  1. Thanks for your thoughts, RBM. Well... the bar refer is there and stocked. With the aircon running quietly in the background, we can both relax a bit sometimes when we are there. Two sofas are due to be delivered in maybe one to two weeks. Yesterday I found some fairly decent office type chairs. I found one that I could probably fall asleep in - that may be my pick! So... you are right, we should soon be enjoying reaping!!! I checked the water and pressure was a bit low, still ran on the roof deck, but not much. But on ground and second floor and the kitchen sink there was plenty of

  3. There is truth in what you write. A while ago I googled to see who I might know (celebrities and such) that died of Covid. I was astonished to see that all the dead were victims of "complications" of Covid. By that I mean the same complications that would have arisen if they had a very bad flu which turned to pneumonia or something similar. I do not want to get a bad flu, but neither do I like it when the world shuts down. I believe facemasks, distancing, and similar precautions are the best way to prevent the spread of any flu-like illness. The rest of the stuff, like quarantining everyo

  4. Another reason to keep the 2 services separate Tom is that Cignal have a very good customer service whilst it seems that neither Globe not PLDT can say the same. Also, Globe used to be tied in with Cignal in the way PLDT are now but no longer so it can be a pain in the ass unbundling the 2, especially if so many others are doing so at the same time - I'm not saying PLDT will break from Cignal but who knows.

  5. Thanks for your comments HK. All good advice! The glass here will go just to below the top of the wall tiles, maybe 5 cm? I got the idea from hotels we stayed at - as I posted previously. I reckoned that, if they put this sort of thing in a hotel in the Philippines... what could possibly ever go wrong? Yeah... I have some fear about slipping in the shower too. The floor tiles in the cr's have a rather "aggressive" texture so I am hoping that will help. You can count on me double checking everything. And I will also give the glass some moderate "bump" tests just to see what happe

  6. I ordered this product but after several false delivery claims I decided not to buy it. I was fed up with the false information from PLDT. They are now charging me for cancelling even though they never had stock of the mesh system. I am not the only person who this has happened to.You cannot get the billing department to answer any questions. The other person went to their office waited 5 hours and got nowhere with them.Try to phone and it just keeps you on hold,email well I don`t think the employees can read as they don`t answer. I bought an ASUS router-repeater which was 15-1700 pesos and th

  7. In Hong Kong we had glass shower enclosure as you're getting - It had 2 panels either side and the door in the middle. The panels were fixed all around with silicon and 3 brackets to the wall. They did not go full height. We were there 5 years and there was no issue BUT we never slipped in the shower to test the stability! Honestly speaking, I have a fear of such an accident and worry about exactly what Mike J describes (not necessarily your situation but in general with all-glass enclosures) in that a hard dunt will cause some flex and such a flex may be an issue at the point where th

  13. Thanks for your comments and concern, Mike. I understand and see your point. Well, the glass, itself, will be tempered so there should be no flexing. The width of the glass is also quite small so the thought is that there will be only a small moment of potential flex or stress. Not disagreeing with your comments, just my thoughts. Running the glass to the 10 foot ceiling might be safer, but it would look a bit weird seeing as the tiles only go up to about 200 cm from floor. By the way, the shower is enclosed totally with walls to ceiling on three sides - not like in that photo I foun

  14. The Public House...( Bar ) where the last part of the video was filmed is called the Philharmonic Hotel and is famous because it still has the Gents toilets from its original beginnings as a Gentlemans Club in the 1800's.....a bit off topic but thought it might be of interest.

  17. I see. The Washington Post, a totally unbiased newspaper, used third-hand information "two people briefed on the meeting" from leakers, to declare it racist. I will assume that the two levels of leakers had no agenda when they leaked the information from a private meeting. They were just trying to protect the American people and all the people of the world from this terrible, bad, bad, racist. Same for the Washington Post, owned by the wealthiest man in the world. However, I do not refute that he said that. He probably did. The problem is that the "racist in charge" is not PC, and m
