  1. We bought a unit in Tower 3 at Marco Polo, not yet completed and handed over.(late as usual) Anyone got a unit in Tower 1 or 2 and living or renting out there? Nice to know of any 'problems' to look out for.
  2. I saw a guy also on a motorcycle actually texting with one hand and steering with the other.!!! This law will be very hard to enforce here, the 'Texting Capital of the World'.
  3. Obviously a 'sub mariner'.
  4. Anybody know if they do this stuff in bigger sizes?
  5. Well obviously you did!!!
  6. Absolutely correct Davaoeno,Last paragraph of your post "sums it all up".
  7. He needs to successfully take the Board Exam. This will give him a much better chance as he will be licensed. Then, check out the newspapers, especially the Manila Bulletin job section on a Sunday. Use the Internet to search for Agencies in his particular Field. Good Luck to him.
  8. Ditto, we have 5 local dogs.
  9. No such thing as "wrong lane" in the Philippines.
  10. Obviously taking a long dump!!!
  11. Assuming that all the kids have flown the nest and are self sufficient and you and the wife have no debt, I would think P75,000 would give you a comfortable life style. However, its the 'emergency money' that you must consider. Recently, my MIL spent just 4 days in ICU before passing away, bill was P355,000. So I would think as much as possible should be sorted away for such eventualities.
  12. 29 pages and ongoing!!!! My heads 'done in', maybe best I don't dine out anymore so as to save the hassle of "to tip or not to tip".

  14. I'll do a straight swap for a bridge I have !!!
