  1. Paul's recomendation, incredible. Say I go buy it...after that I am helpless,. Who would be reliable to hook it up, buy parts needed, and do it to a safe standard? Cebu area. All the how to videos in the world doesn't do it for me. Thanks.
  2. PLDT FIBR. (Cebu) Excellent when it works. And literally everyone will likely say no internet will work to any respectable standard here. When it works it is a vast improvement over what was available even a few years ago. But seriously blowing smoke if anybody says any internet is great here. When it works I can stream and download HD movies. Rates vary but it is expensive. P2K +++ not unusual. Best of terribly limited choices, for me.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/nangka.house All images on FB are also here. Renovations and improvements continue. Upgraded electrical, custom cabinets ( truly decent quality), really cool hand made outside furniture by master worker. I assume the three new pics will post here. Thanks guys.
  4. The balance of everything you say is true but the girls take risks too. Their are countermeasures they have to be concerned with. They can wind up in jail not you. They do have the upper hand but it is far from one sided and guaranteed. That may temper the frequencey of the scams. The unknown it could turn on them.
  5. One retired police detective told me what to tell a girl that calls the police falsely- that will likely shut her scam down instantly. The didn't want sex part doesn't help him, imo. Better to say he offered money out of kindness since he is privileged compared to her. Better then volunteering a non-credible sounding denial.
  6. You spin the wheel when you pick one...les jeux sont faits.
  7. As of now March 2017 you will be asked for three 2X2's... they have such a love affair with bureaucracy. Just hand them unattached. The affidavit instructions you are asking about they don't expect it from you. You probably will never be asked for copies of any docs or asked to show ACR card. Only PP. Total fee: P500 Very professional and on top of things at J Mall. Source: My visit within last week. Best wishes.
  8. I have noted obligation to the "patron" still sometimes carries over to a foreigner. I'm assuming the level and extent of it may not be as strong. The nice ones really try hard, work hard and know they owe it, imo. I guess the interpersonalizing of the loan is the real danger because then it is the "culture". Very true but also very convenient here in 2017.
  9. Our credit line is zero. Word gets around. Of course, nothing is absolute. In my only case of significant lending in 5 years I gave P5K to our handyman who is a spectacular worker and all around good guy. I never met better. No care if I ever see it again. We had relatives go one worse and move out leaving bills. A large degree of these people feel that after a certain amount of time it all resets. They also are grand masters at blame shifting and getting upset when you are firm about repayment. Very poor with boundries! And for the effete who need to comment at perceived bashing, feck you. Rather be around Filipino's anytime. Only observing traits.
  10. Been reading Lee's condo related posts for years. Probably 100+. Never detected a drop of B.S. My house is for sale here, too so I can't buy his. All I can say is if you want a place don't blow an opportunity. Straight shooter. If mine sold I'd drag the cash over to him. A+ deal.
  11. Last month nearby resident -with no running water in house -got a gift of P1400 and proceeded to take family to Greenwich Pizza. And another had a lechon first birthday party, same week child needs emergency hospitalization and they had no money to admit. Can't make this stuff up.
  12. In support of your observations I have seen broken plastic lawn chairs shoved in between the open spaces of the exterior walls. I think it would be considered urban art in the wealthy west only it is what is holding up the walls here. Stone cold poverty complete with six children.
  13. There's a lawful way around the proof of life. Although things change with large government buracracy, seems to work great. PM if interested. Decided not to broadcast it here. It's lawful. No monkey business.
