  1. When the A-6 took off from the flight deck you had to open your mouth so your teeth would not chatter. After 20 years of that the look on my wife's face when my doctor told her I really cant hear her sometimes and I might not be ignoring her was priceless.
  2. a few years ago I started calling it ear wax... My wife would protest and tell me "Bitter melon" not ear wax and how do you know what ear wax tastes like?
  3. It funny, one of the local workers that does most of the work on our house is the 180 out from most of the local workers.. He over builds everything.
  4. https://lawyerphilippines.org/2019/02/08/compulsory-heirs-under-philippine-law/ This is the best listing of "what if's" when it comes to wills and who gets what. Sometimes its better not to have a will in the philippines.
  5. Hi,my wife and i live in Sibonga, 20 miles north of Dalaguete. From what I have seen the 5 Degrees cooler only comes into play if you head up into the mountain's. Nice view but can be a pain during rainy season.
  6. No rain so far here in Sibonga but the windchimes are getting a workout.
  7. Tnx for the info. We are in Makati right now and will use them if we have to. We were told by the PNP at the airport office to get our ticket to cebu and they will give us police clearance to fly. But that was yesterday.......so we will see.
  8. File this under more COVID fun. We bought tickets from Los Angeles to Cebu via Manila. I asked 4 times what do we do in Manila? Each time i was told. Get a room take the COVID test and fly to cebu when you get the results. Well it sounds easy right? Well we take the test, check into the hotel and wait. 12 hours later we get the results and i call my airline to rebook the flight to cebu. The young lady was very nice on the phone but said there would be a 950 usd rebooking fee. Wth. I had to take a trip out to the airport to fix that problem. Ok thats fixed. Then the nice young man who fixed the ticket issue informed me that we need permission to fly to cebu. I asked "why, you made us stop in manila to get the COVID test"? Our house is 10 minutes from the airport in cebu. Sorry sir but to travel from Manila to Cebu you have to get permission. Well we are working on that now. Will let you all know how it works out. Just a warning if you are trying to get to Cebu do not fly through Manila.
  9. Location,location,location......I will always take a shack in a good neighborhood over the"palace" someone built in the wrong place. Sadly you see them all over the province.
  10. we had this built to have a place to sit and drink outside. it was close to 800us.
  11. Well time for a update. We arrived back in the states and went through all of our mail. Well low and behold it looks like my wife's sister filled bankruptcy and wiped out the last 8000$ she owed us. Got to love relatives. I went on line, got a copy of the paperwork and it seems they forgot to mention to the trustee that the have a house and a business in cebu. The kick in the ass is no matter how much they shit on us I cant make the call to turn them in......
  12. This must be somewhere in Oregon I grew up north east of Seattle. 33 degrees and raining and you would never wear a scarf...lol
  13. The problem is the the one year balikbayan "Visa" is not a visa. It was just a good deal you can only get at the airport when you arrive with your spouse. hopefully this will go back to the old system one day.
  14. https://www.gmanetwork.com/news/news/nation/750475/foreign-spouses-minor-children-of-filipinos-need-entry-visa-to-philippines-bi/story/?utm_source=GMANews&utm_medium=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR316fHjyq8aGG-Li7MLdL_8aoS-IEgA4QtAb-T9jxBIkYiQmcqhIcSypaQ looks like i need to get my long term visa now.
