He's their Trump.

He'll say whatever he wants, when he wants.

Time will tell.

The two bases, Clarke and Subic Bay, were closed long ago. I'm not sure about this banter about closing bases? Sure, there are a few American soldiers there as trainers so the story goes.

The Philippines wants the foreign aide the US gives, and now wants some money from China and Russia. It's all about the money. When they kicked us out of Subic Bay they actually asked about continued payment of the rent/lease and help with the transition.

Doc, I actually only have one chip, from City of Dreams. I'll try and post a picture of it out of respect for your efforts.

The dealers and box people and cashiers and ticket sellers were all Filipino. There were a few "suits" walking around but I'm sure they are busy at the high limit baccarat rooms.

At City of Dreams, there is a "Poker Stars" managed poker room. I say managed, perhaps an over statement, but certainly a Poker Stars venue with tournaments scheduled and promoted.

Room rates online and restaurant prices are way over the top. I don't know how to get them reasonable. My average bet of $100.usd, four hour session, only got me coffee shop style meals, which were as I say menu wise ridiculous prices. The New York "Wolfgang" steakhouse at Resorts world set me back $150.usd with only two drinks, salad and a huge steak(US beef). It was packed full of Filipino diners.

So some ordinary Filipinos must think the way he does..




The key remains.....find a urine soaked concrete wall(there are many), lean up against it and beat your own head on it...at that point you will be thinking like the ordinary Filipino does. Repeat the process as soon as you start to realize what's going on around you.

Thanks. I'll look forward to it. Be sure to tell us about the casino and your experiences there when you post the image of the chip.

NokTang: Your ridiculing of Filipino people is interesting since I would assume from your chosen name that you are Asian. Maybe you subscribe to the imperial view of the hierarchy of human beings as did the Japanese circa 1940. I guess you can't complain too much if someone talks down your particular brand of ethnicity since you do so much of the same thing yourself.
everybody wants to go to heaven. but nobody wants to die.

Not sure what you are on about....I didn't ridicule anyone Filipino or otherwise. It's an interesting country, you do in fact need to beat your own head against a urine soaked wall to get with the program. Unwilling to do it? No big deal. I made several new Philippine friends in the casino and outside it.
