The ratings war, which is your favourite Philippines TV channel?

1 post in this topic


As tried and seasoned expat veterans (or newcomers) in the land of balut, songs and smiles, which is your favourite Phils TV channel di ba ?

ABS-CBN or GMA ? Who do you back in the exciting ratings war ? :)

Here in Oman, my wife is definitely ABS-CBN. Mind you, that's the channel used by TFC (the Filipino Channel - Phils overseas tv). But she prefers it anyway over GMA.

Indeed why not, I just love trying to sleep at 2 in the morning while some loud variety show pumps out badly sung amateur karaoke for a prize of shampoo bottles. :yawn:

I should add that my wife likes to sleep with background noise, something to do with being brought up in Pasay, MM I guess. Me ? I'm a townie from Scotland who is more used to tranquil sounds at night, like my own snoring for instance !

      This Rental is a lot lower than other I have view. Can I know if there is anything I have to clarify with the agent before I commit. Is there any hidden subject in Singapore that one must clarify?


      Thanks in advance.

      Well I plan on a trip to Saigon some time in feb 2016. I plan on retiring soon so I have a pension and social security. Combined it should be  $1800.monthy. In Vietnam it should work out. We talked about children, although I love children, I've raised 4. She has no children and no parents. Her Parents have passed and left them a house in the country. She has a brother and sister both older. She watches the brothers 3 children as the brother and his wife reside in the same home. The older sister married, resides in Saigon. But we've agreed no children... So it will only be her and I. It's funny  we're still jockeying for position on where we should live. I wouldn't mind a change of pace living somewhere else.  Vietnam has its ups and downs but there's many good things, life is minimal,  I'm well aware of that,  but I've lived many places and in most need little to comfort me. Yet I realize Dai has a friend down the road from me. ( they introduced us).     saddle up!   Lol
