I miss my boys :-(

I've been away from my boys since last week because of work. I am counting the days 'til I get to ride that SQ flight back to Manila (4 more nights!).

I was excited and sad when I left Manila. Excited because I've never been to Indonesia before and of course sad, because I'll be leaving JJ and Lucas for two weeks.

The first week was adventure-filled. We went on several long drives to visit potential sites for our projects. The icky things were staying in a hotel far from the city and eating padang style as there were no restaurants up in the mountains :-(
Here's how it goes. Padang style is their version of the turo-turo. Unlike our style, they serve all available dishes to the customer and then only the consumed food is charged. The "untouched" food is brought back to the stand and served to the next customer. Icky right? I ate fried food for days since I felt that these were the safest options. I also drank a lot of Coke since my colleagues were telling me that the acid will kill "some" of the bacteria. hehe :-)
Above is the Nasi Goreng Especial. Typical fried rice with a spicy kick.
This is a shot taken at Lake Toba. Lake Toba is the largest crater lake in the world. Much much bigger than our Taal Lake.Of course, the icky nights were worth it as we stayed at the new Marriott hotel in Medan. Nakabawi :-) The massage after the long drive was just heavenly.Graha Maria Annai Velangkanni. A Hindu-inspired Catholic Church.

That's the gist of what I've been up to the past week. I am now in Jakarta to finish our other tasks before going back to Manila. Can't wait to see my boys again. Tata!
