some will replace original parts with cheap copy

I too would not waste time repairing a TV or Computer unless it was a very expensive one here. But I don't know MacGuyver

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 11:18 AM)

Yes, I had the same thought but a recommendation helps. Dont think it is a major problem.

@  Kadachiman : (19 August 2018 - 09:46 AM)

I have had 3 different companies take 5 attempts to fix my aircond (leaking gas)...still no luck. This and other items that I needed 'repaired' has led me to the conclusion that the skills are not available to fix anything, so better to throw it away and buy new

@  scuba539 : (19 August 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Saw an ad in the Blue Book for ACT TV Repair shop...09178315689...Never used them but claim to have been in Biz since 1981

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 06:57 AM)

My TV is playing up, any one know a reliable repair place in AC, please. A home visit place would be good, no transport, but somewhere near to downtown AC would be ok as could take it in a trike.

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 02:19 AM)

@sandman if your computer goes down you should not have to wait 2 days. Second floor of SM has a couple places that will fix it while you wait if they have the part

@  statusquo : (19 August 2018 - 01:05 AM)

@Sandman! Up to you brother, this board is collective

@  grahamuk : (19 August 2018 - 12:55 AM)

@  Chris in Makati : (18 August 2018 - 04:28 PM)

@grahamuk It was mega-hot from June up until a couple of weeks ago. It had been hitting 35 degrees some days. Hotter than the Philippines!

@  grahamuk : (18 August 2018 - 02:24 PM)

I thought it was supposed to have been the hottest summer on record in the UK. Then again, we know how quickly that can change.:(

@  stew : (18 August 2018 - 12:58 PM)

@polarkat you must be up north, I went to PI in October cameback May not worn a coat since 2017

@  polarkat : (18 August 2018 - 12:51 PM)

I'm back in England for a few weeks for an operation and to think that in mid August i'm going out wearing a jumper and a coat! Can't wait to be back to shorts and tshirts :)

@  grahamuk : (17 August 2018 - 12:58 PM)

Seconded.

@  jeremy1234 : (17 August 2018 - 02:41 AM)

Sandman has plenty of tasteful and wonderful pictures. Professional even. I have seen videos of him at work, the man is meticulous and the final photos look great

@  jeremy1234 : (17 August 2018 - 02:40 AM)

Oh. I saw somewhere that somebody wrote 850 with consumables. I haven't been to any of these pool parties so I don't know

@  Girth : (17 August 2018 - 02:39 AM)

I’m planning to cook for my girlfriend when I visit her. I met my girlfriend about 3 years ago through a foreign matchmake tour and I have been visiting her from time to time. Next month, I’m planning to visit her again. She loves cooking for me whenever we get together but this time, I really want to cook a Filipino dish for her. My problem is that I’m not sure what dish would be best and easiest to prepare. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Just a question- they eat Filipino foods every day , why not cook something from your country? They love to try new things and you will never be able to cook a Filipino dish like they cook it. My girl loves to try new things. LoL. No harm intended, just a suggestion

Ask her what province she is from and what is the favorite dish for that area. Once you have the name of the dish(s) then google is your friend for an ingredients list and probably can find a video on line showing you how to prepare.

You could combine a gift and cooking by buying a pressure cooker and prepare beef adobo.

Local beef is hard to get tender and most house holds don't have a pressure cooker.

I know it was an instant hit with my wife !

Lumpia, its hard to f that up. Adobo and africana are pretty simple as well. Then there is always fried fish and rice, too easy.

I agree about cooking them something from your country.   I disagree about not being able to cook something like they do.    Or I should say, you should be able to cook it and they like it.   The internet is a wonderful thing.  You can do an internet search and find numerous recipes for different Filipino foods.

Been married to a pinay for more than a decade. Even though I’ve witnessed her cook numerous Filipino dishes, the only thing I am allowed to cook is rice. I’m quite capable in the kitchen, but know that I would never get it “just right”.

There are subtle differences in how certain Filipino dishes are cooked from region to region, so simply googling a recipe doesn’t ensure it’s the style they are used to. You might end up cooking something that is not prepared the way they’re used to.

My wife’s family (especially my father/brother-in-laws) are amused that I actually cook complete meals, it’s not a typical male trait.

Stick with what you know and are comfortable with. Filipinos are always sharing food. Your offer to cook and share will mean more than what you actually prepare.

Unless you are actually a cook or do cooking as a hobby, why bother?  This probably won't impress anyone.  If you do cook as a hobby cook something that is your specialty.  The special dish might impress them but doing the cooking wont impress anyone.  This is the PHL.

I disagree.   It just might impress them.    Hell, they are impressed(or surprised) if you speak a little bit of Tagalog.
