  1. The pic does remind me of being younger. That was Sunday dinner. Only one type of potato though. And I bet my mother made her Brussel sprouts more “tender” than those.
  2. Damn....I’m there for 2 weeks in feb. Good. I’m there for 3 weeks april-May. Bad.
  3. Where’s the beef???
  4. I think I realized that my first trip there. I like the challenge, I like the novelty. But I also know it will start getting annoying after a while. My plan is 3.5 months there followed by 2.5 months in canada. I figure that way I get to keep both my sanity and my health insurance. Win win.
  5. Ford employee? well if you’re in puerto princessa or Pasay, you might see me in 6 weeks.
  6. For sure...I made a countdown calendar that I put on my wall at work. It started 3 years ago....and this will be a busy year.
  7. Happy new year from Toronto. I start my one year countdown to retirement as of now. Woohoo.
  8. I’ve stayed at various condos near mall of asia over the last 3 years and have seen a big increase in the number of Chinese people staying there. From what I’ve read they aren’t tourists, but workers at online gaming companies aimed at chinese users. If you look at condo ads on olx etc for that area there are a lot specifically targeting those workers. And it’s been driving the rental prices up.
  9. As above, I’d try setting her phone up as a hotspot. There’s some not bad data loads available. And if you look on the globe Philippines website, I think you can buy her load on there. also, they sell the globe at home prepaid wifi set up there. It claims to be faster than pocket wifi and can be left plugged in. It’s on sale at P 1500. You could try buying that. Says free delivery.
  10. I don’t think steve means the shower. Rather the plastic wall covers. In place of tiling the wall.
  11. I can see it happening. I loaded a tank game on my iPad a few weeks ago. It’s free...then the up sell ads pop up. I was pretty shocked at the price. I figured they’d be $5 or $10. Nope, some are $139. The games can be pretty addicting. Fortunately my cheapness is stronger than my desire to get more a power in the game.
  12. What about a leave of absence from you job? Try it for 3 months or so and see if it’s what you really want. I think most of us who haven’t made the final move worry most about the money, and forget that we may not like it as much as we think.
  13. Ok, I’ll throw my story in. Except about chicken, not car parts. Went to the French baker at moa on Sunday. me: I’ll have the 2 piece chicken meal please. Waitress: I’ll check if it’s available sir......sorry, only 7 piece available. Me:..............uhhhh. Oh. Ok.......
