  2. What dating site is the best for Philippines? Only know .......... and ........ One of these is over-moderated and infamous for block male accounts, just for the heck of it. Another site clearly lack moderation, have strict limitations on # of messages one can send, and now force members (block their acc without reason) within short time free membership, to become a paid member, and it ain't cheap either. So to the few single men out there, what dating site do you prefer? Excluded the old and worn out, you dont need a dating site. Feet on the ground and all that. This is for t

  4. Had a good rest staying on the beach for 2000php a night. Places for as cheap as 400 are available. My brother in law did most of the cooking so we saved quite a bit that way. Weather changed sooner than expected with last storm that went through so we cut the trip short.
  5. Just came across this article, thought your guys might find it of interest. Every self-respecting driver in the Philippines must know the basic traffic rules by heart. This includes common infractions like overspeeding, violating the number coding scheme, driving without a license, and beating the red light. However, the country isn’t short of odd and obscure laws either. Here are a few traffic violations, as stated on the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s (MMDA) site, that we bet you didn’t even know existed—and how much the fines are. 1. Dirty or uncared for plates Plate numb

Even Cambodia and Vietnam are over twice as fast. And the Philippines ranked 176th out of 202 countries worldwide when it came to internet download speeds.

  8. A collection of tips for living in The Philippines from Reddit. If you're a Globe postpaid subscriber and have been paying upwards of 2500 on your monthly bill for the past year or more, you've probably been upgraded to Globe Blue. You can call customer service to confirm. Once verified, you can start using 199 (instead of their usual CSR number) for any customer service concerns. This is a streamlined version of their IVR. Just two steps and you're routed straight to a Platinum CSR. Buy your rice in a neighbouring canderia before going to your fast food place of choice. Beer befo

  10. I thought this was an interesting review of traveling to Camiguin Island by the Philippine Star columnist Bobit Avila. Some of you may have been there and could add to this yourself or would like to go there . http://www.philstar.com/opinion/2015/03/12/1432668/visiting-mystical-island-camiguin

  12. The country training people to leave By Stephen SackurBBC, Philippines The Philippines has one of the fastest growing economies in Asia - but there aren't enough jobs to go around. So every year the government teaches thousands of people the skills they need to get jobs abroad. When I arrive at the state-run Housemaids Academy in Manila morning exercises are well underway. A squad of uniformed cleaners is poking feather dusters into all corners of the sitting room. In the kitchen trainee cooks are immersed in the finer points of salad preparation. The academy has the feel of a soap-
  13. Survey Results: Western Expats in the Phillippines This article is copyright 2014 by Robert Howard but may be used freely on any website. Thanks to everyone who did the survey. Results below are from 134 respondents. Most migration between the West and the developing world flows in one direction. People in developing nations seek better economic and educational opportunities, safer and less polluted environments, and less corruption. But in the last few decades, Westerners increasingly have been moving to developing nations, perhaps to one often visited as a touris
  14. I can’t Bilibid! PrisonA building in which people are legally held as a punishment for crimes they have committed. New bilibid prison maximum-security compound, Muntinlupa Luxurious jail cell of convicted Drug Lords each has it’s own taste and style one with sauna, other with Jacuzzi the other one really rocks with a music studio. Found during the raid in these air-conditioned rooms are expensive watches, wine, sex doll, shabu or crystal meth, million of peso and two thousand US dollar, wide screen LED TVs, projectors, Wi-Fi internet, game console and entertainment appliance.
  15. For those who end up with GFs who have not finished college or have not even started college, it may sometimes be a good idea not to send them to a 4 year college, period. The reason is, they won't necessarily make more money once they have that BA/BS degree. Plus, it can drag for so long that you will be supporting her for 5-6 years. And you may even lose interest in the process. There are vocational courses,( google TESDA for one) but which one do you choose? Caregiver? Cellphone repair? Housekeeping? I've sent some GFs and some female friends/god sisters to study those and they still c

  18. MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines on Thursday put on display dozens of ancient maps which officials said showed that China's territorial claims over the South China Sea did not include a disputed shoal at the centre of an acrimonious standoff. The Philippines is in dispute with China over parts of the South China Sea, including the Scarborough Shoal, an area believed to be rich in oil and natural gas as well as fisheries resources. China seized control of the shoal in June 2012 and has prevented Philippine fishermen from getting close to the rocky outcrop, a rich fishing ground. Philipp
  19. The inflation rate reached 4.5 percent in May this year, which was considered the highest in the last two years. For someone who earns a fixed income, this means a plunge in buying power. If you think that your budgeting concern ends with the inflation rate, you have to think again. The next time you receive utility bills, try to look at your electricity bill. We won’t be surprised if you cringe at your electricity bill every month. Though we have LPG, fuel and even charcoal as other sources of domestic energy, electricity remains the most viable. In the Philippines, electricity is the most c
  20. I wonder if there is anyone else who has an original song they would like to share? This song is one I wrote about my Filipina wife and many expats who have been or are in the same situation. "BIG BROWN EYES" https://soundcloud.com/roy-ross-music/big-brown-eyes-original-roy-ross

  22. The Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) will decommission a Pohang-class corvette (PCC) warship by yearend and donate it to the Philippine Navy, the Department of Foreign Affairs said. According to the DFA, the announcement of the donation was made during a recent meeting between South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwang-jin and Defense Secretary Voltaire T. Gazmin at the Ministry of National Defense in Seoul’s Yonsan-gu. It comes at a time when the Philippines is embroiled in a heated territorial dispute with China over reefs, shoals, and islets in the West Philippine Sea. This follows t
  23. I know, I know, I have put up several in the short time I have been a member here and I will put up more unless I get an overwhelming number of complaints....Do you know why?

  25. I wrote this song by accident in Feb. 2014 (this year). I was just sitting at the computer with my recorder on messing around. My wife was outside as were neighbors and they were shouting across the street, children running and shouting, roosters crowing and even my dog "Lucky" (short for 'Lucky Me') was barking for me to come outside....I just started playing and putting the words together from what I was hearing around me....and this song is what I came up with. NO REWRITES...you hear it just as I was singing it for the first time. https://soundcloud.com/roy-ross-music/in-the-philippi
