    Scrub it... or it won't be clean.

    Geoff, You got lucky. Great wife and family. Wise father in law. Mine is a gem too!

    20,000$ US for soon to be expat

    It’s awesome you’re in a position to get away from your life and try something different like this. Frankly I’m excited for you. Filipnos are competitive as well but in a different way.

    Yes. If I were single and planned to live reasonably modest outside a large city $20k would be enough to live there for six months. You understand that you’re likely not to remain single very long?

    20,000$ US for soon to be expat

    Welcome to the forum. Budgets are dependent on the individual needs and wants. We have members living on less than $1,000 USD a month. Others much more. $2,000 a month maybe enough for you depending on your activities and location. When you say “I’m bringing $20,000 USD with me” you don’t actually mean in your pocket I hope. Use an ATM card or other means don’t have a large sum of cash on hand that could get you killed. Generaly Foreigners may not work in Philippines. There are likely thousands of unemployed skilled Filipino welders looking for work anyway.

    Thanks for sharing that Mac. Know how you must feel, many of us have been used and hurt in the past too.

    Filipina giving driving instructions

    Mostly I politely ignore my wife "navigational help". If she annoys me have an effective cure.... Just turn off the traction control. She will quiet down. For a minute or two.
  8. Anyone else's partner like to give driving instructions as you'er driving?

    There are still today a large number of honest family oriented and faithful Filipino men and ladies. Yes there are also exceptions. Just a little commons sense and due diligence will sort things out nicely.

    Look at these beauties

    Used to be a time this was our main interest; Now a days those pasties have my undivided attention! Although if that young lady were to serve them to me.....

    It’s understandable. You’re going through a tough time. Slow down and work through all the challenges ahead. I would respectfully suggest you don’t start another relationship in the near future. You’re going through a lot of stuff now. We feel your pain most of us have been hurt too.

    I share this thought. Or “he touched my little girl “. The list goes on......

    You have a chance to start over and meet someone who will truly love you and make you happy forever. Many of us here have found that person you can too Bigmac. Best to leave this and move onto much better things.

    Sorry to hear that. Frankly, from what you've shared things did not add up.

    Where to find good head.

    I'm just waiting for Jake's take on this....

    I asked my wife your question. She laughed loudly then said "yes sometimes". She said many of her Filipina friends married to Americans here in the States hate their Filipina Friends back home who want to be "friends" with their husband.

    I'm not sure if you can record or download content from Amazon video.

    Cups, mugs, and bottles up!

    Life and our happiness together. I'll leave the in-depth (what exactly is "IT") question for Jake.

    Help me with Netflix ?

    Local Cebu Philippines Netflix is 500 peso a month. Not sure if required to provide a CC I would think not. I watch my YouTube stuff on my laptop while visiting no problem.
  24. Thank you Jane, are you a Realtor? You are welcome here and have done nothing wrong but please read the forum rules. RFO = Ready For Occupancy. Just so you know many of us here don't know industry acronyms. Jane, what have you heard exactly about a possible new airport near Car Car? That would be great but I don't see an area to locate it there. Years ago Gwen was involved in a scheme to reclaim land off shore there if I remember correctly. Perhaps that's the plan.
  25. Guy, If those two drugs require a prescription in theStates best you just bring it with you or show an empty bottle. I use Tramadol. Show my bottle never had an issue receiving small qualities during my visits to Cebu.
