Philippines Experience

  • Philippines
    Visited 1 to 5 trips
  1. Kodi for me - particularly grateful to NBC SN for sharing their English Premiership games.
  2. Looks good: https://www.cnet.com/uk/news/4k-hdmi-cables-are-nonsense/
  3. Spot on gmn47... we tend to use "oriental" for east Asians.
  4. Definite improvement on the WLPH in Baybay.
  5. Thanks - When you say you have you put 3 kids thru training - was that here or were you somewhere else? My big worry is organisation, supervision and discipline - none of which I see at my child's school! Or many other places in the Philippines so why it would be different in Taekwondo summer camp I don't know. And whilst you've never seen any "physical contact" and like you I wouldn't expect any at that age... There always seems to be some idiot around who wants to show off their kicks... unless there's things are properly organised and supervised etc.
  6. My wife would like my son to go to taekwondo classes in the summer, her cousin's children in Singapore go to taekwondo... When she mentioned it I looked online for guidance and quite frankly my feeling is the chances of the classes being taught properly and more importantly (to me) safely here in Leyte provinces is zero. He's 4 1/2 and if I was in the UK they probably wouldn't let him start until he is 6. I'd be happy for him to do it in the UK as I know things would be done properly there and in the event of an accident there'd be a decent local hospital available to pick up the pieces.
  7. Great film "A Few Good Men" ... maybe they could do a sequel to it...
  8. Only this one ?
  9. We hardly use ours either but very handy when something glass breaks.
  10. Seems your not alone: Fortunately I don't have the cyclone thing .
  11. Before I bought a dyson I went through a couple of smaller vacs like those - always a good idea to check how much the bags cost and whether they're readily available. Some of the bags are very expensive. BTW you're right emptying the bagless vac can be a bit messy - I always do it outside and put the dust chamber in a plastic bag before I shake it around to empty it.
  12. Thanks topcat... I had no idea what you were talking about either
  13. This one looks nice but it is a little pricey http://www.lazada.com.ph/sirena-the-total-home-cleaning-system-with-power-nozzle-blue-493686.html

  15. I agree with woolf - It's what are you going to use it for - my (wife's) top priority is photos - so I went for one with a decent camera - then I want something that's easy to read... so I also want a decent screen not too small... and just go on like that - here you (I) want something with a decent battery life - ultra power saving mode - fast charging... etc etc
