In this blog, you will find out more than you may ever wish to know about the Weiland family.
My name is Jason, and I am the writer/husband/father in this story. Flora is the wife/mother, and Zoey is the daughter. We live in the Philippines. We are not rich or famous. We not even very photogenic or Instagramable.
We love our lives and thought that some of you might be interested in a look at a real family. We have an Instagram account, but we don’t put on makeup and fancy clothes to take photos and videos.
We have pimples. I fart regularly (even though Flora often threatens to throw me in the street). Sometimes on our days off, we have been known to leave the house without showering. We eat at McDonald’s sometimes and rarely take pictures of our food.
Join us as we tell our story. If you feel inclined, leave a comment!
The blame-taker and butt-of-all-jokes. I am a writer by trade, but I’ve also been known to design a website or two to make ends meet. I moved to the Philippines 7 years ago and have been here off and on ever since. My life was a mess, but because my wife and daughter give me as much unconditional love as I want, I have thrived and turned into a decent person.
My wife is the fire that keeps our family warm. She is an online English tutor, even though English is not her native language. Lucky for me she liked old, overweight men because I got the chance to spend the rest of my life with this wonderful woman. She won’t take no for an answer, and when someone needs to be the bad guy, she volunteers readily. She has so much love to give and gives it freely.
She is the reason I get out of bed every morning. Zoey is in first grade and was on the honor roll last quarter. She is delightful and can brighten any room she wanders in. I have three older boys, and Zoey is my first girl. To say it’s been a challenge for me as an overprotective dad to have someone so outgoing in my life is an understatement. She loves her daddy!
