Living in “paradise,” believe it or not, is not always the utopia you might think it is. After over six years of living in the Philippines I thought it would be a good time to compile my “Top 10 Stress-Busters for Living in the Philippines.”
Cute Filipinas from Iloilo City on an island hopping tour off Guimaras. Though I recently posted an article on this topic last month, I didn’t think my readers would object to more pictures, courtesy of my niece, April. That’s her in the following photo, far right, next to the pretty pinay in blue.
Our 19-year-old niece, April, finished up her four month contract with SM Department Store in Iloilo City this past December 31st. She was classified as an “out right” employee for the biggest department store chain in the Philippines and did not work for an outside employment agency. If she had been hired as a five month contractual worker with an outside firm, she would have had the option to renew her contract immediately.
