  1. I've had the same problem, I was rubbing my eyes with my fingers constantly which only made it worse but I couldn't stop, it started in January. I did a round of antibiotics which seemed to get rid of it for awhile but it came back, my wife has some allergy drops (Olopatadine) but they didn't work for me, Zyrtec and Clariton didn't work either but they do help with the sneezing and runny nose, I bought some Avamys spray (Fluticasone furoate) at mercury drugs which is the same as Flonase stateside and it helps a lot.
  2. https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/health-problems/coronavirus-chinese-wet-markets-still-operation-despite-covid19/news-story/104a81601ff7b94fec6dae3e158ad0a1?utm_source=News.com.au&utm_campaign=EditorialSF&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_content=SocialFlow&fbclid=IwAR2lRzG1Np8nCgV9Ga9jWnmSTcy2a7hDTHf5SPszQZQkf4ot4AVeEfdB60g
  3. Here in Subic Freeport we can't even go for a walk or walk the dog.
  4. There is also strong evidence that the Spanish flu started in China but they really don't know for sure.
  5. A lot of people are posting on social media and news outlets and pubic officials have said this virus is no worse than the flu, when's the last time you heard of so many Doctors succumbing to the flu in a short period of time, this is evidence that we are dealing with something more deadly for sure.
  6. I think there's a flaw in the qualification for the payments, they are going to use 2019 tax returns which is income for 2018, what if a single person was making more than 75k in 2018 but lost his job or retired at a much lower rate, in this case they wouldn't qualify for the full amount or wouldn't get anything at all if they made over 99k, is there something wrong with my logic here.
  7. Here in subic freeport we can't go out at all, only one family member and only to get supplies with a pass, I was harassed multiple time yesterday on my bicycle and the maid can't walk the dog anymore, tomorrow I'm going to put my backpack on and go to the duty free to get a few things, at least that way I can get some sun and exercise.
  8. I think that's probably the reason that craft beer hasn't caught hold here like most other places, the cost. The ingredients have to be imported, hops will grow in the Philippines but won't flower due to the short light cycle all year long, plus most Filipinos can't afford to pay the higher prices and I suspect there's some pride that goes with drinking the local beer.
  9. It's possible that the Enkanto I tasted was from a different batch, I was a bit to harsh calling it swill but it tasted like it was fermented at too high a temperature and thus too fruity for me but it was drinkeable, I didn't want another after I was done, they may have a problem controlling fermentation temp with the weather here, I'm using a temp controller I got on Lazada. I had a couple of beers in Boracay at Los Indios Bravos restaurant that were good, I don't remember the name of the brewery and I also had a couple at Bikes and Brews in Angeles that were good, I almost wish we had moved there.
  10. I brought a few bottles of Blanton’s bourbon here that my brother gave me, I’m not a hard liquor drinker but in times like these I think I shall acquire the taste. Cheers
  11. when we moved here I thought it was still open because it still showed up on google maps with open hours, I walked around the mall for an hour looking for it...what a disappointment, that Enkanto IPA or whatever the name is that they sell in Royal duty free is swill.
  12. Well I kegged my latest beer yesterday and hooked them up to the CO2 tank to pressurize, got up this morning and I'm out of CO2...screwed, no way to refill now. I might throw some sugar in them and let them naturally carbonate, I will get a few beers out before the pressure is lost, then I just wait for better days I guess.
  13. If I was still in the market crude oil is where I'm putting my money, not yet because there's still potential for it to drop more because the demand has now dried up, OPEC cutting back means nothing at this point, I drive my car once every couple days now verses 4 times a day. Someday though it will turn around like it always does, petroleum products are everywhere in our households not just in our vehicle, this is just my opinion though and I'm no Warren Buffet.
  14. I've done the Chinook and dead Ringer IPA clones using Norther Brewers recipes, both were fantastic beers. I shipped a 20l speidel braumeister in a balikbayan box, it makes all grain pretty much plug and play and it's 220v, I've had it for about 11 years. Thanks for the tip on BrewHa, prices aren't too bad considering, I'm sure they probably won't be shipping during this crazy time. I can't figure out why my pics are coming out sideways but here it is.
  15. What beer kits do you have? Are they clones? I wish I had brought some dark grains for a stout, I'll have to have my friend fill up another box at some point. I thought that there would be some microbreweries around subic when I decided to land here but there's notta, there's one Philippine brewer that has an IPA and imperial IPA in the royal store here but it's not good at all, tastes too fruity, I miss variety, pretty much lager or bust here unless you live near Makati or maybe in Cebu city
