回鄉 2015 / Home Visit 2015

IV. 王城區

八月一日,Kimberly Michelle Cheng,我在美國妹妹(Jasmine Chua Cheng)的女兒來到菲律賓渡假。八月三日,她哥哥,Kevin Bryan Cheng, 在中國已完成他的實習也來菲律賓渡假。

佐藤崇大(日本人)是 AIESEC 國際志工的會員。他六個星期在我們學校服務,教我們學生英文會話。他是一個很用功,很害羞但很友好和彬彬有禮 的年輕人。我們已成為朋友。既然我已經在菲律賓而佐藤崇大從來沒有來過菲律賓,我就邀請他前來菲律賓。

八月五日,Kevin,Kimberly 和我一起去馬尼拉阿奎諾國際機場(NAIA)航站 1 接佐藤崇大。然後我們去貨運站拿一箱的螃蟹和大蝦,在巴科羅的哥哥 (蔡理世)寄過來的。

我們沒有馬上回家。我們先去參觀王城區和聖地亞哥城堡。從那裡,我們走路並參觀了附近的馬尼拉主教座堂。然後,我們開車前往聖奧古斯丁聖堂( 在菲律賓最古老的石頭做的聖堂,建於 1589 年)。我們到達時聖堂還沒有開,所以我決定坐半小時的馬車逛一逛王城區。我們回來時,聖堂已經開了。 我們進去參觀。

我們參觀結束後,我們就回家享用美味的螃蟹和大蝦晚餐。Taskeen,酈申的未婚妻,也來跟我們一起吃飯。

IV. Intramuros

August 1, Kimberly Michelle Cheng, daughter of my sister (Jasmine Chua Cheng) in the U.S. came for vacation in the Philippines. August 3, her brother, Kevin Bryan Cheng, who had finished his internship in China also came for a vacation in the Philippines.

Takahiro Sato (Japanese) came to our school as an AIESEC International Volunteer member. He was with us for 6 weeks teaching our students some conversational English. I found him to be very diligent, very friendly and well mannered young man. We have become friends. Since I am already in the Philippines and Takahiro has never been to the Philippines, I invited him to come and visit the Philippines.

On August 5, Kevin, Kimberly and I went to the terminal 1 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to pick up Takahiro. Then we went to the air cargo terminal to pick up the box of crabs and prawns that my brother Joel Chua sent to us from Bacolod.

We did not go home right away. Instead, we went to tour Intramuros and Fort Santiago. From there, we walked and visited the Cathedral nearby. Then we drove to the San Agustin Church (the oldest stone church, built in 1589, in the Philippines). Since the church was not opened when we arrived, I decided to take a half hour kalesa (horse-driven cart) ride around Intramuros. After we arrived from the kalesa ride, the church was opened and we took a look inside.

After our tour, we went home to a delicious crab and prawn dinner. Taskeen, Jahzon's fiancee, joined us for dinner.
