Today is my parents’ 37th wedding anniversary. My mom is perpetually, notoriously late at everything. I always heard her tell people “I am on my way” when in fact she was just on the way to the bathroom to take a bath, and it takes her an hour to get dressed too. My dad says in all their years together, my mom was only early twice: on their wedding day …and to heaven.

My dad has some sense of humor. We miss you Ma. Wherever you are now, there is no more pain… We love you.

I always forego writing anything, for lack of time. I am so busy. I am exhausted most of the time. I am always running after time and I barely have a moment to catch my breath. Today, I will take a moment â€“ just once in the freneticity of my days, to write down, after six months, pieces of my thoughts.
Two days ago, I came up the overpass to cross to where my village is, and looked up to see a glorious sunset. Much like my sunsets of old, my sunsets in El Nido – though less spectacular, glorious nonetheless. It was not as red, nor as pink, nor as deeply hued. I could not see the purples, violets, or fuchsias. It was a patch of colors in a sea of galvanized iron sheets.

Last Saturday was a hectic day for me. I was up late doing last minute preparations for the bazaar that day and was up early to go to Rockwell Tent to set up. The Global Pinoy Bazaar started at 10am and we were there as early as 7:30am to do the set-up. Then it was also my turn to man the booth until 3pm.
Sarah’s wedding was scheduled at 4pm and there was no way I was going to make it to the church with my schedule. I was actually home taking a nap at 4pm. We made it to the reception though and it was just us oldies (yes, I like to call me and my friends oldies, at least when it comes to U.P. Rep, since we hang out a lot with the younger ones).
Here are a few pictures of us at our little photo shoot at the Wack-wack Country Club lobby.
