A Funny Conversation With Gym Attendant

Aloha Everyone,

This morning when I went to walk on a treadmill, the gym attendant came to open the door for me. I gave him a 20-peso coin. He looked shocked to receive it. After my 40 minutes workout, he was ready to open double doors and called the elevator for me.

While waiting for the elevator, he asked me how I liked Cebu. I told him I like it here very much. He then asked if I like local food. My answer yes and my husband especially likes Lechon. The attendant asked if my husband had already had some Lechon. My response, yes 3 times in 1 week. The attendant was surprised and asked if my husband is fat. I told him no not at all. The attendant then said then your husband is very rich to have Lechon 3 times.

Lechon served in specialty restaurants are often chosen for special events. Therefore, having Lechon 3 times during our hotel stay probably impressed the gym attendant.

The cost for our meals including a small plate of Lechon, mongo bean soup, calamari and a tiny bowl of garlic rice plus a bottle of water average 1,50O to 1,800 pesos.  ($1 = 55 pesos)

Every day we appreciate little things we have in our lives.

Aloha -- Cathi
