21

Summer is almost here.  Bakasyon na si anakis.  I just picked her up sa Philadelphia yesterday.  I can’t believe she’ll be senior next year.  Syet, tumatanda na talaga ako.

Habang papauwi na kami she was telling me stories about her school and friends.  It must been the driving or something, pero minsan meron siyang mga sinasabi na hindi ko marinig.  At syempre, my reaction is “huh?”, “what?”.  At eto namang si anakis uulitin nga yung sinabi pero may karag-dagan pang “LOLA” sa huli.  Syet, para na nga ba akong si Inang?

I had to say something… “Anak, I think I’m normal. In my generation hearing loss starts at 40’s.  And according to studies, your generation will start to experience hearing loss in your 30’s.  Thats because of the invention of I-pods. That’s why be careful with those I-pods.” At syempre palibhasa unica hija si anakis at wala mapasahan ng sermon, ang sagot nya eh dapat daw pagsabihan ko yung mga pinsan nya.  Nandamay pa ng pinsan.

She keeps telling me that she could’nt wait to turn 21 and I kept telling her not to rush it. She can’t wait to go to the bars, the casinos, etcetera.

Bigla akong nag-isip and I told her, “Anak, I think we’re on the stage that we both think exactly the same.  We are on the stalemate part of our lives.”  Si anak naman ang napa-“what?”.   Yes, I wish I’m 21 and you wish you’re 21 too. Natawa na lang si anakis.

Summer is almost here.  Bakasyon na si Anakis.  I  just picked her from Philadelphia yesterday.  I can’t believe she’ll be senior next year. 

Syet, saang kamay na naman kaya ng Maykapal ako kukuha ng pang tuition?

Welcome Home, Anakis!

And for viewers like you, isang maikling palabas from my anakis.

It’s Mother’s Day . In corporate America these has always been a big bussiness opportunity for the flower shops, the card shops and not to mention the restaurants.  Sa restaurant palang eh , you’ll be lucky if you’ll get seated on the same day without reservation.  Even food chains like Mac Do or Burger King siguradong kadaming tao.

For many years now, we always end up with barbeque at my Inang’s House.  We always tried to cook food for her but so far, we haven’t had any success.  Medyo may katigasan ang ulo ni Inang.  She will always do what she wants to do and she’s beeing doing it extra-ordinarily.  And that, is being “A Mother”.

What really is mother’s Day? When is Mother’s Day?  When was the first Mothers Day celebrated?  Well, isa lang ang ma-isa sagot ko – eh di I-Google mo!

There are still answers that I’ve been searching for regarding Mothers Day, that is, when do we really call mother  “The Mother”:

Does the term “Nine Months “ really entitle you to be called “The Mother”?

Does the term “The Mother” end its term after “Nine Months”?

Whatever happened to the term “from womb to tomb” ?

Sino nga ba ang mas may karapatang sa titile na “the mother”?  Siya ba na nagsilang ng sangol ngunit sa pag-ibig ay butata o siya ba na di pinalad na mag-luwal subalit sagana naman sa pag-aaruga?

Ano nga kaya ang tunay na kahulugan ng ” INA”

What realy is the operational meaning of the term “the mother”?

Ina, kailan ka nga ba dapat tawaging ina… o dapat nga ba?

Happy Mother’s Day sa lahat ng karapat dapat!

Kadarating ko palang sa trabaho ay uwing-uwi na ako. Sabado at walang pasok ang mahal ko, eto ako na ina-antok antok sa trabaho. Di man lang maka-idlip at baka mahuling nakapikit.

Sa bintana panay ang silip, umaasa sa liwanag na sasapit.

Malayo pa ang umaga…isang sakay pa!
