Sometime end of September, my friend, Lily C. Fen, got in touch with an offer to write for Roots & Wings, the Filipino quarterly magazine in Europe that was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in August 2009. The prospect of writing while on sick leave is daunting, not only because I haven’t written in a while, but also I was to stay away from anything that’s to elicit stress. It took about three weeks to decide, consulting back and forth with my doctor and a few close friends. In the end, I agreed. One cannot possibly go through life without stress, and I thought that this writing opportunity can jumpstart the writing project I’ve been meaning to put in words.
In this issue, I visited Papa Oro’s Ricebowls and More in Baden and the Fernweh Festival in Bern to support Filipino businesses in Europe and appease my homesickness at the same time.
