I’ve been reading this blog Tunay Na Mahal for a long time. I have no idea how Sarah found me but she did and left a comment. One day I went to her site and I was totally hooked on her story. She had met her fiance online, they never even met for something like 2 years (sorry if I’m murdering the story Sarah), when they did meet it was for a short time in the Philippines before she had to leave again. In all the years they have been together they have only met 4 times I believe. She has an entire time line of their story and it’s just nuts. My favorite part is coming up here in November (or is it October, see I suck) she is going back down there to see him again and GET MARRIED!

I’m really excited because besides gross nasty fish sauce I’ve really never tried any thing good from the Philippines. I am extra excited about the coffee because hello I HEART COFFEE!

I also love reading stories about how a ton of dishes from the Philippines come with spaghetti on the menu. This cracks me up. My most absolute favorite part though was reading about how the Philippines helped her develope a small addiction to Starbucks. Yes they really do run the world. Anyway I can’t wait to try my stuff, and if you get time stop over and read her love story, it really really is interesting…hint, their meeting had something to do with Lindsey Lohan!
