Aki’s summer vacation is about to end. Huhuhu.
Before the school year starts, lemme tackle the oldest draft in my head — our summer Elbi vacay 2013.
If you remember, Aki had his first vacation without us last year. All cousins stayed in our anscestral home in Bayog because my UK-based relatives were home for a few weeks.
What happens when you put 5 boys and 1 girl with ages 3 to 10 in one roof? Chaos! Clutter! And lots of laughter and happy memories.

The newest Go Go Balls addicts in town.
She spent most of her life working as a nurse in London and has helped so many. She is one of the most generous people I know. She does not buy things for herself but did not think twice when her high school classmate asked her to finance his daughters schooling. My sister and I were actually very irritated when non-relatives would ask for financial assistance but do not even bother to attend any of our pabasas. But my tita helps without question. Given the number of students she helped, we should name a foundation after her. Happy birthday, Tita! We love love love you!
No summer vacation in Los Banos is complete without swimming in Pansol. We are regulars at Casa Buena Suerte.
Because Paranque is known for being water deprived (although that is not true anymore since the major repiping 3 years ago), Aki was very excited
I had an aaaaaaw moment when I saw my older cousins teach their sons how to swim.
Who knew that the same boys who teased and scared me to death would make patient and affectionate dads? One time when I was about 8 years old, they locked me in the dirty kitchen and kept telling me that a chopped off hand is behind me.
May you grown up close to each other.
