My ‘happy place’ used to be a particular coffee shop where I enjoy my favorite cappuccino with a choco stick. Then, it became a bar in Makati which I prefer going in the mid afternoon just for their dessert – Chocolate Lava Cake. And then, it became a far away cliff where I would start with a relaxing long drive early in the morning and spend a relaxing midday with just my pen, paper, and the sun… Oh and of course, my chocolate & strawberry ice cream to cap off the trip. Now, I realize, my happy place is where I spent 30 years of my life… My home and my family- no sweet dessert needed.
