From Wikipeida, The original "Peeping Tom" was a tailor back in Coventry, England,who according to legend, had watched Lady Godiva (1040-1080), an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman, ride naked through the streets of Conventry in order to gain a remission of an oppressive taxation imposed by her husband on his tenants. Everyone in the town was forbidden to watch Lady Godiva as she rode a horse naked through the town, and tailor Tom disobeyed, saw Lady Godiva through a hole he bore in his shutters and was struck blind or dead. Tom evidently had issues with authority figures and let his libido get the best of him. The picture seen below is of a young Filipina that sat across me from the jeepney yesterday on our ride back to "The Compound" in Guimaras after a monthly grocery shopping trip to Iloilo. I had given up my roomy "shotgun seat," which is next to the driver up front, to my wife who had our three-year-old niece, JalAmiel, on her lap. My asawa gave me her big black purse and our pink niece's backpack to hold. I swear I'm beginning to act just like my grandfather, God bless him, who ALWAYS carried my Grandma's purse when they went shopping, and which was large enough to carry enough clothes for a four week vacation to the Bahamas.
I recently was given a new cell phone by Smart Bro.
The new touch screen phone, a bribe meant to keep me as a Smart Bro customer for two more years, has a camera, as most cell phones have, and since I had destroyed my asawa's precious Sony Cyber Shot digital camera
some time ago, I've had no camera to take pictures with for this website. Thanks to some suggestions by some faithful readers, I took the picture of the Pinay and emailed it to myself using the cell phone. It actually worked! I sure could have used this when I had the encounter with the hot Morena in Cebu City, but I guess that photo wasn't meant to be. I really regret missing that photo op because the gorgeous Morena was one of the most beautiful women I've seen in the Philippines (outside of my wife.)
Also caught some pictures on the jeepney of folks taking a nap which is a popular jeepney pastime. Now that I've got this camera phone figured out, I'll be able to take some candid shots of unknowing victims. I'm sure it's a violation of their privacy, but most of the people in the Philippines would be more than willing to have me take their picture. Anyway, that's how I'm justifying it. I've only had one person refuse to have their photo taken and that's our jeepney dispatcher in Guimaras. He stated he doesn't have any teeth or hair, and did not want any picture. He always calls me his "brother" so I respect his wishes. And I'm guessing you guys would rather have pictures of a hot Morena anyway!
