Sexy Pinays and the Games They Play

Sexy Pinays (shorthand for ‘Filipina’) are my favorite women on the planet.  They are very fun, like to joke, and are always smiling and having a good time.  Easy to talk to and just great to hang out with overall.  The problem though is actually meeting up with them. Sometimes they can be so frustrating flaking at...

Can I Bring a Friend?

‘Can I Bring My Friend?’

Filipina women hate to go anywhere alone.  They always want to bring a friend with them and this will often include when they hang out with you.  To me this absolutely ruins the idea of hanging out with them. Not only does it make it much harder for you to achieve your goal on that night, it...

Filipina girls fall in love

Ones That Got Away

Filipina girls can fall in love so fast and it’s hard to keep them from doing so. I don’t like having serious relationships here for that reason. Filipina girls are so sweet and all they are looking is for someone to be kind to them and take care of them, and I can be kind but I don’t...

Living in Cebu

Living in Cebu – Pros & Cons

My first time in Cebu I absolutely hated it.  I just had an unlucky first week and it made me hate the city.  I had come from Angeles City and thought the traffic in Cebu was terrible. I thought everything was too far apart and you wasted to much time getting from one place to another. ...

Life in Manila

Life in Manila – Day 1

When I moved to Asia Manila was where I wanted to be.  Most of the reading I did before moving here was about life in Manila and I was excited to finally check it out. I was only going to be staying for a week because I already had a cheaper place booked in Angeles –...

Why You Gotta Be So Rude Filipinos?

A curious thing about life in the Philippines is how the people can be so friendly, and yet so rude all at the same time. If you are having a conversation with someone they are likely to be very happy to talk to you and very kind.  But out in the day to day world when you are running...

Where to meet Filipinas

Where to Meet Filipinas Out & About

If I was living in the US and was as aggressive about walking up to girls and giving them my number as I am with pinays I would possibly be in jail by now, and at the least I would be 86’d from all the malls surrounding where I lived. In reality there is nothing wrong...

Retiring in the Philippines

Why Everyone’s Retiring in the Philippines

If you take a trip to the Philippines there will be something about the expats that stands out. They are old. There are lots of retired expats all over Asia but in the Philippines there is definitely a much higher percentage of old expats then young expats. There are entire online magazines about it like RetireToThePhilippines.com. That’s...

‘Requirements’

For the most part living in the Philippines is very laid back with zero obligations.  However there will be times where you just have to get something done, and those times can be quite frustrating because of my new least favorite word: ‘requirements‘. Any time you hear the word requirements in the Philippines expect to walk out of...

Subic Beach

Things to Do in Subic, or Lack Of

I have spent close to two months in Subic on a few separate visits.  It is an ok place to visit but I definitely could never see myself living there long term. There are definitely some pluses about the city but the negatives definitely out weigh them in my opinion. I have always stayed in Barretto...

Cute Filipina Women

Filipina Women & The Cute Things They Say

Sometimes Filipina women will say the cutest things without even realizing it at the time. Even though many Filipinas speak pretty good English they sometimes will say something that is just adorable that they didn’t really mean.  Below are my three favorite examples of this so far. The Moons I was talking to a Filipina when she started telling me...

Moody expats running a business in the Philippines

Expats Running a Business in the Philippines

Something I have noticed here is that many stressed out western business owners treat their staff very badly. They pay them terrible wages and then get mad and yell at them over small things, and often threaten them with their jobs. Actually I’ve seen this in both Cambo and Phils. Grumpy westerners in Cambodia When I lived...

My First Philippines Bargirl

My first Philippines bargirl experience came on day one of moving to the Philippines. I was in Angeles City and walked up and down Walking Street poking my head in every bar. I was super shy and really hated being rushed by the waitresses and mammasan so I didn’t stay in any for long.  I stayed just...

Restaurants in Angeles City

Best Restaurants in Angeles City

Now a lot of interesting stuff comes up for a Google search of ‘Angeles City Philippines’ but one thing you don’t find much info on is where to eat. As anyone who has traveled to third world countries can tell you picking the right restaurant is very important, and restaurants in Angeles City are no different....
