Nanny Diary

During the same time I was in Megamall having my clothes altered, I got a missed call and later on a text message from an unrecognized number. It turns out it was my first ever yaya!

It's the first time I heard from her after about 13 years. She left when I was in 4th grade.

It's good to know she's doing very well. She has two kids now and a Spanish boyfriend---and she can speak his language.

Apparently, she's now based in Cebu. She's on a vacation with the boyfriend and visited my parents at home then got my and my sister's numbers from them.

She expressed how happy she was being able to see my folks again and thankful that she reconnected with us after all these years. It was really touching. I may get to see her soon.


  1. I was in Boracay with friends once and we tried this cool German restaurant when a lady who looks like an exotic colored model hailed my name. In my surprise, she was our former maid. She married a German and they own the resort. And she also speaks his language introducing me to him.

    Moment! Kaya libre kami! Bongga sya!

  2. OMG! That's funny! Hahah... The yaya is the new cinderella!

    The former yaya I'm talking about is currently in Boracay with her boyfriend!

  3. Minsan napapaisip ako, pwede rin ba akong maging yaya? Tapos Italian naman jowa ko. La lang, nilabas ko lang.
