  2. Stay safe over there Reekay. Circumstances can change fast. Some of my wealthy expats friends in Columbia lulled themselves into a false sense of security a few months ago. They boasted about low case levels, not realizing that testing was nonexistent in Columbia, and still is not where it should be today. Not sure about Cebu. Stay strong bro.

  3. The official story was “George Floyd Died of COVID-19” yes you read that right. You will be listed as a COVID death if you die today. Know that other one who hanged himself in L.A? Guess what? He died of COVID too.

  4. Hey Reekay, please, you and Vi stay safe. Hopefully cebu can be upgraded in the next 2 weeks. Thank you as usual for your update my friend.

  5. The CCP will gladly lend any amount of money the local authorities need in the Philippines. Just ask (while you say nice things about them)… and see what happens, of course, when the loan payments come due (read the fine print!). Hint: Look at the situation in Hong Kong, which used to be a wonderful city. Hope the economy can restart on its own when things finally re-open, as they must. Thanks for the update; hope you’re getting your “pass” to shop as you need it.

  6. Thank you for the knowledge. This information is helpful. Hopefully you will continue to keep us updated.

  7. Great info bro. This is why ive been a follower of your since the very beginning 2013. You give UP TO DATE information

  8. G’day Rick I’m from Australia I would like to know something if you can help me pleaseI would like to retire to the Philippines and buy myself a business there for income do you think that’s possible ok thanks mate

  9. Sounds like they need to setup direct flights with visas to bohol…..was trying to wait out cebu…but I’ll gladly spend a month in bohol if need be….flights + visa=money for bohol……from this comment to whatever god you believe in makes that happen

  10. “They could die of some other disease and call it COVID-19”. Yeah, easy to use that logic until it’s your grammie or grandpa.

    And having everyone sick costs way more than the job losses now.

  11. Hello RIckaay are American tourist who were there in manilla before March able to fly back to USA now or are they still stuck in manilla?

  12. Hi Henry. Did you notice at Metro supermarket if they were looking not only at the pass but what Barangay is shown on your pass and declining your entry cause you are not the Barangay of metro supermarket. Also at your Condo Henry are the passes and their QR number some odd and even #’s so that one can go out any day if they were available. Odd as you know you can only go out MWF and even T, Th, Sat. I’ll be driving to metro tomorrow in case you need any garlic Henry… lol. Be safe.

  13. Thanks for that info update Reekay. Sadly though, the update for us here in the USA, waiting to meet up with our loved ones once again, is that we are all still banned from entering the country.
    Got round trip tickets back in April for 625 USD.. for a Sept 13th -Oct 11th visit. I’m from NJ. Our tri state area (NY NJ CN) and other states here in the NE USA (PA RI MA) have been complying and our COVID cases have been dropping compared to the rest of the country. Hoping that that trend continues, and MAYBE the PH will open there country to us residents from that sector of the USA. God I miss my girl!!! Skype can only last for so long…… 🙁
    Anyways, my reasoning behind this is that maybe the PH can hope to start generating some USA income into there economy from the most populated region in the USA.

  14. If you were in a village in bohol you would never have even noticed there was a lockdown, (besides the schools). they are self functioning economies. farmer picks fruit > goes to the market > trike ride to the market > come home. thats how it worked before covid and how it worked during covid. my gf dad drives a trike and he was working the whole time.

  15. Stay safe reekay and Vi, I see the united States have big rise in cases again, thank god the UK death is some what come down

  16. Latest: Cases of COVID-19 just keep on rising in the Philippines. Cebu City is the new epicenter of the archipelago. Samar and Siargao are new hotspots.

  17. They opened the resorts on Samal July 1st. But you still can’t get there from Davao. Apparently only resort customers will be from the locals.

  18. As strong as the USA is we are seeing the problems here funding has been cut for schools cities are laying off workers some villages have closed their police departments and county sheriffs are answering local calls

  19. Crazzzzzzzzzzzy Passes…I’m claustrophobic from 6000 miles away. And the kids haven’t been outside for nearly 4 months….shameful!

  20. Thanks for the update Reekay, it’s not looking good for us tourists, who want to return, but our problems are mainly insignificant compared with people, the businesses, and their livelihoods there. Take care always.

  21. Any word on if your married to pinay? Can I go there and see my wife and kids? I live in dipolog city. I’ve tried looking up on bureau of immigration but it’s not very informative.

  22. Great info Reekay. I had a question. I’m married to a Filipina and will be returning to Cebu on September 17. One way ticket. I’m traveling alone. What documents will I need to enter the Philippines? I assume her birth certificate and our marriage certificate. And I of coarse have my passport. Would I need anything else? And since I’m proving marriage to Filipino citizen will I get the Balikbayan Visa? On March 19 they came out and said as long as you have documents proving marriage to Filipina you may enter without her. Hope you can help me with this. Thanks in advance.

  23. Wow, I got on one of the last flights out of Cebu City on March 23. In Hawaii now but just read a news clip quoting a rep from John Muir hospital that they have as many suicides in the Bay Area, CA in one month as they normally have in a year. They have also had more suicides than Covid 19 deaths there! Amazing! I wonder what the suicide deaths are there in Cebu? And depression? And also if it continues, are people going to starve? Would be interesting to get some interviews from people on the street.

  24. I am not looking forward to what will happen in the future in Philippines. OFWs are coming home by the thousands with no job, and no money. The families that they support do not have the monthly income anymore. The Government is virtually locking everyone down in Cebu, 5 Passes for 150 units? They are preventing people from earning money and even if they have a little money they can not leave the house go to the Market . Many people are out of money, food ,and are very desperate.

  25. Seems like the Philippines won’t be opening no time soon.. damn.. I have my money ready and just needed a passport.

  26. I phones the Philippnes ambassy in Canada. I am married to aa Filipina for over 10 year . They told” you still cannot go there!” I am confused now

  27. Getting really fed up with the Philippines government. Not able to go to Philippines, accepted as the UK still has a problem. My girlfriend however has a six month visa to visit UK which started in March and runs out in September which cost £500+ if you include agency charges. She is not allowed to leave the Philippines, nor with the UK Embassy extend the visa. So lose out on both accounts!

  28. Here in California, the Gov. re-closed all restaurants beginning July 2. The virus is not going away. We need to learn to live with it.

  29. Wow thanks Reekay I feel really bad about the whole thing Bohol And Cebu as well….You do a really good job keep up the good work. I hope you do a live stream soon?

  30. Hi reekay. Why is that you can get a visa for one year using a visa service for only $90, but it costs a lot more in the Philippines. Also I was blacklisted in 2008 for overstaying without proper visas. I tried emailing them in January but they don’t answer. I have paid all my fines. I have a new passport with the last name I took after marriage with a Fillippina. I was wondering if I will have a problem when applying for the year visa through the visa service company. Please let me know your thoughts.

  31. I’ve spent a lot of time in Bohol. The tourism is a mixture of Korean, Chinese, Japanese and American. And if none of us can get there……

  32. DU-30 is being very well-paid for his luxury retirement (only 1 x 6-yr term allowed) by the global plandemicists to prolong the lockdown as long as the people will tolerate. The scamdemic is the world’s biggest-ever hoax: ahead of 9/11, carbon trading and cellphones are safe.

  33. Sir Reekay, you failed to mention why the steep ECL level. Most cases? more people dying? Lot of carrier? thanx

  34. People die of pre existing condition true however i bet they were tested to get a bed for Corona hospitals wont to know if they have virus i doubt a hospital would cook the books to run up Corona death they don’t wont all them corona death at there hospital. My guess government would say there was less death then there really is It may be worse than then there saying If you don’t test you dont know were hot spots are. Only my opinion

  35. In camiguin you could only be able to go out for one hour. Now it’s OK and relaxed but before super controled

  36. Reekay did you do that round trip to Vietnam from Cebu and what was the. Cost?? I itching to take my Philippine wife and my son to live in Vietnam

  37. If Bahol is broke! What about all the other islands. You can’t find a tourist in the islands that tourist is the life blood

  38. I live close to Jagna Bohol and things are pretty Relaxed here, But places Like Panglao where Tourism is the Highest is really taking a Big hit and I know of several here that use AirBand B that have an extra House to rent out have been sitting Empty for a while now, so if they keep Tourists out much longer I do expect to see a lot of places closing, Especially in Ponglao.

  39. We are on mgcq and it’s pretty relaxed out here. Apparently, the hotels and resorts are allowed to have guests but locals only. However, you have to get a permit or something like that from the DOT to accept guests. Curfew is still in effect tho for minors and seniors. We can also go to the beach and swim but on a limited time basis. I feel bad for you peeps out there in Cebu. Stay safe.

  40. I have an srrv visa and the BI says if I leave Phil I can’t re enter until further notice – so don’t leave if you are planning on returning soon

  41. How does the tourist visa situation effect those who already here on a tourist visa like you and me?

  42. What do you expect from the alternative? The first thing I thought about in January is THIS PLACE IS THE LAST PLACE I would want to see Corona take over!!!. Hell if America is struggling, after two weeks in a hospital here in Dumaguete in March I KNOW THIS COUNTRY would be ruined!!! Hell they can’t even do things right in normal times and only 10 ventilators here. So if it closes for a year the alternative is BRAZIL type of results. And be not fooled Philippines government have lots of money they can take care of it’s people with rice and pork if they want too.

  43. Man I was headed to either Cebu or Vietnam from Dumaguete but I’m glad AF I’m not in Cebu, but wish I had of gotten out to Vietnam or Bali before the travel ban, because get ready for everything to go looney tunes, very soon. They change things every five minutes. Asian Romance guy was VERY smart to get out.

  44. 1,500 new cases……will not be long before that per day figure to rise and continue to rise. And not Just in Cebu but the Luzon region as well. People in the Philippines have been daily food shopping for many years. And now with so many out of work employees as well as those business owner experiencing a reduction in sales, coupled with the overwhelming number of new births and crowdedness, it really is just a matter of time before other areas are taken aback to ECQ quarantine status. So, knuckle down and stockpile as much savings as you can. Because for the foreseeable future it is going to get much worst before it starts to get better. I personally have shut everything down as far as any travel plans until December 2021. Now, that may seem like a long time to most, but in my mind it is extremely logical.

  45. The economic loses. Are worst than the virus. At some point they need to loosen travel with precautions.
