It’s Been A Year

It has been a year since my arrival here in Texas. Yes, it is the first anniversary of my arrival. I recall the sleepless hours during the flight with Korean Air. I could not get myself to sleep. The flight was smooth but I stayed up the whole time of travel. Maybe because of the thought of flying to the USA gave me the feeling of mixed emotions.During the first few months, I did a couple of things. Aside from visiting Mom and Dad, driving to our house in the country and going to places downtown, I spent most of the time at home. Surfing the Internet was my outlet to ease the boredom. My honey introduced to playing poker and slots in online casinos. It was interesting but hey, I just play for fun! Then I met new friends who I have started to get along with well.

My honey was very understanding during my adjustment period. And I can say that I am now settled and secured living in Texas with him. In addition, the current job I am in today keeps me busy.

A Kin Is Here In Texas

Yes. She arrived yesterday morning via Korean Airlines (KE) departed from Cebu to the port of entry, Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). My cousin is also a fiancee of a American from Texas. What a coincidence? I did not know much until she told me that she and her boyfriend filed for a Fiance Visa application. The whole process took just about six months. And after her visa interview at the US embassy in Manila, she got her Fiance Visa (K1) after two days. Whoa! That was quick!

Her flight went smooth and safe. Though she waited one hour at the immigration area, the interview went well. When I called her this morning, she told me she had a hard time sleeping on the plane. Oh well, she will have to experience the jetlag like I did.

How Do I Like It So Far?

It is already four months since my arrival here in Texas. And it is also amazing how time flies so quickly. I remember the day I get here. I took a flight via Korean Air (KE) from Manila to Dallas-Fort Worth (stopping at Seoul-Incheon). It was on February 23 and it is still winter. When we got out from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) airport, I thought it was still the air from the airport’s A/C that was blowing on my skin but it wasn’t. It’s the cool air outside. I was chilling that time. And until now, I am confused about road directions. As I look at it so far, I like it here in Texas. Not only for the main reason that I am now with my beloved husband. It is also because I find myself beginning to deal with the climate, the people, and the food. Even though Texas has unpredictable weather, it gives me the thought that Texas’ weather, at some other point, is quite similar with ours back home. We have a very hot summer days. And when it rains, it pours.

Americans are busy people. They are dedicated on their chosen field of jobs. Also, they are very particular with time. Here in Texas, I observed that they value their families too. And spending time with family on weekends as well going to church is a very big deal. I like that. And here in our area, the people are polite. When it comes to the food, there is no question about how I like the food here. I just can’t help ordering Spanish rice and Enchaladas whenever I think of it. I loved it the first time I tried it. Ooops! I sense something for dinner tonight. Oh well, I am learning how to cook Southern foods too.

I cannot deny that I miss the Philippines, but Texas is my second home now. Furthermore, I am proud to say that I have virtuous in-laws.
