IT’S a holiday! Although I don’t remember when and why Ninoy Aquino was proclaimed a hero, I’m thankful to the guy because I get to spend time with my family today. I only have to spend a few hours in the office to wrap up the pages of Pinoy Gazette’s showbiz and lifestyle sections. After that, I’m through and free to do whatever I want.
I also noticed that Mr. Aquino’s death anniversary kept a lot of motorists inside their homes so traveling is easy and the streets get to breathe for once.
Honestly, I’m not the kind who excitedly reports for work on a holiday since I’d rather spend it elsewhere with my family. But today, I was left with no choice. I left our home this morning with a heavy heart. I promised Sonnet I’ll be home before sunset and she just smiled. My Switee, on the other hand, has to go to office also because he works for a company whose clients are US-based so what’s it to them if it’s a holiday here? Jon promised me though that he’ll be home early, too.
It’s been a tough week so a day of relaxation means so much to me. Thank you, Ninoy!
