  1. Oh Geesh, I guess people will say anything in hopes of getting some traffic.
  2. If I were going to plant evidence, I doubt it would be an empty DVD Cover. If I were going to do that, I think I'd make dang sure the evidence was really good.
  3. In Cebu, I think it is standard operating procedure for any motion for reconsideration that you must talk with the chief. At last that is what I found when I wanted to expend past the 16 months. That was about a year ago. I've never overstayed but wouldn't that form be required for anyone that does? I am pretty sure it is along with the express fee for that document. I'm going from memory though. I said in Cebu because there are different procedures in each office it seems to me.
  4. Thanks for the try Lee. Thanks for find Jake! When we gonna have that magic drink of yours? Mojo something....
  5. Lee, can you find with much effort that post you made about the guy that was arrested (I think in Subic) for carrying a gun but then had them returned later? I've searched and can't find it. Hmm, I searched for guns but not firearm(s). I'll try that. If I find it I'll post a reply to this. Have been looking for a while, can't find it. :th_thholysheep:
  6. Boy would I hate to be a shrink in the Philippines. Business can't be booming. I don't know things might be different in Makati but out in the province, wow, the stigma for seeking such would be devastating for a Filipino in their culture. I've never seen one in Cebu City though I'm sure they are there. Probably more psychiatrist than psychologist. Psychiatrist in the US pretty much suck for counseling, they are all about medication. Psychologist and social workers handle the counseling. I hope you're doing okay Marc! Good luck!
  7. Interesting, I'll have to try them Lee. Their website is interesting pizza must be free, it says "no cash, no credit card"? :th_thholysheep: I like Da Vinci pizza. They have a few locations and they deliver. Large pizza too for under P300. Better than most I find and the price is better than most too. :yes: I like Filipino style pricing. I don't think it is as good as Pizza Hut pizza but is also not floating in grease. ;)
  8. A couple of years ago, the chief of PDEA (Philippines Drug Enforcement Agency) stated without any reservations in a paper that they sometimes plant evidence on people they know are dealing drugs but they can't catch them. Of course, I was appalled. Jessie was fine with that, "well if they can't catch them" or something like that was her reply. I talked with some other Filipina and they all had the same opinion. I don't think every arrest is a setup and most of the time the people do not buy their way out of it. There are foreigners with money in jail here. Though one can't forget the rich
  9. PS it isn't always about money either. My first encounter was with a pretty Filipina that went after me because I was famous or infamous perhaps on a video chat service. I ran a big video chat server in the network. She is well off, didn't need money she just wanted to know someone she thought was a "bigshot" which was silly to me even then. That was the persona I had though. After six months of her stuff, I found out she was married with a kid. :o No money, just a waste of time.What gets guys into trouble with Filipina is they think this island dream girl is their only shot at a girl l
  10. It is very common. Date in Asia, Badoo, PinaLove, FilipinoCupid are full of it.Many people form their opinion of the Philippines and Filipina after visiting those sites. They are not getting a sample of what the Philippines is like. Plus there are girls that will scam on those sites that won't do it in person.Most of them have many men telling them they are coming, they take the first one that shows up if any do and most never do.The number one reason for money if the guy is overseas is for a medical emergency. Going to college is another highly used reason. "I just have one semester left
  11. When a country is experiencing inflation, other factors being equal, the currency value of that country will fall. The currency is worth less when goods cost more.Prices are not going up because the peso value is low, the peso value is low because prices are rising.Right now, and it very well may not last, the peso is loosing ground for two reasons. The Greece debt crises (which I do think will be temporary) and inflation. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas has had to increase interest rates in its last three meetings because of inflation fears. Inflation fears usually mean the currency will fall
  12. BI got a link into Interpol computers about two years ago, they've been stopping more people at the border ever since.I wonder how common it is though, maybe more common than I thought.I know, Filipino often probe you as to why you are here. I think in part it is their usual close family ties here that make it very hard for them to understand how we can just move to the other side of the world. Not a problem for me, though I wish it was. I'd still be here though I think.Often times, I get the strong feeling they are probing to see if I'm running from the law. I don't really appreciate those
  13. Oh and on entertainment, go to a movie in the USA lately? I spent about $50 last time I went with two people.In the Philippines? about $5 but the popcorn is horrible. lol
  14. The cost of food in the Philippines is no where near as high as that in the USA. A loaf of bread is still under a dollar. Last time I checked, way below. The list is endless. Pizza Hut and McDonald's are closer to the same cost as the US but they are a little cheaper too. But the fries at McDonald's in the Philippines are still good. Probably worse for you but they are good. lolI can go out to eat and eat till I'm about to burst for less than $5.00. I once took 10 people out to eat and the cost was about $15. I defy you to do that in the West.You can get a nice place to live in Cebu Ci
  15. Your source of income doesn't determine the cost of living in the Philippines. Now, if you have bundles of money, you can spend out the nose to get super nice things, I'll agree with that.Some things do cost more, anything you import will cost more. Electronics usually are the biggest thing. I often buy mine from the states and ship them over because I find the choices limited here. I'm talking about smaller things. Though I did buy a computer a year and half ago, well computer parts. I could get one cheaper here but they were junk, I needed something with more power. I paid around $200
