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...

Cebu Condo Example on AirBnB

In the last post I gave examples of some of the high end condos on AirBnB that do monthly rates  – Knightsbridge and Gramercy in Manila, and Calyx Centre in Cebu. Someone commented I should post some more original content, so here it is – La Guardia Flats 1 at the end of La Guardia Street, Cebu. It’s centrally located between JY Square Mall and IT Park, and about 1km North of Waterfront Casino if you scroll the map down. A fews mins cab ride to Mango Square, MO2 club, Ayala Mall...

Finding Monthly Stay Apartments on AirBnB

By default AirBnB displays daily rental rates, however if you input check in dates a month apart it updates the listings to show monthly rates, which usually comes with a ~50% discount. An example search of private rooms for $300 – $600 for Jan 1 – 31, 2017 with keyword ‘Makati’ (the nice part of central Manila) spits out 134 rentals. Example Monthly Rental Below is a room at Knightsbridge Residences condo in Makati for 24799 PHP / month (~$520), cost of wifi and utilities is included...

can you monetize girl videos on youtube

Can Girly YouTube Videos be Monetized?

A while ago I got an email from cheapskate Dante (lol hotmail). 100 pesos = $2.15 😀 Of course I say yes. At the time we didn’t realize overly sex-related videos aren’t eligible for YouTube monetization, and were just messing around getting initial content onto the Nomad Philippines YouTube channel. First Attempt at a Monetized Youtube Video It ended up doing well with the half nude thumbnail and ‘sexy pinay hot dance‘ title, getting 33,000 views in 2 months. Part 2 did ok too. For me it was worth the...

Best Place to Stay in Chiang Mai as a Nomad

If you ask the best Thailand bloggers Bangkok beats Chiang Mai hands down for long term living, stuff to do (nightlife especially) and overall lifestyle. That said NomadList ranks it in #1 given the amount of hipsters digital nomads there, and I still like it for short trips. Chiang Mai accommodation is sick value for a reasonably large city. On a recent trip up there I found a good serviced apartment for monthly stays. Best Place to Stay in Chiang Mai I was in town to visit...

How fast can you rank on page one of Google?

In a recent post on how to rank higher in Google I talked about getting to the #1 spot, with an ‘authority site’ – it was a site Google knows well, has been around years, has tons of backlinks etc. At least that’s what I think authority site means. Recently this Wordpress blog – NomadPhilippines, that isn’t an authority site for anything – got on the first page for ‘best country in Asia to live‘. At the time it was only a few weeks old, had 70 posts up, 10 or so backlinks mostly from forums...

How Many Times Should You Use a Keyword?

How many times should you use a keyword on a page is a common question. I usually use the keyword I’m targeting in: the H1 title, and the URL one H2 subheader the first and last paragraph 1-2 times in the body text the name and ALT text of the main image the meta title and description Moz.com makes similar recommendations, along with emphasizing that ‘content is King‘ – worry first and foremost about just writing good content that solves a problem for users, rather than a...
