  1. But don't forget.......If you don't get the vaccine, you will die!!!!! said Duterte, but food for the children and poor.......we'll work on it after the election.
  2. Hello Phil and welcome to the forum. I won't spend time repeating was everyone has stated already, but please put all of their comments together and take them to heart. Making a move here as you have described (with children, etc.), is a major event, with numerous complications and rules that are elusive and change by the minute. In my opinion, to have a successful life here you must be very flexible, and extremely patient. Many of the laws and rules here are designed to not allow foreigners to take advantage of the country and the mainly passive population. So the laws can be very frustr
  3. Or maybe........ the Dear Stranded Reverend doesn't even exist and it's just another soapbox scam.......
  4. Dave, I think your point is much bigger than people think....... many countries (China, Russia, etc) report greatly deflated numbers to make them look favorable. It seems the same could be occurring here, until recently when it finally got out of control and couldn't be white washed............ As long as there is a Covid 19 crisis, the inflated, autocratic control over the people will continue to grow with an iron fist............Just my thoughts.
  5. JJ, Good luck to you and God Bless you, your wife and family. Please let me know if the "immersion" works for you when you return. I tried it a few years back had some success while living in Costa Rica. But I'm sure your Spanish base is much more in-depth than mine was at the time. Take care, be safe, and we will miss your participation. jw
  6. JJ, Most every post you share with us is well worth our reading, and is full of interesting, well versed comments, questions, and information. I'm happy that it works for you, and anytime I come across a couple with a life long relationship like yours, you have my deepest respect and admiration. I don't think I could bring myself to follow your approach, but then again, it could be why I haven't had a relationship like yours too...............yet? Thanks for sharing your thoughts, it was definitely "thought-provoking" for me.
  7. JJ, my wife and I were charged p10,000 (p5,000 each) for the test from the Red Cross Dipolog City. Sounds like it varies based on who your giving the money too.
  8. Tommy I have something similar that happens to my Fire Stick and after months of trying to figure it out, I have it narrowed down to the Express VPN. At first thought it was the PLDT signal (varying strong and weak continuously..... and the Fire Stick requires a constant strong bandwidth via the internet signal or it pauses or locks up), but then, I contacted Express VPN and they told me to switch to either Washington DC, Atlanta, or New Jersey. So I did that and it seemed to solve the problem. After a month or so it happened again, so I immediately switched from Washington DC to Atlanta an
  9. Oh my Dave........I think you hit the nail on the head..........No matter how hard I have tried, nothing will stop my wife from spreading financial details, as well as other details with her sisters and mom. Her family can tell me exactly how much my groceries cost. The day after my monthly deposits arrive, her family is aware of them....... and they start the sad stories of their money crisis for the month. I've learned to redirect all of their requests back to my wife............ let her deal with it.
  10. Jolly, There's a person at the Cebu BI that might be able to help you........... PM me if you're interested. Otherwise, I agreed. According to the published BI guidelines, you're good. It seems in my experience, ladies in the BI are strict to the rules and unflexible, but the men can be persuaded.......... Good Luck. j
  11. On My Way........I'm having identical problems to yours. Rebooting, etc, makes no difference. Interesting though........my wife is on a monthly prepaid Smart program and she has no problem at all??? and she's sitting right next to me. Something is fishy.......just no sure what.
  12. Ice, I flew Korean Air 2 weeks ago, and to be honest with you I was a bit disappointed. Not long ago if I flew them it was a 1st class experience. But now it's more like flying an American airline where the only time you even get a smile is when you are getting off the plane. The flight is ok, but the aircraft are older models with small seats. I had 1 stop and 1 3 hour delay. Good luck with your flight. John
  13. Amen Brother!!! I can definitely relate........and saying no is useless. No amounts to nothing more than a slight pause in your words.
