To celebrate we are leaving Manila for the weekend to go on our last beach trip. Lest anyone think the Philippines or the former Philippine Islands as they used to be called is not exactly a beach resort place, like Florida. To get to any decent beach from Manila it is a good two hours at the earliest. We will be traveling about three hours with friends to a beach resort that will be full of all sorts of adventures I am sure. Hooray.
My body has decided to celebrate its upcoming departure by pretending it has a third parasite. Seriously, you know you are in a developing country when you keep an entire cupboard of stool and urine sample cups in your home for future use. You also know you are in a developing country when you have no qualms blogging about because it is just that normal.
Also I have to point out a few things that make me laugh here:
The use of the word sexy, still. People think the word sexy is synonymous with pretty. This makes things very awkward when they say this to your children. It also is weird when people, whom you are not married to, call you sexy. I have tried to explain this to my maid and driver countless times but they can't stop. So I will adjust.
Apparently when referring to testicles people say eggs. I was really confused for about three minutes the other day.
My daughter claims she speaks Tagalog, she doesn't, but we let her think she does and it cracks us up.
PS Props to my hubby who got a 4/4 in Tagalog. Yay Seth! He really does speak Tagalog, or at least we let him think he does.
