The Gift of Naga

as i leave Naga for the bigger outside home that extends more than 600km to Ifugao, i am thankful for-

...priceless days and nights with my Abalantung
...visiting Dad at Sto. Nino
...hearing mass in all fave Churches: Basilica, Carmelite, and the Immaculate Concepcion
...visiting Pili
...touching base with CSSAC colleagues and lending emotional and moral support in the process
...numerous happy and noisy lunches and dinners with family
...eating Maki, gambasetti, taho, turon, baduya, pandesal from Universal, kinonot, siopao, asado mami, mazapan, buko and mango pies at Kopi Roti
...walking along Igualdad and mulling over a future research on the Naga City Public Market
...every day, because being embraced by Bicol, my home is a gift.
