  1. Do you have to go back to pick it up? I renewed mine in Beijing a couple of years ago, had to make 2 visits to the embassy.
  2. Good question, difficult to decipher the website.
  3. The SuperSurf 999 I was using, I had to make sure I had more than 1000 peso load then text "supersurf999" to 8888 it worked for me.
  4. https://www.globe.com.ph/help/data/prepaid-promos/supersurf?jsid=1497786313842
  5. Oh ok, what is the limit then? I was informed it was unlimited. Supersurf 999 is the unlimited variant, sorry for the confusion.
  6. From the globe webpage Buy load conveniently You can reload your Prepaid Home WiFi by purchasing any existing Globe GoSURF variant at a Globe Prepaid reloading station near you.
  7. According to the website you can reload any variant of GoSurf which would mean you can pay 999 peso per month for unlimited (there maybe some kind of "fair play" clause in there somewhere) I've used the GoSurf 999 for a couple of years now without any issues.
  8. http://dalagueteceburealestate.com/beach-resort-alcoy-cebu-for-sale/ If it's the same place I can't open the link in the OP. According to the link 25,000,000 peso.
  9. Any reason they shouldn't? From what I read above posted by Shadow, he is a convicted criminal.
  10. Whilst he kills innocent people. No, the only suitable punishment is death.
  11. Sorry, but unfortunately nobody at the house. Another member "TheWhiteKnight" may be able to run the tests for you. I have sent him a message so hopefully he can help.
  12. I use Comclark/ Converge I have a fibre connection. Their office is next door to Johnny's Supermarket on MacArthur Hwy. Can't tell you the actual speed I get, it does everything I need it to do, they have various packages available. A painless experience to get connected, take your passport and proof of the address (I used my rental agreement) from memory from sign up to surfing it was about 2 days. Forgot to add, I live a couple of blocks off Fields Ave behind Barrettos Deli. I know fibre is also available in Pulu Amsic subdivision, when you apply the customer service rep can tell you immediately what's available in your area. Just checked a bill, I pay 3100 pesos per month for internet and 126 crap TV channels, this is my plan FTTX 2500 + DIGITAL INTERNATIONAL
  13. Doesn't appear to be so straight forward. http://www.thanhniennews.com/politics/foreigners-can-own-homes-in-vietnam-starting-next-july-34527.html Vietnam will allow foreigners to buy houses for the first time with one simple requirement, they must enter Vietnam legally. They will be able to own the property for a maximum of 50 years and enjoy the same rights to lease, transfer or sell the property as Vietnamese citizens. The new law will extend the rules that currently apply to apartments, according to the amended Housing Law which will take effect on July 1, 2015. The law passed with 77.46 percent approval in the National Assembly during a Tuesday session. Foreign entities who have invested in housing projects in Vietnam, foreign-invested enterprises; branch and representative offices of foreign companies in Vietnam, foreign investment funds; and foreign bank branches will all be entitled to purchase real estate under the law. According to the amended law, foreign individuals and entities will only be allowed to buy, receive, or inherit apartments and houses in commercial projects and not in areas that limit or ban foreigners. They are able to buy a maximum of 30 percent of apartments in a block and 250 houses in a given ward. Individual foreigners may extend their home ownership after 50 years, according to their need. The government provide further details about the extension process in the future.

Foreign property owners will also be subject to the nation's property taxes. Foreign entities can already buy property to house their employees, but they are not able to lease or use it toward any other purpose. According to Phan Trung Ly, chairman of the National Assembly’s Law Committee, the legislature passed over proposals to tighten home ownership restrictions for foreigners. A majority of voting lawmakers said the open policy will attract more foreign investment without jeopardizing national security. A total of 372 deputies voted for the articles related to foreign home ownership in Vietnam, while 28 other voted against it. Four others abstained from voting.
  14. People demand cheaper airline tickets, the airlines met the demands, so who is really to blame? I visited the economy section once, it was like stepping into a ghetto. Stop complaining and pay the extra for business class or better still first class.
  15. This is very true, you have nothing to lose by making an offer.
