Again, one of millions! These little stands are everywhere, and that is the dreaded Durian hanging on the sides! :(One of the many different types of pizzas here, today I saw a "Mayo and Mango" pizza commercial from Pizza Hut!
May not look appetizing, but it's yummy! :)
So..if you think this is about us getting a cute puppy, it's not. If you think this is about a cute dog that the kids are begging for, it's not. This is your fair warning to slowly back away from this post before .........well, before things get ugly.
It all started with a tutoring session. Sounds simple and easy enough. Talk a little, learn some new vocabulary, laugh at mistakes then in an hour it's all done. Except this Wednesday the conversation took a turn to another topic. Food.
So we talk about what types of "Macchiato" foods I have tried and she begins to mention things, that quite frankly, I didn't even know they sold here......at least not in our little city. So she asks Campbell to go out to her motorcycle and bring her the bag hanging from her handle bars. When Campbell brings it in, "M" opens it and proceeds to show me the supper she has bought for her family, which they will eat with their rice. She pulls out cow liver (gag!), cow intestines (feeling a little throw up in the back of the throat), and congealed steamed cow blood (passing out!)!!!!!
Awkward situation here, I am repulsed by what she has lovingly purchased to feed her family!! Fortunately for me, she is used to Westerners and just laughed at my reaction. But she kept saying I must try it sometime, that it is "enak sekali" or very good! Ya, well, not today lady, maybe, maybe if it the last food left on earth.........and even then Heaven will be sounding pretty good! :)
Now onto the title. Campbell and Haddon come over to see what she is showing us. Kids do not hide their reactions well......FUNNY!!! Then she tells Campbell that just last weekend she and Campbell's teacher (a single American woman) went and ate DOG.....cause they like it! Campbell was mortified and said, But Miss "S" loves dogs!" to which Barry replies, "Well, she loves them in more ways than one!" ACK!!!! So anyway, just a peek into our screened and always open windows!! Makes you want to come visit doesn't it? :)
Lastly, I wish I had a picture of this so that you could see it, but as we were driving the kids home from school today before lunch (they had a half day), I looked into this large open building where all the trash is dumped. Yes, it is incredibly nasty, but shockingly every week it is cleaned before being refilled. Today as we drove by I saw a lady sitting in the trash pile. She was eating things she found as she rummaged through the filth.
Well, the CEO has a way of putting things in perspective for us doesn't he? So pardon me, I need to go rub my toes that got stepped on, they hurt!
HEADS UP: My tutor is taking the girls out by herself for them to try new foods Saturday afternoon......should be a funny blog coming soon! :)
