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.
