  5. Gov’t to issue COVID-19 vaccine passports, says DOH Since most of the discussion was in tagalog, I did not get the full story. My guess is that it will be mandatory in time as more and more of the population get vaccinated. What will they do to people who do not want to be vaccinated?

    Miscellaneous Humor

    After being married for 49 years, a wife asked her husband to describe her. He looked at her for a while, then said, "You're an alphabet wife ...... A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K." She asks ... "What the hell does that mean?" He said, “Adorable, Beautiful, Cute, Delightful, Elegant, Foxy, Gorgeous, and Hot". She smiled happily and said ..."Oh, that's so lovely - but what about I, J, K?" He said, "I'm Just Kidding!" The swelling in his eye is going down and the doctor is fairly optimistic about saving his testicles.

  11. So, the balikbayan box that I sent October 15, 2020 using Will Xpress has arrived at my in-laws in Cebu City on January 7, 2021. No problems and arrived intact with nothing missing.

  14. Galvez said Pfizer vaccines might arrive in the country by Feb. 20. About 50,000 Sinovac vaccines will also be deployed as early as February, he added, while AstraZeneca and Novavax vaccines may arrive in March and April. "And also the Moderna vaccine may come in May," he added. Galvez said some 2.5 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines procured by the private sector may also arrive by May. "But the majority of the seven vaccine portfolio will come during the third quarter, early July and August," he added. Galvez said the country is now in the preparation phase before

    Tourist Visa

    Damn.. Hope that is temporary. Was planning to drive in (3 hours each way) to Mactan BI office next month (February) to get 6 month extension for myself and my old (84) friend.
  16. I am late with this comment, but for future buyers, it might be interesting to know how to find out how efficient your ref is The less energy it needs to keep the inside cold, the better it is. One of the most important thing to notice is how efficient is the insulation between inside and outside of the ref/freezer. The less isolation, the more energy the electric engine(s) are using to keep temperature down inside. And the more energy used, the more electricity spend and the more heat is going to the room. As a result of this, for every kWh you spend cooling your ref/freezer, y

    American Pickers, Mike and Frank

    I like American Pickers and do watch it. If you pay attention so much of it is fake. Hey Mike, before my father died he left his bike out behind the barn. Lets take a look, it is wooded behind the barn and mike picks the bike up. There are no leaves on it, no dirt, no roots holding it down. Mike says wow, this is a 1945 brand X model XX. Yah I think dad left it here about 1955. Come on, been laying there 50 years, no dirt, no leaves, not stuck in the ground. Good condition, looks like it might have just come out of a shed?? But like the Masked Marvel and Hulk Hogan, m
  18. If you do decide to go ahead against advice here (lol) then the first move is to the municipal hall engineering dept. Negotiate ONE PRICE with the head Municipal engineer for the whole plan including all required signatures for building permit. Usually we pay half upfront and half on receiving signed permit. You might be able to negotiate the price down a little if you choose one of their hundreds of existing stock house plans stored in the engineers drawer! That`s the easy bit done at least! The rest can be a slippery slope especially if you are not around 24/7.

  24. Australia has announced twenty upcoming repatriation fights for its citizens. No indication yet which countries will be involved but they did fly repatrition flights outta d'Phils last year so might be a chance again. Stranded Australians get 20 new repatriation flights after Emirates pulls out of Australia The federal government will arrange for a further 20 international repatriation flights to bring stranded Australians home, following a decision by Emirates to suspend all flights to and from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The announcement follows the national cabinet's deci

      Dutch, Thanks mate, appreciated.  Those timelines are crazy for the countries shown, I think the UK at 72 hours from departure is tight enough.
    • Dutch
      For the UK it seems okay, you must have a test taken 3 days before boarding your flight (https://www.emirates.com/nl/english/help/covid-19/travel-requirements-by-destination) Backed up by: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-testing-for-people-travelling-to-england   Netherlands it has to be 72 hours prior to arrival, denied entry if no valid test is presented. Germany it's 48 hours prior to boarding. Denmark is even worse, the test must not be older than 24 hours prior to boarding.
    • Edd
      Dutch, Not doubting your word but do you have a link to that?  I have to travel to the UK in a few weeks time and I was under the impression that it was 72 hours from test to boarding the plane. Sadly, I cant find anything official to confirm either way. Very tight timeline, not going to be easy whatever it is, lol.

      Hi, Jim this is Lynette.  I just realize that you live in Tisa, Labangon.  I have a property there and very helpful nephew name Junie (09321037886 ) who has a car in Lower South Hills area.  If you need any help let me call him.  I already talk to him.  He knows a place where you can buy fresh produce (Carbon price) near Labangon.
