Cheap Makati Condo Near Greenbelt Mall | The Beacon Roces Tower

Previously I did condo reviews of Knightsbridge and Gramercy which are perfectly located if you’re on a mongering trip and want to be right next to the red light district – the bikini bars on P. Burgos. On this trip I found The Beacon Roces Tower, also on AirBnB ($20 off your first trip link). Checking in at Roces Tower On previous posts readers commented that for long term living, the Philippines is better for normal girls / online dating, which I’d agree with. They suggested living...

Morning After Pill in the Philippines (Nordette Method)

So nobody told me the morning after pill isn’t sold in the Philippines 😀 As long time blog readers will know I mostly set up a home base in Thailand and go to PI for visa runs. In Thailand you can buy the morning after pill over the counter, ‘Madonna’ or ‘Postinor’ brands, costs 40 baht ($1.13) for the box of 2 pills. The girl takes one as soon as possible, and the next 12 hours later. I’ve had many a ThaiCupid or Thaifriendly girl just tell...

60 Thailand Tips for Sexpats

This is a random list of Thailand tips geared towards sexpats and mongers like myself. If you have any more questions let me know in the comments and I’ll update this page. Happy holidays! 1. The morning after pill in Thailand is called ‘Madonna’ or ‘Postinor’ ask for one of those brand names in any pharmacy, 40 baht. It’s two pills, the girl should take one immediately (not actually the morning after) then the next one 12 hours later. 2. Look on the back of...

Where to Live in Manila as a Single Guy? | Gramercy Residences

It took me a while to stay at The Gramercy Residences because I’d heard some bad things about the staff being less friendly towards short term stays. One reader on this blog said he was ‘treated like a criminal’ for renting daily on AirBnB, and on forums I’d read about people not even being able to get into the building. It also requires sending a passport scan of your ID to the AirBnB host so an access card with your photo on can be made for you. So on...

Meeting a Good Girl in a Bar? – Jools Cabaret, Burgos Street

The day after Horizon bar from the previous post I went to Jools Cabaret which is next door, so also on Burgos Street. It has the same setup as Horizon, the girls can’t be barfined. Instead you just buy lady drinks and watch the dance performances. Sign inside Jools Cabaret, head up the stairs I ended up having sex for free although that wasn’t my intention and I tried to insist on paying. Just like in Horizon the girl I bought drinks for was super happy to give me her...

Got a Nuru Massage in Bangkok In Return For a Review

One perk of blogging is you can get freebies of various kinds in exchange for reviews of businesses. For digital nomad / travel bloggers that might mean a free meal at a restaurant, a comped night in a hotel, etc. When you’re in the adult and dating niche though there are some exciting extras… Confirming where the published review would go and choosing my girl  We haven’t done any sponsored posts yet at NomadPhilippines, the blog is still quite young and small. I also worry about looking like we’re ‘selling out’...

Where to Live Cheaply in Bangkok for Dating Thai Girls (Supalai Park Condo)

I recently lived at Supalai Park condo on Phahon Yothin Soi 21. In the Ladprao area of Bangkok, it’s a good place for a digital nomad to live if you: Prefer normal girls with jobs / university girls / mostly use online dating for free hookups Don’t need to be that close to hooker bars / nightclubs Mostly stay in and work online and do the digital nomad thing Are interested in sports, gym, healthy living etc. The condo is right at the entrance of the soi Location On...

First Night Out On Walking Street, Angeles

Some newbies might be a bit intimidated by the sketchiness of Angeles City. There are some dark alleyways, beggars, touts, chicks with dicks grabbing you on the street, etc. The Philippines is a bit underdeveloped compared to e.g. Thailand so it can be a culture shock at first. Child beggars on Fields Avenue In no time at all you’ll get used to it, but for the first night it can be easier to stick to Walking Street (aka Fields Avenue). Then venture out to bars on the perimeter later....

Manila’s EDSA International Entertainment Complex

EDSA complex is 7 bikini bars and a disco all under one roof in the Pasay area of Manila. On the EDSA freeway before Roxas Boulevard, you can’t miss the neon signs on the outside. EDSA bars are open for business from around 6pm – 3.30am. Go early if you’re hoping to find a sexy Pinay. Taxi drivers should know it if you ask for the EDSA bars in Pasay. It’s across the street from the Copacabana and Heritage hotels, at the junction of F.B. Harrison street and the freeway. Or...

Cebu City’s Bikini Bars – Mango Avenue

Cebu City’s ‘Mango Avenue’ (General Maxilom Avenue) is home to about a dozen bikini bars / KTVs where you can find a nice Filipina lady to keep you company for the night. 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...

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, with your own password, like a condo – it turned out City Suites is actually a Condotel, with both daily and monthly rates. Perfect for digital nomads trying to find good...

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...

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...
