Chris & Emafe Rice
Emafe met me at the Manila Airport with her aunt and cousin on August 29th, 2009. After our time in Manila we flew to the province and got picked up by her parents and brothers. I still remember seeing the never ending rice fields and coconut trees lining the highway with the wind blowing towards me and the fast motion of the multicab I was in. It was surreal!

We visited other relatives of hers but the first thing Emafe did was clip my toenails. I am not very clean when it comes to that and in the Philippines it is much more important. I don’t spend that much time caring for and looking after my feet so that's probably why I needed them clipped so badly.

Anyways, it was awkward getting my nails cut by someone else for the first time. It almost felt like she was going to cut my toes since she used a nipper to trim the skin around my nails. But I am now getting used to it.

Thank you, Fema. I love you :)

Emafe clipped my nails today.
