Howdy all.

Halloween here in the Philippines is a little bit distinct than in the United States.  There, it’s all about dressing up like zombies, hobos, and Hello Kitty and powerful arming loads of sugary comestibles off of you neighbors.  Here, they really really don’t do all that.  In its place, it is All Saints, exactly where Filipinos from all above the state journey to cemeteries to shell out their respects to family members and cherished types.  It’s a major matter – logistically and travel sensible, it is a Massive point, and the Philippines acquiring transportation program is place to the take a look at.

Sara and I were being invited to our buddies, Ron and Lucy’s property in close by Sibulan for a small get together to share foods and good business.  The females were being questioned to dress up a little bit, but – probably recognizing us – the men were instructed just to clearly show up.  (It’s hard more than enough for us to sling on shorts and t-shirts in the morning – forget about the formalities associated in donning a costume….). 

 

Us guys don't need costumes....
Us fellas don’t need costumes….

 

Ron and Lucy ordered the land for their household again in 2008 and built it in 2012.  Ron is a retired building contractor, so the residence was designed according to his technical specs.  It’s hollow block, but a little bit extra rigid than most, and features a huge open up kitchen/dining/residing space, two roomy bedrooms, two baths (CR’s) and two other rooms that they use for storage.  The kitchen area is awesome as they have Western counter tops and actually have a stove!  And I know the stove is effective like a allure as I experienced really a several items of Ate Luch’s do-it-yourself apple pie.  Dang, I have not had serious pie for pretty some time.  Tremendous-delish.  Ron also experienced Western-style insulated windows set up which helps a large amount in maintaining the property cool.  Most importantly, he built absolutely sure that the roof was painted a mild colour to mirror most of the heat and sufficiently vented, which is a thing we really don’t have at Pink Property.   /unhappy face……

A very good amount of people showed up (Sara’s brother amongst them) and as soon as the necessary Fb image periods were being concluded, absolutely everyone dug in.  It was pot luck and there was more than adequate foodstuff to go all around.  Following the feasting, folks broke off to chat, indulge in karaoke and dance.  It was really awesome, and thanks once more to Lucy and Ron for inviting us about!!!

 

Lots of food!!
Tons of food items!!

People today often question about building homes and getting assets in the Philippines.  Be sure to keep in mind that as of this time, a foreigner still cannot individual land in the Philippines, so it has to go in his wife’s title.  Expats kvetch about this a great deal, but if just everyone could get land in the Republic, huge swathes of it would quickly be snatched up by foreign buyers.  Building labor charges are reduced in this article, but since Ron crafted it more heavy responsibility and up to spec with his electrical, windows, doorways and bolstered walls, he compensated about $50,000 USD putting it with each other.  The 1 draw back is that the backfill utilised to elevate the great deal is mostly sand and gravel, so it is gonna acquire a bit much more operate to get issues inexperienced and fairly all all around the great deal.

 

Uh, yeah.....
Uh, yeah…..

 

 

But, hey, that’s what retirement is for, proper?  Offering yourself something to do.
