Oh the weather outside is frightful but this #homemade #pho is so delightful. 🍜😁 #earlythanksgiving
… is how the Christmas season comes so early these days. We could use all use some holiday cheer, but it’s all a delicate balance. Sometimes it’s not about giving or receiving. Sometimes it’s about appreciating what you already have - even the small things. Every year, Thanksgiving becomes a smaller and smaller holiday, only to give way to Black Friday (which I can’t believe is a legit recognized “holiday”) and the frenzied consumerism that spills over into the weeks to come. Oh, don’t get me started on “Cyber Monday”. I really believe we’d all be happier if we had less things and more gratitude, especially for the people in our lives.
FINALLY… butter and black pepper lobsters, spare ribs with eggplant, and house special fried rice. Can’t believe I went to Strake and I’ve never eaten here… 😁🍴 #foodcomafasho #foodgasm #latergram (at Confucius)
To be honest, I looked at these photos and part of me just died inside.
These are before and after shots of the the worst-hit city, Tacloban. A week ago, super typhoon Haiyan’s 195 mph winds and huge storm surges killed thousands. The infrastructure damage is apparent - there is not a single building left standing. What you cannot see, however, is the dozens of uncollected bodies lying on the streets. This disaster has displaced nearly 600,000 and affected 9.5 million people across the Philippines; nearly 4 million of those affected are thought to be children. Officially, confirmed deaths stood at 2,357 on Thursday morning, according to the Filipino government, but is estimated be around 10,000.
