Keeping Good Memories Alive


           I am a very sentimental person. I keep things (kahit parang basura) when I feel they are really worth keeping, or even say goodbye to my old things I used/kept for a very long time. I remember when my mom freaked out after cleaning my room and saw an old box with candy wrappers from candies I ate with my best friend in gradeschool, bus tickets from my very first provincial trip, Mc Donalds softdrink's plastic cup from my first barkada gimik :p, pair of used chopsticks..of course I cleaned them first :) and other old stuff with lots of memories behind 'em.  I love keeping all the good sweet memories alive. 

As I browsed through my old blog posts , I saw this letter I wrote for my tsinelas na pambahay a few years back. Got those slippers as a Christmas gift from my favorite cousin. I think I've been with those slippers for almost 4 years :) 


"Sa umaga pa lang pag-gising ko ikaw agad ang hinahanap ko...ganun din kapag pagdating ko ng bahay ikaw agad ang hanap ng mata ko. Umiinit agad ang ulo ko kapag nakikita kong ginagamit ka ng iba...lalo na pag hawak ka ni mama habang humahabol ng ipis. Kaya hindi kita masisisi kung bumigay ka na kasi sa dami ba naman ng dinaanan mo alam kong suko kana. Antagal din ng panahon na natulungan mo ako...salamat ha..paalam"

    bale, tinapon mo yang old tsinelas mo? or naka tabi pa din?

  3. Parang ako lang. I have a box full of letters dating from when I was in grade 5. Iyong iba nawala ko na but I saved most of them. Ang sarap balikan. :)

    1. Yes the reason why we saved them is for us to see them and remember those good old memories once in awhile :)

  5. it's really sweet of you to even write that letter to your slipper! "lalo na pag hawak ka ni mama habang humahabol ng ipis." -- this cracked me up! bakit nga naman yun pang tsinelas mo ang kelangan pamatay ng ipis?? hehe i no longer have my stuff from high school, although i do wish i didn't throw away my poetry notebook from back then.

    this was a delightful read, roselle! thank you so much for sharing! God bless <3 :-)

  6. Kakatuwa naman, pati tsinelas may tula! Ok yan!
    Pero talaga kahit mga tickets at candy wrappers? sabagay father ko ganuon din, kahit na simpleng bagay basta memorable ay itinatabi.

  10. I'm that way too! But since I've moved more than a couple of times already, I HAD to throw a lot of them out. Kind of sad but it now feels liberating. :)

  11. Aww, that's cute. I'm really sentimental like that too. Little things that wouldn't be important to others, I remember or keep around to always have those little reminders that instantly bring me back to memories!

    Sincerely,
    Sabrina
