  1. My idea of a short video is 1-2 minutes.
    Yes, you are right. It was Jen’s cousin from Singapore who moved to Angeles City a few weeks ago.
    Metro Bank is the one we usually use for the same reason as you mentioned. We have never had a problem there but we have had problems with the other banks.

    1. So my video will probably be more of a medium for you. Rick was kind enough to say I could borrow his 8g memory card, but I never went to get it.
      I’m going to have to make due with my 4g.
      I guess the way it works is once I’ve started the video, I can’t take pictures in between? Unless I want more than one video on the same subject, but I don’t think I want that.

      1. Hi John,
        We use Metrobank too and it seems the line can be very long. We were using PNB exclusively but the state of Ohio put the kaibosh on their web remit program (seems they’re not a licensed bank in Ohio, imagine that!) I’m looking forward to your videos. I’ve done a few of Calbayog and a little traveling around. Seems that a minute and a half is about right. Add me on Facebook and you can borrow them if you want, lol. Have a great trip.

        1. Where are you on Facebook? I just might ‘borrow’ a few.
          A minute and a half for a video? I don’t know much about doing videos,but what can you do in 1 1/2 minutes, unless you have multiple videos.
          I was thinking of doing one longer video, but maybe it’s necessary to split them up into several smaller ones. I don’t know how the video thing works beside how to take the video.
          If I stop it, I guess that’s 1 video. Then I’d have to start another one at the next place.
          Can I just continue where I left off? I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

  2. Yuck, lines at the ATM in Calbayog can be nasty. We usually only go to one particular bank although I can’t think of the name. It is on the same street heading south from Jollibees. It is not the first bank but the second bank south of Jollibees. I have seen as many as 15 people in line there at a time. The thing that drives me the craziest is the people that are taking care of multiple transactions at once for more than one person. They are the ones usually right in front of me. If I remember correctly, Lita and Jen ended up in the same line once.

    I think adding videos is a good idea. I look forward to seeing them for your trip to Tambis. I think a lot of short videos is better than one or two long videos. At least that is my two centavos worth.

    I am looking forward to seeing the new waterfalls at Nijaga park. So far, I have only seen pictures. Maybe you can do a video of the waterfalls.

    You could do some videos around town of your favorite places to eat or shop so people can get an idea of where they are located. Again, my two centavos worth.

    Pet peeve: Jen will text me that she is “on the way”. Now to you and me, on the way means that she is in the vehicle or whatever mode of transportation she will be using. She is certainly still not in the house, right? WRONG! I will be waiting for her somewhere and it is only a few minutes walk or ride and she will text me that she is “on the way” and she will show up 30 minutes later. Does Lita do that to you also?

    1. The lines do get long and it’s Metro Bank. It seems to be the most popular ATM in town. I would use another one, but this one seems to be the only one that consistently works with my card. The other ones usually come up with errors.
      It wasn’t Jen that was in line, it was Jen’s cousin (?) from Singapore.
      Well I don’t plan on doing a video that is too long, but what do you consider a “short” video.
      I plan on the beginning of the trip, maybe a little in any big towns we come to and if I remember how long it took us to get there, the highlights of Tambis/Catmon, such as they (but we will be going to the falls we went to before) and the beginning and end of the trip home.
      Not much to the little artificial waterfall. A picture is about as good as a video, except you can see the water actually flowing.
      I already thought about that restaurant thing and also just a walk downtown too.
      Pet peeve response: It must be a Filipino thing.
      That reminds me of another Pet Peeve, but I’m going to put it in the next post to add more content. It probably applies to most Filipinos also.
