  1. I photo copy all the important stuff including passport, acr, and drivers license etc. I carry the photocopies and keep the originals in a safe place.
  2. Why do u want to leave your home country? You will never be as comfortable in the PI as you are at home. Weather, pollution, traffic, food, crowds, cable and internet connections etc.,level and quality of service....it can really wear you down over time. I lasted 13 months, now I visit twice a year for a few months...Try a 6 month visit in a few different places.
  3. If u want to go to the range and shoot bring the wife along. Not complicated.
  4. The work around is to have a firearm registered in your wife/gf’s name.

    Paying for Meal

    Back when I was a newbie in Cebu my gf and I were invited to a local home for dinner. I accepted and then was told : great ! bring a pizza and some chicken. We like to eat around 8 pm. True story.

    Here is the correct way to grip a pistol. 60% grip pressure with the left hand, 40% with the right.
  8. I use 800mg ibuprofen + 500mg tylenol + ice affected area. I take it with a glass of milk and a few soda crackers. Recommented to me by a doctor in Canada. It works. i have prescription novomorphone for severe pain.
  9. It is not a province thing, it is wide spread. Reasons vary..... I grew up in a bilingual family, when we had visitors we were forbidden to speak in a language that was not understood by all. To do otherwise was considered very rude and unhospitable.
  10. I have some arthritis in my knees, hips, and shoulders.. Also took a face plant on a slippery driveway a few months ago and hurt both rotator cuffs. Still painful after two months.Tried some medical marijuana, legal in Canada. It helped with the pain but felt a bit stoned hehehe. Anyone know if medical marijuana is legal in the PI ?
  11. When you step in poo you hope it is from a dog....
  12. I have an ear to the ground in other places......he did get scammed big time....no idea what he is doing now.
  13. About the visa......the 30 day entry is not a visa, it is just an entry stamp. They usually don’t ask where you are staying and I have never needed proof of reservation the odd time that I was asked. After 30 days u need to get a visa or a 30-59 day extension.
  14. There are some gun clubs around. As a foreigner you will not be permitted to own guns, never mind hunt.......You can rent guns for use at the clubs. I rented pistols at clubs in Baguio and Cebu for practice and to compete in IPSC matches. There are work arounds like having a gun registered in your wife’s name but you better not get caught doing anything illegal.
