  1. I dont have an answer but probably best to take your own form if you dont already have it. https://pra.gov.ph/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Medical-Certificate.pdf Just wondering if there is a reason you are doing it in Makati rather than through a satellite office?
  2. I've been here for 6 years, never been mugged or know anyone personally who has been. I think you are reading the place wrong. If you were in the wrong place at the wrong time maybe but its more safer here than most places unless you do silly things like flash big money around, wear expensive things but thats the same the world over. The idea is pay attention to your surrounding's and act on your gut feeling. Don't show off and dont cause issues for your self. Yes you can keep cash to a minimum as most places have ATMs these days but if you go traveling to some places like small towns you might find only one ATM in the town and out of cash. if your worried about being mugged keep some cash in a hidden pocket or in your shoe so if you were robbed you have something to get you out of the area. Also you might want to carry your wallet in your front pocket so to not get pickpocketed, takes awhile to get used to it but you do. I doubt it. Not room staff or hotel staff but if you bring girls from the street they might be tempted to take a look while your in the bathroom. If and only if your room has a safe which is usually bigger hotels in cities and not smaller 2 star places dont allow a visitor to ever see you open it. As Dave was saying, you can test a girl by leaving a bit of change around to see if she takes it. I was suspicious once so left my wallet in a pre planned position and then took a shower while the girl was in the unit. Sure enough my wallet was not in the exact place I had left it when l retuned. Trap worked.
  3. I read many Local government's do free vax at times. No I dont mean covid vaccinations but shots for animals but might not in your area. Probably would not help if the dog is afraid as will pick up on what's going on even if done in an outdoor setting.
  4. I live in the IT Park and renting but have seen the rule book that owners get. Very thick and detailed. Tenants or owners can go to the admin office to check rules before buying or renting. Since covid rules here changed but relaxed mostly now. We used to get package's or food delivered to the door but now must be picked up out side the lobby or there's a table to leave packages. Water once again is delivered to our door. In a way its better than having unknown people roaming through the building. Who knows if someone is pretending to deliver a package but really coming to shoot you dead. Condo living is more secure and thats why some prefer a condo. Pool always charged for non guests or visitors. Covid rules were and are enforced as to what ever the rules of the day are. In another post you complained about a new security guard asking if you live there. Not sure why its a bid deal as he would not know who you are and besides bet you would not like if they let in terrorist's with bombs so they are only doing their job.. As soon as you begin living here they soon get to know you and Dave believes it has to do with what price you pay but I doubt it as they remember faces going through the lobby. As for guest visiting, always been the rule here they must register and leave ID to get a visitor pass. Overall I have no problem how most things are run here, all staff are friendly but I have lived here almost 6 years so they know me. Actually one thing I recall when moving from one tower to the other or leaving for good is you must fill out a form for release. The unit owner signs and you fill in details as to what you are removing from the building. This is to ensure no one just skips town and leaves with debts owing or steal the owners things. And to answer how to start a poll, you have to do it when you create a new topic, at the top of the editor it says content or poll. Edited Just to add. It depends on the management of a condo building and how they operate. Here the board meets every 3 months I think in normal times. A notice is put up so if anyone wants to attend they can and voice their complaints or suggestion's. Where I live it appears to be well maintained. Always doing something such as painting walkways at the entrance etc so if buying best to check out the companies other projects to see how they went.
  5. As I've said before, its usually the first time out that the will question the Filipina. Almost a requirement but if people do their homework before heading to the airport there usually wont be any problems. Soon I will take my GF out for the second time but as with the first we will be ready with, Photos of us together Lease in both names to prove we are together Certificate of work for her proving she has a job to come back to. And anything else we think of to show she is comming back. Last time she was taken for interrogation, basically answer questions on a form then get asked the same questions. Shown immigration photos, return ticket, whatever. Then they allowed her through after warning her to come back, the officer actually said something like, l better see you here on (Date). The routine is to intimidate the Filipino to see if they can break them in case they have other plans. I understand the human trafficking issue, illegal overseas job issues and criminals recruiting issues but dont know if other countries stop or question their own citizens free right to come and go as they please.
  6. But its when you stop for a pee the danger gets you.
  7. Yes I know and I was just making a point that there may not be certain natural disasters out to get us there but there is at least one. Great time to go to one of the tourist islands and buy up a few closed business. People slowly coming back but I think it will take a long time to for Thailand to recover.
  8. I dont see any problem. Yes some might look at you because of the age gap but who cares? Where are you intending on going while there?
  9. Yes but video I watched is only a few days old. The guy said it cost the equivalent to $15 USD extra to fill his tank this time and food cost have gone up just like it has here. Even Jeepneys increased the fare yesterday but my point was someone said its cheaper but may not be at the moment and for a long time.
  10. Did you forget the tsunamis that killed many?
  11. You will in most parts here like the mall otherwise you wont get in.
  12. Strange, I was watching a vlogger just yesterday and he said prices are skyrocketing in Thailand.
  13. I printed out mine awhile ago without problem. Are you going to the vax site and filling in details? then you download and print. Having said that I am still waiting for them to update since I had a booster so I can download a new certificate. If your certificate has is not showing shots then there is a part at the bottom of the site that says something like click here and you have to upload a copy of vax card. Site being upgraded at this time https://vaxcert.doh.gov.ph/
