  1. Those white lines are just decorations. They did not cover that subject in school.

  3. Billoncho, Internet speed is okay thru PLDT. It slows down at times but for the most part, it is not a problem except when we lose electricity. During the heat of the summer, it is common to have a brown out for one or maybe two days a month. You can get small apartments for around 6500 to 10,000 pesos a month. A stand alone house can cost about 15,000 up per month. Veggies are cheap at the local stands but foods from a grocery store are higher than I pay in Nashville, TN area. Tricycle rates are high here. They cost as much as taking a taxi in Baguio. Supposedly the rate is 15 pesos to go anywhere in the city. It practice, that is not true. All of the trikes have their route, if you vary from their route, you will pay 70 pesos. Water is cheap, normally 118 per month but no one drinks it. Electricity is higher than the Nashville area. No aircon during the cool months, about 3000, with aircon for one room runs me during the heat of the summer, 7500. There are two nice malls here now for walking around but has very few western items.
  4. How did you teach that dog to sit in a chair? Haha!
  5. Before I came here two years ago, I did an internet search for hours trying to find a volunteer organization to work with here. I ran into the same issue. All of them wanted to be paid insane amounts of money to volunteer my time. I looked into getting a visa associated with being a volunteer and did find out that it has to be with a Philippine Govt. approved organization. Then I emailed everyone that I could find an email address for asking for help finding a list of these approved organizations. After two years, still no replies. Personally, I gave up.
  6. https://www.rappler.com/views/animated/216456-china-telco-play-in-the-philippines "The road to D-Day was paved with new protocols, new rules, and new timelines that observers say only the muscled with insider information could comply with. And the winner turned out to be the favored one." "Duterte had no one else in mind but his best ally, China. As early as last year, he invited the Asian giant to invest and help boost the telco sector." I thought I read, a month or so ago, that the 3rd Teleco was a real estate development company?
  7. At least we get some nice cool weather several days before a typhoon hits here in Tuguegarao. Will be buttoning down the hatches before bed tonight.
  8. How long ago we're you last in the US? I was slightly shocked at the price of Wolf brand Chili I saw in the local Metro store until I made a quick trip to the US and found that at Walmart in the US, the price was 2/3 the cost of that in the local Metro store. Considering shipping and tax, I see it as more reasonable. I checked some prices on line before making the comment.
  9. I ordered from Lazada several times and everything was great. After the Chinese bought them, problems started.
  10. Does this mean that I will not have to pay thrice as much for a can of tomatoes? Currently the price of any canned goods is three times the price as in the USA.
  11. If you get further north to Tuguegarao city, give me a shout.
  12. Thanks, yes the Toyota deslership is maybe 4.5 K away.
