Remembering My Aunt

It's been 2 years and 1 month since my beloved aunt went to be with the Lord. I wrote about her here in this post. The pain is not as bad as when she just left us but I still do remember her. How could I forget my aunt who had been with me and my siblings since our birth. She was our 2nd mom who cared for us and loved us dearly. I just wished I could turn back the time so I can take care of her too when she got old.

I was in the states when her dementia sets in. She became so forgetful and she didn't even remember my name when I got back from the US. I was deeply saddened that time. I was able to be with her for only a year since we came back in my homeland. For that span of time, I was able to tell her I love her when we were talking. I gave her a bath and washed her clothes too. Those times were not enough to give back to her all the things she had done for us. My dear auntie, I really miss you so much. Thank you for all the sacrifices and love you showed us.

Flight To The Philippines

How time flies! We've been here in my homeland for 3 years already. I remember our flight was in the month of January and it was still winter that time. It's was a long trip from Texas to the Philippines, more than 22 hours including the lay-over and it was really boring while sitting down in the plane. It's a good thing that all the seats in AA were equipped with a small tv so I watched a lot of movies while flying. When I got tired, I took photos of me and my hubby as souvenirs inside the plane. We took the American Airlines and they have a modern technology. We can see in the tv where we were and how far we were to our destination.

We had a 2 hour lay-over in Tokyo and then we rode the Japan Airlines from there to Manila. It's a smaller and older plane but the fight attendants were all young, helpful and pretty compared to the flight attendants of the AA. They also served better foods. My hubby was so observant and he compared the services of the 2 airlines and he likes better the services of JAL.
