  • Best to know a place is to visit ofcourse. Some people may fall in love once they land on the Island some may hate it like myself. Personally i think Madeira is still very expensive in comparison to other holiday destinations within Europe, the sea …
  • It wasn't very cheap considering when we booked and paid for in full 6months in advance for a family of 4 well over 600pounds plus other hiden charges (they even charge for speed check in) and taxi to LGW airport and back if had flown from near home…
  • I have a life thank you. Sounds like you work for Easyjet. We travelled middle of August i don't recall bad weather at the time quite contrary was very humid, when one travels wether it's old person age or young child should be able to request a spe…
  • I would not leave my pets out of their leash at any time in the Island unless in one's private yard. I hear lots of pets have died due to poison or similar. I too am a local citizen but was fortunate to emigrate from the Island long ago, am very aga…
  • I guess the only place they will still have record of birth of you relatives will be the local camera (municipality) or in Funchal the capital. It's very upsetting when they remove the remains at the cemmetery after 10yrs and place someone else in. …
  • Having just returned from Madeira couldn't help noticing the amount of dogs on the streets in different parts of the Island, many hanging around the restaurants we frequented also our hotel, I was very sad and felt helpless. I am aware of the charit…
  • This person was around last year, am quite sure!?
  • Hi i cook my milho in similar way as above (just like my mum does): The water has to be just warm not hot, i add crashed few garlic heads, olive oil, pork lard or i personally like to use maggi cubes, with wooden spoon start mixing the cornmeal bit…

  • Try the tugas.co.uk site also.
  • Whenever i need to get mine i ask my local camera municipal and they just get me a photocopy of my birth details, find out whereabouts in the island she was born and her local camera municipal that's where her details are held.
  • Don't you just hate when they are called "DR"? I do. Lawyer or solicitor would be enough!
  • I like to cook them in curry small cubes instead of potatoes or other veg. Best to soak them in cold water after sliced before peeling so you don't get the sticky stuff on your skin. They grow just like pumpkins, very easy and low maintenance.

  • Ja' tentou a pagina dos tugas em inglaterra pode ser que alguem o possa ajudar www.tugas.co.uk
  • This is one reazon the uk is flooded with foreigners, so easy to get into benefits and housing, very little restrictions or questions asked. I am from Madeira but i am not proud of such people that give us a bad name in the UK specially. Europe as o…
  • Madeira is a very small place specially Santa Cruz, if this guy does have his own groceries business and has lived in Sout Africa before anyone in the area would know him. A visit to the island would be best option in my opinion. Best of luck.
  • The latest, please read on. http://www.arabtimesonline.com/client/pagesdetails.asp?nid=2196&ccid=9
  • Personally i hate the gold stuff, i love anything silver, white gold, stones and i know lots of people that do to. That's a very nice idea. I see lots of people in some other cities that have their own stall in the shopping malls and mini markets,sc…
  • Probably fast food would be best. I noticied when i visited Madeira about 7yrs ago there was no fast food, specially in Santa cruz my kids hated the idea of not having Mac donnalds or smilar but am sure it has changed since then, has it? I noticied …
  • Nothing to do with humour, there is a big diference being polite and vulgar, he even had a thread about dogs, if i was looking for a laugh i would choose other forums.
  • I only knew one family called Ribeiro from Gaula, Santa Cruz and they emigrated to brazil mid 70s. Do search in Santa Cruz they have websites with the local council 'camera de santa cruz" were they have from registry of birth/marriage etc might find…
  • Well, let me tell you that i am portuguese and some of the text he has used in this forum in the past only the lowest of the lowest people uses such language, like flies in rats as they say. HE/she/it may sound okay to you but very vulgar for me pe…
  • Yeh, 'IT' has been quiet for a while, something i have noticed though 'IT' never comments on the lady's club thread?!
  • I heard that mourinho had critised Ronaldo recently and called him a liar,bad mannered person and that he comes from a poor background, not sure in the press or media, did any of you hear anything? Not sure what's mourinho's problem, don't know many…
