The Eight of May

For the past two months Manila, Philippines had been into warm weather. I am a bit alarmed. I know with this kind of warm summer weather we will get lots of rains on rainy months.

Last Sunday the 8th of May being Mothers Day, my niece and I decided to visit my parents at the memorial park they were laid to rest. The sun was not shining brightly. I told my niece she got lucky, the weather had been cooperative with her. We bought our folding umbrellas to shield ourselves from sun. Being the most awaited day of fight for our boxing icon Manny Pacquiao versus Sugar Shane Mosley, there were not too many people at the memorial park. I guess family members decided to visit a day before. Philippines, is twelve hours ahead of time of the most states in the U.S. The boxing bout was in Las Vegas Nevada. I thought, I could watch the boxing delayed telecast. Mothers Day is more important.

It was almost lunch when we left the memorial park. My niece and I decided to have our lunch inside a shopping mall in Ortigas Center. After we had lunch, we went to the grocery of the same shopping mall for our groceries for the week. We had fun inside the grocery store choosing and deciding what items to buy making sure the budget will suffice. It was a bit raining when we went out of the shopping mall. The folding umbrellas were in handy. We were lucky the rain did not get us. Soon as we were inside the house, the rain poured mercilessly. It was all white when I peeked from the terrace.

My sister sent text message to my cell phone she got uneasy of the rain and the wind. The Bicol provinces where my sister and her husband lives, is signal number two. Their daughter and I were safely home taking a cup of tea. I did not pay much attention of the rain until I turned the TV on. Manila was on typhoon signal number one. Some provincial areas were the typhoon visited lost love ones due to landslide. How sad is it to lose a mother on Mothers Day? No one could ever imagine the very day they would have to greet their beloved mother on Mothers Day, is the day they would say goodbye to one of the most important persons in their lives.

To those who missed to greet their mother on their special day for some reasons. Life goes on, no matter what happens. For those who were able to hug and kiss their mothers on that day. Had you thanked your mother and count your blessings? Your mother made the best out of you.

Pacuiao won again.... Mabuhay!

Yes, life must go on and in fact everyday should bemother's day anyway. Although this special day in May is to honor each one's mom it should not prevent us from doing it like on a daily basis...

Its important we remember our loved ones. As you know Manny is one of my favourite sportsmen, not only for his boxing skills but also his great personality and humour. There's a funny video of him on youtube doing a scottish accent its hilarious. Take care JP.

The heat is really incinirating and i could imagine what it was like 10 to 20 years from now. Can we still go outside by that time?
