Today is Philippine National Ice Skating Championship at Mall of Asia. My facebook wall is quiet for a while because most of my facebook friends are your ice skating friends and their parents. I would have been busy as well and already having all the jitters and stomach cramps from nervousness and stress. It will be a venue for all ice skaters, competitors and non-competitors, parents and friends to watch and socialize. I couldn't help feeling very sad and remembering you. You, who were so relaxed and confident you would never miss being a part of any competition. I was the one feeling nervous every time you were competing or performing on ice. You're so graceful, so beautiful in your costume.

Ice skating made you strong, competitive, sport and disciplined. It molded your good character. I was right then to have allowed and supported your passion because you Shariita, my baby was truly an ice skater.
