One Month Living in Bangkok for $980

And I Thought Filipinos Were Rude | Thais Are Worse

In the past I wrote a post about how rude Filipinos can be. But it is more of a rudeness by ignorance than rudeness by malice. With Thai people there is a whole different level of rudeness. Thai people suck To be fair I do think Thai people are a little better about the lack of self awareness...

Filipino Mail Order Brides? 30 Success Stories

We live in a hot take society these days, and small things can get blown out of proportion in no time. After reading a recent Reddit thread it hit me: Filipina women off Filipino Cupid are basically the modern day mail order brides. Of course it isn’t just Filipino Cupid, it can be PinaLove or any...

Opening a Bitcoin Wallet in Thailand / Philippines?

I’ve always been a bit of a fish when it comes to investing, stocks / shares / bonds etc. (why don’t they teach us this in school?) and had only vaguely heard of Bitcoin. A friend of a poker friend bought a ton of the cryptocurrency in late 2013 when it was on a huge upswing, then...

Thermae Bar Bangkok – Best Spot to Meet Freelance Thai Prostitutes

One of my favorite nightlife spots in Bangkok is a freelancer pickup bar / coffee house called Thermae. Entrance to Thermae bar & coffee house, Sukhumvit Road Aka ‘the Thermae‘, there’s no barfine, no overpriced drinks, no obligation to buy lady drinks… you just walk in and pick up one of the waiting prostitutes, who line up...

Which Sexpat Travel Blogs Should You Believe?

Recently a new Philippines sexpat blog popped up by a guy who has had a Thailand red light blog for awhile. I have read some of his Thai stuff before and never found anything that I thought was too off base, but maybe I just don’t know Thailand well enough to notice. While this post will seem...

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 ($35 off your first trip link). Checking in...

Why I Became a Sexpat in SE Asia (Ebook)

I just got done writing an ebook about why I decided to leave the West behind and make the move to South East Asia. It ended up being twice as long as my other ebooks so I wanted to give you guys a longer sneak peek than normal. In the last section of the book I talk about the...

Budget Hostel in Makati Near Burgos Street

Entrance to San Agustin Residences One of the worst parts about living in the Philippines is that the hotels and condos are too expensive for what you get. A $50/night Philippines hotel room that’d be worth $30 in Thailand, Vietnam or Indonesia. A $500/month Manila condo that’d be $300 in Bangkok. And so on. However every...

Bangkok on a Budget – Ebook Guide

In this Bangkok ebook guide I break down where to get your end away as cheaply as possible in Thailand’s capital, how to get settled in, and how to get the most out of the Gogos, massages, soapies and freelancer areas on a budget. Make your money go further in Bangkok (aka Bangers)! I also include the $340/month apartment I usually...

My Optimal Game Plan For Living In Bangkok

I will not be living in Bangkok long term. As I have mentioned I just don’t find Thai girls attractive so it would be silly to live here. Most guys prefer the looks of Thais to Pinays, and I guess this is a good time for me to be in the minority. But Bangkok has a whole...

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)...

Awkward Moments Dealing With Filipina Girls

If you spend too much time in one city eventually you will be handing your number out to girls you have already tried in the past. Even in a city of millions of people if you frequent the same places it is bound to happen. Recently I have had a few awkward moments in this situation...

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. I wrote this on a messageboard...
