my oldest cousin jun, and his wife mini have been visiting our family here in vancouver. last night, we all gathered together for a send off dinner before they continued their trip down to california and new york. we rarely get everyone together all at the same time, (there are over 50 of us cousins, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, etc.), but when we do, it is an always guaranteed good home cooked filipino food and a good time to catch up.

what amazes me is that though it has been ten years since i've seen jun and his wife, that it is always like no time has passed -- i've been so bad at keeping in touch. it's true that nobody loves you, faults and all, like your family.
