no, i don’t have a fungal infection or any communicable disease.
it’s just that being holed up for a year and you get tired of your surroundings pretty easily. i mean kahit pa magpalit ka ng kapitbahay, yung sa paligid na nakikita mo, iyon at iyon pa rin, magsasawa ka talaga.
kaya nga naimbento ang vacation diba? para may iba naman sa paningin mo. may ibang karanasan kang maiku-kuwento. hindi yung araw-araw mong pagpunta sa palengke. (ok, fine. yun lang lagi kinukuwento ko ngayon… at kung gaano kamahal mga bilihin! my goodness!!! i’m really starting to sound like my mom!)
huling bakasyon namin ay photo-finish, ika nga. it was the last few weeks air travel was allowed. muntik na kami ma-lockdown sa Japan! (yes, dream come true ito! pinag-ipunan nang malupit!) while A was a bit on the panic-y side, i had chosen to stay calm. (but deep inside, my mind was calculating how much it would cost to live in japan for a month or two) we were in luck since the PH embassy in Japan was in Osaka, i thought. mas madali kung saka-sakali man.
but thank goodness there was no need for that. we just got in-time before attractions closed. (yep, we were in USJ just a day or two before they closed it!)
i remember watching Abe on TV and had google translate what he was announcing… A may not have noticed this. hehe. i just wanted assurance that all is still safe in Japan then. back then, the northern parts of Japan were most hit. southern areas like Osaka had far fewer cases.
at nakauwi pa naman kami ng Pilipinas. walang symptoms or anything. nakapasok pa ako ng ilang araw at nakapag-plano para sa what we thought was a temporary quarantine… na naging parang Ang Probinsyano na sa tagal.
and here we are again, after a year… with itchy feet, wanting to travel but can’t.
