    This is not meant as a bashing episode , just an observation that befuddles normal thinking. Why is it that Filipino's , in the broader sense , seem to think the rest of the world owes them something ? For what ? In their minds are they a special class above the norm compared to everybody else... My wife's father got called into the local town hall to be interviewed by the SS people , he receives a poultry 500 pesos a month as a small government pension and the department was told that he has a daughter living overseas so they want to rescind this little payment because their policy is that if you have family overseas you should not receive it ... So it appears that in these circumstance that other country's are required , by default , to support their senior citizens .... you just could not make this shit up , it really is quite laughable especially when you consider that until just recently foreign nationals living in the Philippines were not even granted the courtesy/privilege of having a seniors card. I suppose the bottom line is ...why is it always a one way street with these people , I suppose everyone with white skin is a millionaire ..right ?

    Let me add to that. My family is a remember of a government program called 4Ps. Their aim is to subsidize the family cost of living by giving money to each family every quarter. The amount they give depends on how many children there are in the family and the income of the parents. My family receives more or less 3k per quarter. My parents do not have stable income until three months ago and there are 9 mouths to feed. Basically, my family receives 9k from the government annually. My mom is a very active member of the organization. She does duty like cleaning the school or the baragangay hall. Mom is also the President of "Women", another government organization training women how to create livelihood, like baking and cooking. Our neighbor keeps complaining that my family should not be a member because their eldest daughter, me, is with a foreigner. When my father heard this, he confronted the neighbor and told them, I am not giving them any money which is true. I do not give them any money unless there is work I need them to do and I pay them labor. The way my fellow Filipinos see my partner before used to piss me off but not anymore. Sadly, anyone who is barely surviving could never think pass survival mode. Any human who is barely surviving could only think for themselves. All they could think about is how can they survive even if this means stepping on others rights. They cannot see the bigger picture. It is not that they can not think or that they are damn, it is just that they could not think outside of the box for never been out of the box.

    And nothing will change unless the people like this in positions of authority are brought to answer for their abuse. Nobody complains, so the abuser will just keep on abusing. Sometimes one must complain just because it is the right thing to do.

    RETIRED HUSBAND: (everywhere) After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart,. unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife's like most women-loves to browse & leaves me with endless time to fulfill. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Walmart: Dear Mrs. Harris: Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion our store. We cannot tolerate his behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras: *1 June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking *2 July 2: Set all of the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5 minute intervals. *3 July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom. *4 July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and received a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time, and costing the company money. We don't have a Code 3. *5 August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway. *6 August 14: Moved a ,'CAUTION-WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area. *7 August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which 20 children obliged. *8 August 23: When a clerk asked if they can help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't people just leave me alone? EMT's were called. *9 September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose. *10 September 10: While handling the guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were. *11 October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming 'Mission Impossible' theme. *12 October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna Look' using different size funnels. *13 October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yell 'Pick Me! Pick Me!'. *14 October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed,' OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!' *15 Took a box of condoms to the check out clerk and ask where is the fitting room? *And last, but not least. *16 October 23: Went into the fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here. one of the clerks passed out. If you don't send this to your dearest friend, you will be depriving them of some good humor. Enjoy life, it has an expiration date

    The previous owner of Gie Gie's, Ron, was a good friend of mine for 15+ years. He ran food/bar/resort businesses here for 15 years, and never had a problem. Unfortunately, he developed Cancer and passed away recently. This guy bought him out and took over March 1st, and is dead 2 months later. He may have broke some rules, but just running a business was not it.

    Get into the nice warm shower, look for the soap and its gone. A nude dash to the cupboard to get more but there they are, a six pack wrapped in tough plastic like its ready to ship to the moon! Back to the shower and try to get at that bloody soup! First to attack the six pack wrap.. nearly need a bloody chainsaw to cut it open. Much slipping, dropping, cursing and finally the separate soap pack is exposed but its also wrapped in tough plastic so away we go again, teeth (what's left of hem), slippery fingers trying to tear the packing until finally success. All this rootin' around just to get a cake of soap! Now is it just me gettin' old and more cantankerous or are these manufacturers selling us more packing than product?

    While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay?" As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low cut blouse with cleavage to die for... "I'm okay I think," I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look. She said, “Get in and I’ll take you home so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head.” "That's nice of you," I answered, "but I don't think my wife will like me doing that!" "Oh, come now, I’m a nurse," she insisted. "I need to see if you have any more scrapes and then treat them properly." Well, she was really pretty and very persuasive. Being sort of shaken and weak, I agreed, but repeated, "I'm sure my wife won't like this." We arrived at her place which was just a few miles away and, after a couple of cold beers and the bandaging, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better, but I know my wife is going to be really upset so I'd better go now." "Don't be silly!" she said with a smile, while unbuttoning her blouse exposing the most beautiful set of boobs I’ve ever seen. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?" "Still in the ditch with my Harley, I guess."

    Makes you think about how much that goes on that we don't know about and just trust others to be doing the right things all along. This could have ended in a very bad way..

    When my kid was born in Butuan sixteen years ago we get a birth certificate saying she was 4 kilograms and two ounces. I mean that's hilarious in a way. One system for kilos and another for the ounces. Didn't bother me in the least and we find it funny to this day.

    My MIL has (and uses) a senior citizen card, and I am obviously a foreigner. Everybody in their neighborhood knows there is a foreigner in the family. What is the difference? I think the case of the barangay captain denying the wife a senior citizen card because her husband is a foreigner is just a case of a minor politician or official trying to exert more power than he really has. I'm fairly sure that he could be made to back down from his position if the wife wants to push it. His stance has no basis in law, and that could be pointed out to him just by giving a copy of the law to him (or reading it to him). I have found that this kind of politician only takes advantage of those people who allow themselves to be bullied.

    That's what I say at 75 years young. Save for who ? And why ? Let them earn their own money, My plans are to be cremated quickly but not slow roasted. I may be a nut but not a honey roasted peanut. An accountant friend of mine used to say, if you don't die broke you did not make good use of your money while you were alive. I am on target as far as I can tell.

    Lol...I got ticketed for jaywalking in Cebu City 3 years ago. So wild. Cop wrote a ticket and asked me to write my name on it. Stunned and confused, I wrote "Jon Bon Jovi" as my name. He then took my p50 fine and it was over. I think I still have my carbon copy of it somewhere here.

    Well for all we know at this stage there could be half a dozen or so "thou shall not" rules broken .... thou shall not covet the wife/girlfriend of another man is another major one here in the PI , but at this stage all I see is assumptions .... so until the unreliable press releases some half truths or facts we are all just guessing as to the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate man's death.
