Mistakes I Have Made in the Philippines (Part 1 – hey, it’s a long list…..)

Buying Expedition to Unitop, Dumaguete

Nicely, Sara and I experienced a couple points to pick up for the dwelling (very little plastic shelves to organize things below the kitchen counter tops, extension cords, an AC adapter, and some planter pots for our back garden) so we made the decision to head into Unitop, a area division retailer that sells very low cost products and solutions from China.  I truly like Chinese-built things, and when I was in the US, I utilized to routinely get stuff delivered about from there.  Now that I am in the Philippines, I no more time have to do that – I can just head in excess of to fantastic ole Unitop, Cangs, Tops and Bottoms, etc, in buy to get my resolve of structurally suspect, chemically-infused low cost Chinese goods!

We also tested the upper body harness for the GoPro.  I did a minor way too a lot spinning all-around in the shop, so be watchful viewing it if you have vertigo.  We also manufactured a different buying movie afterwards on at the Hypermart supermarket.  The films are not extremely exciting, but if you have not been to a office keep in the Philippines, they will give you some notion of what to count on:  Narrow aisles, brightly coloured plastic merchandise, and similarly brightly uniformed retailer employees.

I also got a opportunity to hold out with Henry from LifeBeyondtheSea final night time, sharing a few drinks (and a quite excellent pizza) at Garcias Restobar and equally superior discussion.

The rain is kicking yet again, which is nice,  as it brings the ambient temperatures down.  Yesterday was sunny and a little bit also scorching and I experienced to switch on the AC for a little bit when I was accomplishing some place of work operate in the afternoon.  Still, with our smaller rooms (and smaller sized AC’s), we are spending a lot less on energy below than we were being at Dumaguete Studio Residences, which is pleasant.   ?

Our Youtube channel carries on to increase.  This month on your own, we went from 54 subscribers to just in excess of 400 as of now.  A great deal of that is because of to Henry recommending us on his Facebook website page and Youtube starting to use us more in the Prompt Films modules.
