One of my friends named Nelly came home from their family vacation in the Philippines on Monday evening. So my other friend, named Gigi and I went to see her this morning to chat and get the stuff she had for us. I was so excited to see and chat with her after her 3 week vacation in the Philippines. When we got to her house, I ran to see her in the kitchen and gave her a big hug. Although she looked tired, she still managed to entertain us. After a short chit chat, she gave me the stuff that she had for me from the Philippines. I opened the bag and saw snacks that I used to eat back home in the Philippines. I got excited when I saw "ding dong" and "boy bawang". They are corn nuts and mixed nuts that have a garlic flavor. Although I can buy those nuts in any Asian store here in my city, the nuts that she bought for me from the Philippines are a little taste of home. I also got some dried fish ( i know it sounds nasty, but it's really good! hehe) and a bracelet that she bought in Boracay! I love Boracay beach. So to make our gathering complete, we cooked some Filipino food. Then we ate and had a good time together. Nelly is one of my good friends here in Texas.
