Termite Attack

On one day they fly!

We were sitting upstairs watching a movie and suddenly the TV and all lights were covered by termites.

I opened the door and ran down to the living room to switch on the lights there. Q switched off the lights upstairs and within seconds all termites found their new source of light.

Can you imagine the noise?

PS: We later left the house since the termites ate one book shelve, some parts of the staircase, a number of door frames and parts of the beautiful bamboo flooring.

Real men pray: ....they never fail.

Some believe that fatalism is the only way to survive the traffic in the Philippines. Let 'real men pray' but let us urge them to open their eyes while praying.

Fat is good, isn't it Belly Bibbo?

How to produce obesity?

Very easy: Get into a jeepney or bus and dream about your kids wellbeing as advertized along EDSA (Manila, 2005).

What the heck is 'Inu-Fiber'? Anyway, seems to sound yummy for all bibbos.

Is God enough?

If you look for culture in Manila you'd better first study the giant ads along the highways. One of my favorite ad tells us a lot about how religion shall transform the Philippines. 'No to corruption. God is enough,' sponsored by 'Couples for Christ'. Given the fact that corruption continues to be one of rampant features of this highly religious country the viewer is tempted to ask 'is God really enough?'

It's true: Fish have dry cough!

At least this Napoleon Wrasse (Palau, 2003) is showing signs of it.
