It’s an issue you probably weren’t even aware of. Having been in the blogging business for over nine years, it’s my job to notice things on the World Wide Web. Thankfully, I have an extremely talented Webmaster back in the States who corrected a problem for me. As a result, I can now post the following title for this article: “Philippines Plus: Google Secure Site.”
I’ve been writing a blog for almost seven years now. Over in Guimaras, the island province we call home, there is nothing that even remotely resembles a large super mall. We do have the Chavez Building. You could call that place a strip mall if you’ve consumed too many bottles of Red Horse.
We recently made a trip to Metro Manila. We stayed for five nights at the cozy and comfortable Stone House Hotel Pasay. Only three kilometers from the SM Mall of Asia, Stone House, doesn’t offer five-star accommodations. But it does give the budget-conscious traveler great budget options for staying in Manila.
Good news for all of you American expats living in the Philippines: Ph Peso Sinks to 6-Year Low Vs. USD. Yes, dear readers, it’s time for another exchange rate rant.
“Walk on the Wild Side, Philippines: Head Lice & Cute Chicks” is the third installment of what will become a regular feature on Philippines Plus. In an effort to reduce my gut and not go beyond a size 36 waist size, my asawa (who doesn’t need to lose an ounce) and I having been taking strolls outside the property of our new home in the Philippines.
Gather around the campfire, boys and girls, as I tell the tale of an Expat Success Story in Guimaras, the Philippines: Paul and Janeth Toplis. It’s the remarkable report of a bloke from a small island in the U.K. who recently celebrated 25 years of wedded bliss with his Filipina sweetheart. That in itself is an impressive achievement.
That’s my own lovely asawa in the photo above posing alongside some banana trees on the 13-hectare estate. Paul’s better half, Janeth, was in nearby Iloilo City shopping. Paul, who did not really care to be in the picture, and I, are both fortunate to have attractive wives that are extremely better looking than either one of us.
Frankly, pictures of Paul or yours truly are not going to drive more visitors to this website.
It’s probably a post title you’ve never seen before, “God Bless the I.R.S.,” at least not on this website, but I have to give credit where credit is due. And when it means more pesos in my pocket, well, I’m even more motivated to toss out some accolades.
