  1. Hi guy's, I'm going to make my first trip to the Philippines in a few weeks time. I'm staying for 18 weeks, I understand about visa extension, but on entry is my flight departure on my flight ticket adequete for 'proof' that I'm leaving again? I saw on youtube references to 'throw away flight tickets' if your stay is over 30 days...Is this really needed? Thanks for any helpful explanation.
  2. It looks as if Duterte is going to finish off the Abu Sayaff for good: https://www.philstar.com/nation/2019/06/03/1923113/more-soldiers-deployed-vs-abus
  3. I heard it was some nutter trying extortion by threatening to blow up the premises, they got him on cctv, someone even told the guy he'd left his bag behind, people are very vigilant now I think. I'll be in a Barangay not too far from there, I know a lot of people already, friends and family and neighbours, all through fb over 2 years now. I'm actually more nervous about visiting my mother soon in London!
  4. Yep, I'm going to prepare for that, thanks
  5. Im going to the region 12 area, near Isulan, I've got some good quality mosquito repellant, but I'll certainly wear long trosers and long shirt sleeves, my gf recommends that i do, plus ill only be having bottled water. Dengue looks like a problem so I'll ask my doctor about that. thanks
  6. Yes, I think thats the one thing that I heard that I definetely need to address, thanks Gary
  7. Thanks Geoff, I'll run that past my doctor and see what he recommends

  9. I'm 6 months away from my first trip to the Philippines and wondering what, if any vaccinations are required before I go. I'm going to be in the province/rural area of Mindanao for about 4 months after I've stayed in Baguio and Boracay. I've spoken to my doctor and he's yet to get back to me on what he thinks I'll need in the way of shots. What vaccinaions did you guy's have, or did you not have any? Thanks

  12. https://www.philstar.com/nation/2018/10/17/1860599/australian-man-killed-gun-attack-ilocos-sur TUGUEGARAO, Cagayan, Philippines — An Australian man was gunned down by unidentified assailants in Sinait, Ilocos Sur on Monday. Reginald Hodgens, a building supervisor and surfing afficionado, was resting in front of his rented house in Barangay Katipunan when he was shot at around 7:45 a.m. The victim, who had been staying in Ilocos Sur for the last three months, recently filed a complaint against a barangay official after they figured in a fistfight last month.
  13. This guy, according to the NBI, was trawling online dating sites and introduce himself as a former US Marine working as a defense contractor... https://www.philstar.com/nation/2018/09/12/1850680/swedish-man-held-extortion
  14. Thanks for the encouragement mate, my gf said pretty much the same, we'll just see how things go.
  15. Thanks for posting, it could have been worse as they found 2 more ied's and defused them...My girlfriend's family live near Isulan, I'm due to visit next year, but if this crap get's any worse....

  17. Ive been asking my gf every now and then about the safety of her area of Mindanao, near Isulan, she says its quite safe. I read about 4 or 5 online news outlets, and the martial law and the containment of any NPA, BIFF or any other terrorist groups seems to be working, I'm still worried as its my first trip, which will be end of next year. Fortunately my new family are eager to see my gf's new guy, and lots of bonding with them is planned, also with the neighbours too, there's a good feeling of neighbourly closeness in her village...in a nutshell, i think from the feedback ive had from this ti
  18. Thanks Capa, im Mindanao bound next year, a barangay in Sultan Kuldarat, they seem to be dealing with the BIFF and the NPA effectively , my gf says her province is safe from bad guys, although im sure there are dodgy characters about, I've made friends with the neighbours and friends and family through social media, and will do in person, i know its a risk going there, but there's risk everywhere..just look at London!
  19. I dont know this guy, maybe some of you do, my friend put his latest 'news' on her fb page, she visits him in prison. " Still trying to get a lawyer and NBI to do their jobs. I wish to file cases against my ex Maribel Banggcoc Agliam (also known as Karen Banggcoc Erika Karen ... Karen Belle and Samantha Lahin and other false FB accounts) which means I could be in this Detention Center / jail until I get justice or die in here. The cases I wish to file include: - Criminal and Civil cases. Criminal Fraud. Married so Bigamy. Immigration Police Told me
  20. I think only the muslim men have the option of divorce
  21. That's what happened to my girlfriend, her ex went back to his ex and left her with 2 kids, but my gf is divorced legally, she a Christian and he's a muslim, under muslim law he can divorce, so with a few signatures she's free to marry.
