RC's first jeepney ride (Aug 3,2010), we rented this jeep for our personal use that day.
RC's first tricycle ride- Aug 4,2010
Full picture of the trike, this was so early in the morning at a barrio market
bottled Cokes from a sari sari store
Sprite in plastic bag
I picked this background, looks like a squatter's house behind us.
I think the main purpose of my trip was to see our close relatives still living in the Philippines and try to relive the life I had before, I was glad to ride the trike, the jeepney, eat at jollibee's, see familiar places and changes (there was so much changes). I still had some on my list that I was not able to do like try to eat balut, yes I can eat that before as long as the "sisiw" isn't big. I also missed eating street foods like fishballs. I also wished I was able to stay in Manila for awhile, see my old friends from college but that would be tough for RC.
--- and only in the Philippines will I be able to afford a foot spa, full body massage, full body scrub and a simple facial, all for 800 pesos or about $18
