    Ferry to Baybay?

    The Roble fast ferry did run. I hired Alphabet Ormoc rent a car to get from Baybay to MayLaka on Biliran. They wanted 3500 for a city car, which sounded too small, so I opted for 4000 for a Suzuki Ertiga. They were so-so: inaccessible seatbelts and the driver didn't come inside my hotel to get my bag. 4K pesos seems expensive, and maybe I should have asked around the van terminal in Baybay to see if we could hire something cheaper. There were lots of vans there that said a route on their side, but none said Biliran or Naval, near where we were headed. They offered 3.5K to get me to Tacloban after the weekend, from where I'll head to Manila and home, but I'll try one of the better reviewed/recommended on the forums Tacloban-based car services.

    Advice on leaving condo to a friend?

    This is done by several families we know. They buy a condo in Cebu and a relative lives in the place. The only issues are with the relative. If they decide to trash the place, or rent it by the hour, then they have that freedom. If your friend is trustworthy, should not be an issue.
  8. BTW, the banking system is overseen by a federal agency (BSP) that sets rules and various guidelines that the banks follow....while some banks interpret the same rules. For example a clerk opening your new account may tell you there are many hoops to jump through. If you speak with a bank manager, the hoops may disappear as they want your business. The clerk wants to keep their job. It is quite likely you’ll be expected to provide informations such as SSA tax number, source of income etc. The banks are required by the BSP to collect this as part of anti-money laundering rules. incedentally,, banks will accept overseas checks from your USA checking account, or third party such as from an insurance company etc. There is a time delay while the check clears as well as a fee. However, this is one way to plus up an account balance. Keep in mind the need to report if accounts exceeed $10000 only require the balance to be in excess for one moment.
  9. Until the Phils fixes its justice system it will never develop. This is just one of many atrocities over recent times that have never seen justice.

    Angkas - Bike Taxi In Cebu City

    IMHO waste of time, get a grab taxi and your life is not in danger for an extra 100P.
  13. I earned my money for index funds by bitcoin... But it does seem weird as an investment tool, since it's meant as a currency. More adoptions will not help the price, and all the recent rises seem like a few sellers manipulating market in order to sell (rise sharply then drop to lower than before)?

  15. Decades ago caught a night ferry from Cebu to Ormoc City, sleeping deck class. All the gangway doors were locked, and there was netting over the outside of the boat, which would have trapped anyone on the deck had the boat sunk. Thought that was the most dangerous boat I would ever travel upon, until a trip from Siargao Island to Surigao last year. Traveled in style, tourist class with air con. A crowded room in the lower deck, a narrow stairway to get there, and an escape exit via a single-file ladder. Cheap fare, though.

    Cleaning Up Manila Bay

    I keep hearing Manila Bay by the US Embassy is now clean. I can't wait to see this in person, It is usually a cesspool of trash. I usually spend about a week in Manila and stay right next to USEM at my favorite hotel RedPlanet Manila Bay which is about 800 yards from the USEM, I usually take a walk to Manila Bay to see all the trash and plastic bottles washed up on the shore. Glad to see they have finally decided to clean up Manila Bay

    Small engine parts/repair shop?

    just for some info about the primer bulb and what it does. It doesnt actually squirt fuel into the engine, what is does is prime the carb itself by filling the carbs small needle and seat area with fuel.
  19. ran across this bike in manila this week, cop said it was a 2005, 400cc
  20. The purple is one of the USA models...usually pretty accurate. I think the Red one...Europe...needs to stay out of the tropical storm business altogether! This doesn't look like a threat unless it loops 270 degrees and hit warm water again...that would take about a month.

      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.
