Getting Readjusted to America

Well it has been three weeks I have been back in the USA and here are things I have had to readjust to, and thought I would discuss some of them. One this is the language. You might think I am joking but it is kind of strange hearing English in most places. I am an observant person and at times, my observations are from my ears instead of my eyes. In the Philippines, if I was close enough to someone to hear clearly, I...

My Second Week in Las Vegas

I am here in Las Vegas two and a half weeks now. I am sorry for not updating sooner but life has been hectic for me. Practically every day was something and if not, I was trying to relax from all the running around. One problem was with the scooter. The storage box on the rear fell off twice and went bouncing down the road. The first time the nuts on the mounting bolts loosened and fell off from the vibrations. The next...

Commission on Filipinos Overseas

As you know from reading this site, I just moved back to America a little over a week ago. Now I am preparing to file for my wives Petition for Alien Relative, or better known as Spousal Visa. To file you need to send an I-130 form “Petition for Alien Relative” and an I-325a “Biographical Data” form for both your wife and yourself. Once the petition is approved, you will need to file a G-864 Affidavit of Support...

Week One in Las Vegas

Today is my first week living in Las Vegas and back in the USA. Now is time to update my readers on my activities. On the last article, I mentioned about going to the M Resort and casino for the buffet dinner. Well as planned we went. It is not a huge seating area as I have seen in places like Circus Circus, but it is nicer and less crowded. Also the M Resort is in Henderson and was built to cater to the people living...

Arrived Safe and Well in Las Vegas

At my last post I was still in Inchon, Korea. That was a long experience. There were hotels and rest facilities but keeping on a budget I just walked around or sat at a gate area. Finally the staff manned the gate. I went up and asked if it was possible to get reseated with something with more leg room. I was afraid with the lack of sleep and the entire ordeal I might get leg cramps. I was hoping he would take pity on...

Wednesday Morning in Inchon, Korea

It is Wednesday morning and I am feeling like a zombie in the airport in Incheon, Korea. My travels started on Tuesday afternoon.  Because of the extra and excess baggage   decided to get to the airport early for my 6:30pm flight. A friend of mine with a full size pickup truck assisted us by picking Elena and I with my cargo at my house and bringing us to the airport. We arrived at Davao Airport around 2:30pm and...

Day Two of Rob and Lyn’s Adventure on Bantayan Isl...

Last Friday I published part 1 of Rob and Lyn’s trip to Cebu and Bantayn, here is the conclusion. I hope you all enjoy his story. I awake early, 4:58 am, I am back on the deck with a cup of coffee enjoying the breeze waiting for sunrise.  Lyn joins me and we have a good laugh that it is still another hour or better before sunrise. Who cares, we can take a nap later in the afternoon. Just enjoy the breeze and fresh...

One Day to Go – My Last Day in Davao

Well all, it is Monday, May 4th and I have one night left in Davao City. I have packed, organized, adjusted and now waiting for my flight tomorrow in early evening. Friday evening one couple Elena and I am friends with invited us to their house for dinner. I felt bad we never got to socialize this way in the two years I have lived here and known them. I realize a lot of the problem is his wife was in Germany a few times...

Getting there started...

Short Time and so Much to Do

When this is posted, it will be less than a week before I leave Davao and so much to do. I am writing this on Sunday. When I moved here over two years ago I had shipped many of my belongings and had all my clothes packed for almost a month before I left and just kept out things for daily clothes and last minute packing of my toiletries. This week I have to box my desktop computer and some of the things I want to bring...
