I’m back from my month-long vacation! Back to reality, ika nga, which includes being a Filipino during these said to be trying times.
Still, I would again like to take this opportunity to thank many relatives and friends in the US for giving me a most memorable month:
Tito Dennis, Tita Kit, JR, Kevin, and Katrina Sadang
Lolo Senyong, Lola Ditas, Titos JM, Guy, Louie Guzman and the whole family
Tita Marla Diokno, Tita Marissa and Melanie San Pedro, Tito Rommel and Tita Paula
Tito Joy Pascual
Tita Roni, Tito Dan, Risa (and Andrew) Festin
Gianina, JB, and my pamangkin, Adrian Chong
Sherwin and Shervy Villareal
Tita Letty and Tito Roy Pablo
Elmer, Jinky, Jep, and Excel Potes
Lolo Felix and Lola Tasing Alzona
Tita Mae and Tito Resty Tobias
Lolo Kikoy and Lola Venus Guzman
Amanda Fabie — for a fabulous time
My parents — for making the trip possible
And my Lola Entay, the reason I made the trip to begin with.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I am simply overwhelmed with all the kindness, love, and generosity you’ve all showered me with this past month. No words can accurately capture my eternal gratitude and thanks. What a humanizing experience being able to connect and reconnect with you. I pray that God would bless all of you a hundredfold.
I hope to make my next visit sooner than later, and hope to visit Canada next time.
