Ripped off at De La Poste Blowjob Bar, Pattaya

In a rage as I write this, please bear with me. It was only a little over $8……. doesn’t matter I am still really pissed particularly at how it went down. This is more background to my last post about rip offs in Pattaya. First off don’t believe everything you read on the internet. The last time I left Pattaya 3 years back I had two main regrets. The first was that I didn’t get a special massage from the shop (they call them massage shops) next...

Cebu City’s Bikini Bars

Cebu City has about 11 bikini bars on Mango Avenue where you can find a nice Filipina lady to keep you company for the night at your hotel or apartment. All in all it’ll cost you around 3000-4000 pesos ($60-90) plus drinks. The bars are open from around 8pm – 3.30am or later if there are customers. Does Cebu have Barfines? In Angeles City or Manila you pay for sex in two transactions – the barfine paid to the bar, then the tip paid to the girl after...

Is Pattaya Scam City? Tourist Trap? Thailand vs the Philippines

While I can’t really call much of the things I have seen in Pattaya ‘scams’ one thing is for sure: it is the biggest tourist trap I have been to in Asia. When comparing countries I like to compare cities to other similar cities. So for the sake of most of this post I will be comparing Pattaya to Angeles City and Sihanoukville, Cambodia because both are similar touristy type places. First lets do some quick price comparisons on a few things to see how...

Cebu Hotel / Short Stay Condo with 10Mbps PLDT Wifi

I first picked City Suites Ramos Tower hotel as it’s a short walk (500m) to the Mango Avenue nightlife, and looked modern from the pics on their website and Agoda page. Deluxe corner room 27th floor, $39.95 on Agoda (1860 pesos) What I really liked though is that each room has it’s own private PLDT wifi line, condo style – it turned out City Suites is actually a Condotel, with both daily and monthly rates. Perfect for digital nomads trying to find good internet in the Philippines without signing...

What are Thai Girls Like – Month In Pattaya

Week 1 in Pattaya my mind was kind of blown about the sexyness of Thai girls’ stomachs and how much better the bodies were overall compared to Pinays. I was on cloud 9 and thinking how by the time I finish traveling it wouldn’t surprise me if I got an education visa and spent a year in Pattaya. Week 2 the luster began to fall off. It was still a good week, but I was beginning to realize some things about Pattaya that I did not...

Getting Laid on Filipino Cupid on Day 1, Date 1

Hi guys, so I’m on a visa run in the Philippines at the moment while Dante is in Thailand, we’ve swapped places! I landed Tuesday, signed up for a membership on FilipinoCupid Wednesday and woke up with a 20 year old Filipina in my bed on Thursday. I love Asia! I’d used ThaiCupid before but this was my first time on their Philippines dating site. I made a profile a couple days before landing in Manila as it’s free to appear in search and get sent some initial messages / receive interests. Then...

Onward ticket from the Philippines – FAQ / Workaround

Before you board a plane to the Philippines you need to show a return or onward flight ticket (to anywhere outside PI), an annoying ‘immigration requirement’ for foreigners. Once you land you don’t have to show it. Some common questions that it’s hard to find the answers to on Google, and a cheap solution: Do they always ask? Yes, unlike e.g. Thailand it isn’t random, it’s strictly enforced for every airline and departure airport, and you can’t really blag it. Does it need to be a printed ticket? No, I’ve...

Checked Out 5 Blowjob Bars in Bangkok

It took me a while but I eventually found something I really liked in Thailand – blowjob bars. Not something you can find living in the Philippines – sure you can get a BJ from any random bargirl, but there aren’t many venues specialising in blowjobs, full of girls with expert skills, where you can walk in have your balls drained then continue on your night out. All with BBBJ (no condom blowjob) and CIM (cum in mouth). Cute uniforms @ Kasalong Blowjob Bar As someone who actually prefers a...

Finding Filipinas in Thailand? Not So Easy

Even though I am very pro Philippines there are certain things I can’t argue – Thailand has better infrastructure, internet, value for money apartments, etc. I can see why more expats want to live there. Pinay in Pattaya! While I certainly wouldn’t mind having some better food, faster wifi, or knowing that I would be at a good hospital in the case of an emergency none of those things are as important as what living in the Philippines has to offer – much nicer, friendlier, and more genuine people. Not...

Insomnia / iBar Review, Pattaya | 2016 Prices

For those that aren’t aware the main nightclub for picking up prostitutes in Pattaya is Insomnia / iBar. Upstairs is the loud fistpumper disco (Insomnia), downstairs is the more laid back hang out bar (Ibar). There are stairs inside connecting the two and they use the same VIP card. Pics via Club Insomnia Pattaya Fan Page This is considered to be the best venue to meet freelancers in Pattaya. Think High Society in Angeles City. I normally hate hooker discos but since it’s such a good pickup spot and you can get...

PI Freelancers vs Bargirls | Prices, Pros & Cons

If you read up on the Pinay bargirl scene you will read many different opposing views. Some guys will say that you should never go with a freelance prostitute because she is more likely to have a disease or to try and scam you (I’ve never really had a problem). There are many different stories of scams but how often do they really happen? Or is it just a few isolated incidents that get told over and over again? And how much safer is a bar girl when it...

A Look Inside Knightsbridge Condo, Manila

A reader kindly sent in some photos he took at Knightsbridge Residences, which is probably the best location in Manila to live, walking distance from Burgos Street, Greenbelt mall, nice parks with hot Filipina girls jogging, lots of upscale restaurants, etc. In central Makati and near similar condo Gramercy Residences. He recently decided to move to the Philippines, got talking to chick living there on FilipinoCupid and she even picked him up from the airport before taking him to her studio room there. Gotta love Pinays! Right...

$17 Blowjobs in Pattaya – Week One

On this Pattaya trip it felt so nice to be back around so hookers. It’d been 3 years since my last trip and the main thing I remembered about the girls is that they knew what their job was and they were willing to do it. Pinay hookers like to think of themselves as just regular girls going out to party and maybe they meet a boy…… and then he pays them. But they aren’t hookers (!). Thais know what the deal is and that makes hookering...
