  1. Drinking in the Philippines and the risks?

    If you say, if you say so mate πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I do have to admit that i had quite a few Emu Exports in WA (Western Australia not Washington) haha. The boss was a big fan of them and had a cooler full of them for "a few after work" in hes ute (truck for you yanks). Im not a person that spits into a glass. So whats my favorite beer? A FREE ONE. Lets just say that after those couple free Emu's i moved onto better brews at home. God i miss a Fat Yak Pale Ale... The only "Aussie" beer we have here is Fosters (didnt find ONE buy in 5 stats of Australia that had it in stock haha).
  2. Domestic craft beer in Philippines?

    If you ever visit Iloilo or Bocolod, then have a look in a pub called The Brewery. Alot of imports and local craft beers. Bit pricy as a pint will cost you almost 200pesos on avarage. Selection at supermarkets is really shit. I couldnt find any decent beers.
  3. Not if your going to Manila πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  4. Id like to add Camotes Islands near Cebu. Very laid back and minimal ammount of tourists.
  5. Drinking in the Philippines and the risks?

    They are an okey dark beer if you can find them :D. Wish they had some Pale Ales or anything with alot of hops in them. Lagers and Pilsners are just so boring and tasteless.. Theres a nice pub in Iloilo with craft beers and shitload of imports called Brewery. Only problem is that a pint costs 150-200pesos depending on the drink. They do buffet nights on special days (i last went on fathers day last year) with cheapish entry and quite good food. Once i went with wifes family during a booz ban day. Half way thru the meal i found out that the ban was only for Filipinos and me as a white guy could still enjoy a cold one (i was looking at the selection and the owner came to me asking what beer i want). Wifes sister was really pissed off on the fact that they sold beer to me and not to her πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
  6. Drinking in the Philippines and the risks?

    This is a lie. I had 3 or 4 beers with you a year ago πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  7. Drinking in the Philippines and the risks?

    Ginebra or Gilbeys gin for me. A litre costs less then the tonic to mix it with. Cant go wrong and an hangover guaranteed. All Filipino beers (mainstream ones) are shit. No taste what so ever. Almost as horrible as the XXXX and Emu Exports all the Aussi locals were drinking in the outback :D.
  8. Which passport

    My son is a duel citizen. He will leave Europe with hes Estonian passport and enter HK and Philippines with hes Filipino passport (wife will be with him and ill come later). On our way back he will exit with hes Filipino passport and enter Japan and Europe with hes Estonian passport (Japan is visa Free for most Europeans). Shouldnt be a problem aslong as we have both passports with us.
  9. Its so hot

    I dont mind the heat, but i hate the humidity. 30c in Philippines was much worse then 42c in Perth, Australia.
  10. PAL changing flight to next day?!?

    So far we have had good runs with PAL. When we fly Manila-HK-Frankfurt-Tallinn(Estonia) with Lufthansa (PAL doing the Manila-HK leg). We showed up at the airport 6 hours before (checked out of hotel and went) and asked if we could have our flight changed to earlier to make sure we had enough time in HK to make the connection. Original was 1h 20min and with the earlier flight it was over 4h. They just called the manager, she had a look (made sure there were free seats for the earlier flight) and said sure no problem :D. Just keep your cool and be polite. Its allways fun in the Philippines πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
  11. PAL changing flight to next day?!?

    Haha. I know right! AllwaysRT but since they allowed such a short stopover on one ticket, its their job to rebook us to a new flight from Manila to Iloilo. Me and Anne had a talk and we will wait until its one month before the flight. If they havent changed the flight again, she will call them (she will arrive to the Philippines over a month before me) and ask them if they are sure about the 20min connection time they now gave us or if they want to rebook our flight with a bigger stopover :D. The ticket we have is Puerto Princessa-Manila-Iloilo on one ticket. They allowed the 20 min connection with their flight change. Its totally them saying that 20min connection is enough and they will rebook us if delayed. If it was two seperate tickets, then id be worried (if both flights leave on time, theres no way in hell we will make it even with handluggage). Im going to print the flight change email out just incase they wont change the flight before hand and we miss the connection. Shows clearly we had over 3h connection before the flight change and after only 20mins.
  12. PAL changing flight to next day?!?

    We have a connecting flight with PAL on one ticket. They were the ones that changed our connection time from just under 3 hours to 20 minutes. They are fully responsible. Since its just a week sidetrip to Palawan, we dont plan to check in any luggage anyways.
  13. PAL changing flight to next day?!?

    I wonder how meny more flight changes will PAL do before our flight in 3 months. So far they have managed 6 changes in a month. With the last change they gave us a 20min connection time in Manila between our Palawan-Manila and Manila-Iloilo flights :D. I dont think we will make it :D.
  14. There are APPs for your phones with offline maps. Works fine without mobile data. No need to buy a GPS unit .. I have been using Maps.me app on my ipad. You just need to download the maps for the area your going to visit (download thru the app). So far its been all free.
  15. PAL changing flight to next day?!?

    Theres plenty of places in the world where you can get robbed or killed Bruce (even close to our home citys). Pretty sure theres plenty of turists around Puerto Princessa and El Nido. Im not to worried. I look like a bum when traveling anyways. Theres bigger fishes for them to catch :D.
