I recently got a chance to catch up with a high school friend through Facebook. He and his family are based in another country. When he learned that I am in Winnipeg, he asked a few questions about my location, “Where is Winnipeg? There are a lot of cities in Canada, why did you choose there?”
Allow me to share with you the things that I miss in the Philippines. Yes, I have enumerated a number of things that made us decide to finally move here and probably stay here ’til we grow old, but being here for less than a year and being a Filipino at heart there are still things, places, foods or activities that I miss seeing, going to, eating or doing.
While I was browsing posts shared by my friends in Facebook, I chanced upon a post shared by a friend that really made me smile as it brought so much happy childhood memories to me. The post I am referring to was about the return of Christmas on Display (C.O.D.) in Cubao (Quezon City, Philippines).
