CELEBRATING THANKSGIVING DAY 23rd of NOVEMBER
Finally, I will be able to attend the Thnaksgiving Dinner with my family at my in-laws house. I am retired from work after all. During the time when I was working for this airline, I have never had the chance to spend all the holidays with my family. I am always at work. This time, my wife and my two boys is so hyper and happy about it. My youngest son has arrived late last night from his school where he rents an apartment also with his friends. It was a three hours drive and so he decided to rent an apartment near the school.
My new dog, Bombolini, Bombo for short will be with us to celebrating our first Thanskgiving all together. My new dog is a one year old ShisTzu, black and a spread of white hair on his chest. Very loving dog. I have not heard him bark yet from the time I have adopted him a week ago.
My in-laws said they will be doing the traditional Turkey and Ham Thanksgiving spread on the table with all the trimmings. I am being asked to make something Pilipino, so I will prepare the Shanghai Egg roll and by insistent public demand I will also prepare the spring roll, and of course I will make some dessert also.
Everybody is looking forward to this holiday. I like it, but I don't have any hots for turkey. It is too dry, and I have the stuffing. My in laws was telling me I am missing a lot. I told them, if I don't like to eat a particular type of food, I really am not missing anything.
The weather is nice, so said the weatherman. Compared to last year's Thanksgiving, there wont be any snow this time.
The amaziong thing about this particular holiday is that - everybody in the States celebrates it, irregardless of race, color or creed.
And so Auntie Patti koh, I am looking forward to this holiday tomorrow and I hope those people who have less than what we have, will be able to celebrate this holiday in their own special way.
