I’ve been to Pampanga several times already. Whenever we visit our relatives, school stuff, etc. These past few months, I dunno what’s with me but I’m loving the feeling of traveling all the way from Manila to Pampanga alone. The one and a half hour bus ride with my earphones and stuff, the sun that strikes me cos I dun want to close the curtains as I wanna take a look at the province inspired view outside, unknown seatmates that I’ve got to give a little shy smile, that innocence and strange feeling and the excitement and jitters every time I realize I’m going to see his ‘awesome’ family again. And, when I say awesome I mean literally.
So yeah. Yesterday I was in Pampanga the whole day, with him and his fam. It was definitely a well spent Sunday and a total great week starter. I never thought of myself traveling that far alone. Well, that’s just one of the few things that he taught me in this relationship. Sometimes, I gotta try to do things on my own. Actually, it was the second time that I visited them. The first time was in December, it was a late celebration for his birthday. I’m not going to elaborate what happened that day nor yesterday as that’ll be kept privately within me. Let me just share the feeling I always get whenever I am there, with them.
His family is great. They are one of a heck of life and tell-me-what-your-problem-is advisers and encouragers. That’s one of the best things that I have discovered. They are straight-forward people (Now I know why, B. 😉). They are very welcoming, they always make me feel at home. They’re all nice and yeah kinda loud but in a good way. Because whenever they talk, they always make sure that it matters and you get something from it. Sooooo him, as well. They eat with their bare hands and I do love and enjoy it. Cos at home, we do it with spoon and fork unless we eat tuyo, gg and other dry foods. Also, they love eating soooo much! Well, I never doubted that because knowing Earnest, totally a big eater! ‘Ika nga nila, “mana-mana lang yan.” Hihi. Going back, they never ran out of things to say, stories to tell and laugh about. I can feel that care they have towards each other. I can feel their love for each other vibrating around that home. Those genuine smiles in their eyes that shoot you straight to your heart, simply amazing. I don’t know if I am overdoing it but ‘happiness’ in that home is an understatement. Really.
I am so much in love with him and the time that I fin’lly met his family and know them little by little, oh god, I’m falling helplessly and I don’t want to be catched cos I am admiring every little things about him.
Dati, Iloilo at Bicol lang ang probinsya ko. Nagyon, Pampanga is starting to be one of them and the feeling is totally amazing 💕PS. I love his fam. *shy smile* And, it feels sooo good to write again. ☺️
