  1. Since Morente is Commissioner for the entire BI and not just for Luzon and since in my province which I can't leave due to the lockdown and there isn't a BI where I can renew I am going to take the chance that it is now for the entire Philippines now we are almost all in enhanced community lockdown.
  2. Visa renewals waived while coronavirus calamity ongoing, nationwide. http://www.immigration.gov.ph/images/News/2020_Yr/03_Mar/2020Mar20_Press.pdf Second to the last paragraph
  3. Nah, I just like tinned sardines and tuna on skyflakes! Got the generator the day after Ursula and the following day my electricity was back!
  4. Forget the rice for brownouts, takes too much water to cook. Instead keep a stock of skyflakes or something similar, be sure to rotate/use as they do go stale. Tinned sardines and/or tuna. I generally have several different varieties/flavors around to break up the monotony. Do you have a generator or motorcycle to get around? In that case a 5 gallon/20 liter container of gas can come in handy. FYI my 3100kwh generator uses about 5 liters of gas every 7 hours of use.
  5. Chest infection can be caused by viral or bacterial infection. What percentage caused by viral???? Vitamin D is produced by being in the sun. I seem to remember 15 minutes in the sun per day satisfied your Vitamin D requirement for a day. You have to be careful with fat soluble vitamins, you can overdose with them if you are not careful as they are stored in fat and not readily excreted.
  6. Can you not understand a 14+ day asymptomatic incubation period and air travel?
  7. Apparently China is trying to do an end run on Giliad; https://www.scmp.com/business/article/3049227/who-owns-magic-cure-chinas-move-patent-gileads-experimental-drug-could A spokeswoman for the Foster City, California-based company said it had invented remdesivir, and had filed patent applications for the compound and its uses against coronaviruses globally, including in China, in 2016. The application in China is still pending.
  8. How is the situation in Dumaguete now that a confirmed corona virus infectee passed through?
  9. You can renew your visa 2 weeks before it expires. That gives you two weeks to begin your application. Your new visa then runs from the expiration date of your old visa.

  11. I also experience low to no water pressure on weekends during those times, sometimes to the extent that I turn on a tap and hear air being drawn in! I suspect that it is a combination of too small a water supply (read water main) an too many people using booster pumps sucking all the water out of the supply piping in my subdivision to fill their storage tanks. The water main running along the road to our subdivision is 5" blue plastic. I don't know what is within my subdivision but suspect smaller. I wonder how much negative pressure the joints on the blue piping can stand before the seals fail an dirt is drawn into the piping.
  12. a Smart tower? I use Globe during brownouts as I found them to usually be powered during these outages.
  13. My gf is in training for Eperformax and says starting rate will be 16k/mo. Eperformax is tied into a business travel website in the US arranging flights and hotel rooms in the US only at this time. I have told here in that call center work will be difficult for her as her shift will be from 9pm to 6am. Anyone have experience with this?
  14. Not correct. The library you can access is based on your IP address, not where you signed up. To get the US library you need to use a VPN that isn't blocked.
  15. I have a TCL 4k on the way from Lazada. Best bang for the buck I was able to find. Cost-wise I would have had to pay almost double for a Sony or LG. I would recommend to stay away from Sharp based on personal experience.
  16. I have and had a 50% success rate with Ryobi. Not the easiest thing to do and instructions vary. Essentially you are bypassing the circuitry to get a minimal charge in the cells and then let the circuitry take over. If you have a dead cell or cells in your pack it will not work.
  17. Craftsman tools are now made in China and have been for at least the last 5+ years. I believe there are now 3 grades. The hardest to find, and the most pricey, are the Lifetime Warranty ones. The most common ones are the ones that are warranted until they break, then you need to buy a new one.
  18. If you are a Filipino by birth what aren't you getting your dual citizenship? Bring your receipt showing you paid for the acr-i card. No need to bring photos if they didn't take one when you applied for the card. The photo that will be used is the electronic one from your passport. My acr-i card took 2+ months before it was available to be picked up. Your experience may vary.....
  19. Typical moonshine is about 160 proof out of the still... Don't ask how I know..
  20. Bring your own, best not to chance not finding them.
  21. Mine was a Panasonic also... And agree the bread was on the heavy side. Mixed well but the loaf needed to proof longer and higher.
  22. In the States I would use a bread machine and then transfer to a loaf pan to bake in the oven. Was better able to control the rise and the bread wasn't as dense as when totally made in the bread machine. I also had branched out into making baguettes and sourdough breads, yummy! In addition to SM I have heard you can get your flours in S & R stores, an Italian friend of mine who bakes bread mentioned. Have not baked since I came to the Philippines though, no oven. Will be moving in a couple of months, hopefully to a place with an oven!
  23. Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito were all veterans of their respective militaries. Hirohito was not prosecuted after WWII because it was thought he was more a figurehead, the actual instigators in Japan were the military heads.
