Discovered some shocking major upgrades at Cousin Emma’s Jade Market in Guimaras during the recent “Babes & Beer Tour.” My wife’s relative in the mango province now has coin-operated tubig (water) and kape (coffee) dispensers! I thought I was hallucinating from too many bottles of San Miguel Pale Pilsen, but it was no alcohol-fueled illusion, the Jade & Joe Michael Mrktg. Store, not to be confused with Emma’s Hollow Block Factory, had entered the modern era.
Guimaras. Sweet mangoes. Bewitching beaches. Pretty Pinays. Massive amounts of Red Horse. The perfect formula for a Sunday afternoon beer garden birthday bash in Guimaras. Retirement in paradise. It’s a tough job. But somebody has to do it.
