My Vacation: I'm Excited like a Dog?

I am very excited when I think of my vacation in April, after more than 2 years in Saudi Arabia. My mind is bombarded with questions and thoughts about it. What will I do first when I get home?, Is it still safe there in Cavite?, Will it be humid when I get there?, How much a plane ticket from Manila to Baguio would cost me?, or Is my 40 day vacation enough for me? etc.... This is not helping my insomnia and we're still in February.

I have been working here in Saudi Arabia for many years now and I can say that this country has made me feel "like a dog out of his cage for the very first time" every time I go on a vacation, maybe it's because of this country's culture or should I say it's "strictness", is that the right term? anyway, I'm not saying it's bad, but I don't think it's good either, probably it depends on the person you are asking, whatever it is, I'm not in a position to make criticisms.

About my vacation, I know what I will do first!, I'll ask them to buy me a bottle or two of icy cold San Miguel beer and a couple of Balut or maybe Aling Remy's delicious Crispy Pata in Noveleta, now that would be nice! And then on the next day, I'll take my children to Josephine's Restaurant in Kawit, a sort of post graduation celebration for Sofia (she will graduate this March in highschool) and besides, I "need" to go there to taste my favorite Mutya ng Cavite soup, it's indescribably delicious.

Anyway, I'll just have to remember to take a lot of pictures or videos of the places where I will be going to, to show all my friends here and you, the readers of this blog. For now, I will just have to wait and prepare (the pasalubongs) for that day.
