I never really got the chance to apologize to you. After months of carefully planning this trip, I failed to calculate the time properly and the unexpected happened. I ran out of time and I failed to meet you completely. Yeah, we said our hi’s and hello’s but I really wanted to know you more.
I was so ecstatic the moment my foot landed in your town. There were a lot of tourists at that time, just like me, but I didn’t mind them. Since I thought there was still ample time, I tried roaming around the city first. Then I got drowned in a sea of souvenir shops and lost track of time. It was dark before I knew it. My siblings were already calling me to hurry as our bus might leave without us.
Struck with this reality, I tried my best to look for you amongst the crowd of tourists. I wanted to see you more than anything else. Time was too short and I had to go without even saying goodbye.
I really regret not ironing out my plans to see you. I wish I could have stayed overnight in your city. I wanted to feel how wondeful it is to walk along the streets of Calle Crisologo at night less all those people. I know it may sound creepy walking into a ghost town-like street by night but I don’t care. I’d really love to be engulfed by your town’s heritage. I want to be there. I want to feel what it’s like living in your place. I’d love to take a stroll on those cobblestone street with you by my side. I truly want to get to know you more.
I know you are forgiving and I do promise to come back so that we can finally meet. I will definitely give you my undivided time and attention. I hope you’ll still be there waiting for me. I know you will. I hope you will.

na-inlab din ako sa calle crisologo. I stayed there for 2 hours sa tabi lng ng road, i was just alone and was staring at the road, the people and the sky, then some lil kids joined me which made my day. nagsisi ako na i stayed the nxt night sa Laog. I shall return!
Happy Vday Doi! I’ll see you soon! muah
