  1. Didn't read the article because I don't want to spoil it. The associations running through my mind. Are you technically stripped to the waist if you wear a hat?

    Philippine Ambulances

    Sadly Mike, once you yield the lane, the idiot drafting behind the ambulance has the right of way because you are now the same as any other traffic entering the lane. I get over too and I expect nobody to courteously let me back in. It is what it is.
  3. I have experienced this less than lovely moment twice. I think the problem was you are dealing with inexperienced new hires at the low prestige job of check in. As soon as someone who looks like they have graduated from check in arrives, the problem disappears. This trip I learned something else. Don't bother to wait in an automated check in line. My passport is beat up enough that the machine can't reliably read it. I will go directly where they send people when there is a problem. That line was long too, but better than waiting in two lines.
  4. Frankly, I would tear out the illegal stuff and wait for nature to reclaim it too. Clean up is fairly expensive and jungle or ocean will reclaim a lot if you just keep out of the way and let it get on with it for 6 months.
  5. My return ticket this timewas 9 months in the future and no problems. In the past, 11 months, no problems.

    Car Emergency Kit

    If there is any room left after the emergency kit, I load some passengers on
  7. None needed at my place really, unless I have a lithium ion fire.

    PLDT allotted bandwidth for the day used up. Check at midnight to see if it's "fixed". I don't mean they are limiting you, I mean they are limiting everyone so they don't have to buy more bandwidth.

    USD or PHP for credit card purchases

    I have a BDO cash card. I think anyone can get one. It's just a prepaid debit card you can load at a BDO ATM. 50k php limit for charges per day. I mostly use it for Lazada purchases.

    Homesick for good Pizza

    Sadly, my SM mall doesn't. Shakey's is the best they can do.

    Homesick for good Pizza

    I would like to find a good 1k php pizza, found a few places that would gladly charge that much for a cheeze whiz pizza, but none that were actually worth it.

    Rain, rain, go away!

    Heavy rain for a few hours then gone here in Pili. Sounds like the storm stalled directly over you OMW.

    Hail Bigger Than Baseballs

    I had a brainless cousin who let the dog out during softball size hailstorm. Mistake one. I had to tackle the idiot to keep him from going after the dog who sensibly crawled under a car. I used to love driving around in my 64 Ford Falcon, body made of 14 Gage iron, not tin. Golf ball sized hail would shatter when it hit that car, shattered hail collected around the wipers like snow.
  14. My local SM was giving 52.75 per $1USD at noon yesterday.
  15. Glad to hear it. I have some just because money coming in. I can't really complain about the rates I have been getting recently.
