    Dipolog Dinging Dinners

    Dipilog Dinging Dinners wpuld be nice So far I have not really seen much of the place as its so hot out. The air pollution is thick and the humidity very high affected my breathing with my copd. I have been to the local markets and am enjoying buying fresh fish, chicken and pork. I have greatly enjoyed the fresh fruits and vegetables. I bought a Motercycle and had to relearn how to drive with a thousand other Asians that don't know how to. LOL so far so good. Looks like we may have found a nice place to rent close to the beach. Prices for renting are all over the place here in Galus. My wonderful Filipina is far beyound my expectations as a loving wife so far and is far more frugal than i am. I renewed my visa for the next 29 days at the Mayors office here in Dipilog. The agent is really nice and very helpful. I have wondered down the road and met some of the locals who are a bunch of drunks who love Karaoke and are more than willing to buy me drinks and laugh at me. The women surround me at the table and all want to talk to me and tell me im very handsome. I love this country. Life is good. Cheers.

    I called this the Dipilog Dingers but it was changed to Dinners. It should be call the the Dipilog Dinging Dinners. We gather on Tuesdays and Saturdays to drink and eat and have a bell on the table that we ding every time we want service. It gets quiet comical sometimes with the dinging of the bell i sware some ring it just to see the beautiful Filipina come out and smile at us.

    I been here 3 weeks now and have met a dozen guys at the Chinese Cuisine on Tuesdays and Saturdays. My Filipina and I are doing well and have been looking for a place to rent.
  7. Well that time starts very soon. 14 HRS from now I'll be headed that way and will be living the life of Riley with her on Monday. I'M stating to accually get excited about this adventure. I hope I get to meet some of you out there someday soon. Cheers and may the Swartz be with you.
  8. LOL, ya that would be my dumb luck. Her daughters don't come with the package. 1 is married into a wealthy family with a child. The other is 19 ,3 year university and has been given the Sari sari store and other things her mother has given her to finish school and put the 10 year old boy through school as well. The boy will spend vacations with us in Dipilog they live in Pagadian in the store. We have talked extensively on this very subject and she assures me we only meed to supprt our selves and her son when he is with us and she doesn't talk to mom because of her greed and lack of support for her growing up. She loves her dad and he only ask her for a bottle of wine from time to time. Now i do expect some bleeding from the pockets but am told that will not be the case. Agian time will tell.
  9. So, if i have the 28 day upon entry are they saying i can select any of those options after for a renewal? Should i also go for a renewal at day 22 to have it exstended ?
  10. I read this info on another board. They said new as of last week and it was just posted. That it could be your first renewal skipping they 59 day permit.
  11. I read that this is new as of last week but the cost is also new 13,000p up from the old price. So you don't need the 2 month option first it seems. I can't seem to find the government info confirming this.
  12. This link doesn't seem to work now. I have read that you can now extend your visa to 6 months after your 30 days. Cost is 13000p http://www.philembassy.no/news-item/long-stay-visitor-visa-extension-for-visitors-to-the-philippines
  13. Yes I had been aware of the 40 people that had died from the elections I had spoke to my girlfriend about it. She said yes that's is something you really have to watch over, fortunately she didn't go into the politics game herself this year. She gave her seat to the daughter. Unfortunately her daughter did not get elected and that was in a city far south of the island. She wants us to be in a place far away from her relatives and the people that she knows. I had just spent 3 years in the Caribbean in some little Banana Republic in the far south and had experienced many things of what you were talking about and learned a lot of life lessons especially about the gossip and the moment you open your mouth the whole town knows. I sure hope that I have learned those lessons well and will carry them forward. The crime and corruption seem to be about the same as well as the deep poverty and drug problems. I lost a great deal of my property and money to it. I realize that this is different in many ways but also see that it seems to be the same dog doung that you have to what out for. I intend to keep a much lower profile or at least try to than what i did before. I do hear what you all are saying and am not dismissing any of it, and thank you all for your honesty. Cheers
