2nd of a trilogy: waiting and enjoying life’s goodness

time element on the last day of the aliwan fiesta was very important to me so i could maximize my being there.

remember, i had already missed this affair three times.
as regards the parade, i had missed it for five times. if not for the advent of technology and proliferation of blogs, i wouldn’t be updated of this fiesta which anyone can go to even without being invited.
so, every activity must be timed.
we had to be conscious with our stall hopping. we made sure we did not tarry there, that’s why we were able to spend time cooling ourselves in the shade, realizing dream poses, and eating our late lunch at mang inasal.

ready for the parade at 3 p.m.
refreshed, feeling full and ready for the parade
we went out of the diner at almost four o’ clock already.
late isn’t it?
why?
my niece, who proceeded to the quirino grandstand so that she could get good shots of the contingents, updated me via sms that the parade had not started. meaning to say, the organizer was not able to follow the published sked of leaving the assembly area at 3 p.m. well, this isn’t unusual in the philippines. hehehe…
with this development, the three of us had to look for a spot now where we could do the waiting. as we started walking toward the ground in front of the cultural center of the philippines (CCP), i  remembered my husband  reiterating over the phone that we should not be late in going back to las pinas city. i quickly blocked it because it might change my mind in patiently waiting for the parade to reach our place.
i looked at my watch. it’s almost five in the afternoon. my niece texted again informing me that she had already decided to start walking toward ccp complex to be with us. originally, her plan was to join the parade while taking photos but impatience had already got into her.
and so the moment tintin reached us, we had to find a way to entertain ourselves while waiting.
here is our ALIWAN version at its best!

ting! the colorfull and productive  waiting was finally over as we heard the siren heralding the arrival of the first float.
were we bored?
nah!
we are four individuals who would never allow this kind of glitch spoil the fun.

for me, it was one great moment with my sister, niece and son. besides, if not for the waiting i wouldn’t enjoy again the feel of the soft carabao grass on my feet as i allowed myself to be barefooted for more than an hour. it was a simple but pure bliss. 

LIFE is really good!
