Joe, 大丈夫!!

This kid sa camp nga nakapatrigger sa akong mga childhood memories.

You know what? The moment his father tapped my back and mentioned to look after his kid because he knows that his kid is shy at first, i then knew nga makarelate ko aning bataa. Ug tood man, mao jud akong nafeel the whole camp sa iya. I feel na noon nga dapat nako sha istoryahon para icomfort sha.

Shy kid. Gatan-aw sha while others are playing pero nagasmile sha and was actually enjoying kung unsa iyang ginatan-aw. I wonder ngano dili sha makautter sa words nga let me join. I would normally say “lisod ba na”? And then I realized, ang ana man diay ko sa una. And Yes, lisod jud sha.

I know the feeling. Kanang magtan-aw lang ka nga naglipay lipay ang ubang bata and nagasmile ra pud ka gatan-aw pero di ka ka join because of reasons nga ikaw ray nakabalo. I feel you Joe. There is no need to feel sorry about yourself. I know the feeling of being in a crowd and yet you don’t feel that you belong.

So I always make sure to look after him and talk to him about anything. I knew nga iyang favorite animal kay gorilla, iyang favorite place is disneyland more than disneysea and Universal Studios. Nakaadto shag USJ pero sa Singapore and not sa Osaka. Iyang favorite ride kay Indiana Jones. Pareho mi ganahan ug roller coaster. And kabalo sha mag-english. Iyang father kay maayo kaayo moEnglish oe, nashakira pud ko. So I was expecting siya pud and I was not disappointed.

And when the boy smiled, I can see pure innocence sa iyaha. I remember my innocence. #charlang. Kanang before the world took it away from me. haha. Di man pud guro ni sha bayot guro no.. lels. Pero mao to.. taga tan-aw nako niya kay makaremember ko sa akong childhood.

At the back of my mind i said: Paningkamot jud dong! Taas pa kag panahon.

Right now, I can’t say that I’m good at joining new crowds, specially if ako lang isa. Naa gihapon koe feeling of being rejected and so I keep my distance and become indifferent. But I can say that i’ve been better now than before. So much better. Matod pang Cheripit my friend,”I’m shy but I can deliver when a task calls for it”

My friends will know that I’m a crazy loud person, pero sa kanang mga tao nga acquainted lang or a new crowd, they would think Im so serious and snob. In short, I am only crazy when I am in my own crowd.

And then back to Joe, niana si Azu nga ang papa diay ni Joe kay Police. I was like ngano kabalo ka? hahaha. And murag big deal kaayo sa iyaha. Mashock man pud ko aning Joe. Basin mapusilan diay ko ani sa iyang Papa.

And then sa end of the camp, nagbyebye na mi. And i saw someone picked him up, a lady which I assumed is her mother wearing a very beautiful embroidered laced dress with striking aura. And I was like, dato man guro kaayo ning bataa. Hahaha Mao diay guro natuyok na ni niya tanang Disney places and nagsingapore pa ang family para  mag Universal Studios.
