  1. oo na, oo na. di ko napigilan, naluha ako sa post na ‘to!
    such closeness is rare na sa family kasi… and i’m glad you have it. πŸ˜‰

    thanks for sharing this wento, kuya. πŸ™‚ inspiring sya for me, as a person. hehe πŸ™‚


  2. Just blog hopping. I’ve been living in Sydney for more than a year and I only call my mom on the weekends because I don’t want to get homesick but your post made me miss my mom.


  3. mayari – yup, that’s mi mama! πŸ˜‰

    glad this one inspired you, glads, as a person. hehe. there are no perfect families, but there surely are perfect family moments πŸ™‚

    hey, swipe – i live away from home too and i also just call my ma on weekends. but i guess the homesickness is more intense for you because u’re overseas. it’s alright to miss your ma; i’m sure she misses you, too, perhaps even more. call her on a week day? πŸ™‚


  4. Grabe, naano, tuloy ako, I mean, na senti…Moms are great–even greater for putting up with (and loving)us(adorable)misfits.

    NY resolution mo ba to blog more regularly? That’s great news, if ever! πŸ™‚


  5. gypsy – hmm, maybe a sub-conscious resolution (it sounds oymoronic, doesn’t it?) πŸ™‚

    hey jenny – thanks for dropping by. great singing at aldo and bubot’s wedding! *clap, clap*
