We weren’t supposed to be doing anything on the morning of this year’s Black Saturday, but my cousin, Daia, insisted that we wake up early and go to the beach.
I think that every Filipino, even the ones who live inland, has a childhood beach: that beach where your whole family would go by the truckload or convoy to swim and relax; that beach where you would learn how to swim with your siblings and cousins; that beach where you would pick up fragments of shells to take home; that beach you have one or a dozen childhood memories of.
My childhood beach is found along the coast of the Lingayen Gulf, in the town of San Fabian, Pangasinan.
Over the sea, under the ground.
