I wasn't here last year when my daughter Mika attended her JS Prom. I was still working abroad that time and it's quite impossible for me to be here in the Philippines to witness every important milestone in the life of my kids. What I do is, I normally choose the most important ones like the recognition days and graduation. It was kind of hard for an OFW like me to fulfill my obligation as a Mom since I have a career to look after. Nonetheless, I tried my best to assist them where possible like helping them in their school projects and research works which I could do online. I also remembered to have written a declamation piece for my son when he was chosen to represent their school for a competition. He won second place that time and I was just so proud being able to fulfill my role as a Mom assisting them in every way I can even we're miles apart.
I was truly sad that I was not here to witness Mika's prom in school last year but I took part in choosing the gown that she had worn that night, which I'm glad to have fitted her well.
Mika at Ambyanz salon for her hairdo and make up. She looks quite excited!
I think she still looks like a baby even with her make up on

I'm glad that my son was able to compile his little sister's photos, at least I could still witness how did she look that evening. I think everything was perfectly alright for her. Her dad and "kuya" were both beside her from the time that she had her make up until the time that she had worn her gown down to the party venue, but oopps, they did not join her there of course. I'm very happy though that even when I'm not here that evening, everything works well with her.
I love her dearly and she knows that so well.
