13 REASONS WHY/WHAT I MISS BACK HOME: IN RANDOM ORDER


  1. FOOD- If you have Filipino friends ask them about these foods; Adobo, Sinigang, Lumpia,Dinuguan, Kare-Kare & Lechon. Then you will know why I miss the food in the Philippines.
  2. WORK- I used to be a Pre-school teacher but when I came here in Malaysia I stop working. I missed doing my lesson plan and singing "I'm a little Teapot"
  3. SARI-SARI STORES- These are small stores in the community apparently 3 Stores in one street and you can buy anything there.
  4. FRIENDS- I miss my friends ( Sally, Des, Joyce,Kim, Patring, Kay, Teng) . They are my friends for life!
  5. TV SHOWS- From Tele novelas to entertainment gossips!
  6. MY FAMILY- Wala akong kaaway dito!!!
  7. TRAFFIC- in Manila is terrible but I do still missed it. Weird it may seem. :)
  8. SHOPPING MALLS- Great shops, great stores & wide variety!
  9. SINGERS- You must hear our Singers. From Regine Velasquez, Martin Nievera, Lea Salonga & Jose Mari Chan
  10. BEACHES- when you go to the Philippines - go to BORACAY. One of the best beaches I went to.
  11. TYPHOONS- Well what can I say? here in Malaysia there is no typhoon, no suspension of classes due to signal no.1? 2? 3?
  12. HOSPITALITY- I miss the kindness of my kababayan. The best customer service in every establishment.
  13. TRANSPORTATION- You can take a ride no matter where you are, you don't need a bus stop or a taxi stand. Just wave your hand and you're ride is right there in front of you.

You sound a little homesick!!! My adopted nephew is from the Phillipines...he's here on a golf scholarship.

Maybe you need to just put on your red shoes, click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like home."

I've always wanted to visit the Phillipines, so I really enjoyed your blog...It's tough being away from home; I moved away 20 years ago from mine and I still miss it..

I have never been able to visit the Philipines. I know it must be beautiful. I know it is hard to be away from home and feel homesick. I am also glad that you have joined Sunday Seven as well as Thursday Thirteen. I do both as well.
