  1. There are gold chains specifically designed that individual links can be taken off or added. They come in many sizes.

    Geoff, I would think your suggestion is the safest. Known ingots or coins from recognized mints.

    Looking for a Philippine source for gold / silver purchases.  Search has yielded One Ounce Trading in Quezon, curious if any of you have dealt with them?  There are plenty of international bullion exchanges who offer shipping, I just prefer to deal with someone more local if possible.  There are even more local pawn shops and the like, who I don't know and don't trust yet.

    To avoid this question going off topic, let me just say:  Yes I know everyone's opinion will differ on the best investments, the nature of commodities, the economy, crypto, etc.  Those are not really part of this discussion.    


    You ask a question then tell others how not to answer? :popcorn:

    Wife has pointed out how sometimes, the item she puts back on the shelf after deciding not to buy....someone else will put into their cart.  Like they are taking advantage of her missed opportunity or something.  She says this frequently happens in the Ukay shops haha.  

    That's very curious.

  4. Hi John. Good to see ya here again.

     I looked at bringing some frozen beef to Philippines and viewed the RP customs guidelines that require approval from department of agriculture. It was more trouble than I wanted to deal with. A simple search at Philippines Customs will provide the information you need. Good luck

    This sounds wonderful, Old... But where do I find cultured buttermilk in Philippines?

    I don't know if it's available in your location. I've seen it in Cebu City because we buy milk for my boys and I made buttermilk biscuits recently. I think it was from Hong Kong oddly enough.

  6. Carefully clean and sterilize a glass jar and lid.

    Add three cups of quality heavy cream. Not the flavored type just cream. Then mix in five table spoons of cultured buttermilk.

    Cover with a paper towel or cloth and let sit for about 24 hours at 70 - 80 deg. Done!

    Quality ingredients will make a difference you can taste. The sour cream will taste different than store bought more subtle, it's buttery smooth and not too sour.

    Edit, I forgot you clearly said you and your wife like it thick. This is not like yogurt thick it's smoother.

  7. I agree with you Dave it’s simply not to my taste whatsoever. Awful recipe awful ingredients.

    It’s specifically for the Filipino market. I suppose an Italian may think the same about typical American or Canadian consumer pizza.

    Thankfully there are a few wonderful pizza restaurants in Philippines. One of the best pizzas I’ve ever eaten was on Bantayan Island in a German owned restobar.

    When I was at S&R yesterday I bought another 24 oz container of McCormick taco seasoning. My GF uses it to make taco salad, chili with the kidney beans that you can get at Savemore. Everybody in the family loves her chili. Ground pork with celery and onions, the beans and the taco seasoning. Yummy. We had some leftover cans of refried beans awhile back so she tried mixing the refried beans with ground pork, added some taco seasoning, rolled it up lumpia shanghai style and it was a hit. Savemore sometimes has the taco seasoning but its a hit and miss thing. Good luck.:thumbsup: 

    Dried pinto beans at S&R as well? :th_thbarbaque:

    I would have gladly traded my burrito for your steak dinner - if for no other reason than to have that real sour cream!!! I hope you breathed between bites to avoid possible choking hazard?:56da64a571a25_7_4_171:

    Tommy, not to go too far off topic. You can  make sour cream at home. It’s not difficult  to make and is delicious.

    Does it allow you to order extra butter for your muffin this crap is putting people out of jobs the same as self check out.


    What's putting people out of work in the US are Leftist politicians who force increases in wages beyond the free market. Company's will find ways to save money and/or pass that added cost on to consumers.
