  2. Cebu is now doing 14 day mandatory quarantines for all inbound passengers to Mactan Intl. CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Cebu provincial government’s 14-day mandatory quarantine now excuses no one. Starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020, all passengers arriving at the Mactan Cebu International Airport via any international flight shall be required to undergo quarantine as a measure against the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Governor Gwendolyn Garcia announced this development through an executive order that she issued late Sunday evening, March 15. “There continues to be a clear and present danger presented by the COVID-19 that warrants an immediate need for the implementation of stricter measures to prevent its entry into Cebu while establishing protocols for the quarantine of all persons coming from any foreign country,” Garcia said in her Executive Order no. 5-J. Based on Garcia’s EO, Filipinos arriving from foreign countries shall be placed under home quarantine while foreigners shall undergo mandatory quarantine at designated quarantine facilities “at their own expense Read more: https://cebudailynews.inquirer.net/294366/cebu-expands-quarantine-protocols-to-all-intl-arrivals#ixzz6GoFwNBTo
  3. Hmmm.. I guess the quarantine of Manila, Dinagat, and Bohol, schools suspended in Cebu, shoppers making runs on supermarkets, hoarders buying up medical alcohol and other health supplies, potential bans on church masses, movies and other public gatherings, etc. doesn’t count. 🤷‍♂️ As the tourism dollars or peso’s start drying up, food stocks start running low and people that have money start clamping down on their spending, sit back and watch what shakes loose.
  4. And his uniform apparently. I saw a pic of one of the girls wearing it. 😂
  5. Yes, I have to agree with you. It amazes me how the majority of the management staff here even manage to keep their jobs. I still can’t get it out of my head the time I was at Burger King for lunch at Ayala in Cebu and was told sorry Sir, no burgers, only chicken. 😂
  6. Well, something must be going on. The Cebu office is mostly always packed but obviously can’t afford to keep visa stickers in stock. Lol
  7. I would think that it could def. bring questions about how someone your age can sustain himself here long term w/o working illegally on a tourist visa. BTW, earning money from online activities while in the PH on a tourist visa, I think would be considered “working on a tourist visa”, as is earning income by teaching English on a tourist visa. It’s all in whether you get caught or not I guess.
  8. I would have sent them packing also. They are wrong on so many levels.
  9. Something to consider. My PLDT fiber modem has a 5G Wi-Fi and a non 5G Wi-Fi. Attached are Speedtests from both of those Wi-Fi connections. Non 5G makes a big diff in speed. Maybe your laptop is connecting to non 5G.

    Food panda

    I use Panda and Grab Food quite a bit. Keeps me from having to go out when I don’t feel like it. Panda is very efficient here in Cebu.
  11. Great, I have a connecting flight in Shanghai in April. 🤧
  12. Glad that she’s okay Steve. Yes, they would’ve all had their phones out recording but most likely wouldn’t have offered any assistance. Be careful ranting at people, ugly things happen to those who are deemed to have caused someone else to lose face, even when their in the wrong. Yes, there is right and wrong In our world but dying over it would be counterproductive as they never seem to see the error of their ways. He probably sees it as, if you were in your own Country where you belong, that never would’ve happened. Lol. Anyway, seems to be a hellish visit for you over here. Ready to relocate here permanently yet? Hahaha
