Lucy Torres may pa-tribute sa mga yaya: I remember all of them so well

BINIGYAN ng tribute ni Leyte 4th District Rep. Lucy Torres ang mga naging yaya niya noong bata pa siya.

Napa-throwback ang misis ni Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez sa kanyang Instagram kung saan bidang-bida ang mga naging kasambahay nila noon.

Isang lumang family photo ang ibinahagi ng kongresista sa kanyang IG followers kalakip ang mahabang caption.

“My sister and I with some of our wonderful yayas and helpers, in the sala of our home in Bonifacio Street.

“I remember all of them so well, warmly and very fondly at that,” simulang mensahe ni Lucy.

“From left to right: Yaya Juling was Matt’s yaya, was Mommy’s favorite, too, for sure, she who was never without a funny story [or the animated telling of one].

“She made the best jelly rolls, would cure ham and make tocino and siopao from scratch on any given day. Her apple pie is the best. She stayed on with us till she married her penpal Chris and now lives her happy ever after in Australia.

“In braids is Yaya Conching, my de facto Yaya when my own Yaya Ba left and got married after falling in love with the man who helped her find a monkey I said I wanted as pasalubong. [I don’t know why I even wanted one then. Long and short of it–no monkey, plus I lost my yaya who was so good to me].

“Manang Kessen was Daddy’s cook, from when he was a bachelor till he got married.

“She stayed with us till the day she passed, her grandchildren were our favorite playmates growing up, and her grandchildren’s children are now also the playmates of the youngest generation of children in our family tree.

“Marilyn, the one beside me, was more playmate to us than house girl, was child-like and had the energy for waring-waring and kite-flying during the day, Chinese garter and jackstone at night. She was always happy.

“Noneng and Minda [both in blue] were with us for many years, too, and only left when they fell in love or got married.

“In orange is Manang Basilia, a devout member of the church community my Mom was very active in then, wife to Noy Jorge, one of the trusted farmhands.

“The lady in an orange top was a guest of my Tito Manjo then, Jeanne Young, from the game show Spin-A-Win, and I remember being in awe of how beautiful she looked–like a live doll. She was the reason, I’m almost sure, that we gathered for this photograph in the first place,” pahayag pa ng misis ni Goma.
