Fruits that I'm into!

I miss unripe mangoes from our backyards. We have an "indian mango" tree just at the back of our house in Philippines. My father planted it 20years ago or maybe more. Its been almost 10 years or more that we enjoyed its fruits and even earn money from it:)

I miss it this time and since there's no like that kind here, all I can do is find the nearest taste like it somehow:) I was so happy because I found one, just wondering about the taste..its like a very good papaya, crunchy as a mango and its look but taste like papaya..haha!

Another fruit that I miss is pineapple which my place Ormoc city has the sweetest pineapple I've ever tasted:) Many said it too! hehe. I was so happy when my husband surprised me with a pineapple so big. I know its expensive here but because I've been longoing for it this past days, he bought one for me:I Am so satisfied even if it don't taste exactly what we have in Philippines:) It filled my longing anyway!
Thank God for providing all my needs...and wants!!! TGbtG!
Happy weekend every one!

Hidden Place:)

I always heard from my grandma before that they hide on caves during the war:) As a child, I was wondering and it made me think how exciting it was:)

Here in Sweden, I had an oppurtunity to visit their hidden place during the war:) Its just big trees, big rocks, mountains you can see outside but if you get in, its a cave so wide full of big things used during the war! Like helicopters big and small and other war things of different kinds...so amazing to see and try..lol! My husband explained to me every historical events there or things that he knows. It was hidden before but now a museum called Aeroseum:) I had really a great time!

Entering the cave:)

Travel readiness!

Another thing bought in preparation for our summer trip to Paris. Since we will be traveling by car and it will be a long drive so we should have a little freezer where we can put foods, fruits and drinks needed for the trip. It would be fun if there's something to get and cold while hitting the road right?

So last weekend, we found this cooling box on sale:) and is perfect for our car, the color and the size! Our car has a power outlet in-built so we can use things like this cooling box when having a long distance trip.

Oh well, yes! I'm so excited! Six weeks more to wait and it will not be long:)

"The steps of a righteous man are oredered by the Lord." I am not righteous but still am proud to say that my steps are difinitely ordered by the Lord! And thats how amazing it is!

Hey guys, uh! its like a year that I've been gone! hahha! I miss it here but I need to do it for my own sake! And I know everybody understand:) So thank you all specially to all who still did visit! I'll pay double!lol.

This morning, we had a nice time getting together with classmates and our instructors as our closing party:) With coffe, cake and cookies, well its the typical swedish arrangement. But I like it today, we just sit and talk sharing our not-so-private lives just like normal conversation. I was amazed how our swedish just flow normally:) Our teachers with us looks so satisfied and happy for us! It is indeed our last step on swedish language journey in school so its time to make use of it outside,hehe!

with my classmates:)
Now that my school already ends, it feels so good and free. I would like to extend all my love and gratitude to my family and friends who's supports are extraordinary. For the prayers, special mention to Mel and my Mom whom I know been praying for me. If it was not of God intervening all this time, I could not make it! I was in the red line almost falling, but then am just so amazed how it turn out into more than what I just needed! Indeed all the glory and honor belongs to Him.
See you guys..its time for me to visit you:) Godbless!
