Even how much we try to forget the pain of losing him, we still can’t totally over it..or at least just yet. We still can’t forget the pain we felt early morning on December 31st last year – the day father bid farewell for good. Even with the assurance we heard that our father left the easiest, painless way, I knew it was hard for him to leave us too. But although he is no longer with us, he is still in our minds and in our hearts. We still remember vividly his being a very cool father to us. My sisters and I are the closest to our father. They are not very close with our brother for some reason and being thirsty for the love of a son, we, the daughters are hoping to fill that emptiness in our father’s heart and I knew we didn’t fail. We are our father’s angels and best friends.
With father on my 25th birthday. He was so lively then, we didn’t know he is already sick inside. He didn’t show us his pain so we won’t worry for him.
Father and my youngest sister Cheep at our favorite restaurant in Dipolog City, CLS Food Plaza. This was the last happiest meal we had with father. He was sickly already in the photo but he insisted on having some rum, as you can see in the picture.
Father and my younger sister Cheep at home in Manukan. Mother and him were on the verge of separation during this picture. He may be a bad husband but he is a good father to us his children. He is the sweetest person we’ve ever known. Never did we receive a serious beating from him, instead, he would block mom’s beating to protect us.
Father celebrating his last birthday with us – August 2012. This photo is our last remembrance of him. He is loved and missed for always.

Heath is wealth. This is something that we should put into our mind. I came to strongly believe it after my father passed away on December, last year. I used to be so hypocritical when it comes to health and then I came to realize health is indeed the most precious wealth we have in this world. What’s the use of money if it can’t save the life of your loved-ones? As for my father’s complicated condition, money wasn’t able to do something to save his life. If only my father was more careful with his health, or if only we learned of his condition earlier, he shouldn’t have been taken away from us at the early age of 52. We did everything. It is really important to be very watchful and careful with our health because we only have one.
One of the most dreadful diseases nowadays is cancer. Many lives were taken by this dreadful disease. Even at this moment, there are people who are suffering from cancer. Some people are losing hope and some are continually fighting.

I miss my orchids, I miss tending to my little garden at our front yard and generally, I miss my home. I am so sad about my orchids because from about 20 pots and 20 stalks tied on tree trunks, now I only have 2 pots of white ones left. I knew I still have about 10 stalks left and about 5 pots of it when I moved back home. I gave away a few of it to friends and neighbors who were asking before I left my home in Dipolog City but without my notice, my orchids were slowly leaving me too.
With my potted orchid (we call this one Banda) in my old house.
I have different types of orchids then. I can’t name everyone of them but they were in different colors and sizes. I thank Gary for spoiling me with it. Although I am not good with plants, he often bought me plants and flowers to add to my garden. He does most of the watering too, leaving me time to focus on my online work. These below are just two types of the orchids I had in my little garden before. Aren’t they beautiful?
Back to the present, when I checked our garden (mom’s garden) here tonight, I only have two pots left. Mother said the others were slowly dying. I hope the two pots of Banda orchids i have left would endure the summer heat.
