      ''The gov't isn't going to come demanding VAT be charged on the original price whatever the reason for the discount.''    Just as well or they may cancel the SM 70% discount sales and my asawa will not be happy at all!!   i think the key is getting the seniors discount and NOT having a Government issued seniors card is the way to go.  That way you have not  broken the law by applying for and using a card you are not entitled to.
    • SkyMan
      I see no problem asking for a seniors discount.  As long as you don't ask for an SC discount or use the SC card.  I could ask for a blue eye discount or a shaved head discount or hangyo palihug.  If they give it they give it.  As for VAT, VAT is charged on the purchase price whatever that is.  If the seller is willing to accept a lower price the VAT is charged on that.  The gov't isn't going to come demanding VAT be charged on the original price whatever the reason for the discount.

      As you probably know many people have found that they were unable to delete their fb accounts.  They can deactivate them but not delete them . If you could remember just what you did you can probably make some money out of this !!

      Let me help you out here. In Davao the fine for jay walking is about 150 pesos - BUT- senior citizens are exempt from the law !!   See Terry - you were almost on topic !! hehe

      Went to log into FB this morning, and it said no such account. Tried all the post about it I could. No luck, so opened a new account, reloaded a lot of friends, and accessed the account thru one of my friends, so was able to get my pictures. it just sits there , waiting in vain for me to open it. Where do you report this to FB?
