Mamu’s group (Ate Encar, Ate Vicky G. and Ate Merlie T.) was the first to arrive followed by another group of “berks”.
The early birdsOne good thing about our quaint, albeit far, little subdivision is that every occasion, big and small, is celebrated by the community. Just a few weeks ago, Mamu came from a mananita (pronounced as manyanita), a practice where members of the community are serenaded (secretly) on the eve of their 50th birthday.
So it wasn’t really a surprise when almost everyone of Mamu’s berks came in full force to celebrate Ate Mila’s 57th or 60th, the most popular number that came out when asked about her age, not directly from her though, birthday.One group even prepared a dance number complete with costume, colorful wigs and fishnet stockings!
Everybody had fun posing in colorful wigs.
As soon as we were home Mamu told me to upload her photos on Facebook, yes she has an FB account, used mostly for Zuma, Jewel Puzzle and Marble Lines.
The senior citizens of "the Berks" gladly welcomed Ate Mila into their world. Most of the photos are courtesy of Mamu.
