ww2, Wow sa totoo lang I'm bit perplexed how you came up with this argument.  Your point of view or maybe you read it somewhere?  Anyway Marawi ended in our favor, terrorists big heads are dead. 
   -  marawi is a dead city. in fact it was the president who provoked the terrorists  in destroying the city. it was an intelligence failure bec most of the cabinets and the pres are in russia when the terrorists attack the city.  15 billion intelligence budget going to waste.   thousand civilians displaced, 100 soldiers killed, billions of pesos  in war time operation and another 20 billions of pesos just to rebuild a city.

  crooks out of jail, smuggling, drugs.  According to PNP statics crime is down more than ever.   
  - lim, espinosa, arroyo,estrada, enrile, napoles, 22 billion shabu smuggling, binay,  richard tan, boc chief who cleared a certain smuggling case got promoted, arroyo's nephew cleared from drug raps.

High prices.  I stopped buying sugary drinks, it's bad for you.  I do the grocery shopping in my house, unless you buy the heavily taxed items the increase is very minimal.  Meat, fish, rice, tinapay very minimal.  Sugary products, cigarettes, etc. = ubos budget.

  my goodness, stop telling me what to do with my budget. we need sugar for our coffee, dessert, dishes and other things. canned goods have gone up including rice. try comparing the gasoline during past admin and  present. a yr ago i have gasoline budget of 4k per month but right now it is 6k. train law is  still phase 1 and our inflation rate is already @ 4.1 percent and that's only 4 months after the implementation. 



@ boracay - build a casino?

I chatted with some PTV, PIA and PCOO staff in Legaspi during the eruption a few months ago. Off the record they asked how as a fellow governnment worker, I felt about the current admin. I said, I could no longer care less how many he killed or how many fools he has in his cabinet. What really riles me is how he bends ove and how he tries desperately to shove the Chinese on us like a parent desperately matching an unwanted suitor on his daughter. Surprisingly they agreed with the sentiment.

@friendlyfire
Maybe we could discuss something of substance.  Don't be offended but these sound more like rantings. 


For example, the passport issue was an issue way back in nov/dec last year, it's now April.  Back then Cayetano was all over the news informing the public of actions they were taking.  Opening slots for jan/feb/etc, bringing mobile passport caravans to municipalities, etc.

just this afternoon @CNN there was press briefing on the team in charge of operation boracay, their plans etc.

amused that the character from Infinity War named Culled Obsidian is probably the comic book character Black Dwarf renamed.

1. ang taas ngayon ng bilihin. lesser items for our 2k grocery budget a week.  less travel because gas is expensive. 

2. why on earth you need to kill a 50 billion dollar  tourism industry like boracay?  i am in favor of cleaning up  boracay but
 they should have done it discreetly and with planning and coordination.   

3. drug menace is still here. no drug lords or big time dealers have been arrested.

4. more crooks out of jail.

5. except ww2 i think its the first time we lost a major city  in a battle.

6. mrt  pinolitika pwede na palang gamitin

7. napakahirap kumuha ng driver's lic at passport.
 
8. drug smuggling
etc

any thoughts whether the VW Jetta Highline is a good buy?

I think so. Lot of kit for the price.

got me a Huawei Nova 2i yesterday. battery drained 1% while i was asleep (10 pm to 5 am). much better than my ZF3 Max's 40% drain.

the screen's more saturated with color, camera takes much better pics and i could run Mobile Legends on high settings with smooth FPS (ML on ZF3 was only at medium and it still stutters often). Nova also doesn't heat up as much, even while playing games.

worth the price.

[size=78%][/size]

How long did it take from time it was actually shipped?

Sorry for late reply, here's a short summary of the time it took from purchase to actual item acquisition:

- Purchased item at 11/30/2018
- Been in DHL purgatory for almost 2 months
- Finally arrived at PH shores at 01/19/2018
- "Departed from local distribution center"at 01/26/2018
- Claimed item from local P.O. at 02/01/2018

If I want it fast in the future, I think I'll have it shipped via ShippingCart na lang.
