    Congrats on the approval of your probationary 13A resident visa, topper! Now you really gotta be sweet to your missus!

    Re: hiking pics, yes - pics of topper hiking in lycra!

    Topper, there are beaches near you and Mt Kanlaon is just a few towns away. Most travel restrictions have been removed, so go explore your island! There's a nice eco-park in/ near Bacolod (forgot the name). I visited it many moons ago.

    Interesting story. The geologists name was Colin Spence per intragoogles

    Are you still in that kind of work?

    Congrats on your visa, topper! So yours was almost 4 months processing. I've read/ heard that it takes 3-6 months on average. I've also heard that there are fewer requirements when you convert it to the permanent one.

    Just remember, be a good resident. Follow the rules, don't involve yourself in PH politics (online or offline) and remember the laws esp on Data Privacy, Anti Cybercrime and Safe Spaces!

    ^lol. If you feel that your "safe space" has been trespassed, then that could be considered as a cybercrime. You'd have to prove it in a PH court, though.

    Btw, those ^^ are real laws in PH.

    Data Privacy Act: RA (Republic Act) 10173
    Cybercrime Prevention Act: RA 10175
    Safe Spaces Act: RA 11313 (includes online harassment & bullying)

    Most of us know about Topper's past issue re: courts in TH...

    The wedding was on the 15th, we registered with the amphur on the 22nd. We waited a week just to see if it was going to work.

    To be honest, I'd forgotten.

    Without considering our anniversary, we did decide to go to the best burger shop here, Gunny's, before going to a shop nearby that is owned by a Brit who bakes bread and pastries and sells his own pesto and such.

    Who ever said posting on Teakdoor is a waste of time? Just saved a marriage, or at the very least a night of bollocking…
