Re: Moving to Russia

We have a family friend who worked in Russia. One time he brought along his family - wife and 2 daughters for a vacation in Russia. They said it was a nice country with historical places. I agree that it is nice but I don't think I would travel there. The plane ticket is expensive. To live in Russia...

Re: China and Facebook

We are seeing the strength of China in its strict policy against the western social media like Facebook and Google. I am not pro China but I admire their style of having their own and getting the benefit. Think how much money Facebook would earn from the Chinese that China is now earning that kind o...

Re: The beverage called tuba

It is good to know that in some resorts in provinces south of Manila like Laguna and Batangas, they have the fresh Tuba for their guests. At least the tuba is back again which is a good beverage especially for the foreigners. It is palm drink from the coconut flowers and was a big part of the Filipi...

Re: Respect for other religion

Does anyone realize more than 90 percent of problems in our world have roots in religion? People have fought in the name of religion ever since the religions evolved. Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus all fought in the name of religion. The only religion that did not fight for religion is Buddhism,...

Re: Starting a business in Japan

I am sorry if I cannot contribute to this topic except that I know there are so many requirements for opening an offshore business in Japan. Their primary concern is the nature of the business and the capitalization. The business cannot directly compete with the local business there.

Re: living in USA

When the US is the topic of conversation my status would always be included. I had an approved petition in 2007 by my father who was a US citizen. But I did not avail of that privilege. Now my 3 siblings are US citizens and I am the only one here in the Philippines. I preferred life here because it ...

Re: Philippines!

It is sad that the night life has been gone for more than a year because of the pandemic. Manila has many nice bars and restaurants that offer a good time with their live singing or karaoke singing. Now those restaurants and bars are closed although they said that they would open once the protocols ...

When I was assigned work in London my colleagues and I went to the Isle of Wight one weekend. The island is like a big theme park with with manicured lawns and trimmed plants by the pathway.
