October 21, 2008 5:32am CST
Are some of the anticipated event in the Philippines. Filipinos go home to the province to pay respect to the dead loved ones. My family usually go to the cemetery at dawn since we want to avoid traffic. There will be so many people with tents by then. We plan our trip to the cemetry as the whole family go together in 4 or 5 cars. We go to Himlayan Filipino first in Tandang Sora. Then to Loyola in Marikina. The next day we go to Manila memorial in Paranaque and Libingan ng mga Bayani(Heroes' graves for the military) in Makati. We dont bring food anymore as the cemetery's grounds will have food booths. We bring flowers and candles then pray for the dead. The kids enjoy Nov1 and 2 very much. Since it is also the semestral classes for my kids until november 10. We will be going home to Manila tomorrow,so I will be gone for mylot for a long,everybody...enjoy the break and holiday!"see" you all by mid November...good bye for now.
