Nostalgia #62: Remembering Samar

I was born in Samar. I was only four or five years old when we moved in to Batangas, my father's hometown. My father was a Biyahero. He met my mother in Samar and the rest is history. My sisters visited the place three years ago and they had great stories when they came back. I did not join them because I thought that it's kind of hard to travel with kids. There were some scenes that kept flashing back in my mind back in my pre-school years. I went to a school in a convent nearby and I was only four then. That's what I clearly recall because my teachers were nuns. I also remember whenever we visit my grandparents (my mother's side) and big trees were bountiful. Now I wonder if the forest is still existing by this time. Illegal logging has been rampant and was abused by people in power in the past decade.

Someday, I wanna go back to the place where I was born. I want to reminisce back years in my childhood. I wish my mother is still alive today. She would really love to have a vacation in her hometown too. Oh well reality bites. I just hope I can visit back before I reach my golden years.
