This is one mans slightly cynical view of the Philippines, a group of islands tucked between the South China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. These are his experiences as a middle-aged foreigner living on a tiny island where there are no cars and fewer than 3,000 people. He is the only Englishman in the village. His snapshots of daily life and incidents that perhaps anywhere else in the world would come under the headings of Are you sure? and Really? are designed to entertain, amuse, and perhaps even tempt you to visit the Philippines.

About the Author
Graham Barton is an Englishman. Having lived for most of his life in the cold, wet, dismal climate of England, he decided to spend his twilight years in the Philippines. At the age of nineteen, Graham set up and operated a successful company ... Battle Orders Ltd., which specialized in weapons, arms, and armoury for the movies. Having visited the Philippines during his travels, he developed a working relationship with Emily Poyos, and together they bought land on a tiny island called Higatangan and opened the now-thriving Emponet Barton Beach Resort. His experiences of life in the Philippines led him to produce an affectionate tongue-in-cheek look at this fascinating yet sometimes annoying group of islands. His hobbies of Latin and ballroom dancing, and the martial arts are so much more enjoyable under the delightful hot sun of the Philippines.
