Missing My Family

I have been away for more than a year already and it is only now that I miss my family terribly. I miss having long conversations with them about politics and gender issues. I miss gossiping with them.

I miss having my hand on my father's shoulders while we walk in the mall. I miss my mother's hand around my arms while we walk on the road. I miss laughing with my sister. Sometimes, we laugh so hard that we cry. I miss my brother as we bully each other.

I have never laughed that hard here in Bangkok but I can also remember how hard I cried back in Manila. Back there, my life and career have no direction. Indeed, you win some and you lose some.

I do not regret my decision though. I just cannot help missing my family.
