My asawa and I had received disturbing text messages one Friday afternoon from the adviser to our nephew Sharwin: he had been attacked at Santa Teresa H.S. on Guimaras Island. I was on my way to the high school the following Monday morning to find out why the pupil who had punched my nephew was not reprimanded.Nephew Sharwin at field exercises

American expat in Philippines rescues report cards at Iloilo High School. Yes, I had to make a return trip to the educational institution which our niece Shaina and nephew Sharwin formerly attended.

Iloilo City High School Teacher Tried to Cheat My Nephew: Part 2

high school iloilo

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. She knew I was on a mission and there was no stopping me.

Conversion of Foreign License to Philippine Driver’s License: My Asawa’s Experience

my lovely asawa

Conversion of a foreign license to a Philippine Driver’s License. Something I don’t plan to do. My Illinois Driver’s License expired last year. My wife, who at the age of 40, obtained her first driver’s license while living in the States,  decided to have her Illinois license converted to a Philippines license before it expired next month on her birthday. The advantage of converting a foreign driver’s license before expiration? Don’t have to take any written or driving exams in the Philippines. That’s a huge plus in my books. 

Our Chevy Truck

(Our Chevy truck in Illinois not long after my wife got her first driver’s license. OK, OK, I was driving and a deer hit our Colorado on the way to work about 5:30 in the morning. Just a little “husband humor” for you guys out there.)

Leaving Iloilo. Next year. Why? Lolo’s  Alzheimer’s. No water. Constant brown outs. After nearly two years in “The City of Love,” and four years since moving to the Philippines, my asawa and I have decided to move back to her home province of Guimaras.  I’m fine with that.
