Some Observations...

One thing we have both noticed while walking around the city yesterday, eating out in different restaurants & even within our own hotel... there are LOTS of older, white men seen with younger Filipino women. LOTS! It's interesting.

I'm also making a list of items I definitely need to stock up on in the US that I cannot find easily here:

* Tyenol or Advil
* Shampoo + Conditioner Bottle (I like the combo bottles, where I only have to wash & rinse one time! I don't have time to shampoo, rinse, condition & rinse again! Too much fuss!)
* Certain feminine products (Who knew they don't allow the use of a certain product here?!?!)
* Tide To Go - Instant Stain Remover (I should ALWAYS keep this in my purse!)

I'm sure I'll be adding to the list the longer I stay here & the more I experience. I had a heck of a time finding headache medicine this morning, which is why that is tops on my list today. We finally had to go to a medical cinic just to get 2 Tylenol. I don't want to have to go to all that trouble next time.

Today is Father's Day here in Manila... so Happy Father's Day to all of you great Dads out there! I've got one of the best fathers here with me in Manila. I am so thankful for the great Dad he is to our three kids. They adore him & he absolutely adores them, too!

Also, my wonderful Dad is getting to experience his Father's Day today with our three little ones. Dad, thank you for being the best father to me & the best Papa to my kiddos. You are #1 to all of us!! I love you!

Okay, so if they don't allow the use of those certain feminine products, are you sure you can even bring them over yourself? Maybe it's b/c of disposal of them???
