My cousin Ton-Ton, in the middle, who passed his board exams for nursing in the Philippines earlier this year. I have a feeling for why I’m posting this, but the feeling is mostly preverbal right now. Also, I love the color in the photo. (Source: Ton-Ton’s mom (my mom’s sister) in my Facebook feed.

"People are arriving in this whole new alien place in which they had to adjust in all sorts of ways. They’re coming here specifically to make money.
