  1. Yep I'm for Maxi-Cool too .. finally sorted an ongoing prob with my old Pajero a/c . Just a couple of hundred metres past Pacific Mall , on the left driving into the city .. lots of taxis in the front. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  2. In Australia, and I'm sure many other countries .. it's illegal to smoke in your personal vehicle " if you are accompanied by a child under the age of 16 yrs " Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  3. Couple of points .. 1 . If you live so far from the BI , why did you not avail yourself of at least 2 x 6 month extensions in the 3 year period ? 2. This will not be the end of your trips to BI , you will also have to attend to get an Exit Clearance ..I think up to a week prior to departure date, but I'm sure someone will confirm that for you ..
  4. Bathrooms , kitchens , window cleaning ... stuff guys mostly hate doing. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  5. Probably not for OP , but for guys on Mactan .. Scape Skydeck .. on the roof of Azon Residences Condo. Fantastic night time views across the city and the channel. Cuisine that I think they describe as Italian,/Spanish fusion. Located just off the exit of the new bridge on the right. Parking available . Apologies for my inability to post links, but there are reviews and menus on all the usual internet spots. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  6. Don't forget ...PPE ! I know you already have breathing apparatus for your city strolls .. Gonna need . Gloves . Eye protection . Ear muffs. In your already limited space Condo .. where did u plan to store your tools on the 364 days and 22hours a year when not in use ? In Australia, and probably many other countries, for a one-off job like this, you would just go to the local Equipment Hire depot, and get the appropriate tool for the day. It's admirable that you want to do this stuff yourself. Good luck with it . Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  7. My reading of the OP was that the Leyte family were invited to Cebu ..for the week there .. And I presumed only the Aussies were going to Boracay Of course I could be wrong . My advice to the OP ..cancel Cebu,/ ,Boracay .. take the Aussie contingent to Bali ..have a ball ! Send photos to Samar / Leyte. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  8. On the supermarket shelf. It's likely the price will tell the truth .. Huge variance in some of the prices. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  9. If you are in Toledo , go and have a chat to Dodong at IBM Motors .. he will likely point you in the right direction .. Take the side street Shell Gas station, from the main road in from Sangi. ( just b4 Caesars,). Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  10. Michael at Outsiders built storage units around the car park of MBs Garden Inn. They were fully booked within days of completion. Last time I spoke to him he was looking for more space to build more on-site. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  11. They sell them at Cafe d France at Marina Mall , also .. Sent from my SM-T535 using Tapatalk
  12. You haven't mentioned location ? If u would consider Mactan , then Keiner Hills Condo on Matumbo Road has the entire ground floor , street facing units allocated to Commercial only. It's a pretty old and not greatly maintained complex, and houses the businesses of SDR apartments, and Lancaster Hotel as well as private owners and renters. The up side is that they currently concreting the road thru to the Airport road, and that directly opposite the first of 5 buildings of the Amani Grand Resort condos is about to be occupied.

  13. You are on Mactan, so it's probably the Mactan Island Mall , where the BI satellite office is ..they do extensions and ACR cards .. There is a supermarket in the basement level .. not sure of its branding. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
  14. Yes I use it occasionally .. bit of a pain to setup, had to scan in a copy of my Oz I'D etc .. but once approved easy to use . I'm in Thailand right now , but have used it to send 2 smallish amounts to Philippines from my Australian bank, over Xmas .. 3000p and 3400p ,( AUD $ 85 - 95 ) both transactions cost AUD $3.99 in fees . Can be collected in cash instaneously at remitters like MLHULLIER, Cebuana, Palawan etc Or can be deposited into a Metrobank account, plus a number of other options . They texted the pickup details direct to the receiver, and also texted me in Thailand when the funds were collected. Sent from my SM-T535 using Tapatalk
