    This weekend on the way to the supermarket we were held up by traffic caused by the shooting of a man, on the way back by traffic caused by the funeral procession of his son, shot before. If you worry about being shot in the Philippines you would get nothing done! (A legacy of their previous colonial masters I am afraid).

    I'm going to Cebu in a couple of weeks...lots of homemade firearms there, and they cost less than airsoft guns do in HK. These guns end up all over the Philippines. I bet the .22 used was made in Cebu.

    Makati Greenbelt is the best....just been there. If you want cheap stuff go to greenhills. They don't normally broadcast that place in your usual tourist handbook.

    Actually there are over 7000 islands not 3.
