Good idea

I recently realized that I earlier circulated a picture of my porch instead of the intended picture of my entire house here in Thailand. I figured that in correcting the error, it might be a good idea to show the range of living conditions that I have experienced here. The differences certainly show that I have some things to be thankful for this holiday season.

You see, from early September until the last week of October, I lived with a local Thai family. They were extremely sweet and gracious people, but their living conditions were "difficult" by Western standards. I was given the entire second floor of the family home while everyone else slept together in the same bedroom downstairs. No amount of protest from me (when I finally learned how to protest in Thai) would change this arrangement.

miss your family

Every time that you miss your family or friends, sister and brother all you have to do is look at the picture because every time that I miss my friend all I have to do is look at their picture’s. I know some times looking at the picture is not enough but we don’t have enough choice to look too. Calling in our country is so expensive and we don’t have money to pay every month for long distance so it’s better to look at the picture if you miss your love ones they don’t cost you anything. So if you have time always take picture because we don’t know if we got separate each other.

squeak

We are wondering why our floors squeak my husband thought that our floors have termite’s damages. So now we are planning on how to stop the squeaky on our floors. We hope that there are no termite’s damages on our floors because if that happen we have a big problem. Because right now we don’t have enough money to hire a contraction worker or to buy a hardwood floor if need. We have so much project in our home I hoped that we can find a cheapest way to stop the squeak on our floors.

Burma

Here’s some picture in Burma just like Thailand Laos and Cambodia. It has lots of temple that I never saw in our country.

flower of the day.


Hi guys how are you today. The weather today is beautiful but I’m not in mood to go out outside. I’m just searching what the most beautiful flower of the day. And I found this flower they occasionally form after the season's first heavy freeze kills a small plant. Even though the leafy matter is dead, the root system continues pumping water up through the stem -- by capillary action. When water reaches ruptures in the stem it leaks out and freezes instantly.

Have a great Tuesday!.


It’s always good if you have handy camera because if you can see any interesting that you want to take picture you can do it right away. Look at this menu I was surprise of their price so I took picture so that I can tell to my friends or show this picture how expensive they are. I know a lot of people can afford this price but it is too much if I compare to our money in the Philippines. Anyway its 7; 56 AM local time hope you guys are doing great.

hello guys

I was not so busy today just watching TV with kids and now thinking what’s for dinner I think Pilipino food because I don’t enough ingredients for Thai food recipe. It’s been raining this morning and my husband was busy so I just stay in our bed most of the day. Maybe tomorrow we go to Thai market early in the morning because less traffic. I hope we can stop by at the Pilipino market too so that I can have some Pilipino food and other product from Philippines.

Thinking while ironing.

While I’m ironing this morning I was thinking the best bussiness in our small town is to own a small digital photo shops that way my sister and brother can help me to manage. I don’t need to pay somebody to manage my own small bussiness there in our small island. I know it expensive to have this kind of machine and I must be careful or think a hundred times. If I need to trust my sister and brother to operate this kind of machine or maybe I need to higher somebody. For the first two to three month we will see this is only my thought while I’m ironing. But I think that’s a good idea to have a small bussiness there in Cabucgayan were my sister and brother live right now. Anyhow that is all for now my daughter is a wake now. I need to make something for her until next time.

English camp memorable moment.

English camp is the most memorable moment when I was in Thailand. There so many activities while you are in camp they keep you busy either you will dance or play and singing karaoke. I think Thailand and Philippines is similar culture we do English camp all most every day when I was there. I was really enjoying most of the time when I was in Thailand. The kids are nice and sweet they learn every quick. Most volunteer techs to the Thai student Basic English on how they pronounce. And sometimes we bring some material that can help to Thai children. I think every lesson that we teach to the Thai student is very simple. We consider not using the difficult words to them because just like me they are only learning on how to speak English. Before we start teaching to the Thai student we give them a nice presentation like dancing or singing. So here some picture that I took while they are dancing (som tam papaya) is a famous Thai dish while they are making on this salad they are dancing I think is cool.

Cornfield.

I just miss my father when I saw this cornfield. Because when I was there in the Philippines my father was planting corn and when I call couple month ago my father said he need somebody to help him harvest the corn and I said oh! Really that’s good you don’t need to by rice. And I told my father maybe one of my sister husband can help him harvest so that he don’t need to pay somebody to help him harvest the corn.

tripod


Today I was taking picture of our children and I was thinking to buy a new Tripod. Because the tripod that my husband bought couple years ago is not working fine. And I need to replace so that I can take more picture of our family. And I guess tripod and digital camera is an excellent gift for my family there in biliran Philippines for Christmas and it is easy to transport.

Life

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't anymore.
No more hugs,
no more special moments to celebrate together,
no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes,
what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say
"I love you."
So while we have it,
it's best if we love it,
care for it,
fix it
when it's broken and=2 0
heal it when it's sick.
This is true for marriage...
And old cars..
And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, family and aging parents and grandparents.
We keep them because they are worth it,
because we are worth it.
Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are=2 0just some things that make us happy, no matter what.
Life is important,
we only have one,
we only have one mom,
one dad,
one unique brother or sister or one special friend.
I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way. Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers" in your life, including the person who sent it if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?
I was thinking....I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.
Let every one of your friends and family know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do.
And just in case GOD calls me home .
I LOVE YA!!!
