It’s Thursday-almost-Friday now, September 16th TwentyTen. I was like thinking if I’m missing someone’s birthday or what!? I know there is something about this day, I just can’t remember what the hell it is. I even went over my calendar to check whose birthday, anniversary, yah-dee-yah-dee-yahs is it but, Heck! I can’t find nothing till it popped out in my mind that yes there’s really something about September 16.
It was in 2008 of the said date when I left my country to start a new chapter in my life, away from my “ALMOST PERFECT LIFE” in the Philippines — perfect like being surrounded by the people I never imagined living without. An awesomely wonderful Mum and Dad and Best Brother Friend and one & only BooBooLoveyHuby plus sweet cuddly poochies. My super great relatives, my gorgeous girl friends, awesome dude friends and even loved enemy-friends. A lot of good places that i truly miss most likely our small town San Roque where I grew up and has become a witness to my progression from womb and God willing — ’till tomb.
Looking back, it was a weeping night for each and all who brought me to the airport. As I recall them saying “Have a safe flight! Good luck! God Bless! We’ll miss you! I love you and ’Till we meet again” it still cuts like a knife! That entire 24 hours all in all flight from Manila to Newark was by far a melancholy.
I explored a quarter of a century in the Philippines and I’m still looking forward to spending the rest of my life growing old and reminiscing where my heart truly is………. =)
