When my father was 30 years old, he visited an old friend in a small hospital in the middle of Wales. As he walked through the doors of the ward, he noticed a young nurse and he knew, without even having yet met her, that he would marry her one day.
Two years later he married my mother. She is Filipino and “Mahal Kita” was one of the first phrases my father learnt to speak in her language. It simply means “I love you”.
Every time I use any flowers with the words and brand of Mahal Kita I am reflecting the love of my parents and how they celebrate life, each other and all the events of the year.
