Last weekend, we went to Bryan’s hometown in Pampanga. Not really his hometown but rather to his Father’s. He insisted that I should come because he wants me to meet his relatives there.
The travel was not that long.. we left the house at around 10am and came there at lunch time. There were a lot of people, I do not know them but I kept on asking for their hands to “Mano” (a gesture used in Filipino culture performed as a sign of respect to elders). I met his cousins and aunts which were all very accommodated. After eating we all went to their room and some of us slept because most of us are really tired and was not able to sleep well or have no sleep at all due to their work (I had only a few hours of sleep because Mason keeps on moving until 3am! I even tried to wake Bryan up but he is too sleepy)
After a few hours of sleep, we all went to the nearby Church the San Isidro Labrador church to Pray (no mass when we came). Then, we went to another house of their relative for our Dinner. There were a lot of different dishes and all were delicious.
It was a very hot, tiring but full day. I am happy that I was able to meet his relatives. I hope someday, I would be able to bring him to Capiz as well to meet my big family tree soon with Mason 🙂
