The first time I visited Bugasong was when I was 3 years old.
That time was my first time riding the airplane. I remember almost every summer, my Tito Pari would always ask me if I wanted to visit Bugasong. I would always say yes, because that would mean, a frequent visit at the beach, and non stop playing with my cousins.
Last month my grandmother passed away. And so last week I was already waiting for confirmation on whether I was going to visit for the burol, and when my uncle asked me if I wanted to go, I just said yes. And then he thought that we should bring Zach along.
At first I was reluctant on bringing Zach, but then I remembered that tito was the one who brought me to Bugasong so I booked us a ticket.
It was a lot of firsts for Zach, so I didn’t want to pass on the opportunity. And since tito was the one paying for the trip well…
I was not able to take a lot of pictures since, I was the one responsible for Zach but still.
Unfortunately Zach fell asleep before the plane took off. So he was asleep during the flight and woke up when we were about to go out the plane.
The next plan was to take Zach swimming on the beach. And since, most of the people at the house were busy, the only free time we had was Friday. So Friday morning, Zach and Tito Pari was already set to go to the beach when his friend called to say he was visiting that morning. So again, the visit to the beach got pushed to afternoon. And then afternoon came and when we told our uncle that we are going to the beach, he asked to stay a bit since it was still early. And so we waited, and a lot of people came and then we were busy once again.
And then… Free time! Most of them including my uncle couldn’t go so my cousins and I went with Zach…
Talk about saving the best for last.
Hopefully next time when we visit, it would be just an ordinary day, so we could go out around more…
