    by

    dont book/stay in this hotel. my newphew lost his cellphone in their room and we were charged in a lost remote control for the unreasonably price of PHP 2,500!!! there are thieves in this hotel, they will make a report that something is lost so you will pay for it. even the wifi costs PHP 200 per hour, imagine that! so greedy!!! even small hotels or hostels offer free wifi but they dont. the front office staff always make mistakes in their bookings, stupid and very slow, it would take an hour or more when checking out. their breakfast is not good as well, they serve leftovers.

need urgent help

by pinaypay

hi everyone!

I am looking for a place to stay for about 15 days in Quezon city area, specifically near sulo hotel (we cant afford sulo..we just graduated..no job as of the moment.. ). It can be an apartment, apartelle, pension house... anything that is decent and safe and of course cheap( around 400-600 php). Ive heard about R n J homes but i cant seem to find them online so if you have any comment about that place, then pls do reply.
thank you! God bless! :)

RE: need urgent help

With due respect and not to offend neptune28, I would think Welcome Rotunda much less the Chinese Gen would be too far if the point of reference is Sulo Hotel.

However, I don't have an exact solution myself! But what comes to mind is for you to find accommodations near/behind the Philippine Heart Center, SSS, and/or Quezon City Hall. The Teachers Village, UP Village and UP Bliss in Philcoa would be a good start to scout for a place. Even the UP Campus (there are a lot of residential areas in the "campus") is an alternative! And I believe some VT members live in the area. I hope they're all still alive and can pitch any info in.

I just know there are a lot of apartments, apartelles, dorms, hostels, etc in the area of Sulo Hotel, Heart Center, SSS, LTO, etc as I often pass there. But I can't point a specific place that I will be confident enough to recommend.

Being NOT "notorious" for any problems, I think any place in this area that fits your budget would be fine enough. The place teems with accoms for students and young professionals.

You can even extend your search to Tandang Sora, Kamias, Kamuning, Balara or Katipunan. Those all will be nearer the Sulo Hotel area than a place at Welcome Rotunda or the Chinese General Hospital.

Peace!

:)

marriage

by edismobile

Hi,
can someone please advise me how much ot will cost me to marry my fiancee in the Philippines?
We plan a civil wedding with no guets/ celeration repection.
Probably in Mindanao or possibly in Manila.
How much is the license fee etc?
What is the procedure please?
Any help or advice will be most welcome please,
thanks,
Ed

Why don't you ask your future wife? Anyways, it would not reach a hundred dollars US if she's still single. That is for a civil marriage. But she will need the proper documents, birth certificate and nso certified. Application fees about 250 pesos.

RE: marriage

by marissa71

we arranged a wedding w/ my friend grace, she married a very good man from France. My friend Tak arranged the papers and the Judge. it was 3 years aho P20k++. Pls ask your wife to go to NSO get a doc. that will prove that she is single......i will call my friend.

They got married in Sulo Hotel, 50 guests. Il write to her and I will let u know. I will also contact my friend who just got married in Quezon City Hall, that cost them P3K, I think. Dont worry. I will let u know tomorrow.

Hi Marissa,
thanks for that info.
My fiancee already has her paperwork done, birth cert, nso etc.. i just need to know the cost of the actual licence cos i cant afford a big reception at all and as she lives far away from a town, its easier for me to try and sort it all out for us.
look forward to hearing from u.

RE: marriage

by marissa71

I will write tomorrow about your inquiry. My friend have not talked to her father(who arranged the ceremony)...il write back tomorrow.

RE: RE: marriage

by ino_hsb

I dont know if there is a standard rate for civil weddings but my friend got married in a provincial municipal hall and paid 2000 pesos for it (roughly $37). You might have to have a very small reception afterwards since you should have witnesses when you sign the contract.

RE: RE: marriage

by edismobile

thanks for that,
i didn't think that it was dear really, but just need to know the rough price before I commit to getting married in the Philippines... otherwise we will get married here in the UK after my fiancee has been granted her visa- tho i would prefer to marry there.

RE: RE: marriage

Best of luck to you and your fiancee and congratulations.

Travel Tips for Manila

HISTORICAL INTRAMUROS (Walled City)

by Ric

Go to INTRAMUROS, the Walled City, and see FORT SANTIAGO which contains the José Rizal Shrine. A five-minute stroll away is the the MANILA CATHEDRAL with its beautiful stained glass windows showing Filipino themes, and GENERAL LUNA STREET (toward Puerto Real gate) where the National Council on Culture and the Arts Museum and (further on) Silahis Arts & Artifacts store and the adjoining Ilustrado Cafe are located. Riding the JEEPNEYS, which are unique open-sided, public transport vehicles based upon the army jeep and carrying 10 - 14 people. Each is exuberantly decorated and carry such signs as (in translation): 'pretty girls sit in the front [next to the driver]; ugly ones, in the back,' or (in English) 'God is my copilot.' Payment (minimum fare is P7.50/US$ .14) involves passing your money from passenger to passenger until it reaches the driver. You tell him where you got on and where you want to get off. He makes change which is passed back to you. Understanding Tagalog is a help, although there is always someone who can speak some English. This is definitely getting among the folks.

Getting Around Manila From Airport!

by machomikemd

Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL) is eight miles (12 kilometres) south of Manila. Take only official, metered or pre-booked taxis, do not accept rides from people that approach you in the terminal. The taxis in the line in front of ÔarrivalsÕ are metered and will charge around 150-200 Pesos (6USD-8USD) to central Manila hotels. It will take about 20 minutes to one hour for the trip, depending on traffic. Many of the major hotels run cars which you can book in advance, or you can look for a hotel representative in ÔarrivalsÕ. The cost is around 750-950 Pesos (30USD-38USD), and is considered well worth the cost for the convenience and security. Once youÕre in town you may be advised to use the pool of taxis operated by your hotel. They have fixed fares and provide a more convenient and safe way around the city than driving yourself or dealing with the difficult public taxi system Arriving at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) may be a nearly unique lifetime experience. Because of security, no one without special authorization may come into the airport. All "greeters" must remain outside, across the street from the main entrance. There is an air-conditioned, glassed in raised waiting area, where for a nominal fee, your "greeters" can wait. Because of the huge number of Filipinos who work overseas, Balikbayans, the luggage area can be pure mayhem. Take a deep breath. You're here!

WARNING: Watch your purse and carry on baggage while you are standing at the carousel waiting for your luggage. Although undoubtedly no worse than any other large city, there are pickpockets and thieves about who take advantage of your distraction to rob you. I know of at least one seasoned expat whose welcome to Manila included the theft of her wallet and all of her money, documents, and credit cards. Exercise caution!

Phone card

Espasol "Rice Pastry"

by machomikemd

Espasol (Rice Pastry) is a cylinder-shaped Filipino rice cake originating from the province of Laguna. It is made from rice flour cooked in coconut milk and sweetened coconut strips, dusted with toasted rice flour and can be given a distinct taste by adding favorite flavorings such as pandan (pandanus leaf), buko (young coconut) or langka (jackfruit) for a heavenly melange of flavors and textures. It has a sweet taste. It is coated with powder to lessen stickiness and prolong shelf life.

Packing List

by rdinsmore

Pack light. If you end up needing extra clothing, it is so cheap to get stuff in the city. You may want to pack bug spray, sunblock lotions and minor first aid kit especially if you intend to travel outside Manila/Quezon City.
