Duwende Responsible for Leaving Our Lights On!

Latest electric bill for January 2011 at "The Compound" in Guimaras was only P1,580.55 (35.81 US Dollars.) Not bad for a family of five, and one of the lowest bills we've had since moving to the Philippines in July 2009. Our December 2010 bill was P2,236.84 (50.61 USD),  November bill P2,666.23 (60.31 USD),  October bill P1,617.39 (36.58 USD),  and our September bill was a whopping P3,506.01 (79.32 USD) up from a charge of only P1,204.91 (27.26 USD) in August.
