Welcome one and all to the 'Philippine Railway Historical Society' blogsite. This site was set up to share photos, historical pieces, comment and virtually anything else pertaining to transportation in the Philippines, with a special emphasis on rail. Occasional we vary from topic, but this is the less serious side of the hobby shining through - cause sometimes, in this miserable and uptight world, we just take ourselves a little too seriously.

If you have a question Philippine railway related, just drop us a line, maybe we can help.

Gradually Turning Pinoy!

I am often told this by all the Pinay lovelies I regularly hang out with.

Quite the honour really, and helped along greatly by my recent flirt with disaster, trying a balut. Yep managed to keep it down and thus make half my asawa's family sick in the process (they are mostly turned off by the thought of this delicacy).

One of my new years resolutions this year is to learn Mahjong, a game very commonly played in Australia by the Philo population and one that, until now, has quite frankly baffled me. To be honest, after a few hours lessons last night I am still in a bit of a cloud and suffering from severe thinkers headache.

However one is determined, I will learn it gradually. Afterall, just photographing PNR is not getting me to far through my 'Becoming Filipino Course' is it :-)
