  1. Today
  2. I bought my 2000w dry-type transformer in the lower-level part of the old Metro department store at Ayala (which burned down). However, I'm sure you can find them at other Metro Department stores, at Ace Hardware stores or at True Value Hardware stores.

    Welcome to Masbate eh?

    Never having seen it before I really don’t know. Time, perhaps, will tell.

    Anyone Coming To Cebu From The USA?

    Still need this anytime from the middle of April to May would be good. just need one envelope brought. Thanks in advance.
  7. Be careful when you buy a transformer advertised 2000 watt may be 2000 watt surge, if you read the specs, it may be only 1000 watt continuous
  8. $79 usd on Amazon. I bought my 2000 watt transformer in the mall for 4200 pesos .

    Welcome to Masbate eh?

    It wasn't the boat owned by the Mining company (Canadian owned) near Aroroy that transports personnel to and from the mine to Masbate city was it?
  10. I laid out the extension leads and plugged in freinds disk grinder not knowing it was 110. Wow that was the most powerful grinder I ever used. Nearly took off out of my hands!
  11. I think the funniest side of this is, people bring 110 items here, have to buy and use a transformer. Yet if you look at where the item was made it will be somewhere in Asia, most likely China.
  12. Cheap 2000 watt converters/transformers are P18,600 on Lazada. Best bring one of those with you too
  13. Used ours yesterday with a corn fed bird. Even the breast is juicy and tender. Partner took a pic to remind her of of temperature test level. Not one gram of monosodium glutamate added to ours. Fine as it is

    California?
  16. I learned my lesson with amazon Prime...
  17. My blender plug is permanently taped to the transformer. My coffee grinder plug is permanently taped to another transformer.
  18. There's a Wine and Seafood Festival here this weekend at the local winery. I was trying to decide which day to go, based on the bands that would be performing that day. They are all pretty much from the local area. This is one of the performers. I'm certainly no Blues expert, but I like this song. Okay so the music video is a bit lame, but he probably shot it on a shoestring budget.

  20. Examples: Is it the millennial drought, cyclical (har) or some other factor at work here?
  21. Shifting Demographics Here in the Pacific NW there seems to be a lot of "old new stock" motorcycles around in dealer showrooms. According to the salesdorks in at least some cases the bikes are arriving in the stores NOW as 2015-2017 models, apparently they have been warehoused since new. This has happened before (I bought my '87 KX-500 as old new stock in 1989) but it seems different now in scope. Maybe it's not, could be just me. I'm curious if this is more widespread than just here, and if anyone else suspects it's a demographic shift behind a lot of it?

  23. If it is something that you and only you will use, you may be ok. However, if anyone else will use it, it is only a matter of time until poof, it is a goner. After being carefully instructed and nodding and repeating "yes, 110 volts", the very next day my FIL filed down the tab on the plug of my dremel tool (it was too wide to fit the receptacle) so he could plug it into 220. I sent over no less than a dozen 110 volt appliances/tools. Sooner or later ALL got plugged into 220, and one accidentally by me!

    Transfer comparison. USD-PHP

    I used Xoom my first 4 years here, and always happy with how fast and easy it is. A friend told me to try Remitly recently, and tried it twice now in last month. Same service, same quick results. Seems I get a slightly better rate with Remitly, Not a lot more, but a little. What I liked most about it, was with Remitly, there is an instant withdraw on my U.S. bank account to track, where with Xoom, it can take 2 days for bank account to reflect transaction. Lol...maybe it is my OCD, but I feel better tracking it all in real time.

      Hi buddy. Long time no speak. I still have the contact details of a lass we nicknamed "Superwoman". Her place is on Via Rama. Go down V.Rama towards South Road and shortly before the junction of these two roads you will see a Shell gas station on your right. Immediately opposite is a side street with an emission test place on the corner. This is her place. Name of Mellie. Very efficient and will do everything for you. Registered many big bikes and cars with her. Still use her even though I live in Valencia now. Her number is 09235863888. Cheers - Barry

      Hi Paul.  Why would messages on Angie be blocked? I know you're not in your former capacity, but I find it annoying that I can't express myself about my friend.  Hope you're well.
