Every time I come home to Cavite, it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world. The comfort of being in a familiar place is soothing. Every thing feels different. My old bed feels softer and I sleep better, the food tastes great (well my mom is a great cook), relaxing is so much easy to do. I am sure that a lot of people can relate to this feeling especially when they have moved out of home and migrated in a totally different world.
We’ve been living in the southern part of Metro Manila for five years already. My parents’ house are far southern. We get to visit every now and then especially on holidays. Last weekend was an unplanned visit and I am so glad we did it.
Of all the times that we visited home, I only became nostalgic with last weekend’s visit. Let me share this so Lucas will see the future vintage artifacts that Mami had. It’s Throwback Thursday, anyways. Maybe some of you can relate to it 🙂
I saw my old CD collection. I do not know what will be the future of music and film recording, but CD was the most revolutionary storage after the floppies and cassettes. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture of our old turntable and records. Who knew you could save hundreds of songs in a player that can fit in your hand? By the time Lucas gets to read this, I wonder how small the players are and what format would the songs be?
I collected St. Gabriel angel figurines because he is my archangel. Hence, naming my child “Gabriel”. Some are outside my room and displayed in the living room.
I had Archie Digests. Lots of it! Books. Lots of it! I wasn’t able to take a picture because they were in my sister’s room.
Next time we visit Cavite again, I’ll take more pictures of my stationary collection, letters from high school, student IDs and of course, old pictures.
