A view from “The Farm”
Here’s more fine filipinas that I observed at the Manggahan Festival held in the sweet mango province of the Philippines this past April. The young lady pictured below gladly posed for this photo as she clung to her cute baby daughter.
No series of articles about the Manggahan Festival, held last April in Guimaras, the sweet mango province, would be complete without a post that featured my American expat friend, The Tom Cat, aka “Brother Tom.” Tom, a bona fide Renaissance Man, is dating LenLen, one of my asawa’s countless relatives in the Philippines.
Lolo, my father-in-law, has a problem. A girlfriend. A sweetie that he can only see. A significant other that he can only converse with. It’s Easter Sunday in Guimaras, home of sweet mangoes, beautiful beaches and pretty pinays. The “intervention crew,” which consists of my asawa, Cousin Emma, Cousin Roberto and I, are zooming along the road to visit a sorhano, folk healer in the Philippines. Cousin Roberto knows one that lives near Nueva Valencia, the beach resort area of this province. We’re all piled into a tricycle on another hot summer day in the Philippines.
