  1. If you plan to live in Philippines being marred to a Filipino Citizen as others have pointed out a 13A visa is an advantage. Filipino Citizenship is impossible for an average Foreigner. Don't get into any financial obligations with someone online. If the person is asking money clearly that's a red flag. On the other hand many of us have met and are married to wonderful Filipinas. Good luck!
  2. What would happen If there were to be a large fire in metro Manila during those times?
  3. I agree Mike. Great idea but implementation not so much.
  4. First guess would be Venice Italy. Although the architecture near upper left appears similar to older Filipino homes? Can't be in Philippines because the water is reasonably clean of debris.
  5. Sterling up over 2%. Lawmakers will vote again Thursday. As an American citizen I have nothing to say in all this other than whatever takes place I hope it's best for UK.
  6. Kevin, I read your post aloud. My wife is laughing hysterically. That same laugh she uses (often) when I say or do something especially meaningful.
  7. Facebook has been down for a few hours my wife informs me (often). She and her friends are exchanging messages to do with this tragic event. The apocalypse worse than no free wifi!
  8. Good for you Onemore52. I truly believe what goes around comes around.
  9. Guys please lighten up a bit on the sweeping generalizations. Not all Filipinos are the same. Many Members here have had difficulties with help in their home. Others have done OK.
  10. We are thinking along the same lines as Gary. Not cheap but for us the best of both worlds.
  11. I agree with the others and Arizona that first travel around get a feel for different areas. You say "not near any civilization". If you mean not near a city or large town that can be done. If you mean without any nearby people that is going to be very difficult. Have you any ideas location wise? Near the sea, or at elevation for cooler climate or perhaps a nice view? You want a farm or in the wood lands? To live in a rural area is nice but could become boring. I love being out in the Provences myself. It can be quiet and often the people living there are more open and kind. You have a great adventure ahead!
  12. Steve if you give up your vote you have allowed elected officials become your rulers. If elected representatives refuse to follow the will of the people they have become rulers.
  13. I refuse to fly a Filipino airline unless I have no choice for domestic flights. If you purchase a seat for half price but then have it changed or canceled at the last minute it's no bargain. Don I do wish you luck.
  14. I don't mean this in a judgmental or moral way. Your friend made some poor choices that have expensive consequences. Hope he learned from it.
  15. Don't waste your time JJ. I doubt much of what he said and much of the rest made little sense. He was an older gentleman she was young and very attractive I could see how he could fall in love with her. Knightrider filled in the blanks nicely. I do feel bad for the guy I'm not trying to judge him.
  16. What is your question? Are you looking for an area to live?
  17. I don’t know. Moving on with his life and I wish him well. Perhaps some of the advice he received here didn’t fit his plans. IMO he will remarry a much younger lady and try again.
  18. Great topic John. Good quality fresh cheese 🧀 is become fairly common in the Cebu City area. During or visits I can’t find good quality fresh beef.
  19. That explains why they were selling cases of spam in duty free store last time I visited.
  20. Sleeping at my folks old home down in Talisay proper I wore ear plugs and used a fan for white noise. I honestly feel bad for those who own property and have to deal with folks who allow noise all hours. This has been a common topic here for years but not much to do sometimes but simply bear with it.
  21. Bringing Spam to Philippines? You guys are joking, right?
