Happy Valentine’s Day

Aloha Everyone,

Every morning, I first survey the buffet before planning my healthy breakfast. Today, there was no taho and sago, no croissants nor whole wheat bread. For J.J., there was no arroz caldo. Both of us made do with an interesting array of other food.

To shake off my stiffness from a long car ride, I walked on a treadmill for 40 minutes. Our room attendant informed us that hand towels have not been dried. In the gym, there was also no blue colored hand towels. I used an extra large pool towel to wipe my hand and face. The treadmill I use is not designed to hang large heavyweight towels. Additional efforts of preventing the towel from dropping on the floor made my workout more difficult.

J.J.’s dental appointment lasted about an hour. This dentist examined and treated two teeth. No mention of root canal nor further treatments are required. J.J. said that the doctor was very professional. The cost was 4,000 pesos or less than US$73.  The fee includes cleaning.

To celebrate his great dental visit, we went to Rico’s Lechon. Cebu is famous for excellent roasted pig. J.J. ordered mongo soup for me. He thoroughly liked lechon and tuna belly. 

My daily memo asked, “What is the ideal Valentine’s date for you?” My response: Being able to spend the day with J.J.

Aloha -- Cathi
