The Dawn of a New Era

Mankind has just landed a spacecraft on a comet; developed a very promising Ebola vaccine; and somewhere on a small island in the Philippines a new website has just been born –

If you’re reading this then you’ve either given in to my social media pleading campaign, accepted one of my large cash bribes or simply stumbled across my site by accident. Whichever it is, I’m confident that you’ll enjoy reading my posts. But if you don’t, then I’m not going to beg you to stay.

The majority of my updates will be about my day-to-day life here in the Philippines: the highs, the lows and the plain in-betweens. However, I may throw the odd random post in about something completely unrelated; just to keep you on your toes.

This is my main incentive for creating this site:

My daughter Jamis
My beautiful hybrid (half-British half-Filipino) daughter Jamis.

I wanted to create something that would record all the memories of her childhood and what better than with a blog!?

Feel free to leave comments and share any posts that you like.

Thanks in advance for the support and remember, life’s too short – that’s why I’m here in the Philippines enjoying it!
