A Tale of Two Sisters in a Land Far Far Away

family, food

Since last week was our school term break, my youngest sister, Gelli, came over from the Philippines for a holiday. Though I do go back home to visit every year, I don’t have the luxury to spend a lot of time in a day with her. One, she’s already working (feeling old now…hahaha).
