THE ULTIMATE COMFORT FOOD: CHICKEN AND PUMPKIN SOUP

When I was young, our village always cooked “Pancit”, “Sopas” and Filipino style Spaghetti. While most kids stood on long queues just to have the famous spaghetti, I was going back and forth until there’s still soup left inside the big casserole.

IF I WERE A TREE.

It is hot and humid.

I am alone at home watching the tree across the apartment. My eyes could not help but look. It is very tall and skinny tree. I see it every time I looked outside. It stood strong in the middle of the thunderstorm, endured the burning heat of the sun, fought against strong wind blows and surpassed dark lonely nights.
