    Philippines vs Thailand

    Which one do you like the best and not want to spoil? Recommend the other one!
  3. Ok, so there's a slow ferry directly from Cebu (near Mactan) to Talibon, while the fast boats seem to go elsewhere: Getafe or Tubigon. The only company I could find that provides the Cebu-Talibon trip is VG shipping, and I couldn't find any info online on their schedules. From what I've understood so far, I guess I may leave one or more days' buffer between both the incoming and departing flights so as to not unduly depend on the scheduling of the ferries to either make an outgoing flight, or to get to a hotel on time. Most of my questions have been answered. However, if anyone has info on the scheduling of the slow ferry from Cebu to Talibon, that would be great. Also, guidance regarding the best way to arrange a trip would help. That is, call once I arrive, email in advance, etc. Thanks to the board for all the info thus far.

    Blocked by Ad Blocker Blocker

    Just to add to this conundrum... until yesterday I hadn't accessed these forums for weeks because I was getting the ad-blocker pop-up despite having disabled the ad-blocker on my browser. However, after raising it yesterday on the LINC Facebook group, I learned a workaround that works for me (the ESC key). I use Opera browser which was created out of Chromium. Google Chrome, which others on this thread are having problems with, is also an offspring of Chromium. So the problem seems to be related to the Chromium/Opera/Chrome family. Chromium and Opera are open source (ie, the programming code can be examined); Chrome, being a Google 'product' is not; however they all share the same common ancestry. Unfortunately I do not have the expertise to be able to resolve this but I thought it worth posting just in case there is someone on here who might have?

    Ferry to Baybay?

    Just realised you wanted help with tourist versus cabin versus business class. I have never travelled on the Roble Ship to Baybay but I have travelled Roble to Ormoc. For that ship, - economy is outside but under cover. They pull down canvas at night to protect you. The bunks are put together in groups of 4 double bunks. So you will be playing footsies with some one you don't know and sleeping beside some one you don't know. The mattresses are vinyl covered with inbuilt pillow. You may want to sleep with your head on your luggage to make sure everything is there in the morning. They will give you a sheet to cover you while you travel. - Tourist is a very similar system except that it is in the aircon. - cabin means you will be sharing with 3,4,5 or more others. My last cabin with Roble was 2 double bunks with a table and a chair in the room. So no playing footsie or sleeping on the hair of some unknown female like I did last month. There may or may not be a private bathroom in the cabin. For tourist versus business class on a fast ferry. I only tried business class one time on Supercat. the seats were basically the same seats and they gave me a free snack which I couldn't eat. So i never bothered again.

    Ferry to Baybay?

    Schedule.ph is correct on this occasion but i wouldn't trust it for anything. They have been out of date for years. But I checked a few other routes to see if they have suddenly updated everything and I have to say it is waaay better than what it was just a few months ago but still missing route options. Since Roble is a 9pm departure, it will not be a quicker option unless you are happy to wait until 9pm. Even then, the total trip time will probably be about the same. as the fast ferry bus option. The fast ferry options will get you there way quicker. same day though. The first fast ferry of the day from pier 1 to Ormoc is 5.15 am with supercat followed by about 9 other trips across the day from pier 1 with Oceanjet and Supoercat. You could also pop into pier 4 for more options with Weesam but I don't personally like the weesam boat. I was in Ormoc today and took the opportunity to find out what has happened to the bus and jeepney terminal. Some one has taken a perfect system and rooted it. But the bus for Baybay is still in the bus and jeeoney terminal near the pier. Just get off the fast ferry in Ormoc, cross the road, go inside the bus and jeepney terminal and get on the next bus to Baybay. From memory, it is only a 50 kilometre trip from Ormoc to baybay. If you want to get there quicker than a bus, use a private van. I have a van contact in Ormoc if you would like to ask him for a quote.
  10. No, there is no smoke test station here on Camotes. I know there used to be one as a few years ago I saw the old signs on a building wall in the port area. However, where they are building the new LTO office there is also a smoke test station being installed next door. This is also in the port area of Poro exactly the same location as the previous test station.

    Condo on Poro?

    Yes good luck, "being" and "was" are two different words.
  12. way too expensive for me.. I've used Co2 and pump but none like this most of the pellets guns top speeds was 600 to 700fps so the 1035fps is rockin that pellet.
  13. Here in civilization i was in and out with plastic in 1 hour, 15 minutes of which was spent going to a store in the mall to buy a pen (forgot to bring one). Medical stuff involved exchanging a few jokes and verifying that i need glasses, done on paper which is again sop until further notice. Still in a bit of shock over the whole experience.
  14. Fred was this post necessary ... c'mon bro , lets stop knocking the shit out of each other over trivial shit ....life is too short.
  15. But you can buy the mega250 and some of the other plans directly from Lazada so you don't need to bother loading and then txting which is nice.
  16. You buy load from lazada to any phone that you want, you just type in the number then UCT600 to 9999 from the phone that you just loaded or whatever promo that you want
  17. BUSTED !!! . Smart, Globe implement 1-year expiry period for prepaid load. SMART COMMUNICATIONS, Inc. and Globe Telecom, Inc. have extended the validity ofprepaid cellular credits or “load” below P300 to one year. ... Globe, likewise, said all prepaid load, including those below P300, will expire after one year.Jul 6, 2018
  18. I like the 5%. p950 for p1K load. But when I buy 1K from the Smart Dashboard I get 250 allnet txts and a one year exp. That's like a 25% plus. Lazada doesn't mention free txts or the exp. I would think they would show the free txts as a selling point if they had it. Have you received any free txts when you used them? I do note the MEGA250 also gets the 5% discount so it's 237.50 and I can buy it straight to my wife's phone so no need to pass all the load first. A further savings. Looks good and would be a deal if we needed more voice than the mega250 has. Lazada doesn't list any of the UCT plans nor does the Smart Dashboard. But I imagine they still can be obtained through a txt.
  19. Mega250 still works for me today, maybe the block you because you always use naughty websites lol

    Condo on Poro?

    Well, it was 4 years ago that I went there and met John, and looked at the project. Dude flew in from Manila to show me around it all. Nice guy. Very nice guy. My gut feeling was that it was not a scam...great location and setting...but it was simply a pipedream. Dude believed so much in it and was so passionate about the project, that I felt he was blinded that for out in the middle of nowhere north Poro, he could ever get enough investors to do it. But, even after I left, he had my contact info, and never gave me any pressure at all. I kind of felt sad that he had such a cool dream, but it was not going to happen.

      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.

      Hi ShyMan
      I paid 95,000 to Immigration and 20,000 for airfares to Manila including accommodation Medical test.  Now I think they are asking 250K to 300K and that was 2 years ago.
      To renew the Visa I paid 6,500 and 310 pesos per year.   Its cheap for me back then as I am not married.........my partner here is a Administrative Officer/Bureau of Immigration Liaison Officer she was the one to go to Cebu as I gave her A special power of Attorney.
