I generally prefer to make blog entries showing off my vacations and laughing at you schmucks still working for a living. But a friend asked for a video about the electrical system here. I looked for a lot of this info before moving and did not really find much. And since it was a major concern of mine before moving, I thought I would go ahead and make the video. It got a bit long… but I do babble a lot. So to really be redundant I will repeat most of it here. I asked on a few chat forums before moving over here and, in usual internet fashion, everyone wants to be the expert and everyone wanted to be “electrical engineers” so I will try and just explain it in plain English. Like you really care if it is delta or wye configuration – and I assure you over 99% of the electricians in the Philippines don’t know the difference anyway! I mean seriously these guys argued for pages over delta & wye – and we all know that is for 3 phase anyway and does not apply much here in Filipino residential wiring.

In 2012, after 25 years in the HVAC industry, and 16 years as a single dad, I decided to retire (at 48) and move to the Philippines. I moved over here on Valentine’s Day 2013. On this blog I hope to provide some useful information – or at least links to useful information – while I chronicle my move and immersion into the Filipino lifestyle. I am a disabled Navy veteran just enjoying my life in Iloilo, Philippines. Feel free to follow my blog and my YouTube channel. Comments are always welcome!
