My last entry was so emotionally infused that I felt the need to think of happy thoughts. And here’s a couple of “stuff” that happened within the last 12 hours:
Ate Noemi’s (my cousin from my mom’s side of the family) text message saying that she’ll be arriving from the Philippines on April 25 to stay with us. I was so happy when I got her message. At the same time I felt sad for her. She’s going to move here permanently leaving her family, friends, and boyfriend behind. I still remember how painful it was saying goodbye to people you made a life with. Coming over there for a visit and then having to say goodbye again does not even ease the pain of doing it over again. It’s equally painful. But I can’t help but feel excited about it! I like her and she’s really nice. That’s 2 down (the other one being Ate Ella — my mom’s niece from another sister) and 5 thousand to go — my mom’s family is HUGE you won’t believe it. Lol
We now have The Filipino Channel (TFC) and GMA Pinoy TV. Although I think my Lola and my Aunt are happier because they no longer have to record my Dad’s favourite shows for him everyday (since the day they got their TFC). Now, I have “competition” on the big screen TV all the time (my parents had the guy install it on the TV in their bedroom and the TV on the basement). Why is this a happy thought again? Oh, it’s coz they’re happy so I’m happy too. I don’t really watch TFC shows, but I just might now that we have it.
