After six months of not visiting home, I decided to visit yesterday for All Saints Day or undas or Todos los Santos. It's a practice and it is hard to break it. It was as well a reason to visit my mother. Mom had her 20-kilo pig rolled for a roast. Baby roast pig, yum! I have been missing and craving for the taste of roast pig's crispy skin and yesterday I had my craving satisfied. Thanks mom for having such a grand preparation for us. You truly misses us big time! Accompanying me in my visit home yesterday were my little sisters and father of course.


We arrived home (Manukan) around three in the afternoon then after an hour together with mom, we went to the two cemeteries in there to visit the deceased family and relatives at their final resting place.We lighted candles, said a little prayer and went back home. At dinner, we feasted on the baby roast pig and on other preparations prepared by mom. Later, we had a chitchat over a few alcoholic drinks and then at midnight, my sisters and I left for Dipolog back to our apartment. Dad stayed for he was drunk. My brother drove him around eight in the morning today back to the apartment.
