Yes, you read it right. Ako’y isinali by my mom-in-law in their village Santa Cruzan as the Reyna de los Angeles (Queen of Angels) last May 3. And I could still fit into my wedding gown with room to spare! Hooraah! (Bawal huminga, though.).
Disclaimer: I was never part of any ‘sagala’ before. Being one of the Reyna-something in Flores de Mayo isn’t really in my bucket list before I hit my big 3-0. 😀 I was actually to shy to parade because I thought I was too old for this. Apparently in this Santacruzan, all the Reynas were married women. I was the youngest Reyna there.
