As far as MikeK1 is concerned only he can say what he did with the photo. Not me
I hate to say this P11 but as a lurker on your thread about your family I now have a serious doubts about the veracity of the whole story. I'll believe you when Mike1 posts the supposed photo but I suspect thats not going to happen.

i do believe what I wish

more importantly I disbelieve bola bola when I sniff it. That any sane intelligent person can believe that such a poorly crafted statement is official suggests they have lost the plot. To the point that any other posts they make or may have made be treated with same thoughts.

Things are hard enough for people here without irresponsible and plain dumb posts being made.

I wonder how offended US embassy staff are at being accused of making such poorly crafted ''official'' statements.

More disasters with this virus. Went to have my hair cut again today but barbers still shut, there are 3 guys who cut hair and normally at least one is there. The security guard opposite told me that it has been shut for over 2 weeks. Apparently someone told them they had to use lots of alcohol to keep from getting the virus but seemed to have neglected to tell them it was for washing their hands and face, so they have been on a two week bender with Tanduay. Still a pony tail is in fashion apparently.

Try to have your beard trimmed when the barber insists you wear a mask!

Some people are easily fooled. They'll believe anything even when all evidence points to the contrary

What's important is not just grocery and medical. As well as barber shops it seems to me there are a number of other useful and necessary services that with certain protocols could be operated quite safely during the coming months. Eg last week no notary publics were open locally, all small car shops were shut, hardwares too. Yet a housing construction site was still working near us. Even two branches of a regional chain of pawn shops were shut, with no notices outside. People need something to do as well as to earn money.

Guidance can be tweaked eg quantity restrictions at supermarkets are causing problems for Sari Sari stores.

How long can the government here afford to support poor families? If as seems likely we are looking at a wave of virus spread middle class families will also begin to run out of money. The Philippines is not big for online shopping, so a small government budget with many more months of lockdown will ruin the economy. People will get sick, or sicker, and maybe die from other existing physical or mental health conditions because they can't afford their medicines.

Some relaxation of the lockdown after the first month can mitigate the damage. I think the Barangays must be wanting to be less restrictive, but are being stopped by those at the top..

Agree entirely. Had to get a quarantine pass to enter town.

I see on the news that some parts of manilla will have a 24 hour curfew in the coming days. They say its to combat the virus. I don't believe that for one moment.

Troops and police abound here where we have been locked down for about one week now

​​​​​​Regards

The main Philpost recently closed here in Paranaque. Obviously not seen as an essential public service!

So once you are able to find a bank manager, doctor etc actually at his or her desk to sign your "Proof of Life" form it may be difficult to find a Philpost open.. But even if you can I'm guessing the service might be poor as passenger flights to the UK are greatly reduced. So an alternative like LBC, whose offices seem to be open, might be better. Even if costing a lot more.

Don't count on LBC, offices they declared open have not been in operation since the lockdown started. Suggest a Skype call to DWP.

Maybe, but I found one open today in Paranaque. Long wait social distanced outside though.

barangay Bel air in makati have in effect closed 7/11 and other food/grocery stores to non Bel air residents. To enter you have to have a Bel air Barangay pass. So much for ensuring vital foo supplierss are exempted from draconian stupidity when local despots can behave like this. The main footfall for such places in that area is the BPO industry, You know the one that has NATIONAL exempt status not recognised by Barangay Bel air!!!
