  1. Thank you..I will buy 5 of them on my next trip to Cebu!
  2. Thats what I did..One extension cord that goes under my house and through a wooden floor into living room..Problem I have,if I want to use the Generator in the garden to run a jackhammer etc its a real pain in the ass as the plug that goes into the genset itself is some type of special plug.. Ive asked in the hardware stores here if they sell them but they all say "No"... Anyone know where a genset plug can be purchased??
  3. Sorry Kenny..In my haste,I forgot that your OP was about an LTE line.. Our business line is DSL.. It may be worth inquiring about a LTE business line though..If you do ask..Let us know what they say..Cheers.
  4. IMO he can only go after the Lim`s because of Duterte and this war on drugs.. Had this happened during the Aquino presidency,a quick 100k would have made it all go away. Duterte and his cohorts are the ultimate back up for any Mayor..especially the Mayor of Cebu BTW..Toshi.. I found the story from your link in seconds..That`s why I posted the video that I found there..

  6. So if that happened,would Interpol take his name off the hot list? Could the UK fix that for him?
  7. Kenny.. If you have a business permit you can get better data packages...Ask Globe for the business broadband account deals.. I think our new cap is 150 Gigs per day.
  8. This Brit plasterer would probably disagree with that statement!! lol..
  9. You know what? I think you are right.. I uni bonded a wall today and did a 3:1 mix..Troweled it on off of my flash looking aluminium hawk and the lot just fell off the wall !! It`s the damned sand I tell ya!!
  10. For years Ive been watching Filipino`s stucco (as you Americans say) or render as we brits say) Hollow block walls and concrete poured columns.. It seems to take them forever! The job we are doing at the moment has about 24 posts on each floor..Filipinos want to get a labourer too "tic tic" the smooth post surface with a concrete nail in a piece of plastic water pipe and a hammer..It takes ages and its noisy..tic tic,tic tic all fecking day long!! Then the mason comes along and puts up a piece of nylon from the top to bottom on all four corners and then flicks the 2:1 mix on with a trowel...flick flick,flick flick...Takes fecking ages!! If I rolled the posts with a coat of PVA and splatter coated the posts with a watered down mix,surely that would provide a decent enough key to prevent them tic ticking all day long right?? Also..Why can`t they render corners or walls with a metal float trowel and hawk like this?? So fecking quick and easy!!
  11. I never smoke where people eat... If they want to eat where people smoke and drink (a bar) then that`s their choice... No local expat bars here with A/C but if there were,I`d be much happier sitting outside. Wala problema. Given the choice,I`m easy to please.
  12. Yes..Most smokers like to go out,drink and smoke..Ban them from smoking and they will congregate and socialize within private property if they want to have a few beers with friends.. If non smoking characters want to join the party,they are most welcome as long as they don`t even think about bitching on about second hand smoke etc.. None of my non smoking friends ever do that BTW...Great characters all !!
