PEOPLE: Hi Mama – kwento natin ito oh! =)


November 30, 1981 - tandang tanda ko p lahat ng sinasabi nila, and theyre all telling the same story, bumabagyo nun nung pinanganak ako sa lumang bahay sa ---
 
Ate is keep on teasing me when we were kids kasi saming 3 nila Happie, aq lng ang hindi nakaexperience ng delivery room. pero ok lng kasi bawing bawi naman when you gave me the most beautiful name, Bonita :) Pero you left to oman when i was still a baby. You work there to take care of 3 kids. i didn’t understand your words back then but i can feel them. theyre like "bonet anak, be a good girl while mama is away. she needs to work para sa future mo".. and then you're gone. 
 

While you’re away, all titas, tito and cousins took care of me. saka parang hindi k nman din malayo, kasi you have so many kwentos. remember, kinikwentuhan mo ako through ---
at ang mga makasaysayang
 
at ang cassette player, talaga nmang linis to death nila tita zen at tita jen kasi kapag madumi, kasi kapag madumi. kakainin ang ribbon, wala na ang kwento, wala nang use kundi ipaikot sa wire ng poste sa kalsada :) and you have so many pictures na lagging pinapakita nila mamang at papang. Pero aq wala aqng maxadong kwento that time, sabi kasi nila tita Irene
4y/o n aq, pero ang alam ko lang sabihin, “aye”, pag gutom, iiyak, pag antok, matutulog na lang bigla. Sa sobrang good girl na gusto kong iproject, hindi n ako nagsasalita (less talk less mistake!) Parang autistic in short hahaah!

And then you came back when I was already ---
 
(nagsasalita na aq nyan syempre heheh!). Nahihiya pa nga ako nun kasi English speaking ka. pero eventually nasanay na din tyo with each other. Nasanay kn din sa kakulitan at kasutilan ko. remember nagalit ka saken kasi ang kulit kulit ko na ipabili ung black canvass shoes na semi hi-cut tapos may paint na iba ibang kulay sa Gift Box sa Melencio? 250.00Php un eh (Mahal pa un nun) pero binili mo pa din. Then nung binilhan mo ako ng Hotdog na unan ---
 
(di ko pa alam that na bolster pala ang tawag sa ganon), nagalit ka kasi sa kagustuhan kong hindi madumihan, natulog akong nakabalot pa ng plastic (ang ingay, hahah!), pero tinabihan mo pa din ako sa bed. During that time, Ate was already on her 5th grade, and she won Ms. Intrams 1st Runner Up, just like you when you were young. Diba Miss Rizal 1st Princess ka? =) she made you proud kaya sabi ko “aba dapat ako din, para mas maging proud si Mama.” Kaya when I graduated, I can still recall your face when I delivered my salutatory address, just like you when you graduated from Grade School. Of course, you know who my friends are.
Then I went to ---
nagkaroon ng barkada, ng true friends, crushes, nainlove, nabasted, (heheheh!), nainlove uli, tapos nabasted uli (haha, history repeats itself talaga). You’re always there for me. Ikaw nga ang Tita Ed nila---
Shads, Neil, Beth. Just before our graduation, you told me you want to have an
 in our family. Accountancy ka, accountancy si Papa, accountancy si Ate (and accountancy din ung bunso kong kapatid). Hmm okay. Kahit sa isip ko, “hindi naman ako magaling sa Math, bakit ako ang gustong mag engineering?!”
 
Sa university, I meet more friends there, na naging kaibigan mo na din. Everytime na pupunta sila sa bahay, iniisa isa mo sila lagi kung kumpleto – si Sandro, Chanet, Aubrey, Rene, Melvin, Jec, Jensen, Kelvin, Ck, Patrick, Von, Jonah, Vtec, Rommel, Philip, Adrian, Norwin, Rhea, Icar, Aileen. Ang dami dami, pero you all welcome them sa munting bahay natin. At nadagdagan pa nung nagmajor na ako – jhen, Cele, Henry, Weng, Laraine. Gavino, Jacky. You even welcome my brods (GSP) and sisses (LSP). At kahit kung san san ako pumupunta, at kung anu anung organizations/clubs/sororities ang sinasalihan ko,
 you never lose your trust. Ang importante, walang bagsak at hindi magsa summer. :D

Many years had passed.
Gumraduate ako, tumambay ako, nag OJT ako, nagboard exam ako, tapos tumambay uli ako (puro pala aq tambay). I remember your voice when I called you and say “Ma my engineer ka ng anak!”
nun lng kita nadinig na umiyak, kasi ikaw ung mama na lagging nakasmile, lagging Masaya, lagging may gay linggo, “hindi nawawalan ng pera, lagi lang nakapatago”, laging colorful ang life. Ikaw ung lagging may positive na sagot na “ay yes naman!” Ikaw nga lng yata ang 60y/o n nakita kong walang wrinkles without any help from ---

Kahit siguro anung itanong mo sa mom mo about you when you were a baby, kaya nilang sagutin. And now, I am trying my best to do the same thing. For me, my mom is the real superwoman ---
Our age today is not the exact years of our existence. Always add 9 more months sa panahong nasa ---
Kaya sa lahat ng sakripisya nila sa atin, walang makakapantay doon.

So for my mom - Motherdear, barkada, friendship, mudra, Mama nila at Mama ng Bayan, lahat lahat na – kahit siguro saan aq makarating, hinding hindi ko pa din mararating ang mga bagay na binigay mo sa amin. 
Happy Mother’s Day Mama, Sobrang Love ka namin! <3
