One of the nice things as an American living in the Philippines is the variety of new things to eat and drink. Just recently I have had a few opportunities to eat squid. Once was in a seafood salad, and the other two times were plates of sizzling squid, one spicy and the other not. Not bad.
In addition to squid, there are quite a few other new foods that we have yet to try. One is durian which is a fruit that smells like strong garlic, and balut which is partially formed duck egg. Both are somewhat "acquired" tastes. We are not rushing out to try these two just yet.
Beth is feeling better these days. She went to the doctor, received a couple prescriptions, and appears to be on the mend.
Thanks to everyone who has been praying for her.
Well, life here in the Philippines never ceases to be interesting.
I called the doctor's office yesterday to verify office hours and told the receptionist which doctor I was coming to see. She told me the hours and said nothing else. So, Kurt drops me off at the office. I walk in and tell the receptionist I am here to see the Doctor. "Oh, Dr. B. is out of town until Thursday, Maam."
That seems to be the filipino way.
Ask a clerk at the store if they carry a certain item and if they carry it the clerk will say yes but not offer to show it to you. You need to specifically ask "may I see it."
I should've specifically asked "Is Dr. B in today?"
My gut feels a tad bit better today but still is painful. I hope to see Dr. B on Friday....but I'll specifically ask if he is in the office before I go!!!!!
Please pray for Beth. She is not feeling well. She has pain in her gut. I am taking her to the doctor's office this morning. This has been going on for about three days and seems to be getting worse instead of better.
Thanks for praying for us.
We have a myriad of wonderful fruit here in the Philippines, but
apples still rank as an all-time favorite with Kirsten!!!!!!
