Looking Back

Here is a collection of the things I missed most in my childhood:

Sipping tsokolate
Feeding the pigeons
Eating rice with raw egg; or with milk & sugar; or with hot water and coffee
Bathing in the river
Riding in a basin and be carried by the river’s current
Walking barefeet
Running along the bridges of rice paddies
Playing with the neighborhood kids
Driving away sparrows
Waking up early for Simbang Gabi
Riding a cart
Riding on a carabao
Seeing falling stars at dawn
Selling veggies at the market
A snack of papaya and green mangoes
Climbing trees
Picking fruits
Horror stories
Stories of the Spanish, America & Japanese colonization
Being scold
Shopping for school supplies
Attending Flores de Mayo
Being a part of the Santacruzan
A lot more …
