    You should be able to get across the city in three days. Seriously though, it is bad as others have mentioned. Take Dave's suggestion and use a taxi. Do not even consider trying to do the driving yourself.
  2. It seems like every week the students are out of school for at least one day. I tell the wife that this is the schools way of preparing them for the workforce.
  3. Also the danger of getting rear ended by a dog pack.

    Blessing our new Home?

    We built a house for the wife's parents several years ago and they wanted it blessed. There was no discussion of a "fee" but we gave 1000 peso. Cheap price to pay considering it brought peace of mind to the Papa and Mama.
  5. I lived in Washington state for 30+ years. I think just living in Seattle could make some people go off-balance. Washington demographics are almost like two separate states, very liberal on the west side, very conservative on the east side. I lived east of the mountains in Yakima.

    Legally, Are They My Kids Too?

    After reading Republic Act 386, I would yes you have legal responsibility during the marriage. Keep in mind that divorce is not legal in the Philippines. There is wording about care/support of "children" during a separation but it does not include a reference to step child so hard to say. In any case you may want to consider consulting an attorney prior to marriage to at least have a legal and more educated opinion. <snip> TITLE V RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE Article 109. The husband and wife are obliged to live together, observe mutual respect and fidelity, and render mutual help and support. (56a) Article 110. The husband shall fix the residence of the family. But the court may exempt the wife from living with the husband if he should live abroad unless in the service of the Republic. (58a) Article 111. The husband is responsible for the support of the wife and the rest of the family. These expenses shall be met first from the conjugal property, then from the husband's capital, and lastly from the wife's paraphernal property. In case there is a separation of property, by stipulation in the marriage settlements, the husband and wife shall contribute proportionately to the family expenses. (n) <end snip> If you separate: <snip> Article 105. During the pendency of legal separation proceedings the court shall make provision for the care of the minor children in accordance with the circumstances and may order the conjugal partnership property or the income therefrom to be set aside for their support; and in default thereof said minor children shall be cared for in conformity with the provisions of this Code; but the Court shall abstain from making any order in this respect in case the parents have by mutual agreement, made provision for the care of said minor children and these are, in the judgment of the court, well cared for. (7a, Act 2710) <end snip> Here is the link: http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/text.jsp?file_id=437210#LinkTarget_7138

    If you don't mind my asking. I am curious as to why you would want to get a second place in Cebu rather than leave the city for someplace less crowded.
  8. At the time the sticker was issued driver and cycle were cleared. So . . . can thieves steal the sticker or do they have to take entire bike the following day or week? Seems like bikes with a sticker would be a premium target for theft. Seriously, does this really solve any problems? Or am I not understanding how the system works????
  9. Why clutter up the bike with mirrors if you aren't going to use them.
  10. I think she purchased love potion number eight as number nine was "Out of Stock" - I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine Selling little bottles of love potion number nine I told her that I was a flop with chics I've been this way since 1956 She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign She said "What you need is love potion number nine" She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink" It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink I didn't know if it was day or night I started kissing everything in sight But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink I didn't know if it was day or night I started kissing everything in sight But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine Love potion number nine Love Potion number nine Love Potion number nine

    Wanted abroad Filipino's

    I find it interesting that one of the reasons listed is that Poland is having too many of its own labor force immigrating to other EU countries for employment.
  12. I have lived here for five years and in my opinion it does "fit that bill".
  13. As Dave has stated twice now, you need to see a lawyer. None of us here are legal experts, nor have you provided any detail on how you came to occupy this land. You will not find the answer to your problem on this forum, seek the advice of an attorney.
