A New Found Friend

Last week I had a chance to teach a couple who wanted to learn English more. They came from Brazil, they are friendly, and easy to work with. They loved to help and reach out to others in love. We brought them to different places too like Songkhla Beach, the known mountain near our place. We also tour them around the city one night and let them see what’s happening during night time. We had good time together. A lot of times I cooked food for them because they don’t know what to buy and cook here, as if still a foreign land for them.

Our sons especially AJ, would usually ask the wife to be with him while watching tv, or a movie. One time, we prepared and broiled fish, shrimps and squids, they loved it. They used to broil fish in Brazil and they missed it. So it’s a time of recalling what they have eaten when they were in their country.

According to them, their country is safe. All the nations of the world find comfort – they are a friendly people, and countries have their own community in Brazil. If a foreigner wants to make business, it’s so easy, and besides foreigners will pay the same amount that the locals are paying. Foreigners and locals have may things in common. And many foreigners stayed in their country and find themselves staying for a longer time. Foreigners find comfort and can make business to earn a living so easily.

Another thing that I’ve discovered was that, when the locals would apply for a divorce, it will only take 1-3 days. I was shocked because in the Phil. it will take 6 months to a year or more when a file for annulment is being processed and approved. Anyhow, my new found friend with her husband were great people. They have seen a lot of people with different personalities, nationalities, and cultures. They were also blessed with friends. They loved to help the poor and needy.


A Friend is a Treasure

We are blessed with friends anywhere. We were quite busy these few days attending in a retreat and having some fun in a huge park in Bangkok. We also went to different places just this week. And we are thankful that we saw different places with enjoyment.

Today, we decided to stay at the house of our friend here in Bangkok because we’re quite tired of going out and explore. We’re about to take a nap when another friend called on a phone and invited us to meet her in another mall. So we decided to go and meet her.

We travelled by van and reached there after 30 minutes. The Mall is very large. It is known as Bangkape Mall where you could see a lot of promotions around.

Then we met our friend – she brought us to the 4th floor. She showed us the Fantasy Lagoon – there is swimming pool in this area. After few minutes my hubby was encouraged to swim with our son and another friend joined them, but sad to say, after 15 minutes, a heavy rain came unexpectedly. So everyone was forced to come out of the water. We had a talk then we decided to eat dinner.

I’m really thankful for giving us friends anywhere, we were exposed to different places and exciting malls because of them. Thanks to all of you!
