Migrating to UK

My late Mom has three sisters. Among the four, Mama's the youngest.  My three aunts have been in and out of United Kingdom for as long as I can remember. 

It was Aunt Celing, the eldest, who first migrated in UK back in the 80s. Five of her six children are all based in UK too. Only Ate Annie stayed in the Philippines to tend to her business and properties, but she too have stayed in UK for years.  

Second to migrate in UK is Tita Nor. Her son, Norman and his family are all based in UK also.

Tita Be on the other hand goes to UK for leisure and business. She goes there every now and then when she's not too busy with her businesses here in the Philippines. Her kids have been to UK too many times. Kuya Alex and Ate Joji are also based there.

My aunts used to convince Mama to come and join them in UK. Mama refused to leave her 6 children behind. Then she passed away in 1996, at 43. 

So it's natural for me to think that UK is the next best country that I will live in because I have many relatives there. A few months (hoping for a few weeks actually) from now, my family will be migrating in UK. 

Shirts were hand-painted by my sis, err, daughter, Julia.

Ooops, wait, let me clear it out. I'm not pertaining to UK as in United Kingdom, where my aunts and cousins are living. I'm talking about Kalentong. Yes, Kalentong, as in Kalentong St., Mandaluyong City because that's where my family's property and business is located. John and I have call our place United Kalentong, UK for short. Think of it this way -  it's time, energy and saliva saving to say UK instead of Kalentong, right? Am I making sense? I don't think so. Well, that's just my point, life's too short to be so serious. Enjoy and have a great 2014 ahead, Happy New Year to all!!!
