Ayusan Sur is the name of our barangay in Vigan. It is a little barangay. “Ayusan” is an Ilocano term which refers to an area or a place where water (be it rain water or river) flows. “Sur” was added to identify it with the other barangay with the same name (Ayusan Norte). Sur means south and Norte means north.
Today is October 3. It is the day for our barangay fiesta and I am expecting a lot of food tonight. I was not able to bond with old friends and relatives during the day because I have a work so I am looking forward for a great dinner.
A big dinner
After work, I immediately went home. I decided to buy food in 7-11 awhile back but I realized it is a waste of money since a big meal is waiting for me. Besides, I want to learn to control my compulsion in spending money.
At home, I saw my mom eating alone so I joined her. Afterwards, my cousins Erika, Noah, Flordeliz, Alvin, Genalyn, Rain, Faith, Faye, Edlaine, John Lloyd and my brother Edison all came. But only the three of my cousins joined me in the table (Noah, Rain and Erika) with my brother Edison. It was a great time to bond with my little cousins. I am their eldest male cousin and second oldest after my cousin Honey who is 28 years old now. Below are photos of my cousins tonight with mom and my bro.
This is how happy our barangay fiesta is. We bond together like a big, big family. One thing more, this is the reason why I blog. I don’t want to burry good memories. As much as possible I want them to stay. Thank to blogging. I hope blogs will stay forever. It is where I keep these precious memories when my brain can no longer contain everything. I would love my cousins to see these photos in the future and see how they looked like when they were kids.
