My frist Bike 我的第一台單車



This is my frist bike.
I spent 4000 NTD to buy it for traveling around Taiwan island.
I went around Taiwan island and Peng-Hu island with it.
It came with me to go mountains and sea islands.
Last, I gave it to my friend who have no a bike as I decided to go to Manila.



這是我的第一台運動單車
當初花了4000塊台幣買來、為了環島
使用Shimano Acera,雖然很初階,但耐操度十足。

我曾用這台車在台灣環島、到澎湖環島,
陪我上山下海。

最後,在我決定到馬尼拉時,
我將這台陪了我好幾年的第一台單車送給一位缺單車的朋友。

the Job will Come Soon 即將來到的工作



If I am lucky, I will get one job in The Enterprise Center.
幸運的話,未來就可以在這邊上班了。
In order to apply her Student Visa, we went to Bueau of Quarantine.
It is one simple place.

Dont doubt.there is their office.


為了辦理她的學簽,
我們去菲律賓檢疫局。
好簡單的地方。

不要懷疑,這就是辦公室。





This was an experience of haircut in the Korean barbershop in March,2009.
I felt not very good.
Maybe I will try to have a haircut in Philippine barbershops.


這是之前三月時在韓國店剪頭髮的經驗,
沒有覺得非常好。
個人希望可以的話,
換換菲律賓人來剪可能會比較好。





To Find the New Condo 找新的公寓

As we were the new arrivals in Manila, we found lots of house for rent.
剛來菲律賓馬尼拉時,我們找過許多房子。





Even any motel was found by us.(4000Piso/one Month)
甚至Motel都去找過了。(一個月4000披索、折合台幣2800元)

However, we were not satistified with those houses.
但都沒有滿意的。

We spent half a month living on our friend's house.
有將近半個月的時間我們在朋友家打地舖暫住。


Last, we found our condo.
最後我們找到了我們居住的地方。




It is different with any building in Taiwan.
The structure is double deck.
跟台灣建築物很不一樣,
是樓中樓的設計。




The rent is high, (but) otherwise the house is fine.
只是房租有點貴到。

We were being groomers ,and cut her fur.
我們自己當起寵物美容師、將她修剪了一番。

Cat Litter 貓砂

They said that Filipinos sell only Non-clumping conventional litter , no clumping litter.

But we don't know if it is right, we will make sure it.
I will report it as I get the new infomations about cat litter of Manila.

Clumping litter can forms a solid mass when wet. We only clean clumps in a litter box.

Like this:
Non-clumping conventional litter that is made by crack a rock in Philippines is cleaner than normal sand, but there is no deodorization for cats' urine and faeces.

It can't absorb urine and urine will fall down the bottom of a box like compost.
When cleaning it , we almost give up all litter of the box.





聽說菲律賓目前販售的貓砂只有非凝結砂、 還沒有凝結砂。
不過這是聽說,還是要去查證。
有最新的結果,我會再上來報告記錄。

所謂的凝結砂就是會吸收液體,將貓尿液結成塊狀,清理時只須清理結塊部分。

如圖:
而菲律賓的販售的非凝結砂只是一般的砂,對於貓尿就沒什麼除臭力了。
僅經過一些處理程序的砂子,多由石塊擊碎製成,跟一般路邊的砂比起來,比較清潔衛生,而且乾燥無異味。

但無法吸收尿液,會直接流到盆底,好像在做堆肥一樣。且清理時,幾乎都是整盆倒掉。

Desk Lamp (for reading) 檯燈

Filipinos seem not to pay attention to desk lamp (for reading.)
It may be a matter of a lower percentage of near-sightedness.
If they don't worry near-sightedness, why do they spend money on desk lamp?
Or other reasons?

Basilly, only two brands you can buy are in Philippines.
They are Omni and Qusun. (no Philip and Osram, unlike in Taiwan)
Furthermore, they are lower Watt lights.

We couldn't find any one that more than 20 watt. (only 7w, 9w, or 15w)
However, ones that are 20 watt up are popular in Taiwan.

We bought Omni 20 watt desk lamps that are the max watts in Philippines.


Of course, we saw LED desk lamps, but they are out of our budget (more than 5000 Piso).

It may be one good business to import more brands of reading desk lamps.


I have some projects about this.
Does any reader have an interest in this?
Please contract with me.











菲律賓人似乎不注重閱讀檯燈。

也可能跟他們近視普及率不高有點關係
既然沒有近視的隱憂
又還必把錢花在檯燈上呢?
或者有其他的原因?

基本上,菲律賓市場上可以買的到的檯燈就兩個品牌。
只有兩家廠商 Qusun 和 Omni (沒有我們在台灣 常見的 飛利浦或歐斯朗)
且瓦數也低的可憐
找不到20W以上的桌燈(常見7W 或 9W、最大隻找到15W)
然而,在台灣20W以上的燈是很常見的。

我們在這邊可以買到的最亮的檯燈是Omni 15W這款


當然市場上還有看到LED檯燈、價位在5000Piso以上。


或許這是個不錯的商機,
將多元化的閱讀檯燈引進菲律賓市場..

我目前有幾個備案
有讀者有興趣的嗎?歡迎跟我聯絡



Bicycle 單車



Since I decided to come Manila, I sold all my bicycles.
I want to write some articles about bicycles in order to compensate for my desire of riding in Manila.

自從決定要來馬尼拉時,我賣掉了我的所有單車。
我想寫點關於單車的系列、以嚐我想騎車在馬尼拉的渴望之心。




I can write in the blog with both languages.
One reason is that I am in foreign and want to practice English.
Another reason is that the blog is main for Filipinos, not only for Chinese/Taiwnese.

I have many thoughts after being in Philippines.
Manila is more international than that I think, and there are foreigners everywhere.
The residents in here are happy ,and they accept this fate. (althought somebody is lazy and pass the buck)

I hope that I can do some business in Philippines.
To give different choice to Filipinos by introducing multivariant goods.

我會使用雙語寫作,
一方面我人在國外、我想練習英文。
二方面這部落格是希望寫給菲律賓網友看,而不是侷限於華人。

來到菲律賓我有許多感想心得,
馬尼拉比我的故鄉台中還要國際化、到處都可以看的到外國人。
這邊的人民也比台灣快樂,更為認命(雖然很懶惰、也很會卸責)

我希望自己能在菲律賓做生意,
引進代理多元化的產品、
給菲律賓不一樣的氣象。
There are one cheaper solution.

If you can buy one ASUS WL-HDD and flash the ROM with koppel,
you will use it for USB dongle modem.

ASUS WL-HDD is the cheapest choice.
It costs under 2000 Piso.







It is sold in my sulit.

The merit of the name is easy to speak double syllable.

There are some photos about mei-mei and us.


妹妹她就像我們的女兒,
這裡有幾張妹妹和我們的照片。





Cartimar is the second Pet Street that we know so far in Manila.

It is more clean and more beautiful, and they will provice the paper for their animal. We saw many Chow Chow on that day.


Cartimar 是我們在馬尼拉所知道的第二條寵物大街。
比起RECTO、乾淨漂亮很多,賣的寵物有證書也比較有保障。
當天我們看到好多鬆獅犬。
