I have been busy the past days since I am scheduled to visit the Philippines! I always find it difficult to pack and have been buying pasalubong (souvenir) for my friends and family. I was debating whether I wanted to go this month or next month then finally decided. I will be talking to a couple of people too who will be helping me with my personal shopping business.
I am partly excited. Partly nervous. I have only been here in the US for six months and it was quite an adjustment. It is always nice to see your family and friends but I can only spend a couple of weeks since I have to look for a new job. Good byes are always difficult.
Althroughout my stay I have realized that things do really change. You've got to grasp at whatever is given to you and be thankful for it. Nothing is permanent, once you leave, people may choose to stay in your life or move on with their own too. In the end, one can only hope for the best.
See you Manila! I missed you! I left you but my heart stayed there.
