  1. Hello, I want to purchase a condo unit in Cebu or Dumagerte and I have got a few questions: 1. What is the best way to buy a condo unit: through a real estate agent or directly from a developer? 2. Which developer would you recommend most as a reliable developer? 3. Foreigners can buy up to 40% of condominium units. How can I know if I am within the 40% when buying a second-hand or new-built condo unit? 4. What is the average rental yield? Is it a good investment, in your opinion, at the moment? 5. Is it difficult to find tenants? 6. Is it difficult to
  2. Actually I experienced that the fastest way to get to a place is using Waze. It works unbelievable accurate. It gives me most of the time the travel time within 5min accuaracy, no matter what the traffic situation is. It can estimate the traffic better than anything else I have experienced. On top of that it you learn new streets and shortcuts. It guides you through routes around the traffic better than the best driver in Cebu could do (of course it "knows" the traffic situation and finds the fastest route).
  3. Just read that next year between 9pm and 5am all Mybus rides in Cebu will be free. At 25php, if I remember right, its cheap enough already. But handy I suppose if you arrive / are up and about in that timeframe.
  4. Hi Folks, Just read about this on Sugbo.ph 25PHP fare with 30 minutes trip time from Mactan Wharf to Cebu pier 3 by boat. Would be really handy way to dodge the traffic if it runs well. (I searched for 'Topline' priot to posting - please delete if this has been covered already mods, cheers...) Best Regards, Geo...
  5. Hi, Does anyone living in Lapu-Lapu City have any idea how to go about paying a fine? Got stopped and given a ticket for stupidly not wearing a helmet on a short trip to Maccies. However can't for the life of me work out where I pay! Been to a load of locations and not even the police station knew lol, just about to give up, only had it 3 days. Thanks in advance! Charles
  6. We ordered Spaghetti (red sauce) with meatball and Spaghetti Carbonara (sp?), with a glass of house red and white, garlic bread, water, and they had their own hand made hot sauce with chiles and tomato spices. Parm cheese in a shaker jar. 600+ pesos and the staff were super professional and friendly I recommend this place.
  7. I have done a budget for general cost of living in Cebu in preparation for retirement. I have left out an entertainment budget as it is too complex and each person is different. My subtotal for pretty essential living is 65,000 in a fairly decent condo near city. My actual budget will be a little over php100,000 per month.  Can those who have been there a while look over my figures and give feedback on my costs. Thanks in advance.  Budget.pdf

    Beehive Removal

    do you know anyone who can remove bees with a beehive on a tree here in Cebu? if possible just transfer the bees and not using a pesticide?
  9. If you are looking for a beautiful and convenient getaway close to Cebu check out Nalusuan Island. Good food, nice stilt rooms with the sounds of water and sea breeze to lull you to sleep. Mid day has a steady stream of island hoppers but mornings and afternoons you can have the place to yourself. Water is packed with a variety of fish if you like to snorkel. Check it out

    This Forum is Changing

    As you have seen, there are changes in full effect here on the forum. We will use this thread as a conduit to keep you, our members informed. We just opened the bonnet/hood a week ago here and oh shit , it turns out we had to drop the transmission, pull the engine, and what a mess she was. Sorry for the bright lights on the new forum theme guys. I hear you. I will fix it for you. If you like dark, we will give you dark. If you like bright, you can have bright. Just give us a little time here. Our pit crew is literally working around the clock here. We have accomplished a lo
  11. I am currently living in The Philippines and so know most general things ... but I want to relocate to Cebu City (or very near) with my wife and High School age child ... I would appreciate any advice on where best to live to be within easy reach of Cebu City at a reasonable cost. I want to rent (I currently pay P15000 for a 3 bed house but am prepared for the fact I might have to pay more) and would either like to be within walking distance of the City Centre (I saw online a property in Malobo for about P30,000 - which seems reasonable) or outside the city but on a bus route. I have read that
  12. Around 20 houses were gutted by fire at Barangay Carreta, Cebu City, on Monday afternoon, November 28. The Cebu City fire department received the alarm at 3:55 p.m., and declared the fire under control at 4:10 p.m. MORE
  13. Does anyone know what hotel this is? Thanks, hope I dont get crucified for this video. I am just curious. Thanks.
  14. Cebu Daily News - August 04, 2016 By: Jose Santino S. Bunachita, Nestle L. Semilla, Rosemarie H. Borromeo, Victor Anthony V. Silva The Sinulog Festival in January next year will not be the same. No more youth dance parade and contest to open the festivity. No more fireworks display to cap the weeklong festival. The culminating day’s grand parade and mardi gras, the festival’s highlight that has been drawing thousands of spectators from all over the world, will most likely end at 4:30 p.m. instead of the usual 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. as a crowd control measure and to put a lid on late-night r

    Cost of living

    One can surely understand why filipinas want foreigners as mates. My fiance works for Sykes there, she grosses 15000\mo. Net pay is just 13000. Her room rent that she shares is 3000 and with utilities being shared, a total of 1000+. She is not a real spender and spends around 200-300 peso per meal in a day, usually 2-3 meals x7 days etc. Of course, sending 2500-3000 to parents every two weeks acerbates the whole issue. She will sacrifice in order to send money to them, which I get to a point, but still, she needs to survive. I do help out and have come to the conclusion that an average person
  16. July 1st - Metro Cebu. Most images are near Ayala. But not to fear, this only happens when it rains a bit hard..
  17. EIGHT vehicles got tangled in a vehicular accident at Marcelo Fernan Bridge downhill at the Mandaue City side at 3 pm Saturday. Glenn Antigua, head of the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (Team), said a cargo truck owned by Vic Enterprises that came from Lapu-Lapu City and sped downhill towards UN Avenue in Mandaue City allegedly lost its brakes and rammed into a taxi, two other small trucks and three taxis. One of the taxis rammed into an opposite lane and hit a motorcycle. The vehicles blocked the lane going to Mandaue City and the opposite lane, stalling traffic. The build up of ve

    First Time Visit to Cebu

    In this summer, I am planning to visit the beautiful island of Cebu and the capital of Philippines as well with my family. My kids and grandmother are very excited about this trip because they always saw the panoramas of island in pictures and now, the dream is going to be a reality. My husband has martyred in a military operation at Afghanistan so I am the single parent and take care of all expenses of my family as well. However, I will also have to look at my budget and need your advice regarding following things: Comfortable, hygienic and economical hotels of Cebu Economical restaurants
  19. I loved Cebu for its diversity, city life and within a few hours, beautiful countryside. The main attractions for sure are: Whale watching at Oslob, Tumalog Falls near Oslob, Dalaquete beach, Osmena Peak (3000 ft), Aguinid Falls with its five levels that you climb up with a guide (the best of all waterfalls), Driving on the otherside of the island was awesomely beautiful and no traffic with ocean on one side and jungle on the other. Kawasan Falls is the second best falls IMO. A great place to hang and the hike to it is stunningly tropical. Lambug Beach is the the island's Boracay-like beach an
