John and I are so happy to be back in the Philippines.  And not just because we are escaping snowstorms back home.

We will be returning to friends and familiar faces (Bohol!) And visiting for the first time places we've only heard of like Davao (Mindanao!), Baguio (everyone says it's beautiful and cold) and of course Bacolod. After so many years of stories of Joel and Mario's college days we'll finally visit the scene of the crime.


  1. hi are these dates for february or july?

  2. Thanks for bringing 'Amigo' back to us! I'll be watching later tonight!!!

  3. Great to finally see "Amigo" on its way. Can't wait to check it out. Btw, is there even the slightest chance we'll ever see a DVD or, preferably, Blu-ray release of the great "City of Hope"? I only saw it once - in a terrible German-dubbed version - and would love to re-visit this wonderful film.

  4. Hi Pon, these are all February dates.
