  1. Doesn't that Skywalker chap drive a 'theoretical' Ferrari?
  2. So, does anyone know if there's a website for bookings and schedules?
  3. Don't stalk me, bro!

  4. Hopefully you'll give us an update on his status and the procedure (and costs involved) when this case reaches resolution.
  5. Well, for starters the only BI office that will handle an overstay of this length is the main office in Intramuros. The letter Monsoon mentions will be mandatory. You can calculate the lapsed visa fees and the penalty but they have discretion to levy additional fines on top of that. Therefore it's hard to say how much cash he'll need except more than he thinks. Possible blacklisting/deportation are also discretionary and therefore it's hard to speculate whether they'll apply in his case.
  6. If that sign was in the US it would be perforated with bullet holes, lol.
  7. Get with the program. When are you Aussies going to build a wall? It's the new thing.
  8. There's some thought this might strengthen from a tropical depression to a tropical storm. So far, the rains in Caraga have been unexpectedly very limited which is a blessing considering the ongoing flooding and displacement of people here.
  9. "In its latest shellfish bulletin dated February 2, BFAR said the following are still positive for paralytic shellfish poison that is beyond the regulatory limit: Coastal waters of Daram Island, Irong-Irong and Cambatutay Bays in Western Samar Coastal waters of Leyte Coastal waters of Biliran Province Coastal waters of Gigantes Islands in Carles, Iloilo Coastal waters of Dauis and Tagbilaran City in Bohol Balite Bay in Davao Oriental Puerto Princesa Bay in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan “All types of shellfish and Acetes sp. of alamang gathered from the area shown above are not safe for human consumption,” said the BFAR. It said fish, squids, shrimps and crabs are safe for human consumption “provided that they are fresh and washed thoroughly, and internal organs such as gills and intestines are removed before cooking.” Complete BFAR Bulletin (in English): sb5.pdf
  10. I can only imagine the whale sharks felt the same way.
  11. It's 50k php now.
  12. I got a few projector rigs A high quality job for a 300-inch outdoor screen which can be a hassle to set up. And yes the replacement bulbs run a few hundred bucks but you do get 2-3,000 hours of use. AVR back-up is essential or the bulbs overheat and blow up during a sudden brown-out. Ouch. But for simplity's sake we often just show kids movies indoors on a cheap Unic UC40 projector (projection distance 1.2-3.8 meters, 800 lumens, 38-130 inch projection size) on a white living room wall. They run around 2-3,000 pesos. It takes a micro sd card which is handy. Lazada has 'em.
  13. Some more historical data on (the lack of) February typhoons in the Western Pacific:
