The "ghost month" is over. Well, the Philippines believes in this so much. They somehow blame all the the month's misfortunes on that belief. There was the non-stop rain and flood, the plane crash of Sec. Robredo, and the earthquake. My take on this, I simply do not believe in the "ghost month" concept. I put my trust and faith on my God instead.
August had been a wonderful month. And the last week brought us several visitors. It was overwhelming but so much fun.
My fourth and last weeks of August went like this --
|Day 22 - Home|
I have two homes. My heart will always be in Manila but right now home is in Bangkok where my two boys are.
|Day 23 - Pair|
I was packing stuff for mailing and I needed a pair of scissors paired with packing tape.
|Day 24 - Path|
This path leads to the Krungthep Wing of the Shangri-La Bangkok. My son and I got to hang out at the garden while waiting for my husband.
|Day 25 - Fresh|
Together with my sister-in-law, we passed by the supermarket of the Siam Paragon to buy pasalubong /gifts.
This supermarket just boasts of the freshest produce and fruits.
|Day 26 - Dream|
I was with visiting friends going around Bangkok. We stopped at the Wat Arun Temple and I took this photo from the boat. Living in Bangkok is a dream come true for me.
|Day 27 - Tap|
Chopsticks. I am Asian so we fairly use chopsticks a lot. I am left handed so I hold these using my left hand.
|Day 28 - Clock|
Our clock was a gift from Jed's eldest sister. This has traveled with us from Manila, Cebu and Bangkok.
|Day 29 - Down|
I was trying so hard to get back in the routine of exercising. On this particular morning, my shoe broke. Aaargh, this happens to be my favorite shoe.
|Day 30 - Card(s)|
These Starbucks cards from Taiwan were gifts from a fellow collector. I am still deciding whether to start collecting them or not.
|Day 31 - Hidden|
Behind this door lies all our .... JUNK. This is the door to our utility/junk room.
And just like that, September is here. And in the Philippines, the BER months signals the start of the Christmas season.
How did your August go?
