Much Love to All (from a Metroblogging virgin)


Good Valentines Day to all of you!!

A good day as any to jump in and introduce a new face in your group! My name’s Tim, I’m from Philadelphia, but will be in the Manila area for an indeterminate amount of time (6+ months at least), along with my wife. We’ve really enjoyed keeping up our personal blog for the benefit of friends and family to stay in touch with us, and I hope I can provide a unique voice and perspective to the quality writers already posting on Metroblogging Manila!

Please note that I fully intend to offend no one; I ask your advance forgiveness for any naive and uninformed comments coming from a US expat trying to learn the ropes of this wonderful culture!

I’m looking forward to sharing this experience with all of you, and to learning alot from your comments!!
I’m pretty much surgically attatched to my camera,so I hope you enjoy my attempts at documenting life around the area. (This first shot was a guy waiting for customers in a long line of Jeepneys in Makati this morning)
Here’s to the warm weather of Manila!! (it just snowed a 12 inches in Philly!!)

    Looking forward to those photos, Tim! Hope you enjoy Metro Manila.

    To the Metroblogging vets: keep updating those MetroExperiences; it is better reading blogs that really makes you feel you’re there, too! Happy Valentine’s to all!
