comment US trip planning suggestion
You can best plan your trip by learning about things you can reach from Chicago and then deciding whether to go to them or not. The learning part can be done on this site in the form of small, crisp, focused questions, like how long it takes to get from A to B or whether C can be properly visited in an afternoon. This question is far too broad and open ended to be answerable.

comment Can I bring a skillet with me as a carry-on item?
you can't check the suitcase or you don't have to? I've seen some bags on the luggage belt that could have been carryon, but were checked. In fact, I've done it myself on more than one occasion.

comment Is it safe to visit Nepal now since the trip is non refundable?
Today, yes. But in a month, perhaps not. I'm seeing this with Vanuatu. People are cleaning up or loading and unloading supplies, counting people that sort of thing. Not in the first days and weeks I agree, but perhaps in a month.

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.
