It was a disturbing report. A highly reliable source informed me yesterday that Olivia’s Kitchen is no longer welcoming expats. Foreigners that frequent this Guimaras eatery have been tagged as “complaining and too aggressive.”
Years ago when I worked for AT&T back in Central Illinois, I would kick start my mornings with an icy cold can of Diet Coke. There was a drive-up coffee shop on Sixth Street in Springfield only a few blocks from my work. But I didn’t want to miss out on my free parking spot on the street. There were no parking meters five blocks from my job, so I never stopped for a cup of “Joe.” I wasn’t about to pay 30 bucks a month for a parking spot on a lot. Plus, a coffee would have cost me about two or three bucks back then, too lavish for my tight-fisted ways.

Annette initially appeared on “The Mickey Mouse Club” which was first televised from 1955 to 1959 by ABC.

Sigh. It’s a common problem among some of my expat friends in Guimaras, the tiny island province we call home. “Philippines: Wanted: Hard-Working Domestic Helper” is today’s topic that deals with the issue of in-house assistants.
“Philippines: Top Five Shortcuts for Fast Annulment” is today’s topic. How fast can you get an annulment in the Philippines? How much does an annulment cost? What are the conditions for obtaining an annulment? This article will address those questions.
I apologize to my readers. While I haven’t posted on a daily basis for years, I have been wanting to opine about our local utility company, Guimelco. “28-Hour Brownout Grips Guimaras” is the latest installment of our ongoing battle with the lack of adequate infrastructure on the island province we call home.
Remember this story I did back in May about a 62-year-old geezer that was filming his own sex videos and posting them online? The American expat was living in Bacolod City, “The City of Smiles,” at the time and was arrested.
