  1. For those looking to buy property in Dumaguete i know a serious and trustworthy Filipino Broker i can link you to. Know him for 2 years. PM me if you need his details.
  2. Originally i wanted dasmarinas because of the lower rental prices; but kawit seems nicer because of being bordered by the sea. The reason to be close or inside metro manila is because of having the airport nearby. It's a good option as a starting point... I would go straight to dumaguete, but rents are twice expensive; plus the extra flights involved.
  3. Hi Scott, I'm ok with Las Pinas, Paranaque or Alabang. Although Paranaque seems to close to the busy center of metro manila. But i'll let you chime here. I just want to decide on a starting point and that's it. I don't know anyone in Cavite area or above it at all ! I've got a trustworthy Filipino buddy that i know for some time but he is not in PH! I know a serious broker from dumaguete and have few random filipino contacts from facebook from around the country.
  4. You're right. Just thought you had some trustworthy contact from the areas. Personally i am fine starting with Kawit in whatever accommodation i find; and then roam around.
  5. Hi Clermont, If the city has some nightlife, good; otherwise does not matter. I am looking for a regular city with quality buildings, that does not have much burglary. Markets. A mall if possible. Otherwise will go to manila malls for specific shopping. I prefer to make the right choice from the start and stick around if i like it. In the top of my head I have kawit Imus/Bacoor as 3 options, but i have never been there so your and other members feedback is super valuable! Let me know what you think and feel free to add a better city option. I am fine with anything is northwestern or nothern cavite.
  6. Hi Jolly, In Northwestern Cavite. Kawit city. But i'll also appreciate if you pull a contact for Northern Cavite. Are Imus/Bacoor good options? Which city would you recommend in Northern Cavite
  7. As tourism is fully re-opened. Are tourist visa extensions back or not yet?
  8. I know what you mean regarding the turning a buck mindset. This is why serious contacts are important :)
  9. Hi Guys, I've sent some messages to Filipino forum members on Facebook for rental groups etc, and also emailed some agencies (but no one has replied). I can feel in advance this is going to happen often. I know the (boots on the ground) approach. But i am referring to a place where i can stay temporarily while i search for long term rental options. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Is anyone able to recommend me a serious broker/contact for Cavite Province? - Anyone has a bedroom available for 1 person in Cavite province? Max 7K. With 1 extra person only in the property. - Or a fully furnished unit just for myself. Max 10K. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks.
  10. For a longer term stay i am set on trying Dasmarinas or Iloilo City. Dasmarinas is close to Manila airport, but Iloilo has sea. Which would you NOT PICK; and why?
  11. Dear all, - Anyone knows why i can't contact the Admin? - How do i stop a member from following me? Is this possible?
  12. Yes. Members started expanding on things and providing useful info, that you probably seen dozens of times already. Yes please; topic can be closed.
  13. The island thing is just to be away from confusion until i settle so i got the info i need. Thanks for pointing Starlink. It could as you mentioned make it possible to work in the middle of a nice beachfront or a mangrove forest
  14. Hi Howie, That depends if their work is dependent on fast internet access or not... My work relies on good internet connection! Without it i cannot earn my living to be able to live in the Philippines!
  15. Dear HK, I spoke to a filipino friend and recall saying dumaguete was one of the biggest cities but not as crowded and thought lloilo was smaller. Need to do my research better... Will def consider Globe, and start with smaller plan, and increase to 500mpbs if needed. Hope they are in plenty of neighborhoods in dumaguete or mindanao.
  16. For a city not as crowded or developed as dumaguete (correct me if i'm wrong) that's actually quite impressive. And like i said, if PLTD exist in your area, with a fiber business plan you can go up to 500mbps.
  17. I realized i need to be very careful about the Filipino connections i make. One house agent i spoke with a few times said opening a bank account is no problem. Even if its not possible "i have a backup plan with my local bank for that", where i can get very low interest rates to withdraw money anytime i need. I have it all figured out! If visa extension does not provide me with all things i need, my plan is to apply (in the future) for a Retirement Visa. And even if things don't work out etc i can always return back home. The light skin cream analogy you gave was funny! I know some people here might understand/take it wrong or whatever, but one thing i noticed in PI is the religious irresponsibility and dumb mentality. Meaning a filipinos daily life is all about blessings etc; yet the agent i told you which has been active and reliable in his communication with me, and willing to help me with address registration for my bank account etc asked me to borrow him 20.000PHP. I told this to a filipino friend of mine in europe and he told me he has big guts to ask someone he does not know this much money when i am in the other side of the world and he told me this is the 1st red light! I transferred the guy already 2.000P just for him being active with me and willing to help, then he wanted the whole arm! I've noticed filipinos tend to be passive! It's annoying...
  18. Yes boracay is super nice! I am looking at Dumaguete, Mindanao, Pampanga. And i will be able to get decent speed there. Probably a good idea to live in a foreigner neighborhood. That was a very good point actual. Glad you mentioned it. Thanks! :)
  19. I know what you're saying! I am thinking about Dumaguete, Mindanao, or Pampanga. The idea for the island 1st is not to pay two rents, cos when i'm in either city i will rent, so an escape for an island will be pure holiday getaway for some weeks and then return. For now i just want suggestions for a nice island to visit with internet. Nothing else! Maybe i'll just stick with Siquijor or El Nido.
