While our family waits to celebrate the Christmas Eve of 2013, me and my monster “pamangkins” (nieces and nephews) along with Nengkoy, of course, did a little photoshoot.
We tried remaking the photo of a happy, naïve and innocent picture shot at the exact spot MORE THAN TWENTY years ago. My “kerengkeng” nieces and a nephew in this photo were the first batch of grandchildren of Nengkoy.
Complete with white ribbons, red shirt, white blouses, and green shorts the exact pose was recreated. What made me laugh hard about doing this photo is when my nephew Denden was dirtying his knees for the shoot since it’s so apparent in the original photo that his knees were super “dungis” (soiled).
These photo made me realize that when we were innocent children, we seldom think of the future. This innocence lets us free to enjoy ourselves. It also made me think that growing up is actually not a bad thing at all. Because it allows us to make a difference in the world, to find out who we are and to live the life we imagined as children…
Grabeng tuhod ‘yan! Ang dungis!!!
