Goodbye Mister

I was browsing around this blog, looking at my past entries, I wouldn't say I was shock at how this blog transformed over the couple of years that it has been around but I wasn't able to control the giggles and smirks, the raised eyebrows and quirk of my lips, I am such a random person and I tend to leap from one topic to another. But in the years that I am blogging about my life, I never once mentioned what type of family I was born in, don't hold your breath as I am not going to begin now but I guess a little information won't hurt, and for my online friends to understand what this post is really about, I guess, a little background on my family is but necessary.

My grandfather is a businessman, a pure-blooded Chinese from Shanghai, China, he met my grandmother through his cousin who also married a Filipina. His cousin migrated here in the Philippines prior to him thus giving the first an opportunity to build a business, make connections and meet the sister of my grandma. My grandfather (Angkong) first started as a business partner of his cousin right until he decided on venturing to new things, granny didn't hesitate to give angkong a chance in love as his cousin (Papa Kia), who became her brother-in-law was a good man and I guess, magaling manuyo si angkong, hehe. Granny gave birth to my nanay and they were living happily until the booming mining business down south caught the interest of my grandpa, he asked my grandma to moved but she didn't oblige and I guess, other complications arose as their marriage crumble, they went their separate ways with my mom staying with granny. You think the story is over by then right, but no, granny found out that she was pregnant with their second child and, blame it to pride and heartache, she decided on keeping it a secret to her husband. Now, have you watch the movie Mano Po 2, I don't know how the scriptwriter wrote a story as similar as such to my family's, but it is exactly how it is in our real life. I'll leave the rest of the story in black, a little secrecy is but needed in life noh *grins*.

Two weeks ago, angkong passed away, we never did meet personally but I knew about him and he knew about me, my mom is just too strong-willed and tainted to accept him with open arms and build a relationship with him. However I looked at it, we're still related by blood, family and though we can never claim to love each other, I would have like to send him away.

I dreamt of him, his own way of saying goodbye I guess, this is my way - Goodbye Mister, Godspeed...
