Mga Pagdiriwang

Ika-19 ng Hunyo. Una, Maligayang Bati kay Pepe. Sa natatanging Filipinong manunulat, iskultor, pintor, iskrimador, duktor, laboy, bentrelokwist, chickboy, at kung anu-ano pa (‘yan lang ang mga katangian/kakayahan ni Pepe ang tumatak sa akin sa pag-aaral ng Rizal). Sa ating super hero, Happy Birthday!

Isang araw bago ang kay Pepe, siya namang araw ng kapanganakan ng aking nanay. Ika-18 ng Hunyo, isinilang si Rizalina Adriano. Obyusli, isinunod ang pangalan niya kay Rizal. Happy Birthday muli, nanay!

Ika-19 din ng Hunyo, pinagdiriwang [ng ilan] ang Araw ng mga Tatay. Kaya, isang pagbati para sa aking tatay, Rafael Buenaventura.

Father’s and Arbor Day!

My first post!

elriz:

It was Father’s Day, June 20, 2010. I woke up a bit late since it was a Sunday. I thought that I’d have [free] time to watch TV and clean my aquarium, too.

But then my father told me to get ready and we’ll be planting trees! What?! I didn’t know what to think –I wanted to rest my body from the previous week’s [hard] work.

And I thought again. ‘It’s Father’s Day and this is a good chance to have some bonding moment with my tatay.’

He borrowed a pickup 4wd (not so brand new) from his old friend to carry the seedlings onto the land where we’ll be planting them. And so we took off, carrying not less than 10 calamansi seedlings and about 8 mango ones.


I’ve always been excited to go back to this piece of land in the more rural part of our town — green fields, tributaries and rivers, farm animals, and, oh, fresh air!
