  1. If you are thinking of working online you need to be in the city as the provinces take what`s left of everything. Mostly Islands are for visiting at weekends.
  2. It`s the bandwidth which lets the internet down here, even with 30 you can get buffering on certain sites.
  3. When I read it it stated all seniors, I also read somewhere else that if they exempt expats the free vaccines will stop. We will just have to wait and see.
  4. Sibulan Negros Oriental is the same they let all people travel and now have 14 cases so I was told. too much too soon.
  5. I am not too sure about here but in the UK the maximum length of any hose to a gas appliance was 1.5 meters. Judging by the length of any hose I have bought here I would say it is. This would limit the location of any cooker here and it is not always feasible to have it outside. So these shut off valves are a good idea.
  6. I first went to Thailand in 96 it was pretty much like this place is now for infrastructure. Thailand increased it`s tourism and manufacturing ability and look at the place now. Here it is so much paperwork along with the ownership of company`s which puts industry off. It needs to be a change all round to make a real difference.
  7. That`s more like it 7 cases a month.
  8. They have just announced the same in Negros oriental/ UST IN: Maayo Shipping is resuming its trips from Cebu to Negros Oriental and vice-versa starting tomorrow, March 8, 2021. The first trip is at 6 a.m. It will be resuming its SIBULAN-LILOAN, SANTANDER TRIPS and VICE VERSA, the shipping company announced tonight. Reminders from Maayo Shipping: "For CEBU island bound RO-RO cargoes/passengers, there will be no documents needed before boarding. However, for NEGROS island bound RO-RO cargoes/passengers, before travelling, kindly coordinate with your respective LGUs for the necessary documents to be presented to the Coast Guard Officers in the Lilo-an port before boarding." The company also reminded passengers to continue practicing health standards, such as wearing of face masks and face shields, and observing social distancing. #NewsBite | via Raffy Cabristante, 106.3 Yes The Best News Director
  9. I would not tie myself to anyplace until I lived there for a while. Siquijor looks very nice but is also very small and in reality not much to do once you have been there a month or so. Good luck Ross you never know it might be the perfect place for you the rest is just my opinion/experience here in the Philippines.
  10. Yes mine is built into the inverter. Always right has had this setup for a few years and his is still going strong.
  11. I read a story earlier that the UK has sent 500,000 doses over here. Yes only a small amount but if other countries follow suit then they will soon get through this I`m sure.
  12. My wife and 2 friends want to visit their families in Dalaguete Cebu do this is good news.
  13. Their name why would I be owning it? So I didn`t buy 3 lots for my wife, of course you can buy land you just cannot own it under normal circumstances.
  14. Buy a piece of land and put it in their name.
  15. That is what I have but with 1 battery it has worked for 6 hours watching tv on my pc and still had charge left. As for surge protecting the rest of the house on the important stuff I have individual devices.1 THING TO BE AWARE OF do not use an extension lead which has a surge protector in as this can damage the unit. I have the T shirt for that.
  16. very time I have been for an NBI clearance I have been flagged. When I asked I was told "oh we do that to all foreigners." Can you imagine the line at the entry points.
  17. I would willingly pay for some locals to get the jab but I don`t like to buy somebody a new car.
  18. It`s not so much the cost as the fact that we are usually charged more than locals which irks me.
  19. If the wiring is up to it yes, otherwise just more problems. The cables could burn through overheating caused by too much power going through them.
  20. Well it looks like expats will get the jab here but it has not been stated how much it will cost. COVID knows no nationality: IATF to craft vaccination policy of foreigners in PH Published February 22, 2021, 6:27 PM by Genalyn Kabiling The government pandemic task force is expected to craft a policy on the vaccination of foreigners staying in the country against the new coronavirus disease. Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque According to Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, it is important to have a policy on the vaccination of all people in the country for protection against the infectious disease. He said the coronavirus could affect anybody, adding it knows no ethnicity or nationality. “Wala pa po tayong ganiyang polisiya pero inaasahan ko po na bubuo rin po ng ganiyang polisiya ang IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases) kasi nga po iyong anyo ng COVID ay wala namang kinikilala iyan na nasyonalidad o kasarian o kulay ‘no. Pare-pareho po basta tao ay hinahawa niya (We don’t have a policy on that yet but I expect the IATF will craft such policy because COVID knows no nationality, gender or color. Any person can be infected),” Roque said during a televised press briefing Monday, Feb. 22 when asked if the government will give free vaccines to foreigners in the country. “So importante rin po na magkaroon talaga ng polisiya na lahat ng tao sa Pilipinas ay mabigyan po ng bakuna (It is important to really have a policy in which all people in the Philippines must be given vaccines),” he said. Roque made the statement ahead of the highly anticipated arrival of the first batch of coronavirus vaccines in the country. The country’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the vaccines developed by China’s Sinovac for emergency use for healthy persons aged 18 to 59 in the country. The FDA approval paves the way for the delivery of 600,000 doses donated by China in the coming days. China earlier opted to wait for the local regulatory approval before sending the vaccines to the Philippines. With COVID-19 vaccine orders placed with various manufacturers, the government aims to vaccinate up to 70 million people this year to help attain herd immunity. The government’s priority beneficiaries include frontline health workers, senior citizens, poor and vulnerable citizens, and economic frontliners.

  21. Very good advice as trying to get money back here will send you insane with all the excuses which come up.
  22. You only need a small crack in the rendering or at a roof junction and with the amount of rain we have water will find a way in. Once this starts it will get sucked in as the dryness inside acts like a sponge and draws it in. Sometimes just re painting the walls can work but you need a good trades man to work it out where the penetration is coming from. If you see a damp spot somewhere it does not mean the leak is in that area as water follows the easiest route and could be coming in 10 feet away. Good luck Jim.
  23. Not many of them have that, they don`t even have the screwdriver type to check if something is live. People here will often sell their tools after each job and hope the new boss buys new.
