New Year's Eve is approaching quickly and we are preparing for the celebration by stocking up on spherical shaped foods (for luck), spaghetti (for all Filipino special occasions, adult beverages & champagne (a global tradition), and music. Rose is practicing her guitar and hopefully after a few short lessons, she will be able to play us a recognizable tune.
Fortunately, we will not have freezing temperatures like my friends are experiencing in the USA. I was shocked to see 0 degrees (-15C) in my home town in Ohio. Like I mentioned, we are fortunate to have nice weather - warm weather where I can wear shorts and t-shirts year round. I love this weather.
Speaking of the weather. The recent weather (2 typhoons in 7 days) ended up somehow making me sick (sore throat and cough). Rose's father prepared me slices of fresh pineapple. I must say, Rose's family from the jungle is talented with knives. They can weild a machete or a short blade with precision and speed. I mean my pineapple looked like a work of art from a Royal cruise ship. Yummy. But what I found amusing was that, even though they are masters with machetes, they don't really grasp the understanding of the fork and spoon. Instead, it's using the fingers. So, not wanting to be like everyone else in this tropical paradise, I have adopted their practice as well. And it's Fun! Eating now is like being a kid. Just another reason for me to love living here. Island Life is Awesome!
