I Miss Golden Corral

It's been 2 and 1/2 years since hubby and I are here in my homeland doing missionary work. Once In a while, we miss the foods that we used to eat and of course our favorite restaurant in the states. Every Sunday after service, we used to eat out in different restaurants. One of our favorites is Golden Corral. It was just a few minutes drive from our house. I always like the foods there and they are not greasy unlike the foods in Chinese buffet restaurants.

I remember that Golden Corral was the first restaurant where I ate when I just got in the US. We were traveling to Iowa that time and we stopped by at Golden Corral in Kansas to eat lunch. Hubby and I had tried almost all the buffet restaurants in Wichita Falls but still Golden Corral was the one I like best. I like their meatloaf, their chicken fried steak, veggies and especially their corn in the cob.

Here's one Sunday after church that we went to eat at Golden Coral a few years ago. While we were in the restaurant, I filled in 2 plates with foods because I don’t want to stand up again after I ate my first plate. Hubby was surprised and asked me if I can eat all the foods that I got. He knows that I don’t eat that much. I told him I’m too hungry and maybe I can eat it all. It took me a while to finish my food and both hubby and I were so full that there’s no more room for desserts. We had a good lunch that day. The foods were so delicious and yummy to the tummy. Here are some photos of hubby and me while eating. Take a look of how we enjoyed our food.

Month of May

Well, the month of May had passed by so quickly. It's already the 1st of June today. I have lots of memories that happened in the month of May. It was in the month of May when I had my major surgery 15 years ago. That was a big blow on my part that almost knocked me down but God had been so faithful to me. I survived that trial by clinging to God and claiming His promises. It was a test of faith.

After the rain comes the sun. It was also in the month of May in 2002, six years later when I met my hubby in the internet. It started with a simple "hi" and "hello" until it developed into something special. We e-mailed each other regularly, then a few phone calls which lasted for 3 months until he decided to come to the Philippines, meet me personally and swept me off my feet. It feels so good to remember good memories that happened in the month of May...
