  1. I have Vanguard which I love. But they will not allow me to keep them if I am not a US resident. Ill talk to Schwab, I hear they are more friendly to expats
  2. I'm moving to the Philippines at the end of the year for permanent retirement. All of my financial's are with brokers in the USA. Retirement investments. My understanding is I may not be able to keep my financial Investments with a US company if I move out the Country. i.e. no longer a US resident. What do you guys do? Is there a US Financial firm that will allow me to keep my retirement stuff in the US while I'm living abroad or do I need to transfer everything to a Philippines bank? What is the best way? Thank you
  3. Hi. I have a family member who lives in Manila that suffers from Anxiety and Depression. I'm looking for the best Psychologist or mental health institution money can buy. I am serious. There must be places where the wealthy go for very personalized and effective help. Thank you.
  4. Welcome Peter B. If you don't mind me asking. Why are you moving from Thailand after so many years?
  5. Where I'm from this means she has a big booty.
  6. I cant understand what any of you are saying. Speak American!
  7. My wife's Cousins in Manila all have multiple helpers. Drivers, cleaners yaya's for the kids etc. They pay a decent wage and most treat them well. An interesting comment they make is NOT to over pay. My western brain tells me that if you overpay people they will be more motivated to perform and keep their job. However I'm told by Filipinos overpaying can lead to problems. Seems weird to me.
  8. Sure, I'll go for it. I'll give you feedback and my honest opinion. You come across as a complete arsehole in my honest opinion, very crass as well. Ever since you started posting on here you have always tried to drop money and insinuate your worth into your posts, very tacky. Regarding posting your net worth of $2.6 million dollars... are you really sure that was necessary? Obviously posting personal wealth of this amount is not the safest idea. However it seems to me the original poster intent was not to brag but rather to disclose his situation honestly so readers can get per
  9. A buddy of mine and I are going to stay in Makati for two days in May. Never been to that part of the city, anyone have any suggestions of what to do?
  10. I dont think this eruption will have any affect on property value one year from today. Once the taal stops making a fuss. The ash will get cleaned up and everyone will forget. If anything it might bring in more tourists. Let's g.j o see the valcano that erupted last year etc.
  11. I wonder how this will affect the local economy in Tagaytay? Some of those mama and pop restaurants or hotel's may not be able to stay closed for too long
  12. My co worker has been living in Costa Rica for the last 7 years. He loves it! He works in the US half the year and lives in CR the other half. I've been talking about the Philippines and he is considering a switch. I will bring him with me to the PH on my next trip for him to check out. I've explained that the cost of living in the PH is lower than CR and no need to learn a new language. He is single and does well with the CR ladies and I've told him that Filipina ladies are very sweet and caring too. I'd like to know if any one on the forum has experience with both Countries and could a
  13. I love Filipino culture however the main thing I struggle with is communication. I am a very direct and honest communicator and when I ask a straight forward question I don't always get a direct and honest answer, especially if the answer is no. I've asked my driver if he can do something for me while I am away and the answer is always "yes sir" but he doesn't do it. My wife tells me it's because he is saving face and doesn't want to say no to me. He is a great person but doesn't want to disrespect me by being rude but I'd wish he would just say no so I can find someone else to do it. Oh
  14. I just bought over one Hectare of land on top of a volcano. Had to put it in the wifes name but we've been married since college. I plan on building several houses in the hope that her family will move from Manila and live with us. I never had a family growing up and am very close to my Wife's family. If I can put the houses in my name even though I don't own the land then at least I own something. In terms of inheritance I don't really care who owns the damn land. Our daughter, mother in law, sister in law, the dog. As long as I get to fart around all day and play with my Carabao in th
