Family reunion Filippino style


By Yasmin Concepcion


Family reunion in the Philippines at the Camayan Beach Resort. G


etting off the plane and walking through the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, I went through so many different feel- ings, but it was the familiarity that


hit me first. Te recognizable sounds and smells brought back many memories. It had been seven years since I last walked through those halls with every- thing I owned and a promise of a better life in Canada. Like the other Filippinos on that plane who were visiting their home- town after a long absence, the excitement was palpable. Family means everything to me and leaving them


thehubwinnipeg.com How to get there


Flights are available from Winnipeg via Vancouver direct to Manila; or via further stops in Taipei, Hong Kong and Beijing.


to go live in another country was one of the hardest deci- sions I have ever made. In some ways it’s been a good decision because I am able to help out in ways that I couldn’t have if I had stayed there, but getting to see them again after a long seven years, meeting four new nephews for the first time, and just spending time with them was the best possible way to wrap up my 2017. From my family’s point of view, it was as though I had never left, but I did notice some differences. In my family, we liked to joke that everything is voice-activated as in “do this” or “do that.” Tere are always someone to help
