February 29, a leap day, an extraordinary day. Considering the special regard this day is held in, I started thinking of extraordinary moments. Those are the times that I hold fast to because I know they will rarely, if ever come again.
Last month I spent a week in the Philippines, visiting my relatives together with my mum. It’s been years since I last was there and yet in a way, it felt like returning home. Even though I don’t speak the local language, there’s this familial bond to my maternal ethnic roots that I grew up with. And of course, I’m grateful I got to spend time with my grandparents.
