  1. I bought a 180 Kawasaki Rouser a couple years back and rode the hell out of it before selling it, I paid like 65,000 cash for it. It was plenty of power for the city and for me and the wife to take long rides in the Rizal mountains etc. I've owned 3 Harleys back in the states and I really wouldn't want anything that big here, especially in Manila.
  2. Thanks for the advice Brett! I will avoid this. SM light for me as I'm not a big fan of the high alcohol beers, if I want to get wasted I'll do a few shots of Jameson with my SM lights!
  3. I've bought 2 sets of furniture in the 6 years I've been here. The first was cloth that basically fell apart in a year and the second is cloth also but it's held up for 2 years now but it's always been kinda itchy. It's hard to find good comfortable furniture here.
  4. That’s a shame. Maybe you should change carriers? I actually get much better speeds on my phones LTE with a globe sim than with my WiFi but if I was to use it all the time it would be too expensive compared to the monthly WiFi bill. But it is a great backup and I can switch over to it in less than a minute.
  5. You still are using the PC. When you turn on the WiFi hotspot on your phone you are creating a wireless network that you connect to with your PC... there will be a network name and password.... just search for wireless networks on your PC choose the network(ex:IPhone) put in the password and boom you are using the LTE from your phone. Just like connecting to a modem. Try it, you’ll like it! It also comes in handy when you change residences so you can do classes while waiting for your service to get reconnected.
  6. I just use my phone LTE and turn on the hotspot on the iPhone. I'll have wifi for as long as the phone battery and power bank(JBL Charge 3 speaker) last. But like you said my problem is usually the laptop. Bottom line, scheduled brownouts are no problem, and as long as I remembered to get a load on my phone and my laptop is fully charged unscheduled ones aren't so bad either.
  7. Welcome to the forum Brian!
  8. Try the Sandugo store. I wear a 10 but when my cousin was here he had no problem finding his size there. We usually go to the one across the highway from Ayala malls Feliz.
  9. I like the paper better. Every time I go somewhere now I come back with 2 pounds of coins in my pockets. I would imagine these 20's are pretty heavy so I better invest in a new belt to hold my pants up!
  10. I'm in the big city and surprisingly enough to me, I don't see many foriegners. When I do see one I usually do a head nod but rarely get anything back. Whether I get a reply or not I will just continue walking, same as I would have in the US when dealing with a stranger.
  11. You might have better luck trying to get a Union bank EON account rather than BDO or BPI.
  12. Whenever the wife and I are visiting family I usually rent/share a bike from one of them just for while we are there, and then only use the bike when we are going somewhere. I think I slipped the one cousin like a thousand and kept the gas full for him for the week last time. Maybe your girl has a family member that wants to make some cash?
  13. I don't think Leeches transmit any diseases. So if you see some on you just get them off then treat the cut with some antibiotic ointment. I worry more about mosquitos than leeches here.
