Home Away from Home

Really, the girls can't feel homesick when all around them are the familiar neon signs of their Papa's favorite watering hole. And unlike back home, they get their ice-cold frosty drinks more frequently because it is 36 deg. C outside! No wonder the baristas already know us by name.

The bright pink and orange sign beckoned to the girls, a reminder of post-Sunday Mass treats that only their Papa would offer. Besides, we couldn't resist the tagline that we won't ever see back home: Pasalubong ng Bayan (a souvenir for the entire community). And where else could we get purple ube-flavored, flower-shaped donuts?

Unless Uncle Bill surprises us.

I'm not sure the founders of DD in Quincy ever thought there'd be an Ube donut on display in one of their windows.

Papa is well- we check on him frequently.
