Iloilo’s Bothersome Brownouts

DSC

Brownouts in the Philippines, including Iloilo where we reside, are as common as cockfights. You might be in the middle of checking to see if you have any new Facebook friends on your pc,  watching your favorite rerun of Darna on the Fox Filipino channel or sitting in your favorite   talabahan   enjoying a brew (or two) when the lights go out.DSC

The Policeman’s Widow from Guimaras. Husband Killed by Assassins in Iloilo.

Shopping at an optical store recently in Iloilo I never expected the response from the attractive young Filipina that I was speaking to as my wife was having an eye examination done by the resident optometrist.  It’s been my practice, in an effort to drive more visitors to “PhilippinesPlus.com”,  to ask any salespeople I see in Iloilo if they are on Facebook and would like to add me as a Facebook friend. I have a link to my website on  Facebook.  I advise them I am married to a beautiful Filipina and live in Guimaras, and  have some single friends from the popular social networking site that might be interested in chatting with them. Gives me a chance to help them possibly communicate with some foreigners and make new friends and gives me more exposure to this website.  OK, OK, and it gives me a chance to talk with some cute Filipinas.  But it’s all asawa-approved.DSC
