Funny how I can still remember it well – my first heartbreak.
I was five, or seven. Mama promised that we’d watch Sarah, Ang Munting Prinsesa together. And inspite of my excitement, I rejected my bestfriend as a company, I felt it was only fair to wait for my promised date with Mama even it’d take three more days for me to wait. So i waited.
The thing was, three days came and there was no Sarah. For the first time, I was disappointed at mother. For the first time, I realized I learned the word tampo.
And just recently, I kinda felt the same tampo again.
