so this has been an overdue post i know. the new work schedule has been eating my head up for the past few days now and the workload is just totally outrageous so let me set the time back a little (a week to be exact).
On November 12, all of us (mom, aunt, brother, sister-in-law, cousin and i) headed to Dubai terminal 3 to bid our last farewell to the manila group. My mom will be staying back for a couple more hours as her flight departs at 2 in the morning of 13th November. So we went back to the hotel to gather our things up and had a quick nap to make the most out of the late check-out time they granted us. Brought all the leftovers at my apartment which was literally 2 blocks away from the hotel we stayed at and then while my mom dozed off to sleep some more i prepared myself for what’s about to happen that night. (waterworks will run dry…)
We forgot to eat lunch, well not exactly but my mom was sleeping all throughout the day that i didn’t even bother to wake her up to have lunch when all i could offer was a peanut butter sandwich. hehehe. At 6pm we went to Dubai Marina’s Jumeira Beach Residence together with my roommate Kiki to have dinner at Dashidai, Mom was craving for Chinese food and I just took a shot on this restaurant.
After dinner, we had a walk at The Walk – the place where i usually go on a weekend to just relax, have coffee and enjoy the good-looking people walking around me which is a real feast for my eyes. :p We headed back to my apartment at 10pm then went to the airport. Stayed there for 2 hours with my mom while waiting for the flight.
As we started walking towards the passport control, I began to cry. I did not cry because she was leaving and have no idea when I will be able to see her again, I cried to make amends for not crying when I was 8 before she left the Philippines. I know that this is just the start of the many trips we are going to have and I will bet my whole inheritance (if i have any) that next year, we will see each other again. D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y!
