  1. Good income producing job that pedicab driving. Can afford to rent a room, feed a family and use shabu. Must have had a sideline job.
  2. Police busted a big shabu laboratory at the foothills of Mt. Arayat in Barangay Lacquios in Arayat town in Pampanga, the second to be discovered since Sept. 7 when an underground shabu laboratory was found in nearby Magalang town. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — A team from the Arayat municipal government stumbled upon a big shabu laboratory while conducting fire safety and sanitary inspections on Thursday (Sept. 22), Mayor Emmanuel Bonifacio Alejandrino said. Members of the Bureau of Fire Protection and the municipal hall were surprised to find a clandestine laboratory at what should have been a piggery and corn crusher, a report Alejandrino gave to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency stated. The laboratory in Barangay Lacquios at the foothills of Mt. Arayat has been shut down by Pampanga policemen. ADVERTISEMENT “It’s the biggest facility to be found so far, with big equipment. This is not a kitchen-type of laboratory,” said Senior Supt. Rodolfo Recomono, provincial police director. Lacquios is about five kilometers from Barangay Balitucan in Magalang town where PDEA and the police discovered a piggery farm concealing an underground shabu laboratory on Sept. 7. Seven Chinese nationals were arrested there. The facility at Lacquios was a large warehouse surrounded by trees and shrubs near the Cong Dadong Dam. This was the second shabu-making factory found in Pampanga. Three others have been found in Angeles City since March. Recomono said police have been trying to determine any connection between the Balitucan and Lacquios facilities. Workers at the site fled and are being tracked down by policemen. http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/818008/arayat-shabu-lab-shut-down-by-pampanga-cops
  3. That's a part of the game too buddy. Just like when you pay for something to be done but they fuck it up...you have to pay again for then to do it again.
  4. It would also appear pretty obvious that any PI administrator is renumerated for their "political appointments" being able to "cash-in. It is the way everything is done here... from the very bottom to the very top. Everything. It's none of my business, and as long as I know what the rules are I can play any game.
  5. The bribe money hadn't cleared the bank before then. There are 2 scenarios, innocent or guilty. Either way, it cost a lot.
  6. Just read the first few lines Donk. If that's not enough of an indicator of how much you don't know about China, do some research. For example: Most of the newer upmarket buses here are made by wholly Chinese design and manufacture. The automotive industry in China has been the largest in the world measured by automobile unit production since 2008.[1][2][3] Since 2009 annual production of automobiles in China exceeds that of the European Union or that of the United States and Japan combined. As well as joint ventures with multinational makers (with well-established brands) there are several indigenous makers and brands (which may not have the popularity of the former) . These include: Beijing Automotive Group, Brilliance Automotive, BYD,Dongfeng Motor, FAW Group, SAIC Motor, Chang'an (Chana), Geely, Chery,Jianghuai (JAC), Great Wall, and Guangzhou Automobile Group. While most of the cars manufactured in China are sold within China, exports reached 814,300 units in 2011.[4] China's home market provides its automakers a solid base and Chinese economic planners hope to build globally competitive auto companies.[5][6] China's automobile industry had mainly Soviet origins (plants and licensed auto design were founded in 1950s with the help of USSR) and had small volume for the first 30 years of the republic, not exceeding 100-200 thousands per year. Since the early 1990s It has developed rapidly. China's annual automobile production capacity first exceeded one million in 1992. By 2000, China was producing over two million vehicles. After China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001, the development of the automobile market accelerated further. Between 2002 and 2007, China's national automobile market grew by an average 21 percent, or one million vehicles year-on-year.[7] In 2009, China produced 13.79 million automobiles, of which 8 million were passenger cars and 3.41 million were commercial vehicles and surpassed the United States as the world's largest automobile producer by volume. In 2010, both sales and production topped 18 million units, with 13.76 million passenger cars delivered, in each case the largest by any nation in history.[8] In 2014, total vehicles production in China reached 23.720 million, accounting for 26% of global automotive production.[9]
  7. I've got bad news for you buddy. Contrary to what many of your ilk believe, Chinese manufacture, research, technology and military strength are WAY beyond what you think it is, or would prefer not to know is. I'm not a China over the US kind of guy, but i'm not an ostrich either. Nike and Apple couldn't compete if not for Chinese manufacturing. I know you hate this but US products could not compete in the world market without it and all you'd have left is weapons manufacture and US car manufacturing that is not an export item. The times are a changing.
  8. It looks to me that Dirty has realised the south China sea is far more important to the US than it REALLY is to them and is going to play the highest bidder game. The smarter ones are really good at shit like this. Maybe he's not that smart but has decided to side with China. Who knows and it's almost impossible to tell what a Filipino is thinking. Coz they probably aren't.
  9. “welcome gift”—P50 million—to an incoming customs official. WTF was she bringing in?
  10. It appears the call of martial law looms more possible/probable almost on a daily basis and it also looks more and more like that was the plan from the beginning for the dirty one. No real surprise there considering the astounding rise to power and the machinations he appears to be formulating. His moves seem well orchestrated to that end. Is he that smart? During the 9 year period of Marcos imposed martial law, the peso was the most stable it has been in the last 50 years by a long shot so that is not a harbinger of favourable forex rates for the home-funded among us. Except for my superannuation, which got it's arse severely kicked around 2008/9, my money has been in pesos since it was 44P/1AUD, so exchange rates have meant nothing to me. When I first visited it was 18P and I thought it was a bargain at the time, and it was. I'm unsure of how this would be for me but i'm leaning toward the "not too bad/probably no worse-off/possibly better" end of the spectrum. As far as the PI is concerned, I feel it would be a good thing for them to run their own race for a bit and grow from either the success or failure that the 21st century imposes on them. This is not a race/culture that plays well with others at the best of times, maybe it's a good time for all to let them fuck up without a net. Maybe it would teach them some fucking manners. Nah just joking... that will NEVER happen.
  11. Saw a bike getting a new plate fitted at a dealer here yesterday. Bike is 8 months old. So plates are out there.
  12. It's a tough choice to make for a culture that has always sucked to death every single opportunity that ever came to them and rarely make an intelligent, informed decision. They are unworldly primitives who make life-changing decisions based on no rational thought whatsoever and most often on face. I am big on face myself, but mine is based on integrity... theirs on the illusion of it. That being said, there is no other race who is more proficient at fooling their far more worldly, knowledgeable and educated quarry. They don't possess the traits that most races do... like honesty, integrity and remorse, and are free to suck every last drop out of any opportunity that comes their way because of it. They will renege on a deal for any reason that suits them with impunity and without remorse and will mostly believe they are in the right. A Filipino that overcharges and downright rips people off is fondly regarded by his countryman as a "businessman". How do you ally, do business, negotiate or even at times simply co-exist with people that can freely conduct themselves this way? These people are scary, and that's if you already know how they are. Any game is playable as long as you know and understand the rules. The worldly and educated, but uninitiated, are like lambs led to the slaughter when coming up against everyday Filipinos... let alone their masters in trade. The PI feels they have to make a choice, they always do. What is best for me? Regardless of logic and foresight, I have absolutely no doubt they will side with China over the US. They will choose China as there will be a CASH winfall from recourses they will mine from areas accepted as being under PI sovereignty. Quid pro quo. it fits their DNA. On the bright side, the longer they continue to make poor decisions, the longer we have cheap 3rd world pussy. Our future is so bright I gotta wear shades.
  13. Yup, same reason we are all here... although our own sickness is far more palatable.
  14. A little bit of knowledge about Australia's aid contributions to the PI would't go astray before saying things like this dude.
  15. It was an unrelated, unprovoked jab buddy. A bit like the perennial AUD collapse threads that go unfounded every time. Annoy me sometimes.What are we, a whipping post for some US guys? I assure we aren't. As for worrying about me taking my bat and ball, don't concern yourself, i'm a big boy and can take care of myself among the biggest mouths here.
  16. I wouldn't have thought any American was in a position to take the piss out of foreign dignitaries or leaders of any other country considering their track record over the last 20 years or so . But there ya go...ignorance and arrogance are unbounded I guess. Maybe you should confine your mindlessly uninformed political bullshit to the forum you love so much.

  17. http://www.sunstar.com.ph/network/news/2016/09/03/10-dead-60-injured-davao-city-night-market-explosion-495369(UPDATED) -- Ten people were killed while 60 others were injured in an explosion at the night market on Padre Gomez St., Davao City, around 10:15 p.m., Friday, September 2, said Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella. The victims were rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center, Lismo Hospital, Davao Doctors Hospital, and Brokenshire Hospital. "Let us pray for the victims of this unfortunate incident, especially for those who died. Let us pray for those who are being treated in different hospitals and pray for their quick recovery. There are at least 10 people who perished because of the incident and a number were reported wounded," Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte said in a statement. "Rest assured the authorities are on top of this incident. Right now, we cannot yet give definite answer to as to who is behind this as we are also trying to determine what really exploded. It's a sad day for Davao and for the Philippines," the vice mayor added. Police Regional Office (PRO)-Davao Director Manuel Gaerlan said they are conducting thorough investigation of the explosion. "The PNP is assuring the public that the situation is being handled carefully. A thorough investigation is being conducted to determine the cause of the explosion and checkpoints/chokepoints were already established at all exit points in the city. We call on all the people to be vigilant at all times and report to the police any suspicious packages or persons. Please refrain from creating/passing misleading or unverified reports to avoid confusion and panic," Gaerlan said. As of 10:25 p.m., Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, together with Presidential Executive Staff Bong Go, arrived in the area and ordered the closure of bars and establishments. The public was also asked to go home.
  18. Hope being the operative word mate. Alex was behind the monthly payment scam the bars were pushed to make to the city, so I won't hold my breath. The main reason why most airlines pull out from using Clark is because they were getting their ass reamed on fuel, landing and terminal charges. Unless Alex has had an epiphany, I can't see him creating a more business-friendly environment at his new post. The standard business philosophy here...NEVER think about fostering future income by providing a good product at a fair price today and creating good will. Get as much as you can from every customer NOW. Kampampangans have a reputation amongst Pinoys of being the best at it. Now that's a strong recommendation if I ever saw one. They learned from having the base to prey on for generations. The Arroyo and Aquino dynasties are poster children for the concept. At least we got lots of cheap pussy out of it... and i'll take that over a viable airport option any day. Don't ever forget... the more civilized you make it, the worse it will be. The LAST thing AC mongers want is Clark airport functioning as it could.
  19. An island about the size of Bohol would be about right if they imprisoned 50% of those who deserve it.
  20. I'm going to go against the grain of most comments. "Gee...that's unusual" I hear some mutter. In the majority of western courts his involvement in the murder was only "after the fact". He is guilty of armed robbery by his involvement being the wheel-guy and removing items fro the premises . I would imagine in MOST western courts he would be convicted and sentenced for armed robbery BUT in Texas! "Under Texas' "Law of Parties," a person can be charged with capital murder even if the offense is committed by someone else." That's the kicker right there. By Texas law he is up for the noose and that is their right to enforce it. I hate crime and criminals but judging from the info provided this seems just a tad harsh, coming from a state of the leaders of the free world, but hey...maybe the deterrent works sometimes.
  21. If a tree falls in the forest does anyone hear it? Far too much shit going on in the forest nowadays.
  22. I love sushi and have pretty much stopped eating it here unless I bought it and froze it myself. (Tuna needs to be frozen properly for a minimum 24 hrs to kill inherent bacteria.) I only eat anything else raw if I was in control of the process. Except for pussy, like Merlot. You may not live any longer by not eating it...but it sure will seem like it.
