The 5-Day Homecoming Vacay Part 1

Last week was the first homecoming vacation for this year. Like every other homecoming, it felt like 5-days is too short. It's really not enough. Although I get to spend time with my family, I wish it was more than 5-day. You know what I'm talking about.

The most recent homecoming vacation is extra special because I brought along my boyfriend with me. We decided it was about time for him to meet the rest of my family. He already met my brother Florante, my nephew Brandon and my mother during their stay here in Manila last year. He was able to spend sometime with them when they were here in Manila. He just haven't met my older brother, Aleksander. And of course, it's about time for him to meet some of my relatives and friends back home. It's about time for him to check out my hometown. :)

My boyfriend and I were already anxious about the homecoming weeks before our scheduled flight. Finally, it was Sunday morning of January 26. He was able to set foot on General Santos City.


My usual first stop was at Lainy's home. My boyfriend met my favorite Aunt Rose and cousins Mark and Jayson and his son - Morning Dew. We had breakfast and later on my Aunt insisted that we have lunch before going home in Polomolok. So we stayed at their home for few more hours and chatted for a while. Lainy was able to join our chat via Skype. As you all know, she migrated in Australia with her husband. Thank God for technology, families stay connected even if they're miles apart. :)


Mark and Jayson with Morning Dew offered to drive us home after lunch. How convenient, right? We had more time to catch up. I miss this cousins of mine, really. I'm glad they were doing good with the band - Kuerdas Band and with each of their personal and family lives. My boyfriend on the other hand was trying to get along with my cousins and sometimes join in the conversation. He didn't have a hard time with my cousins. They have been really nice to my boyfriend. :)

We reached my home after about an hour. Mark drives really slow, eh? LOL! He's a very careful driver. 

I thought nobody was home when I opened the front door. Until I heard my nephew crying inside the room. He was waking his father up and kept asking why they were sleeping when his Tita Allena is coming home?? LOL! He's that excited to see me! The feeling is of course, mutual. And voila! There I was right in front of him! He hugged me so tight and got more surprised when he saw his Tito Junjun (my boyfriend). He was so happy, we all can tell! 


The hyper-active boys got switched right on! LOL! He's got Morning Dew as his playmate. We just let the little boys carry on playing while the grown ups chatted at the same we all were watching them play. It was indeed a good sigh of relief to be back home!

A very nice bonding moment for 5 days, that you ask for more. Just pray that maybe next time, you can stay for a longer time. glad you brought your boyfriend. It adds to your well-being as a lover.

ahh..the feeling of being home at last after so many years or months being away from what you've used to have. I assume 5 days is best than 3 days, the important part is you or everyone did have a great time with each other.

Cheers!

oh, I did not know you and Lainy are cousins, I could see the similarity, those very charming smile, and happy faces. homecoming and reunion is always something that could bring us lots of joy from walking down memory lane and reuniting with our loved ones.

There's nothing so heart warming as a much awaited homecoming. There was only one time in my life that I lived far from home (really far - I was living abroad for a couple of years). I would say that the flight home was the most gratifying trip I had in my entire life.

5 days may not be enough but at least you get to spend time with the people you loved!

5 days is not enough but am sure that you can spend it wisely and meaningful especially your boyfriend is with you. I wish you a fun but short vacation and enjoy every moment of it with family and friends.
