  1. Welcome Peter B. If you don't mind me asking. Why are you moving from Thailand after so many years?
  2. Where I'm from this means she has a big booty.
  3. I cant understand what any of you are saying. Speak American!
  4. 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.
  5. 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 perspective into his situation. I for one am not offended with this bluntness. Clearly locals in the PH and HI know this Gent has money and uses it to enjoy his life. I say go for it.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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 add any insight. For example: Cr has socialized healthcare but Ph healthcare is cheep and good in the larger cities. Cr is closer to the US but flights are about the same cost. etc. Thanks
  10. 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, and my inlaws don't understand my sarcastic humor. But then again I don't understand their humor too.
  11. 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 the mud they can have it. Just don't kick me off til Im dead. Filipino culture is based on the concept of Giving and sharing. So hopefully our compound will get passed down to her nieces and nephews.
  12. Foreigners cannot currently own land here in the Philippines....period... That's the law... sorry gery0x. Tommy T I thought it is possible to inherit your wife's land. I was under the impression her children get first dibs then the spouse. Or was it Children, parents, siblings, next door neighbor, mail man then foreign husband?
  13. My wife and I bought a farm in Cavite last year and we have been making many changes in our lives in preparation to move out there soon. Life changing stuff. I'll be totally honest with you. If there were not kids playing in the streets I would not make the move. Period. The main reason we want to move is for that lifestyle. kids in the streets, old folks in chairs, dogs wondering around and nobody has shit to do.
  14. My wife and I want to build a house and rent out on AirbNb etc in the Ph. Also thinking of Corporate retreat or wedding reception rental. As a foreigner can I do this and pay tax or does everything have to be in the Wife's (Filipina) name?
