  1. wonder what they do if you have a high temperature? I have to imagine there are 100's of thousands of people with a temperature in the PI on any given day
  2. Who was responsible for explaining the work conditions before they arrived? Thats the one I would say messed this up.
  3. If you can find some 3M 5200 marine adhesive I guarantee it will hold anything once cured... google it... get the fast cure.
  4. I don't know about you all... but using unsecured wifi resulted in more spam email than I ever thought possible. And thats in the US as well as the PI. I use my phone and hotspot for everything other than checking weather... wouldn't type anything close to personal or important into an unsecured wifi.... and yeah, I know nothing is guaranteed either way
  5. For Taiwan My wife niece just took the whole family on vacation to Taiwan without any visas last month... website also says: Yes, Philippine citizens can visit Taiwan from another country other using visa-free entry program as long as they hold a confirmed return/onward plane or boat ticket together with an ordinary/regular passport with remaining validity of at least six months, and the confirmation of hotel reservations or an address and contact details for their stay in Taiwan. https://www.roc-taiwan.org/ph_en/post/2950.html
  6. Good question... but to avoid any issue... why not just fly with PAL.... book Cebu to Vancouver with the non-stop from Manila to Vancouver... prices aren't as bad as you think.... and be sure to check baggage costs when comparing... i.e. cheap ticket with $100 in baggage or a 24 hr layover may not be as cheap as it might look.
  7. Let's face it, the Philippines may be about the harshest environment you can find wrt exterior paint. Painting every 3 years for a fresh look would be reasonable. Fading is better than peeling. Washing once or twice a year may help as well. For sure green has more opportunity due to pigments to show fading than say whites or beiges.... but who uses those colors in the PI?
  8. Color is important... but just as important is the type of paint you use and when/how you apply it. Priming the surface is often missed but makes a huge difference how long it will last. I would buy the best acrylic paint you can find... semi-gloss or even gloss. You do get what you pay for when it comes to paint. Paint when not in direct sunlight if you can, it allows the paint to cure properly. Paint early enough so the paint will dry before the evening humidity climbs higher.
  9. If you want to get a B-1/B-2 visa to the USA, and you are using "spouse" as the reason in the application/interview, you're gonna get flagged... because the B-1/B-2 visa has nothing to do with being a spouse.... you'll be viewed as trying to bypass the system.
  10. wow... you have sidewalks... with passing lanes??????
  11. tourist visa is absolutely possible... I know of several who have gotten them in past few months... there are factors that make it hard(er).... but far from impossible
  12. Same thing most Filipinos who live overseas don't like.... don't like being so far away from the family back home.
  13. https://www.export.gov/article?id=Philippines-Franchising might be helpful... but looks complicated at a minimum.... at least to me
  14. You always need permission, and the town/barangay is the place to ask and get it.
  15. I'll second the "don't do it", and further offer not to get involved, hide your wallet on this subject, and stay as far away as possible. My wife went through this sort of fiasco (inheritance and land/house transfers) in spades. Biggest mess I've ever observed in my life. Lawyers love this... you can't burn your money much faster. After 10 years I told her just forget about it (it's still being contested). Plus the problem exponentially escalates each generation thats things aren't settled as the family involved "grows". OK... I'm sure there are situations where everything worked out well and easily :) But I'll bet it's not the norm.
