I love that a bus comes by our house every five minutes so there’s never much of a wait.
I love that I can buy fresh veggies for such a low price. Generally I spend less than $10 a day for fresh veggies and fruit.
I buy two chickens for about $6. I’m paying too much at this time because I still have to learn the best way to buy chicken.
I love that the neighborhood garbage is collected three to four times a day.
I love waking up to the sound of the neighborhood street sweeper. She uses a reed broom and it makes a nice swish-swishing sound when she walks by.
I love the smile of the lady I buy my veggies from and she always gives me free green onions and cilantro.
I love that the people at the fruit stand always try to choose the best melon for me.
I love that so many people are willing to help me learn and do the things I need to.
I love mangosteens and I’m so glad we got here while they were still in season.
I love fresh papaya.
I love the "best-dressed-bottle-lady" who keeps trying to sneak on the bus with her big trash bag full of empty bottles. I think there must be some mental-health issue there, which is sad, but part of me is just rooting for her to get past the driver’s notice. She has a smile like Miss E. when she has just put one over on you.
I love that there is an "Alternative Medical Center" right next to the hospital. Isn’t that a great concept?
I love watching three-on-three basketball tournaments played at night in the parking lot of the Shin Wa Chain Store and shopping mall.
I love the electric moped/scooters.
I love that my kids are afraid of cockroaches so they help clean up promptly right after dinner.
I love that the little houseplant I had back in the U.S. is a huge tree in my yard here.
