“Filipina Relative is a Scammer” is the topic for today’s post. One of my long-time supporters and personal friend recently asked my asawa and I for some assistance. Seems like my comrade’s older brother in the States was looking to communicate with a Filipina. My colleague was wondering if my spouse had any female relatives his brother could chat with.
Our recent trip from Manila was marred by tragedy: “Man Overboard! Our 2Go Cruise Manila/Iloilo.” Nine and 1/2 hours in to our 22-hour cruise back home, my wife suddenly called out to me: “Someone has jumped overboard!”
We received good news since my spouse was admitted to our local healthcare facility in the Philippines. She was on the road to recovery and was discharged from the Guimaras Provincial Hospital this past Friday after a battle with dengue fever and pneumonia.
Regular readers of Philippines Plus know that I’ve written about Guimaras’ annual mango festival numerous times. I’ve attended six of these events and this year was no exception. Here’s “The Kano’s” Grade for Manggahan 2015: C+.
Decades ago I was in the United States Air Force military police. Maybe that’s why I always make it a point to be sociable to peace officers no matter where I’m at but especially in the Philippines. I’ve met quite a few friendly police men and security guards in nearby Iloilo on Panay Island and on our own island province. So I guess it shouldn’t come as a complete shock to my readers when I post a title such as the one above: “I Join the Guimaras SWAT Team at Manggahan.”
