No Place Like Home

Time really flies so fast. My daughter is now 19 months. I have been here in America for 2 years and 4 months, and 6 months since I had last posted in my blog. In all these time, one thing never change, I am homesick. Homesick with my beloved Philippines.

I am sure, fellow immigrants here in the U.S. and other OFW share the same sentiments as I have. The smell of street food like fishballs, kikiam, shrimp balls, isaw and barbecue fills my nostril. How could one forget the famous balut, mani and kakanin. Halo-halo and the so called dirty ice cream cools me down on a hot weather. Organic food here in America is quite expensive and I now realized how I had taken for granted all the vegetables and fruits in the local market back home. Homemade dish that satisfy the palate. Children playing on the ground, People chattering, the simpleness of life in a small town, warmness of people and their hospitality. And the fact that you are being surrounded by people you love is more than enough to yearn for home.

Philippines has more than its share of flaws. But, it is home. And there's no place like home.

How to End Morning Sickness

Last week I got the chance to talk to my best buddy in Canada. We reminisced about the past and she kept me updated with what's up on her life right now. All of us, in our circle of friends were almost married and most have children of their own.

Finally, the stork has landed in their household. She is pregnant! We are all so happy with the great news. The thing is, she has one dilemma. A dilemma that she shares with about 95% of pregnant women. MORNING SICKNESS! She hates the smell of anything fried or anything that is chinese food. She vomits, suffers headache and the like. And like the rest, she wants an easy remedy. Click Here! for tips and guides on how to end morning sickness. This is the time to say "goodbye morning sickness".

Autism

Autism is just a plain word especially for those who never encountered one afflicted with it. Who cares? Other may say. When we were teenagers back in our lovely Philippines, when a friend is deep in thoughts and seemed to be not there mentally with us or preoccupied with something, we would say " here she goes again in her own little world" or "autistic kasi". Little did we know how serious it is.

I haven't paid much attention to AUTISM until, the two children - of a very good friend of mine, who's like a family - were diagnosed with autism. It is heartbreaking to know that these two lovely angels are struggling. Abigail and Brent are making that best that they can to help Elisha and Ethan. Abigail is the best mom I'd ever know. She sacrificed a lot for her kids. I can't imagine the pain they are in seeing their children struggling. They are always in tune for medical updates and breakthroughs for autism. I admire her for never losing hope and faith. If all people would help each other and be sensitive enough to help those in need, this world would be a better place to live. I don't know how I could help these two angels. But maybe, with you reading this, you could also help. Here is a link for Abigail's post asking for loan for Ethan and Elisha's initial DAN ( Defeat Autism Now). http://lend4health.blogspot.com/2009/08/elishaethanca.html. Thank you!

He used to led a semi-celebrity life as psychic medium. Jane's role is highly valued by his fellow agents because of his solving high profile cases. But senior agent Teresa Lisbon (played by Robin Tunney) resists Patrick to be in her unit. She blasts him with his being happy go lucky trait and kind of narcistic.
