    As with all of these edicts, by the time they are all filtered down and confirmed, it will change again a few days later. You couldn't write it!

    Was stopped at a checkpoint on Bacong-Valencia road. They are also checking cars for minors and seniors.

    You are right, I re-read and I saw the ‘exception’ for RESIDENCE in the Title of the clarification EO, though not in the body of the EO where it belongs. Given that you cannot purchase any more of this COVID19-causing menace,
    the obvious intent is to not allow people getting buzzed at home.

    But I disagree with the theory that possible degamo is trying to rid the province of alcoholism; for one thing he has not yet forbidden the coconut trees to produce tree sap for tuba but he knows expats don’t usually consume that rotgut. My theory is that this is an attempt to discourage foreigners into leaving :just joking halfway);

    A friend in Cebu last night texted how he made a ginger beer with dark brown sugar (called muscavso), ginger a little ground nutmeg and yeast purchased from a local bakery. He used 1.5 l plastic bottles which are better than glass because the CO2 sometimes explodes violently. My first impression would have that one would really need to be a committed drinker to do this. But this person isn’t. He apparently saw on a YT video how easy it is to make ginger beer (he says rice is a good alternative to ginger and as I know, commercial Budweiser beer in the US claims to be to a rice beer. The ringer was that only 12 hours later it was ready to drink, and, it turned out strong. Well, maybe someday I will give it a try. That’s how you fight back people! Lol (l

    Same at hypermart. Asked my ID and didn't let me enter. Said I have to send my wife (so she can bring corona at home). I went to bureau of immigration for visa extension (took hours), seniors everywhere in the streets, queues outside the stores, jams in downtown, but everybody wear masks.

    Robinson’s and Hypermart are probably considering that the elder ban is still strictly in place under GCQ, yet many elders are out and about so they may not want to contribute to violations. My wife is included in the ban but she looks more like 40. They didn’t ask for her I’d at Hypermart today but if they had, we could have produced a Barangay certificate authorizing travel to dumaguete for Hypermart and other places but we didn’t ask to include Robinson’s. Much of this is so useless in preventing spread of the disease.

    Thats actually a very revolutionary way of governing. I hope he doesnt take this any further.

    Once upon a time, somebody was killed with a hammer, on a Tuesday. Selling of hammers on Tuesdays forbidden! Some people drive too fast. Ban all cars!

    There's still a lot of room for making life more fun in NegOr :wink:

    That's how Totalitarian governments get their beginnings. Going for the Chinese model of governing? Will the Philippines possibly become a proxy Province of China? POGO's are now BPO's. Seems like China says, Philippines do.
