And very happy to be!
I arrived in Roxas City very early morning kag, baw, maulanon gid ya. I’m not surprised my son wasn’t there at the airport to greet me – but he was jumping like a live pasayan (shrimp) when I arrived! While trying to put my baggage down, he was chattering away about 50kph – oh, what a joy! My son missed me as much as I missed him.
When I arrived at my parent’s house, the red bag that I asked from my sister is already there! Inside were a pair of swimming shorts and a cute top. Salamat gid sa donor!
I brought some stuffs that my younger sister Labs bought for the kids and they (kids, especially the girls) were squealing in delight. Man, paborito guid abi nila. It was nice to see them, including my son, bouncing and yapping happily. Tita Lab, thank you very much kuno sa imo pasalubong kag miss ka na kuno ni Bop kag ni Chappi.
Okay, now it’s back to the real world for me. But before I dive right into my real life right away, let me share you some pictures taken during the VSO Returned Volunteer Weekend in Lake Island.
It would have been more authentic if I had my hair braided again, just like what I did before coming home. Bonggang-bongga guid tani ako ya! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
I missed my Hippo batchmates but I know I’ll see them again in the future. I flew home with lots of great memories, new friends, and bubbling thoughts in my head. Should I consider volunteering for VSO Bahaginan again, but this time, nationally?
We’ll see… abangan ang susunod na kabanata.
