  1. Hi bob, I am retiring next year and plan to enroll in the FEP blue focus plan from blue cross/blue shield before I move to the Philippines. All overseas providers are considered to be preferred providers and I exchanged several emails with them concerning their services. Seemed to me the best way to go since my daughter here in the USA will still be covered until she's 28. They also have a large list of providers that they get billed directly from.
  2. Lol. We always do that Tommy. No big deal. I think I've gotten my answer and hopefully others have as well. Regards๐Ÿ˜€
  3. Silang, Alfonso, Amadeo and Mendez are the areas we're going to be looking at. Love the buko pie.๐Ÿ˜€
  4. Lol, AK have you ever seen Las Vegas Vacation with Chevy Chase when he was getting money out of the ATM? I just had a vision of that being you. Look it up. Incredibly funny scene.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚
  5. I never understood why people use real money to buy "fake" stuff in game. I play a couple of those phone games like candyland but never had the urge to spend money on it.
  6. Keep in mind that Lambanog (coconut distilled spirits) is evil stuff. Drink in moderation. It's smooth but packs a punch.
  7. Definitely some good information here. I was looking through Amazon and the heater there with 220v wiring are quite a bit higher wattage, anywhere from 6-24kw. From some of the posts I read sounds like overkill. Plus I'm not sure about the piping...better to wait and see. So boots on the ground on this one as well. Looks like I'll wait until I move there this next year and see what's available and probably go with some of the recommendations made here including checking and possibly amp up the water flow. Since we'll most likely be buying a house close to Tagaytay, I would imagine I'll need a bit higher wattage since the water is a bit colder there.
  8. I did some looking On line and Lazada has several different models for sale. Not sure if the quality though but the price is right. Wondering if I should buy some here in the USA before I retire that are wired for 220V. I've been to several hotels in the Philippines that had them and they were great ๐Ÿ‘.
  9. Hi all, I searched the forums and was a little surprised this topic hasn't been discussed. So any of you have a tankless water heater in your bathroom/kitchen and if so what do you have or recommend?
  10. I've looked into it. I'd have to renounce my U.S. citizenship. Not really worth it to me right now so not for me.
  11. One of my favorite videos. And so true๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. That's the reason I plan on applying for the 13A Vida about 6 months before I leave the USA. So in February of 2020 or so. I've always heard it's good to get it before you arrive. Congrats on finally getting your 13A stang70.๐Ÿ˜€
  13. Ancient cultures many times have better ways of doing things. Go figure ๐Ÿ˜ https://www.futureofpersonalhealth.com/digestive-wellness/why-squatting-is-a-better-position-for-bowel-movements/# But yeah back to the topic. Western style toilets aren't made for squatting. Buy a squatting toilet.
  14. Lol. I'll admit it. Ex-Air Force here. I was stationed at Clark AFB from 1984-1991. Met my wonderful wife of 33 years there. I was an air traffic control radar technician. We left the Philippines 1 month before Mt. Pinatubo blew up. The Lord was watching out for us on that one.๐Ÿ˜€

    I'm with you Tommy. Add sisig and Bulalo to that list and the fresh seafood that is awesome. Philippine food is a little bland at times but the foods you mentioned are great. Also, believe it or not Philippine food is starting to trend here in the US. Many well known Filipino cooks are upscaling the recipes. And like people in here have said to Jerry921. Learn to cook. It's not only cheaper but healthier also. Jerry921, good luck whatever you decide.
