  1. If they are over 60 and have worked for you a long time, i would imagine the SSS payments you made on their behalf and a free house would more than enough. You did pay their SSS?
  2. Wonder if it was a large labia!
  3. According to the map, people from Pakistan and Afghanistan are more tolerant of another race than Filipino's. Another bullshit survey.
  4. To me that has nothing to do with racism, rather more to do with her managing to get a better price than you. . I normally tell the wife to disappear when i want to haggle, as she gives in way to easily.
  5. Lucky you. I rely solely on my Philippine license, as the British government does not renew the licenses of its citizens who are not resident in the country.
  6. Eh? Funny i was sitting drinking with a group of around 15 foreigners just the other day in the municipality of Nagcarlan which is next to Victoria. By the way 3 of the guys were ex marine US MCA.
  7. You are not the only foreigner living in Victoria. You need to get out more, as there are plenty of foreigners living in Victoria, Pila, Santa Cruz, Los Banos. I also live in a 4th class municipality and the grading has nothing to do with the quality of life for its residents.

  11. We have used a managers cheque's from Metrobank on numerous occasions without any problems.
  12. Imagine being raised by frugal parents
  13. You cant open a Ladbrokes account from the Philippines or Cambodia. Even using my British bank cards they will freeze the account. http://helpcentre.ladbrokes.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/269/~/restricted-territories
  14. Why not plant a few coffee trees in your garden. Cat eats ripe coffee berries and poops. You collect and roast the beans creating Johns Visayan Cat poo chino.
  15. The attitude of some of the wife's married to foreigners, is something that has stood out to myself and the wife. We spent the first 15 years or so living here without any foreign friends and after some of the recent incidents, we will probably go back to not socializing with expats and there wife's
