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 […]

SEEING THE DOCTOR

Visiting a Doctor in Dumaguete is another new experience in my continuing adventure Before going to the doctor, We’d grabbed a bite in the Jollibee. Cost me $2.50 to feed and water Daisy and me. It was good though. And so it should be for that price. Good gracious me. Inflation is out of hand. […]

DON’T KNOW ANYTHING

You Don’t Know Anything…YET. With this article I want to continue on a theme that ran in my last article about TAKING YOUR TIME. There is so MUCH about living in the Philippines that you just learn when you get here. I spent close to two years reading absolutely everything, watching all the videos from […]

THE MARKET

St. Valentine’s Day in Dumaguete – The Market Daisy thinks we should stay home. “Because so crowded.” The lady requires peace and quiet, not the hurly burly that comes with crowds celebrating. Most of Daisy’s conversations start with ‘Because.’ We aren’t sure why, that’s just the way it is. Daisy is supposed to be learning […]
