Where to get things in Cebu?

11 posts in this topic

I'm kinda lost as what to do. I'm at Days Inn for the next 5 days and looked online for rentals. Unfurnished seems the best for the budget.

 

So where can I get some good deals on things. Airconditioner, Refrigerator, Pillowtop Mattress, Furniture, Household stuff.

 

What has good warranties with some decent prices?

Look in cebuclassifieds and what you can't find, make a list and ask anyone in the area for what they call a "Surplus" store if you want used items.

Asia Home Appliances. Opon Market. Take a taxi/tricycle.jeepney from or near where you are and go left at the main drag, continuing for about 3 to 4k's I guess. The transport will need to turn right before you get there and go around the back of the whole shootin match. When the vehicle is allowed a left turn, you'll travel a short distance (passing the Firestation on the right) to the main carriageway again where you'll turn left and go back towards the way you came. It's about 150 metres after that left turn, on your right. Ask for a discount, you will always get one, from my experience and they often have specials where goods are substantially reduced.

 

Or catch a taxi to Gaisano Grand Mall (Mactan) and another branch is on the 2nd floor

Sorry to put any damper at all on your info mate, but it's been my experience that this is a very bad country to buy 2nd hand goods. They ask ridiculous and high prices and the goods are often well used. (appliances especially). I'm someone, that when living in Oz all my life, I usually went to 'Op Shops' (charity based shops selling used) and bought a lot of stuff from them coz good quality is often available. I gave up here and personally found it is better value and safer to simply buy new. Only my opinion of course.

I have a friend who has an LG air conditioner for only P7,000 and it is 2 years old.

He rarely used it because he hates dry sinuses and that is the reason he is selling it as well.

It looks new and the last time I saw him use it, it did a great job of cooling.

True, I guess the only way to buy used is if you know the seller personally.

I have not bought used items here and probably am not a good gauge, I just presumed, which is the wrong way to go.

Barack's Trading (BT Surplus) in front of the Waterfront Hotel (in Lahug) on Archbishop Reyes Ave. has a pretty good selection of secondhand Japanese stuff. We bought a lot there. Very cool place.

If you're still looking in August I may have a bunch of stuff to unload myself.

      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.
