  1. Past hour
  2. Now that's fresh food!
  3. Headshot is giving good advice here. I would definitely want to spend some time "on site" while work is being done. Don't stay all day and don't stand close to them while they work etcetera, but keep an eye out and calmly speak to them if you see they're not doing something quite right.
  4. I can drink or shall I say did drink Scotch while on that diet with no issue, I also went off the diet at some of the get together's years ago and drank Tanduay Ice and other times San Mig lite on ice and had no issues, I rarely drink now and rarely drank back then, so I did not have a problem but some people are prone to get addicted, I am not and most people are not. ugly American, good to see it is working for you, whenever I am on it my blood tests come back perfect, that was one thing I had worried about but my heart doctor told me it is a great diet for hearts as long as a person sticks to it, I am not a doctor but being overweight can kill a person as fast as anything else, so the diet might actually save a life but everyone's mileage may vary, use caution and have blood tests whenever on any diet to make sure it does not mess with any meds you may be on or your body. One friend was a type 2 diabetic who went on that diet and lost 60 lbs and no longer needed any medicine for that or blood pressure, so weight can do bad things to some of us.
  5. They're acting like idiots who hit their toes with bricks, bandage it, and then hit again and repeat all over. And people still manage to blame the bandage not bricks! I suppose this new trend is really good for business and I should support them
  6. Yes ... my wife and I drove up there 2 weeks ago an bought a bunch of strawberries... also .. lettuces, arugula, cucumbers and such. its 20KM from the highway.. and the highway is more or less VERY good.. except for one section ..where you might wonder whether to continue on up... persevere as its just a short stretch of road. It was great to get up in elevation for some cool fresh air. Fresh straberries are 800 Pesos per Kilo. Nice trip.
  7. Today
  8. Wife kicked you to the curb already?
  9. hear the couger roar age is just a number he said he will love her long time
  10. I had no problem getting a plastic DL card. I asked the people at the LTO office in SM City Mall what LTO offices had the plastic cards available. They told me the ONLY place that consistently has the cards is the main Cebu City LTO office. I went there, applied for renewal, went through their short routine, and walked out an hour later with a plastic DL card in my wallet.
  11. I don't understand the reason why some of you have a deep grudge with Mr. Wonderful. Although I have to admit that the only posts I've read from him are from the Food forum. I don't know how he was on other forums. His detailed shopping report has been valuable information to me. I like his insights and opinion from those reports as well. I understand why he likes to hoard. Most of us that have lived here for awhile know that if you spotted an imported product that you like on the shelf, buy as much as you need. Assume it's the last in stock because they almost always are. Most of the time, it would be months or years before you see them again.
  12. Provided the owner paid the correct bribes to the police, mayor, barangay captain and perhaps the governor's office, ya' know?
  13. Go to: Manila US Embassy anytime. US Consular Agency, when they have an Outreach scheduled.
  14. Nope cant find what LTE bands supported send an e-mail to beverly
  15. Can somebody give me an information of insurance company (car/house) that any of you guys use? Also, any of you have a good experienced of toyota dealers in cebu? Thank you in advance Lynette
  16. The closes US hot dog i found yesterday at S&R was Corn Dogs 18 in a box they are from Calif 

  17. Don't try that in the Philippines. It won't work out that nicely for you.
  18. Thanks, that seems like a better way to get to SM city. I guess a taxi would be the smarter move after that.
  19. Due to proof of billing problems with Cignal I'm going the monthly PAYG route, the best option for me is the 800php pm load. The higher price options don't really include anything of interest to me. The upfront cost is 3990php plus the first month 800php, all payable to the installation guys, and I'm good to go. Also there's no contract and you can change the loads every month to suit yourself. I hope the new BBC channels are included in my 800php. Once I get my brand new tv that came with a free cracked screen replaced ill be calling Cignal.
  20. We have a stove that has electric and gas burners. We only use the Shell brand LPG tanks for reliability and safety. Regulators are availble that has an auto shutoff feature when a leak is detected.
  21. No, I am not sure, but I think there might be a good chance that you get same quality which you are used to - of course evacuation would mean that something very serious happens. My current insurance would evacuate me straight away - no questions asked - even if not needed. As soon as I would be able travel they would evacuate me. They want to have control over the costs and here in the Philippines they would not have it.
  22. I suppose if I wait until 11:50am before arriving I would probably get the same deal:)
  23. Not all terrorists are bad. I bought a kebab off one the other day and he gave me a free bottle of Coke...
  24. i experience cyclonce larry in far north qld very strong the whistling of the wind was very wild took the roof off the house on the northern side and flatternd a huge amount of trees
  25. I want to get a banca built also but to my specs and catamaran style. Basically 2 banca's, no outriggers and a passenger cabin in the middle. I just need to find someone I trust to build it. Close by so I can be there and watch it being built.

    • You should only consider this if you're at least 100 pounds overweight and have had no success with dieting. The gastric band is a pretty safe procedure, and has a full 90% success rate for those who stick with the post-surgery guidelines.
