Celebrating the Irish/Filipino Parts of Us


Over the weekend, Nick and I had an even distribution of ethnic eating. To celebrate his part Irish, we went to a friend’s place for dinner to celebrate St. Patty’s day. It was the first time that I have ever eaten corned beef cooked with potatoes, carrots, and cabbage. Very tasty.

To celebrate my Filipino side, we went to a Filipino mass on Sunday that is celebrated in English, but a few songs are sung in Tagalog, the primary dialect of the Philippines. I’m not fluent, but the language is quite familiar to me, since my parents speak it to one another. Afterward, there was a reception with Filipino food, YUM.

We also saw the movie, No Country For Old Men. I think it should be called No Movie for Young Children. We both gave it two thumbs up, but the violence and blood is wayyyy too much for younger kids. So, if you can stand the drama, we give it a high recommendation. Just leave the kiddies at home.
