This is a new post to my recent wordpress blog.  I haven’t posted since before Christmas.  I really don’t know what I am going to do with this WordPress Blog yet.  I love to travel to the Philippines and it seems like the thoughts of the time I have spent there in the past have consumed all my future thoughts and dreams.  If you never travelled there it is a land that is awake with reality!  What do I mean by that? 

Whenever I leave the U.S. and land in the Philippines I am swept away with a sense of being home again for the very first time.    The smell hits you along with the humidity when you prepare to get a taxi in Manila.  You know you are in a different world when you land there. 

You will get homesick if you ever visit there.  When you board the plane after being there for a while you will be glad your back in the air conditioning but soon your memories of what transpired over your trip will haunt your mind until you are beckoned back to the place of your new homeland.  Sorry if you felt at home in the Western World but your hopes and passion will experience a shift towards the east when you have truly experienced the land of 7000 islands.  It may not be the scenery, or the warm weather, but I believe it is the people of this country that keeps me coming back.  It is called the land of a thousand smiles!  People take time to live their lives at a slow pace.  This may be a struggle for the average westerner but once you fall in sinc with the rest of the land a strange peace comes over you and you will never be the same again!

More to come!

I’am a Filipino living here in Singapore. I really enjoy reading your articles, it made me appreaciate more of my beloved home land and I thanked you for that. Mabuhay Ka!

Hi John! I am jealous of you. Liviing in Singapore is like living in a food paradise.

Yes, I do get homesick for the land I now call my adopted home country. I long to go back so bad. I love the lifestyle and the people. Just the little things. The Pandesal driver in the morning or the small kids going off to school, whatever it is it always brings me back in my mind to the Philippines!
