Well a week ago I post about my mother-in-law coming here for a visit. She’s here with us now for over a week. I’m really shocked of some of her adjustments being here in the Philippines. As you recall she was here like 8 months ago. At that time she had a hard time adjusting to the heat here. When we went to the mall to shop we had to stop by at the coffee shop for her to have shake or something cold to drink before moving on with our shopping. She had to cool down first. Just to walk around SM at that time we had to have cold drinks twice. She didn’t like it because its really a hassle to stop. That’s Christmas time too so the mall was packed. She’s just was not so comfortable at that time.
Now that she’s here at our house for over a week some shocking stuff that Mom had done. First she didn’t complain that much about the heat. Sometimes if I come to the room where she’s staying at our house lots of time the air conditioning is off. Wow, for me thats amazing. Before we had to turn on the air conditioning even if she’s at the other room so that when she comes back there the room would still be cold. She also hangs out a little longer outside her room to talk to our nieces and workers. We like it that she’s kind of adjusted here so that she will have more fun coming here. Hopefully by next visit we can bring her somewhere outdoor maybe like at the beach. By then she will enjoy having just cold drinks while watching the kids swimming. Just hoping though. 😉 . I felt sorry for her sometimes because the kids just would not leave her alone. They want to stay at her room every minute. Sometimes I will tell the kids to play at their room so that Granny can rest. If she hear me tell the kids that she will say that I came here to be with this kids so just let them be at my room. I guess she has some rest when the kids go to school during weekdays. She really adores her grandkids. She’s also adopting some of my niece here in the Philippines. Shes the granny to them now.
Mom likes a lot of the food here now. One thing that she loves eating here in the Philippines is pork. For one is the pork liempo. It’s the thigh part I think of the pig and it’s roasted. If she could she wants that food everyday. Another pork thing is the pork rind. In the mall here theres a place you can buy pork rind. So it’s really fresh, they will cook it in front of you. You can choose any flavor you want. She like it because its still hot and crispy. She’s the pork lady. 😉 . When she first came here she said that our meat has a gamy tastes. Now she doesn’t think that anymore.
Really she can already retire here if she wanted to because for me she can already adjust the life here. Maybe she might be even feeling better if she lives here with some of the health problems shes having right now. I really hope that later she will decide to live here so that we don’t have to be worried about her.
We really enjoyed having here for a visit. The kids would have a good birthday celebration then. It’s complete because Granny’s around. Good gifts too. 😉 . Mom thank you for visiting us again. We love you a lot.
