Biboy Arboleda and I have been friends for more than a decade now, often I would hear his stories about his mother, Mamang Cely who lives in New York. The groovy kind of Mom, Mamang is the type who goes out to smoke and exchange banter with her children's friends. This year, she decided to come home for Christmas and stay for good. It was happy news for all of us.
There is nothing like a mother's warm embrace, no matter what age you are. This Christmas, Biboy is truly home.
