Okay, okay, so I shouldn't be the [upset, jealous, worried] wife who is going to end up being a killjoy and make her husband feel guilty for not bringing her to the one place in the United States of America where she has been yearning to go to for the last 6 years since her last visit in 2006.
So no, I'll let him have his fun [no, NOT a hall pass] while he is there. He just called me to let me know who he reunited with and I can tell he is happy. If he is happy, so am I. While he sounds totally silly talking in pidgin, it makes me smile.
We shared a little bit of Hawaii together as well as with his family at the Hawaiian festival at the Alameda County Fairgrounds just a few days prior to his departure. There were arts and crafts, music, dancing, but more importantly FOOD!
Keat is a big boy so he got a plate of kalua pork with rice and noodle soup. I stole his tomatoes. They were just like how Inang made them. He then got a plate of pancit, pork adobo, and lumpia.
For desserts, we spoiled ourselves with shave ice (mine was with soft serve), Plumera Flours' caramel bacon popcorn called the "Kalua Pig" mix, and sugary malasadas!
At home, Jayla and I shared a SPAM musubi. If you subscribe to my channel on Youtube, check out how she "enjoyed" it.
