My cousins Faye and Avec have been living with their mom in London for several years now. My aunt (who also paid most of my college tuition fee, bless her soul) works there, and decided that it’s best her two kids are with her. I miss the kids, us being a tightly-knit family. They’re coming home today for a two-month stay in the Philippines, and are expected to arrive later this evening. But I won’t be able to see them just yet because we’re already here in Baguio. But they promised they will come here (and bring presents for Svet! Yay!), and I’m holding on to that promise.
They look so grown up now. The culture there has done so much for them. I’m glad we’re still pretty close, even though we don’t see each other anymore. And I have to thank Facebook for that.
