My Kids on Siquijor in 1 Day

Some of you may know by now that my Missus has 2 lovely kids. While they are physically not mine, they are my absolute pride. They both developed into great young adults with each of them developing a great personality. On a little bit quieter the other one a little bit showier.

Once Again

So once again I am sitting in an airport in front of a gate waiting to board tan AirAsia flight which brings me back to the Philippines. And once again I am looking forward to see my missus and the two monsters.  And once gain it is harder to think about how long I have to stay in Dumaguete until the next trip. In that many years I am in the Philippines it gets just more and more depressing to see how that country is just going backwards all the time.

The cool thing is, she is pretty smart, learns quick (specially the bad examples i give her) and even better, while I will take her out to the discos, Rechel will try to avoid that with all her strength … hehehe. read more

Monopoly in the Philippines

I guess most of you valuable reader know that great board-game “Monopoly”. I think this board game is not really known in the Philippines.

Monopoly has that action-card: “Go to Jail… don’t pass go….” transfering that to the PI and make it simple and understandable it would be : Go from A to B …. don’t do anything else, be focused on the task. read more
