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...

One Month in Pattaya For $1065

I did a Pattaya budget breakdown before but this is an updated version since living there again more recently. The first time I went to Pattaya 3 years ago I spent around $1250. To my surprise I actually spent quite a bit less than I did last time. Cost of Living in Pattaya 2016 I am actually quite...

In a rage as I write this, please bear with me. It was only a little over $8……. doesn’t matter I am still really pissed particularly at how it went down. This is more background to my last post about rip offs in Pattaya. First off don’t believe everything you read on the internet. The last time...

Is Pattaya Scam City? Tourist Trap? Thailand vs the Philippines

While I can’t really call much of the things I have seen in Pattaya ‘scams’ one thing is for sure: it is the biggest tourist trap I have been to in Asia. When comparing countries I like to compare cities to other similar cities. So for the sake of most of this post I will be...

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...

What are Thai Girls Like – Month In Pattaya

Week 1 in Pattaya my mind was kind of blown about the sexyness of Thai girls’ stomachs and how much better the bodies were overall compared to Pinays. I was on cloud 9 and thinking how by the time I finish traveling it wouldn’t surprise me if I got an education visa and spent a year in...

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’d used ThaiCupid before but this was my first time on their Philippines...

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?...

Checked Out 5 Blowjob Bars in Bangkok

It took me a while but I eventually found something I really liked in Thailand – blowjob bars. It can be hit and miss asking an Asian girl for a blowjob, even some hookers might say no (or ask you to put a condom on) or just not be very good at it. The only sure bet for BBBJ (bareback...

Finding Filipinas in Thailand? Not So Easy

Even though I am very pro Philippines there are certain things I can’t argue – Thailand has better infrastructure, internet, value for money apartments, etc. I can see why more expats want to live there. Pinay in Pattaya! While I certainly wouldn’t mind having some better food, faster wifi, or knowing that I would be at a good hospital...
