  1. Its a big shame to do this to a 69 year old man. Period.
  2. I fly regularly in to Manila and many times yellow taxis are not available.
  3. And what about satellite telephones, can they not trigger explosive devices.
  4. I have a account already more than one year with Coins.ph This account is verified with my scanned passport and a scanned credit card bill. Worked great until now. Suddenly my account is restricted until i upload a selfie holding my ID. Are you kidding me, i refuse to upload a selfie and holding my ID. It feels like a criminal holing his name placard, i will not do it. So no more Coins.ph for me. To much is to much.

  6. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/polish-man-won-t-leave-000000710.html A Polish man refuses to leave the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) clinic, where he has been staying since Monday, until his flight has been rebooked for next week. Tomasz Chalot Stanislaw, 41, said he arrived at the NAIA on Monday from Butuan City, where he had spent four months with his Filipina girlfriend. He said he hailed a taxi to bring him to a hotel where he could stay until it was time for his flight for Poland last night, but the driver sped away after he put his luggage in the trunk. Left with only his passport and no money, Stanislaw said he “roamed around NAIA Terminal 1 and 2 to find someone who can help me for my food. At night, I slept in the comfort room at the Terminal 1.” Stanislaw told The STAR that he went to Butuan to propose to his long-time girlfriend, whom he identified only as Monalisa. “I promised her that I would be back in a couple of months to prepare everything in Poland, as I planned to bring her there,” he said. Airport attendants found Stanislaw sleeping in the NAIA Terminal 1 restroom. They gave him biscuits and bottled water. They then brought him to the clinic after he complained of chills. Paz Santamaria, a nurse on duty at the clinic, said doctors who examined Stanislaw said he is in good condition and the chills may be an effect of a drug he had taken. Santamaria and other nurses tried to contact China Airlines to rebook Stanislaw’s flight, but the ticket indicated it could not be rebooked. “We are doing everything to help him get his flight back to Poland,” she said. Stanislaw, who has not contacted officials at Poland’s honorary consulate in Manila, complained that he could not take last night’s flight since “I can no longer lift my left leg.” He insisted that his flight be rescheduled to Dec. 14 or 15 but did not say why. Santamaria told The STAR Stanislaw was apparently making excuses to stay at the clinic until the airline approves his request for rebooking.
  7. http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/738853/enforcer-clearing-mabuhay-lanes-killed A Quezon City traffic enforcer was shot dead by a bank security officer as he was issuing a violation ticket during a Mabuhay Lanes clearing operation on West Avenue on Wednesday morning. Enrique Fresnido, 60, a member of the city’s Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS), was shot in the head by Alex Batacan, 39, officer in charge of security at BDO West Avenue-East Maya branch in Quezon City, around 7:30 a.m., a police report said. Fresnido was rushed to the Quezon City General Hospital where he was declared dead about three hours later. Batacan, on the other hand, was placed under arrest with a murder charge being prepared against him. The incident happened as enforcers of the DPOS, Highway Patrol Group and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority were clearing Mabuhay Lanes—designated alternate routes for motorists wanting to avoid heavy traffic on Edsa—of obstructions and parked vehicles as part of preparations for next week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. Some of the motorcycles belonged to the bank security guards and Batacan interfered, Roseller Arbolado, chief of the enforcement section under the DPOS traffic operation division, said. Instead of towing the motorcycles, Fresnido wrote a violation ticket as he and other enforcers were instructed to do whenever the owner of a vehicle was around, the victim’s colleagues said. Batacan, however, went inside the bank, returned with a gun and shot Fresnido. “We didn’t expect that he would do that over a violation ticket [with a fine of P350],” a traffic enforcer said of Batacan. The clearing of Mabuhay Lanes has been met with resistance by local leaders, particularly barangay officials who collect parking fees. With Ria Consuelo Mendoza

  11. http://globalnation.inquirer.net/127371/dead-belgian-found-with-gun-inside-crashed-car CEBU CITY, Philippines — A Belgian national is believed to have committed suicide after he was found in a vehicle that crashed into the railings of the national highway of Barangay Casay, Dalaguete town, some 85.1 kilometers south of here. Andre Josef Emiel Scheepmans, 54, a native of Leuven, Belgium, who lived in Barangay Maghaway, Talisay City, Cebu, was already dead when policemen arrived in the area past 6 p.m. Saturday night. Scheepmans was driving his silver Toyota Innova van (plate number YZW 449) from Oslob town and was heading home to Talisay City when his vehicle hit the railings about 5:30 p.m., said SPO3 Cleto Pia, Dalaguete police investigator. When the police arrived, Scheepmans was at the driver’s seat and was no longer responding. His right hand was still holding a .22-caliber pistol while his nose was bleeding. Since the doors at the front seats were locked, Dalaguete municipal health officer Jose Edgar Alonso had to enter through the door of the back seat, which was not locked. Pia said Alonso didn’t find any pulse when he examined the foreigner. Scheepmans had no visible wound except for a bleeding nose. But an empty shell and two live bullets were found inside the vehicle. The pistol was also loaded with seven bullets. Pia said they suspected that the foreigner may have put the gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger but the bullet was not able to exit his body. An autopsy would determine the cause of death, he added. PO2 Leon Gesim, Dalaguete desk officer, said they went to the area after receiving a report from another foreigner who called up the police station to inform them that his friend figured in an accident in Barangay Casay. The police failed to get the name of the foreigner but it indicated that Scheepmans was able to call a friend before he died. Inside the vehicle, the police found a summon issued by the officials of Barangay Maghaway against Scheepmans who was invited to attend the hearing on July 27 for a case of slight physical injury. The complainant was Analou Ayeng, believed to be his wife or live-in partner, indicating that the foreigner had family problems, said Pia. Pia said Ayeng arrived in Barangay Casay late Saturday night with their small daughter. Ayeng did not issue a statement, saying she was still emotional about what happened.
