    Are Filipinos Racists?

    I was persificate in my answer, not a general aerial compass answer, but then again, tell it to the high court of Australia, they have just ruled on the eligibility of Senators and MP's in our parliament for being descendants of another nationality. By elections were called. Still on topic: Who would want to disown their place of birth, taking out Citizenship of another country still makes you ineligible of a lot of jobs.

    Why Dumaguete?

    If you have been following the posts, it is relevant the answers JJ gave, he was talking about Dumaguete. he was explaining his intentions if he retired in the PI"s, which is something a lot of us don't think about, ( Alzheimer's won't happen to me is in most mindsets,) Me on the other hand carried on with the conversation, no place was mentioned by me, it could have been Dumaguete I was talking about. As for his last post, it is relevant also, he was explaining how much work he'd put into his proposed business venture, it is something a lot of people don't do, instead they go off halfcoked and then end up whining about it to anyone that will listen when the venture falls in a heap. I could add, PM JJ as loss of concentration in understanding written material, is an early sign of Alzheimer's, looks like he has the heads up on the disease, but I won't as it might offend.

    We originated from England but don't call us Poms or Limeys, we're Ozzies. No offense anyone with a thin skin.

    Why Dumaguete?

    I had a mind set like yours, JJ, I was going to do this and that, but I've a wife that sounds much like yours. How much is enough, if you've got stable earning assets why bother. I've been convinced, I'm too old to worry about businesses now and my wife is pretty frugal when it comes to spending and we will not run out of money before one drops of the perch. As for caring for us, if we both become incapacitated she has got a 34 year old son that I get on well with and I'm not worried about not being cared for if his mother passes before me.

    JJ, sorry but I thought you were talking about homecare in the PI's, yes western home care is out of most peoples price range, but in the PI's, I've no qualms about growing old there and needing help if I need it down along the track.

    Why Dumaguete?

    JJ, is that medical care your talking about or homecare, why I ask, because a lot of my inlaws have one foot in the grave and all the family does is pay for a nurse to be with them 24/7. A good doc, (not a healer) visits them once a week and hospitalize them if need be until they recover or go to meet their maker. Some of us with our medical history would put the best hypochondriac to shame, so what I'm trying to say, it doesn't matter at our age if we get crook just so long as your basic needs are met and it doesn't matter where you fall off the perch. As long as you can pay the bill at the end of the day, you'll be alright in most hospitals. Remember dead foreigners don't pay bills, it's in their interest to keep you kicking. Also PI's don't know dead foreigners either for payment of bills.

    The realities of VERY low income living here

    Whom am I quoting, Capa, Marlin or Seth, very confusing trying to keep up with your train of thought, most trolls you can pick as a trouble maker or like to disrupt a conversation. Most fox terriers you give a scolding too, they stand back out of your reach and keep yapping, are you like that or are you one of the terriers that settle down and join the fun other people enjoy.
  9. Only ever had one problem, a little chick asked me what I'd come to the PI's for, the wife was standing beside me holding our marriage certificate and she was looking at it along with the air tickets. In good Ozzy lingo I told her, gnitoo- dna gnikinrd, the wife took over the conforsation and I know the sheilar didn't understand, her face didn't change colour. Like some of the posts said, it's a pain after being cramped on a plane then being asked a lot of silly questions when it's obvious what you have come for. Translation of phase: write the letters down starting from backwards to forwards. The language was used by butchers when dealing with difficult customers.

    Too hot or too cold

    I think it is called power loss on the bill, explained to me as a way for the electricity company to recuperate their loses from jumpers, ( where an illegal connection by someone in your area is made.) All areas are metored out and if the figures don't add up, then the shortfall is divided between the legal connectors and they pay for it. Just a note: getting less by each electrocution death.

    Are Filipinos Racists?

    As the original post asks, Are Filipinos racist, of course they are, my wife often calls me a White pri==, when I upset her. Now if that's not racist what is, I've got a beard and I'm weathered by the sun, I look nothing like a pri==. I hope that answers your question.

    Too hot or too cold

    It's not the actual price of the electricity, it's all the add ons that make the power bills so high.
  13. It's that time of the year and if mates like Seth's continue to confront the children beggars that way, we will have another posting, "Foreigner found dead" posted. I for one keep my wallet in my front pocket with my hand on it when riding in jeeps or buses and I also keep a few 10 peso coins in the other. Like other posts, it's them pleading brown eyes that play on the heart strings and what is 20 cents, you'd have to add up 7/8 knockbacks to do you out of a beer. Let's all be jolly it is the time for giving and loving.

    Where do you find a wife/Gf that will allow you to drink that much?

    Is Tipping 20% Too Much in the Philippines?

    What are you trying to say, instead of bringing one balikbayan box full of money, I'll need two to get a pretty one, what a bummer.
