I am no Monkey

I just love climbing up in a tree, Ok!
Growing up in the farm, far from civilization, no electricity, no TV, I have found a hobby that I think I would never grow out of. For me, nothing can be more rewarding than eating a fresh fruit from a tree that I just climbed on. I've also proved that hiding and Running away from washing dishes, climbing up to the highest tree with lots of leaves to hide, works, I've done it! oh silly me..I know..

Here, I was climbing Tiessa fruit tree (Yellow Sapote in English name) The fruit taste good but not my favorite

Excedrin + Avocado

 Durian fruit tree in our farm

We had an abundant supply of avocados when I was growing up.My dad planted several fruit tress around the house and in the farm.. Too much avocados that just fell and rotten on the ground. In fact,  I won't eat any if it's not made the way I want..So buying avocados up here in Fairbanks is killing me, first, it's so expensive $2 a piece or so and second, it doesn't taste as good..
Anyway, I woke up this morning with a terrible headache, it was so hurt that I had a teary eyes, I believe it was a sinus headache.. Joel got up and gave me 2 Excedrin capsule and half of avocado. I can't take any medicine without something in my stomach or else it would create more problems.. I had a hard time eating that plain avocado this morning (early this morning, yikes!) but I had no choice otherwise..I was thought I won't be able to come to work today but after few minutes from taking those medicine, my headache went away. I'm hoping that it won't come back today, or tomorrow because I might get sick, sick from eating avocado early in the morning..

My heart cries out for the people of Haiti.  I was watching the news last night and I just can't help myself but cry. It is very devastating calamity....but there is hope.

Tropical Skin

I went to my Dermatologist today because my skin have some colorless patches and I don't know what it is.. Anyway, she told me that I have a gorgeous skin and would be perfect if I live in a tropical area. She said that I have what's it called Pityriasis Alba, a common skin disorder. It's not bad and it's not contigious. All I have to do is to keep using my moisturizing cream and flucinonide ointment and it will eventually vanish.. However, I have other idea though, I could just move out of this cold cold State and go to a place where its warm.. I think I like that better..The Winter up here is just too dry, too cold and too long that makes my skin go crazy and so do I...Well, someday soon, I will be out of here..

Bible Study Gathering

My friends asked me if they could hold a bible study in my house. Without hesitation, I said yes... but they need to bring food or else they'll go hungry because I don't cook. Well,  I surprised myself, I did cook chicken adobo and baked whole tilapia and it was good. I guess there is hope for me yet!
Joel made dirty rice (fried rice with broccoli, mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes, etc) a bit spicy but I like it that way.. We had more than enough food, besides of what we cooked, my friends and family brought a bunch of food over. It was amazing!
Our bible study topic was, judging others; Matthew 7:1-12.  who we are to judge others? who we are to judge something that we didn't make or made? we are unique individuals and we are sinners. So, who are we to judge? It was a good topic.

 He is cooking!

LED Lights

All the Christmas lights we have are LED but there was one dancing lights on the street on New Years Eve that I believe was not LED. The lights that everyone don't like to see ... Cop's car. Well, our neighbor was enjoying the fireworks in his yard which is illegal because the city had banned the fireworks within the city limits. Oh well, he had a good show anyway..
