Only there

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

I bet you have made the most of bonding with your relatives back in the Philippines, look at the coke bottles =) And RC would have been fascinated in the trike and jeep rides. I remembered how my son is so excited (soooo happy, that is) of rain back home in Baguio because he doesnt experience it here in the desert.

Missed ko na rin ang murang facial dun, Ces at sumakay ng jeep and tricycle.

How did RC take it all? Nagustuhan ba niya lahat?

Looks like you had a nice time. I miss visiting the Philippines. My last trip was back in January. My husband and I are working on immigration right now to get him to the USA. But if it doesn't go fast enough I will probably go back late next year.
