Joy Ride


As I was planning for my post for today, I stumbled upon this picture. This is the scenario that I grow up with until almost five months ago. If you notice the number on the maroon jeepney, 21A, that's exactly the route from my place (Mandaue City) going to Cebu City. The second floor on the white building is where I go almost everyday for internet access.

I miss the hustle and bustle life in Cebu City. The traffic noise has become part of every Cebuano that lives in the city. The rushing of the jeepney would drive you crazy, but at times that you are running late, you would wish for it.

At one time, my American friend visit me there in the Philippines to see my place. She was having a good time riding jeepney, though it was very obvious that she was scared, she would hold her breath every time the jeepney pass by high-ways. After few days of riding back and fro, she learned to feel relax and enjoyed the experience.

Hi Grace! My weekend was not that bad. Despite of the morning sickness that I have, it became a sort of routine thing for me. Hay, it's a battle for pregnant women like me. Have you experienced this before? Please share some experiences you have for overcoming this problem. Thank you =).
