Bientôt Papa en permanence avec bébé et moi..

Frenchguy arrived from Thailand last Monday, and as we both agreed, that would be his last business travel till we get to D Day. Prior to that, he was sans cease with his work appointments in the four corners of the planet, leaving me and my big tummy to the mercy of the number 18 in case of emergency.

As usual, we (I mean bébé and I) had pasalubong (he knows this word by heart!) from bientôt papa. I had 5 ripe yummy mangoes and bébé had several bébé stuffs, ano pa nga ba..

After our birthing class last night, we decided to dine out to savour our last moments together before being officially tagged as parents. As usual, conversations were directed to work related topics, the latest news in France, and of course, my pregnancy...and then, he suddenly said that it's amazing how Thailand has transformed itself in a very short span of time. The infrastractures, the tourists-and-investor-happy atmosphere, the people...

That remark had of course made me thought about the Philippines ... what's up? Are we still scaring away tourists and investors? Do our newly grads land on well-paying, career-boasting jobs? Is the cost of living in equilibrium with what Juan de la Cruz has in his pocket? Is education still as inaccesible as before? Or even worse?

Just some thoughts..

I haven't been keeping up for quite a time, headlines about Arroyo impeachment and such kind of stuffs just don't motivate me..

Halu ANa!!! Glad ur hubby arrived home safe and sound. I know bebe is kicking upon knowing that,eh? =)

Nweis, it's really sad to note that Philippines is way beyond the progress of the neighbouring countries. I believe we are rich with the human power but the lack of opportunity to use and maximize all that resources are only wasted due to over politicking, corruption and self vested interest of the leaders. Investors hied away dahil kadaming internal conflicts ng bansa natin na hindi mareso-resolba. Haaay kakalungkot mang isipin, pero parang ang hirap na mabago ang takbo ng bansa natin.

Hi there,I want to take the chance to congratulate you with bebe.

I once met a guy at the airport and we chatted while waiting for our departure. He has a fIlipino blood in him, American citizen and he said lots of negative stuff about Filipinos. And he emphasized on the dishonesty and corruption. He said that 50 plus years ago, Philippines was more progressive than it's neighboring countries. But look at where it is now, the others moving forwaqrd and we are far behind. Really sad.

Hello Ana,
Sinilip kita kasi baka andyan na si baby. And of course I missed you, too, friend. Pati tuloy ako excited na sa pagdating ng little bundle of joy. Naku, kahi't nagpapahinga ka pa, do not forget the pictures, ha? Balik ako ulit. Praying for you and the baby,
Bel

Analyse said...

Bless, yep, she's over excited yata, ayaw tumigil kakasipa sa ribs ko hehe..

anyways, oo nga, me too, pessimist pag pinas na usapan, ewan, siguro because i work with the investors, and i see them invest somewhere in asia, but less and less in the phils..kahit pa sabihing mas madaling makipagtrabaho sa mga pinoy..

Angelove, thanks!

He had a point there. Minsan naman, i met some businessmen in one of our hikes, and he noted that under the table practice daw sa tin, that makes it hard to establish business with us..

Ligaya, yeah, home will be home pa rin...pero sana umabante tayo kahit kunti..

Ana, pwede palang magdala ng fruits (mangoes) sa ibang bansa? Sarap naman. How about bangkok na santol? :)

Francesca said...
