Living in Vietnam First Impressions

I always like to do a ‘dear diary’ type post when I first get to a city that gives my initial impressions on it. Not only for the blog but for my own entertainment as well. Some places I initially love after a day and a month later I am like wtf was I thinking, and it...

Vietnam Day one – Airport Taxi Scams

At least the view was nice It took all of three minutes to get scammed on my first trip to Vietnam. I arrived at Ho Chi Minh airport feeling like shit after a long day of travel. I decided to save $150 and do 1 stop over instead of flying direct. A 2 hour layover isn’t too...

My Cost of Living in Jakarta ~$1200/month

I feel like I have let the fans down cuz I did an awful job with this budget break down. I know how much I spent, and I know exactly what I spent on certain things but not others. The whole 1.3 million rupiah per $100 thing really threw me off and I just got lazy...

Dating in Jakarta vs the Philippines

When I was in Thailand I didn’t really do much dating. I put in a bit of effort and had a bit of success on dating sites and meeting girls at malls, but I didn’t give it a full go really. Jakarta is different, the girls on Indonesia Cupid are much easier to talk to then Thai...

Harder to Pick up Girls in Malls in Jakarta?

I knew that ‘malling’ was a big thing in the Philippines but I thought it was an all over Asia thing not only a Filipino thing. Davao mall The malls in Bangkok were quite crowded as well, but it is a huge city and I was right in the heart of it so that is no surprise. Jakarta...

Date with a Jakarta Girl on Tinder – Trip Report

Hot Jakarta girl on Tinder Some readers of this blog may have noticed that I basically never mention Tinder on here. Some may think that it is because there is no affiliate for Tinder so I have no reason to ‘pimp it out’ but that really isn’t the case. It’s because Tinder sucks in the Philippines. Sure...

First (And Only) Experience With Jakarta Visas

I enjoy living in Jakarta so far and overall it is very similar to the Philippines. It is nice to be somewhere new for a change and I would kind of like to stick around for awhile and see if things are better here then Phils. They are very similar with a few key differences. So far...

First Time at Jakarta Spas

About 6 months ago I was reading on mysexpedition blog and that is when I first found out about the Jakarta spas which also double as strip clubs / brothels. I had some interest in checking out Jakarta anyways, but now I knew I had to go. I really didn’t know what to expect because so often...

More Visits From the Virgin

Considering my first time with this girl was up there for best days of my life I was very hopeful to get a return visit from the ex virgin I talked about in last post. She is a solid 7 and that is a big win from a dating site, then add in that she was a...

Debating Indonesia vs Philippines for Long Term Living

Clearly I really love the Philippines and I could be very happy spending the rest of my life there. But after 3 years I wanted to travel around and make sure I really was in the best place. Lately I’ve been trying out Jakarta, Indonesia. I have been to Pattaya and Bangkok neither of which worked great...

Jakarta’s Blok M: WTF Was That?

I spend a lot of time reading up on places before I go there and sometimes they are similar to how I imagined them, other times they may be very different. Nowhere has been more different then I was expecting then Jakarta’s Blok M. I have read about Blok M for a couple of years now....

Met a Virgin on IndonesianCupid

Living in Asia you have so many memorable days but some will be ones that you truly will never forget. For me yesterday was one of those days. I met this very cute 19 year old on IndonesianCupid that spoke quite a bit better English then most girls in Jakarta but she still wasn’t great at...

Failed Date with Rich Chick in Jakarta

Indonesian model Siva Aprilla on Instagram Third day in Jakarta I am walking through the Grand Indonesia mall which is really nice and huge and pass some very light skinned girl. I can’t tell if she is white or Indo…… but she is hot and I give her my number. An hour later we are texting and...

Treating Molluscum Contagiosum STD

So when I first moved to the Philippines I lived in Angeles City for 5 months before moving on to Manila and Cebu. I had read online that lots of guys were banging girls in Angeles without a condom and most were saying they never caught anything. I decided, perhaps unwisely, to not wrap up with some bargirls...
