    affordable apartments in cities

    Drove through Tondo ONCE. Made a wrong turn trying to go through Manila on my way to Angeles City from Cavite. This was early in the morning. Wheel loaders were picking up all the vegetable trash from the street from the vendors. Took about 2 hours to get out of there. Glad I had heavily tinted windows.

    20,000$ US for soon to be expat

    Is this a photo of the forum administrators and moderators at the annual get together?

    NPA in Luzon? I don't think so.

    My question is..if you're going to blow through 20k in 6 months. How do you plan on supporting yourself after that? Construction workers around here only get maybe P350 to P500 per day. Not saying it can't be done. Give it a try if you have your heart set on it. What the hell..you never know unless you give it a go. P.S. Good luck!

    Transfer US Social Security to Philippines?

    I've been using the FPO address at RAO Angeles City since I moved here in 2002. For P150 per month they will send any mail you receive from the US to your physical address in the Phils via LBC or any other delivery service. It's how I receive my debit and credit cards from my US credit union. Any mail that I want to send to the US (including my tax returns) I send to the FPO mailroom C/O Jim Boyd in a sealed envelope with a note to please mail it. The mail goes through the US Embassy in Manila on the way to the US. FPO mailroom no. 045-892-0817 Landline. I call them about every 6 months to make sure I don't owe any money. Jim Boyd, the founder of the RAO is also an Embassy Warden and an IRS certifying agent. His no. 045-888-2748.

    I don't need luck. I have extraordinary good looks.

    You don't appear to be very heartbroken about the developments. Maybe you had your suspicions all along!

    Did you just say "short time" ?

    Newbie question

    I can tell you are excited. I felt the same way when I moved here in 2002. It's kind of an unknown thing, even though I had visited here many times. I can tell you this..It's the best decision I ever made. No regrets. You will thrive if you adjust to the way Filipinos live instead of expecting them to adjust to you. Keep posting after you arrive please.

    Curious about why only 6 months. Maybe a pension will kick in after that? 20k is plenty unless you're planning on partying every night at the bars.

    I think I'm impervious to scams because I think everybody is trying to scam me. I'm suspicious of everybody from my my mechanic to the guy who came and put in our new screens for the windows. It's not that I can't afford to lose a few extra bucks, I just don't like the idea that someone thinks they can get over on me.

    Shoes? Oh yea.. I remember them. I only wear them once a year though when I go to the BI in Manila to renew. All the rest of the time the uniform of the day is shorts and flip flops.

    Have you been smoking that Canadian reefer? I've heard it's pretty potent and has a tendency to cloud the thinking process.

    Home schooling

    We have had tutors but don't really know if it helps or not. My son went to Kumon for about 2 years when he was younger and it did seem to help a lot with his math skills. He hated it and so did I so we pulled him out. He's averaging mostly B- in most of his subjects at his private catholic school now. He's doing much better than I did at his age which was D- or worse! Don't tell him though.

    I lent an ex brother in law P1,500 over 14 years ago. He hasn't shown his face to me since. Best loan I ever made! One of the most irritating persons I ever met.

    I wonder what the attention would have been if it was a seaman apprentice that got caught?

    Filipina giving driving instructions

    Sometimes. And when she tells me she thinks a certain street would be a short cut I completely ignore her. I've been lost too many times.
