Holidays and a business trip

I spent the holidays in Japan three years in a row: in 2006, 2007, and 2008. I was very homesick during those days but thanks to my friends, I was able to celebrate Christmases, New Years and birthdays Pinoy-style in Japan.

This year, I’m not looking forward to these major events but I’m looking forward to summer 2013. Why? Because this year, I’ll be spending the holidays away from my family, again. This year, I’ll be spending the holidays in a Catholic country. I’m happy that I get to have another unique experience but I can’t really shake the homesickness off.

See you again soon, Mexico… but I still need to hear from the embassy about my visa!

    It must be fun seeing new places. But without family, I can image how tough it must be on all of you. You will have to rely on technology such as Skype to keep in close contact with them. Hope you see them soon enough. In the meantime, have a great Thanksgiving.
