I was born and raised in Antipolo. It is where my parents bumped into each other, got married and began a family. Antipolo has been my comfort zone when I was growing up that’s why every time I visit, I feel renewed. It is like a convenient store where I can just pick up bags of vigor that I save and use to get by in the city’s fast phase living. Energy that’s only good for a month or two. No matter how busy I am, it is a must that I have to come home to refresh.
I had lots of fun memories that I left in Antipolo. Memoirs with my family, friends, closest relatives and most of it – my youth. And that's something no one can ever take away from me.
Antipolo is a part of me. I love that place. Though I've been to the West, nothing compares the feeling of familiarity. And no matter how far these feet will bring me in the future, home is definitely where my heart is. That’s in Antipolo.
