Never In My Wildest Dreams Growing Up


February 3, 2015

Never in my wildest dreams growing up in the Philippines did I think I would be driving my own car when I grew up. Well, it has been 6 months now since I got my driver license and I am really enjoying driving my car. The first few months was very nerve racking especially when I am the first one on the stop light. I remember my feet were shaking and my heart kept on beating really fast. 

And, being on a four way stop, I was so afraid waiting for my next turn. Now, each day I drive the car to pick up my son, Charles at school and it is just a breeze. I am more confident behind the wheel and not afraid to step on the gas and leave the cars behind me in the dust, just kidding. The pleasure of driving the car now is I can go to the Asian Store, Walmart, or mall anytime I want to. 

Just like today, Charles, and I, went to the Asian Store to get vegetables, and sweet potatoes. How lucky I am, when the produce that I was looking for at the store had them. As soon as we got back home I cooked my dinner, chicken with papaya and coconut cream. Oh my goodness! The dish tasted really good. Ginger, and green bell pepper adds flavor to the coconut cream.

Sweet Potatoes (Camote)


How I wish my son, Charles would love to try to eat this type of dish so when we visit to the Philippines, he can enjoy the foods that we used to eat all the time. Not fancy, yet delicious! Even just dried fish, and vegetable (jackfruit) hmmm my favorite.
