  1. Did I read this correctly? So Legally, I am not allowed to bring any Filipina 10 years younger than me back to my hotel? If so, man... I am guilty - 10 times over.
  2. That is obvious. My dilemma is once the priest says you are now ONE... After marriage, how do you approach this? I do have a girl in mind. But I'm not sure she could handle my financial situation if I disclosed it honestly. And I know it has to be eventually discussed. There are always problems associated with money, even in abundance. Maybe this forum is not the best source of solutions...
  3. I'm not that stupid. I'm back home in Hawaii now.
  4. Totally disagree. Especially in marriage. Open, honest communication is the crust of trust. If you can't do that, you got the wrong partner.
  5. yeah, I was drunk when I posted that... maybe a mistake.
  6. Sorry if I came across that way, but it is a problem I have been contemplating non the less. I guess this forum was the wrong place to seek such an answer. Funny how we don't like discussing money problems, especially when in abundance. Something even families have a hard time discussing around the dinner table. But it is a legitimate question. How do you go about discussing it with your significant other? You do realize that money is still the number one cause of divorce in the US right?
  7. Hell man, just had a great night out tonight. I'm going to disclose a little more. Not to brag, but only for your honest opinion and feedback. I have net worth of $2.6 million. Which includes a penthouse condo in Hawaii, overlooking a golf course, just 5 minutes away from the airport. I have no debt... everything is paid for ... and I have a government pension and investments that gives me $7K per month. How do I discuss the topic of money with a young potential Filipina? Who barely understands how to open a savings account in a bank. As fun as it is, it can be frustrating.
  8. Same here. But now, it's mostly to play pool with the bar girls. That never gets old to me. Still fun.
  9. I can understand if this was in the province of Samal, Leyte... but this condition is within an established Angeles City Condo. The majority of travelers don't bother with turning on the TV. It's YouTube, and internet on their laptops. Common man...
  10. Totally agree. Bar fining the bar girls are for the newbies. You eventually learn there are a lot of quality girls outside of the bars. Bar girls are like cattle... the better they look, the more they screw... I quit playing that game a long time ago.
  11. You rent an awesome condo on AirBnb. It even has a separate bedroom. But the internet sucks. There is no WiFi signal that extends to your bedroom. The only spot that can catch a signal Is in the corner of your living room, so you set up a table to set up your laptop there. Does this piss you off?? Common man, how many of us can live without a good WiFi signal that extends throughout our rented place? Especially to the bedroom? To me, this is unacceptable. Common Philippines...
  12. I just watched parts of it. Hooo. Dudely Moore is one lucky guy in that scene. Raquel is the bomb.
  13. Definitely gonna check this out. Makes me molibog just thinking about it.
  14. Man oh man! I know my age is showing now, but I can't shake it. Now who on this forum also thinks Raquel Welch is the all time sex symbol? I re-watched 1 Million BC again and she is just stunning. I guess I will never be able to outgrow the impression she left as a child - my first Hollywood crush. Don't you think there are some Filipina's with similar facial features?
  15. No need to be a sex tourist in the Philippines, there are many great women outside of the bars.
  16. I was made aware of the eruption from my friends and family back home in Hawaii the next day. They just wanted to make sure I was not affected. Amazing how oblivious you can get while vacationing the Philippines.
  17. If you've spent enough time in the bigger cities, you will know what I mean. Especially where the side walk real estate is limited and the passing lanes are squezingly narrow. More often than not, I find myself stuck behind the typical Filipino whenever I'm walking to my destination. Is it the slippers? Or is it the "laid back", "not in a hurry" culture here? I'm still learning to adjust to these small details.
  18. I hear what you are saying, and it wouldn't make sense when you're younger and trying to establish yourself, but another story all together when you're older and no longer have to build a nest egg. And I am not unique here, it takes time for the power of compounding to take effect.
  19. If it happens, I think I will just as happy as well. I hope.
  20. Maybe you need to work on your English? Just a little? But I get your point. I've been to Dumaguete where the old guys hang out. It's a foreigner saturated city, but the key is to check out places on the perimeter of Dumaguete, away from the foreigners.
  21. But you are not taking into account that there are NO "novelty factors" back home. That's what makes the Philippines so addicting and hard to leave.
  22. I wouldn't want it any other way. Especially if you have sufficient income. I wake up every morning feeling blessed, and life is great. Retired at the ripe age of 58, I still feel young here. Why? Because the young Filipina's give you some attention and make you feel way more special than you deserve. If you are a bachelor with money, you will not want to leave the Philippines. I rent an awesome one bedroom condo, for $750/month, with a great pool and gym. I limit myself to a budget of $100/day. My typical day is as follows: 1) Wake up and eat breakfast, any restaurant with good food will do, 2) Study - online class, 3) Workout at the gym, 4) go looking for Filipina's, malls, restaurants, even bars...rinse and repeat. Now why would I want to settle down with one girl? And give up this freedom?? It never gets old. It's definitely more fun in the Philippines...
  23. Actually, the only condo that impressed me was the Hyatt place in Bonifacio Global City. But that's if your willing to dish out 48 million pesos.
  24. Oops, scratch that, got mixed up with Puerto Rico... scratch that brain dead reply
  25. Costa Rica?? Really? It got smashed again with an earthquake. I heard the infrastructure is devoted, including the ability to get clean water. Similarly, you better think twice about living in the typhoon zones here in the Philippines as well (i.e., Samar, Leyte)
