Manila Pad for RooshV Day Gamers | Greenbelt Excelsior
Greenbelt Excelsior check in
The RooshV forum guys love to day game and ‘mall game’ and never do P4P (pay for play sex), this Manila condo I recently stayed in reminded me of them.
It’s a short walk from Greenbelt mall, on Don Carlos Palanca street, take a right as you come out then a left, cross the road and you’re at the mall in a few mins.
Makati Day Game
Lots of nice coffee shops en route to the mall, by the condo and by the North West corner entrance to Greenbelt 1, and fancy restaurants around.
So it would be easy to cold approach a girl and take her to a few spots that end up being next to your apartment. The streets are pretty clean and safe / not a sketchy vibe.
Office workers on Don Carlos Palanca St
It’s only 1.5km to the P Burgos gogo bars but the freelance hookers, child beggars and mothers walking around with babies don’t venture down to this area.
Around Greenbelt Excelsior it’s a nicer ambience and mostly just office worker girls, many get lunch on Don Carlos Palanca because there are two food vans.
The Greenbelt area of Makati is a bit more walkable, bigger sidewalks, no ladyboys to dodge like the ones that sometimes hang around outside Gramercy condo.
Greenbelt Excelsior condo is also opposite the Belle & Dragon gastropub for picking up chicks at night, or taking a date you’re already with. Has a hidden whisky and cigar bar ‘Mandalay’. More on that here.
Belle & Dragon bar
RooshV forum guys talk about game tactics like touch escalation or taking a girl to half a dozen or so different locations, so she feels she’s known you for longer and is ready to bang.
Living in Greenbelt Excelsior would be good for that – mall, cafe, restaurant, bar, hidden bar, then say ‘oh my apartments just there want to come and see the view?’.
Greenbelt Excelsior sauna
Or suggest coming over to try out the pool and sauna open 6am – 10pm.
Or the ‘I need to charge my phone’ excuse our Indian guest poster had success with when out on dates.
Condo entrance seen from Mandalay bar
I don’t like the entrance it’s small and the security see you every time, and have you sign the girl in on the guestbook. But other than that it’s guest friendly, if the girl forgets her ID they’ll still let them in.
And they don’t make you go down to pick up a girl, they just call your room. And call when they leave.
Overnight guests allowed
Gym & Pool
The fitness and swimming pool are small too but usually empty. Has changing rooms, sauna, massage room, and separate kids pool.
The gym has two barbells, rack, bench press, 100kg in plates and dumbbells up to 25kg so maybe not enough for serious lifters.
I much prefer The Beacon condo for working out, it’s also walkable to Greenbelt mall. Many more weight plates and a gym and pool both five times the size.
I’d rather live there but this condo is still ok and reminded me of RooshV forum with the little day gaming route to and from the mall. The streets around the Beacon are a bit more frantic.
Also the ceiling is too low at Greenbelt Excelsior gym so if you’re over 5 foot 9 you can’t overhead press without hitting it.
There’s a cable crossover and pull up bar but again I was hitting my head doing the full range of motion.
Three running machines, two cycle machines and a couple benches, Zumba ball, TV and air conditioning. Open 6am – 10pm like the pool.
TV & Zumba
Greenbelt Excelsior Rentals
There are 35 floors of studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units, from 36 – 82 sqm. Floor plan here.
$48 Daily rental
I can’t find many ads for long term rentals on Manila Craigslist or Olx.ph but the ones I see start at about 27k pesos / month which again is a bit high.
Kitchen, desk, sofa
That one has a washing machine which is a nice touch, and decent PLDT wifi line in the room. Microwave, kitchen, fridge, hot water, air con, kettle, etc.
Pinay not included
Things to Do in Makati
Greenbelt Excelsior is also near the Ayala Triangle park another good day game spot for picking up girls, lots of cute Pinays jogging or sitting outside the many cafes.
Then there’s Cafe Havana and the similar restaurants in Greenbelt 3.
That’s a freelancer pickup area but I see a lot of RooshV forum guys go to blatant hooker spots in SE Asia, pretend a freelancer isn’t one then say ‘oh I don’t pay for sex‘ 😀
My buddy got a 3 day ban on that forum for joking ‘get your wallet out’ when a guy asked how to pick up Thai girls. Yet they go ‘shoring’ in hooker discos.
While they are a bit weird there are some cool posters too and lots of good info, there’s a Roosh V Philippines thread. I’m jspill on that forum.
There’s a sky bar a short walk away slightly past P Burgos, at the City Garden Grand Hotel on Makati Avenue. Ok spot for a date.
Also the Legazpi Sunday market is nearby, fun place to take a dating site girl, hang out and try different Filipino food. Then Glorietta mall and SM are just past Greenbelt.
Greenbelt Excelsior condo is also near the Makati Enterprise Centre which has a HSBC branch, the ATMs there let you take out 40k pesos at a time.
Couple more pics on Instagram
Most Philippines ATMs only allow 10k withdrawals or BPI ones allow 20k. They all ding you with a 200 pesos fee so it’s best to withdraw the max.
Overall I enjoyed living at Greenbelt Excelsior short term but I like the other Manila condos I reviewed more.
