Belgium has a large Filipino community and I like to put a special lady in the spotlight today.
I have known this cute store in Brussels' Galerie Louise for many, many years and somehow - maybe because I am an earrings person? - it became a habit every time I walk by there, to stop and say hi to the lady who runs "Bleu de Toi".
Originally from the Philippines, Belgium has been home to her for years now. Her daughter has the same age as my son, so we, moms, always have something to chat about and over the years, it became fun to compare notes.
I wish her well and hope her family and friends are safe.
