plantation,close to the beach in Puting buhangin.One thing that was very challenging was when we slept overnight at the breakwater in Pulong bato amidst the big thunders and lightning.We we're gonna go fishing but unluckily did't catch any.So,my cousin just asked for some fish that some fishermen caught which we cooked on top of the giant rocks.We brought firewoods,rice and pots thinking that we will be able to catch some fish.It was 630 in the morning when we woke up and luckily it didn't rain.It was a very exciting experience.One of the boats almost went upside down,bec. it had no motor and my two cousins were screaming with their lungs out in the middle of the night.Some of the folks who were already asleep wokeup wondering what those crazy people were doing in the middle of the night in the ocean.
It will take me a while to write all my experiences on my recent trip but it is too long already.I'll try to send some of the thousands of pix that I took,don't worry i'll only send a few.I don't want you to get tired of my face,I'll save some for our reunion.
I was chatting with Ernie a while ago but I got disconnected,that's why I know Pilar and Lourdes are with him,what a nice mini reunion in Canada.
I'm already missing you guys back home,thank you for everything,all the pasalubong and most of all for making me happy.Take care everyone and I'll be seeing you,soon.
All my love,
Did You Vote for this Man as your POTUS?
