Update: SOLEX has been adopted by a wonderful family!
Solex is a 2-3 year old Shih Tzu who was pulled from a high-kill pound in Okinawa by the rescue group Doggies Inc. He is a very friendly and sociable boy who gets along with other dogs and kids. He is great on a lead and is puppy-pad trained. Solex has short legs so he has a hard time jumping on your furniture! He has been neutered and vaccinated (8 way combo shot, rabies) and has received his first dose of Frontline and Heartgard. Solex wants to snuggle you and sit on your lap. You know you (or someone you know) wants to adopt an adorable Muppet-pup! He is being fostered at my place in Tokyo and is looking to meet his future family. Adoption fee is 14,000 yen. Please contact me or Doggies Inc. and please share!
種類はシーズーで現在２～３歳の男の子です。この犬は沖縄の保健所から動物保護団体Doggies Inc.によって助けられました。とても人懐っこく社交的で、他の犬や子供とも仲良くできますよ。足が短いので、椅子やテーブルの上にのって暴れることもありません（笑）。また、トイレもペットシートの上にできるよう訓練されています。去勢手術、８種類のワクチン、ダニの処理、フィラリアの注射も既に済ませ準備万端。あなたに寄り添い、ひざの上に乗ることを待ち焦がれてます！とっても可愛い子なので、きっとずぅ～っと一緒にいたくなるはず！現在は東京にある私の家で過ごしながら、新しい家族を探しています。養子縁組にかかる費用は￥14,000です。ご興味がある方は是非、私（もしくはDoggies Inc.）までご連絡のほど、お願いいたします。シェアもお願いします！
Thank you Doggies Inc., Bedell family, and Blaine and Nobuko Hoy for rescuing/sponsoring/helping with his vetting and transport fees!

Back to Manila, sprawling city with lots of people. Friendly people! With really great English (one of the PI's national languages). I learned a few phrases of Tagalog but even Tagalog is only one of the many languages and is not spoken everywhere.
Seventh Day Adventist Hospital cafeteria. A weird place to eat on vacation, I know, and kinda hard to find, but I was really happy once we did. The entire cafeteria is vegetarian, and included many veg versions of local dishes. Score!
Manila, you are pretty.

Boracay is just beautiful. Beaches, sand, a few restaurants, a few moto-taxis, but it's not over the top. There are plenty of places to get away with just a short taxi ride.
Toilets are euphemistically known as "comfort rooms" in the PI.
This is what it felt like.
