After 9 long days of waking up early in bed, at last we've completed the Misa de Gallo in our local church together with my two cousins. For me, it's very hard to wake up early because the mass starts at 4:30 am so I should wake up at 3:30 am. Even though it is hard to do, I still want to do it because it's our tradition and there's an old saying that if you complete the Misa de Gallo, your wish will come true and I believe in that old saying. Because of waking up early, sometimes I fell asleep during the mass or while I'm at work. :)
As a prize for completing the Misa de Gallo, we bought some putobumbong (a local delicacy in the Philippines during Christmas season) and it was funded by me. :) I also want to buy some bibingka (another local delicacy) but it is already sold out.
I hope and I pray that my wish will come true after completing the mass, not for myself but for other people especially the victims of Typhoon Sendong in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro City.
