"Pete- The Pretty Panda Goes To Ireland"

Image
Hi Friends,
     It's been such a long time since I posted. Sorry for that. I may have been a tiny bit busy visiting the world! Every summer I try to visit a place that I've never been to before. This summer that place was- Ireland! Have you been? Well if you haven't, I would definitely recommend visiting such a lush and super awesome place. Not to mention the nicest people you'll ever meet live there! I felt sooo welcomed and at home during my stay in Ireland. Sure there are bad apples here and there, but you'll find those anywhere. All in all, I was really happy that I decided to go. As they say "The Craic Was Mighty". Don't know what it means, but i think it's something fun. Speaking of fun, I had a blast from start to finish! So much so that I may have forgotten to talk to you guys while I was there, ooops! I guess "The Craic was a bit too mighty".

    My trip started late last month. I packed my bags and headed to the airport here i…

Hola Friends,

   Sorry I missed you last week. I can be forgetful at times. How have you guys and gals been? I hope the weather from wherever you are is treating you well. The weather in my town of Old San Juan has been awesome! It's been awesome for a long stretch lately. The kind of perfect weather for going to the beach. Which is exactly what I did with my friends last week. It was a hoot and a half for sure!
   We went to this Beach nearby called Escambron. Have you been? It's very much known for it's awesome beach and corals with fishes that are perfect for snorkeling. Thank goodness I had bought this awesome snorkeling mask from Amazon.com. Yes, it was one of the things I bought from that night of over shopping! I just kept this one. The rest has been returned and I've got money in the bank again. So all is well! Anyway, this mask is just so awesome. It's like an all in one mask with the breathing tube thingy attached to it. If you're ever wanting to buy …

Hi Friends,
   How are my Pretty friends this week? I'm doing great too! For the most part. Let me fill you in on great part of my week. Then we can talk about the not-so-great part. Deal? Great! So this week started with the weekend. It was pretty fun and Amazing! I hung out with my best pal, Al the Koala. We went dancing- fun story for another time, we went back to the Best Brunch place I told you about, and we ended the weekend with a relaxing tv marathon of our favorite show. It's very funny, but real at the same time. I don't know if you've heard of it. It's called "Last Week Tonight". You should totally watch it. Al and I are addicted! Anyways, after the weekend was just mostly work and lunches and dinners with new friends. So, it was really good as well. That brings me to the not-so-great part of it. It's more like a single event that had multiple consequences and got me in big trouble.

 It happened two days ago. I had just gone back from dinne…

"Pete- the Pretty Panda" Meets a New Friend

Image
Hola Amigos/Friends,
    How have you been? I've missed you! Thank you for making last week's adventure the best yet. I'm so happy that my circle of friends are growing more and more with each adventure. I love making new friends that are as awesome and pretty as you! Speaking of new friends, guess what? Yesterday, I met a new friend and boy is she awesome. Yes, she is pretty as well. She's a Pretty Bird. Her name is Lara. She's a Lark Bird. If you don't know what a lark is, it is certainly worth a google. Larks are birds that come from the old world. They are good natured and full of innocent humour. They are one of the best kinds of pretty bird friends to have.

  Lara and I actually met weeks ago. You see, as a new resident of my town, I often go to social gatherings to meet new people. Of course Al the Koala was there too. He is my best pal after all. So a couple of weeks ago, Al and I went to this social gathering in a place called Santurce. Santurce is a t…

Hola Friends,

   I know it's only been a week, but it feels like it's been sooo long since my last adventure. I sure did miss you! Okay first thing's first. You may be wondering about last week's drastic makeover that didn't go so well. I am happy to say that I am back to the Pretty Panda that you know and love. No more trump hair! I learned a lot from that adventure, mainly that I need to be better at speaking Spanish ASAP. Also, I learned that worrying too much about the way you look harms you more than it helps. I mean it's okay to take pride of your appearance, but don't let it consume you. Trust me, it doesn't end well. So I say yes to taking care of yourself, but no to obsessing about it. Comprende? Good. Phew! Am I glad I finally got that off my chest. That's been bothering me since last week, which made the days drag on and on and on. It's been tough, I'm not gonna lie.

 Well, actually not ALL the days were bad. Last Saturday was goo…

"Pete- The Pretty Panda" -Searches for the Best Barber

Hola Amigos,
  That's Spanish for "Hi, Friends". Yes, I am getting better at speaking Spanish day by day. Two thumbs up! Well, actually, I am learning out of dire necessity. Let me explain. Although the lovely people here in my new home of Puerto Rico speak English, I've found that a lot of them don't or speak very little of it. It has generally been okay for me so far. I've learnt that vendors say the same things to you and I've mastered the various responses for those questions in Spanish. It wasn't until today that I realized I have been living in a house of cards. Not like an actual house of cards, although that would be so cool, but in a more "metaphoric" way. I'm not sure it's the right word, but the internet says it is, so it must be.

 Anywho, my epiphany all started this morning. You see, Pandas have a lot of hair and Pretty Panda's like me need to keep good maintenance of our hair. To do that, we need a barber, but not j…

"Pete-The Pretty Panda" looks for The Best Burger

Image
Hi Friends,

 How is everything on your end of the screen? It has certainly been very thrilling on this side. I just had the Best Burger a Pretty Panda has ever had this week. It was soooooo amazing!
I won't spoil anymore of the story for you. Don't worry, I promise I'll share every yummilicious detail I can remember.

 Okay, let's get to it.

  It all started on Monday. No wait, it was Wednesday. Or was it Tuesday? Hmmm... Well it was one of those days for sure! Sorry, let's start over.

  It all started on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday. I had just gotten back from the local market in town for my weekly grocery shopping. Hey, Pretty Panda's like me have to eat too. I got lots of yummy fruits and veggies, and I got some tasty looking snacks and cookies as well. Momma always said, "eat what you like, but in moderation and proper balance". Not really sure what some of those words mean, but I think she meant to eat something healthy with something that's not …
