    1. So y’all decided that you are going to go to Korea, for sure?
      If you are, are you going to bring Wyatt? That seems like the biggest obstacle you are facing.

  1. Hey UJ,
    Well I hope you reach your goal then b/c I would love to be suprized like that.
    Yes Jaclyn has led a very sheltered life… LOL I have only been to Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Lousiana
    So I don’t get out much…lol

  2. John i would give it a try,i am not sure how to do it so when we arrive 1st
    week in jan.we will stop by and see you and you can show me how to post a story.I can talk about our trip to samar and our little spot.I remember the store been there often,its not like the stores here they jam alot into small space,Jaclyn and her family will be suprised to see that i bet.Great on your walk i have been up there a few times and that will be a long walk.

    1. I think I can make you a guest writer. I’d have to check, but I believe I can add you in.
      Jaclyn is going to be surprised about a lot of things around here. Remember, she’s never been out of the US.
      I’m hoping the walk will help. It should. I want to be able to walk much further than that, but I’ll have to start slow.
      That’s not exactly a short walk, no, but we’ll take it slow at first.

  3. Six point zero five lbs off in one week ain’t shabby. Congratulations! What kinds of fruits and veggies do you eat there? Really impt when your bod is slowly adjusting to the weight loss. Walking 9 kms a wk will also help tremendously. Jaclyn won’t recognize you when they arrive in 8 months!

    Traffic. Been meaning to talk about that. The passenger pedal or motorized trikes give a valuable service to the passengers but man, they’re really road hazards there if you’re driving specially if there are no special lanes for them. Some stretches outside Tacloban have those lanes but the drivers seem to pay no attention to them. A real challenge for due care and attention when you’re behind the wheel.

    You’ll also feel a whole lot mobile, JJ, if you do learn the stick shift so you can take the pos out anytime. Just don’t tackle hills at first. That’s a real beach when you have to stop and start on an incline when you’re just learning. But like everything else though, it’ll become a POC [cake for that “C” 🙂 ] .

    Do you like chicken? Bet Lita cooks a mean adobong manok ! That on steaming rice with veg would be a mmmm.

    Read you tomorrow!

    1. Guess that means you found the weight I lost this past week. I haven’t been eating much vegetables, except potatoes and carrots. Had some green beans yesterday with chicken, it sure was good too. Unless you count tomatoes, lettuce and onions, then I’ve eaten a lot of those. I know I need to eat more green vegetables, especially the dark green, but I don’t like too much of that except spinach, and there ain’t none here. There must be a similar one, I’ll find it. Kale I think is good. Part of my goal is to really surprise Jaclyn. Maybe I’ll be standing right next to her and she won’t recognize me. No, no special lanes for the trikes here. And if there was, they too would ignore them. Good thing here though is no jeepneys. It’s still a bit crowded, but we don’t have to worry about those. Actually that first gear, especially on a hill, is the only thing I have a problem with on a stick shift. I know where all the gears are, and can shift them. It’s just starting out that I have the problem with. Yes Lita can cook a mean chicken adobo. I eat that often with onions and red peppers (vegetables). Rice on the side to mix in with it.
      I’ll type…you read.
