For me, it was difficult to leave Manila because my family and some of my closest friends live there. I know it is good that they have moved on without me but it is also sad that there are only traces of me left in Manila. It was difficult to see some of my personal stuff in our Pasig home. There were also lots of unfamiliar places and it was not difficult for me to get lost.
I am missing my family and friends. I wish I had met more of them and spent some more time with them.
Despite being thankful to return to Adelaide, Steven wants to return to Manila very soon to see my parents again. He is officially part of the Mejia family.
