    Is Tipping 20% Too Much in the Philippines?

    I'm guessing it means @Dave Hounddriver gets one hour prostate massages?

    Is Tipping 20% Too Much in the Philippines?

    No worries, my comment was more inspired by your comment as opposed to commenting about you in particular. When prices go up it is not just the expats that see/feel it, the locals are typically affected by the rising costs much more than the expats. There are cities all over the world where tourists "helping" the locals by overtipping (per local custom because it is 'so cheap' to the tourist and they want to 'help out'), that prices have risen so high the locals can no longer afford to buy/rent/eat in their town anymore. The entire economy switched to relying 100% on tourists and owned/ran buy foreign companies.

    Anyone on Globe Anti-Bill Shock plan?

    Not dumb and you pretty much got it. DSL or cable have a box connected to a line ran from the street. I have a router/modem that has a sim slot like a phone does, it connects to the cell tower via a wire that runs from the box to an outside antenna.

    Anyone on Globe Anti-Bill Shock plan?

    Yup me too but I am LTE (wireless) not DSL so the limits are lower. Volume boost for LTE is 20 GB for p99 60 GB for p299 100 GB for p499 150 GB for p599 200 GB for p799 300 GB for p999

    Anyone on Globe Anti-Bill Shock plan?

    Wired but not wireless (LTE with the antenna). I did a speed test on a supersurf plan today and had 35mbs download speed is why I am asking the question. Probably end up between 5mbs and 45mbs down and if anti-billshock is still valid max bill is p1,500 no matter how much over my plan limit I go. (charged p2 extra per MB over the plan but overall bill cap of p1,500)

    Remember this post when living here while tourists come in, tip big, and the business owners start raising prices, then start automatically adding gratuities. Thanks for the extra inflation guys....
  12. Haven't heard about this for a while and since I am out of contract with my Globe LTE 10mbps 50GB/mo plan I am faced with either getting the new Globe LTE 10mbps 150GB/mo plan or switching to a postpaid p499 (or whatever) plan with whatever is available download speed and paying for any extra data - capped at the anti-bill shock max. What is the max you pay on anti-bill shock nowadays, what is the base plan you use?
  13. Yes it bothers me, I think about the law constantly when they are here. I just can't tell them they can't study here because of it. I am happy to know what she is doing and who she is hanging around with. There are some crazy situations we get into here, that's for sure.

    This is the FB group I bought my batteries. https://www.facebook.com/groups/862273810529087/ They are NorthStar 170ah batteries, built in Missouri and supposed to be back in stock in December. I have been a bit leery of Chinese batteries just because I can't figure out which are built to 'western standards' and which are cheap copies.
  15. There already is/was laws in place that make taking advantage of someone, whether 16 or 46 or 96. If they are gonna break that they are gonna break this law. Only ones affected are people like me, I'm supposed to tell my 17 year old sister her schoolmates can't come here to study or practice? Pretty damn dumb. Jack, did your daughter ever have a schoolmate come home with her?
