Family Reunion During the Hottest Summer Ever

Wazzup Pilipinas!

When you say summer, it's something like a vacation for the students or maybe also for some employees. Summer is also a time when you feel like you're going to burn and look like charcoal, sweat a lot, and suffer heatstroke because of the extreme heat. In short, it’s so damn hot!!!

Summer for me was not just a time to rest from all the schoolwork and the usual household chores, or just staying indoors all afternoon staring infront of my computer browsing through the Internet or playing my favorite computer games.

I was also able to visit my grandmother because of a special annual occasion. Every summer in our family there’s always a family reunion that we attend to. But this time, when we came over to the reunion venue, my eyes have gone wide open because of the shock - we were so many - there was a lot of us!!!

Some of the relatives I knew, but some were not familiar to me, some I recognized their faces but don't remember their names and some of them I just met for the first time - I really don’t know.


It started with a group photo of our grandparents, second there’s a swimming pool at the place so the kids swam, third was the games, lastly the group photo. In the picture, some of us you can’t see because the other relatives were blocking us.

I looked at the place, it was good. As I looked at the place, the first thing that came into mind was that the province is really a quiet place. I appreciated the warm breeze blowing my hair, the movement of the water in the pool and the blue skies above. Compared to the city where everyone else including me are so busy with our daily chores and duties, I can’t find time to actually appreciate this kind of things.

Well, the next day we went to my nephew’s birthday party. Kids gathered around, games were present and the singing of the Happy Birthday song of course. When the games were over, my cousin smeared icing on every person she saw and when she saw me she immediately ran towards me - but I was too smart for her so I ran away before she could do her nasty thing - I knew what she was up to.

As the day ends we need to go back to Manila, some of my cousins doesn’t want me to go home - they wanted me to stay. But I needed to go home because classes are coming soon. So the next day I had no choice but to go home.

Actually, I was so excited coming back home because I was really anticipating for the comeback stage of the group that I really admire. I waited for the day that they would come back, and boom! The comeback stage was so cool, and also the dance part. I was really drowned by their powerful song and their adorable faces.

So school time has finally arrived, I’d never expected such things like this. Because I’m in my fourth year stage, I felt like I’m getting old already. Just kidding!!!

This summer is quite enjoyable because I interacted with other people and was able to take picture the places I wanted. Even though I’m kind of a camera phobic and an anti-social person.
