My year's fortune, according to the Chinese astrology thinking.

That is me, the year of the pig.

We had planned to go out of town to a nature park today, but it had rained a lot overnight, so Sofie decided that it would not be so good, and she called me at the hotel, to say that she would meet me at 11am instead.

When she arrived she had her sister Lyn with her. Lyn is the next one older than Sofie. The oldest sister lives in Manila and is married with two little kids. We planned to go shopping and try and find the ear rings that I want for Dandan.

We took a taxi to another shopping mall. We had no luck at all with the ear rings, but Sofie managed to get new batteries for her Mum's watched.

In the mall, I tried on a traditional Filipino lady's top, but sadly it was too small for e. It would have been a purely impulse buy, so maybe it is better that it did not fit!

We had a nice lunch, at a food hall. Local food of course. Then we went on to another mall in search of the ear rings, but still no luck. I did find the frangipanni flowers on a bracelet, so at least Sofie is now clear about what I am looking for. I did find somenice keyrings for gifts, and before we left the shopping mall, we had coffee and cake in a wonderful shop. The cakes all looked delicious, and what we had was totally delicious, and the coffee was good too.

When I got back to the hotel, I turned on the TV and watched Australian TV, while I did my cross stitch. Early in the evening, I went down to the dining room, checked emails, and had a delicious dinner, of pork and chicken adobo. This is pieces of pork and chicken cooked in soya sauce and vinegar. It was very tasy, with an unusual flavour, that I enjoyed very much.

I went to bed reasonably early, preparing for an early start tomorrow, but I did not go to sleep for hours. Most frustrating, as I have the alarm set for 6.30, ready for an 8am start tomorrow!!
