  1. Ozemike At 72 you should be looking to maintain muscle so I would prescribe an early morning, low weight, Full body, HIIT training program every other day. This could be all over in 20 minutes. Buy a set of 10 to 20 kg dumbbells and either an inflatable exercise ball or bench and do the following: - Dumbell Chest Press x 3 sets - 15 reps no rest, do one set then to next exercise below until both have 3 sets completed - Dumbell Squats x 3 sets - 15 reps. As you have done chest set before the blood will flow from chest to legs making the heart pump - Dumbell Curls x 3 sets - 15 reps, straight into -Dumbell alternate leg lunges x 3 sets - 15 reps (each leg). Again Curls is upper and lunge is lower so blood will move pumping heart -Tricep dip using bench x 3 sets - 15 reps - Shoulder press x 3 sets - 15 reps - Finish with Ab crunch and one minute Ab Plank This will work up a sweat, be over quickly, pump your heart and can be done alternate days. OR - chill out and have a drink. Just my advice and its free!!!! I am 54 and use the gym 5 days a week. Muscle burns fat all day and a High Intensity, Interval Training gets your system going better than a couple of hours walking. By the way, as I am still working, I used to make excuses that I had no time and I never went after work as too tired. My solution, get up an hour earlier and go to bed an hour earlier and now I am in the gym at 445am and out by 515am and it is OVER. I can't say I like the gym but I do LIKE the feeling that before most people have woken from their dreams of sleeping with the wife's cousin, I have finished my workout. Paul
  2. Dearest Fonts of ALL Knowledge I am a bit of a gadget man and have been researching 2 way translation devices. There seem to be many options, not so many with Tagalog but a few. I was wondering if anyone out there had ever purchased one of these devices and if so which one and how good was it? I have seen hat some of these devices require WiFi to operate or connect to your phone through an App. I look forward to hearing from anyone who may have dabbled in this area. I am tempted but would rather seek first hand feedback then flush my money down the 5 star CR! Paul
  3. John I will keep in touch and let you know when I will be there. Working in Abu Dhabi and not sure when I will get home. For sure it will be great to meet up one day. Keep in touch. Paul
  4. Masterbate on his towels and leave them outside his door, Happy Days! Also why not share his Air BNB site and we can all leave lousy reviews so his business goes down the pan along with your contribution to his towels!
  5. Have you found Ben Jordan???????? I hope that why you are asking!
  6. Steve Basic human needs include shelter so the house should come first, especially if you are planning to retire there. tell the missus you will play the lotto and if you win you can go to the USA. Just my view. Paul
  7. Members I hope all members in Davao area are safe and well as I am reading about two large earthquakes offshore. Have you noticed anything or seen any local agencies clearing beaches or properties near the waters edge as a Tsunami warning was issued? Keep safe all and make sure the beer in your fridges is lashed down! Praying no damage or further quakes are forthcoming. Paul
  8. Dear Members As some of you may know I have been working to a plan to move full time to the Philippines from Sept 2019. I currently work in Abu Dhabi and have done for the last 10 years. We have the house built, car in the drive, some farm land and a couple of businesses. In March this year I sent the wife and dogs back full time and I downsized myself into serviced accommodation so I could also send appliances and other stuff leaving me with an easy exit when I decide to go. The only thing left to do is sell the car here and send the money to Philippines to buy a second smaller car there. Now to my point and request for advice. I have a good job here earning tax free money and my question is do any of you have any regrets that you may have stopped work too early? I know that, when the time comes, I will be financially okay in the Philippines but I do sometimes think is it wise to walk away from the money. I look forward to hearing from anyone else who may have had the same thoughts but took the jump or anyone who stayed a bit longer and regretted it. I know I will be happy and we have paid for the big ticket items but money in the bank is security too. Thanks for any input on this. Paul
  9. Make sure you have travel insurance just in case you get sick on the trip. You don't want to spend your hard earned money on medical bills. You can get it cheap and it is worth the piece of mind. Paul
  10. All This was my House on Monday. No damage but a bit scary for family. 0f17529f-4d2c-4473-a8a3-53723ce48ca0.MP4
  11. Carl I live in Aglipay and have family in Solano. I currently work in Abu Dhabi but will be back over to Philippines in Jan 2019 so would be great to meet for a beer. I recommend Santiago City to meet as quite central for all. Paul
  12. JJ We had a vet do everything door to door. No quarantine in Philippines if you have all the required jabs before they fly. Actually the arrival process was very professional in Manila. My wife was met from the plan and taken through immigration and baggage collection and then driven over to the vet location where she did the paperwork and the dogs were reunited with her and even had the change to get showered and cleaned up before the road journey to the house. We hired a mini-van and driver who took all seats out except one row so the dogs had room and we had room for their crates. We were well impressed. Not cheap though! Paul
  13. I would not give him the benefit of the doubt or anything else. The problem is that idiots like him give all expats in the Philippines a bad name and also cause grief for those who do have family and go to a Mall or Resto as everyone will imagine the same thing. I applaud the authorities for taking action and I hope others will learn from this and eventually we may be looked upon as proper expats, wanting to live in a beautiful country, with our friends and families and not as sex tourists. Just my opinion. Paul
  14. Steffa I was at airport on Friday night to fly, got denied and had to wait all weekend to go to BI in Intramorus to get letter on the Monday and fly that night. 2 more nights in Manila. Bummer! Paul
  15. Steffa I was refused exit when I tried. I had to go to BI to get a letter of waiver so I could depart. I was applying for permanent residency ACR so not sure if there is a difference. Caused me a lot of stress so I would check first with the Officials. Better Safe than Sorry! Paul
