  1. Thanks everyone for your contributions, one thing that I have learned from your replies is that although I did 15 years in the Navy and have qualified for war service, I did not get a pension per say. Not that it matters a great deal as that annual payment got my attention. cheers
  2. I think I have asked this question before, if so here goes again sorry. Is the visa for ex military personnel good for all nations, or only for ex U.S. armed forces personnel?
  3. I was 19 years of age when I first visited Subic Bay, (Alongapo tourist facility) never in my wildest dreams was I ready for what I was about to experience, there was ships of the U.S. seventh fleet on rotation from what was happening in Vietnam, and of course Australian warships on rotation as well. We were having drinks in bars in the strip, then in the American clubs on the base. Then back out to sea for more exercises with the United States Navy, even with the big Mo, then into Hong Kong for Christmas, down in Wanchai, Kowloon where there was more tourist facilities. The destroyer I was on was in the area for six months before returning to Australia, where luckily my liver was still functioning, and back to a normality. Wow what a ride.
  4. Thanks to everyone for their input about BMexpress, appreciate it. The reason for my question was that I saw a van travelling around where I am south of Shitney and hadn’t heard of them before. I also have been using forex cargo for some years and haven’t had any problems up until now, where my latest dispatch has been sitting in the warehouse for the last 12 days, I suppose I missed the last ship leaving and will now have to wait for the next full container. Does not hurt to have a plan B. Cheers
  5. Thanks for your very informative reply to my what I thought was a fair question, rather than the BS and totally off topic replies that I have had. Seriously some members on this forum need to grow up.
  6. So I deduce from your reply, and yes it was very humorous, that you haven’t heard about this company that advertises as goods forwarding agent to the Philippines?
  7. Has anyone had any experience with BMexpress shipping, from Australia to the Philippines?
  8. And enjoy lots of real bacon for breakfast, steak and lamb roasts for dinner washed down with a good, or not so good, Shiraz, Merlot, or even a good Chardonnay with some real snapper,Barramundi or flathead. ‘Yes, I think I can weather the storm for a bit longer. Cheers
  9. That begging bowl must be near empty, and perish the thought of visas and all associated tourist cash cows increasing to fill it up again.
  10. Thanks, so everything is the same but different. I am particularly interested as I have to decide whether to take an extension on my lease in the rental unit I am in. So my thinking is that I am not going to get back in the Philippines until March/April next year. Geoff , I hope I am wrong but that is what my crystal ball is saying, Cheers everyone, please don’t hesitate to prove me wrong.
  11. Has anyone heard anything to date about the possibility of us coming back? Cheers
  12. The worker was not feeling well, so went and got tested but didn’t wait for the results before going back to work, which was where he was when he was pulled out of the station he was at. Yes all the families that were there are now in lockdown. What I fail to comprehend is why this person was only wearing a face mask with all the rules that are in place. The relative who owns the food manufacturing business was trying to get all of the employees vaccinated, the type of food being a staple in the diet there.
  13. Today the GF went to get the Phizer vaccination in the province, as she explained to me there was six stations to go through, what could go wrong one might think, duplication of the process, identity checks twice, blood pressure check, then the temperature check, then an interview with a doctor, then the doctor actually administering the shot, what could go wrong? The person at the second station, the second identity check got pulled out of the line up after getting confirmed that he was positive for COVID, even after feeling not well and still fronting up for work.
  14. Yes, the masses might be lapping up the latest BS from the NSW premier about international travel resuming by December for those vaccinated, personally I think it is just another carrot on a stick. I have given up watching any of the news channels, when all that is on is this COVID shite, I do wine tasting and listen to music instead..
