  1. That is soooo true. Couple of years a go I saw these Aussies at Ayala mall who had a little too much to drink. They were on their way out of the mall, and "they" bumped into a couple of local guys....and then they started carrying on like it was the local guys fault, it started to get heated....which attracted one of the security guards, on his approach they all just went their own ways....but it had me thinking....seriously guys...do you know where you are?? This is not Northbridge, Western Australia or someplace like that.

    Property lawyer

    Always pays to have a good property lawyer...I learned this from condo sale 1 the hard way. Now I am onto Condo #3...very cheap 2br....which I thought was a bit sus....I had my lawyer run a CCT check, and turns out the present "owner" never put it in his name to try and get out of paying capital gains tax....hmmmm I really like the condo for its price, but if I have to pay the capital gains to get it in my name, because the owner won't do it....I might have to re-think this purchase.. Good to have a lawyer :)

    Nipa Huts

    Any members know any expert Nipa Hut builders in the Cebu region. The mrs and I have some beach front property near Bogo that we would like to build a Nipa Hut for weekend getaways. Cheers
  4. haha....I think he will survive....the new one I am getting, the owner was only renting it out on a month to month basis, because he was selling it, and knew new owner would want to move in :)
  5. I guess I will have to look into that. My current living condo in Tipolo, I plan on moving out of that one and rent out, so that would be 2 renting out in Tipolo, and the new one I am getting, it is a bit bigger than the other 2, so will be kicking tenant out of that one, and moving in there :)
  6. Jack I thought I would bring this old thread back to life. This month I am adding number 3 condo to my collection in Cebu. Which brings me to the thought again, should I be looking into fire insurances or some kind of home insurance now that my portfolio is increasing to preserve my investment in case something happens....or "does anyone bother" :)

    Verorab unregistered rabies vaccine.

    We don't have rabies on Oz, however I was in Iraq for 2 tours last year with United nations, and the current does we give them there is one dose stat, and the second one a week later.

    If you fancy a trip a little south :)...I can recommend Metro Dental in SM Mall (Cebu). They are really good, and prices very reasonable. I have been seeing them for years.

    Electric Fan Rant

    I am not sure why everything there is so much cheaper, except I only see locals at that mall, I can't say I have ever seen an expat there. My GF was the one that turned me on to this mall.

    Electric Fan Rant

    I have wondered the same thing about this trend. If you go into SM Store, the prices now for a good fan are crazy. Mine you in Cebu, you can still get some pretty good discounts for stuff like this at E-Mall.

    good mail forwarding service from US??

    Hey I had a look at that site. Thanks Tom, that is a great service, and I think the price is reasonable. I will definitely be signing up! That is more beers I owe you :)

    good mail forwarding service from US??

    Yep, there are only basic ones available. Notifications like medicare and licensing, I am still trying to figure out if they can notify me online, but some of the other stuff I got going, the organizations are not sophisticated enough to have anything like that yet. I think what I will do, is keep my Oz PO Box for a while, as it is pretty cheap....give the key to a friend, and then just have him send me all the mail every month or two, until I can get everyone sorted out.
