No More Rain

The torrential rainy week is finally over.  The sun was out today although it was a bit chilly.  No more mudslides, floods on streets and broken trees on rooftops and cars.  The change of weather was nice for a little while (maybe a for a day),  but not so nice when the cabin fever settled in.

I guess I'm very spoiled when it comes to weather.  I like it warm and sunny.  Or maybe, just maybe, that I can blame it on my tropical genes that are encoded in my DNA.  Well, well, spoiled or not, sunny days are here again and that makes me soooo happy!

Rainy Monday

Today is MLK (Martin Luther King) day, and is a holiday for most of us.  What to do on a rainy Monday?  We decided on going to a matinee.  My sister, brother, and I took Hayden to see a Jackie Chan movie, " The Spy Next Door."  It was really entertaining.  

The movie brought back so many happy childhood memories back in my hometown.  I remember watching his kungfu movies that were dubbed in English while eating hot garlic peanuts sold by the street vendors just outside of the cinema.  I heard from my cousins that there are no cinemas in my hometown anymore.  That's really sad.

The smell of buttered popcorn, kids and adults laughter, Jackie Chan's funny antics still fresh in my memory sure made this rainy Monday a very warm and happy day.
