Struggles anyone? I have a lot, writing is not my strong skill but I have a lot of things to share but the thing is, I don't know how.

I'm just going to try to do an article within 15-mins. Just type or post whatever comes into my mind. Let's try it out.

Let me share my gorgeous and lovely sponsors! Read their articles too!

Malapit na matapos ang October, we are now on the 11th month of the year and Covic-19 pandemic still exists.

I am rushing this post habang nakay pudra pa si little b. By the way, pudra and 2 of his siblings went to the cemetery today.

2021

Actually, the other day nagpunta din sya sementeryo para asikasuhin ung puntod ng mga kamaganak namin. May apartment na sila dun kasi hahahaha. Doon nakalibing ang parents nila, lolo't lola, kapatid, ilang mga pinsan at tito na naunang yumao. They actually have a joke because there seems to be a pattern kung sino yung mga nauna na nailibing doon. (I'll publish this later as I need to search for pictures din hihi). Karamihan ng nauna nang nanirahan sa apartment sa libingan is yung mga may birthday ng Sept and july???? So every year na nagpupunta doon eh nagkakalokohan na kung sino kaya ang susunod na mangungupahan. Take note, my father and his siblings mismo ang nagbibiruan ah but kidding aside kabado na sila. Charot.

I blurred out the names kasi baka mamaya biglang mabuhay ang pangalan nila sa botohan hahahaha

There was one time na nakaisip na naman ng kalokohan si pudra. I forgot what year was that but may pinauso sya. He got a marken or a pen and then wrote his name on one side of the wall sa apartment (puntod) , we followed with matching doodles or eklat eklat pa. Then it became an attendance wall.

We used to go there almost at the same time nung maliliit pa kami but as we got older may mga trabaho na and iba ibang schedules na, nakakapunta pa din naman but di na kami sabay sabay magkakaanak. So whenever may mauna na doon, make sure to bring a marker or pen so they can write their names on the attendance wall and we would know na nagpunta na sila.

2015

Going back to today.... Since last year and pandemic, no mass gatherings allowed so the gov't didn't allow or they closed public places na pwedeng maggathering and this includes November 1 and 2, All Saint's Day and All Souls Day. That's why pudra and his siblings decided to go there as early as today to visit them, since last year hindi nila nagawa.

One thing na nakakatuwa pa is kilala na din sila ng tindahan sa tabi ng apartment kaya minsan chinichika sila and I think he or my cousin noticed na napinturahan na ung apartment, ayun pala yung nagbabantay na taga doon eh sya na din ang nagpintura. Kahit di na kami nakapunta, may nagalala pa din na magpintura kahit papaano.

CLOSING

Mga pipz, if you have the chance to visit or at least call or video call your loved ones, just do it. Nakakalungkot minsan isipin na madalas ang lamay ng namatay yun pa yung nagsisilbing reunion. Hindi man maiiwasan pero maganda na technology ngayon, mangamusta tayo kahit papano. Hindi yung mangangamusta kapag may kelangan or mangungutang lang CHAAAAAR!

Time's up!

Ended 8:39pm nadelete ko ss ng time bwiset hahaha

Nakakatuwa din tlaga tayong mga pinoy. Alam mo yung kahit may lungkot na naalala natin ang mga yumao nating kamag anak, nagagawa pa din makaoagsingit ng jokes diba..
