Last Holy Week our entire family packed up and went to our parents’ place in Cavite, a place full of trees and flowering plants and birds. While walking around, my sister Joy saw this empty nest. It was about 9 inches high, and 3 inches across, perched on our bougainvillea.
We took my 5yo niece Lilo to the aratiles tree by the pond, and were able to pick a handful of berries. I must have been in high school the last time I did that! I think it’s one of those things all Pinoy kids should experience.
