Observations

I don’t have anything substantial at the moment to report about the progression of the search so I am writing what you may consider as a  “filler” blog.   My 3 months is almost up.  It feels just like yesterday when I decided to quit my job and then finally flying over here and pursuing…

Batbatan Island

Batbatan is another wonderful place I have been to while on this search.  As I mentioned to you in an earlier post, we chanced upon this island from a lead from a seer that said that my sister is alive and is living in this island.  Even though this was further from where the accident…

Bulalacao

Bulalacao is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to.  Perhaps it’s beauty is heightened by the people that we have come in contact with while we were there.  We stayed there at South Drive Resort that is owned by Chiquita Tano who incidentally was one of the first people we spoke with and that…

Recalibrate

recalibrate  verb [ T ] /ˌriːˈkæl.ɪ.breɪt/ /ˌriːˈkæl.ə.breɪt/ to make small changes to an instrument so that it measures accurately . to change the way you do or think about something. I’ve been racking my brain on how to write my next post.  I had wanted to recount to you on what happened to my trip to Bulalacao where…

How…

How?  How am I going to go about this search?  I’ve talked about the what, the who, the why and the where but “how” am I going to accomplish this?  Especially since I’ve decided to  let things unfold on their own and just go along with the stride (definitely out of my comfort zone).  I…

Where…

I’ve talked about the “What“, the “Who” and the “Why” of this quest but you may be curious to know “Where” in the Philippines I will be looking. To be honest, I really didn’t know at first.  Part of this journey was to recollect things in the past for me and my whole family.  And…

Memory

Memory is a tricky thing. Our perceptions to a shared past differs with each person.  And I suppose, as it should be.  We are all individuals and our experience of the same event will differ from person to person because our personal beliefs and set of experiences before that event all play a part of…

Why…

Now we come to the “why” of this so called quest of mine.  As I mentioned in some of my previous posts, why not?  And that should in itself be enough of an answer but being here now in the Philippines and thinking back on my past, I realized that it is also important to…

Noise

noise /noiz/ noun 1.a sound, especially one that is loud or unpleasant or that causes disturbance. synonyms:sound, din, hubbub, clamor, racket              antonyms:silence I’ve been back home for over 2 weeks now and I’ve observed the amount of noise in the country.  I would even call it noise pollution.   For many of us,  pollution…

Who…

  Maria Edwina Tabucanon Rosales.   The daughter of Godofredo V. Rosales, Sr. and Rosalita Tabucanon Rosales.  The middle child with Godofredo T. Rosales, Jr. (Jun) as the eldest and Marife Rosales (me – Fe) as the youngest.   She is 4’11” tall (yes shorter than me) but definitely not the shortest in brain power….

MacGyvering

Richard Dean Anderson.  Most of you may not remember that name because he is more popularly known as MacGyver by the character he played in the TV show with a title of the same name. MacGyver – IMDB I have to say that it was one of my favorite mid-eighties show.  It is a classic…

Boarding Time

So here I am at the San Francisco International airport at gate A9 Korean Air and waiting for my boarding time. Boarding time.  That now has a deeper meaning for me.  I am boarding onto this ride of my lifetime.  As with any boarding time anxieties, you can’t help but think if your flight will…
