Friday Kwentuhan about Undas

Happy Friday! Happy Long weekend sa iba kasi hanggang Tuesday ang inyong bakasyon! Habang kami ay papasok nung araw na yun. Anyway, sanay na ako I have been working in a Korean company for more than 7 years already so sanay na din.

Kwentuhan muna tayo ng slight about sa Undas. Tara!

When my mom was still living naiiwan lang sya sa bahay dahil nahihirapan sya pumunta noon sa sementeryo para dalawin ang lolo at lola ko (paternal side) yung lolo, lola at dalawa kong tito (maternal side) eh nasa Holy Cross Cemetery naman so superrr layo sa amin atska isa pa sobra ang hika niya so hindi sya pwede sa crowded na lugar tapos mainit pa tapos hirap na din sya maglakad noon e. She stayed lang sa bahay alone. Hindi naman daw sya natatakot sabi nya.

Grabeh na din ang taas ng bulaklak no? Actually, sa last year’s news LAST YEAR ito na presyo ha. Ang presyo ng Malaysian Mums from P120-P200 to P150-P240 while international flowers went up P50 above wholesale price. Eh pano na kaya ngayong taon na ito? Baka mas mataas pa dyan.

Ang dami dami na ding naglalabasan na mga candles. Ako ang ginagawa ko kasi dyan para di ako mabigatan sa budget ay, bago pa mag undas like first week palang ng October bibili na ako ng ilang mga supot ng candles para sa mga kamag anak ni husband at sa mga lolo’t lola ko. Ngayon na si Mommy ay kasama na ng mga lolo’t lola I bought yellow candles for her. Favorite kasi nya ang yellow. We might buy yellow flowers as well, pero I told Daddy not to buy ng sobrang mamahalin na mga flowers kasi ninanakaw lang sa sementeryo at isa pa sinisirain din namin yung flowers I mean, tinatanggalan namin ng petals then yung mga petals sinasaboy namin sa ibabaw ng nitso. So hindi na dapat masyadong mamahalin. #practical

I guess, a year ago we started going to the cemetery on the 2nd day na, Umiiwas kasi kami sa sobrang traffic at sa sobrang dami ng tao. This year ganun din gagawin namin pero we will go there in the morning kasi I need to go to work pa in the afternoon.

nice-dekoideen-candles-yellow-candleLet’s say a simple prayer for our departed loved ones before we leave the cemetery or offer a mass for them. They are still with us… in spirit. They are guiding us from up there.

I have a very simple prayer… say it with me.

Lord,

We pray for our departed loved ones. Please embrace them with your undying love and peace.

I asked this through your son Jesus and through the intercession of our holy mother Mary. Amen.
