  1. Seriously? I guess we disagree
  2. I've been there 1 time. Great service and food, but portions are VERY small. They recommend ordering several entrees which makes it quite an expensive restaurant for Cebu.
  3. I wasn't happy with the food selection at Landers the 1st time I went in May but stopped in this week on Tuesday around 1PM. Selections are better and the overall experience was much better. Even the pizza was decent. 1 issue is there are so many employees that they often get in the way. Not as bad as True Value in Ayala but annoying after the 10th time they get in your way and smile and say good afternoon!
  4. Rustan's Ayala has them but fewer than what they used to carry. They had fresh cheese-stuffed olives. I see there's a Rustan's in Manila.
  5. S&R

    I've had the same over-charging issues the last 3 visits to S&R and the credit is so laborious, 1 time I had them deliver my credit in cash to my condo after they couldn't figure it out, manually with a calculator in 30 minutes. It's really insulting - they know what they're doing and that most people don't notice the errors. What they should do, but never will, is to put the responsibility on themselves and if a customer finds an error, the customer gets the 1st item free. This would cause them to be more accurate because it would cost, them not to be. Right now, there is zero incentive to change - except for customer satisfaction reasons and we all know how meaningless THAT is here! So, onto Landers I went. I was unimpressed with them. Veggies, fruit, lunch meat, cereal, frozen food were all much more limited. The beef I bought was more than S&R and wasn't good. But, it is closer to my home and less crowded on a Friday afternoon. Since I paid the P800 for the membership, I will go back 1 more time in a few months to see if they improve. I enjoyed going to S&R but their arrogance just soured me. Will I go back? I don't know. I'm finding less reason to do that.
  6. I believe about zero of any results of supposed surveys on-line anymore. Would love to see the statistics!
  7. These PC people are ridiculous. They act so surprised that this has happened and do their best to grandstand to get viability, but they call it "support." Has someone called it an OUTRAGE yet??? As they allow gays in the military, I'm sure they expect absolutely NO discrimination or teasing by the straight side of the military..... and will be "shocked & dismayed" when it happens.
  8. Here are some numbers for you: 350,000 new cars & trucks are sold and put on the road in this country every year. Used to be 250,000 just a few years ago. The gov't is "hoping" for 500,000 to bolster the economy. Oh, and let's not forget 500,000 new motorcycles each year. So...... I wonder why the traffic seems to be getting worse everyday.... the leaders are doing so well! Wouldn't ya think SOMEONE would question all of this..... Guess not - simply say "so traffic" and go on your way.
  9. Won't THIS add to the many reasons the Philippines is a great country for foreign investment (says the government)!
  10. HUH??? Please explain how you disagree. They are writing in English and the fact that it's a second language has nothing to do with what detail they put into the story.
  11. Love all the detail in the news article!!! Always seems like a 10 year old wrote them. Who KNOWS what happened???
  12. The board was formed in 2011(???) yet the current federal administration wants another study and the mayor is against it - why would that be??? This is exactly what's needed here, it's just sad no one cares enough to implement anything except repaving a few roads before election time. The leaders would rather continue with their childish arguments and the locals are so used to all of this it doesn't faze them.
  13. For you SRRV holders, you are allowed to use the VIP line at Philippine immigration if one is available. It's nice to get to use a shorter line once in a while!
  14. Thanks for the feedback! I thought I tried best foods but maybe not.
  15. Geeez, I'll look again - thanks for the feedback guys! I used to like Miracle whip but it's made differently here and grosses me out! ;-)
