  1. Are you really banned or it's just a pic you put yourself??

  2. No books????

    You're, of course, quite correct. Forgive me....... I was temporarily in another Universe!
  3. No books????

    Last trip to London, I toured a few charity shops, and got some excellent Atlas books for pennies on the pound. Geography appears not to be on any curriculum here in the Philippines! My kids at private schools here usually manage to get all their books at the start of each school year, though sometimes stocks are short and there are delays. I don't really understand why demand isn't being supplied, it is sort of business 101. We just have to do our best.
  4. Oil tankers are bigger no? Anyway, it's good that Britain has a big war ship, because as we all know - size matters!
  5. Drone or airship?

    Just spotted this near Ayala Mall.
  6. Bill H, I made that point a few months ago, about the short film in the cinemas here, explaining that every day a filipino soldier is killed in combat, and can you help their children finish their education. But no mention of the killers being muslim. I was then basically shut down by our resident google fiend, the man who knows everything. It's called a no-win situation. The Mindanao terrorists are muslim. We all know that. But if even one terrorist isn't a muslim, the PC Brigade moves against you. And you are condemned for being anti-Islamic.
  7. Sheesh, and to think, during those years I was getting laid. Yeah, you won that one James.
  8. I discovered quite early on, in my travels, that it's actually quite important to respect the locals. I'm not the one struggling with local administration. Think about it. I understand that might be an issue with you.
  9. Because, lets face it, all immigration offices in SE Asia, and the rest of the World, cater for foreigners who turn up with the bare minimum, because the foreigners have zero respect for the local administration. Is that how it works on your planet?
  10. I can't imagine.
  11. I've been to Toledo. Stayed at the Ranch resort. A weekend was more than enough. Toledo is more like the kind of place you transit through on the way to somewhere interesting.
  12. That is what my (local) friends call the place. Mind you I am fairly certain that Taxi drivers know it's where the Immigration is. I always go on my motorbike, and parking is never a problem. It does help if you get there early though.
  13. Yet another fecking Spiderman movie coming up. I wonder if the villain will be a devious homosexual Englishman. Hollywood needs to upgrade its baddies. The Daniel Craig James Bond has been forced to deal with closeted gay psychos since he got his licence to thrill.
  14. internet in the province

    I got it. It is surprising though, in a Country where nothing, NOTHING, ever exceeds the absolute minimum standards. Obviously I am here for the year 'round Summer.
  15. Call it what you want, it's a huge improvement on the old office, where parking was very difficult, the dress code was in place (quite rightly in my view) and not a pleasant experience at all. You newer guys don't know you are born! (Cue the old boys telling everyone how great Cebu was in the long distant past when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth).
