Manila to Atlanta

August 9, 2011

Man, I am so excited about going home. Tough it was fun here, I desperately miss my family. Business here in the Philippines went really well and it is inevitable that a return sooner than later will have to take place. When coming back here, jhen would have to come as well. No matter how fun the trip was, it would have been 10 times better with the family here.

Thank you to university of the east and university of the Philippines officials for extending such accommodations. It is greatly appreciated.

I do not know how much blogging I will be doing on the trip back to Georgia. I am exhausted physically and emotionally. Having to speak proper English for the last 12 days has taken a lot of me.

Sincerely,
PJ

Tokyo to Manila

July 28, 2011 Narita airport

Wow, what can I say…I am super tired. Before I say anything, I have to start by saying that JAPAN HAS THE BEST MCDONALDS IN THE WORLD! Fast, fresh, and sooo good. I can honestly say that was the best big Mac that I have had in my life. I probably ate the whole thing in about two bites! There are so many Filipinos on this plane. It’s a culture shock. Being in Georgia for awhile now and not being in the Philippines since 2005; it’s a sensory overload. Not that there is anything wrong with being around “my people” it’s just overwhelming. I think a lot of it has to do with everyone excited to be going back to the Philippines. There are also a lot of kids in here. It makes me miss my girls even more.

On a side note, going forward, I will now be staying in first class when traveling from atlantato Manila or vice versa. My premium seat was great but those first class seats are amazing. You could practically lay down! The seats are also slanted so you technically are not sitting next to anyone.

Watching godfather to kill the 3 hours and 45 min flight. I love the quotes in this movie. You can quote the godfather for any occasion. I love this one… “a man who does not spend time with his family can never be a real man.” or this one… “never tell anyone outside of the family what you really think.”.

It really gets to me when I see parents being mean to their kids (especially if it’s a girl). I don’t understand why some parents have a hard time showing their kids love and affection. Makes me miss the kids more.

I am beyond mad right now. Someone is smoking in the bathroom. We can all smell it. That person better get caught.

Why be an undercover Christian? Live life!
