From fish to flip-flops.
Following that I returned to the Casablanca for another Philippine meal of a pork curry with vegetables and rice.
This city is filled with expats who seem to lounge about sipping San Miguels along the waterfront Restobars. Occasionally their Filipina wives/girl friends show up to move them along back to their homes. From some of the talks I have had with these expats, the cost of living here is so much cheaper than if they were to stay at home, plus they get treated like kings by their companions. I guess it usually works out well for both parties. It is nice to see that some of the long time expats stay with their Filipina women way past their prime so it is more of a friendship bond than just a fling. Many of these guys could never attract such beautiful women back in their home countries. For the women it is a chance to get out of the grinding poverty that surrounds them. For many this has become a fair exchange.
Tomorrow I will take the Ceres bus north to Bacalod which will traverse the entire Negros Island.
