  4. It's the first place I head for on arrival in Philippines.I tend not to buy cooked food from street vendors. I prefer the home cooked food when staying with relatives and feel it's safer.

    Philippines Toilet Etiquette

    Not the read you want when having breakfast guy's Anyway took me back to my youth when on a school trip to Belgium. As a couple of friends and I enter the gent's to our surprise a little old lady was sitting at a small table. On the table was some small change and single pieces of toilet roll, this apparently was her way of earning a wage by keeping the toilet area clean and supplying paper.......probably would cause the same shock reaction today.

    Dummagette to bohol

    Correct Dave, that's why I said "unless of course there are different types of boats" (I am so poor I once flew on a plane with an outside toilet)

    Who or what to blame?

    Sounds like the house that Jack built......sorry for the pun Jack. Actually my wife and I experienced the very same thing while sitting having refreshment's in I think, it was Robinson Mall in Cagagayan de Oro, Just after we married we were sitting on the first floor cafe area. when I heard loud popping sounds, I looked across the open area, to my surprise I saw the tiles exploding coming towards us, i turn to my wife and said look what's happening are we having an earthquake? No reply, she just up and ran towards the escalators (closely followed by her new husband I may add) glamouring down an escalator coming up shouting earthquake........earthquake. To my utter surprise nobody took any notice, we stood outside waiting for something terrible to happen, when it didn't I approached the security guard nearby to explain what we had experienced and he casually said..... " It's happening quite a lot because the building was newly built!"......Boy did I feel foolish
