Manila, Here I Come

This is it!
All my bags are packed and neatly stacked in the garage.
Have my passport and ticket in one hand. 
I have never ever been this ready to go on a holiday.

The 7,107 islands of the Philippines awaits me.
And I can’t wait to see the wonder there is, in that beautiful city.
I am beyond excited, my happiness shows.
I am finally coming HOME!

 Would You Believe...

Litratong Pinoy #24: Pilak

 

Subalit may hihigit pa sa mga ginto at pilak
Higit pa ang kaningningan kaysa busilak na perlas
Ito’y wikang bukambibig ng pusong nagpapahayag
Ng ating damdaming tapat sa diwa ng pangungusap
Pakikipagtalastasan ay ganap na maliwanag
Dahil sa sariling wika ang lahi’y ganap nang likas.

Litratong Pinoy #21: Mithi

Minsan noong aking kabataan,

Hiningi ko kay Lola ang isang palamuti,

Isang diamanteng krus na noon pa’y minimithi,

Ngunit sabi nya’y, “tsaka na at bata ka pa.”

 

At noong aking ika-30 kaarawan,

Sa isang pulang sisidlan,

Aking nasilayan ang palamuting ninanais.

At ngayo’y nakasabit na sya sa aking leeg.

 

Maraming salamat po, Lola!
