Today is unbelievably extra ordinary. The experience I had this morning is My First-Last Day story of someone I called “Nanay” until she gave her last breath away after hearing me and touching her hands. To you, Nanay Aurelia. Thank You for sharing your life and this unforgettable experience I had been resisting since my mother and eldest brother’s death. To be beside to someone on their time of death. Now I know how it feels, and the importance of saying goodbye’s and just being there. May the Lord Bless You and keep you Nanay Aurelia.
And so that is how I started my entire morning with my team mates, visiting the elderly people of Missionaries of Charity in Manila. The service of being there and seeing what the future may behold for everyone, if we will ignore our present lives, getting old alone? away from our ever dearest love ones? and die without them besides us. Truly sad and moving, but hey! this opens a lot of an eye opener for each one of us, Its not yet too late. There is still hope and today is the day to create what the future may look like for us.
Our entire afternoon was all about finding a place to eat in Binondo, courtesy of our tour guide – The Uy’s” .We all went to this Mami House where everyone was truly surprised on the big servings of the Siopao which will really fill up your stomach. The Special Siopao is really huge! and the filling is really tasty, combined it with your special Chicken Mami is my reward for our Morning Service in the Charity.
