Hello ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here.
This is my second post this month. I wish I could post more but.. oh well.
My father’s in the Philippines. He left last week. It wasn’t a sudden trip, though. He had been planning this for months, but we were nevertheless surprised to see him packing Thursday night, and we were like, When are you leaving? … Tomorrow. What ! ! ” My sister goes to San Francisco twice a month to be with her boyfriend . ( He now works in Frisco ). She is supposed to go there this coming Saturday, and take Dad to the airport, but her BF called to tell her he bought tickets to a Friday night game, ( baseball or football, I don;t know), so Dad just decided to leave one week earlier. San Francisco is a 2 hour drive from our house, and he doesn’t want Mom to go on long drives anymore.
So, anyway, I wrote about a beach house we’re constructing in Boracay Island, Philippines, didn’t I ? The plan was originally a duplex, one unit for the family, and the other one for rent to tourists. Then it was changed to a 2 floor house , 6 bedrooms, 3 toilets/baths…. then 3 weeks ago, we learned that my aunt changed it again to 2 1/2 floors, 7 bedrooms, 5 t/b with a rooftop garden. What the heck ! ! Well, it is my aunt’s and my parents’ joint venture, but this is getting out of control. My aunt assured us all additional expenses would be on her. Oh–kay …… still……..
Anyway, that’s the reason why dad ‘s in the Philippines now…… to check out what the heck’s going on with with on - going construction….. and to ask the architect about the changes, although we learned it was due to the site’s topography. It’s hilly, so the architect changed the plan based on the layout of the land. The architect assured us the view would be spectacular…. though our property is not beachfront… it’s a mere 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach, so that view from the hillside will be spectacular, indeed.
So, to my readers from the Philippines, watch out for my ” promotional plugging”, ha ha. Our problem now is , this is not a simple vacation house anymore that we’ll be renting out when not in use by the owner. We’re figuring out how to run this……… now how do we classify this ? An inn? Also, to my non- Filipino readers who want to go on tropical vacation, we’ll advertise this on VRBO.com * Vacation Rental By Owner ” . Hopefully, we’ll be ready by February , 2014.
Oh, by the way, I bought a published book by a fellow WordPress blogger. Uhm, Mr. Conley ? I haven’t read it, but I promise to read it soon, and hopefully, write a review.
Hey, I’m not going to be political on this post, even though my mouth is itching to say something. One thing though…. the total non-empathy and non- compassion of the Teabagger Republicans for the needy are stunning. And to think their base constituents from Red states * (Democrats’ are BLue states * )are poorer than Blue states’. ALL … I repeat, ALL, Red states, except Texas , get more federal welfare than they give to the government. The rich Blue States, like New York, California, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, New Jersey, Maryland, etc. heavily subsidize these
So, I went political. Again. Couldn’t help it. * walks off, mumbling. *
* turns around *
My Paris tour next post….. Louvre, specifically. And countdown to our Asian tour in June, 2014….. 7 1/2 months. Good day and Peace.
