I don't know how available they are on Bohol, but to me 12 volt halogen lights are the most beautiful form of lighting made.  You can point them directly at a subject for intense light or bounce them against your ceiling for ambiance.  It really creates great effects.

Unfortunately, to dim them you need a special 12-volt style dimmer.  The normal 110 volt dimmers don't work (you will see a lot of flickering).  Put a couple of tracks on two separate dimmers and you have amazing flexibility to put beautiful effects in your home.

I've always hated compact fluorescent lights.  It's the weird shape and the fact that most of them have really ugly looking light that sours me on them.  There is also a movement to make them mandatory which really doesn't appeal to me.

They are more efficient than halogen, which are in turn more efficient than incandescent.  But if you want light to go where you want it, halogen works and CFLs don't.

I just wanted to apologise - this was meant to be under the lighting solution for your home thread and somehow it wandered away because of a timeout problem since I'm using the Internet in a marginal reception area for my WiFi.  If this can be demoted to a reply, please go ahead and do it :-).

Thanks for understanding!

It's okay, Dennis. Your posting is excellent.
