⭐ In between my short stories I would like to share some personal highlights in life.
I am going to the Philippines in June for one whole month! Together with my niece Kayleigh and aunt Rowena. I’m so excited la, la, la, (and I just can’ t hide it)!
It has been 17 years , since I last visited this beautiful land of islands. My mother is half Philippina-half Indonesian, and I am in blood 75% Philippina. I’ m also American, since I was born there. Though in heart I am Dutch: my father is Dutch and I have lived here for most of life.
As a 5 year old, visiting the Philippines, I don’ t remember a lot. I remember young ducks and cute puppies. I remember mosquito nets and the good food made by my grandmother Gloria. My aunt, niece and I are planning to visit her and my ‘Lolo’ (grandfather) Maurits for the first week of our stay.
The other weeks we will be travelling all across the Philippines. Including a short retreat at one of the most beautiful Islands: ‘Boracay’ .
Man…. I am looking forward to this trip!
I thank God that for my recently discovered writing skills. Or at least I hope everyone who reads my short stories enjoys them. It has been almost a week now since I started this blog, and I still have plenty of inspiriation to write more.
If you have any ideas or tips for me that you would like to share, feel free to do so!
#3 Silvia: ‘Iron Lady’
Personally I am glad that my other ‘grandmother’ is doing well. She has had a brain seizure and my family and I thought God had decided it was time to bring her home. But he probably has heard my prayers and gave her more time here, with us. And I am thankful He did 🙂
That was it for now. I hope you enjoy my writings, for there is plenty more to come 😉
