  1. People will steal anything from a car parked in the street. My first car - was a HG Holden sedan. Took me 6 months to save up and rebuild engine, gearbox etc while I waited to be old enough to get my license. It stayed down the side of our house. 2 weeks after I had it finished and got my drivers license - I got in to drive to work - now parked out on the street in front of the house.. Started it up fine - let out the clutch .....and no motion whatsoever - forward or reverse gears. I am thinking a clutch failure - and go looking under the bonnet (hood ). All good. Looked under the car - no prop/drive/tail shaft ! Some cheap Bastid had been under it during the night and stolen the damn thing. The car had insurance - parts didn't - too low for the deductible. So off to the wrecking yard - pity that thief didn't use them.

    Globe's Mobile WiFi Ripoff

    I have found the AirBNB "included" wifi's here are generally as bad as the "free" wifi's in most hotels here (and back in Aussie). I picked up one of those Globe At Home Prepaid Wifi Routers for trips here - if the included Wifi is less than stellar. It's good insurance when you rely on access for work - even when on a break Was surprised on my trip back to AU last month - the hotel wifi at 3 places was simply rubbish. Of course, all 3 were free, so no real interest is given to resolve it - so a decent Phone SIM Data plan saved the day again.

    Well for a change my guys are doing well :) Well enough for me to continue my membership as an "international member" - basically giving me access to all the Fox Footy streams I happened to go back for the GWS game - we lost in a cr*ppy effort all round. Glad I went back for family stuff too

    Abaca Bakery IT Park Cebu

    Yeah, have heard Rustans might have before (not sheets but a block to roll out ?). I look in freezers in S&R, Landers and Rustans each visit - time for another expedition now I have the appliance :)

    Greeting Folks, Another newbie to the forum finally making an intro Have semi-retired here in Cebu from Australia about 9 months ago (semi because I can't do nothing at my age and will get around to doing something in the long run - if only to fund my Lazada addiction). Am a football (AFL) and Pie tragic (I went back to OZ 2 weeks ago to watch my team play and pick up a pie-maker) - but they are about the only things I get serious about these days as I slow my lifestyle down rapidly and enjoy life here. Ciao for now, and cheers

    Abaca Bakery IT Park Cebu

    Sorry to drag up an old topic folks, but in my never-ending quest to find a decent pie and sausage roll in Cebu - I just had lunch at Abaca Cybergate today. I grabbed a traditional pie, sausage roll, chicken pie and spinach and feta roll - all takeout to sample over the next few days... They informed me that they will also be opening another Abaca in Robinsons Galleria next week and also they have the same owners as Red Lizard and Phat Pho. I picked up a pie-maker last week in Sydney so hopefully these Abaca treats will make the grade - otherwise I need to search for puff pastry in Cebu again - or make a mess of my kitchen to try to make my own
