  1. Owning a Condo sounds a great idea but what about the Association Dues?, I have been told they vary anywhere between Php80 to over 100 Psm in the IT Park area. Does anyone have any solid figures. Thanks
  2. I have been using BPI insurance located in FGU Bldg in Ayala for over 15 years and found them on par with others.
  3. The thought has also crossed my mind if and when I buy a new car. A friend recently purchased a new car in Manila and drove it down to Cebu. Two ferry crossings which he said were no hassle also the roads were all good.
  4. I have a Mitsubishi Adventure which I purchased new 17 years ago and is still giving sterling performance. The only "major expense" was having to change the fuel pump a couple of years ago, but that was because I had Mitsubishi do the work.
  5. The first part of this editorial puts an interesting twist on things. http://www.philstar.com/freeman-opinion/2017/03/23/1683830/are-our-new-navy-vessels-merely-show
  6. Looks like he may have flown the coup. http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/local-news/2017/03/20/hold-departure-order-out-vs-road-rage-suspect-532011
  7. I think what is being said is none of these three match the guy who did the skimming at the ATM outside The Henry Hotel in Banilad last year.
  8. How does one obtain a driver's licence if one is only a tourist? or have I misread the rules?
  9. I have a white and a black Mustang within 50 meters of my residence..
  10. I wonder if these are the same guys who did the ATM Scam at the Henry Hotel ATM late last year. They were slated as foreigners and Turkish looking??
  11. I got a set from ScubaWorld in Y.P. Yap Street in Cebu. They have/had various grades of lenses in stock to fit Tusa Diving Masks.
  12. I had the same problem. Go to the bottom of the web page, click on Theme and select IPS Default. The problem should go away.
  13. I actually thought traffic in Cebu was far worse yesterday even with a jeepney strike and many schools closed.
  14. Here's a MX5 which has been in the same spot for 10+ years.
