ON TO SANTA FE #21

After a languid start we caught the Ceres Liner departing the North Bus Terminal at 10:20am. It was not a fun bus ride. For one thing there is an election campaign running. That means all the roads are being done up, widened, deepened, raised, repaired, sunk, over-passed or under-passed or re-surfaced as the case may […]

CEBU BOUND #20

We left the apartment on our Cebu bound trip a half minute late. But it was only because I used my lifetime of experience dealing with the ladies. Daisy had a whole raft of things that ‘needed’ doing before she left the house including cooking breakfast when there was 10 minutes to go. But my […]

RICE, RICE AND MORE RICE #19

I’ve never eaten so much damn rice in my life. In fact, I never knew there was that much. But these characters here would eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, mid-morning snack, mid-afternoon snack and a midnight feast if they got the chance. Was a time when I was a bit extreme the other way. […]

A DAY IN DAUIN #18

Tony’s Day in Dauin The three of us enjoyed the afternoon in Dauin, Pronounced ‘Dawin.’ It was a toss-up on who would have the less comfortable, back seat on the pedi. I moved fast to take it, thus displaying my male gallantry. I have to be most assertive on these matters as Daisy goes out […]

NOISE IN DUMAGUETE #15

It’s a warm one out there, 91F, +/- 33C. Same as yesterday. I love to sit outside overlooking the pool and glance up, way, way up at the coconut palms; their thick fronds stand in relief against the near cloudless deep, blue sky. There is neither pollution nor haze, the air being remarkable in its […]

BANK IN THE PHILIPPINES #14

It’s hot, the Filipino sun is blazing and I regard the tempting blue of the pool. On account of no one else around I was instructed most definitely, not to venture within during she-who-would-be-obeyd’s absence.  But then, she isn’t here. She will never know. I am taken back to the disobedience of my school days […]

FILIPINA ANGEL #13

  My head is in the clouds reading the biography of, ‘The Wright Brothers.’ Or at least it was. Orville had declined to take the American president for a spin on the grounds of safety when, to the audience’s horror, that very same afternoon he came a cropper, killing his passenger and almost writing himself […]
