Gobble, Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I am thankful for many things.. but mostly, after speaking with my brother, for God putting 3,000 miles between me and the Hai. Although from what I understand, Thanksgiving Eve was a bit more low-key this year.. making me even more grateful that I opted to remain on the west coast and indulge in hours of reality TV last night rather than table-dancing in one of Ltown's most notable hot-spots.

Anyway, wishing you & yours a safe, happy, healthy and bloated Turkey Day!

Weird? Or Patriotic? You be the judge...

Here, Boy...

As westerners, we're used to receiving the hairy eyeball and beckoning call from our parents or guardians when we've been found guilty or done something wrong. The mere symbol of being summoned by the curl of the pointer finger released from a closed fist is enough to spark a flood of memories from my childhood. What? Just because I was cute didn't mean that I could get away with EVERYTHING.

Also termed the 'dog call', this motion is considered supremely insulting, and acceptable ONLY for our canine companions in the Philippines. And beware, my friends; for if you're found guilty of committing this "crime", being arrested is the least of your worries.. Others have not been as fortunate and have actually had their index fingers broken or cut off to ensure that the offense does not happen again!

And... We're Back!

Hello, Loyal Followers!

Tap, tap.. is this thing on? We apologize, once again, for our inexcusable hiatus. I'd love to be able to say it's because we've been busy traveling the world, but sadly, that isn't the case.

While my adventures have been quite stagnant (thank you, recession!), a friend of mine recently traveled to Tanzania, Kenya & Zanzibar. I highly encourage you to check out her East Africa videos if you've ever considered doing a similar trip! Get inspired to visit the Serengeti & beyond!
