This is the first time I’ve been home in three years, and despite having a lot of things change, there are also a couple of things that I’m glad has remained the same. 

My family, that is living in three different states, decided to all come home together to celebrate mine, my nephew’s and my mom’s birthday. In the two weeks that we are all back in the homeland, we’ve managed to spend every single day in the places we loved, with the people we loved.

I am very grateful to have been given the chance to be back to see all these changes, and enjoy the nostalgia of what has remained the same, it made me realize how I should keep coming home as much as possible.

Until next time, Philippines.
