    Forming a partnership?

    I did not form a partnership when I opened a bakery. One reason was to avoid issues with USA taxation. The taxes paid were all paid to the BIR using the Filipino ownership. Just passing this along as a heads up regarding the consideration of tax liabilities to the USA.
  3. Problem is most examples are anecdotal and statistics can be manipulated. I look at the overall justice system. I don’t think it is even questioned the justice system is screwed. Courts, Law Enforcement, etc... My vote is overall unsafe. 10% less safe or 10% more safe doesn’t help when the entire system is a basket case.
  4. Toss out some random curiosities: One payment and everything is approved like one official told me in another office. We can expedite with a package deal. One price. (Fees plus xxxxx php). What if you quit an approved profession? Can’t danger be related to personal circumstances unrelated to profession? Why not either most people allowed or most people not allowed a permit? At least that speaks to a clear ideology about permits, no?

    Globe problems?

    Cable installer just arrived - said he tried yesterday - never called to left us know Edited pic - for those of us too old to bend head too far to side
  8. Yesterday
  9. We've all been scammed or didn't do due diligence before purchasing - Car starter Power Bank for me - luckily only lost P100 for shipping Only criticism is - in this day and age Google is definitely your friend.
  10. P1,299 total for 4 - set menu A or B for all 4 - family style - we picked B - you get everything listed for each option Her sister and BIL don't go out often so that made the 4 Due to rain we ate in main dinning room Menu A - small bun w/ butter - laksa soup - rice (2 ) - curry veggies (2) - beef rendang , chicken hainanese, squid sambal, chocolate cake, 1 glass tea () B - bun w/butter, veggie soup - rice (2)- sambal kang kong veggies (2)- chicken curry - beef caldereta - pork charsiu - Mango flan - 1 glass tea Service - outstanding - from headwaiter to busboys The head waiter apologized for not explaining how they've structured the promo yesterday when I made reservations - added the chicken from A I drink a lot of tea when out to eat, Lex does not have unli tea option (which I always look for - see my Seafood Island post) ) but HW had a picture of ice water placed near me - drank all of it (6 glasses) - would have been P600 extra? We ate at 5 - only ones there - room stuffy - they turned on potable AC and aimed at out table I finished my soup first - HW asked if I'd like to have entrees served now or wait - said wait - fantastic that he asked Entrees served a few minutes after last bowl removed - same with desert Dinner was over 1 1/2 hours Food was good and decent sized portions - pork was the best - not as good as Tata's - she uses the spices I brought back last time - we struggled to finish - less the extra chicken would have been perfect P200 tip brought total to P1,500

    TV Shows/Series

    Just noticed Season 7 started up about a month ago.
  12. I always carried about 30000 peso in and out of Philippines back when it was 10K limit, never had an issue. I would have no issue toting more than 50K peso now of day, but the issue is putting the money in your wallet you get 50k peso and you can't close you wallet. Raising the limit to 50k was a good choice and makes a lot more sense.

    Oak Island (money pit) update

    I was at the beach one day and this old guy ( I'm 71 so when I say old!) comes down the beach with a metal detector so I tossed some coins in the sand just to see the look on his face. He turned about a foot before he got to them ruining my enjoyment. If I owned Oak island or had some commercial interest in it, I can promise they would be finding little chunks of gold and old coins, broken old spoons etc all over the place!

    Game Of Thrones

    Some people were disappointed by the way "The Sopranos" ended as well. I guess for some people, they just aren't happy with the ending unless it comes out the way they predicted it would. Personally, I liked the way GOT ended, and I enjoyed season 8 as much as (if not more than) any of the other seasons. I also enjoyed the way the story ended in the final episode. It left a lot of people trying to figure out what happened, which is a good thing. There was a lot of depth to the story and lots of twists and turns in the GOT plot. I had no emotional attachment to any of the characters in GOT, and I was willing to just let the storytellers tell the story. It was a great story. I also though "The Sopranos" ended in an innovative flash that left a lot of fans wondering what the Hell just happened. How brilliant was that?

      A friend of mine, for reasons that elude me, has decided to form a partnership and open a bar/resto. He is American married to a Filipina, his partner is European, and not married to a girlfriend. I understand that the partnership and business cannot be in their names, but could be put in the wife/gf names. They went to Dumaguete DTI to register the business name, and were told they had to go to Cebu to do it. They asked my wife to help them facilitate this, but it has been many years since we have been into this type of situation, so she is at a loss, and I am not far behind.  Has anyone done something like this recently? Words of advice? Comments, positive or negative are welcome.
