Any time a person is going from one culture to another, or from one country to another there are things that are different. But, as Dennis and I learned (and often mantra-chant to each other when the need to be reminded arises), it usually is "not wrong, just different!" Some of the "new" things I like so much better than the old!
Here is my attempt to share some of those cool, different things with you.
Thing I love #1:
This is a package of four diapers. Yes, just four! These little packages are available all over the place, and they are often available at roadside stores (called sari-sari stores) or corner convenience stores.
Have you ever been out and realized that you forgot to restock the diaper bag? Now, I won't put all of you in the same disorganized category as me, but I can recall lots of emergency runs to the store while on a road trip or sightseeing. Usually I'd have to buy a pack of at least a dozen diapers or more, and the extra diapers usually wound up hanging from a plastic bag on the back of the stroller. Annoying!
Happily, here I can just buy a few diapers and be on my way! Hooray for differences!
