A surprise visit to relatives

My maternal grandmother is from Morong, Rizal. When I was young, we often visit our relatives there. Even though it is just a two-hour trip away from Marikina, I always feel as though I am in a much far away province because of the ambiance. My parents both grew up in Marikina so I don't get to spend summer vacations in the province like my classmates back in grade school and high school. A visit to nearby provinces always make me excited.

Last Sunday was Morong's town fiesta. My mother called me up at around 9 in the morning to ask if I wanted to go. Of course I said yes. If my memory serves me right, I last visited the place when I was still in high school. My mother, my sister, my husband and Little Andoy took a cab to my aunt's house in Antipolo for the carpool with her family. It was only an hour drive from Antipolo so we arrived shortly before 1pm. Just in time for lunch. Not knowing that we are going to their place, my lola's sisters were very excited to see us. It was also my husband's and Little Andoy's first time to go there.

I couldn't remember how many times I went back to the table to eat. There were lots of food. Everybody was so happy to see each other again. It was like a mini family reunion.
