This post will be a general update on my life for the past month or two. It will be in reverse order because I am too lazy to move the pictures, and I can only use pictures from my phone because everything else takes much too long to upload (our internet connection here in the Philippines is not exactly speedy).
This is the Manila (Philippines) temple. Loida and I totally got married a few weeks ago and for our honeymoon, we are living with her family and touring it up in the Philippines! We have not been doing much honeymooning yet because we have been getting logistical things out of the way first.... like process our marriage documents. Which brings us to Manila.
While we were in Manila processing documents, we decided to go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead, but found out that they did them at 6:00PM. Too late; we would have missed our bus ride home had we done that. Instead we just walked around the temple grounds and enjoyed the beautiful temple.
The Philippines is a really beautiful country. The temple is as well (beautiful that is; not a country).
|How cool of an idea is this? Four flavors together. Genius.|
|Dad's root beer anyone? Not sure if they have this in America anymore, but they totally have it here!|
|Jeepneys are how we get around for cheap.|
|Loida with our nephew Jacob. So far it is safe to say we have been doing a lot more napping than we normally would.|
|Whenever I leave China, I try to take advantage of the fact that most other countries have 7-11s with Slurpees. This cost me 28 pesos (about 65 cents).|
This is Loida's house and where we have been living for the past couple of weeks.
|Straight up the best snack food ever. 8 pesos. (20 cents)|
This is the elementary school that all the kids go to in the morning. I walk my niece and nephew Jazmine and Arbee there just about every day.
Loida bought a toaster oven for her family, so we made bread sticks to test it out.
|Going to church the first!|
|Shopping on the first full day of being in the Philippines.|
|This is me showing our engagement pictures to our niece and nephew.|
|This is the drive to where we live in Baguio. Warning! You should probably mute the volume when watching. Sorry.... it is loud and nothing to listen to.|
|Amusement park in Hong Kong.|
