yup! that's my mommy.
i think she was seventeen here and the year was 1961.
this was taken during the holy week celebration called santa cruzan
and because my mom was one of the hot babes in their barrio (village)
[i can almost see my inang - grandma
frowning down on me with the language : p]
she was always asked to be santa elena which would roughly be the equivalent of prom queen.
but i'm sure she'll agree when i say
mom, you were beautiful then
even made more beautiful by the bond i now have with you called
i love you, mamay.
happy mothers' day!
