Met A Good Girl In Angeles City

Hey guys, been traveling a lot this year so decided to get back to the Philippines content and post something from back in the day before I started this blog. It’s about a time when I met a good girl in Angeles City who was way out of her element.

Best Restaurants in Angeles City

Cost of Living in Angeles City

An Angeles City budget breakdown is not an easy thing to write because it is totally dependent on how much ‘entertainment’ a person is going to want.  More importantly maybe, it’s where they are going to want to have it. Get numbers outside the bars to cut down on costs – Fields Avenue girls via Flickr For me the cost of living in Angeles City is around $800/ month but I never pay barfines and don’t sit in the bars.  If you start doing that then...
