I've used FedEx in the past and they've been reliable but they are expensive. I now use LBC when I need to send papers to the US. It takes 4-5 days to arrive and you can send up to 500g for about 1200p.

Whatever you do don't use the Philippine postal system to send anything important or valuable, I learned that the hardway. After my first time in Manila, I sent my new in-laws a gift box I had put together of clothes, candy and some jewelry. Two months later, the box arrived, taped over and virtually empty. True story.

I send a fairly large number of documents throughout the year to the US and other countries. I ship them through LBC or FedEx, always. I have yet to have a packet lost en route.

 

However, a fairly large number of packages shipped via PhilPost have been lost over the years.

I never thought of using LBC so I decided to give them a try...The price was 1260p for 1 document which seemed fair going to California..I wonder who's tracking software they purchased?? lol Thanks

A FedEx document pack to the US is about P2,000, if it contains items other than documents but is still very light (less than 1kg) its about P3,000.

I always have a hard time getting it right. Its either 2go or go2. I have used them to ship to Canada and USA. Takes around 3-4 days. They use DHL. It was the best priced out of the bunch out of around 10 documents, they have all arrived.

Is there an office for Fedex or LBC or any other courier service in Cebu?

 

I went to LBC in Fooda and they say to call the number and someone will come pick up the documents. I don't trust giving important papers to some guy on a trike and I prefer to drop off my envelope in person.

 

The docs need to go to Canada asap.

Everytime i use fedex it's door to door from cincinnati in 3 days. Just sending papers should be cheap. But to send a 10-20lb package cost me like 500$. I think there is a fedex store inside of SM in cebu city. Otherwise, you should be able to go direct to fedex @ the mactan international airport in the international business zone. I saw the fedex building when I was driving to Waterfront hotel mactan (the one at the airport).

      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.
