Last Oct. 25, 2008, we celebrated the annual school’s Family Day held at Wild Life Quezon City. The fair also coincided with the Veggie Week of Angel Presence. Naturally being a Pamilyang OFW we celebrated it without my husband for the second time. But nevertheless, I have to make it fun for my kids. That is the role of a wife to an OFW, making the situation normal inspite of the abnormal circumstances.
I was with Icko, Ishi and Rozell (his boyfriend), my ever-reliable housemate (angel for 6 years) and since my nephew Josh is Icko’s schoolmate I am also with my single parent sister Ate Yeng, with her kids Jill, Choi and Joshua.
Both Icko and Josh were assigned to be in eggplant costume. What I love about occasions like this is my Icko got to perform and I was ofcourse beaming with pride. Their section dance to the tune of High-School Musical Theme. Although my little boy is not a good dancer (just like his papa, parehas kaliwa ang paa), his effort is more than enough for me to feel proud.
One thing that I love with events like this is that I’ve got a chance to discover more about my kids. When Icko joined the sack race, his teachers were amazed because from among the kids he was able to reach the goal without stumbling down. My son is a potential athlete, and that I will surely hone in the future.
I just hope that on the next Family Day, Papa will already be here to celebrate it with us.

Tomorrow, almost all Filipinos will be heading to the cemetery to pay our respect to our departed beloved. It is a timeless tradition that Pinoys are celebrating from time immemorial. During this season, some of the houses will be left unattended and many will also be going home to their provinces. Please read below security advisory which was emailed to us by our company. I find it to be informative and useful, so here I am sharing it with you.
