Ba-Bye Ate

Today was quite a sad day for our family. For a very close-knit family, goodbyes are really extra difficult to say . Especially if the one leaving will be miles and seas away.


My Ate (with her husband) left this morning for the US. They'll be starting their new life there. She already has work so I don't need to worry about that anyway, and I'm sure that she'll definitely do well. My parents were really sad... maybe it's the thought of being "away" from her. Tipong you have to hop on a plane pa just to be able to get to her. The whole family has US visa naman, we can go there anytime (as long as we have the money I guess :p)

Yes, I cried a lot as well... and I guess it's because of all the bilins I got from her. The one that stuck the most "Ikaw na bahala dito ha.. Alagaan mo sila Mama and Papa. Si Ivan ha... Wag mo silang pabayaan." My nephew on the other hand was a different story... he was eager to go home already when we got to NAIA. Haha! We were asking him if he'll cry when his mom and dad leaves, his reply was "No." He knows that he'll be following next summer. :)

I guess we'll all arrive on this crossroad soon? That certain phase wherein we need to start our own lives elsewhere and follow our own paths.

Keep safe Ate and Odj! Take care of each other. See you next year.. US Open season. :D

i had exactly the same sentiments when my sis left for US, mas nalungkot ako sa thought na mawawala pamangkin ko ...really sad, naiyak rin ako, but ganon talaga, soon you'll just accept that they found their happy nest :) that was 7 years ago, so now everything seems normal. hehe.

Isipin mo nalang na makakavisit ka palagi sa US. Travel is always good. Your sister looks just like you or you look like your sister. Hehe. I know she'll do fantastic. Take care!
