Yes, thank you. There are many different places here. There are indeed some beautiful provinces. Just try finding work in them though... Not sure what all the people here do for work, but my job has me trapped in Cavite. Anyone lived here? I've been trying to transfer to Cebu for years now, but I think they like torturing me. If I can finally make it to Cebu, I'm thinking of Dumagate. I do 80% or so of my work via my macbook. I only have to make an appearance 4-6 times a month. Still, expensive rice is not more delicious than meatballs, cheese, tomato sauce, bread, pasta, sausage, etc.... Just answering the OP.
