  1. Filipino food in PNW

    Heres where some of them are. https://www.zomato.com/seattle/restaurants/filipino Anyplace close to a military base you will find at least a couple of them.
  2. Did He ask for it?

    Did he ask for it? Well I'm sure he didn't. Too bad he got caught up it the situation that ended his life. On the other hand why was North Korea still a country the United States allows a passport holder to visit. Yet there are three countries you cannot visit on a US Passport. Those countries are, Central African Republic, Eritrea and Libya. So why wasn't North Korea on that list as they are known for the prison camps and human rights abuses? North Korea still holds other foreign nationals in their prisons hopefully they won't meet with the same fate as Otto did. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Nobody should have to die just because he has different views of the world than the Government of North Korea has. https://www.tripsavvy.com/countries-you-cant-visit-with-us-passport-3259961
  3. Bill to rename Philippines

    Well with only 2 people in the right-wing Magdalo-Party List, this bill isn't going anywhere.
  4. Prime example why I don't do my banking in the Philippines.
  5. I agree 100%. She was in a position that had alot of power. Time to make an example of her and anyone else that wants to support terrorism.
  6. Martial Law and its effects.

    Having been stationed at Clark in 77-80 it had no effect on me. You had to be off the streets by midnight. Other than that life goes on as usual.
  7. Martial Law fall out

    I was stationed at Clark from 77-80 and the Peso at the time was P7.2 to the dollar. So I don't think that ML is going to affect the current exchange rate. I can't comment on the affect it had on Visas, but there was no changes to banking or property. A high number of the bars were owned by retired military guys, but that has changed since 1991 when the military left. The only change that affected some people was having to be off the streets by midnight. So no real change for expats, but the locals that like to cause problems may not like the new rules.
  8. Debut Time is here!

    Jack I"m in the same boat as you are. Have one that starts Sr. High School next month and the other is in high school. I really don't trust some of the Tricycle Drivers here in Dumaguete so I transport them myself which I am more than happy to do.
  9. Jack that is what I was thinking, I wouldn't be surprised if the Chinese are on the top of the list, considering the recent raids on the casinos at Clark.
  10. If anyone can't comply with this simple request they should be deported. Love to see the brake down of what Countries they are from.
  11. Yes thats P320 per person on the open deck. Its P600 per person for the air conditioned deck.
  12. There is a ferry that goes to Cebu every night at approximately 11:30 pm 7 days a week.
  13. General warning for the Central Visayas

    There is no official news that say they are here in Dumaguete, although the PNP and Military are on alert, but they do that anytime a major holiday comes around. http://www.sunstar.com.ph/dumaguete/local-news/2017/04/11/pnp-afp-step-measures-while-full-alert-semana-santa-536140 But Bohol is a whole different story http://news.abs-cbn.com/news/04/13/17/bohol-villagers-evacuated-anew-amid-abu-sayyaf-threat
  14. General warning for the Central Visayas
