  1. The trick would be to find a shore casting area that is not heavily polluted. We live near manila bay. Miles and Miles of sea wall, perfect for casting. In ten years I have never seen a fisherman.
  2. Us yanks would call that hour and 15 minutes of major pucker factor time
  3. Depends if any major stock holders work for the Department of Health, or the IATF....., if they are,,,,probably tomorrow
  4. They are the ones who can afford to have a test done.........anyone else who has a cough or a sniffle just stays home or toughs it out. How many vendors in your local wet market when as soon as they sneeze will run down to a test center, plop down 1500-2000 pesos, get tested, turn up positive, get hauled off to a camp and loose their income for 10 days.... The Philippines is in the "endemic" stage now, even if the powers that be dont want to admit it.........Your average Pinoy is just living with the virus.
  5. Got the phizer yesterday as a booster to original sinovac. Only side effect is a sore arm. Feels like when your buddy would come up and give you a punch
  6. Our commonwealth members might not have watched Laugh-in in the 60's and 70's......maybe us yanks can relate,,,,, I went to our neighborhood credit union yesterday and was asked for my vaccination card...I just started laughing at the guard, because I flashed back to this skit on Laugh-in for some reason....
  7. I am starting to get this sinking feeling that no matter where you are, how careful you are, what precautions you take, that is is only a matter of time before everyone is going to get this bug....or the next one.....or the next
  8. They do Geoff. Its one of those national traits that is easy to explain, but almost impossible for a non yank to really understand...sort of like pinoy pride....tea time,,haggies and warm beer
  9. martial law 1. military government, involving the suspension of ordinary law. The sad fact is that we have been living under martial law (by definition) since this whole mess started. At the beginning folks were just to scared of the unknown to put up any resistance. Private institutions can refuse service to whom they choose, government can restrict access to public spaces and services. But to prohibit movement and threaten arrest of citizens is a BLATANT violation of the Phil constitution: SECTION 6. The liberty of abode and of changing the same within the limits prescribed by law shall not be impaired except upon lawful order of the court. Neither shall the right to travel be impaired except in the interest of national security, public safety, or public health, as may be provided by law. NotiSECTION 6. The liberty of abode and of changing the same within the limits prescribed by law shall not be impaired except upon lawful order of the court. Neither shall the right to travel be impaired except in the interest of national security, public safety, or public health, as may be provided by law. Take note of the last 6 words. No law has been passed by congress. IMHO the main downside of the Phil politics is that there are no long term, mainstream political parties (republicans vs. democrats, Tories vs labor etc.) that are able to mount a forceful protest against these executive type actions.
  10. Welcome Dont know why you would want to leave Guam,,lovely place (except for the 30 mph speed limit boy that drove me nuts lol) But I understand living there and visiting there might be completely different than just visiting. I wont touch on the business part of your post, I am retired with secure income, so I will just address what I know about. The more money you have the safer you will be. Live in a higher end subdivision, have a driver to take you about, have live in maids. The area you mentioned is near Ayala Alabang, really high class area. From there you can go to 1st class malls and restaurants, 1st class hospital, all the bells and whistles. Even a good international school for your kids. The only time you would really have to mix with the great unwashed is if you went a a road trip somewhere. Long story short, unless a person is a complete rube and just rubs people the wrong way, is involved in some shady dealing and stays away from politics and family disputes, the Philippines is just as safe as any place else in the world,,,especially Chicago
  11. FFS! Dont go and leave us hanging! Did they find the towel? Did they make them pay for it, did a remake of a Bruce lee movie happen in the lobby! That policy has been around for as long as I remember, I want the BLOODY DETAILS
  12. I am with you on this one Graham. First time we went to our favorite resort (with my BIL) we rented BnB condos,,the condo my BIL got was fully furnished with nice stuff, the one we got, whelp I have been in better furnished barracks. Since then we just go to the resort hotel and just flat out love it. The main reason I would never buy a condo here. Never guaranteed that the management company wont change and stop doing proper maintenance.
  13. Wait a couple of years so she can eat it then get her a one of Dennys Hamburger....she will never want minute burger again
  14. The powers that be have hyped the vaccines so much to get people to take them that they neglect to "stress" that it is designed to keep a person out of the hospital or death. Now it is coming back to bite them in the and just giving the doubters more ammo. Wife and I were both fully jabbed, got da 19 and both fully recovered....just as advertised
