  1. Monitor the forum in about 6-8 months we will let you know But seriously JJ. It will be up to each individual LGU. Many of the larger cities are starting to compile "priority" lists right now. Here in Paranaque people are asked to register as to their willingness to get the jab. Once that is compiled AND any vaccine becomes available (ours is one of the cities that is negotiating with a manufacture) Then they will be notified as to when and where to get it. As things stand right now, none of the Jabs are available commercially, so we have no idea as to the cost. Hospitals and the li
  2. Glad to see you are going to start resuming life as best you can JJ. Hope we will be able to start doing so also. My personal first priority on selecting a destination however would be, not the ease of going there. But, if the worst should happen and we get the virus, what is the state of the health care system in that country.
  3. my question would be, how many residents of boracay surrounding areas can afford to stay at those resorts? Sad or not, all the money is in Manila
  4. I hope and pray your right JJ, I already sent a message to our fav resort to see if we are correct in our thinking. I will let you know. (after we get back) Yes, but remember where we are. The Phil already has the world longest lockdown. It was just announced today that MM will remain under Gcq for another month. My wife has a theory. That once Filipinos get power, they are reluctant to let it go so that they remain king log. Your a Filipino, what is your take on that? I know our mayor has had hid pik in the paper more in the last year than in the previous 7
  5. It is good news............IF destination resorts will also allow visitors to check-in without a test. If so we are out the door and on our way to our favorite local resort in a heartbeat. But the article only mentions "travelers" That will be awhile JJ, If I understand right, being vaccinated is not a guarantee that you might not be a carrier. Just that you will not get seriously ill (and be a burden on a countries health care system). So I expect port of entry quarantines to continue.
  6. Hmmmm, seems to me that they want the airlines to do BOI and the State Departments job. That is what visa issuance is all about...Screen out undesirables.
  7. As the saying goes, "It was worth a shot!" They tried to shake down the USA with the visiting force agreement, since that didnt work why not try and shake down the Brits
  8. The way I read it, all vaccines must be bought "through" government coordination at this time. LGU's and Businesses must get gov permission to talk to manufacturers. I wonder what the exact status would be of 13A holders. Technically we are "legal residents". Our city is buying some of the Astra jab and they are taking preregistration right now. I will try and register when they swing through here and report back
  9. Yep, we replenished our high exchange rate pesos in our credit union that we have been using the last few months,,,,,hope it continues
  10. As long as it does not override or infringe on one of the guaranteed rights..... Take driving a car, that is not listed in the constitution, so it is a "privilege" and can be regulated or denied.
  11. Thinking has little to do with it Terry. PLEASE keep in mind I am not disagreeing with you or saying you are wrong in your thinking, I am just trying to explain why in some instances the US seem a bit "idiotic" Here is just one example. Here in the Phil and in other countries large groups can not get together. In the US that is against the constituion. quote :Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to peti
  12. Terry, you are right to a point, but you must understand, that unlike a majority of the countries in the world, the USA can not impose the same protocols as say the Phil or NZ or OZ. It is just plain against the constitution. An unofficial motto of the USA is "Home of the free and land of the brave" in this instance it might be changed to "land of the stupid" but that is just reality
  13. News to me,,,probably chismis...........A friend of my wifes returned from the states and stayed at a 4 star at HER OWN expense. The way I read the papers the only ones who get free Q lodging are OFWs and they are not 5 star
