China agrees South China Sea talks amid new row with Manila


Hello friends, straight the Big House a very good morning to you folks. Smiling is a sign of good mood. Laughter is a sign of happiness. Praying is a sign of good faith. God bless you all.  Once you have learned to love; that you are, what you do, and those around you, you will have truly learned to live. Search for love, for
it is the most important ingredient of life.  Without it, your life will echo emptiness.  With it, your life will vibrate with warmth and meaning. Even during any hardship, love will shine through. Do you remember when your Grandmother use to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Now, her granddaughters set theirs on a window sill to thaw.

To move money on foot is foolish, even for a few blocks. Unfortunately, bank security guards will only be there to help if you are still pretty near the bank. They’d have to get permission to escort you and, you’d have to pay for their time. For 1 or 2million peso, I don’t think a robber would care much about a security guard. Look at some of the political killings around Manila; those guys are surrounded by body guards. Banks routinely arrange armored transport for sums lower than that for local merchants. Armored cars with guards are a dime a dozen around here in the large cities. I’m sure it could have been arranged for a fee. Nevertheless, asking the buyer to pay with a bank check saves all the hassle.

China agrees South China Sea talks amid new row with Manila

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Reuters) – China agreed to hold formal talks with Southeast Asian nations on a plan to ease maritime tensions on Sunday as the Philippines accused it of causing “increasing militarization” of the South China Sea, one of Asia’s naval flashpoints. The rebuke by Philippine Foreign Minister Albert del Rosario at a regional summit in Brunei came a day after China’s state media warned of an inevitable “counterstrike” against the Philippines if it continued to provoke Beijing. Friction between China and the Philippines over disputed territories has surged since last year due to several naval stand-offs as China asserts its vast claims over the oil and gas rich sea.

The heated rhetoric came as both China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) claimed progress in efforts to agree a mechanism aimed at defusing naval tensions.

  3. It is one of the best party towns of Asia, so if any one wants to
    spend a night in a night club or at any discotheque
    or at a simple restro-bar then Hong Kong will never let you down with your expectations.
    The facilities and services of the luxury hotels in Vancouver are of a caliber that they can
    be easily compared to the high class hotels famous the world over.

    cases, when older aircraft are being operated.
