I just turned 18 ng mag migrate kami dito sa Amerika last year. Medyo ayoko pa nga na sumama that time kasi may ka-MU ako sa school.

Gusto ko sana sumama pero medyo masama talaga ang pakiramdam ko. Sinamahan ang parents ko ni Tita Trina. Si ninong Jeff naman ay may overtime sa work kaya hindi nakasama.

Before they left, binigyan ako ni Tita Trina ng Ibuprofen na ininom ko naman kaya I felt better after an hour or so. Medyo nakatulog ako sa sofa in my nightie nang may narinig akong pumasok sa bahay – si ninong Jeff pala! Hindi ko na sya masyadong maalala kasi mga three years old pa lang ako ng mag migrate sila dito sa US. He is in his late 40’s early 50’s.

“Michelle! Is that you, already?! Wow, you’ve grown so much!”, sabi ni ninong Jeff. I said, “yes nga po ninong, pero I still feel na hindi pa rin ako...
