  1. Update: I got my sticker yesterday in Gensan so no issues there.
  2. She is Thai and Poo is a fairly common nickname there. That book has been around for years....good catchy name though. I live in South Cotabato, SOX for short. There is a billboard in Marbel that advertises ' Discover the flavour of SOX ' regional cuisine or daily special..?
  3. I got a sticker last extension, around 6 weeks ago. Going again in a fortnight so see what happens then.
  4. I'm sure there will be lots of stock in Davao. There are plenty in Marbel where I am, same region 12 as Davao.
  5. I've only been here for getting on 4 years but I feel comfortable and have no desire whatsoever to return to the UK. To settle and enjoy it here you have to really want it. Many, I believe, find that the reality does not live up to the fantasy, which for those the fantasy was all it ever was. Each to their own though, no use staying somewhere if you're not happy.
  6. It's not really house music but a genre all of their own called Buduts. I agree with you regarding dj skills being non existent, they just play tunes in no particular sequence with no mixing whatsoever. As a fairly competent dj myself I find this excruciating...
  7. I renewed mine on a 2 month extension in October, collected yesterday, total fees came in at P5836
  8. I live just outside Koronadal, it was a fairly long quake here. Very noticeable but no damage.
  9. That's General Santos City where they will only issue 6 months if married. Most people go to Glan to avail this extension without any hassle.
  10. MSG is a flavour enhancer that I personally don't like to use. I much prefer using salt, not too much, spices and herbs for flavouring. I obviously use some products with MSG as an ingredient such as soy sauce which I use in certain dishes but these are few and far between. Magic Sarap or similar I will not have in the house and I don't usually eat at junk food establishments.
  11. We consume many vegetables at our house, including many purely vegetarian dishes like soups and curries etc. My partner has always eaten lots of veggie food, harder to get her son to eat them apart from a few favorites he has, he's 20. MSG, sarap or otherwise is totally banned from my house.
  12. That I am unable to confirm. Maybe someone on here who has purchased secondhand can answer that or failing that drop into your local LTO office and make enquiries.
  13. I think what Jack means is that their can be issues around change of registration. You need to have all the details about previous owners which are not always straight forward to get. I recently bought a scooter new, got my partner to buy in her name, she doesn't have a license, I do have Philippines license, we informed the dealer that I would be the rider. If you have a regular partner here I suggest you buy new as much less complicated.
  14. I cook mostly which can be Italian, Greek, Indian, Middle Eastern and British. All the family like my cooking though generally they will add rice unless there is pasta or something like cottage pie.
  15. These warranty rules apply on bikes too. I bought a Mio Aurox in July, first service at 1 month or 500km. After the first month, with 85km on the clock, I duly took it for it's service. I was told not to bother and bring it in when the appropriate mileage was reached. This I did this week and was informed that I had missed my first service so had to have the second one done instead.
