Sunday is Family Day

After a week of staying inside the house and after cleaning my room, I treated myself with some touring. Not out of town though. Since it was my uncle’s birthday, my mom’s side of family decided to have a get together, the original plan was an overnight swimming but due to the unpredictable weather, we had our lunch in my Lola’s house. Remember my baby pic with her? My brother and I were not really decided if we will come, I openly tell you, we are not in good terms with that side of family. But since it’s for our Lola, we decided to go and pay a visit.

When we arrive there, you can feel the pressure. Actually my brother is the one who has real issues with them, bias of me and for sure if you are in my shoes, you will feel the same. After some hypocritical picture taking, fake smiles and maybe some fake chewing, my brother and I thought of coming with our dad to visit the farm.

Riding our owner type jeepney really brings back some memory to me. Nostalgic of my childhood when we were test driving it then after a year or so my parents accidentally forgot me in a store because they thought I was at the back of the jeepney. Going back to the farm does the same for me. I remember falling from a “pilapil” and half of my body was soaked in mud! We also have some picnics there.

After 10 minutes, nasa farm na kami. Dati palay at pakwan lang tinatanim namin alternately. But last 2 years, naisipan ng tatay ko na magtanim ng ibang variety like kamatis, sitaw at saging. Pero this year mas naging oks when we planted papaya. Yep! It’s been 8 months na rin since we started papaya business. Click naman sya. Pero what I really enjoyed today is to be away from everything. Wala masyado iniisip. I Took a nap under a tree. I even brought a book with me. Good thing the weather today is ok, warm pero breezy. Hay… sarap talaga!






But we have to cut that trip short. Medyo madilim na rin kasi, and we have to visit another lola. Mas nagenjoy ako sa mga cousins ko on my dad’s side when we visited them. Simple, no pretentions, no fakers, and when I see them alam ko na mageenjoy ako.

After today's tour, I took a warm shower. I stayed longer in the there (wala ko ginawa ha!lol) and had my reflection. Why I kept comparing my relatives on both sides. Why things bother me, why i kept thinking of her. I had a reflection of my week, My-so-unproductive week. And after a day of clearing my thoughts, sadly I ended up filling it up again.
