  1. I was reading a British newspaper online, which said that the EU and the UK wouldn't accept any one entering that didn't have a inoculation approved by the European drug administration. This effectively puts the block on the Russian and the Chinese versions if you need to come back for any reason. I dont think you can have 2 different types mixed together, but I may be wrong here.
  2. Very sad. I met him once a long time ago swore like a trooper, no ladies around, you could tell he was a navy man. A real mans man. A real shame.
  3. I bought an electric telescopic ham radio mast cost £1500, this virtually doubled with customs duty and Philippine shipping the package weighed coming up to 100 kg. customs held it up for a month, the duty they make up as they go along, and the transport to my home was a rip off. 3 men struggling to get it off the truck an it was a small box van. I had to enlist the philippine amateur radio association to get it out of customs (I am a member) or it would still be there, they also make an extra charge for storage by the day. never again. even cheap items attract the customs sharks. I had a
  4. I buy Barako ground coffee here. Grown in the Philippines, and its easy to find here in Iba. I use an industrial percolator and that does about 1 ½ gallons. I do like coffee and drink gallons of it, probably so much its a danger to health, I still sleep ok though.
  5. Yes you are right, it was Dual. but in my cock up deliverance was a good film as well
  6. Yes I looked at this, but am not sure if paypal send the code by sms. my bank send the code by an automated voice, which works fine. I will just give paypal the elbow. I can use a bank transfer in the UK.
  7. Thanks, Had a look but no good for the UK
  8. I don't know if this applies to all expats or just the Europeans. I use papal a few times a year just to buy the odd secondhand bit of radio stuff or to buy from Ebay. This used to work just fine, I have a UK bank account ,and use my daughters cellphone number if they need to contact me she sends anything like this via messenger. Now paypal are insisting on a 2 factor security system, where they send you a code number by sms, that's ok my bank does the same. but the killer is that they won't accept a phone number thats not in the country you are registered in so no Philipine phone number.
  9. Thanks yes if you could give me his number I'd be obliged. Is he Philippino? if he is I'll get the wife to speak to him. Always have trouble with Philippno English on the phone. Yes I need someone to do as much as possible to avoid my travelling.
  10. 583 IMMIGRATION AND TRAVEL CONSULTANCY. CHRISTINE F. MENDOZA G/F ROVIMAR BLDG. MAC ARTHUR HIWAY COR. ROVIMAR ST. BALIBAGO ANGELES CITY PAMPANGA 2009. I emailed them and gave them the wifes number she was told of the costs
  11. Sorry missed a zero out should read 35000 PHP. you mist excuse my incompetence, my excuse I am getting old.
  12. Just as an aside, My wife contacted the accredited agent in Angeles, they wanted 3500 PHP and another 3500 at the end of getting a 13A, we will try another agent to see if this is the normal fee or just a long nose tax. Defiantly not paying that. I have mobility problems so I don't want to have to keep traveling up and down more than I have to.
  13. I Have decided to go for a 13A. just waiting for the agent to get back to me. Thanks to everyone who gave advice.
