Filipino Christmas Caroling in June This morning I was sitting on the terrace when some Filipino walked up and started singing.  I call it the front porch myself but that might be a phrase from the American South.  Since I was out there in my boxer shorts (common here) and t-shirt I didn’t have any…

Bantayan Island Close Up

Bantayan Island Tour

Last month I visited Bantayan and feel in love with the place! I haven’t been able to write all the articles about my first visit and I have already setup plans for a second visit. This time I’m going wind surfing!

Thought I would write about where I stayed and what it cost to get there and stay there. I’m living in Bogo City, so I’m very close.

Cebu City, Pension House Review

Palladium Suites

On our visit earlier this month to Cebu City we stayed with walking distance of Osmena Circle and the price was less than P1000 for two people.

We stayed at Palladium Suites. The room was quite small but clean, the service was good and timely we even checked in about four hours early without any kind of problem. During the night, someone did ask us what time we would checkout which was a strange request. Seemingly trying to rush us? Jessie told her before 1pm which was checkout time. Later I told Jessie that she didn’t help that girl out very much. Which was okay with me, the girl on the night shift should have never asked that. I had thought about staying a second night but since we spent so much already, I decided that wouldn’t be a good idea anyway and we headed out as we originally planned. Staying only one night.

Cebu Shopping in Pictures

Security at Duty Free in Cebu City

Shopping in Cebu City, Philippines

The first stop was Duty Free which provides a lot of items in demand by Americans. Perhaps other westerners as well, but I don’t know what those other westerners use. A lot of it are the simple things, like Spam. They have lots of Spam. There must be a massive demand for that. We picked up five cans there that were hickory smoked as that’s not available in most Filipino owned stores. The cost at Duty Free was higher than SM. When we made our way to SM, we learned that the SM chain had lowered their price from P115 to P98. I love competition, the consumer almost always wins.

Philippine Peso Trading Back to Normal

Trading on Philippine Peso vs US Dollar

The dollar to Philippine Peso trend has been virtually unchanged since December 24th. The numbers I usually watch have not been updated since the 24th. Those are the trading value and the official government rate but is slightly different than bank rates. It appears that there just has been no trading since the 24th but there’s a lot to this market I have not learned yet.
