Sometimes someone moves the bar for stupidity so low, it behooves the Crusty Old Expat to comment on it. Today’s dunce cap goes to Commission on Elections (Comelec) spokesperson James Jimenez. “Bikini Babe Bares Comelec Spokesperson’s Secret Crush.”
I highly recommend all my foreigner friends to check out this latest restaurant, Cassandra’s, located in our island province. This “Exciting Expat Eatery Opens in Guimaras” and offers a wide selection of Western favorites at very reasonable prices.
Yes, the title is correct: “86-Yr-Old Lolo’s 1st Dentist Visit.” Lolo (Grandpa) had a bad toothache the other day. My wife gave her Father (Tatay) a 500 mg Mefenamic acid tablet for the pain.

After a good juicy burger, a tasty palate-pleasing pizza is #2 on my favorite foods list. Since retiring to the Philippines over nine years ago, I’ve been hard-pressed to find a good pizza on our island province of Guimaras. Until now: Tansyong, best thin-crust pizza in Guimaras, if not the best pizza overall on the whole island.
“Wild Parties & All Sin Banished from Boracay Beaches?” Well, that what it seems like to me. If you were planning to visit Boracay, formerly one of the best party beaches in the world, you might want to reconsider. A recent article in The Manila Standard may indicate officials are putting a damper on all aberrant behavior.
Annoying Philippine love teams get on the Crusty Old Expat’s nerves. Admittedly, a lot of things irritate me. Nevertheless, instead of complaining to my asawa every time I see KathNiel, JaDine, or LizQuen pop up on the boob tube, I’ve decided to rant about it on my blog.
I like to be informed. Back in Central Illinois I would arrive at my job about an hour early, 5:30 am, just to read my morning newspaper. Nevertheless, “Boorish Foreigners Could Be Blacklisted from Philippines” was a headline I never saw.
Crusty Old Expat’s Iloilo Festive Walk Mall Review
Megaworld launched their 1st “lifestyle mall” in Western Visayas, the Festive Walk Mall, in Iloilo on Saturday, June 30th, 2018. This is the Crusty Old Expat’s Iloilo Festive Walk Mall Review. My asawa and I took a 150 peso ($3) taxi ride across Iloilo City Proper to check out this latest shopping mecca. That’s my lovely spouse in the lead photo. She’s not pissed at me (this time.) The sun was making her squint. Really! We had an enjoyable time roaming this 90,000 square meter shopping, dining, and entertainment mega-complex.
