Grandson's Pursuit

Sep 15, 2018

On the top of a secluded mountain in Zamboanga stands a small house where a small family composed of three children and a married copule—Nanay Menang (60s) and Tatay Chimong (60s)—happily reside. While growing up, Joseph witnesses how his old parents strive hard to provide for them. Being the youngest, Joseph is treated like a baby by Menang and Chimong. He is either strapped to Menang’s skirt each time she picks up coffee seeds or is side-by-side with Chimong when the latter’s working in the copra farm. But as young Joseph roams the mountain, he would hear a neighborhood rumor: he is an anak ng kawayan. Clueless Joseph would shrug at it while Nanay Menang bravely defends his little prince from gossipers. At night, Joseph will lay down on his Nanay Menang’s lap as she tells him stories saying that she once died and had the opportunity to talk to San Pedro who told her, whenever someone mocks and bullies you, smile and laugh at them so you can enter his gates. And from that day, Joseph holds Menang’s story dearly.
