Life in the Phillipines

Published on 6/9/2012

The past week has proved to me that the contractor who installed my gate is not to be trusted as he substituted a poor quality gate instead of what was specified, the installation is crude, and it will be virtually impossible to upgrade for remote control. The Philippines celebrates it independence day on Tuesday, and our routine shopping day, yesterday was interrupted dues to road closures caused by processions with bands and dancers who were also celebrating the foundation of the state of Zanorte. Our quest was to find a book store where we could purchase a holy Bible King James version in English. Books are hard to find in Dipolog city and looking online we found references to a book store in Friendly Mart, so we went there and the store guide pointed to the fourth floor, but no sign of any books, however a further search revealed a small section in the stationary department and I was able to purchase a English(US) dictionary, but no sign of a bible. When locals refer to English here they are actually talking about American English many do not realise that, English spellings and meanings are different in American English. Words such as colour spelt as color and trousers are referred to as pants in American. Security in out gated sub-division is being beefed up following a couple of break ins in another estate, until now the security guards tended to let anyone in. they are now planning a possible wireless entry system, security cameras and also radios for the security guards rather than mobile phones.
