The 1st lady didn't want her & her child's location to be known bcos they were hiding from the kid's dad. Short story: you shouldn't upload other people's pics wherein they are identifiable, unless you have their consent. We (in my workplace) are given seminars abt them - data privacy law, gender issues, etc.

    Anyhoo, carry on with the vacay pics.
    Wow. Have Filipinos suddenly gone all PC? That's interesting. Pretty sure Topper has some experience of south east asian litigation rules . And the consequences ? Maybe a good thing Backspins trip report was a bit vanilla. He might not of wanted to ger sued by pissed of Filipinos?

    Any time my children have pictures taken and the schools would like them to be uploaded to some website, I'll have to give my digital consent.

    It's a polite courtesy nowadays.

    People's images are taken hundreds of times a day without their consent via cctv, camera door bells etc etc, it's impossible to police unless you are on private property.

    Otherwise in public everyone is fair game to the photon collector, that's just the way it is nowadays and some people don't get it.

    @BLD - it's the way of the world now. Some people or Filipinos) don't care about it and are OK to be in vloggers' vids or pics, but some aren't and they value their privacy. Bottom line is, if someone doesn't like their image to be online in a photo or video and asks you to delete, then you delete it.

    That's why in my recent pic threads (I think it was about Baguio), I blurred out all the faces and/ or posted only peooles' backs.

    Re: backspin's pics, I didn't call him out on them since he doesn't live in PH and won't be sued, etc. The "pajama girls" - only their backs were seen = safe. The "motor show girls" - they're hired models, so they must have signed a consent form that their image could be taken & uploaded to websites = safe. The guy with the gun = he probably won't object to having his pic uploaded = safe.

    *****
    Contrast that with UK laws, for example. There was the recent "piano gate" issue involving "Dr K" Brendan Kavanagh(?), a YouTuber/ pianist. He was live streaming from a train station in London. He was asked by some Chinese ppl to not film them and to delete the vid. He said he was within his rights in the UK (filming is allowed in public places). If that situation happened in PH and ppl asked him to delete the photo/ vid, then he should delete them. Diff country, diff rules.

    Exactly, a simple point that appears to be beyond Chitty’s understanding.

    ^yes, and topper lives in PH so he must follow PH rules.

    I remember hearing from an expat vlogger (here in PH) about a time when he was in a mall food court. He panned the camera to capture the ppl in the food court. A lady noticed it and approached him and asked him to delete the vid since she didn't want to be in the vid which will be on YouTube. Expat at first didn't want to delete. Then the lady said that she's a lawyer and stated the names & numbers of the laws (Safe Spaces Act, Data Privacy Act) and that she was within her rights to ask to delete the vid. Expat vlogger complied. Then he made a vid abt it. He didn't know abt the laws (they were relatively new at that time) but as we know, ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

    Diff country, diff rules. When in Rome... and all that jazz...

    Well here some more,

    After we got into the room, we changed and went to the beach of course.

    Gin and Tonic and Halo-Halo, we got that whole East/West vibe going..

    The wife and I agreed the smoked meat they use is the best we've had in a long time. We headed back to the room and ended our night.

    Yeah, food was pretty limited.

    I ate ‘Thai Fish Curry’ for three days. Not even filipinos could make too much of a mess of fresh fish and coconut milk there.

    Blimey.



    700 baht of 3BB's finest.

    tbh I don't notice any difference from when it was only 100mbps a few years ago.

    Unless you're streaming UHD sports or video conferencing or whatever it's not really needed.

    Like SHD 8k TVs, it doesn't make a difference unless the screen is the size of a wall.

    ^topper - nice pics, but the latest ones ^ aren't showing for me. It just says attachment_xyz.

    Btw, what were the expats whinging about? Out of stock, power cuts, the food, bureaucracy, all of the above?

    @bettyboo - why me?! Shouldn't you go with your wife and your cute lil shih tzu? Besides, if I'm your tour guide, I'll make you hike a 9/9 difficulty mountain with "knife edges" and "kiss the wall" parts.

    I've extracted the info from her now. Apparently it's called Tai whey floating bar owned by lakawon Beach island resort lakawon Island. Probably not near bantayan ? It's near cadiz city , Negro's occidental.
