After spending the past six months in the US after having to extend her family vacation because of the lockdown, Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio along with her husband Joseph and sons Philip and Manu finally returned to the country in the early hours of September 5, Saturday. The 39-year-old actress shared a photo of herself at the airport with her youngest son. 

She wrote:

“A love note to Manila, 4:30 in the morning.


“Hi, Manila. We arrived softly on this rainy morning. You are still sleeping, just like my toddler. See you later when we wake up.

“Already prepared myself by admitting that I will probably not like your inconveniences, will perhaps feel a little more hassled than usual, and make me want to fly back to where we came from.

“But you are the place of our calling. And sometimes, I mean many times, calling is not a matter of our choosing, it isn’t decided according to where we might feel the most comfort in life. It is where God ascertains the geography of our unique mission and story. This nation needs me as much as I need her. For my own humility, sanctification, and more. (And her? She might just change because of me. Or because of my children.)

“So, hello, we meet again. Thank you for welcoming my family back with a little bit of rain. Maybe this is an agreement? To be a little gentler to one another this time around?”
