What will get me when I go to ask a salesperson something and I cant hear or understand through a facemask as well as a face shield and probably soon a Hazmat suit. Then add the plastic shield at the

That's nothing. GF bought some avocado shake which I think has cream on the top when we were at the mall on Saturday. Using a spoon full of this stuff she managed to smear the shield good but I guess

Thats abit rough. Beauty is in the eye of, well you know but what's ugly to you may not be to someone else besides Filipinos and us think differently as some I have talked to seem to think westerners

Id love to be able to give you a reply, but havent been near the airport in 6 months.. i can see it from my apartment but thats as close as Im getting to the airport at the moment. Knowing how enterprising some filipinos are, im sure they might be for sale in those small sarisari stores that are just outside the airport......or maybe even inside the airport........It may depend which terminal you arrive at.....

The ones we have come in small box and you put it together so probably easy to bring one with you but then again now you must wear while flying so you will have one unless something changes.

Same here - easy to assemble/disassemble as needed. I wonder if the airline should supply them as they are required?

I read that in Manilla they were stopping jeepneys and giving shields to anyone not wearing. Good idea.

I doubt it since it is not their requirement rather a requirement from another authority. I notice you can take them off when the airline says so such as to eat. Seems an overkill to me.

Agreed. I think it's no more than a case of the authorities being seen to be doing something more than something which has proven effectiveness.

Haz Mat suits next?

Maybe not a good excuse but when you organise a big event at least somewhere to put trash would help but look at any event anywhere, new years eve celebrations and the clean up after is the same.

Just to add for example here in the IT park garden bloc area there are trash bins and recycle bins around the park. Back in the days when there were people and more so on Friday nights and weekends the bins would always be overflowing so the point is if they are there they most likely will be used. 

I one hundred percent agree with you. The organizers should be responsible for providing facilities garbage/toilet for there event. If they are not there or are not usable it does not give the right to just ignore common sence to pack out your own crap and leave the place in the same way you found it.

Common sense? I don't observe much of that recently...

Yesterday we ventured out to shop for some items for the home...

One SM mall (Lanang) required masks and face shields. They also wanted to look in the back of the car - that has never happened before as long as I've had the car, at military checkpoints, malls, etc... We were both puzzled - were they looking for the virus back there?

Several stores later and no more shields required. Then, the other SM (Ecoland) did not seem to require shields - maybe only 25% of customers wearing them but virtually all employees.

I hated wearing one and felt hot and claustrophobic. I could hardly wait to get outside. I understand the logic, but think it is not a good idea generally...at least for customers...just my opinion. Many people wearing them in the required mall just had them perched on top of their heads...and most of the same also didn't have their noses covered with their masks.

Please refer back to my previous post re common sense...

Been doing that for years here in Manila, looking in the trunk and a mirror under the car for bombs i suppose.

We usually carry a large ice chest in the back, while they look in the back and trunk they have never looked in the ice chest,,,,now i know where to hide the bomb :hystery:
