Well, thank you...

I was battling hunger after viewing ginnieb's breakfast photos, but now no longer have that problem. hehe

But, it was a great article...I always find culture differences interesting. I would probably starve if I had to live there...

Friar__Tuck, This was wonderfully fun for me to read especially since my Son #1 was there a lot during his Navy years and shared much of the same things.  Also, in my work as a nurse, I enjoyed the company of many RN's fresh from the Philippines, just learning English, who talked much about home and brought their culture with them.   They are all Americanized now but I really enjoyed learning from them.   My favorite conversation with one of them included,

"How old are you, Miss Betty?"  (alway they pronounced my name "Bet - tie"  not "Beddy" like everyone else I knew).

"I'm 55, almost 56."

"Oh-h-h-h!.... and you still drive?  (in amazement)   HAHAHAHA

Thanks for sharing.
