Okay, finally I have the chance to write and something to write about. This is a special day as such remarkable things are worth the memory. It's not that there are no happenings in some other days, it is just that beautiful firsts have happened today.
Today is my first to spend time with my students. I declined invites before on meetings or any gatherings after classes. For time, work reasons and some other to mention. However, I had the time today and it so happened there was an event to celebrate, I thought it was worth to join and be part of it.
I was impressed how gentle my students were during dinner. Of them putting the food on my plate was very surprising. It should be natural for someone special to do the thing for me but of these men in the military is really remarkable.
The seafood restaurant is really far from my place, in fact I got to the venue in two hours and I was really late. However, it was meaningful as much as it was my first time also to eat a strange seafood. Many call it kinda weird Thai seafood and frankly, we never have the kind in the Philippines despite the fact that my country is surrounded with sea waters. This is actually called horseshoe crab, it's "Maeng da Talay" in Thai and the translation in English is "pimp sea/ocean". It didn't taste bad, neither good for me but at least I have tried it. I ate it with spicy mango salad as I was told and it was fine. It has a distinct strong taste and smell and I felt like eating lots of small eggs. I have no problem with it though but I won't try eating any horseshoe crab next time. I don't know I can't get rid of the thought of it being a bit similar to the predator's face...hehehehe.
On the other hand, I find this strange plant also in the restaurant, it's bizarre I can't call this bonsai or the like, the leaves for sure aren't normal.
See? Today is really an extraordinary day or you may call it a night hahaha. ;))
