Meet my neighbourhood, Laaksolahti.
Imagine being born on the other side of the planet to a place without winter and ending up living in a realm of snow. That’s magic.
I don’t know what’s with this place but it feels like I was born to be part of it. You see, some six years ago, back in the Philippines, I was randomly assigned to a workplace in this exact place out of the many potential slots around the greater Helsinki region. Also, in the frozen lake shown in this video is where I saw the northern lights for the first time in my life. I may have lived in more than a few flats in Vantaa and Espoo, but it is in here where I have finally found the one I can call my own home.
