Celebrating Laguna Day...

Every year, I see to it that I go home to my Lola Cayang's ancestral house in Calamba, Laguna to watch the Rizal Day Parade. My look-a-like Lola was gone since 2001, now my cousins Janice and Jonjo live in the old house, and so I still have a good reason to go home. I almost forgot, it's my Lola's birthday tomorrow din pala. But for today it's my Lolo Jose's day... we jokingly call Dr. Jose Rizal "Lolo" because my father's family are really natives of Calamba and Cabuyao, Laguna. I belong to the fourth generation of Januario Fasiolco Virtucio, the third Town Mayor of Cabuyao, Laguna.

Here are some pictures of the parade... TFL!

I grew up here... many childhood memories in this place. I miss my Lola, my favorite Uncle Oboy and my Dad! I'm sure they are here in spirit, celebrating with us...
