  1. Congratulations Steve. For your assurance, there hasn't been anybody that I know that have regretted pulling the trigger, including me. Personally, I have been retired for a little over a year now, and I don't think I have been happier in all my life. The most stress I have is when I dream about work... and end up pinching myself every morning upon awakening. But I am blessed to have successfully planned to live in Hawaii, where the cost of living is outrageous, so money is never a concern if I were to decide to live elsewhere - anywhere in the world. But life after retirement is NOT all roses. I have decided to spend my first year living in the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia using my free time to look within, and find out what I want to do for my next 20 years (I am currently 58). Just one small advice for you... with all that free time, don't forget to put in at least 30 minutes each day to take care of your health... you only have one body...Welcome to the club... you won't regret it..

    Is this a good thing? Hmmm... I wouldn't even do this if we lived in the US...
  3. Have you tried AirBnb? The Hassaram Courtyard was excellent. They have scooter rental there also.
  4. What?? I don't believe the response or the intentions of this thread. She is a Filipina and a beaut… period. The Philippines has developed a trend to win beauty contests -- and for reason. Filipina's are the most beautiful creatures on the planet. I only hope this doesn't entice more eligible foreigners to come here... it's no longer a secret.
  5. I wonder if there are circumstances where an employee can get fired for keeping under the table tips.
  6. I've never had a problem with metered cabs just outside of the Terminal 2 arrival area. I always plan it so that I arrive on a Sunday to avoid the dreaded Manila traffic.
  7. Why wouldn't you expect to pay higher prices for US products there?
  8. I don't know what "pulutan" is but it sounds masarap.
  9. I mentioned this previously on another thread, but it was interesting to see dogs walking along the side of a busy street and timing their way threw cars to cross the road. With all those stray dogs, I have rarely seen a dead dog on the side of the road.
  10. It could have been clearer if written "... a minor twelve (12) years or under, or a minor who is ten (10) years or more his junior, in any public or private place...
  11. Did I read this correctly? You cannot hangout with anyone ten (10) years of more your junior? If so, then conservatively speaking, I could guess that over half the expats are guilty.
  12. If you listen to the pod cast, I think you would have a different opinion.
  13. I just sat through a 1 hour pod cast with Paula Pant interviewing Suze Orman on the F.I.R.E movement. According to Orman, 2 million dollars is not enough to retire. I can't believe the arrogance of this lady.
  14. It's a no win situation with a Philippines lottery. First off, the odds are better to get hit by lighting twice so it's just a waste of money. And by all odds if you win, your life will permanently be in danger.
