Hi!!! i am miss Secret, i just want to voice out something…. its already long time i kept inside me…
i observe and i also experience that some driver don’t care if they abuse some people around them, as long as they drive and earn money….
sometime i think, they really don’t want passenger or they just wasting there gasoline for driving around with empty passenger in there trike. coz not only one time its happen to me that when i am in town for shopping or when i will pick up my daughter in school, i ask the driver to bring me to school for example… but then they don’t take me there.. and ignore me… i understand it if they have passenger already and destination he have is opposite way or so far from the destination i want to be…..
BUT NO HE DON”T HAVE PASSENGER HE JUST CHOICE and DRIVING AROUND WITH EMPTY TRIKE.
its really makes my day bullsh………t
but take note:
if I offer double rate of fare, they accept and take me… but if i have some shopping bags with me i have to make my fare triple rate.. just for that they can bring me home….
SEE HOW NICE SOME TRICYCLE DRIVER HERE IN DUMAGUETE…. BASTOS
I am sitting on a real stormy day here on Siquijor and listen to the waves while my open water student tries to get familiar with the Recreational – Dive – Planner. As he also needs to finish some more studying I took the time and logged on the WIFI Net at Kiwi Dive Resort to check my mails.
I got an invitation mail on one of my accounts to join the biggest webpage about Dumaguete…. Hmmm, I always thought I am a partner of it, so I became quite interested in that.
The page I ended is so awful that it really made me smile a lot. A total spamming idiot who was a while ago nothing else than annoying on www.Dumagueteinfo.com started a page on a free host and tells each new guest how fantastic the side is. Most of the info’s are just copy past from other sites (including DI) and many other information are just wrong. That poor little loney -toon’s horizon goes exactly from Coco Amigos to Happy Freds and back to Sibulan when the Sun goes down. His knowledge about Dumaguete is unreal low but he belongs to that group of people who are knowing everything about anything.
After I whipped the tears from my eyes (from laughing) I logged into one of the social networks I signed up for and saw another invitation a new webpage about the Philippines. That page has one content page and a free forum. The owners are since a few month in that country but do know nothing about the PI. They did a 3 day trip to Manila and went once to Apo Island.
That was enough for my online session at that time. I do understand if Kids or students have a project and need to do something useless. But we talk here about adult persons. Are they really so stupid? I just don’t get it. I don’t talk about things I don’t know and try to convince others that this crap is the truth. It is just sad that this website-clowns are just confusing readers and people with interest in the area…
Hmmm I guess I go back to my student and teach him Dive-Planning. Nevertheless, I bookmarked those pages, so if I need a good laugh again I can find them again, as they don’t show up anywhere in google.
Sometimes I just wonder what is going on in peoples mind. Recently we had some stupid posts on Dumagueteinfo.com by a guy who is very obvious not a happy fellow. Many of our users were not that happy with that guy and used a function called “reputation”. His reputation level got that deep in the red that he couldn’t post anymore.
He cried like a little kid after a wave destroys the sandcastle. He was running around and yelling everywhere: ” Rhoody is so bad, I am banned, I am banned….”
Hey Idiot, you are not banned, you just disqualified yourself…. and it was not my decision…
That Village-idiot tried to log in with different names and got caught by our filters (and the Mod-Team). The baseline is simple. The users of DI decided that they don’t want the Village-Idiot on DI and stated that clearly in their given reputations, no matter what name he is using…
The Village-Idiot tried after that to send private mails to people, what was also not that successful
The Village-Idiot asked his friends to post his shit for him, what also did not work out..
The Village-Idiot posts on other boards with 3 different names and talks literally to himself how bad things and of course the Partners of Dumgueteinfo are…. and guess what all 3 agree to each other…
Thinking about it, I think the term Village – idiot is a bit hard….
Let’s call him Mr. Clean.
Mr. Clean earns his monthly income in helping to destroy the environment.
Mr. Clean is a racist who hates Americans and Asians.
Mr. Clean hates philippino food.
Mr. Clean hates also Philippinos and their families.
Mr. Clean hates progress and development
Mr. Clean tells everybody how “shite” everything in Dumaguete is.
Mr. Clean is the opinion that we (the DI-Team) are responsible for destroying Negros and the Philippines.
Mr. Clean chases girls behind the back of his girlfriend AND brings them down.
I actually think everybody should know at least one Village-Idiot, errrm I mean Mr. Clean, just to have a bad example and to realize how good the own life is.
I just decided to make another category here on dive-monster.
Many things going through my head where I wanna talk about but they don’t fit in any of the existing ones. There are quite personal thoughts and I guess a blog is the diary of the 21st century. Like in some of my other reports before I will insult, laugh and cry and put my salty fingers into fresh wounds
… so if you are sensible, just stop reading exactly here !!!
My life changed a lot the last few years but the biggest change was about one year ago when one of my course-directors and bosses at the dive-shop I was working was not man enough to tell me that I am fired. Kim a one of the rare real friends took little Rhoody by his hand and told him: Man, why don’t you do the same I do….
Hey, great Idea – I thought by myself- and started beer drinking and mongering around in many regions of the Philippines. After a while Kim told me…. Rhoody not that, why you don’t start a webpage, I help you to get on your feet and show you how to earn your cost of living with that.
OK-ok, sounds like work but give it a try… as I am not under financial pressure; I started a bit slow but after a 2 days or so I had my first Dollar earned. Yeah only a dollar, but it showed me that it is possible. Kim told me some secrets and helped me with ALL stupid questions I had and still have.
Now my first year of a new existence is done and there were many up’s and downs. One great thing of my life is that I am still diving a lot but I am not a slave at a Dive-Mc Donalds in Dauin. I am now diving up and down the beach, have bookings on Siquijor and help Mike at his Adventure-Diveshop. Next to all of that I am not sitting in a wanna-be-the-best dive-center and waste my life.
I can go out meet great people and know that exactly at this point I earn the money I spend on a good meal somewhere in Dumaguete.
I pissed more people off than I did in my 6 years before in the Philippines but I also met more great guys and friends. At this point I need to thank a couple of people without them I would never be at that stage I am now.
First of all Kim and Tom who showed me that things are possible (in many ways),
my little little one and her mother (couldn’t do anything without the love, energy and the support you 2 give to me).
Mike and Bruce (who are responsible that I still dive for free AND have some cold beer)
My good friend, The “Fat Austrian” (who ensures with his monster-portions that I don’t get too skinny)
All the lovely people here in the country who make me feel welcome, who make me smile, who make me happy… I am proud to be in your wonderful place as a guest…
Enough tears…. My reputation is to be a bad guy… do I wanna be one ???? yeah, 100% …. good guys are boring and go to heaven… bad guys go everywhere…
Just saw on some boards that guys asking for some advice…. and insults…. stay tuned, I am on the way
