comment What makes vaccinations “recommended”? (for Philippines)
Call your family doctor for this advice. They may refer you to a specialized "vaccination clinic" that can recommend and perform the vaccinations. Since such clinics specialize in the subject, they generally give the vest advice. The list you have above is essentially the list the CDC gives for every country in the world, so it's rather information-free. See for example wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/… which differs only in the omission of Typhoid.

comment Meaning of the “Have you ever been refused entry or deported from any country, including Singapore?” question
When you are turned away you need to ask if you are being denied entry. Often when people are not allowed into Canada they are "allowed to withdraw their application" which means they can truthfully say no, they have not been denied. The people who refused your visa can tell you if that constituted denying you entry.

comment US visa from Bangkok, Thailand and wish to visit another country
Canada is not a European country. Not that it's relevant, since I don't any countries that will let you in with a visa for the US, but can you edit so that the body and title don't contradict each other?

comment Do electronics bought airside have to be fully charged?
I believe the rule is they need to be charged to take them through security. If you buy them after security, this is not an issue. However, if you have a connection that might require you to clear security again, you should plan how to charge them before that time.
