Entry Description

Home, it’s always a very special place for me. Home is not only about strong endearments; instead it is life's undress rehearsal. It’s a place with tons memory, laugh, love, respect and blessings. All of us have a home that we preserve in our hearts; the perfect, the safest place full of love and acceptance. Home means family, friends, country even God. It’s about our connectedness to each other and that’s the home we share as well as our cultural bond.
