My Tito Louie, mama’s youngest brother, is leaving for Guam a couple of days from now. Finally, his petition papers came down from the embassy after, uhm, 10 years, I think. He has been really busy the past months fixing his papers and we are all glad that all his hard work will finally pay off.
We had a simple gathering last Saturday as his going away party. There were not so many of us, just the usual relatives who come in any get together that we organize. Still, everyone had fun. There were stories on how each of us are doing, there was singing on the karaoke, there was drinking and eating, of course. My Tita-Lolas kept on telling my tito advices on what he should do when he get there, which I am sure he has planned for already. The younger ones, they kept on telling Tito what they want for Christmas. Hahaha! One of the cousins told Tito he wants a new sound system, like an avr-1912. As for me, I just want him to have a safe landing there. Chos. LOL.
We had to leave ahead of everyone else because we do not have a car and I have two girls in tow. But this mama vows to learn how to drive soon!
