English is supposedly an official language of Philippines except that these islanders cannot understand a bl00dy word I say and when they question where I am from and why do I speak only slang English I jokingly reply "I am English, we invented the bl00dy language.
"English" isn't an official language of Philippines, only "American English", so an "English" speaker wouldn't get very far teaching them, besides that they can't afford private tutoring.
Not sure what bungalows you're looking at, whilst my accommodations are single storey they are actually en-suite (hotel style) rooms ... If you were looking at my business's website then the room rates are on there on the "reservations" page.
My ex and I splitting up last December delayed the opening of the restaurant, my new girlfriend, indeed fiancee, is now scheduled to arrive here and move in tomorrow, lots to do such as getting the plumbing modified on the accommodations, replacing the fences, I need to buy a 25KVA diesel generator, and then we'll set about getting the restaurant open, that's when this place will really start making money, once the restaurant is open.
Yep, opening a restaurant on this island is proving one of life's great challenges:
1. Our first (husband & wife) cooks decided they were going to live in our laundry room using our electricity and gas whilst eating three square meals each day plus drinking water 24/7 ... with no offer to pay for any of it.
Ex girlfriend Jane fired then after 4 days citing that I was going to lose my temper if they didn't get out :)
2. 2nd cook, well she lasted one day after she sent us shopping for packet sauces whilst serving us the worst Pork Sinigang that I have ever tasted.
3. The 3rd cook, well she lasted about a week, she did well in comparison, her Chicken Burrito was actually very good, I was becoming addicted to them, but she refused to prepare my Chicken Curry recipe citing "We don't make curry like that on this island" and despite my specific instruction not to she served fish coated in a chicken breading mix ... She resigned before she got fired.
Q: Why does one never see a Filipino restaurant internationally?
a: Because nobody wants to eat the shit they serve.
One thing I don't look for when I am in another country is look for a Filipino restaurant. There are plenty of Filipino restaurants here in California, or for that matter, the state I visit the most, Nevada.
Q: How many British people does it take to milk a cow?
A: Five. One to hold the nipple and four to move the cow up and down.
No I'm not right on the beach, I'm across the road from the sea, I know the name of my establishment has been (dyslexically) posted on this forum previously, call me old fashioned but I don't pay fiance.com (Eleview) for commercial advertising and I'm not one of those that attempts to sneakily advertise beneath the radar.
Thank you RB, how many Filipinos can one get on a motorbike?
But the vehicle is only manufactured to carry circa 125kg and the sidecar probably weighs half of that, let's say 15 people at 45kg each, including the sidecar structure that'll be a payload of around 750kg on a vehicle that's only safe to carry 125kg.
If brains were dynamite these people wouldn't have sufficient to blow their nose!
As I drive around these island roads in my van at around 60-80kph one sees the bike(s) in front, begins to slow but just doesn't appreciate how slow they are going, perhaps only 30kph thus one needs to unexpectedly hit the brakes harder.
They ride around at that speed either because they don't have a driving license and/or have never received any professional driving tuition whatsoever,or:
The bike is so overloaded it won't go any faster, or:
Because the bike is a piece of crap and shouldn't even be on the road.
