30 Jan – 3 Feb 2019
I know I wasn’t supposed to travel as much anymore. I had to save up for the months that I will soon be unemployed but how could I resist my father’s 65th birthday celebration? The birthday of the man who treated us like his princesses for over thirty years? Despite the urge to save, I just couldn’t as my father is so important to me.
For this occasion, both I and my sister allotted this weekend to celebrate with my dad and mom. We went to a less populated beach resort in Lobo, Batangas. The owner of the resort became a friend to my parents already. The huts were very basic and so as the resort. It didn’t really matter because we were together. My dad kept on barbequing while we kept on munching on the nicely cooked foodies my mom and dad prepared for us.
The next day, we went to a historic lighthouse, Malabrigo. This lighthouse was built during the Spanish occupation in the Philippines and was popularised recently as it was part of the Philippine TV series called Araw Gabi.
We then passed by Lovers Lane. I saw that there were other places to visit in Lobo, like a monolith and more mountains but my mom didn’t want to explore further as she was scared to further ascend to the mountains.
We then headed back to the resort and ate and walked and slept some more. The remaining hours were just as fun. My parents’ happiness made us happy.
I know that this will probably be my last visit back home with a status of “Single”. The next time I head back home, I would already be married to my T. The fact that I won’t be able to head home as frequently saddens me a lot but I have to experience all these to see if I would be able to do it.
I was, am and will continue on to feel blessed as I know I have a family that will always support me in all my life endeavors. I love my family and my soon family a.k.a. T.
