- My Middle Name
My middle name 'Ebanculla' (Pronouncing the 'n' as 'ng') For me is the greatest twist to being who I am.
People would always wonder what my race really is. I look Chinese but I'm a bit dark to be one then I'm a bit too light to be a typical Filipina-I look strange and growing up was hard when you look like you can't be 'categorized'...and I won't forget those oh so 'nice' comparisons my Chinese teachers did to me with my sister who's so 'radiantly' Chinese in skin. It's something that I found hard embracing growing up and it took a LONG while.
The truth is I'm not just Chinese and Filipino. I'm also part Spanish. I'm proud of my roots and I'm happy I get to be born in the Philippines; having my surname Chinese and my middle name in Spanish. All 3 of my main identity in my full name. What is more to ask?
Then if ever they'll doubt how come I become Spanish without having round eyes. I'll just say 'check my middle name, babe^_~V' I don't mind them not believing for God knows it. He knows it better than I do, maybe he knows I have more than 3 roots running on my veins. Though I really don't care what other people would say. Whatever my middle name should had been. I'll just be happy with what I have.
I'm just really happy for the fact I was born in this world and get to live a life.
