But it's something special. Privie's mom was celebrating her golden birthday.
We arrived at the town of Maddela around 6pm. Duz bought at the store beside Privie's house. Nagulat siya na may babaeng biglang tumawag sa kanya. Hindi niya kilala yung babae. It happened that the store owner was his batchmate in St. John Berchmans High School in Cordon Isabela. Anak siya ng Vice Mayor at ang laki ng bahay.
Em: Wow ha. Yung kasikatan mo umaabot hanggang ibang probinsya!
Duz: Momi, nung high school pa ko nun.
Anyway, the birthday was held at the baranggay hall. Ang bongga ng birthday sa probinsya, buong baranggay ang bisita.
The program started around 7pm.
Kilalang-kilala si Mommy Rose sa bayan nila kasi marami na siyang natulungan. Halata naman dahil ang dame niyang bisita.
She has four children. Itinaguyod niya mag-isa ang mga anak niya. According to other people, she's very hardworking. Nagtitinda siya dati ng mani at kung anu-ano pa. Now, she has her own merchandise store. May tinda siyang RTW, furniture at marami pang iba.
Nakakabilib yung mga ganyang success stories, diba?
Here's team Centaurus picture that night.
After dinner, I told Duz I needed to sleep. Feeling ko lumulutang na ko sa antok. 12 midnight pa lang kasi gising na ko para magimpake. Hindi naman ako nakatulog sa biyahe dahil inenjoy ko ang scenery.
Chloe and I slept inside the car while the rest of them (including Duz) had a drinking session.
At 12 midnight, Duz woke me up and we went to the house where we were going to spend the night.
Hindi pala kamag-anak nila Privie si Kuya Dexter (house owner). Kumpare lang niya pero nakakatuwa kasi inaccomodate niya kameng lahat. He opened his house for us. Bongga nga eh, ang yayaman ng mga tao sa probinsya. It triggers my interest to build our own house in the province.
That was it!
