  1. So.. Theft = No Bail But.. Frustrated Homicide with an Illegal Firearm = p144k bail if you're a rich local.
  2. They had p2000 of Starbucks delivered for lunch in a recent news story that I read...
  3. Skimming usually involves stealing the pin through either a keypad overlay that looks the same as the real one or a hidden camera.
  4. True that they don't give a lot of fries with the burgers. I believe they sell a bigger side of fries separately. Their default burger patties are quarter pound/4oz with a 6oz option and a double burger option for either size. Speaking of Whopper, the new Burger King on Mango in the old 7/11 spot looks like it should be opening soon.
  5. Big Tom's and FatCow are a couple of the best burger places that I have found in Cebu.
  6. North reclamation or south reclamation?
  7. Aguinid Falls in Samboan has a sign that says something about it not being discrimination because they are not charging foreigners double, just giving Filipinos a 50% discount. lol.
  8. Last time I visited Kawasan they were even allowing habal-habals to drive people to the short distance to the first falls and back at p50 per head each direction.
  9. My 16 Mbps plan is 1,999 pesos/month with cable TV service included. Much better deal.
  10. I have had the 16mbps plan for about a month with no issues. PLDT would not even add a new DSL or Fiber connection here due to the area being "full".
  11. Taxi drivers here seem more like a "random people with a car" to me. When I request Uber I see the drivers name, picture, license plate number, and average rating from previous passengers all in the app. I can report any problem with the driver within the app and drivers with bad reports will not be allowed to continue working. The drivers have to apply and show drivers license, NBI clearance, PNP clearence, ETC, before being approved to drive.
  12. Osmeña said the Magallanes Street BDO branch only reported gross sales of only P400,057.22 for 2016 taxes... P33,338 or $672 gross per month. They should at least try to make it a little more believable if cheating on taxes.
  13. Looks like a Studio not a 2br and near SM not Ramos.
  14. Zilden is a local generic, 50mg less than 80p each.
