Time to wrap up the recent visit to Manila for this American expat with some photos from the trip. I ran a story about a visit to the Island Cove Resort outside of Cavite where my brother-and-sister-in-law treated us to a day of food, fishing and fun. I mentioned in the article that my brother-in-law, Joe, was very impressed with the female singer in the trio pictured below, but I had no way to download her picture for that article until I returned home. After the group left, Joe announced that the pretty Pinay was "maganda"("beautiful"), and I agreed with my brother-in-law. To be honest, the photo doesn't do her justice, as she was really even more gorgeous in person. Thankfully, Joe's asawa, Emily, standing nearby, and my own Sainted Patient Wife did not smack us upside the head for our remarks. Here's a frightening picture of me with the group. I've got my hair stuck up like some wild rooster's comb while I'm holding a San Miguel Pale Pilsen.
Next up is a photo with my twin nieces April and Michelle, and Nephew "Genny" who likes to proclaim to everyone how "gwapo" (handsome) he is, along with their Mom, Emily.
