I'm pretty sure the booze will be sold on June 1st and from what others here have shared I guess I'd better stock up and it'll be another shortage and long wait for beer.
I got 3 beers left and no I'm not sharing lol.

How many of the little sarisari stores that stopped selling to the public actually stopped selling to their friends and those with extra peso to pay?

we have a way of getting to S&R Nuvali but it does not include me as yet !
our Barangay checkpoints have got more stricter this week ! but as is normal the rules do not apply to certain people .
Guess this must depend on where you are. Friday I drove from home (Mandurriao) through Molo and on into Iloilo City proper and encountered no checkpoints at all so it must depend on the LGU's as to what checkpoints they have set up.

Yeah, I went from Oton to Iloilo with no checkpoints. Only 20 kms but technically province to city. The border had been secured and there were checkpoints just to get into Oton proper. Now, no checkpoints. The governor said that starting on the 1st we will have unrestricted travel to any point within the province. Time for a trip? Ha ha... maybe not yet...

This says the opposite:

Quote:
Quarantine passes will no longer be required in areas under general community quarantine starting next month, the Department of the Interior and Local Government said Thursday as the government prepared to further ease COVID-19 restrictions across the country.


The DILG, however, clarified that crossing borders would still require a travel pass from the Philippine National Police.


President Duterte is set to decide on Thursday night community quarantine protocols to take effect starting June 1. - https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/05/28/...ng-june-1-dilg

Is that GCQ? We just ended our GCQ and are now MGCQ (modified). Our trikes and sikads are one passenger only. But, no more quarantine pass. If a local market wants to limit barangays to certain days - any government ID with address will suffice. I have not yet tested that theory in my town... but that what it the provincial governor say.

This is our first day in the GCQ and I bought two cases of San Miguel Light cans and my wife bought two bottles of red wine.
