Hello from Manila

Hi to all at BLF. Amrod here from Manila in the Philippines. Nice and very informative forum.

i just wish there were more variety of lights to chose from here. Oh well looks like online purchases would be the best alternative.

More power to all.:)

DRY, ITP A3, Tk-703, E03, Aspheric DBS V3, Sanmak 5500 HID,Costco HID,  sc600, TK41, TK-40 and my reliable FJ-40. Love them all!Smile

There are a few of us pinoys here on BLF.  I was born in Olongapo and grew up in Baguio.  Did you spend your whole life in Manila?

Thanks, There are only a few stores in Manila you could get a quality light and mostly Only Surefire, maglite, petzl, black diamond are available inj gunshop and outdoor stores. I suggest buy online, it will depend on what battery type you will use, there several stores have free shipping like 4sevens, manafont, hkequipment, kaidomain, dealextreme, etc. I you need batteries I know a nice seller in manila, Waltcor sells items in ebay for the cheapest prices. got several eneloops from him.Smile
