About Me.. In 2011 I made the decision to move to the Philippines within a year. Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat. (Mactan, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong, Boracay, Cebu) I recently spent the year living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Share with me here my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Dating, vlogging, cooking, traveling and sharing the information with you needed to make your own plans for living as a full-time expat in Southeast Asia.

  1. are european and americans still allowed to enter Philippines with a tourist visa ( even with a 14 days quarantine ) ? as long as i know, the manila airport is still operative for international flights and still accepting foreigners… from my country ( Italy ) they ask a medical certificate to show i am covid19 free… but is not clear if is enough or there is a risk to be bounced back. I guess travel with a simple tourist visa is not very safe now.

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea I assume the Balikbayan visa is free for spouse like me from.the UK, ? Is this issued on arrival Reekay?

    2. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea What if you are already here and your tourist visa is still valid till 30 May?

    3. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea thank you for the answer Reekay. They also dont release business travel visa aswell?

    4. currently, no. no new visas are being granted to foreigners into the PH. only those already married to a filipina and entering with her. (balikbayan-visa)

  2. Great Vlog. I kind of did what U said I flew into Cebu & Ne (GF) met me @ the AP. We stayed there for 6 days it took 2 to recover from the worse Jet lag I have ever had & then we took the boat to Bohol, where we lived until 6 weeks ago when we came to Davao, just in time for the lockdown. I liked both Bohol & Cebu but I would go with Bohol. Davao is okay but I can’t really say much about it because I have been on home Lockdown (65). If this ever ends I want to see Dumaguete & meet with Gio (why I missed U live) & Paul who I have been chatting with. I like it that a lot of EX-PATS live there. The only problem I have ever had with a few of them Is they say I am crazy for trusting Ne with our money. I wouldn’t have come 9K miles to be with her if I didn’t trust her. 15 MOS. later She is the 1. I have been known to be wrong but I believe U may have found U r 1 this time. Scary movies The Shinning. Jack Nickolson is scary in real life but more in that movie.

    1. that’s the best way to do it first time-in. get a feel for the greenery and beaches. 🙂

  3. FYI..you could take Vie to Argentina for two years and get her a Argentine passport….allows dual citizenship and freedom to travel to many countries around the world visa free..also they have agreement with US Social Security for spousal benefits. Plus beautiful, affordable

    1. the topic is usually covered in the first 20-minutes of the livestream. that happened in Part 1. had some tech-difficulties so that’s why this time there was a Part 2. here is the link with the discussion on the main topic…

  4. Reekay experts fear lifting restrictions will trigger surge in new cases, but many people already suffering economic fallout.

  5. Magandan umaga Reekay, really like the comments you refer too, NOW ON THE SCREEN, , great idea , guess it took a bit to effect ? and you mention Dipilog , I went there one evening with a group of people after having a day at Emanuels, a resort of interest with many comic character statues that kids ( and adults )! interact with, great pools and bar close by, impressed with Dipilog , was xmas time and they had an entertainment public area, where you could see xmas scenes all on a roof , great atmosphere, and clean, modern, safe facilities and some sports also available, the table tennis tables were all brand new ! I loved the game and would have played but all tables were used, a great day and great group of Philippenos I was with , they know how to have a good time !

    1. thanks. i plan to pay for a better service (rather than standard OBS), so that it makes for a more dynamic viewing experience for all of you. working on that now.

  6. Elvis, Filipina’s provide support for the main breadwinner, they want the man to provide financial support and they support him, making it easy for him to live while working and making money. They accept that job, if you want to call it a job, with open arms and are happy to do it. Most Filipina’s could not make enough money to pay half the lifestyle of a foreigner. Filipina’s want to support by taking care of house and him – a responsible man who wants to provide for his family and they do it very happily. That is their contribution to the family which is just as great as half the money for bills, even more so.

  7. Free VPN will sell your data. I would recommend either Private Internet Access (PIA) or Nord VPN. Yes, they cost a bit of currency, however it is worth it.

  8. Look folks, the virus is a genetically-engineered scam to cover 5G rollout (same symptoms), keep people at home, destroy middle-class businesses, get everyone vaccinated with poisons & push a cashless economy of fake digital money. Watch out for Covid-19 A, B, C … versions … now they see how the sheep roll over and obey, the élite will push and push their agenda. If you want your freedom back, simply don’t obey … not enough jails for all !!
