A leisure walk inside UP Diliman campus. Every time I go home, my sisters and I make it a point to drop by here. To be away from the hustle and bustle congested Manila. To take a breath of fresh air. To visit the College of Social Work and Community Development. To take note of anything new. To see what has changed inside the campus. To eat the same old street foods (that I MISS so much!): fish balls, kwek-kwek, banana cue, manggang hilaw, and drink sago’t gulaman. Although, UPLB is my alma mater, Diliman plays a special place in my heart where I split my time between work, studies, travel and field practicum. Oh memories! Little did I know that when I was about to complete my field practicum and going to start my thesis in my master’s program – I would find myself leaving my comfort zone and with a sudden blink of an eye – I am in a fancy land. As my friends call it. Singapore.
From that day onward, my life has changed forever.
