Stuffed – Tired Sunnies – Sunglasses Swag – Single bed you can roll up, a bit like a sleeping bag. Tea – Dinner Tinny – Can of beer or small boat Thongs – Flip Flops. Do not be alarmed if your new found Australian friend asks you to wear thongs to the beach. They are most likely expressing their concern of the hot sand on your delicate feet. True Blue – Genuinely Australian Tucker – Food. ‘Bush Tucker’ tends to be food found in the Outback such as witchety grubs. Two Up – A gambling game played on Anzac day. U-IE – to take a U-Turn when driving Up Yourself – Stuck up Woop Woop – middle of nowhere “he lives out woop woop” Ya – You Yous – (youse) plural of you! Some of these words may not be as commonly used these days, but you might still hear them being used ironically or by older Australians.
  2. Everything depends on where you are in the Philippines July 10, 2020 ALTHOUGH backriding on motorcycles is now allowed again, the officials from the Department of the Interior and Local Government Central Visayas (DILG 7) and the traffic enforcers have yet to implement backriding guidelines. On July 9, 2020, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año announce that motorcycle backriding for couples will be permitted starting Friday, July 10, 2020. However, Michael Braga, DILG 7 information officer, in a text message sent to SunStar Cebu, said that as of Friday afternoon, they have yet to receive instructions or guidelines on the resumption of the motorcycle backriding for couples in areas under general community quarantine and modified general community quarantine. In Mandaue City, Arnold Malig-on, the Traffic Enforcer Agency of Mandaue (Team) operations chief, told Sunstar Cebu that they have not implemented backriding since there is no official memorandum from the DILG. Malig-on said that the Philippine National Police (PNP) will be the one to make the guidelines to be implemented. He said once the guidelines from the PNP will be handed out to them, they will implement them. On July 9, the traffic enforcers spotted several couples that have started to backride on motorcycles on their way to work. As they have not yet received the guidelines, Malig-on said they would only call out the motorcyclists with their partners to inform them that Mandaue City has not yet implemented the backriding rules. Most of these riders are from the mountain barangays of Mandaue City. “We did not apprehend them nor did we issue any citation,” said Malig-on. Although backriding is allowed, Malig-on clarified that they will still not allow any motorcycle for hire or “habal-habal” to operate. He added that none of the backriding couples have set up a barrier on the motorcyle, as what Año recommended. In Malig-on’s opinion, wearing masks should be enough to protect the couples from each other and a barrier is unnecessary. He assumes that the barriers may cause accidents or will be inconvenient for the motorcyclists when refueling https://www.sunstar.com.ph/article/1863184/Cebu/Local-News/Local-traffic-units-still-awaiting-backriding-guidelines
  3. They have a mental health program. Contact on the bottom of the page. https://www.doh.gov.ph/national-mental-health-program Or even easier find someone to help here, http://www.silakbo.ph/help/
  4. I doubt that prescribed antidepressants would be illegal. How do they deal with this as its a common problem world wide.
  5. I'm not sure but most likely a bank or card company will have more numbers or ways to contact. Actually these countries you can
  6. Im sure if you contacted them you can work it out but if you dont then nothing will change. No point changing banks as they are trying to protect you and might be something going on you dont know about..
  7. Yep, contact your bank and tell them where you are just like one would if its a credit card.
  8. I think any good GP can help with antidepressants or advice of who to see.
  9. Speaking of stats. Here is an interesting comment from Cebu city council.
  10. Take a look here, https://www.philippines-expats.com/forum/21-sending-or-exchanging-money/ , would be my first suggestion.
  11. I assume you mean Guadalupe? I believe you are allowed to travel to the airport. You will obviously need your tickets as proof. You may need a medical clearance but perhaps read up on what the airlines procedure is. But then best to ensure you are allowed into the country you are traveling to. As for your wife, if she is a citizen of the country you are going to she should be OK but if not I dont think she is allowed out of the Philippines. Be easier to wait a few more weeks to see what the next move is.
  12. Be OK if he is in Queensland as they are opening up bars and things where Victoria is heading backwards.
  13. This from another article about flights starting up. Martinez clarified that only foreign nationals stranded in the country due to the lockdown; diplomats, including their spouses and children; and other nationals with permanent residence visa can depart at NAIA. On the other hand, only returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), stranded Filipinos in other countries, and other nationals with permanent residence visas and students will be allowed to arrive at NAIA on board commercial flights, Martinez added. https://mb.com.ph/2020/07/05/travel-restrictions-easing-up-13-intl-local-airlines-back-to-naia-3-by-july-8/
