One a Half Hour to Mass

woke up at 5am today to prepare for mass. and just 6 minutes past 5, i did wake up. after morning rituals, heated water as the routine for the past 5 days went. and then i had to stop. i am not in manila. i am in santiago. in santiago city, isabela. no need to hurry here. the church is just a tricycle away and the trip won't take 5 minutes. so slipped back to bed and lay around until 545am. just the right time to bath without hurrying. to get dressed without hurrying. at 620am, i have yet to comb but who needs to rush?

arrived at church 635am. the first mass has not yet ended and the one i'm supposed to take started at 7am and ended way past 815am because of combo music mistaken for mass music. i am indeed in santiago city, isabela.
