  1. Those are some pretty nice discounts.
  2. For what it’s worth, the first transfer I made after creating and setting up the account, took the longest.
  3. I use Transferwise and the money is generally from my US bank to the bank here in 24 hours. I've had a one transfer that took 2 days though.

    New Foreign Ownership Law!!!

    Makes perfect sense then… This opens the door for the third, foreign owned telecom company to come in. ;) Yeah, I didn’t figure he was cutting the rest of us in the slack… LOL

    New Foreign Ownership Law!!!

    Seems to me that “internet business” is pretty vague in it’s wording. Doesn’t say ISP which in theory is a telecommunications provider. Do they mean that we can now have blog sites that make money, Internet cafe, coding web sites etc. I think the wording and intent needs to be clarified.
  6. Sorry, looks like I posted this in the wrong forum. Mods, if you would be so kind.... ;0
  7. TWO American nationals and their Filipina cohort were arrested at 8:30 p.m. Monday, October 29, after they were found living illegally with two minors in Barangay Sta. Lucia, Asturias, Cebu. Police identified the suspects as John Herman Carder Jr., 76, Jim Dean Syfert, 52, and Frailline Mae Sagabala, 19. The minors (twins), who are 14 years old, were rescued and brought to the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO). The girls told the police that the suspects offered them last October 26 two cellphones, P500 for purchase of clothes, full scholarship grants, and installation of electricity in their house if they agree to work for them as house helpers. Before the arrest happened, a concerned citizen informed the police about two minors living with the foreigners. A rescue was conducted by the Asturias Police Station, MSWDO and Sta. Lucia barangay officials. The group, accompanied by the owner of the house the suspects are renting, went inside the house and saw one of the suspects wearing only an underwear while facing the minors. During the rescue, the minors were seen drinking hard liquor with the suspects. A foreigner caught in the company of a minor who is not his relative violates Republic Act (RA) 7610, or the Special Protection of Children against Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination Act. Section 10 (b) of RA 7610 prohibits any person to be in the company of “a minor, 12 years or under or who is 10 years or more his junior in any public or private place, hotel, motel, beer joint, discotheque, cabaret, pension house, sauna or massage parlor, beach and/or other tourist resort or similar places.” (KAL) https://www.sunstar.com.ph/article/1771698/Cebu/Local-News/2-foreigners-Filipina-arrested-for-illegally-living-with-minors

    Luzon - Super Typhoon Yutu

    Yikes, definitely dropped south and certainly looks to be track to plow right throw the heart of Luzon. Let’s hope not but, that storm track doesn’t look good.
  9. Police have filed a murder charge against “a known gun-for-hire” following the shooting of Australian Reginald Hodgens in Ilocos Sur. Mr Hodgens was shot dead outside his rented home in the town of Sinait on the evening of October 15. PLN has been contacted by the 70-year-old victim’s brother, Ronald, who forwarded information from official sources about the ongoing investigation into the killing. The statement says that local police “filed a case of murder” against a suspect on October 19. The man, described as “a known gun-for-hire” was identified by a 10-year-old boy who had been playing near the victim’s house at the time of the killing. The boy told police that he had approached the man, who then scared him away by revealing his gun. The child ran home and told his father what had happened, but was not believed. At that point a shot rang out, confirming the boy’s story. The boy was later able to identify the alleged killer from among a “rogue’s gallery” series of photographs. The statement also said it was likely the gun-for-hire was acting on instructions from a third party, as he had no known connection with Mr Hodgens. We have also been contacted by a friend of Mr Hodgens, who shed some light on a possible motive for a contract killing. Previously, police investigators had said that the victim moved to Sinait after “filing a case against a Filipino”. The friend said that he had visited Mr Hodgens a few months ago in Sabang. He said that he [Mr Hodgens] was then in the process of moving out of his rented house due to “problems with his landlord”. He also said that he had a black eye that was sustained “when the landlord tried to kick him out”. However, he added: “Not sure whether this has any relation to the case at all, or to the case he had filed against someone.” Investigations into the murder continue and the suspect has until Monday, October 29, to file a counter affidavit.

    False Advertising on Lazada

    Makes sense. I guess I’m just spoiled as I am a prime member and used to free shipping. ;)

    False Advertising on Lazada

    My biggest issue with Lazada is the fact that everything seems to come one item at a time and you’re charged shipping on each individual item. I’ve ordered about 20 things from them on 4 different orders and everyone came by itself.
  12. No but, she’ll cook my two eggs and then she will cook her two. Hello, you can fit 4 eggs in the frying pan. Toast takes about as long as it does to cook the eggs. Put them in at the same time.... nope. 😂😂😂
  13. I’ve noticed that there seems to be a trend where the food doesn’t all come out at the same time. I’ve already had a few issues with Landers where they try to give me my fries while I wait for my burger or hotdogs to be ready. My GF doesn’t seem to grasp everything being done together either. She’ll make eggs and after their done and on the table, she asks if I want toast. Or she’ll make the toast first and let it sit and then make bacon and eggs. Hahahaha....
  14. Yes. Not much else you can do really.
