Home home after 5 years and man, a lot has changed. Fermi nga napprogresso gapa ngana y Tuguegarao. I am both nostalgic and taking in all the new sights. And of course, let’s not forget the HEAT. I am close to melting as I type this entry. Golpe fatu na alle matenak.
I haven’t been home (as in Tugue home) in a long while and seeing how much things have changed makes me all the more home sick. Bigla kong maiisip kumain ng cauliflower pops and the unbeatable gulaman sa Cafe Michelle/Hotel Roma then after, maglakad lakad sa Calle Commercio until I get to security bank na parkingan ng Caggay. I smile at the thought but then also remind myself na surely, a lot of things would have changed in 5 years.
Tequila, soju and a thousand-piece puzzle with karaoke on the side was just the most chill way to welcome you, 22.
May this year bring all of us the things, people and opportunities we have all been praying and longing for. ❤️
