It's Our 5th Anniversay


Marriage is not only for fun. It is neither just a traditional obligation nor a natural requirement when your age matures. Marrying someone is uniting with somebody whom is the love of your life. (Secret Contents)

I was trying to write something for my wife on our 5th Wedding Anniversary but somehow I am lost for words. I already wrote about my love and devotion to her, how she changed my life and how she makes me very special.

Then after 15 hours (I am still in the office as of this writing,...at 3am)...I thought about my life without her, It's like a movie without music. Thank God, I found her long before she found me (I wonder why it took her two years before she realized that I was the one she's looking for, ehem!).

I love remembering over and over again what transpired on April 30, 2006, the day she said "I do". It gives me goose bumps. I remember the day she walked down the aisle, I was crying and when I held her hand I forgot everything (I even forgot to kiss my mom). I love that scene.

Five years after, I still feel the same way.




For my wife:


For months, I've been working until after all the people are sleeping and you are patiently waiting for me. I've been missing you a lot (and our daughter too). Today is just another day here at work. Hopefully, in an hour I am done and I could go home and embrace you so tightly.

Sorry about today, I should be home and spend the rest of the day with you. Thanks to your patience and understanding. Thank you that you still open the door for me. I know you love me despite the limited time with you lately. I was not able to plan anything today, I hope we could make this day a memorable one even if my plan of marrying you again wont push through because of limited budget. I hope to do this within the year or on our next anniversary.

Happy Anniversary and I love you.

Salubong

Salubong is an Easter Sunday pre-dawn ritual which reenacts the Risen Christ's meeting with His mother Mary.

This was the first time I attended or witnessed "Salubong" (literally fetch) since 1999. The celebration took place one street away from our house or about 50 meters away so I woke up at 4 am to witnessed it.

The ritual may not be biblical but we believe that it happened a long time ago besides Mary is Jesus' mother and it was appropriate that Mary should know first that His Son is alive. As if Jesus was telling Mary "Do not mourn anymore, I am risen and alive".

We are "Mary" of the modern time, We are in deep pain for the lost of love ones or for some trials in our life but Jesus is telling us "Do not mourn anymore, I am here, I am alive and I will take away all your sufferings and pain". The resurrection of Christ gives us hope and a new beginning and a new life.


Happy Easter everyone.
