Ya know, when I saw your post, this photo was the first thing that came into my mind-Hahaha..
Seems like you have a long wait indeed. Maybe travel around a bit. Take a laptop and head up to Subic area. Combine work with having some fun.Plenty to do as well as swimming/water sports...

Gene,

You are about right. I will be in Las Pinas near Anne and her Parents. Biggest thing I need is find is place to stay there prolly will end up bedspace again since it is just me.


I reckon I could go to the mall and watch movie, or try to get call center task early morning and that will blow 8 hours of time away lol.

Swimming pools are fun, espeically with the slide's, I have a monkey he keeps me busy and we got a puppy yesterday I also plant Papaya tree's frequently, they fruit in less than 6 months, also think of ways to better the house and yard.

When I'm not on the computer, I am very interested in photography. I am a Professional Photographer, specializing in Weddings, Christenings, Parties, Bridal Showers and Portraits, but I also do Nature, Scenic, Environmental, and Documentary photography. Because I am no longer a young person, I do spend a lot of time on the computer, at least, but no more than, 8 hours a day, unless I am away from home.

Its not exactly cheap, but the Philippines is a good place for scuba diving. I got my open water cert in Boracay about 5 years ago and since then have done 50-60 dives around the PI as well as in Thailand.

Subic is good for wreck diving as there is the USS New York, an LST, and some other ships that have been sunk/scuttled over the years.

Blue Rock and Johan's in Subic both have (last I checked) dive shops that can hook you up if you want to try an introductory dive. Price for the intro dive should be p3k or so. An open water cert package that includes everything should be in the neighborhood of p12k to p15k and individual dives after you're certified should run p2k-p3k.

Those prices were good as of 2 years ago, so it may be a bit higher now.
