    What I think or what anyone else thinks about it doesnt matter.

    Btw, my comments are nothing personal at you SP.
    No offense taken, DG. I like to think that I am generous (and I probably end up paying more than most guys), but I hate being ripped off.

    I have checked here, in France, they cost about 28 euros in pharmacy or about 18 euros on internet.

    I understand from RTFF here that we can buy them on the ground there for may be lower cost?

    What would your advice? Should I buy them when I will arrive? In pharmacies? Or where can we find them?

    And are they easy to be found everywhere or mainly in Manila? I can have one night stop in Makati when I arrive? Or airport?
    I personally don't know about pharmacy over the counter hiv tests. Bettter to be safe and bring them yourself. Then you can find out if they available here and the cost for next time.

    I suppose there is a market for an '86 Honda Accord. Some guys like a high mileage, well-worn interior with that musty old-car smell, even if newer models are available for a third of the price. And there is value in the convenience of "point and click" shopping where it is delivered to your front door. Who knows, maybe it was rainy that day and the buyer preferred not to go out and inspect cars first-hand? Or maybe he didn't know where the new car lots were located and it wasn't worth his time researching it.

    But both parties were happy with the transaction, and that's what matters - even if she would have let him have it for $2000 instead of $6000.

If you tell them they could have gone on hotels.com to get the room cheaper instead of going to the hotel's website, then nobody gets mad and says it is nobody's business how much I give the Hilton. They just try the cheaper website the next time.
    It has to do with the fact that the nature of the criticism is different. When a guy overpays for pussy, the criticism is often not "constructive" but more "angry" or laced with "ridicule" in that other mongers accuse the overpaying one of driving up the cost of pussy for everybody. Whereas, when it comes to the price of a hotel room, those who are getting the lower rate on the cheaper website don't get angry with the overpayer because they don't perceive that the former is costing them any money. They continue to believe that regardless of what the other guy is paying, they will still be able to get the same room at a lower price, and that the hotel isn't going to start yanking lower priced rooms from the low cost website because some guys are out there paying more by going directly to the hotel's individual site. In other words, unlike with the cost of pussy (and rightly or wrongly I don't know), no connection is made between what the guy overpaying for a hotel room is charged versus what another monger can get the same room for. The consequence is an extra dose of vitriol when it comes to allegedly overpaying for the pussy, and thus the often defensive and / or angry reaction of the overpayer. Every action yields an equal and opposite reaction LOL!

    It's not worth talking about. It's long gone. Better to stay focused on the "now" . You seem to be having a good time in PI. Stay on the roll!

    This site has a very simple purpose: contribute help and advice to increase fellow visitor's enjoyment (and to a degree, literal bang for your buck). There are over 6,000 posts in this forum alone that deal with where to go, what to expect, what to pay.

    Whilst no one would reasonably expect any member to read every contribution, by simply going back 10-15 pages, you get a barometer for "norms". And it's important to call out, where visitors have overpaid (if mitigating circumstances have not been explained) because other newbs will come in, read the forum and start to think this kind of pricing is de rigueur.

    If that's being the "pricing police", well shit, somebody swear me in.
    People contribute their reports. Plain and simple. You can take what you want to use or not.

    I don't understand why you or anyone else would give a peso over what someone paid? MYOP. Mind your own pesos.

    I certainly don't need any help from the poon pricing police.

    Btw, most of you all poon price police have already sworn your self appointed dicks in. Probably should make some paper badges to wear.

    Diffidently it's correct that it's any one's money and he have his right to do what he wanted even he gone nuts or ripped off. But I would say the real point has been over looked about the post of Mr. TenaliRaman. This dude referred a particular site, a particular person and described how he enjoyed with her. This dude using this site just to promote a girl with a set price.

    No need for anyone to try to explain it to me. Time is money to me. Some have more time than money. Some have more money than time. I have heard the theory of upsetting the market which is plain bs.
    I hear what you are saying and I dislike the ISG self appointed price police as much as anyone. Yeah, I believe in the "it's your money, Spend it anyway you please" theory of behaviour. So I would never chastise a fellow punter for going to Airforce 1 and dropping 20,000. It is his money and if he had a good time; rock on!. On the other hand, if he had a bad manager in AF1 and was taken advantage of and he didn't get his money's worth, then he was ripped off. Plain & simple. It happens. Likewise, if a fellow punter drops by LA Cafe and takes a 30 something girl out of the bar and pays her asking price of 8,000 for LT; I think he is crazy. Get my point? In each venue there is a market range of prices. A smart punter can get knowledgeable about the price range before he even walks into the venue by RTFF.
