  1. I too drink it straight with a glass of water and you are right no hangover. Cut lip and fractured nose but no hangover!
  2. Dear Fonts of all Knowledge. I used to drink rather a lot of San Mig Light whilst visiting my home in the Philippines. I have decided to train myself on Emperador Light so I could fit in with the "Pass the Glass" social drinking the rest of the family follows. All was going well until Thursday night here in the UAE when the long Eid holiday started. Seems when I drink San Mig light sometimes my brain wouldn't keep up with my legs but with Emperador Light my legs can't keep up with my brain. Stood up to say goodbye to some friends in our house and fell Ass over tit. Luckily my face took the brunt of the fall. I have since taken precautions as I set about my second bottle tonight! What is your tipple and have you faced any associated dangers with it???
  3. Welcome I am up North in North Luzon. Paul
  4. AlwaysRt i have my ACR Card for residency but was just wondering about the other series on offer. Paul
  5. Hi All I heard on ABS CBN today about the Philippine Retirement Authority, designed to assist with the entry of Overseas retirees into the Philippines. Just wondering if anyone has heard of this department or maybe even used them. Seem to be a lot of services and support on offer. Interested to hear any feedback or experiences. http://www.pra.gov.ph/main/retiree_services?page=1 Paul
  6. Mark I taught myself with books and CD's in my car. CD's more effective especially with pronunciation. Also I watch Philippine news programs and have picked up bits. I would say I am 60% in understanding, 50% in speaking and 80% in reading. I am still in UAE so 2 more years before retirement and hopefully will bridge the gaps. I actually enjoy speaking and understanding the language, especially the shocked expressions when I do. Paul
  7. SonJack Can I ask what channels you get on your dish. UK ones? Paul
  8. Mine can share clothes!
  9. I had 4 children. 32, 28, 26 and 24 and 6 Grandchildren but one has passed as a Angel. My ex-wfe and my New wife are okay and I have told my children we will have a family and they accept that. How about you all? have you had to do the same? Paul
  10. I had mine done a long time ago. Remember laying there and the Dr. asked me what I did for a living. I told him I was a police Officer and he then informed me he had gotten a speeding ticket that morning as he cut my tube! A saw the smile on his face! Now my new wife and I are going to do something about it next year to start our new family. Paul
  11. Steve Buy yourself a static caravan in UK. If you let the site rent it out it pays for itself so when you want you can book yourself a few weeks each year and go back to Blighty. Use some of your monthly pension to be a travel fund and in UK if you are going to stay a couple of months get a part time job in B&Q or Tesco to cover some daily costs. No need to feel you are on the moon!
  12. Hi All I would like to ask if anyone currently in the Philippines would know when the 2018 ACR Annual reporting might start? I am planning to come over for Christmas but only have 2 weeks off work so wanted to find out when I can report so I can plan the dates as would like to do this whilst there. Any update or advice appreciated. So far I am thinking of flying in on the 21st Dec and back out on the 4th Jan with doing my reporting on the 3rd Jan 2018. Appreciate any feedback. Thanks in anticipation. Paul
