It was a long day the day before. The 7 hour travel from Cagayan de Oro City to our little hometown in Agusan, San Francisco. Not much has changed since I last visited, but who cares. As Tony Bennett’s song says, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” We (the kids) stayed at my unc’s hotel for a few days.
This day, everyone arrived. My sister and brother arrived from Davao and Tito Jer and family with the addition of Tigger (adopted cousin) arrived from Cagayan. It was like a mini reunion, only tita min and family weren’t there. People stayed at Nanay’s living room — watched TV, played Wii at kung ano ano pa.

The people prepared dinner. I grilled the fish. We gathered outside the house. Kumain sila. I stayed watched TV kay “diet” nga raw ako. Mom suggested we buy ice cream. Luckily, meron nung Selecta Hershey’s series so we bought 3. Ang saya basta’t magkakasama ang BLEZA. Its always a party kasi sa sobrang dami namin plus ang lalaki na namin mga bata. After a hefty dinner plus mga usap usap, napagod din ang lahat. Nauna umalis sila Uncle Toto. Sumunod na kami sa hotel afterwards. Yung naiwan sa compound, naiwan. 🙂
