  1. Either that was staged or that is the worlds slowest elevator. Funny anyway!
  2. It's still a good deal. My wife went into the hospital in Ormoc Leyte for 3 days for pneumonia, in a ward. The wards in Ormoc Doctors Hospital are nothing like the one in the pc above. This was a couple of years ago, but as I recall the total bill was around P30K. I only ended up paying approx. P7K using PhilHealth. It doesn't take much to run up more than P17K in hospital bills.
  3. Yeah, except it used to be (still is for a while, I think?) P2400, or about $48/year. Still relatively cheap, but not like it was.
  4. I have read the same things you mention, but I must say in my case it wasn't true. I was taking various benzodiazapines pretty regularly for several years. I wasn't taking high dosages but on a daily basis. I never experienced side effects or any addictive tendencies, probably because I wasn't increasing the dosage. I think some people tend to get addicted easily but I never developed a habit for anything, not even for cigarettes, when I smoked many years ago. Just lucky I guess.
  5. I go to Dr. Johnny Kenneth Rojas at Ormoc Doctors Hospital. He is ok, helped me get over a serious heart problem, although he is not a heart doctor. I wouldn't go to him for brain surgery, but he's good for most things you might experience here.
  6. Doctor in Ormoc prescribed some for me, but only 10 at a time. Must have been real because they came from the hospital pharmacy, but had very little effect. I think I'm immune now!
  7. I used to get DOT 4 brake fluid at Ace Hardware in SM mall. It is hard to find.
  8. He would have to be nuts to put his fate in the hands of the Philippine justice system.
  9. Curious cat!

  11. The Dalai Lama is cool, no doubt!
  12. I think I heard the same thing from my Grandfather about 60 years ago.
  13. You're not very good looking, so it must be the Corvette?
  14. We also stayed at Adelfa and it is nice too and very close to the hospital, but I prefer ABC because the immediate area has more to offer in terms of amenities and convenience. Can't go wrong either way though.
  15. I recommend the ABC Hotel & Homes on Ramos St. near to Fuente Circle. I paid P1500 2 months ago. Very new, nice modern clean rooms, convenient location. Staff is excellent, very helpful, if you need it. No restaurant in the hotel but it is surrounded by various types, as well as convenience stores, downstairs and within easy walking distance. Good wifi, rooms are small but big enough for a few days stay. https://www.google.com/search?q=abc+hotel+cebu&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=ubuntu&channel=fs
