Philippines Experience

  • Philippines
    Visited 1 to 5 trips
  1. We only have the author's version of the story and he intentionally provided inaccurate information in her obituary and it's companion story in the Seattle Times at the time of her death.
  2. I understand there was a show on Filipino television last night about this article. Did anyone watch it and if so what was your opinion of the show?
  3. Things like this still happen today in the Philippines. Mother dies, father gives the kids to relatives to care for. Relatives take advantage of the child, having what should be a new addition to the family serve as unpaid labor, not getting a proper education. And it isn't just in the Philippines.
  4. Give the old maids the same pay and the girl friend nothing unless she becomes your fiance.
  5. Get a gun. Fire four shots into the ground at 3:00 am one morning. When the neighbors come to see what's going on tell the there were some guys in your yard. You think you wounded one of them but they got away. Word will get around and nobody will go in your yard in the middle of the night.
  6. Did you throw in a few rotten onions for the family, too?
  7. My small transistor radio I take to the porch when I listen to baseball games. Just like those from the Sixties.
  8. Most of the Lake Worth population is Hispanic and black. It has one of the highest violent crime rates in the nation and a low per household income. I'm not saying it's a big ghetto but I wouldn't judge the rest of South Florida by Lake Worth.
  9. If you ever ate in a better restaurant where a meal might cost you $100 you would understand some professional servers are deserving of $1,000 to $1,500 per week. I have never met someone who says pedal stool. Such a person wouldn't deserve minimum wage or be qualified to be a server in most establishments. A server must be able to communicate with their clientele.
  10. What restaurant, if you don't mind me asking?
  11. Many of us will be dead before him. It doesn't mean we can't be happy.
  12. I must have missed the line in the article that said he wasn't happy.
  13. It's actually the second time I've read about it. One more time and it's gospel.
  14. The man acted like an ass on the plane and had to be removed by force. He should have been the one paying the airline.
  15. I prefer paying less for my meal and leaving a tip that is appreciated by someone who strives to provide exemplary service than paying more for a meal and not getting the feeling that goes along with rewarding that same level of service. It brings the restaurant experience to a more personal level with the one serving me. But if I were in Australia I would adapt to their cultural norms, not complain about it being different than our way. When in Rome, do as the Romans. One way isn't better than the other, just different.
