  1. I posted about Ghost Cities. The shell game is crumbling just like the ghost cities. Meanwhile dictator Xi and the ccp are reinstating old school Communism. Not going to end well.
  2. My wife was quarantined at Summit Galleria hotel Cebu recently and was impressed with the room, food and service. It was < $50 a day total including three meals and plenty of mineral water. The hotel is located above Robinsons Galleria Mall has a nice view. The staff was willing to go to the mall and shop for those held captive for a modest tip. Family or friends could drop off food water or whatever at the front desk too.
  3. You may be over thinking it. Many herbal remedy experts recommend lemon and honey hot tea for cold or flu. I prepare the water hot enough to drink and melt the honey at ~ 120F not boiling hot.
  4. Yes, we do. We drink it hot with honey and find it somewhat alleviates symptoms especially cough for awhile.
  5. We enjoy fresh Calamansi juice. Graham do you do anything special to care for it? Earthdome... Would you happen to know the variety your plant is?
  6. You mean the Rural Bank scheme someone we know was involved with?
  7. Rod, I may try cooking Chili Rellenos with fresh peppers next week. It will be my first time but with YouTUbe what can go wrong? The Old El Paso canned peppers are small but would work if you can find them over there. Or better yet as Tom suggested there must be some mild med-large fresh local peppers in the market.
  8. I was thinking of you Tom. Any Tomatillo salsa will do.
  9. Find those items at Robinsons super store Banilad Cebu or Rustan's The Marketplace Ayala mall Cebu City.
  10. Chili Verde Recipe All the ingredients should be available in Philippines. Two or three pounds pork butt cubed, salt pepper fry until brown only. Pork loin is a healthy substitute. A cup or more canned fire roasted Hatch Chili peppers mild. Or sub old El Paso canned green chili peppers. I've seen Old El Paso products in Cebu if you can get the Hatch its a step up! At least 24 oz can/jar of mild Salsa Verdi Chop one large onion with some fresh Jalapeños (seeded) to taste. Fry then add five or six mashed garlic cloves for the last 60 seconds. At least a pound of boiled waxy skinned potatoes cubed. More is better up to your taste we like potatoes. I put this in about 30 minutes before serving. 2 teaspoon oregano 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander Dried chili flakes or your favorite hot sauce to taste. Dump into slow cooker set at HIGH three hours of pork loin five or more for pork butt. Some salt and pepper to taste. Canned Jalapeño on the side and a cold one.
  11. Thanks HK, had no idea. I'm amazed the other players allowed that to take place.
  12. It could be a big deal but doubt the powers to be will allow it.
  13. Not being sarcastic but Graham do you think "they" even care? I don't. If that department can make a bunch of cash that's what they'll do and darn the consequences.
  14. It bothered or confused me at first but we live nearby to Seattle so..........
  15. And will once again end up with "white tails" or spin off into another airline.
  16. Gator wishing you guys the very best of luck and looking forward to hearing it all worked out for ya.
  17. My wife flew PAL to Cebu last month against my advice. She's to return Sep 20th..... I'll sure miss her.
  18. From PAL web site; On September 03, Philippine Airlines announced the voluntary decision to undergo financial restructuring under the U.S. Chapter 11 process. This step is part of a set of major agreements PAL has reached with substantially all of our stakeholders, and with one objective: to build a stronger Philippine Airlines so that we can serve our customers better and continue our mission as a full-service airline and flag carrier of the Philippines. Chapter 11 is a globally recognized U.S. legal process that many airlines have used to reinvent themselves into more successful companies. The restructuring will enable PAL to emerge with fresh capital, lower debt and a sturdier financial foundation for the future. We will continue to fly and to serve our customers throughout this process: it is business as usual for us. PAL continues to increase domestic and international flights as travel demand recovers with the easing of travel restrictions, and we will roll out new products and services that help make flying safer and more convenient. Our highest priority is the safety and health of our passengers, our employees, and the communities we serve. Nothing about that will change as we undergo restructuring. After 80 years of flying the Philippine flag, we recognize that our nation will look up to PAL to sustain the links and connections that unite our island country and bring life to our communities and economy. We pledge to work harder to earn your continuing support, to deliver buong pusong alaga(whole-hearted care) and provide a beacon of hope to Filipinos and travelers from all over the world. Thank you for your support for PAL’s recovery and renewal. https://palrecovery.com
  19. I've kept out of the covid vaccine right or wrong arguing here on the forum because it's not up to me to say. I enjoy your input and energy even when I disagree. You are being somewhat rude and sanctimonious now. I think you are better than that. You've had your say. Others have had theirs. Time to let it go and move on to other topics don't you think?
  20. Yes Governor Tom. The forum's AI automatic super computer editor changes "That" name into an innocent non offensive term so we can all peaceably go on with our busy lives.
