The above my friend, is unacceptable behavior. For my own well being, I must, MUST be able to
A) read my friends/loved ones blogs
B) be able chat on MSN/AIM/Google Talk
C) be able to send and receive EMAIL when I want, where I want.

I’m afraid you do NOT want to see the consequences of the above items being not upheld…………hell hath no fury like a white woman in Asia scorned……MIA (MarthaSue in Asia)…(can y’all tell I just realized I’m in Asia?? LOL)

A few more pics inside the hotel (looking out - the one on the right) today as well as palm trees…and by the way Wes, not ALL of the palms are Neutered every where in the city (some still have their nuts!)





















Christmas!

Well I have to tell you (and you Catholic ppl probably already know this—my understanding is that there are a large number of Catholics here…it is quite a religious place…I’ve seen no “strip clubs” “porn magazines” or anything at all do do with the sex trade…I know I know it’s out there (and possibly worse than ours) I’m just saying it’s not ‘in the eye’—you know like I haven’t seen the big XXX signs that you see in most large cities…..but I have seen lots of Rosaries….etc ) – Basically Freaking Christmas was still going on until a couple days ago (what ever day Epiphany was)…and I’m talking decorations in the airport, in the streets, in the mall (see pic), SANTA in the mall – (Well actually Santa was at a Coca Cola display, I couldn’t take my pic with him (or a pic of him) I had to A) buy a beverage (coke of course) and spend at least 100 pesos at an eating establishment, THEN I could draw a “ticket” – IF the ticket said I could have a picture then I could get a picture, if not out of luck!! I thought that was the strangest thing…all I wanted was a pic of Phillipino Santa in front of the Coca Cola Sign!! Sheesh!
There were Christmas carols playing in the stores….elevator Christmas music, I was singing right along…Christmas Sales too!! Anyhow it appears to be over now…just in time for Valentines day….Wonder what they’ll do for that?!
Here's quite a blurry pic of the mall 2 days ago!
So Merry Christmas All!! Have a great day at work!!
