Hot and humid in the Philippines

It really is hot and humid. I take a bath, and I’m not even out of the bathroom, yet my skin already feels sticky. Wilted rose It’s hard to put on cosmetics coz my face feels sticky too, but it’s allright. One thing , I don’t have to rub any body lotion coz my skin is naturally moisturized with sweat. He heOpen-mouthed smile 

Oh, yeah, I feel like a rock star. Most of our neighbors already know we’re here so everytime they see us, they’re like, Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! !Smile with tongue out And the older folks are like, Whoa ! How you’ve grown so tall Embarrassed smile and pretty – pretty ! ( Yay! ) And at the mall, it seems everybody ( especially the guys, Smile with tongue out ) is looking at me. Not being conceited, mind you, Wink but my mom and aunt notice it too. Maybe it’s the red streak on my hair ?  Honestly, I’m weirded out. There was even one guy who bumped into another coz he was looking at me while walking past me. Classic …. He he… anyway, it’s really flattering, but it’s strange.

Since we arrived, we’ve had our meals in the house just 2x…… we ate out. I think I’ll gain weight Thinking smile but I try to do push ups in the morning.

Oh, gosh, we went to this place Greehills where tons of trinkets are sold . I’m completely overwhelmed. I couldn’t choose coz everything was so beautiful. My purchases totaled about $ 30 but I swear they’re worth over a hundred in the US. My most expensive haul was a $7 turquiose necklace. I bought a lot of stuff for friends, even for Kamal, my boss, who said she was going to pay for anything that I cared to buy for her. She said she trusted my " taste " and style. . Well ! Hmmph ! She’s rich and I’m her minimum wage employee, so I would not mind accepting payment for that real pearl necklace that a bought .. Oooh, I know, I’ll take pics of my haul.

We;ve been to Mall of Asia, the third largest mall in the world. And it’s huge ! There’s a skating rink right in the middle of it, and when we were there, there were guys playing serious hockey.

I think I still have jetlag. See, it’s 2:34 AM right now and I’m writing a blog. Sad smile I went to bed at around 9 PM, but woke up at 2 AM…. Mom has an appointment at the hospital for some blood test this morning at 7 AM. Cousin Sonia, who is a doctor , is picking us up. She insistes that mom have a blood test for cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Mom is annoyed as it might potentially ruin her vacation. She’s so nervous what the blood test might reveal. She’s like me…. she prefers to be blissfully ignorant.Crying face

Mom is writing down our schedule and appointments. I have some night – outs, Secret telling smileRed roseand several " dates " already scheduled, but with cousins, okay. ? Embarrassed smile

This is all for now. Peace and be happyRed roseRed lips

    The Mall of Asia is huge. I was like wow, when I saw it. Well I am glad that you are having fun, I hope your mothers test comes out well. And just because your "cousins" don’t mean you have to marry them, lol. Well, don’t eat to much now. LOL, did you have the fast food over there?

    Oh, wow ! gee thanks, Kyoki ! But there are so many pretty girls here, and very, very fashionable…. more fashionable than American girls that I see back home, no kidding, including me…. * sigh * I just had to buy the clothes here….. my friends back home are so envious of me, and now they’re so eager to come with me next year when i come back here …. they’re gonna shop to death.
