  1. Getting them to move faster will never happen you’re on island time. Philippines is the only place I know of that the people carry more umbrellas in the sun then in the rain. And wear more clothes when going to the beach then they wear going shopping. Anyway what’s your hurry your retired nothing but time.

  2. Glad your feeling better and getting out. As for those tip boxes don’t know how that would work out. When I’m home in sorsogon and go to savemore getting the items bagged is not a problem. Actually they box and carry it out to the trike . Tried to give him tip he would not take it. He said he could lose his job for taking tips for doing his job. But the problem is they have 12 check out lanes and only 2 or 3 open. Reminds of wal-mart bunch of checkout lanes only a couple open.
    Enjoy your anniversary and hope the ribs are good. And I have to agree with randy buy your meat at a local meat store and you can control the meat to fat mix. If I’m doing burgers it’s always 80/20 mix for me.

    1. I still don’t get out near enough. We have the party tomorrow so I’ll be out for that, kind of. It’s not really out and about. I have plans to get at least 2 videos done this month for the blog. I haven’t done one in awhile. I’m thinking now that I should have just gotten that Banana Boat stuff, but too late now. I’ll stick with the Nivea that I already bought. I’ll just put it on a little bit thick. I could never give them a tip either, but if it was sent up that way, then maybe. I don’t know, I’m just trying to figure out something to get people motivated around here. They are very helpful, but they take their time doing it. The boxers are pretty quick, but their doesn’t always seem to be enough of them to go around, which further delays the already slow lines. Yeah, working on that meat mixture thing. I just need to convince the wife it’s the best way to go.

  3. The ground beef at Super Metro is 50% fat (50/50 per the butcher) so what the wife does is buy the beef tips for P165 per kilo and have them grind it. About the same price p/kilo but now it is very lean, about 90/10. Anything refrigerated or frozen is more expensive at the Metro, but some things like you say (bell peppers) are better. Everything else, we buy at the local street markets.

    1. Well that 50/50 thing is good to know. I know you already heard and saw what Lita did buy buying some meats too expensive and having them ground together. Next month I’ll get here to do only the beef tips (like Teri) and she’ll see that it’s just as good and saves her money. Yeah there are probably always going to be things we will buy from the street vendors, no matter how many supermarkets they put up here.
