  1. When I fir5st moved to the Philippines I met another expat also named Dave who had been here many years. He ran several businesses in the Philippines and he gave me one invaluable piece of advice…

    Never leave your house to do more than one task (for example, pay one bill). Anything else, do the next day r the day after. I have violated that advice many times and I always regret it when I do. The “Old Dave” was right. One bill or one trip to the bank or one supermarket visit at a time.

      1. No, but just because of what happened to you on this odyssey you just describe … when there are multiple tasks thing always seem to multiply and one problem always leads to another … next thing you know you are coming home hours later than you thought you would be, and all worn out, thirsty and sometimes pissed at how thing went. Only allow one thing the opportunity piss you off on one day … you’ll live longer 😉

        1. If you have the time to do that, it sounds like a good plan. I suppose it depends on the task. Doing 2 or 3 simple tasks seems harmless enough, although you never know. Paying my Globe bill should have been a simple task. I’ve got the time to do everything so maybe just doing them one at a time is the way to go. It wouldn’t hurt to try it out for a while to see how that works out.
