In Lipa, there is a tradition called tuklungan. This happens every May. It is like the usual May flower offering to Mama Mary. But instead of holding the rosary prayers in a church/chapel, one barangay/street would build up a small hall and people would put an altar with the crucifix and Mama Mary's image. The usual tuklungan would start at around 6 or 7. There will be the praying of the rosary and after that flowers would be offered. After that, there would be a mini program. Usually, children would sing and dance. The hermana/sponsor would sometimes brought entertainers. Before the program would end, the sponsor would give people something to eat.

Tomorrow, my family will sponsor the tuklungan. And tomorrow is also my father's 62nd birthday. What would he be like if he were still around?

Our House

Late in the morning, I woke up to find my brother, Kristel and Bitoy at the living room discussing about the basketball game for kids (3 on 3). I just had a long sleep. I deserved it because I was not able to get at least 7 hours of sleep for the last two days. I bribed my brother to cook luncheon meat for me. In turn I would give him some bucks. He gave in. Later, Bitoy, Kristel, and my bro joined me in eating breakfast. After that, we watched Cinema One. The movie being shown was Isusumbong Kita sa Tatay Ko and we were making fun of the movie but at the same time watching it intently. I was jologs all the way but they were, well, they're jologs at heart. After that, it was lunchtime and my bro talked me into ordering lomi for lunch. After that I decided to take a bath. Everyone took a bath one at a time though. By the time I got out of the house, everyone has left already to their respective missions for the day.

Sometimes, it's good to be home.
