hi mga sis, sana may makatulong sa MIL ko. pinapaalis na kasi sila sa bahay sa san leandro kasi ibebenta na daw yung bahay at may buyer na. eh wala na nga binibigay yung govt. (permanent disability), minsan $800 in a week na lang. from food hanggang utilities dun kukunin. hays.... nagwo-worry kami para sa kanila kasi wala naman sila pangdown sa ngayon....

we used to live in san diego pero that was way back 2002 pa.  the weather is nice, and lots of stuff to do especially if u have kids. nami-miss ko na din CA kaya lang with the recession right now mahirap bumalik. i've heard na lots of people are moving out of CA and FL because of unemployment.

^^yes sis... got your PM. thanks...

ang hirap pag hindi namin mapuntahan. hays.. madami kasi sila 4 SIL/BIL ko, then yung MIL ko pa na disabled, then yung asawa nya at isang kapatid.

magkano ba range ng bahay dun? wala talaga ako idea eh. sabi 1K pataas daw? ano ba terms sa CA? gaya ba sa pinas?

Welcome to US of A ChaCha!!!  :)  Ako everytime babalik dito from Phils jetlag ako ng isang linggo.  Enjoy!  The best ang weather dito sa Southern California.  Yang mga stores na yan ang magiging bestfriend mo pag wala kang magawa sa bahay.  Good luck sa life mo dito!!

Sis baby michael.. baka naman pwede post mo dito pag nagbukas na ang Jollibee.  Hindi ako San Diego area pero madalas kami sa Carlsbad Outlets. Syempre pa.  :)  Dadayuhin ko talaga ang Jollibee na yun.  Ang saya!  TIA.  :)

hi! katatapos ko lang mamalantsa, hay! hindi pa rin ako antok...

anyway, itinuro kanina sa kin ni hubby un pagtatayuan ng Jollibee, lapit nga rin sa place namin. nag apply na pala kami kanina ng SSN. sayang, sarado ang DMV pala every Fridays..we were also able to attend mass at St.marys..sasamantalahin na habang vacation pa si hubby from work.

nagColdstone kami kanina, me bayad pala ang dine in dun...buy uli kami sa walmart ng iba pa kelangan...wag daw muna ko mamili ng damit dun dahil baka me makita pa ko iba mas maganda sa mall..I find the items there mura kasi..

tell me tips naman where to buy the cheapest things...like sa drinks daw they prefer sa Cosco mamili..etc etc..seafood city, Target etc..clueless

will i ever learn to drive here? i mean, back in the Philis, I drive my own car, pero dito, parang lito ako s mga directions, parang nakakawindang...

Hi sis, I'm in San Leandro. Na repossess ba ang bahay ng MIL mo or is it just an apartment? An apartment unit here costs around $1,200 and up. Pero kung marami sila, they probably need a 3BR unit which is around $2,000 a month.

^Hi sis, Apartment yun. Ibebenta na daw ng mayari. wala na ko balita kung ano plan nila. kasi wala rin kami maitulong. ayaw naman lumipat ng arizona kasi may anak pa na nagaaral at nagwork din. :)

5BR ata yung ngayon kasi as in madami sila.
