  1. When posting an article, please put the article (only) in a quote so readers can tell what is in the article and what is your comments.  I corrected this one for you:



  2. even wrong picture for this article, but who cares.....that's journalism here
  3. would be nice to know in what area he is doing a/c maintenance/repair
  4. since six months this monster bus is already in Cebu City and until now nobody has a proper idea how to use it. one year free ride between SM City and Plaza Independencia - I doubt that this system will survive that period.
  5. Austal delivers first of two high-speed passenger ferries to 2GO Philippines, June 19, 2017 Austal Limited (Austal) (ASX:ASB) announced earlier today that the first of two 30-metre high-speed passenger ferries for the 2Go Group has been delivered, on-time and on-budget in the Philippines. Austal was awarded the A$13 million contract for the Incat Crowther-designed catamarans in June 2016 and construction has been completed at the Austal Philippines shipyard in Balamban, Cebu. Caption: The 30-metre Saint Camael, one of two high-speed passenger ferries constructed by Austal Philippines for 2Go of the Philippines Image courtesy of Austal Austal Chief Executive Officer David Singleton said the delivery highlights Austal’s proven capability to work successfully with external designers to meet customer requirements. “Austal continues to develop effective relationships with third party designers, such as Incat Crowther, to deliver customer vessels around the world. “Commercial programs such as 2Go, Seaspovill and Swire Pacific Offshore in the Philippines and the 70 metre Caspian Marine Services Offshore Crew Transfer Vessel built here in Australia, demonstrate Austal’s clear capability to work successfully with external designers and bodes well for our joint venture with Fassmer and the upcoming Offshore Patrol Vessels,” Mr Singleton said. Transporting up to 300 passengers at up to 25 knots, the Saint Camael has joined 2Go’s popular ‘Supercat’ fast ferry fleet and will operate five times a day between Cebu and Ormoc on Leyte Island in the Philippines Archipelago. Austal Philippines is currently constructing a 50-metre high-speed passenger ferry for Seaspovill of South Korea and a 56-metre high-speed passenger ferry for FRS of Germany. The second 30-metre high-speed catamaran ferry for 2Go is currently completing acceptance trials and is on schedule for delivery in July 2017.

  6. I also felt it, but it's still not mentioned in the PHIVOLCS website edit: now it's there: 21 Mar 2017 - 03:41 AM 10.58 123.70 15 3.4 002 km N 83° W of Asturias (Cebu)
  7. Metro Supermarket in Ayala, right side when you come from the main access to the supermarket. near the frozen food
  8. have seen the first BPI ATM in seaside today, placed in 3rd level. it's a simple red machine, only at the screen you can see it's a BPI
  9. have just received a SMS from Globe: As part of security measures during the Sinulog Festival, our signal will be blocked on Jan 14 and 15 in Cebu City, Talisay, Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue, and in Consolacion, Cordoba, Liloan and Minglanilla. Call, text and mobile data will be unavailable on these dates. This is in compliance with the directive of the National Telecommunications Commission. We'll continue to send updates on the unblocking of signal. Please follow @Talk2GLOBE on Twitter. Thank you. so not only the area near the Sinulog festivities will be affected, but a much wider area.
  10. what an increase.... and for sure this will not be the final amount they want to spend for the BRT. i have my doubts.........there have been more announcements before, as I remember one was that the BRT will start operation in 2014
  11. most of you have been sleeping at this time...
  12. the video is taken in Talisay (near fish port). Cebu begins behind that small bridge, seen almost at the end of the video. from thereon is the 40 km/h speed limit which nobody takes seriously.
  13. have seen him twice in SM City within a month. he really lost weight. last time he just bought a package of bred sticks or something similar at French Baker
  14. http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/local-news/2016/11/01/australian-and-his-partner-arrested-lewd-acts-507003 this is typical for Filipino journalism - almost all personal details about the foreigner: name, age, nationality, type of car, just the plate number is not given. and the partner involved is just simply a Filipina woman. never mind what that old guy has done, but this is a way to discriminate a foreigner. anyway, I was amazed this morning when reading that story because I thought that a Toyota Hilux has shock absorbers that would prevent the car from shaking in that situation.....
