Glimpse of life…
Absolute, top of the pile, number one – grand kids. Not seeing them grow up and not being part of their world’s.
The next two are just words, “QUIET and CLEAN”. I don’t think, other than being inside a decent hotel, it is ever quiet or clean here, and I am not just talking about Baseco, Manila is neither quiet or clean.
Then there are a couple of foods that I miss because you seriously can’t get them here. The Phillipines has very, very limited food chooses, it’s nowhere near as multi cultural as other countries are. So I miss good quality red meat, I miss pies and pasties, I miss a good old fashioned hamburger with the lot made from the local fish & chip shop, plus really I just miss the variety of food and the quality of food that is not here, after 14 years, the food is all the same to me.
Obviously there are things I miss from here when I am not here, but that’s another post.
