  1. Life can be good sometimes expatUK! Me I'll be flying to the Philippines tonight from US. Always exciting! Looking forward to doing a little sightseeing and enjoying company with my wife's family. Easy to see why some can "go native" and never go back.

    List of visa free countries for Filipinos

    Thanks for this useful list!
  3. Well I won't be staying permanent any time soon. I've got 2 kids stateside to finish raising. But who knows in 20 years?

  6. She will be with me. Is the 13a the balikbayan?
  7. Since I am married now, I wonder how I would do that? Is it the same as balikbayan? I'll be traveling to Ph next Friday. Last few times was tourist visa with the renewal just before 30 days.

    Electrical appliances which make to buy.

    I don't seem to need as big a fridge in the Ph. For one, the household was just two, and for another, we seemed to go out shopping for edibles on most days so we didn't need a lot of cold storage. Here in the US, I have the typical big 2 door fridge/freezer, plus another nearly identical one in the garage. But since my Filipina came over, they don't fill up anymore and the outside unit is just for special occasions (parties and beer). I used to buy more in bulk and but she just buys enough for the next few days. Sorry if this is too off topic.

    Maybe the brand is Ph but the stuff is made/assembled/whatever in Canada. But I don't find that too likely.
  10. I did a quick search and found 3: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1110975948984085/about/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/dapitan.dipolog/about/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/527472307302393/about/
  11. In my experience, there's usually some local buy and sell group specific to an area in the PH on Facebook. These seem to be good places as a starting point to find things like rentals. It's worked for me before. Just a thought.
  12. Longer days means you can go watch sunset after dinner. But here in US I get beach...AND kids.

    Expat-to-be...A few questions

    Hemp-derived CBD is allowed under Federal law in the US. It is a small loophole. It's legal only from imported hemp. Hemp doesn't contain high amounts of psychoactive THC. The Senate Majority Leader, however, is introducing a bill to legalize hemp cultivation int the US, so that might change. It's about time. Hemp used to be a big crop here, even the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. Me, I've been taking legal CBD for a week and a half and I seem to be sleeping better. As for PTSD, I hear a trip on magic mushrooms under supervision can be very helpful.
  15. Fantastic....quality housing for everyone!
