Feeling wistful of the passing year and the memories it will be bringing, I contented myself slumping on my bed on the remaining hours of 2010 hoping to find a comforting rest and eventually find a sound sleep (again) before the New Year’s Eve mass. Unfortunately I woke up a couple of minutes after 12 midnight and had missed all the merriments the New Year brings…
The colorful firecrackers display was almost gone. The smoky air was all that was left plus a bunch of smiling passerby and the sound of firecrackers blasting every minute. The street was a bit noisy unlike those of the previous years.
The recurrent rain showers have undeniably hampered the ways by which people celebrate the occasion outside their homes. I just hoped it did not affect at all the parishioners who will be celebrating the Feast of Mary, the Mother of God.
To begin my first blog entries for this year [the other entry should have been posted yesterday (the last day of December 2010), I intentionally reserved this slot for the treasures I found in my inbox beginning December 31, 2010; 3:22pm up to January 1, 2011; 5:02pm. Thanks to these wonderful people who never failed to inspire and cheer me up…

Maw-ot ko na sa paglagas kan taon 2010, saro ako sa mga matatadang dahon sa saimong sanga, tanganing sa sunod na burongahan, sabay tang himateon guiraray an tunay na hamis kan buhay…
Biyaya nin Dios mapasaimo lugod, asin sa saimong pamilya…
Maogma asin maswerteng maabot na Bagong Taon!!!”

“Para di malasin ang NEW YEAR huwag mo isasali sa handa ang bilog na prutas na may itim na buto tulad ng pakwan, chico, atbp.
Wag ka rin maghanda ng ice cream para di matunaw ang swerte at higit sa lahat wag maghanda ng apat ang paa, baboy, baka, at kambing, at baka tumakbo ang swerte. Wag din ang isda at baka malunod ang swerte. Wag ka maghanda ng may pakpak tulad ng manok o pabo at baka lumipad and swerte.
Upang matiyak ang swerte sa 2011 wag ka na lang maghanda!
Tipid pa! Happy New Year Po!
