    Just bought some more steaks at BelChris: JGF: The one by IT Park Cebu is on Gov M Cuenco in Banilad where the road divides one elevated and the other just goes straight. Bout five kilos frozen USDA steaks at P500 per Kilo or under $5 US per pound. Not a bad price for a steak, USDA, taste great!

    I found USDA steak at Bel Chris in Cebu. Has about 5 stores from Minglanila to outside IT Park in Cebu. The steaks sometimes comes individual wrapped frozen, but the best deal is to by, rib roast or sirloin roast by the lbs/Kg around 10-15 lbs some even larger. just cut the size you need from the large piece and freeze the rest. I like thick steak 1-1 1/2" and grilled on the BBQ with baked potatoe with thich sour cream found at S&R....ultmate yummmmmmmmmmm!

    In response to the K-cups. Was able to get some at S&R a while back but just a couple types. I haven't seen them for the past 6 months. Now Lazada and Shoppe carry them and quite a few new/different ones, like Bananna Foster k-cups. But those are a bit pricey for my tastes. Averages about $2 a cup or more. About as much as going to Starbucks
  9. Have you tried signing up for "myssa" under SocSecurity website. If you have problems opening your account online it could be that you need to use a VPN to spoof that you are in the States instead of the PI. Websites are getting real picky about network security of foreign logins. When I go to myssa, I use a VPN with the server in California. Anyway, read up on myssa. It will list everything about work amounts. what your benefits would be, etc,... I used myssa online to start getting my benefits a couple years ago while he in Phils. Also check with embassy to signup foe smart travelor. You will get notifications in email also when the SSA from Manila will be in your area. If your in Cebu, the SSA will be at the Cebu Embassy next month on 9/11-12. PM for details if needed!
  10. When our Balikbayan visa came due( 1 year in PI) just grabbed a flight to Hong Kong in the morning, had lunch and returned sameday to get another Balikbayan visa good for 1 year!
  11. Bigger than I've got. You will need a van to get everyone around.
  12. In the city are several very old churches, Santo Nino etc. Magellans Cross downtown, more old churches @ 15-1600's? Mactan island. Moal Boal-coast, Kawasan falls...many places!
  13. I got one here in Cebu. Car 2016 Suzuki (Ciara, our car and driver my SO,s brother-in-law. he drives us all over Cebu). PM me if interested.
  14. Just reported in Yahoo and local news: https://www.sunstar.com.ph/article/1811787 Looking to move Manila Gov up north by 100KM to New Clark City. This is because of commute times, distances of over 20 km to other gov offices just takes too much time to travel. Manila has the highest density population than even India by 10000. The infrastructure is being put into place for widen highways, trains/buses terminals. Looks like reale estate in New Clark City and surrounding areas should climb fast! Be interesting to see what may happen in Manila in the future!
