Landed in the Philippines a few hours ago. Looking forward to meeting WordPress users in Davao and Manila! In other news, the immigration/customs forms here are sponsored by a booze company. Smartly, though, they use carbon copy so you don’t have to write the exact same thing twice, like you do in the US.

Wow! It would be an honor to meet you.. I’m not in Davao or in Manila though. Slim chance I could meet you.
I hope you enjoy your stay here in the Philippines! 🙂
Oh yeah, it’s Davao not Davoa. 🙂
hey matt, im from the philippines? what you doin’ in davao and manila? for how long would you be staying and where could i catch you? you should check out our beaches, they’re almost paradise… anyway, the liquor-sponsored immigration forms, was hilarious, and even i didnt know that (hardly leave the country u see)…. anyways enjoy your stay… MABUHAY!

Welcome to the Philippines. \ (^_^) /
Nice to know that you are in Philippines.. I do hope you will enjoy there..
I am not in Philippines as of this moment since I am working in Saudi Arabia..
I miss the opportunity of meeting you.. anyway have a great day
Actually, that is no funny matter, about that booze ad in the immigration forms. I didn’t know that an ad can be inserted in government forms!!someone is making money off them. The government is paying for those forms already so why feature an ad.
if you write more about it, it can even be big political news here. thanks for pointing out the booze ad.
btw, had i known you were coming i would have signed up for Wordcamp in Manila.
See you on Saturday! I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here.
enjoy the hospitality of the filipino people and the cuisines
lol, I love that picture.
Hope you have a great time here. If you’re in Makati, drop us a line!
You should try that booze you saw at the airport – but I hope its the beer company. When you’re in Manila, buzz me we can have beer – your beer on me, hehe 🙂
Owww. just saw the booze on the link – not the beer company 🙂
Hi MAtt! Welcome to the Philippines!
I move here 11 years ago and although things get tough here sometimes, I will never leave as this is my home for life. Enjoy your stay and thank you for all your efforts to make WordPress the best system for blogging in the world. I just start a blog and without WordPress it would not be possible.
Although your stay may be short please try and feel the true warmth of the Filipino people as there is nothing like it in the rest of the world!
omg ur in the philippines! i hope u’ll like it here! theres a LOT to see! enjoy your stay! 🙂
Thanks for the visit! Do enjoy your stay there:). too bad… If only I was there, I’d definitely be queuing up for an autograph 😛
I’m just a little voice in the World Wide Web who would like to welcome you to the Philippines.
I hope to exchange some words with you on either occasion, WordCamp Davao or WordCamp Manila, since I’ll be attending both.

Happy to know that you’re finally here in the Philippines, hoping to meet the man behind WP this Saturday. 🙂 Btw, the event, College of St. Benilde, is also where I study. 🙂
Have fun around the Philippines!
Ooh, about the customs forms. They’ve issued new forms, I wasn’t aware of that. Last time the customs form I filled out didn’t have a Tanduay ad on the bottom. 😉 Interesting.
Ahhhh.. two of the greatest inventions on earth – carbonized forms and Tanduay.
