Tracing your Roots

have you ever tried tracing your roots? have you ever wondered where you came from? i mean yung mga ancestors mo? ako, i did. kasi wala akong province eh. di ako tulad ni cathy na merong masbate or gretz na merong dagupan. when they’re both in their provinces na kanilang home, nandito lang ako sa manila, sa pasig, na aking home.

i don’t even know kung anong mixture ng blood ko. i don’t really know the roots of my papa. i don’t know yung pinaka province nila, i think it’s paete, laguna. but im not sure with that pa rin. i dont really know where the Adea’s came from. Other than that, I’m CLueless!!! Alam ko my grandmother from my mom’s side, she is chinese that grew up here in the Phil. They moved here from China during the war. Her mom died and her dad married a french girl. so, i have chinese blood pala. haha.

But then, my mom learned something, way back 2002 pa yun eh (kanina niya lang ulit nakwento). She emailed this person na ka-surname namin. Sabi ba naman, hindi niya daw kami relative or something. Na parang ni-steal lang daw yung Hemady sa isang well known family in Lebanon.

anyway, ang story pala nito ay yung great grand father ko, si Farhan, Abu Sharuf pala talaga ang surname niya. He went here in the Phil during the war and he went back to Lebanon to encourage his bestfriend na almost brother na niya kasi since childhood bestfriends na sila, na pumunta dito sa Phil. Tapos, sumama ngayon itong si bestfriend, Camel Hemady (siya totoong hemady) Napagkasunduan nilang Hemady na din yung great lolo ko. Magkapatid na daw sila. etc.

Alam niyo yung Dona Hemady St. in New Manila? Husband niya si Camel. GrandAunt siya supposedly ng mom ko. Pero hindi pala talaga namin kamag-anak itong si Magdalena & Camel Hemady, kasi di pala kami talagang hemady. amp. all along alam ko “greatgrandaunt” ko siya. amp. hahahahahahahaa!!!!!

Pero si mama, yung nakausap nga niyang person, well, a different one, mag-ama na doctors whos based sa US. sabi nun father, na don’t feel bad daw na fake kami or something, na hindi kami kamag-anak talaga. kasi if you think about it, mag-kamag-anak din daw kami dahil isang maliit lang na lugar daw ang place nila, to think na si camel and farhan daw eh magbestfriends pa. halos magkakapamilya na rin daw sila. well, that’s great!!! greatgrandaunt ko pa rin yung si magdalena! hahahahahahahaha!!!!

ito pa.. what’s cool is that sa great grand father ko – kay farhan nagsimula ang lineage ng Hemady dito sa Philipinas. I mean, siya yung nagpalago. amp. ang pangit nun ah. Kasi si Magdalena and Camel didn’t have a child. it’s my greatgrand father farhan talaga ang nagkaron nga mga anak at mga ka-apo-apohang magaganda at ang gagwapo!!!!!!

oh diba? itaas ang bandila ng mga Hemady.. you know, my ancestors ko back there in Lebanon- you should be proud of us carrying your name. Mga Pinoy kami eh. haha. at you know, we’re gonna make you proud, you’ll be proud of me, soon you’ll be proud of Margaux Kryscel Hemady.

teka! bago ko ito i-end. Buti na lang pala naging Hemady ako ano? What if Margaux Kryscel Abu Sharuf ako? Ang panget!!! Baka akalain nila, terorista ako! hihihi!
