An Iloilo City high school teacher recently tried to teach cheat my nephew Sharwen out of money owed to him. Now that Sharwen and his sister, Shaina, our niece, are enrolled in the public high school system in Guimaras, I’m releasing this post as I feared possible repercussions from the “teacher” involved in this incident.
I'm convinced public urinals are a waste of money in Iloilo City where we currently reside and are pissing away public funds. I can't speak for the rest of the Philippines, but in the "City of Love," I've only seen one person occupy one of the fixtures pictured below.
Conversion of Foreign License to Philippine Driver's License: My Asawa's Experience is concluded today with this post. My wife had made the trip to the main Land Transportation Office in Iloilo, located in the Jaro District, to have her Illinois Driver's License changed to a Filipino license before her birthday in September.
Conversion of a foreign license to a Philippine Driver’s License. Something I don’t plan to do. My Illinois Driver’s License expired last year. My wife, who at the age of 40, obtained her first driver’s license while living in the States, decided to have her Illinois license converted to a Philippines license before it expired next month on her birthday. The advantage of converting a foreign driver’s license before expiration? Don’t have to take any written or driving exams in the Philippines. That’s a huge plus in my books.
(Our Chevy truck in Illinois not long after my wife got her first driver’s license. OK, OK, I was driving and a deer hit our Colorado on the way to work about 5:30 in the morning. Just a little “husband humor” for you guys out there.)
ILECO's substandard service in Savannah Subdivison, Iloilo, where we reside, is an ongoing problem that is increasingly worsening. I long for the days when I complained about 44 brownouts we experienced from late October 2011 through late June 2012 in a post titled Iloilo's bothersome brownouts.
