PHILIPPINE AIRLINES

Hi folks, I am hoping I am inserting the following information correctly.  I decided to try an share the items with you as the first one on PAL routes is interesting for tourists and those living here permanently.  The flights in and out of Clark continue to increase which is good but the only one I am interested in never happens:  Clark to Bangkok.  Sure you can go to Manila for that but it sure is inconvenient and hiring a car to get there can cost P2,500 to P3,000.Another way to get to and from the Airport is becoming very popular, catch the Genesis bus from Clark, the cost is only P350.  It is a beautiful bus with plenty of room for luggage and it is very comfortable.  Check it out.

MANILA – Philippine Airlines on Thursday said it was launching three new routes out of Clark airport at the end of the month, one of which flies to the booming tourist town of San Vicente, Palawan.

PAL Express president Bonifacio Sam said the company expects demand for the San Vicente route to pick up quickly, as it allows travelers to bypass Puerto Princesa en route to the resort town of El Nido.

“On December 18, we will increase the frequency of this flight to a daily flight,” said Sam.

PAL Express senior assistant vice president Harry Inoferio said the flight to San Vicente will be offered at a promotional rate of P819 one way. Flights begin on Oct. 28.

Another new route will be to San Jose, Occidental Mindoro which will be also launched on Oct. 28, and a third route will be to Cauayan, Isabela which starts Oct. 30.

Flights to these new destinations will start at P599 one-way.

Inoferio said PAL will also increase flight frequencies between Clark and Bacolod, Cagayan De Oro, Catarman, Cebu, Puerto Princesa, Basco, Busuanga, Cauayan, and Siargao.

Rabbi Ang, PAL Express assistant vice president, said flying out of Clark makes more sense for travelers on a budget.

“It’s actually better to fly out of Clark. Fares out of Clark are up to 40 percent lower than fares out of Manila,”

Sam said that with the new routes, PAL’s Clark operations will connect to 18 domestic and 1 international destination.

“That makes PAL the biggest operator of Clark,” Sam said.

MANILA – The Philippines is the second top globalization destination in the world this year, according to global strategic advisory firm Tholons.

The 2018 Services Globalization Index saw the Philippines rising to the second spot of the “Top 50 Digital Nations” after placing third last year.

India continues to dominate the list while Brazil follows the Philippines at third place.

Other countries in the top 10 are the United States, Mexico, Canada, Russia, Vietnam, Colombia, and South Africa.

“Most of the services will get commoditized for the biggest leaders in services globalization like US, UK, Canada, Europe, India, Philippines, East Europe, and Latin America,” the index report stated.

Business process outsourcing is an economic lifeline in the Philippines with over 1.15 million Filipinos working in the industry.

The industry, along with remittances from overseas workers, remains one of the top 2 earners of foreign exchange for the Philippines.

SUPER CITIES

Six cities from the Philippines, meanwhile, made it to the “Top 100 Super Cities,” with Manila placing second to Bengaluru in India.

The Philippine capital, which ranked fourth in 2017, is followed by the Indian city of Mumbai, which ranked third.

The rest of the Philippine cities included in the list all saw an improvement in their respective rankings.

Close to the top 10 is Cebu City, which ranked 11th from 12th last year, while President Rodrigo Duterte’s hometown Davao City went 10 notches higher to the 75th spot from 85th last year.

Santa Rosa City in Laguna rose to the 87th spot from 100th last year while Bacolod City climbed to the 89th spot from 97th in 2017.

The Visayan city of Iloilo, meanwhile, is a newcomer to the list, landing at the 92nd spot.

The index evaluates and ranks countries and cities based on availability and quality of talent in the area, business catalyst or the level of industry-related activity and organizational support, cost of doing business, infrastructure, innovation, and risk and quality of life among others.

PLATINUM CLUB:  yesterday I attended the AC Businessmen’s Luncheon and had a very enjoyable afternoon.  It was the first time I had visited this Club on Perimeter road and found it to be a place that I hope to return to real soon.  I liked the management, staff and dancers and was reminded  at how much I miss being able to do some bar hopping.  I miss meeting the owners, managers and yes, the Mamasans as well.  The food was provided by the VFW, soup, ribs, mash potatoes and green beans.  Loved the ribs and ended up pleasantly full.

CACTUS JACKS

Cactus Jacks Restaurant – Finally I got around to eating at this establishment after waiting to do so for a few months.  It was worth the wait as I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  It opens at 1200 hrs, closes at 2400 hrs.  Location:  Savers Mart building on MacArthur Hi-Way, Balibago.  Parking in the back.  OK, got those details out of the way.  My wife’s family members treated her for her birthday and naturally I went along as I did not have to pay.  What a treat it was and for sure we will go there again, even if I have to pay.  Food, super and a large varied selection.  We chose the monster board which is good for multiple people to share.  It allows for two appetizers, two meats from the menu plus a bunch of other condiments, sauces, etc.  The cost as listed on the menu.  Separately I ordered the USDA Angus Rib Eye 400 grams with bone (P1,419) and boneless chicken wings.  I am going to try and get some pictures in here, if not, well, check out the place, you won’t be disappointed.  Oh here is a tip for the older guys they offer fresh oysters in the shell, 6 for P345 and 12 for P630; yeah, I know, a box of the blue pills are cheaper and I think the oyster thing is a myth anyway.
For songbirds Singer Queen Halili is on board to serenade you and also invite you to sing some songs of your choice.  Queen Halili is a relative of deceased popular past Mayor of Mabalacat, Fred Halili, a man I was honored to know personally.
The decor of Cactus Jacks if a mix of western and Mexican.  The menu reflects the decor and there is something for everyone.

Chilli’s at SM Clark – I ate lunch there again yesterday and again, I am telling one and all, if you have not visited the place yet, get your butts over there ASAP.  It is FANTASTIC!  If you can’t get there just get in touch with me and I will drive you there, it will only cost you a meal for me.  I know, I am too kind.

BAR NEWS:  Finnegans, previously Porky’s may be closing soon due to lack of business.  Ice Bar has 2 new owners who have made a few interior changes and doubled the female staff thereby experiencing a big increase in business.  It is very popular now, so much so, that I will have to try and get there on my own.  So far, word of mouth has reached me about its new popularity.

FIELDS AVE WALKING STREET –  Sure, “walking street” – Hey, Mr. Mayor, it is one of the worse streets to walk on in Angeles City!  I do not know how much was spent to try to fix it with some fancy stone work a couple years ago but someone must have stole the money.  It is terrible, full of holes, easy to trip and fall and it looks like hell.  I tried to visit there using my walker not too long ago and it was very frustrating and dangerous.  I made it as far as Kokomo’s and gave up.  I went around to Real Street and from there back to Fields Ave.  This street needs a complete make-over so it becomes a true “walking street”.  Right now I think it is an embarrassment to City Hall.

 SMOKING BAN – Hey, how is that working out?  It would be nice if it was enforced equally.  I have had reports of some bars allowing smoking while those who follow the law suffer loss of customers and money.  Anyone who encounters a bar allowing in-door smoking and is upset,  just send me the name of the establishment and I will not hesitate to post the info here.

PARKING FEES – Suddenly, the City Government is imposing parking fees in certain areas of the City.  I do not have the list of the areas but I do know of the location on Fields Ave from Phillie’s on down and also around Angeles University especially in the street behind the the school.  It would be nice to have these areas posted publicly.  Maybe this money will be used to repair the walking street (smile).

Please note that I did post something in “Political Rants”.  I have been restraining myself  on my political thoughts and social events in the US but I am starting to lose control.  There is far too much hatred in the US now and a note to late night talk show hosts, you all do not come close to the quality of Johnny Carson.

HILLARY LOSES SECURITY CLEARANCE

 – The Washington Times – Friday, October 12, 2018

Hillary Clinton has given up her security clearance in the wake of the scandal over her handling of secret information on her email server, the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed Friday.

Chairman Charles E. Grassley also revealed top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and four others no longer have clearance.

Mrs. Clinton’s clearance expired at the end of August. The others lost their access privileges in September.

The State Department, in a letter to Mr. Grassley, had said Mrs. Clinton and her aides retained clearance in order to conduct research after she left office.

The names of the four additional aides besides Ms. Mills were redacted from the State Department letter that the committee released.

JOSIE-HI

HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN – For me and many other old loyal customers of the Thi-Hi.  Many of you know that this was my favorite bar to go to since the day it opened.  The owner, Deery, from Las Vegas, NV was a bit of a character that everyone enjoyed talking and teasing.  He ran a bar with no dancing girls but his waitresses were super friendly and wore sexy attire.  The music was never loud and featured sounds from the 50’s to the present.  Sadly Derry left us for the local cemetery and his long time manager, Josie kept the place going.  Regretfully, over the years through mis-management and lack of funds the place ended up close to bankruptcy.  Different people tried to help her as no one wanted to see the placed closed or taken over by Koreans.
A few months ago I reported that two friends of mine were looking into buying the place.  One, American, Bill, and the other Conrad, a true Hawaiian who visits here frequently.  Like me, they did not want to see the place close or change hands.  I am happy to say that only a couple of weeks ago, they made Josie an offer she could not refuse and two great guys who want Thi-Hi to return to the days of old.  I visited it last Wed and was so happy to learn that Bill is on board and is slowly making changes.  New ladies have been hired and for the first time in months, the staff are being paid on a regular basis.  Changes are gradually being implemented starting with cleaning up the place and initiating a no shorts policy. The staff will be back in skirts and dresses with friendliness a priority.  The new name is THI-HI 2 OHANA LOUNGE.   The “OHANA” in Hawaii means “family” and folks, that is the theme, to welcome back all the customers who for so long belonged to the Thi-Hi family.  As I wrote at the beginning, “happy days are here again”.  hope to see you there soon.

MARK DIZON UPDATE

Before I get into a bit of personal news, let me give a quick update on our nasty serial killer, Mark Dizon.  Yes, justice is slow in the Philippines.  His murder trial is not over yet; in fact, the prosecution just finished up a bit over a week ago.  Now, it is time for the defense.  What a bloody joke, the asshole’s defense is that he was not at the Mitchell house on the night of the murders.  This could hold up with the other two murders he committed as there were no witnesses.  Hopefully this is not the case with the Mitchell murders.  The Prosecution is pushing for a life sentence without parole.  Now I do have a bit of feeling for Mark.  Yes, I feel like I would like to skip all this bull shit and just be allowed to cut one of his main arteries and let him slowly bleed to death while I shot him in various parts of his body until death do him part.  Wouldn’t that be a terrific video to put on google or you tube.  Shit, I just realized that the left wing face book, google, you tube and twitter censors will delete it.  Oh well, just join me in my sadistic imagination.

PERSONAL NOTE:  Last Sunday evening I was sitting in the stable trying to watch a pirated Executioner 2 movie knowing it would not be a good copy.  I was angry as I went to SM on that Wednesday and at the ticket booth I learned that Tuesday was the last showing.  I was pissed!  OK, a better, more polite word would be extremely disappointed.  When halfway through this less than clear copy I suddenly became extremely dizzy and weak.  I tried to use my cell phone to call my wife but could not think right or get my fingers working properly.  Finally, I got it to ring, but unattended.  Desperately I tried to call my brother in law and this was not easy to do but somehow got it to ring.  I did not hear any answer and later I found out that is when I passed out.  The next thing I knew two people were carrying me down the stairs to my car and straight to the Medical City Clark emergency room.  By this time I was conscious and wanted to turn around and go home.  Bottom line is I had a seizure and am still having some tests made.  I did not stay overnight in the hospital even though, as usual, they try to use the “observation” money maker on you.  My wife had told me at the hospital that I had urinated in my pants.  That was embarrassing but when we go home and I got out of the car my wife noticed that the back of my pants had a pronounced dark brown coloring.  The next day she had the car seat fumigated.  Now, why the hell am I relating all this to you?  I am a certified senior citizen that has made it to 80 years of age and have had a minor stroke a year or so ago, a very slight seizure while sitting on the toilet 2 months ago in which I had to call for help and missed a meeting at the businessmen’s luncheon.  Now, this last one has scared me a bit as i have been a week getting over it.  I can’t help but wonder what is next but at the same time I am so happy to still be around and not bed ridden or lying in a casket full of embalming fluid.
Now, you know why I do not get around as much as I used to.  I am thankful that I am not living on my own without the help of a loving family.  I hate the fact that I am very familiar with the local emergency room and hope that I can continue to avoid the ICU department.  For those readers who have reached their senior years and find that our bodies sort of mess with us with no notice I certainly share the uncertainty of each passing day.  A seizure is a strange malady and one that makes you feel wonderful to recover from.  I no longer worry about typhoons, bills, deadlines, and do not want any anger in my life, even when talking to Democrats.  Rain or shine every day is a good day.  I have always wrote that you should be nice to old horses and by golly many of you have been over the years.  So, I will keep writing but a little less and I am appreciative of all the new subscribers.  Old friends are joining me and Teflon John, this is not a “mass text”.

MAXINE WATERS – Can someone tape her mouth closed!  OK, I know, now someone will suggest the same for Trump.  OK, see how agreeable I am now, better than dealing with ANTIFA.

TRANSGENDERS – I am definitely too old to figure this one out!  Just read that 8 year old school boys who identify as girls can now get the privates bounded as part of their transformation.  I guess little 8 year old girls that identify as boys get mini-dildo’s attached.  They can all still shit but pissing has to be a bit of a mess.

That’s it, I’m going to bed and looking forward to another day – Hey Tommo, rest in peace, Joe Carseley too.

Ian (Tommo) Thomas

Sadly, the legendary Tommo passed away at the Medical City Clark ICU unit this morning from a heart attack.  A few weeks ago Tommo fell from the top deck of his boat and suffered multiple breaks to his body.  He had been at Medical City ICU for a while and it was hoped that he would be able to recover in due time.  He put up a good fight because he was always strong and determined to enjoy life to its fullest.  The injuries were just too much for his heart   Whether you liked him or not, he was a fair man and could be a great friend but he could be difficult as well.  His great love was his boat and his last memory would have been that last fateful day on that boat.  He will be missed by many.  His body now lies at Olongapo Memorial Chapel.

JOSIE-HI – This favorite bar of mine has been sold and will soon be under new management.  I do not know the details but I am glad that the sale has gone through as, financially, it was close to having to close due to lack of funds.  Many customers, including myself, are happy to see it given new life.  I think old Deery is smiling from his resting place in the Clark cemetery.

All for now –  I want to thank the many new subscribers to this blog.  Many of you were with me as Harry the Horse and I always enjoyed hearing from you and loved it when you visited me at “The Stable”.  I am still available to greet you and if not here, then you might find me at Envy Sports Bistro and Suites just before the walking street entrance.  I want to thank Ray, a visitor from Germany who was a long time reader of my old column and now the new one.  I had not seen him for a few years and it was fun to catch up with his adventures.

Hey, my son Jason is now stationed at Schofield Barracks, Oahu, Hawaii.  He will be 20 years old on 31 Oct and Mrs Horse will fly there to celebrate with “her baby”.  What is it with Moms, , you could be 30 years old, married and still be her “baby”.  I will not go with her, too difficult for me to get around.  Next year I will go to Las Vegas for a couple of weeks for medical check-ups and then on to Hawaii to celebrate his 21st with him.  I will look forward to that.

Remember, be kind to horses.

SAY HELLO TO STACY

It is time for me to present another one of the beautiful waitresses from the Envy Bistro Sports Suite.  Her name is Stacy, 21 years old with a 5’6″ height.  Her personality is such that even if you go in for an early breakfast feeling a bit tired, her smile will wake you up.

Soon a new menu will be published with slightly higher prices due to the increase in the minimum wage and yes, again,  to cope with higher fuel prices.  The waitresses at Envy are recipients of all benefits required by the labor department.  Check out Envy, you might get lucky and have Stacy on duty.  By the way, she is single.

 

 

 

WHITE SOUTH AFRICA – BY MICHAEL SAVAGE

2 AUG 2018

I am posting this article from Savage because months ago I read about what was going on in South Africa and Zimbabwe and was wondering why I never saw anything on the TV news stations.  I remembered when all of America protested and boycotted when against apartheid but now that whites are being slaughtered no one cares.  Strange! 

There is a genocide going on in South Africa as its leaders are set to change their constitution to legally steal white farmers’ lands and throw them out of the country.

Liberals may believe that this seizure is just, but I should caution you as to what happened when this was done in Rhodesia. Now known as Zimbabwe, Rhodesia was very similar to South Africa. Before localization occurred, Rhodesia was primarily a black nation. The Rhodesians, meaning under Cecil Rhodes, conquered the land, colonized the land, and started to farm the land. The white farmers were so productive that they were able to not only feed the people of Rhodesia, but exported to the world. Then along came Robert Mugabe, the criminal, mass murderer, who preached the same kind of hatred that’s being preached in South Africa today.

Mugabe and his cohorts kicked the whites off the land in Rhodesia, renamed it Zimbabwe so it had a local, native name. Soon thereafter, the farms all failed and Rhodesia became a basket case begging on the world stage for food.

Unfortunately, the African people have not learned from history and they’re repeating this travesty because they’re kicking the whites off the land in South Africa. Behind this movement is a prominent and close associate of none other than the great Nelson Mandela, the god of gods to the liberal class.

Murders are increasing as they’re slaughtering men, women, children, and infants in front of the mothers and mothers in front of infants. These criminals are raping the women in front of their fathers on the farms.

Now of course, you haven’t heard any of this from CNN or MSNBC. Not even Fox News will run it, but I’ll bring it to light because this is a genocide occurring in front of our eyes.

In fear of what is to come, farmers are trying to leave South Africa before they are slaughtered. Australia has granted refuge to white farmers both in the Mandela era and now. In response, liberals screamed that Australia was racist for granting refuge to white farmers inferring that they should have stayed there to be butchered.

These farmers have also appealed to Russia seeking to resettle. A delegation consisting of some 30 South African farming families arrived in Russia’s farm belt region asking the local authorities to consider resettling up to 15 white farmers or Boers as they are known colloquially. Speaking to RT, the head of the delegation said, “Moving to Russia is a matter of life and death.” The region’s Deputy Commissioner for human rights Vladimir Poluboyarenko said, “There is a plan in place to resettle up to 50 Boer families and potentially some 500 families who would arrive in Russia with their own cattle.”

Do you realize that we are going to witness an exodus equal to that of the Bible when the Jews were forced to flee to Babylon? Do you understand we’re living through biblical times? While the mainstream media, even the conservative media, is transfixed with Mueller, Manafort, and collusion, they choose to ignore this shocking abuse of human rights. No, my friends, you won’t see this on tonight’s news because as we’ve learned it doesn’t fit the narrative.

SPACE-A TRAVEL OUT OF CLARK

The Philippine Air Force high command for some reason is pissing on US military retirees seeking Space-A travel out of Clark.  I have refrained from writing about this when it first started but now, after their latest directive making it nearly impossible to use Space-A. I figured it is best to pass on the latest policy. My advice for anyone coming to Angeles City with hope of traveling out of here via Space-A -FORGET ABOUT IT!

Good Afternoon,. Resending the schedule in hopes that you are able to open the attachment. The DoD has implemented strict measures on sending attachments outside DoD Channels. Therefore, I may have to use alternate means to get the future schedules properly distributed.

On another note, JUSMAG/U.S. Embassy just advised us this morning that effective immediately the Philippine Air Force has implemented another change to the base access policy. Due to an overwhelming number of Space-A passengers submitting requests for base access. They are requiring JUSMAG/U.S. Embassy endorsement letters to accompany all requests. JUSMAG/U.S. Embassy cannot currently support the new policy and therefore has requested to cease all Space-A base access requests until further notice. Passengers who have already submitted and received an approval are good to go. However, No new requests are permitted until a resolution can be done. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

SOON TO OPEN

HARRY THE HORSE – BE KIND TO VERY OLD HORSES!

Hi folks, just about time for me to head for bed but decided to chat a bit with my friends first.  I always get excited when I learn that a new eatery is opening close to my Stable so I do not have to travel far to sample the goods.  I especially like it when people I know and respect are involved.  I received the following Email (yes, I still use Email, not just FB and Messenger).

This is Detroit Al (Al Konkolesky).  How have you been?  I’ve been busy at RBI Steakhouse (A great place well worth visiting)  Right now we are getting the new Sandwich Shop & Deli up and running and hope to have it open by early next month. It will be in the old Frontera Restaurant, and I will be running it.  The name will be Blanchette’s American Style Deli and Bakery.  We will be serving breakfast and lunch, along with a deli case and dessert counter.  We will have a bakery in the back and will be making American style desserts and breads.

HT H – Detroit Al is a good friend of mine who helped me put my HTH column on line each month.  He also worked at the Wild Orchid for a bit of time before going over  to the RBI Steakhouse located at the Queens Hotel.  He is well known and a good guy to know, for sure he will be a great asset at Blanchette’s.  When I get a specific date for the opening I will let you know.  Oh, forgot, where is it located – not far from me, along Perimeter Road just near the Clark middle gate.

This afternoon I was sitting at my favorite outdoor seat at Envy meeting new people and old friends when a reader of my old column, from Las Vegas, Dieter saw me and greeted me.  He had not been in Angeles City for five years and was amazed at the changes.  He had just been to Smile Makeover for treatment by Dr. Irene who he booked because of my recommendation here.  He even had his daughter treated as well.  The real reason I am mentioning this is because he married a young lady that he met at my Stable who was there with a couple visiting for lunch.  He was in love with her at first sight, she reciprocated, they married, now have 3 children and live happily in Las Vegas.  I thought it was a nice story and so sorry I did not have my camera with me.   I can find my tourist of the month again, and maybe, just maybe, a “I would if I could”.Needless to say, from now on I will return to my old ways of having my camera, pen and notepad with me at all times, especially when sitting outside of Envy.  My one good eye affirms that it is a great place to watch, and maybe meet some attractive ladies, in passing.  (Priscilla, I only WATCH).

Really late now.  Time for bed, but wait, just two more comments.  Will England win this Wednesday at the World Cup and progress?  Will Pacquio win his fight?  Ok, yes, those were questions, not comments.  Any predictions?  Goodnight again!

DOUG SLADE UPDATE

DOUG SLADE – Even though Doug Slade (Previous owner of Home Base here in Angeles City was extradited a few years ago by British Law Enforcement and sentenced to 24 years in jail, his problems are not over.  Here is an update published by the London Bulletin:

“From the London Bulletin – Paedophile Douglas Slade Being Sued In London High Court By Filipino Victims In Landmark Case

 

Crime News – Comment Box @ end of story•

Wednesday, Jun 27, 2018, 7:55 AM

Douglas (Dougie) Slade, the Aylesbury and Bristol child molesting pervert who was finally brought to justice in a British court, is now being sued in the High Court in London by some of his victims from the Philippines.

Douglas Slade, 77, who was finally convicted in Bristol Crown Court on historical sex crimes charges against British boys, had always escaped justice in Angeles City in the Philippines over child sex charges by the simple expedient of bribing his way out of trouble.

Circuit Judge Euan Ambrose jailed Slade for 24 years 2 years ago after he was found guilty of 13 charges of abusing five children, the youngest only 10, between the 1960’s and 1980’s.

That case had kept Avon and Somerset’s police waiting patiently for years to activate until an extradition treaty between the UK and Philippines was signed and then ratified.

Now a legal team of solicitor Alan Collins (Hugh James Solicitors) and barrister Justin Levinson (1 Crown Office Row Chambers), who are experts in representing victims of child sex abuse with a long track record of success, have ensured Slade is now to face the prospect of losing his fortune as well as his liberty.

The lawyers have headed up an investigation into all aspects of Slade’s activities on behalf of 5 Filipino victims of him that went to the High Court in London. Starting with preparatory hearings in front of a Master, this went to a preliminary hearing in front of a Judge last week who has now set the full hearing to start on 9th October, with 3 days set aside for it. Slade, now imprisoned on the Isle of Wight in Albany jail, had appeared via video link for the hearings in front of the Master but for the hearing in front of a judge he refused to leave his cell. ”

For more details please search out the London Bulletin article.  Home Base continues to operate but I do not know who has taken control of it.  I never bothered to research further after Doug was extradited and convicted.  He was arrested many times here in the Philippines and in each case was able to bribe his way out of jail.  Google Douglas Slade and you will see videos posted in which he sort of brags about being able to pay off complainants.  Is this the last chapter for Doug Slade or just the beginning of a new drama.  How in the world will the Filipino complainants ever gain any money from their efforts to sue?  Usually it is the lawyers that get the cream off the top.
