I spent my childhood days in a small barrio in Virac, Catanduanes wherein the children of our neighbors became my friends and I’ve got one of them as my closest childhood friends. Even though I went to different schools during my elementary days our friendship remains.....even up to now.
I’ve got the best memories of my childhood with her. We climb a tree, swim the river till we almost get so dark, catch shrimp and small fish at the river, fetch water at the nearest spring during the summer, harvest crops, ride to their carabao going to the grazing land, wash clothes at the river and many other things that our parents ask us to do.
We’re as naughty as any other kids in our barrio. One time we stole mango at our neighbor’s backyard, fight with other kids or even disobey our parents just to spend the whole at the river.
Sorry I don't have old photos of us...the picture above was taken last year during her birthday here in Dubai...but now she's back to Philippines...
