Found an interesting competiviteness index about the cities and municipalities. On Neg Or and in the category Component Cities year 2017 there are ranked
Bayawan 44th and one of the most improved city.
As a comparison
Naga (Cam Sur) 2nd
The list seems quite correct for me.
I evaluated the comparisoned cities as a possible future living place and could agree with the list.
Bais and Bayawan will get another leap ahead in the future due more improvements coming up. (Hospitals, malls and more)
The surprise is that Bayawan is already in front of Dumaguete, even if many improvements are still not being complete there.
Drug dealer arrested with 24 million worth of Shabu in Dumaguete Negros teams from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office (NORPPO), Provincial Intelligence Branch - Special Operations Group (PIB-SOG) and Dumaguete City Police have Thursday morning, in the Bajumpandan district of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental Province, in a Sari-Sari store of one Drug traffickers worth PHP 24 million confiscated. - klajoo.com - PIB-SOG Chief Inspector Armel of Alegria said the drug use was carried out by 27-year-old drug dealer Janmark "Biboy" Abadilla, four packs of Shabu weighing two kilos, and a loaded .38 revolver and 120,000 PHP Cash confiscated. According to Alegria, Abadilla was under surveillance after paying around 50,000 PHP per day to his boss' bank account. It's unusual for someone with a sari-sari store to make such sales on a daily basis, said Alegria. After Abadilla had just rented the sari-sari store, it's still unclear whether he's...
Hello All..... I have been a member for years and really appreciate this site.
My wife wants to locate closer to family ( Bohol ) . We bought a lot that I think is like 3400 sq.mtr. close to Valencia..... It is mainly a view property overlooking part of Dumaguete and the Ocean. Water and power run right next to property. Easy hookup. Wrye rode his motorcycle up there and took some pics , Aug 14,2015. We had the property titled well over 5 years ago and had a barbed wire / concrete post fence put in around the perimeter... Also has a large gate....
How does one get valuation for this and what are the best places to post it??? We will be coming back for a couple months this coming October.
Thanks all and best wishes from Washington State
It means you need to ask (politely, I assume) if any place you INTEND to enter is a drug den (or COULD be classed as one AFTER you have entered the premises) and do so before any part of your body enters the premises.
Will be a "newbie" in town come September and most people in the forum recommend hiring a trike for the day to do simple errands around town and also an excellent way to know the Dumaguete area instead of renting a car.
Does anybody have a good trike driver for hire? I just leased a house in San Lorenzo Upper Talay-Balugo--no idea how far this is from Dumaguete City proper.
can I ask you for a favor
does anybody know if there is a vacation house in or nearby Dumaguete
renting for a few days from August 17th.
We are s group with ca 6 adults and 5 kids - no need fot great luxury.
Highly appreciated if anybody can give an information.
Although I defer to our resident expert, Professor Sir Dr Ski, to provide detailed information, I supply basic information about the Perseid meteor shower due to reach a peak Sunday night/Monday morning:
"On the late evening hours of August 12, the peak of the Perseid meteor shower will start as it will grace the sky with more than 50 meteors per hour until early morning of August 13, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on its bulletin."
Until Dr Ski says otherwise, my advice if wondering where to look is >>>>>> UP!
Is there anywhere local to purchase some form of water purification tablets - I note that in the recent polluted water problem in Sibulan the local authorities distributed HYDROSOL.
I think it would be useful to have a supply handy in case of being unable to purchase purified water - as in a natural disaster situation.
Relocating from Colorado to Dumaguete. Signing the lease contract for a house in September there. Am willing to pay driver, car, gas, and food so I can go around town to do chores and familiarize myself with the city. Will probably rent a car once I am comfortable with the area. The commercial shuttle services charge atrociously. Would appreciate anybody's help. It is a big move and kinda' wary.
Apparently the service at Y-Not has gone downhill. For specific tales of woe on this and other Duma restaurants Google thorntree Y-not update or similar. I have not been there in awhile. The service was never really great,imo. Supposedly owned by a Swiss National (how can that be?).
For fun, I started a poll, tell us what you think?
Hopefully, some of you are more economically-inclined than I am. I understand how supply/demand, interest rates, and other hard to grasp factors drive the dollar to peso exchange up or down. What irritates me it seems more times than not, the exchange rate drops every month around the time my SS monthly transfer arrives and I have to convert to cover local expenses, then goes back up a couple of weeks later. It happened again this week. I am not a great believer in conspirisies but it sure seems suspicious.
I imagine it is the toughshitski rule, it happens!
Will ACR Card expiration affect sec13a permanent visa?
My country changed the national ID system to biometric. When I wanted to renew my expired passport at the representative office in Manila, I was told "no bio ID, no renewal" as they do not have equipment to make bio ID.
I got stack as I cannot go back to my country and financially exhausted due to my offspring college expenses . ACR renewal requires valid passport. My options are none apparently unless someone of you could help me with some ideas.
I have family here and I do not know if I approach the BI a deportation will be my fate which I am worried about loosing my family.
I wait for your help.
For the past several years I have tracked aircraft starting with a USB dongle and its short antenna attached to my laptop or computer . It is amazing to be able to see on your screen what is flying over Leyte, Bohol, Bacolod and IloIlo if you can get that tiny antenna high enough. I got interested by looking at Flightradar24.com - Live flight tracker!, Flight Tracker | Real-Time Tracking | Plane Finder and FlightAware - Flight Tracker / Flight Status / Flight Tracking and gathered information on DIY options to see if I could do it on the cheap in my spare time. I got hooked!
Each of those sites gather flight information from hobby trackers like you and me. The only requirement to feed information is always on internet, speed is not important. On each of those sites at a particular instance all of the planes in the air may not be shown because a neighbors tree, building or mountain...
I've been a member for quite awhile and have heard that it is not worth shipping a vehicle to the Philippines; but curious if anyone has actually done it.
My situation is a bit different I think; the current company I work for in Korea (US company and I have SOFA status) worked out that it was cheaper for them to buy me a vehicle that spending $1000-$1200 a month on a rental (part of my negotiation).
They came up with a max of $6K...I bought (reimbursed) a 2010 Kia Sportage with 73,000km for $5.2+K. I really like the vehicle and figure since it basically cost me nothing that it would be worth looking into shipping it after my project ends.
I've checked on the Korean side, we have a lot of military and civilians here and it is not an issue sending it out. I will obviously check more into the import side from the Philippines but any guidance/advice would be appreciated.
I've looked at new vehicles as well as used in the Philippines and if it costs me $4000-$6000 I do feel good...
