Hi guys, I am new here.. My friends and I are going on an overnight stay in Canoe Beach Resort this October. The day after, we would like to proceed to Subic and visit Zoobic, Treetop and Duty Free. Problem is, I read that taxi rates are high (400 one way), packages are for 12 persons up and include manila-subic-manila rates. Is it really advisable to rent a car/van for our trip? Or can anyone advise me how to commute from the SBMA gate to the aforementioned locations and back.. Help please =) Thanks!

I'm an American ExPat in his early 60's and retired.
I am not "rich Kano" but I would like to relocate to the RP, in particular, Subic/OC as it is far too expensive to live anywhere in the US on my modest Pension.
I have made several trips to Subic and OC and I love it there and want to make it my home for the rest of my life.
I'm seeking a SECURE, 1BD, 1 CR, with flushable toilet, and basic furnishings such as a bed, couch, rice cooker, TV, etc...
I would also require AirCon.
Hot water would be nice, but not necessary.
Internet access via DSL or faster is a desirable.
It could be a small house, an apt, a duplex, etc...except for a Nipa Hut or a share rental.(Bedspace, etc...)
I will be living there alone, unless I end up married to one of the many beautiful Filipina's I always see when I visit the the RP islands.
Depending on the area and the condition of the rental, my price range for the rental is between 7,000PhP - 11,250PhP per month, 12 Month Minimum, to be paid monthly by the 3rd of each month.
I will also pay a reasonable cleaning deposit and the last month's rent in advance.
I am seeking something fairly quiet, but close to downtown OC or preferably, Barrio Barreto near The National Highway in Subic
Last time I was in Subic (2008) there was a lot of new home Construction/Subdivisions and Apts. being built.
Pictures and details along with the address of the rental can be emailed to email@example.com
I have many ExPAt friends in Subic/Olongapo that can drive to the rental and, with your permission, take a look at it for me as I currently reside in the US but will re-locate to the RP as soon as suitable housing is obtained.
Please keep in mind that I am very neat and clean and will have a lady come in and help me clean 2-3x per week, as well as have a lady come in and cook 2-3x per week, and I'm also very quiet.
I am also very responsible, easy to get along with, and a model tenant.
You will wish all of your renter's were like me.
A parking space is not required, as I will travel via Trikes and Cabs and Walk for many of my outdoor activities, depending on where I will live.
AirCon, Cleanliness, Fairly Quiet, Secure and Accessible to "town" are the most important elements in my search.
Much thanks and "Mabuhay!"
Honest people, no need to read below - it is for crooks:
Scammers, forget it. I have heard and seen it all and I won't spend or send a single Centavo to anyone under any circumstances that I have not personally met them or have not previously done business with them, so don't bother wasting your time.
Again, Thank you and "Mabuhay!"
Does anybody experience to stay at this resort.
Any feedback will be appreciated.
I will treat in suprise my family and am considering this place.
thanks to all

Does anyone know which are the best bars to go barhopping in Olongapo?
I was wondering if you can help me out. I am a Filipino living in the States
for the last 37 years and trying to find some information regarding the Church I
was baptized in. According to my records, it says that I was baptized in a
church call St. Augustine. I have been searching using Google.com for this but
nothing has come up for any Churches named St. Augustine in Olongapo City. I
even went to the city's official website but no luck. Anyone can help
me out? If anything maybe a listing of Roman Catholic church's in Olongapo
City? It would be great if I can find some contact information.
I would be very grateful for your assistance. You may wonder why I am asking? I
am getting married soon and the Catholic Church here in the United States is
wishing to see a copy of my Baptismal Certificate.
I hope someday soon, I can make it back to Olongapo, my birthplace.
I thank you in advance.
