Full Moon

I had gone home to Manila last week to celebrate my 39th birthday with the family. The evening of my birthday, my brother, sister-in-law, my nephew Papi and I went to buy fried chicken and other deep-fried Filipino delicacies from my favorite restaurant Max’s to take home and devour with the rest of the clan.

On our way out of the restaurant and onto the main street, the full moon was out, luminous, glorious and bright. We were so at awe with it. I sighed. Then Papi turned to me, pointed at the full moon and said “That’s for you, Mamai. Cause it’s your birthday today.”

Sweet, huh? :)
