    A few of those schemes are going around here. Targeting poor and not so poor people who may not have access to the internet or they just have had no education or experience outside of their Purok. In the beggining some people get paid out so spread the word and that is how these schemes get away with it. Don`t forget a lot of expats got caught with something similar maybe 8 years ago in Cebu.

    You mean the Rural Bank scheme someone we know was involved with?

     I haven't made this since I left Calif. 7 years ago! Where did you find/name of store where you got the ingredients like green chili peppers and green salsa. Would even like to make some chili rellenos if I could find whole peppers even in a can! Then what about a can of refried beans for making some beef burritos , dying for some good Mexican around here. :cornflakes:

    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? :whatever:

    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.

    Find those items at Robinsons super store Banilad Cebu or Rustan's The Marketplace Ayala mall Cebu City.

  4. 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.

    I look at it this way.

    How much is an airfare, plus quarantine hotel...plus all other associated 'visa run' costs ? 

    Certainly a nice cash cow for the Phils government though... until they finally drive away too many of the foreigners who are, pretty much without exception, already contributing heavily to the Philippines economy.

    (I don't expect that fact to be appreciated though, in the land that logic forgot :rolleyes: ).

    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.

  8. 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.

    I am not saving the world by not getting vaccinated. It is evident that some believe they are saving the world by getting vaccinated.

    Sitting on the right side of compliance is a comfortable feeling, I admit. Temptation is high to point fingers to those who don't belong to the same camp. It's just human nature.

     

     

    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? :cheersty:

    Thanks for the reminder and info, Mike. However I don't think you quite answered my question...or maybe I need another cuppa Jo to finish waking up?

    Does this mean the forum automatic edit should now refer to "Former Pres....etc.?"

    Just curious.

    Don't worry, Clermont... I have already been recalled!:hystery:

    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. :wave:

    Not sure if this is common on not, but my wife's habit is to ask a question that ends with the answers.  "Do you want fish and rice for lunch, no?"   

    Mike, perhaps you could join her by ending your questions with NO? 

    If you choose to do so please get back to us how it worked out for ya. Remember we are all here to help.....

    Mike, I've noticed most questions ending with (no) as well. I've assumed it's how questions in Bisaya are asked? It was confusing at first.
