I posted most of my pictures on my new flickr account, and I will tag and write proper captions when I return to the states.
While kicking and screaming, my relatives activated a Friendster account for me. I know, yet another social networking site. Geez. They say it's useful for keeping up with not only my relatives, but the friends (especially girls) that I've met here in the Philippines.
This stay has been amazing, I've experienced alot in just 3 weeks.

A typhoon was here earlier in the week, and left all sorts of debris on the beach. So, it was quite dirty, unlike last time in 2003 when the water was clear and the sand was white.
A few were out cleaning the beach, but there were still visitors skim-boarding.
A terrible shot on my part, but just to show that in Subic, there are mountains and beaches-what a combination.
There are usually a good amount of monkeys on the road, but on this occasion, we only saw a total of 4.
I'm guessing that there's a Korean presence in Subic because the street signs had Hangul translations.

Mt. Arayat shrouded in clouds. I've gazed upon this mountain many times as a child when visiting our family in Santa Cruz.
A private, family-owned rice paddy. Our province is also experiencing a rice shortage, and prices have skyrocketed.

And during these exchanges, a lot is lost in traslation, forming a nosebleed.

Not for the faint of heart, one must be limber if they want to succeed in taking a #2 in Japan. A callback to the Japanese toilet prank.

My cousin, 24 is finishing up his 7th (and last) year of his undergrad education. Actually, it might have been longer because filipinos graduate from high school at 16 or 17. And he hangs out with freshmen girls that are of that age-he would be in jail if this were the U.S. Anyway, I sat in with him for two classes, and his Filipino politics teacher wants me to come back next week, but I think I would rather not, because I was a distraction while there.

So the favorite sight so far in my travels would have to be my stopover in Nagoya, Japan. And I've decided that Japan is the next international destination for me.
It's so muggy here, but that was expected. I'm still nerved by the driving and the super crowded streets.
Pictures later. bye.

The second installment will air on July 21st, but I will be unable to watch it. Go U.S.A., and bring back some good memories.
..and make me proud to be a Naturalized American.
Next is my good friend Sean. I already talked about how stupid myspace mirror pictures are, but this one takes the cake. I love my friend, but he's retarted, so I'm putting his picture up here.
Ok, I might have grossed you guys out, but how ridiculous is this picture? ..And it's on his myspace page! I already asked him to take it off, but he says, "Oh, but I like that picture, I was buff back then." And lol, his caption reads, "Bringin' sexy back like JT". Damn myspacers.
Do phones get better signal in the bathroom or something?
