Burning Questions

Here are some of the burning questions that will be answered in this blog.

  • Will I be the only Filipino in town? (Per Wikipedia, as of the 2010 census, there were 1.6% Asian and 0.1% Pacific Islanders, and only 1.5% being of two or more races)
  • Will I be known as “the old mom”?
  • Where will we live?
  • Will I be able to find chicken katsu? pho? organic frozen yogurt? coconut rice?
  • Will the local coffee shop figure out how to make a macchiato to my liking? (And when they do, will the baristas whisper whenever I walk in?)
  • What about my music?
  • Will I successfully lobby city hall to:¬† approve a composting program, start an anti bottled water public service campaign, ban styrofoam and smoking, and upgrade the public school lunch program? (You think I’m kidding. I’ve already bookmarked a page called,”start municipal composting in your town“)
  • Will I then be known as the “crazy hippie lady”?
  • Will I finally learn how to ride a bike?
  • Will I wear fur? (Everybody’s doing it and I sort of really want to) Lilly Pulitzer? Loafers?
  • Will I crash my car after the first snowfall?
  • Will I join a shooting range, garden club or both?

Add a question in the comments section and I will be sure to address it in a future post!

  3. I hope you like Starbucks. Because that will be your “local” coffee shop. Maybe you’ll be inspired to start a local, homegrown coffee shop with free wifi and fancy homemade scones.
    In other good news, you’ll never have to wait in line at Trader Joe’s and you will get to spend a lot of time with the coolest grandmas I know, namely Leslie Martin and Kay Wasinger. They prove that 60 is the new 40.


    • If only I were that ambitious. I can make scones and that’s about it. And yes, I am actually very excited about not waiting at Trader Joe’s. I thought about that last week, as I waited 20 minutes just to get into the parking lot!

      Excited to have family (and family’s friends) close, too. Thanks so much for stopping by.
