  1. There is still a good possibility that the Philippines may still suffer a hostile takeover by China.
  2. Here in Bacolod, it is required. As for age, I was 49, Myrlita was 53 back in 2007. When we got there, the instructor took our paperwork and just signed off on them saying you both obviously don't need my instruction. She invited us both to speak and offer advice to the other young couples. We were honored.
  3. This place has it's ups and downs but all in all, I will die here. Sept will be 9 years here.
  4. My understanding is the gases are slightly different. One is more Propane and the other is more Butane. I forgot which is which.
  5. The way I see it is why risk losing my SSDI? If I were to jump through the almost impossible hoops to be a PH Citizen, what's to stop the US Govt from saying since you are now a PH Citizen, we no longer have an obligation to support you any longer. Have your new country support you now. Also the very few benefits outweigh the losses. Even if you become a PI Citizen, the locals will still always see you as a foreigner and an outsider.
  6. I also experience it here with Ilonggo. I asked Myrlita and a mutual friend why do they do that when they can speak good English and then translate to me? I was told it is a rule of their culture that Filipinos of the same prov must communicate in their mother tongues. I took it as Filipino pride. Do I like it? No. But, it's their country.
  7. I'm surprised no one beat the sh*t out of him.
  8. Glad you're ok Ron. Remember, you can't fix stupid.
  9. The girls that even bother to talk to me tell me that I'm a sweet old man and remind them of their dads.
  10. Been clean and sober for 34.5 years now. Myrlita doesn't drink either. Works for us.
  11. A re-entry permit is similar to the US advanced parole. It is assumed that if you as a valid 13A holder leave the PI, you are assumed to give up your perm status here unless you get the re-entry permit. You get it at the same time as the ECC at the airport. Using NAIA Terminal 1 for my example, just before you get to the immigration counters, turn right and you will see 2 windows. Go there, present your passport, ACR-I card and approx P2820. This gives you your ECC & Re Entry Permit. They are coded to your ACR-I card. Then you can bypass the immigration counter and go directly to the departure area. Upon return, the immigration officer at the counter will scan your ACR-I card to verify the above. All set. Go to customs then Welcome Home. Easy enough?
  12. Essentially, they do want any importing here. This is an extremely nationalistic country.
  13. The OP question is do you need an onward ticket with a 13A visa? The answer is definitely no. As long as you have your passport showing your 13A perm stamp and current 13A ACR-I card, you're good to go. I know because I've used it twice in 2010 & 2011. Just make sure you got your ECC & Re-entry permit credited to your card at the 13A window before you leave the PI.
