For the sake of this blog challenge, I now refer to these as my zebra shoes.
Yay! We did it! Congrats everyone!
W is a hard one but fortunately the next stop on this trip brings us to Baan Phu Waan. We will be here for a week of work conference.
This whole trip we just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Holy week and Easter weekend at an Anglican church, the princess's 60th in Thailand, 30th birthday party of a friend, a Ceilidh and now a live production of "Into the Woods" at one of our NGO's partner schools. I can't wait to see what unplanned thing happens next week!
My mom has been super supportive of me working for an NGO so when she gives me a wish list of items to bring back from my travels I relish the quest to check them all off.
The last item was checked off today when I found the black pearl earrings she wanted to match the necklace she got from this same kiosk over two years ago.
It's a Ceilidh! (Pronounced 'kay lee') We just happened to be around during an Irish - Scottish dance party. My first one and it's in the Philippines. There is much craziness. The live band is great. Lots of merriment making. :)
L is for lots of things! Some letters are easier than others. Today has been filled with the people, places and things we love in Davao.
We had lunch at the Banana Leaf at SM Lanang. Then we went for a luxurious massage in the afternoon. The evening ends with dinner at our favourite restaurant in town (Bon Apetit) that is run by a lovely couple, where we dined with beloved friends.
And then there was this mesmerising mechanical lion.
You know it is a gourmet burger when they ask how you would like your patty done. Besides serving delicious food, "Burger Chef" in Davao donates money to a food bank in a nearby town. It's win-win!
The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country and they LOOOOOOOOOVE Christmas like nobody's business. So I was planning to grab a fun Easter shot for today. This is the closest sign of the holiday I've seen so far.
Mango and sticky rice is my favourite Thai dessert. Dairy Queen has a mango and sticky rice sundae. Done.
Bonus D: a dog embarrassed to be wear a shirt and trousers.
