Port of Entry - Nostalgia # 51

PhotobucketToday (May 4th) marked the day when I left my home country Philippines. My port of entry was Guam, I arrived there early morning of May 5th.  I was seven months pregnant when I  flew going to Guam.  Luckily Philippines is just a 4-hour flight to Guam.  I was scared to go because that was my very first to to fly alone and it was going out the Philippines, geezawhiz.  Imagine what  thoughts were running in my mind lol.

Since preggy tales is what the theme for this week's Mommy Moments, this will be my  entry too.
These are a the folks that I met in Guam.  Hubby and I stayed there for a couple of days  and then we flew coming here.  I was really tired but what can I do.  Good thing that my daughter was a real trooper.  I was running at the huge  airport in Houston in order for us to catch the connecting flight.  Hubby left me  just so he could tell our flight to wait for us.  That was a flight I could never forget.  The moment I set my feet on the plane, the content of my tummy just came out lol.
Dolly, Yuko, and I.
I have been living here for more than four years, two years in Korea, and I have been away from home for six years.  I miss home!

You haven't been back home in Phil for 6 years now Rose? Akala ko ako lang ang mas matagala hindi pa nakauwi. Been three years now and possibly another 3 years. Hu! Been missing Phil so bad.

Hi Mel, I went home twice already nung andun kami sa Korea, mas mura kasi ang airfare hehehe..

STEF said...

I'm not sure why but I feel you...I'm missing "home". Since I married and moved here with hubby, I feel like the place where I grew up is so far from here but in fact, it's just a ride away. Sabi nga nila, "there's no place like home" and Philippines is your home. Hope you can drop by my site and check out my post too. Thanks and see you around!

Lainy said...

Nakakamiss nga naman talaga yan Rose. There's no place like home pa rin but it's a different story now coz you have built your own home sweet home.

Managed to somehow publish my entry for this week.

Hugs!

Reading your story reminded me of my first flight ever outside of the Philippines and that was when we flew here in the U.S. And even though kasama nami ni Yogi si hubby, sinundo niya talaga kami, I was a bit anxious pa rin. It was a 4 hour flight from Manila to Japan, then 12 hour flight from Japan to Atlanta. Pagdating ng Atlanta, hilo na ako. Hehe.

You are a brave pregnant woman back then, but it's really nice to look back on our experiences that we have gone through when we were pregnant. :)

Yes, going to America was the turning point in your life. It was also an assurance of a better life for your children which you could hardly get in the Philippines. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
