Pasiyam is a filipino culture done nine days after the death of a loved one. My Aunt’s was yesterday and our family gathered in prayers for the repose of her soul. After which, a sumptuous dinner followed. I just wish I was there to celebrate it with them.

And then another distant family member died. She’s our Grandfather’s sister. We’re going to visit her wake any time this week and I hope to meet other distant relatives. It’s not a shock this time since she’s old and she deserves to rest.

May her soul rest in peace.
