My experience is that to the average lady around here, gold is rainy day savings. “Proper” gold that is. Do not buy 10 or 14 carat gold in the US because it won’t be looked on as “real”.
Several years ago my partner bought an inexpensive set of couples rings. I wear mine as a wedding band and I value it because she bought it (and I definitely did not provide the cash!)
Take a look at the rings of the other ladies in her family. If they’re all wearing 1M peso rings, you’ve got a Davaoeno sized problem. Otherwise, buy what you can afford but do buy “proper” gold.
I don’t know what it is about my civic. It has very bright LED DRLs at the front and a fairly large array of LED brake lights. I have been rear-ended at least 4 times (motorcycles and tricycles) 2 of those times I had to brake fairly suddenly (but I wouldn’t rate them as emergency stops).
The local drivers/riders a) don’t look far enough down the road, b) drive too close to other vehicles and c) do stupid stuff.
Around here, it is also quite likely that they have no registration, no license and no insurance.
In 2 of the events I stopped and spoke to the other driver. Both were apologetic. (The other 2 events I didn’t notice until later and there was no indication of anyone else saying anything at the time!)
i have no doubt that a collision involving injury or death would be a very different ball game - and logic is unlikely to apply.
You would think that motorcyclists would know they are likely to be injured when in a collision. But that’s the 4th thing they don’t seem to have - a sense of self-preservation.
I have both Masbate and Mobo police hotlines on my phone.
It also helps that I am a fairly good auto detailer!
You're guilty of killing someone no matter what the circumstances and it's been that way a very long time, I don't see this changing especially when people hang on the roads and I was warned about this my first time stationed in Subic 1984 it was part of the indoctrination and the main reason I no longer drive anything here, I'll let public transportation do all the worrying.
