Low Bat

It was just last night when I figure out what Faith was trying to say few days ago every time she hold my cellphone she would say, libat, libot something like that. Well, last night was a bit clear because when my niece gave her, her cell phone thence she cried out loud and said low bat!

Mj and her had fun playing with my cellphone, they listened to some songs or humming with it but Mariel took my phone from them because she had set the alarm clock on the next morning and if they keep on playing music with my phone, it would drain immediately and the alarm will not work. Faith cried out so loud, insisting to have the phone back that my niece handed her, her cellphone that is already out of battery, we didn’t know Faith will figure that one out, she returned the phone back to Mariel and said it is low bat.

We were wondering where and how and why did she knew about it, I was speechless I am just a one proud Mama.

She Is Going To Be College Soon

My Niece has been with me since she was on her fourth grade and I am so glad to see her now that she will become the junior high when the class starts. Two years more to go she would step to another big journey and that is going to college.

She is not yet decided what course to take though but I hope whatever it is she will able to reach it. She knows that I am always on her side to support her as long as she finish her college and when she does that I could be the happiest auntie in the whole wide world.

Like Dad when I was still young, he always told me that education is the only treasure that no one could ever get. It is the only wealth that will be yours until the end of time. That is somehow I want her to remember as she is beginning to reach her dreams someday.

Her Letter

When I slowly the greeting card from my niece Mariel, I was surprised because inside was content a letter.

You may expect some touchy message from her but naahh! It was not at all because I found myself laughing so hard when I read every line of it. I shared it with sister Irenei and her Mom online, they were laughing so loud as well. Here is the letter:

Dear Mary Ann (See she didn’t said Ate Mary Ann, Grrr) Bow x’0

What will I tell? I cannot think of the exact words to say here. I could have given this to Mama but she is not here, so I have forced myself to give this letter to you! [hehehe Joke!] My handwritten is bad as well as the card. Grrr if only our teacher did not said that this should be a home made card I might not doing this. Come what may!

The only thing I could say is can you give me ten pesos today? So I can buy you a flower by tomorrow, will you give me? Wahhh Faith woke up smiling at me, uhmmm you would probably think that I was noisy in the room that’s why she woke up, but no! I was not. She just woke up all so sudden and smiling at me.

Uhmm I’ll be serious this time—–> when will we buy our Christmas Gift for our school party??? Hahaha!!! Just joking! this time I’ll be a little serious—–> I’ll be going to another Christmas Party on that afternoon, te will you allow me? Please Te? Promise ha? Hehehe!!! There’s more at the back, you must be tired now of reading this because I wrote so nonsense hehehe!

Anyway, te thank you for giving me baon, can you make an increase te? Co’z the fare is rising up going school. Joke! Joke! But if you would increase it te, it is all right with me. [LOL] but if not its still ok.

Thank you Te and Mommy Irenie too for giving me everything even though my Mama is not here, you were both there to support me all my needs. Although sometimes I forgot to say thank you for all your patience with me, I just so shy to express it. I feel it is so OA to tell you how I am thankful to have you care for me. Thanks for being the producer oopps sorry! For being the guardian always to me

I must stop now, this making me insane for my letter is too long already. You didn’t might understand the letter at all. Te, don’t show this to Mommy Irenie and Mama ok. “Bantay lang jud ka” till here.

Mariel


You would laugh more if you read the letter in our dialect.

Hiding Their Gifts

Mariel has prepared her gift to me the night before the event in school, she made a home made greeting card, she said she will give the card to me on the next day yet.

Mj already prepared one for me at school; her teacher was the one who keep so assuring that the gifts will be given to us on that day.

When the principal asked us to stand up, I was excitedly stood up, waiting for them to give me the gifts, I know it was only a greeting card but importantly was the thought they wrote on the card.

I waited for how many minutes, never thought that the gift from Mj was already at my back. She just put it in the chair and then run away. I disbelievingly shake my head, she was never like this before, she always express herself to me but I guess things have been change.

When the Principal of the school announces that the high school students will also going to give us something, I stood up immediately. I expected her to give me the gift she told me that night, but to my disappointment I didn’t even saw her around.

It was lunchtime that Mariel gave me the greeting card and said she was shy to give it to me at school and Mj has the same reason too, when I asked what happen to them during the event.

Tsk, tsk, tsk kids these days!
