  1. Just looking at prices for next year for flights to the Philippines that’s if we are allowed to fly . AnywAy what a shock I got the prices have more then doubled to what I have paid over the years , the most I’ve paid is just over £600 each for indirect flights from the uk , either flying to Abu Dhabi or Hong Kong , but now they are wanting over £2700 . I have also looked at getting a flight to Hong Kong then another flight from there to Manila but again it’s getting on towards £ 2000 with a stop over , looks like I better look into holidays in the UK .
  2. If I was younger I would love the chance , but being older and more common sense I would give this one a miss, here is my comfortable high nowadays .
  3. What about these soft stuffed toy Tigers , put one of these in the garden , it may stop the monkeys 🙈, then again it may not , in other countries you see them doing this but after awhile the monkeys gang up and rip the toy apart, be fun watching though to see what they would do.
  4. Thanks everyone for replying, the wife and I was talking and looking at places over there but the problem is maybe what we are looking at has either been sold or has been on the market for years , the estate agents don’t seem to work like they do here, boots on the ground maybe next year to have a better sense of prices.
  5. House prices and lot prices go up every year but have you noticed if they have gone up more since the pandemic, is there any members who either live around Bohol and the Laguna area and how the house/lot prices are.
  6. It’s good that the person can walk away from spending so much money on a property and still live comfortably, not to sure about being fooled , maybe he just wanted to impress the neighbours and the family .
  7. All depends on what you are wanting for yourself , once the family gets involved the price will double and maybe treble too, look at some designs in the area and on the internet and go from there, just over 1 million should get yourself a nice house , good luck
  8. A good few years ago we stayed at Fairways at Bluewater on the island , it was beautiful.
  9. Well I had mine and Emma has had hers too, my next one will be late May and Emma’s will be June
  10. Yes definitely between sisters as it seems no one is speaking to Emma since early January because I refused to lend/ borrow/give or gift them the money they was asking for .
  11. When i met my future wife and had the holiday romance , a few pictures taken of us both plus lots taken of her by myself , I had one picture on my mobile phone as a screen saver which I thought was a very nice one , anyway Emma saw it and straight away went quite on me and I had no idea why as I said the picture is lovely . A few hours later I found out the reason why she was a little upset , while the photo was fine on my mobile phone my service provider was written right across her forehead VIRGIN, that’s what she did not like , it took me awhile showing her virgin trains , virgin planes and yes virgin Mobil network .
  12. Fred ,What’s the difference in price doing it this way compared to building with blocks plus would there be more noises coming through the hallow walls compared to the solid walls too.
  13. We are both great thanks Fred , enjoying time together without that dreaded word WORK.
  14. Is that your chair to sit on inspecting the work Fred
  15. Ok this is about the UK Got the letter to ask me to make a appointment for my jab for coronavirus today and I will be going this Saturday to a place and time of my choosing , it’s just a walk up the road from where I live , when I booked the service I could also book the date for the second jab too , jobs a good un
  16. Many may know my stories about lending, borrowing and gifting cash to the extended family, now it seems they are not speaking to Emma , not a word since January 4th after I said no to a loan of 100,000 peso , after asking what this loan was for I did not get the right reply, i was told it was a unexpected bill, then it was school fees . This is a family who has been showing off there new American kitchen that’s just been fitted there new extension on the house and there half way to building a water station too. As I said the money was not sent but I did send them all the best .
  17. Looks very nice John , so when do you reckon you may visit the place .
  18. So can I ask the folk that live over in the Philippines about there lock down. Firstly here in the England we can venture to the shops for your food and essentials ,plus hospitals and doctors and doing your daily exercise within the area you live, if you do work you are allowed to travel to and from work also, but there are the rule breakers who will do what ever they want too until they are caught then they will come up with some excuse. So back to yourselves , what can you do where you are living .
  19. It’s a good size lot you have there , is there going to be room for a pool one day too.
