Arrived at my niece and nephew’s high school around 6:30 am. Went up to my nephew Sharwen’s classroom to see if the instructor that had taken his 840 peso change for a new school t-shirt had arrived yet. She hadn’t. I wanted to have a chat with the Iloilo City high school teacher that tried to cheat my nephew. I wasn’t in the best mood. My asawa had stayed at home.

Meet Belinda Baylon, One of Guimaras’ Premier Teachers

Niece Shaina and nephew Sharwen are now enrolled in public school in mango land, Guimaras, my asawa's home province. We plan to follow them next month.

The wife and I have to go to Iloilo City later today to pick up her sister Marjorie who has been working as an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) outside of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
