  1. I have a house here in Florida that I am thinking to rent it out to snow birds when we are going to stay in Philippines for those months. I don't have a semi-permanent house there yet, but when I do. I will just build a tiny home in Dalaguete that I can also rent it for vacationers/snow birds while we are in Clearwater. I do have a very trusted ex-sister in law and my nephew that can take care of it next to that tiny home. About the vehicle, it is my nephew that is driiving on it which he intends to make some money out it. He and I agreed that he will have a monthly payment of that vehicle to me and if I am in Philippines I can use it. I will surely not going to be driving in Cebu. He is the driver. This is both our wishes.
  2. before I forgot the internet connection is better than Cebu. I was using my pocket wifi and it works great there. Electricity is on 24 hours now.
  3. I have a property in Taytay Palawan about 5 hours by bus (airconditioned) from PP. It is about 1 1/2 from El Nido. I was lucky enough I bought that 2.6 hectares on 2005 and now they built a Port on that property. I've heard that Chinese, mayor and governor are already buying some of the properties in that area. I think the name is Roro Port in Sta. Cruz Bantulan Taytay Palawan. When I bought that place the road was rough and you can see monkeys going across the road, now it is a pave road. The Port should be open anytime soon. Taytay is big. There's waterfalls, a small grocery store, nice market. There's no pollution since there's not a lot of people live there yet. I've been hearing that they are building an airport also in that area called Sandoval Airport. There are couple of small Inns in the area. My friend has one that is not being advertise. It is just word of mouth. He doesn't even have a name on that place. When I was there, there was a young foreigner staying there for couple months or so. I think he is still there.
  4. Thank you all for the replies.
  5. Can anybody here tell me an affordabl/reliable car insurance. My nephew is going to have a 2017 Toyota Hiace. I am helping him to find a good insurance company. Hopefully there is one in Philippines. Thank you Lynette
  6. I will ask my nephew to ask the Baby (the owner) since I didn't pay the whole thing yet because of their inheritance tax (that is not paid yet). She is very nice by the way. My nephew is heading that way tomorrow.
  7. Samatm, What I heard the tram is supposed to be for vegetables from the other side of the mountain. My place is just below the market. It is cool maybe around 70 degrees farenheit on the middle of the day. I just bought that this past year. In fact, I didn't pay for the whole amount yet since the owner still have to pay the inheritance tax. I do have a nice view and cool climate. I will probably put a tiny homes there to rent it out there someday (if money permits). Hey, if you care sometimes stop by in one of my property (2 hectares) in Casay Dalaguete which is about 1.5 kilometer from the beach by the national hwy. If you want to go swimming and snorkeling. I have some snorkels and inflatables there. You guys can even sleep there if you don't mind sleeping (primitive way). It is still a nipa hut with a huge porch that my nephew added a year ago. I stay there a lot whenever I am in Cebu. It is besides the elementary school and Barangay Hall. That is the one I was thinking of putting a driving range and maybe putt putt golf (wishing). Still don't have a lot of cash and guts to start.. A used to have a hut inside the Dalaguete Beach Club but the typhoon damaged it. In fact, Paul stayed there before. It is on the top of the Cliff. I don't want to do anything on that property since I don't have a right of way. I don't know if the Beach Club can still let me in and out whenever I want someday. So right now I just go there if I want to go snorkeling if I am in town.
  8. That is a very expensive strawberry. I wish I have known this when I was there this past couple months. I do have a property in Ubo Dalaguete (by the tram line) not far from the market of mantalongon. I like Dalaguete area there are more things to do (beaches, spring, mountain climbing, and going to strawberry farm). The town also have a tennis courts by the water.
  9. Any of you been to the Strawberry Field in Dalaguete?
  10. Can somebody give me an information of insurance company (car/house) that any of you guys use? Also, any of you have a good experienced of toyota dealers in cebu? Thank you in advance Lynette
  11. According to my husband (HP certified tech) the advantage of buying the new one is that you have a toner comes with it (even it is just half full). Plus you have a one year warranty. The toner carthridges that you mentioned above is likely a reman. The failure rate is about 20% or higher.
  12. check "LIPAT BAHAY".
  13. He must be the husband of Mrs. Furbush that is buried here in the cemetery close to my house.
  14. I do have Last Will and Testament, Living Will, Health Care Surrogate, Durable Power of Attorney, etc. I am a worry wart, I hope this will be enough to cover if do have to go before my husband.
  15. My husband and I have Revocable Living Trust especially we still have a 16 year old daughter. She will be taking care by the Estate as we stated. We don't have a lot, but plenty enough. My daughter's college is paid off. I did a Fl. Prepaid. She didn't know that is paid off. I want her to work hard to get a scholarship. She is likely to get one since she is a very good tennis player and softball player besides she has A's and B in academic. My husband should be okay since we have 2 paid off houses here in Florida and 1 that is about to be paid off. We set up a POD (PAID ON DEATH) on our bank accounts . My understanding in case one of us die before the other, he/she can have the access on the account to pay the bills immediately. Doesn't have to wait for the Estate to be settle. I have a friend that when her husband died she could not get any money from their joint account to pay the bills. According to her it is because it says "so and so". The word "and" requires both signatures. It should say I guess "And/Or".
