My Tatay

Where is tatay?

Very clever shot. Tatay is hidden talaga. EB at Gerry’s Grill.

And look how serious we were on the first pic. Hahaha

Love u tatay! πŸ™‚ Miss u te melai! At ingat sa pagbalik dyan sa gitnang silangan pakner!


I forgot to put this one kaya singit ko na…

Nakausap ko rin pala si itay kanina! Hahahaha… Nakakatuwa sobra!!!!!!!!

Yun lang πŸ˜‰


Speaking of tatay…

I had a serious talk with my (biological) dad last night during dinner. I told him everything about my love-hate relationship with accounting. I told him how much I want to leave the corporate world and how much I want my life to be simple and stress-free. I told him that had it not for my mom, I would have taken up a different course, etc. etc.

He asked me what I’m doing every night and why I stay up late. I told him about my online life and all. I told him that I am planning to enroll this coming November and I will shift professions.

And guess what??

He said yes!

I love my dad!!!

Naiiyak ako while writing this down. It’s different when you’ve made a decision and your parent(s) is supporting it 100%. I know how much they (my parents, esp. my dad) want a CFO for a daughter. I can’t. I really can’t. I’m not cut out for it. I probably can but I don’t want to. I want to live a bit longer than my mom. I don’t want to die early and not do the things I want to do. And doing accounting for another 5 years or so will kill me. No exaggeration.

I always tell my siblings (when my dad’s fast asleep already) that they need to relieve me of all my duties (financial mostly) when I turn 30. That would be by next year, August 2008. I need to have some time for myself and I believe I should start when I reach the big 3-0. I will travel anywhere I want to, I will do things I dare not try to because I have responsibilities, I will go someplace else and get to know ME a bit more.

This is one of the happiest days of my life πŸ™‚

  • ang daming tatays!

    bait talaga ng itay mo, hi po itay heheh… naki itay na rin.

  • Hi anak, ok yung pic ni Kneeko. You are so lucky to have a supportive father. Bihira yan as parents usually dictate our directions in life. Pero iba ang reality. Spread your wings and fly anak. You dictate your destiny. Like your Dad, your Tatay also wishes you the best. I hope you’ll discover the hidden wonders in your life. Stay happy anak!

  • Kyels

    I’ll support you too Ate Sash!

    Always do what you want in life … Your passion.


  • Good for you, Shassy. Go for the one you love to do most.


  • I can’t access the EB pictures. All I get are two small boxes with an X inside. πŸ™ Anyway, I am glad you had fun meeting Tatay (whoever he is) and other bloggers. Does Tatay want to be incognito? There is freedom kasi in anonymity hindi ba, not to mention a certain mystique .. haha

    I can understand the dilemma you are in … between your family’s aspirations and your own aspiration for yourself. I hope you can find a happy compromise.

    Keep being happy Sasha.

  • By the way, my friend Roly Lampa’s expat tale at my site may be a little longish but its really a moving and splendid story. Give it a chance, okay? Ty ty .. i really want to encourage my friend to write.

  • ay hindi ako kita sa pix!

  • Hi Sasha. Glad you had a nice get together with friends.

    You’re blessed to have a supportive father. Hope you find the best profession suited for you. Good luck and God bless.

  • All the best with your plans to change profession and have fun on learning more about yourself. I hope you will get all the support you need from the rest of your family.

  • Eli

  • Ann

    Wow good for you. You should do just that. You’re in for an exciting 2008 ah. πŸ™‚

  • It’s never too late to go for your dreams, Sashing! Especially now that you have your dad’s full support. I wish you all the best. Seeing what you have accomplished in your blogs, you can definitely attain whatever it is you set out to do. Just give yourself full freedom to do so. Yes!!! πŸ˜€
