More than two years ago, I launched the Missing Carlo blog. Those who really knew me way back surely knows that most of my blog entries in my Livejournal and i.ph blog is all about my brother Carlo. He left the country in February 2008 and went to England with Ate Virgie.
He’s with my mom now and to be honest, it took me quite a while to move on. I am used to leaving home with his smiling face while giving his ‘pabilin’ and going back home with him checking my bags and scouting for pasalubongs. He gave me the most sincere hugs and kisses ever and he was my human teddy bear.He is now studying in a special school and I am so happy because in a span of two years, my brother really improved a lot.
I rarely chat with them thru Skype and I am guilty about it. My mom bugs me everytime to have a webcam session with them but I reject her at times because I’d rather do other things (bad me!).
Gosh, my brother is so big now! His voice is just different from before. I am now talking to a ‘man’. I feel bad that I missed that stage in his life, but I am also grateful because obviously, he is doing better now. Letting him go is the best decision. I truly loved him and I want him to grow as an independent young man. I am happy that he is doing well now.
When I bought this domain (MICAMYX.COM) last September 2008, I can’t really recall if I wrote a blog entry about him here. I think I wrote everything at Missing Carlo, but never here. I think I focused on myself too much in the past two years and I became busy finally enjoying my independence. I consider it as a reward as well, because I now have a time for myself – my wants, my needs. I was able to work in two good companies and i get to travel a lot. I am enjoying the perks of being single and independent while my mom and brother are learning and adjusting with their new life in England.
I am seriously planning of going to England for a vacation this November. I know that it is a very ‘expensive’ idea, but hey, I haven’t spent my holidays with them for quite a long time! I also want to take lotsa pictures taken from England with love. I also want to build my very own snowman and just simply hangout at home with my mom, my baby brother and Ate Virgie.
While Mama and I were chatting earlier, she kept on asking me questions about my Facebook account LOL. She kept on asking me about my activities and in a way, I can feel that she is proud of me 🙂 I am proud of her too, because she looks way more hotter now compared to before 😛 My brother is already a man and I even asked him to show his kili-kili on webcam. We also sang our short duet with Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape. I’m glad he recognizes that song still. I love my brother so much and i would have pinched him on the cheeks if I was beside him. Grrrrr i’m still in a gigil mode right now!
So that’s it. I just feel like sharing these details to you all because I really miss Carlo. Of course, I miss my mom too, but I miss my Carlo more 😛
I am really serious with the Christmas in England thing. One of the ways that you can help me accumulate funds is if you’d vote for The 12th of June at YourIndieFilm.com’s site. The cash prize can be used for my transportation and lakwatsa moments with my family. I am also working hard on some of my blogs and I’ll try to save up as well. I can do this! 😀
Thank God for creating small brothers!
I can share my small bro Orman anytime with you mica in case you really, really miss Carlo.
He can be a bitch sometimes though…. but a lovable huggable bitch.
Cheers! HOpe you nail that London trip! 🙂
Sama mo ako sa England if you win the prize! lol
