How much does it cost to send a Filipina to college in Cebu?

I fully supported a Filipina last semester, paying 100% of her expenses, and I kept track of everything. Here are the actual numbers (as opposed to

Yeah...

 

That sounds about right... only diff between your numbers and the ones I have... is I make the kids get a job while at school... and the match what they bring in for 'additional / daily / extras / ( family )'...

 

That last bit seems to bring the 'extras' down... since they know there is a minimum amount they need to make and its not all a free ride... but then again, they also know I add whats saved back in for XMas etc. stuff for them and their family... ;-)

 

Still really cheap compared to e.g. trying to help someone in the US or Europe...

This is nice to know :)

But for us...that will take a while, our guy is not getting further then the playroom in Ayala.

But I have now a line what we will have to pay in the future ( + 40%) or something like that.

I just had my g/f check out the cost of courses in the different colleges in Cebu

 

an example of the differences

 

Hotel and Resturaunt management course at the San Carlos college PHP23,000

 

The same course at the University of Cebu PHP12,413..

 

Not sure why the difference, maybe one trains you for Mcdonalds

 

She also has to be of good moral character which I guess rules out a career in politics for her

 

Does anyone know if the colleges have dormitories on site or do you need to look elsewhere for accomadation?

There is none but there are a lot of boarding houses within walking distance surrounding most

universities/colleges.

I was about to ask same question though! LOL Paul, if you need a suga momma to pay for your education, well don't look at me, I got the coupon here though for free meals! LOL :biggrin_01:

 

But then I rather study in Manila than here in Cebu.

 

Dunno about the quality of education here but I met some college students/graduates from here they don't have any idea on the new advanced tech and the tuition fee here is expensive compare if you will attend a state university in Manila.

I know alot of people like that in the US :biggrin_01: . They have big degrees and they are the ones flipping burgers at McDonalds. And they don't even have a clue about stuff. It's a wonder they even graduated. I think some of it has to do with how much an individual applies themself during the education process. And some of it also does depend on the institution.

It's one of the problems in deciding where to send her. I don't want to pay the money and find out she is learning on windows 95. Nor do I want her to go to Manilla.

 

We shall see how the first semester goes

      I'm looking for a particular steel (might also come in aluminum) product but know that without a "sample" I'm going to be pretty much SOL finding it here without knowing the real name of it or at least having a picture.  So I think if I describe it here maybe someone will known the name or perhaps a brand name or something.   Here goes...  Take a piece of heavy gauge 1.25" square bar.  Remove about  a 3/4" wide strip from the middle of one side and curl the 2 cut edges back towards the opposite side.  Then down the opposite side put a line of say 3/8" holes all the way down.  Maybe every 5th hole is a double so it's like 3/8"X3/4" slot.  I thought this was called speed bar or rack bar or something like that but Google isn't helping.  What's it called?

      I finally had a chance to eat at Cru steakhouse in the Marriott Manila. I heard a few references from our friend @miles-high and thought I would check it out.  Sorry Miles, I was severely disappointed. The wine list was horrible, I mean it was dismal. Come on. They ran out of the best wine on the list after one bottle. I asked if there was a sommelier on staff and the manager came over and informed me they were about to re-do the wine list, "maybe in June or July". What a joke! The wine list was shit. This place is supposed to be "the best" so if you want to be the best then have something other than  a $25 Mondavi Cabernet on the list as a feature. Horrible wine list. I can buy better at Rustans. On this occasion it wasn't about cost, and well,  they couldn't deliver. We asked for a proprietor's list, and it didn't exist. In fact the 'manager' didn't even understand what a "proprietor's list " was. I had to explain it to her. How embarrassing for her, and Marriott.  Regardless it was horrible. I don't mind paying 4-5 or hey, lets get on it and spend 10 times retail for a really good bottle of wine. After all it is allegedly the best steak house in Manila. Well, not even close!  They tried selling me a $25 bottle of Robert Mondavi available in every Walgreens  for 15k PHP. What a load of shit. The best bottle for value  on the menu was an Aussie Shiraz and they only had one bottle available. OK so moving on past the wines, after all its a steakhouse, right? So what about the steaks? Sous vide for the steaks with reverse sear tastes different than a properly cooked steak. I was NOT impressed at all. This was probably the worst experience I've had at a signature Marriott restaurant anywhere in the world.  Avoid at all costs and save your pesos boys. That was a complete waste of my time and money. I could do better getting pissed up at home, with a few  run of the mill steaks from Kroger and about 30 minutes of my time in my outdoor kitchen.  What a huge disappointment. The staff were great but they can only do so much. I blame the food/bev manager at Marriott for this disaster.  Never again starts my thoughts on Cru Steakhouse Manila.
