I want to Go Home Now! It is Hot in Here!
The whole province of Marinduque is now celebrating the Moriones Festival. The weather is hot and humid. So a few minutes ago Macrine gave a sigh of yearning, "I want to Go Home now, it is hot here and I missed my rib-eye steak". I immediately replied that we have less than 3 weeks of snowbirding left and she should be patient. I then ask what she really miss in US. Here's her list.
*Cooking in an air conditioned kitchen
* Our weekly trip to the Casino and Dinner Out
* Our weekly visit from Carenna and Ditas
The food that she misses are rib eye steak, roast beef, beef stroganoff, and Dungeness Crabs.
In my case, I really miss my 24-hr internet availability using my 48" PC personal monitor. I also missed the tender and juicy steak from Raleighs and the Chili Relleno from El Torito. Besides the above, what else will we miss when we fly back to US in three weeks?
I will miss my Garbens, Orchids, Fruit orchard, the gentle sea breezes and the lovely sunset.
I will miss the papayas, chicos, bananas and mangoes
I will miss my daily walk and exercise along the beach and inside the compound.
Here are a few things that we will never miss in Marinduque
The crowing of the roosters as early as 3:00AM
The barking of the pack of dogs in the middle of the night
The crazy and inconsiderate jeepney and tricycle drivers
The dogs,pedestrians, children and chickens crossing the national road without any warning
The electrical power brown outs and lastly
The heat and humidity of the summer months of April and May
But next year we will back to get away from the winter chills of US ( our main reason for snowbirding)
