    You can buy a refillable k cup and buy whatever beans you like. Saves Money over time. i can’t be the only curry pot.
  2. Transferwise has different fees based on how you pay. Debit card vs direct debit vs credit card. That’s probably why you see the $2 difference. I don’t know if they’re the best, but I have used them several times and like them.
  3. If he paid by credit card he should contact the credit card company. I had a ticket booked on wow...which I booked 5 days before the declared bankruptcy!!!....my credit card company reimbursed the full amount bc I did not receive the service.
  4. Yep, Clark to Macau is now P1741 a good way to check is go to google flights. Put your date and departure location. No destination, and search. Shows you all the options available.
  5. I’ll jump on the bandwagon (the neuropathy). That’s going to get worse. And it’s a major cause of losing a foot or leg. If you don’t deal with it, you’ll very likely regret that choice. end of lecture.
  6. Agreed...compression socks. They really help. And wear them on the flight next time. The heat is probably making it worse. When it’s in the 30’s my fingers and feet swell for a week or so, until I acclimatize.
  7. How was the buying experience? Bought it in your name on a foreign licence? Plates? If you do end up selling it in Manila, post it on here. It does look like a nice bike, someone might be interested.
  8. What did you end up Buying?
  9. If you’re in Manila for a week you can do a few day trips. Tagaytay, Corregidor, intramuros is worth a look etc. Pretty easy to burn through a month.
  10. I think pag ibig is mandatory to whoever has a job there. With contributions coming from both employer and employee. I have a friend who just got her house using pag ibig, and their interest rate is better than regular bank rates. But in general, yes...I don’t understand how the banks can charge the interest rates they do.
  11. If you have luggage, don't do it. I took the mrt just to experience it as well...experienced it. Wouldn’t do it again unless I had too. I though the trains were crowded in Bangkok. Manila is way worse. Try grab instead. Or look into the new-ish bus service.
  12. I agree with onmyway. I stayed there for 2 weeks at the beginning of the year. I think it’s a great location. Took the ferry to Corregidor. That’s a worth while trip. There’s a guided tour included, and a buffet lunch. I would say sea residences is showing wear and tear way too quickly. In my unit there were cracks in the wall in the bedroom and bathroom. And not small ones, I’d say a fair bit of foundation settling. The pools are nice. But having said that, the water felt kind of “greasy”...and I had a nice red eye the next day. Antibiotic drops helped that. Next time I’ll wear goggles and hope for the best. easy to get to from the airport. Safe area. 10 minute walk to Moa. Couple of local restaurants part of the main floor. 2 convenience stores right there for water, snacks etc. If anyone’s interested, there’s an archery place just down the road. That was a good way to spend an hour. So, I’d stay there again. Although in November I’m going to check our shell instead. It looks nice too. And it’s 3.5 million + for the asking price now. oh...last thing. Try and get manila bay facing unit. Great sunsets. And I was there when they had the fireworks contest. Great view of that from the balcony. Especially with some take out food and a beer.
  13. Maybe slightly off topic...but I agree with jack. There's constantly articles about people having social media posts used against them. People losing their jobs. Insuarance companies cancelling policies. It seems wrong that it happens like that, but it does. So being a bit careful about what you post is a good idea.
  14. Pretty sure it's real. Fries were good too. pretty thick piece of beef. and cooked nicely. Fish was also done well. Not too "battery".
  15. Hi all. Couple of weeks ago I ate at bag of beans in tagaytay. They have a couple of locations. I give it a thumbs up. View over the lake was great. Good service. I enjoyed the food. All in all, I enjoyed the ambiance and food. And will definitely be going back. roast beef was P475. Fish and chips was P340. And the bus runs along the Aguinaldo highway from Manila, so easy ride.
