    I read about this in the Star this am. I just can't imagine how people like this do things like this. It's unimaginable for me. What the hell brings someone to feel the need to kill someone. Can't wrap my mind around it.

    Dobropožalovat'! Welcome Alexander! Digital Freelancer? Is that a Russian cyber warfare specialist? Just kidding..... If I may Dan (Old55)......additionally the term "kano" came from the Spanish description -- "Americano". You will also be called Hey Joe, which was a term of endearment for the American soldiers during WWII. I think that some of the lessons learned from the seasoned "kano" is learning or forcing yourself to adjust your tolerance level about everyday living in PI. For example, you have excellent internet connections but noisy interference. And I'm talking about your neighbors, blasting their 4 megawatt speaker aimed at your bedroom window. Or how about you live in a quiet neighborhood but piss poor connections or your connection has been hijacked or compromised. I don't recommend settling down right away. After all, there are 7,000 islands plus that you can explore all the possibilities and then after several months, pick the top three. And have them all live with you, like a triple sandwich......he, he. Udači! Respectfully Jake

    My gf makes a mean Chop Suey. About 80% veggies and the rest chicken. She says she would make it more but that the veggies are too expensive. I could care less about the price but she has her mind set. She grew up dirt poor so she likes the plants that she can get for free like Malunggay, Kang kong if that's how it's spelled, Pichay and other free or cheap stuff. It's her comfort food that she likes to cook up with the dried fish that stinks up the whole house. I don't mind it though cuz it makes her happy. If only she was that thrifty when she buys clothes.

    I mean under normal conditions and not when she is angry with you or horny. As for your children or step children, do they have a name for you? Not behind your back but when speaking to you. My grandsons in the states call me grandpa. My only grand daughter calls me "Wampa". Her way of saying grandpa. My wife calls me "honey". My wife asked me what should my stepson call me? Should it be "dad" or by my first name or what? Good question. I suggested he call me "wampa" like my grand daughter. It works. He may have felt awkward calling me "dad" and disrespectful calling me by my first name. Now, the local kids call me "wampa". Is that cool or what.

    What I tend to recognise here is if one is personally dealing with Filipinos as opposed to casually running into them situation is different. The examples I gave were slowing car to allow pedestrians to cross, in this case the only recognition is the car behind blasting his horn. Also door opening, in your case your having personal dealings, I agree and have same experience.

    We need to wait for the release of an autopsy to learn the cause of death. If it is an overdose, the two would have been better off reporting it rather than trying to dump the body. Now they face all kinds of charges that will keep them in jail for many years.

    At this stage I have not seen anything about the cause of her death. Maybe she drug overdosed.

    It might also depend on the social status of the people you deal with. I do think that most Filipinos express gratitude when you treat them kindly. The wealthier Filipinos are the ones that seem to think they are better. Just got back from my afternoon drive and was held up at a busy intersection with a Wang Wang group going through. No Govt. plates but plenty of police escorts. 3rd time this month.

    Did you find the bench, I might have to join the line. Everything has become real expensive in the Philippines. But like they say it’s always fun here. I have not found one person smiling yet. Kanu oldutot

    I know that the post is about finding a good local pizza place, but as an alternative, with the many imported ingredients found here in the supermarkets and S&R, you can make a great pizza to your liking at home, given that you have an oven.:)

    Wait until the first time that you take her to America. There are many things that she will have never seen before like automatic water and dryers in public washrooms. After my wife's first trip, when we returned, there was a family gathering whereby she told them about all the new things that she saw and how she solved them. It was hilarious.

    First thing I had to teach my wife was to put the lid down. They never had a seat, much less a lid.

    I don't understand this controversy at all. Doesn't everyone, male and female, put the lid down? So everyone has something to lift up and put down. What's the problem? I keep the lid down even when by myself. Why? So when I drop something like a toothbrush/deodorant/towel/razor/etc it goes 'thump' instead of 'splash'. Maybe I am the only one who is occasionally clumsy?

    Lately my asawa has been calling me daddy. This started after I got her pregnant. I told her in the USA that will not work seeing as I'm actually old enough to be her father. I could see it now. US holding hands romantically and her calling me daddy while over weight women my age gasp.
