It wasn’t special. This too shall pass.
When I look back I’ll see how strong I become from this experience.
This time I had potatoes, white bread, and rice – I know all carbohydrates. But that’s all the available food in our kitchen and I’m too tired of biscuits.
I remember all the starting point of these foods. Like a rice farmer, I never got the chance to experience rice farming but I have heard all the hardships of one farmer. The span of six months to grow rice and be able to put it on the table of other people because some of them would rather eat sweet potato or corn as its cheaper than the rice they grow for six months. The saying somehow real “ako ang nagsaing iba ang kumain.”
Then came by potatoes, where does in the Philippines it came from, the province? Or maybe we export it like any other products. But I like potatoes whatever its type of cooking. There is comfort in every bite of a potato. I was thinking if I can grow it in our backyard.
