  1. FYI ..... he finally announced on the ABS-CBN news tonight that he believes in one god ... allah .... all along he has been saying he is not a muslim .... just in case you were wondering or need to know ..... FYI
  2. You could always by a cheap monitor at CDR King and just plug it into your laptop but then you wouldn't be able to travel with your LT .... cheapest way out .... you could just remove the LT screen if you get a monitor as you said your keyboard comes off anyway just follow the wires back from the LT screen and disconnect them ... but not sure about that so ask someone who knows .... good luck
  3. It was reported that when Marcos was president he found or rather confiscated a large quantity of the Japanese stolen loot .... look it up n the internet and enjoy many hours of fascinating reading .... Never been bit by the treasure hunting bug here but when I lived in Florida I spent more than a few weekends on the out-laying islands around Charlotte Harbor searching for pirate treasure as well as countless hours in libraries pouring over old books and manuscripts .... met many a colorful character including L. Frank Hudson an author of 4 books on Florida treasures .... also a diver who
  4. Don't know if it is real or not but there is a store that is called LZ Boys which advertises Lazy-boy recliners on Lacson near Uratex foam .... but like I said not sure if they are legit or not .... if you check it out please let us know what you find ....
  5. I certainty hope you are not including me in the (most of you guys) as I keep my private life just that private ..... I don't associate with other ex-pats or my neighbors except to wave or say hi to my neighbors .... I have no social media accounts and never allow my picture to be taken let alone posted except for official purposes I was only pointing out MY experiences with the Brgy as pertaining to the registration .... so if my reply upset you than so be it .... I replied to your concern about your passport info being required .... for me it was not and I guess it was not for Jack ....
  6. Exactly ..... the first time I applied for my annual 13a registration I was required to go to the brgy in person to fill out a Brgy clearance .... no big deal and NO PASSPORT or passport info was required .... just a simple form with our address a picture of me and other simple questions .... am I concerned .... no not really because as many have mentioned most tricycle drivers know were you live as well as your neighbors even if you THINK you are anonymous ..... you really aren't ....
  7. Sorry Guys but I have been using Win 8.1 (came on my computer) for almost a year now and I don't see any problems with it .... none what so ever .... I upgraded (definitely not a correct term) to Win 10 for about 2 weeks and promptly went back to 8.1 .... BUT .... I have not installed any windows updates since I went back to 8.1 more 7 months ago .... and guess what ... no problems but then I don't use any of M$'s programs except 8.1 with all programs from M$ deleted except the naked OS .... I know people bitched about the charms menu popping up all the time on 8.1 but I don't run my cur
  8. Com'on guys you've been here long enough to know that every little Podunk store isn't going to carry an item that would take 10 years to sell nor would you or I if we owned the store .... I ordered a processor for my computer 4 years ago that wasn't even available in all of the Philippines but had been out for more than 6 months in the US but the supplier in Manila ordered me one just took 3 weeks to get it ... supply and demand is what it is called in Business 101 .... best to call first (if you know the number) and bring a picture of what you want ... it really helps ....
  9. You do realize that your dog will probably be put into quarantine for a while once you get here don't you ???
  10. Sorry but everyone knows there is but one cereal ...... cornflakes ...... Just kidding ..... but I do eat Special K and I loved the shredded wheat biscuits (cereal) sold by Tesco when SM used to carry it .... but as usual it was sold out about 1 month after they got it so no need to order it again .... that was 6 months ago ....
  11. Hi Mark .... there are a few of us diabetics here on the board .... me I was just diagnosed with type 2 late last year but to me it was borderline .... 160 but still needed to be controlled .... in the US I controlled it with diet and limited carbs but here not so easy so I now am on medication ..... first thing is to find a good Internal medicine Doc. .... not sure where you are going to move to but they are around .... get ready for a sticker shock .... mine charges me p350 per visit and she is excellent ..... as far as price of medications go I can't say as I'm taking medication for Diabete
  12. Springfield products are generally pretty good and are made in the US and sent here (all except cornflakes .... sorry private joke) their mayo is to me the best I have found here .... Heinz Ketchup is Heinz Ketchup and not sweet like the Filipino kind ..... I did find Vlasic pickles both the whole ones in gallon jars and the sliced ones as well as relish .... also found Jack Daniels mustard .... about 10 different flavors but all this was years ago in Ayala Cebu .... lot better food choices in Cebu than here .... Springfield brand was found in Ayala and Robinsons and they have lots of differe
  13. Mine is just like that except brown ..... ......
  14. Wish it was that simple unfortunately it doesn't work that way for the Suzuki .... even when we had the new key programed by the tech they change the code of the new key which made our old keys not work .... he had to recode our other keys to match the code he put in the new one ..... he could not put the old code in the new key ..... I assume to prevent theft .... if you order new keys it does not come with a code for your car in them it is installed at the dealership by the tech with his device and programed for that car .... it is a pretty complicated process and takes a couple of hours ...
  15. Yup we love ours .... had it for about 5 months .... we got the automatic with overdrive .... peppy little thing .... we also got the roof rack with free seat covers and floor mats from the dealer ..... BE ADVISED .... should you want an extra key made as we did it will take you 2 months to get it (ordered from India) .... then you have to get it cut as the key alone is about p5000 and Mr. Quickie usually won't do them because if they make a mistake it will ruin their day as they will have to buy you a new one .... after getting it cut you wait for the Suzuki computer tech to come and program
