Jodi Sta. Maria was hit by a wave of nostalgia after seeing one of her childhood photos.
The 39-year-old actress uploaded it on Instagram last night, July 17, 2021, and recalled how happy and breezy her life was back then.
In the caption, she wrote, "This photo brings back so many memories from my childhood.
"Yung pakikipaglaro sa mga kapitbahay tatakas ako pero kahit mapagalitan sa pag-uwi okay narin.
"Do you remember touch taya? 10-20? Or yung plastic balloon na bawal bumagsak sa lupa pag napalobo mo na?
"Have you waited for the corn vendor shouting mais…mais…at si manong na nangongolekta ng dyaryo at bote kapalit ay chichirya?
"I also looked forward to rainy days where we were allowed to run around soaking wet.
"Our childhood plays a big part in who we are today.
"The simple joys, the contagious laughter, and the mini adventures have taught us that it takes very little to have a happy life [heart emoji]."
