20 (Tue) December 2016
by my aunt
(see most recently 4.349 Grilled Ribeye)
at their home
with the maternal-side family
Home for the Holidays, Day 1.
In Seoul. Winter break. Going back to Manila on the 31st — can hardly wait.
For 20 years since the passing of their mother in 1994, my mother and her siblings had commemorated the day of her death every year with mass (my uncle is a priest) and meal (by my aunt) . In 2015, my mother called it off, supposedly for good, claiming satisfaction of the requisite 2-decade mourning period. But then she brought it back this year, saying that the family needed a clearly identifiable reason to compel getting together.
But for GMTD, I would not believe that 3 years have passed since my previous post of the occasion.
