Author: Reekay

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.

  2. literally, this my only place to come to get my Philippine update.
    I appreciate you sir.
    One local claim as of today….they maybe on lock down soon….General trias cavite… Have you heard any word on this area?

  3. this is natural selection rules. strong should remain and weak go. why they try to keep people alive by force??? this was rules of nature for millions of year. those people die re 2% and majority of them due to their age.

  4. Your videos are coming out faster than most. Also, your articles on opening the Philippines are more current.

  5. Just keep lockdown until everyone is going to hunger strike protest robbery rape thieves ..then only realized it be too late…thumbs up guys

  6. Hi Reekay,,I Did Send You PM On Your Instagram Chanel,For Collaboration,,Kindly Let Me Know..Cheers

  7. Hey Henry, I really really think, the Philippines will be 90% open by July. Their economy is cratering, as are most 3rd world economies. Common sense is about to dictate, “Foreign tourists” will be flooding back in the next 90 days. DO YOU AGREE?
    Your friend, Curtis in Las Vegas

  8. By the way started watching you in early 2016. Have made 2 trips since then.
    Just retired. So next year or the next will be moving to base in the Philippines and exploring the rest of Asia.

  9. The only good thing about the quarantines there and here is I have saved up so much money! Can’t do anything….
    Hahahaha

  10. As a furineer waiting to get in since last July….thanks for the update. Your measured analysis is the one I trust the most. So I can come next month?
    Joke lang! Hahahaha
    Keep us posted brother!

  11. Assuming they don’t do more idiotic things like mandatory vaccinations for travel you’re looking at least 10-years for a bounce back in travel to the Philippines. Basically a new generation whom was not around for the botched shutdowns.

    You’ll get some horny men, some with family there, but travel to the Philippines won’t be coming back to 2019 numbers for a decade or more.

  12. Cotton masks cause IRREVERSABLE damage to the brain, organs and nerves within a short period of time. The damage cannot be felt and may appear several years later – as early onset dementia for example. The same medical frauds were done in 1918 when Dr. Gates vaccine/serum along with masks murdered over 100-million people (500-million today if adjusted for population).

    Masks provide to the wearer (inhalation) 0% protection and in terms of exhaled air 0% in terms of aerosols and maybe 30% on the SARS-COV-2 virus (if it actually exists). <- From the AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons). ... ... What a cotton mask DOES is: -- In a short time causes *IRREVERSIBLE BRAIN DAMAGE* . As the brain is damaged it is not felt. Adults, youth and children's wearing masks for any length of time will likely develop DEMENTIA within 10-years as well as other medical complications. ... - *BROWN LUNG (Byssinosis)* is an lethal and irreversible condition caused by inhaling cotton particles into the lungs. Cotton particles cause debilitating pulmonary conditions which CANNOT be corrected later. It is essentially the same as BLACK-LUNG which coal miners get or POPCORN LUNG from people working in plants making instant popcorn. This is closely linked to recent electron microscopic investigations into nano-particles attached to the fibers. ... - The killer in 1918 from people wearing cotton masks was *BACTERIAL PNEUMONIA* (and Dr. Gates deadly experimental vaccine). .. - The build up of 'bad bacteria' in the mouth and the drying of saliva can lead to *HUGE DENTAL BILLS* : are teeth rot, cavities, gum disease (ie: Periodontal disease), oral-thrush (yeast overgrowth) and jaw bone can become diseased. Great time to be a dentist of a surgeon specializing in jaw bone surgery - bad for people whom will have huge bill and lifelong medical complications. Incidentally there's about 300+ friendly bacteria in the mouth and only about 4 or so bad ones. ... - EYE ISSUES are a huge issue as well as toxins removed by the lungs are directed into the eyes by mask seal leaks (ie: fogged glasses). ... - The PTFE in the 'blue disposable masks' is a known carcinogen. As one article puts it, ".. The masks contain (not sprayed with) PTFE which makes up Teflon along with other chemicals. I found and have posted the US patent to allow manufacturers to use PTFE as a filter in commercial masks… “breathing these for extended periods can lead to lung cancer.” .." ... - The masks have no standards or ratings (NIOSH, CSA..) , may be produced in 3rd world sweat shops (very dirty, unsterilized conditions), use various materials and designs and do not fit properly with seal leaks. The pore size is wrong for particle as small as viruses (if they even exist aka 'Germ Theory' vs. 'Terrain Theory'). They are NOT designed, tested, or certified for biological contamination reduction. ... - It prevents the body from electrically balancing. Many bacteria and so forth are like Van de Graph machine - the body needs to BALANCE electrical charges so one should not wear rubber soles without grounding straps (or better go barefooted once in a while) and you need to be able to exhale properly. Proper breathing and grounding (barefoot/straps) allows the body to operate correctly & in a neutral charge which will not attract foreign particles. ... - Many do not breathe properly to begin with and masks make this far worse. The lymphatic system removes about 70% of the bodies toxins and some wastes via respiration. It's powered by the diaphragm and not the heart. You probably seen lymph fluids if you've ever scrapped your knees, it's clear and like 'jelly' unless you're using your diaphragm. One must be able to take DEEP breathes using the BOTTOM (diaphragm) of the lungs. If you have a mask on you build up toxins - the 70% of toxins normally removed by breathing are trapped and build up within the body. This leads to cancer and many diseases in a short time. ... - Masks are bi-directional. They build up containments on the surfaces and one talks, breathes hard or coughs the containments on the outside are released in clouds. Filters should always be UNI-directional whenever possible. ... - Masks which get damp act as wicks pulling in containments. FDA surgical masks (banned in many Canadian malls) must be replaced: every 20-min max when wet, between patients, 40 minutes otherwise. This is in STERILE environments. ... - The argument about attachments to droplets doesn't make sense as most aerosols evaporate within a FRACTION of a second and most droplets within a few seconds leaving just the SARS-COV-2. Most viruses floating around (or are they endosomes) are not attached to anything - thus - a mask would have to be able to filter at that size (and cotton masks even if layered on top of each other) are not even close to being capable of this. ... - People don't use common sense and have no idea about proper donning and doffing procedures to prevent cross contamination, there is no leak test (the seals are poor), they touch them which you never ever do to PPE, equipment is not sterilized after use, and on and on. In other words people have been trained to contaminate themselves. ... - If you wear proper PPE (respirator and so on) you'd wash your hands 40-seconds with hot water and soap, touch the mask (say adjust), THEN AGAIN, wash your hands for 40-seconds with hot-water and soap again to prevent cross contamination. How many people at some point touch their masks, then at some point their face, eyes, nose? This is CROSS-CONTAMINATION. ... - SARS-COV-2 can last up to 28-DAYS on smooth surfaces like glass and plastics. Think product wraps in stores and smartphones (the average smartphone is 7 times dirtier then a public toilet seat). CROSS-CONTAMINATION. ... - SARS-COV-1 was spread via the 5F rule. The ACE-2 receptors of the lungs are only a secondary pathway. The primary means are the ACE-2 receptors of the GI tract (over 30-days). It's spread by urine, feces, gases but can also spread by ocular fluids, semen, blood, sweat and so forth. Are people so focused on a mask which doesn't work that they forget the PRIMARY transmission methods? Do they even know them? Did they learn nothing from Hong Kong in 2002 with SARS-COV-1? For example in one complex man had diarrheas. Thanks to leaky pipes, dry drain traps, bathroom ventilator fans it spread infecting 300 people and killing 35. SARS-COV-1 (89% the same as SARS-COV-2) attached to pollution particles or floats by itself so walking over a sewer grate is one method of transmission and WHY in Wuhan thy flooded the sewers with chlorine (especially outside large buildings and airports). ... Btw - Everyone has an estimated 380-TRLLION of viruses within them - it's called your VIROME . As one research article remarked, ".. "Every day, more than 800 million viruses are deposited per square meter above the planetary boundary layer -- that's 25 viruses for each person in Canada," said Curtis Suttle, virologist at the University of British Columbia in Canada. ..".

  13. Have they forgotten Dr. G//ates in 1918 and his experimental serum which resulted in over 100-million dying (500-million if the world had as many people as it does today).

    Excerpt: “..In a related report, the campaign group Americans for Tax Fairness estimates the collective wealth of America’s 651 billionaires has risen by $1.1tn over the same period. Frank Clemente of Americans for Tax Fairness said:
    “Their pandemic profits are so immense that America’s billionaires could pay for a major Covid relief bill and still not lose a dime of their pre-virus riches. Their wealth growth is so great that they alone could provide a $3,000 stimulus payment to every man, woman and child in the country, and still be richer than they were nine months ago.”..”

    “..Jeff Bezos, the founder and chief executive of Amazon, has watched his wealth rocket by $70bn since March to a record $185bn as hundreds of millions of people trapped at home turned to the online delivery giant to keep themselves fed and entertained ..”

  18. Testing (PCR) can be risky. Aside from the accuracy being as low as 0% if dialed up enough (there’s many examples of ‘positive tests’ from tap water, distilled water, applesauce, Coke, Diet-Coke, various fruits, birds and animals as well as nothing at all tested!) it can be used to covertly vaccinate (nano technology, nasal vaccinations have long been used on livestock) as well as DNA harvest a person.

    “.. The company has recently come under fire following a 60 Minutes exposé on the company’s use of COVID-19 tests to “collect, store and exploit biometric information” on American citizens, according to former U.S. intelligence officials. What’s more, a recent Reuters article linked the firm to the Chinese Communist Party’s military. ..”

    “.. BGI Group, the world’s largest genomics company, has worked with China’s military on research that ranges from mass testing for respiratory pathogens to brain science, a Reuters review of research, patent filings and other documents has found.

    The review, of more than 40 publicly available documents and research papers in Chinese and English, shows BGI’s links to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) include research with China’s top military supercomputing experts. The extent of those links has not previously been reported.

    BGI has sold millions of COVID-19 test kits outside China since the outbreak of the new coronavirus pandemic, including to Europe, Australia and the United States. Shares of BGI Genomics Co, the company’s subsidiary listed on the Shenzhen stock exchange, have doubled in price over the past 12 months, giving it a market value of about $9 billion. ..”

  19. 80% of Doctors in the US are rejecting taking the depop-shots (experimental medical DEVICE) and about 50% of nurses (in some places it’s 80% overall refusing). The private vaccine company masquerading as a quasi-governmental agency, the CDC, even admitted that 62% of US nursing-home workers were refusing it. I would assume they saw the effects it had on the elderly first hand.


    Source: *CDC report says 62 percent of nursing home workers refused COVID-19 vaccines*, Feb 1, 2021
    “.. The report from the CDC found that among 11,460 skilled nursing facilities that had at least one vaccination clinic between the middle of December and mid-January, nearly 78 percent of residents received the vaccine, compared with about 38 percent of nursing staff. ..”

  20. I noticed online that Kaiser has Diagnostic Centers in Cebu, at the Mall, probably not affiliated with Kaiser in California. Have you looked into these Facilities? Thanks

  21. How can anyone in their right mind support mass vaccination when well over 99% already recover without vaccines?

    1. @rgb711 They have a history of it. Example, everyone whom died during the Spanish Flu (which was American and not the flu) died from an experimental serum (vax) started out of Fort Riley (involved Rocker_feller Labs). The Doctor was Dr. Freder_ick L. G_ates. 100-million were killed, about, 500-million in today much more populated world. That was an early eugenics project, IMO.

  22. It sure took them a while to figure this out. The data has been available for a long time and their locked down is total voodoo

  23. I don’t comment very much but sorry I just felt I had to let it out.
    step one we have to change the conversation from letting foreigners into the Philippines to what is the daily starvation count. The conversation must be turned to everyday they lock down less foreigners will come to the Philippines and that will be permanent not temporary that is the conversation we have to turn this into what day they decide to let us in is becoming irrelevant because even when they let foreigners in who wants to be told what to do every step of the way That’s not freedom and most people from anywhere in the world are not going to want to spend their hard-earned money being in a vacation spot where you’re being controlled.

    1. Honestly I think covid is being used to purge the poor out of the cities. No national disaster for the starving or reach out to the Red cross. The President doesn’t want to relinquish control until 2023.

  24. Right now I’m in the USA in Florida I can travel anywhere I want to go I don’t even have to wear a mask and we’ve got the virus under control The scare tactics in the Philippines I’m very seriously considering not returning I have freedom here and to go from freedom to controlled existence in the Philippines I think not

  25. Don’t watch what they say watch what they do I have that standard for everyone and everything.
    I found that in the Philippines lying is rampant I know that firsthand seen it many many many times in the Philippines.
    By the way President dirty (duarte). Has just let Chinese company come into the Philippines to open up cell so now president dirty and his dirty CCP friends are going to be listening to every conversation in the Philippines way to go president dirty

  26. I was a frequent visitor to the Philippines in the past, but since Mr. Duarte has been in power I am very sceptical that it will ever return to anything like normal or at least normal for the Philippines. He seems to think that everyone who enjoyed visiting the Philippines in the past is just sitting at home waiting for his personal blessing to hop on a plane and return to carry on just like it used to be. I got news for ya Duarte, it aint so! I also as an American dont appreciate his if I snap my fingers the US will bow down to me and bless the Philippines with oodles of cash just for the privilege of keeping it free from Chinese occupation of its various sand bars and reefs. I personally dont care what the Chinese do to humiliate Mr. Duarte, but they will come up with something appropriate I am sure. Then he will blow his little tin horn and expect the Americanos to come to his rescue. There are places just as nice and closer to home for American that have been open to Americans in spite of the pandemic, Mexico for one, and I plan to stay around here. Maybe if the Philippines elects a more hospitable leader in the future, one who doesnt enjoy killing and jailing everybody he doesnt like, I might consider going back, but dont hold your breath. The Philippines will just have to learn to live without my tourist dollars.

    1. It will take over a decade to recover to 2019 numbers, maybe, longer. I won’t go with tests, quarantines, contact tracing, health passports, vaccines…and I’ve gone there since when Pres. Ramos was in power, terminal 2,3,4 were not yet built and about 1/2 the current population had not yet been born (no, I was never in the military).

      Another consideration was the way complete lack of leadership and planning for the lockdown. PAL not given refunds (just promises) didn’t help but the main issue was absolutely no aid in getting people back to their home nations. They just left them stranded there for months, some still are.

      Example, I still have a elderly extended family member stuck in the Philippines, a YEAR LATER. Many family members ended up WALKING to Manila airport as they cut taxis and buses. Walking to Manila airport in the heat – some elderly some with young children or infants. Then when they get there no one knows what going on, then flights cancelled. Rinse and repeat.

      People were stuck all over, trapped in the Philippines for months and the Philippines leadership was completely useless.

      I was heading there to visit my s-i-l. She had to go to get her FIRST dialysis treatment. They wouldn’t let her out of Manila after 6-hospitals in her area refused patients. They had clinics outside (provinces) but Manila shut down without warning. She did get in to one finally, they said a 2-days for dialysis, they wouldn’t let any family in. She died in a hallway a week later. She was months away from celebrating her 50th anniversary. So now you know what the Philippines does to their elderly, essentially murders them.

      Do you think anyone in their right minds trusts the idiots running things there? They could at any time just ‘lockdown’ and people would be stranded again, walking to the airports on foot again, after being promised flights having them cancelled (over and over).

      About the only ones going are idiots thinking with their small heads rather then their big ones or people whom have family’s there.

  27. Henry i have heard that the Philippines will be back to normal in early or mid of 2022. I got that info from a newspaper called the Philippine Today

  28. There is no pandemic Philippines is always trying to copy America The reason why Covid is overrated here in America because they want Trump out of the office now that Trump is no longer the president they are going to make it look like they fix covid. The death rate here in America are the same with or without Covid and that’s the bottom line.

    1. The Great Reset, is why they are doing this which included a massive population reduction. Anyone taking the depop shot is fu**ed.

  29. There was NEVER a actual real world reason to do any lockdown in any country. NO hospital system in any region in any county were ever overwhelmed in the last year with actual verified COVID-19 cases that required hospitalization. NONE!

Most of those in hospital had pre-existing conditions.

  30. My bet is the Philippines will be permitting “vaccinated” foreigners into their country sooner rather than later. Afterall, studies are profoundly demonstrating that the chance of getting or transmitting Covid post-vaccination is pretty much infintesimal. Thus, vaccinated foreigners would pose essentially zero threat to the populous and would create much-needed “money velocity” within the Philippine economy to abate and arrest this awful plague of hunger and starvation.

  31. Unfortunately, when covid restrictions end, (this year) the 2nd great depression begins. The real crisis is coming! Covid was used as a diversion to destroy humanity and to implement Agenda 21.

  32. Duterte is wrong and about the reasons for rising cases. It is fake science that masks are effective, social distancing is the dumbest of ideas, lock downs and the other dumb things most countries are using are based on pseudo science. The answer was Herd immunity from the beginning.

  33. The insanity is about to stop. Cases do not equal deaths. The death rate in the Philippines is .0010. Which means that it was never a pandemic.

  34. That’s good…hopefully that means we can start seeing your regular traveling and walking the streets and visiting restaurants vids again and no more covid talk anymore soon.

  35. hi Reekay,on the national news here in Australia, our prime minster mentioned that a few countries are going to donate the vaccine to south eastern countries ,later this year. good news i think cheers

    1. You’d have to be insane to take it, or, have a death wish.

      Lets view this the depop ‘jab’ another way. A passenger jet from concept to first jet is at least 10-years – and that’s mostly using proven technology and processes. Think: Boeing 737MAX. A vaccine/pharmaceticual drug takes about 10 to 15 years something like the mRNA much longer.

      Now lets say the airline manufacturer industry which is just about to go bankrupt, suddenly, the people with BILLIONS and BILLIONS of shares at stake:

      – in just 2 months comes out with a brand new airplane (concept to 1st jet),
      – it’s all 100% never seen before technology, there are no wings or jet engines and the materials have never been used before,
      – of the known 400 defects and health alerts (including death) are scrubbed from social media sites like Fa/ebook,
      – in some cases they will not tell anyone how it works,
      – they decide that due to CAD/CAM there’s no reason for tests, test pilots,
      – the 3 single tests that they did do all ended in disaster, the last killing 100% of the test pilots. They have decided no further tests are required and the reports are buried,
      – the airlines and all level of governments have laws passed to make it illegal to sue them for any damages or deaths and passengers assume all liability for injury or deaths,
      – attempts are made to keep the *voluntary* database which tracks issues (ie: crashes, failures, near failures..) on paper and not computerized, no one is told it exists and , less then 1% actually use it (or know about it),
      – all media is tightly controlled, all opposing views are destroyed
      – the entire world is told they MUST fly across the ocean at least twice in a month (however they fail to tell the people that this will become monthly, mandatory, if they ever want to buy groceries or work again),
      – no one worldwide is allowed to travel for a year before this take place using very, very, VERY ‘suspect’ reasons
      – early reports are huge issues, large numbers of deaths
      – the owners/shareholders just all happen to be hard core eugenicists and sociopaths whom think the world is overpopulated,

      … would that not sound a few ‘alarms’ inside your head???

  36. I’m wondering if this really reflect the reality of the situation due to the probability of how unaffordable it would be for a lot of Filipinos to go to hospital

  37. I also hope the Phillipines gov starts ssrv for retirees for 50 year olds as well, but good news☺️!!!

  38. Early treatment with $3 budesonide will reduce hospitalization and death by 95% according to a newly published randomized trial by Oxford. Sadly this treatment was recommended by a US doctor a year ago- he was then scathingly rebuked, threatened, and censored. His YouTube post had 5 million hits in a few days before being taken down.

  39. It isn’t about a virus it never was we know this now so the question is what is it really about, their either hiding something that about to happen or they are forcing their reset on us thru killing off the old sick, the poor and the useless eaters don’t take their needle God know what’s in it.

  40. Mar. 11—– My wife is 63 yrs of age and is still being locked down and can’t even go out to take care of her internet service problems ——–W HY ??????

      … would that not sound a few ‘alarms’ inside your head???

    2. This is a silly statement based on tv propaganda not science. The vaccine neither reduces infection or transmission and has been rushed through without adequate testing. Please stop this virtue-signaling misinformation

  41. I received a email from the American Embassy. It stated that they have no plans for the vaccine for Americans in the Philippines !! If you want the vaccine you will have to accept it here are travel back home to receive it.

    1. I live here in Manila..No tourists before October .Don’t get your hopes up…Nothing good is going on here..It’s getting worse.

  42. Pretty funny. We hear the same logic here in the US. If you lock down the hospitals are empty. Open up and hospitals start to fill and lock down again. In the Philippines you have a lot of smokers which covid can put into the hospitals. Here in the US we were able to barely hang on and developed treatments to reduce deaths which I suspect will not be available in the Philippines. This means hospital staff will be sick so even less help. With hospitals full, staff sick, there will be little help for people with non-covid illness. Kidney dialysis centers had a problems here. People hurt in traffic accidents slow to get help.

    People also think opening up will like magic, back to normal. But as we saw in Sweden, which had no lock down, their economy suffered almost as much as neighbor countries with lock down. The rub is people really don’t like risking their lives so they locked themselves down. The virus is the problem, but people blame lock downs…silly.

    Limiting capacity in businesses caused even more businesses because they were open but now spending money but no hope to breakeven.

    People focus on the death rate and feel OK with 2% death rate. But we have had a lot of what is called the “long haulers” who stay sick for months. Some people don’t die but need lung transplants. When that is combined with deaths you’re more in the 10% range.

    As for expats….age and obese are high risk factors. Sound like a expat profile?

    I get business is suffering. If Philippines unlocks the virus will spread, probably the newer types. Business will continue to suffer but you’ll add suffering from sickness and death. Yup, it’s pretty horrible. I say this because if I was an older expat there, I’d do what I did here in the US…dig a hole and crawl in. Don’t go near anyone for any reason. I had an N-95 respirator when this started for woodworking which I wore when stocking up on food.

    I don’t know how you all deal with lots of corpses. We used refrigerated trucks. Have a lot of those? Brazil did mass graves.

    I do hope it isn’t too bad there…but don’t see how it will be avoided.

    1. Excellent and insightful comment. We all want the pandemic to end and to return to normal… but unfortunately what we wish for doesn’t always come true.

  43. Hi Reekay’s, great info on all your channels, , you are so well informed, I have a question from one of your videos, you said there are girls money, girlfriend money, wife money, Whats are your guides, in terms of a little $, appreciate any feedback, thank you again, new subber

  44. What took them so long to realize what we already knew? Lockdowns cause bigger problems than covid

  45. This is BIG for reopening
    The elites are finally coming
    to their senses The PI people
    are starving with this lockdown

    1. If they don’t push idiotic things like vaccine passports and mandatory vaccinations your looking at a decade or more to get back to 2019 levels of travel.

      If they push thru the ‘great reset’ the Philippines population will be about 2-million when they are done.

  46. It’s about time that the powers that be are finally coming around to some normal thinking. It’s pretty clear that a 2% +/- death rate is the magic number and that this isn’t a major plague that everyone claimed a year ago. It’s time for people to resume their lives.

  47. People have to eat? Who’d a thunk it? Did Duterte and his cabal and his cronies ever go hungry? How’d he and his palace people enjoy their canned sardines and warehouse rice? Thanks for the update! Oh… and thank you CCP!

  48. Good to hear and long overdue! Hope to get back to my wife this year. I just don’t want to take trial vaccine…

  49. Reekay is still in whishful thinking mode. Nothing beats being positive. I sure would go mad being stuck in a flat for years, no matter if the companion is a Jennifer Lawrence with the IQ of Oprah.

  50. Great info from you Reekay. But still Dumaguete City doesn’t accept a tourist without providing a negative swab test result and a letter pf acceptance. My option B is Cebu…

  51. So we now have a target for vaccinations. 70 Million. “We are hoping to receive more than 1.4 million Sinovac vaccines this March” Super duper Sinovac. You iin line for Sinovac? Who DO YOU KNOW in line for Sinova? Dizon said the government plans to vaccinate up to 300,000 individuals per day to achieve its goal of inoculating up to 70 million. So a bout 1 million ever 3 days. 70 million in 210 days. 7 months. Easy Peasy. Open by October 15…you heard it here first. Does that make any sense at all? You heard it everyone, get your airlines reservations for October 15th. Now if we happen..just say happen…to miss that by a little….where are we? But is easy…we can watch every 3 days…another million…3 days another million…MARCHING steady to reopening by Dec 1 March 2021. Count along fellas. One………………………………..Two……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….Three. Back for more counting. I wish too.

    1. I prefer not to take the ‘Mark of the Beast’.

      Lets view this the depop ‘jab’ another way. A passenger jet from concept to first jet is at least 10-years – and that’s mostly using proven technology and processes. Think: Boeing 737MAX. A vaccine/pharmaceticual drug takes about 10 to 15 years.

      … would that not sound a few ‘alarms’ inside your head???

  52. I tell ya, it going to get brutal because we are now dealing with the extremely contagious variant of Covid-19.
    Yes it is true, people are getting very complacent.
    Stupidity keeps Covid-19 alive. If people just wear their facemask, we would have been back to business last November.
    This will be Brazil #2

  53. Following American policy, when you know we have over half a million dead dead here…mostly over 65. Hope you enjoy your hospital stay. Putting Grandma under the bus is heartbreaking.

  54. Yes agree with the financial part but the medical statement is BS rich people are looking at there wealth.

  55. Before The End Of The Year That’s Like Lucy Telling Charlie Brown To Kick The Football And We Know How That Works Out ,They Said Only Two Weeks To Flaten The Curve In USA, This Was A World Wide strategy to get rid of Donald Trump

    1. No, he was in the way of global government IMO as you saw in his UN speech but this was planned a long, long time. It’s about the Great Reset and the Beast system. The vax is a part of the Mark of the Beast, it will combine with the micro-needle patch system.

  56. Reekay thank you for the great news, sir. Butuan has stopped the Barangay pass check at the stores this past week. Also along with those reasons, Duterte see light at the end of the tunnel. Philippines is receiving the vaccines.

  57. is this true reekay mate? . I read today there is now a lockdown in manila starting March 11 due to a massive increase in variants!
    THere seem to be mixed messages here! I don’t doubt your source but different sources are giving differing information. Unless it changes so rapidly that mine is wrong lol. if so I apologise. we both know Philippine media info changes as quickly as Texas weather lol mate!

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea Hi i chat to someone in Manila and she said the new restrictions were in the the Paranaque city area

    2. the recent change to MGCQ across the PH still allows for specific barangays with high numbers of cases to do “localized (target) lockdowns”. but not the entire city, just a localized area with high numbers of cases.

  58. The best news i have heard for over 9 month’s. If they do open up to international tourists, will the passport be good for travel? i am in the USA. and please reply

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea what u think they will still allow expats stay 3yrs then go away for
      24hrs come back get anither 3yrs
      i pray stays same .i burned all bridges cant afford live in usa anymore before covid sold all
      moved to das marinas bouggt
      hair salon my lafyboy lover rented
      townhouse $200 was middkeclass at least in my mind
      if they change it im fucked

    2. @Richard Meadows before covid, you were getting what is called a, “visa upon arrival”. which was good for the first 30-days in the PH. it is likely they will resume that in the future.

      so, yes. you’ve always needed and gotten a visa upon arriving in the ph.

    3. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea yes i realize i need a passport but before it was all i needed so now I need a Visa as well?

    4. you will always need a passport to do international travel. in addition, the PH has to issue you a tourist visa as well to enter the country.

  59. I would like to see that happen too, but the Filipinos are not disciple enough to shut down the spread of Covid.

    Thailand a 7 day average of 62 cases, as of 10 Mar 39 new cases, which shows they are doing something right. Plus the second wave came from people illegally enter the country from Burma.

    Now, tourists in small numbers have started filtering back in. Businesses that sustained both waves are opening, and the streets are getting busier.

    Since the Philippines has a 7 day average of 3012 cases, as of 10 Mar 2880 new cases, something needs to happen.

    I agree that there is no need for a lockdown, but there is a need to stop the movement. As long as people can travel Province to Province, Covid is not going away.

    If each Mayor of the Provinces wants to allow the people to roam knowing they have cases, then he/she has to deal with the outcome. Those Mayors that close their borders will be thanks later for putting their foot down.

    As long as there is a movement within the Provinces and country, it will not come to a halt. Thailand shut down movement within its Provinces.

    There is only one way to shut Covid down, and that shut down movement until there are no cases.

    1. @travelerwithstyle Testing PRC can be risky? Ok, front liners are getting infected at the hospitals. Why? Procedures and carelessness. Swamp with people will always be dangerous. It comes with the job of being in the medical field. Soldiers don’t service their country without risk, but that is what they volunteered to do, just like everyone that volunteered to work in the medical field. Shit happens, and we have to deal with it regardless of its circumstances.

      What does all the rest have to do with containment? Shut down the movement until you have control of the spread. Going to the hospital because I think I have it, my chance of getting it has increased. Do you think hospitals are clean?

      If someone has it, they will know within 14 days of contact at home from going to get food. A medical team can test them at their residents, and if they are positive, action can be taken to test the entire family.

      Long as people are out in the streets or don’t want to stay home, what do they expect? The spread of covid continues.

      Bottom line, you know of a better way?

    2. @The Truth Will Set You Free Testing (PCR) can be risky. Aside from the accuracy being as low as 0% if dialed up enough (there’s many examples of ‘positive tests’ from tap water, distilled water, applesauce, Coke, Diet-Coke, various fruits, birds and animals as well as nothing at all tested!) it can be used to covertly vaccinate (nano technology, nasal vaccinations have long been used on livestock) as well as DNA harvest a person.

      With the latter look into G//ates, C//CP, and so forth – they are making a fortune harvesting DNA for online biometric databases in China and various Intel operations.
      ….
      You’ll also find about 98% of the pharmaceuticals linked to DNA harvesting and

      Source: *Why is B//ill G//ates Funding Chinese DNA-Harvesting Tech?*
      According to reports B//ill G//ates is funding Chinese firms which are gathering data using DNA harvesting technology. The research is fueled by Covid testing allegedly.

      Excerpts:
      “.. The company has recently come under fire following a 60 Minutes exposé on the company’s use of COVID-19 tests to “collect, store and exploit biometric information” on American citizens, according to former U.S. intelligence officials. What’s more, a recent Reuters article linked the firm to the Chinese Communist Party’s military. ..”

      “.. 1. B//ill and M//elinda G//ates F//oundation funds 98.2% of the pharmaceuticals known for DNA harvesting and alteration in the Western hemisphere

      2. Bill and his father sit on the international board of eugenics
      ..”

      “.. BGI Group, the world’s largest genomics company, has worked with China’s military on research that ranges from mass testing for respiratory pathogens to brain science, a Reuters review of research, patent filings and other documents has found.

      The review, of more than 40 publicly available documents and research papers in Chinese and English, shows BGI’s links to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) include research with China’s top military supercomputing experts. The extent of those links has not previously been reported.

      BGI has sold millions of COVID-19 test kits outside China since the outbreak of the new coronavirus pandemic, including to Europe, Australia and the United States. Shares of BGI Genomics Co, the company’s subsidiary listed on the Shenzhen stock exchange, have doubled in price over the past 12 months, giving it a market value of about $9 billion. ..”

    3. @Michael Gray So what are you disputing and what country? I am in Thailand, I know what happening here. My family in in the Philippines, Leyte. The wife is a nurse. I don’t comment on things I am not tracking. I know what has happen here in Thailand and it is not happening in the Philippines. If it was happening, the cases would not be out of control. So what are you disputing? And by the way, people need to stay home. Does the country have enough kit to test everyone? No. So why allow them to come to the hospital. Contain it at home and if they die while the medical personnel are out testing, then it was Gods calling.

    4. I dispute pretty much everything you have said, I study this everyday and saw 125,000 patients in the ER as a doctor not these imbecile bureaucrats. Crikey next we will be driving cars at 10 km/hr to “save lives”

  60. My finances sister has TB and covid has disrupted medications that is just one small example of the disaster the lockdowns have been

    1. She could claim she has covid, so they can kill her in the hospital and claim “another victim of covid”

  61. just for your info the CDC said yesterday that 78% of those hospitalized where obese , not shitting you , being overweight is dangerous when combined with covid , but even that is a small percentage
    thought you would like to know check it out , I was amazed

    1. several factors lead to the death of many, yes over weight ,diabetic ,high blood pressure ,lung problems and heart problems any of these and getting virus lead to hospital I have two factors so very cautious and live in a unpopulated state in usa plus now have been vaccinated

    2. Many obese people with diabetes
      end up getting hospitalized from Covid
      from my experience That is just the reality everyone must accept

    3. that doesn’t surprise me. being overweight puts a strain on the body in so many ways. the heart, the back, internal organs, blood circulation, etc.

  62. I went yesterday with my two years old son to Cebu doctors’ university hospital and nurse told me that they don’t have eny rooms available in the hospital that olso in private rooms they but moore beds in the rooms because lots of covid in Cebu

    1. i’m sure some areas have more cases than others. while other areas (like siquijor) have few cases.

  63. Yes no need to be lockdown, covid will be there forever but only some steps need to take serious like face mask, social distance

  64. Other than the masks and stuff our life has felt pretty normal for a while now here in Laguna. I like yourself have been telling anyone that would listen they had to ease up as people had to eat. Thanks for keeping everyone updated 🙂

  65. Reekay, as a frequent visitor to the Philippines from my home in Israel over the past 8 years, I am dubious about the data given by a dictatorial, corrupt government. I love the Philippines and its people. However, I pose the question: Are the figures on those affected by the pandemic realistic? Of 108 million population that has not vaccinated 99% of it’s population, how many really are infected? Alternately I ask – are the low numbers of the sick, of the vacant percentage of hospital beds etc a result either of data ignorance/misrepresentation or due to the dispersal of the national population across more than 7,000 islands? Like here in Israel we all want to get our economies back on its feet.

    1. i’d say without insider data, we can only speculate. but on a more practical level, changes in policy are what we will have to work with in the interim.

  66. Hopefully not too late this year, I heard july, but lets see, want to spend 8 weeks vacation to explore many places there 😀

  67. I said before that May or June is a very feasible date for international travel. Europe is also looking for preferential treatment to those who are vaccinated. April is also possible but I am not as confident with that early.

  68. All countrys are almost open again for tourist, and Many others open already since Many months ago, that virus Will be always with us , we need to Life with that virus, we cannot stay all Life at home, Philipinne should open for the foreigners assap

  69. I like the current “path of reasoning” & do hope the best & it stays current . It would of been commendable & proactive with foresight if done 6 months when the financial situation wasn’t in dire straits as it seems to be now.

  70. I believe if they will reopen the border for tourist,it a big help of our economy in philippines,but still they gonna tight the border so sad

    1. @lorenzo magazzeni destroy the economy, not make sense, if you destroy the economy the business dont have income ,5 stars hotel ,nice the problem its nobody cares and mostly of international tourism are waiting not just to come ,they are crossing fingers specially to come without quarantine rules, people is not stupid and money have rip date ,if you want destoy the economy who wins, with nuclear weapons who wins and is not causual that a nuclear war will bring you theory if goverments want sucide themselves, not make sense, money cant flow between ruins

    2. You still don’t get it, do you ? They want to destroy the economy, and pick up the pieces at garage sale prices, Philippine airlines, how can it survive ? The big 4/5 star hotels ?

  71. The virus cannot subsist in hot climates. There is a 99.98% recovery rate. These are facts easy to verify. Go to BRAND NEW TUBE to get unbiased truths the mainstream media won’t talk about. We are being played.

  72. My bags are packed. Literally. I was all set to move to Duma last year until the lockdown hit. This news is a good sign for sure. Thx for keeping an eye on things for us.

    1. Duma is expensive and too many expats. Come down where we live San Juan Batangas. way way cheaper. Layia beach is there.

    2. @Bob Stewart Hi Bob …Yeah can’t wait my girlfriend lives in Dumaguete as well. I was there a few years ago and can’t wait to see her.

    3. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea yea I’ve been there a few times as my gf lived in Zamboanguita. Thanks to our buddy Vern Danke he coaxed me to check it out a couple years ago.

    4. you’ll enjoy duma once you’re there. i had a great time there for over 2-years. made lots of friends and enjoyed the surrounding areas for the beaches, waterfalls and resorts. hoping to see you fly soon and enjoy for yourself. 🙂

  73. What is the Palace? The office of the president? And while this news sounds good, the Filipino govt seems to act haphazardly, as if they followed orders from overseas. They may change their mind tomorrow.

    1. “Malacañang” is the official name for the PH Presidential Palace. similar to the White House for the USA.

  74. hello reekay from Manhattan nyc. hurry up and open up the Phillipines for us foreigners. I know the Phillipines is taking big hit from no tourists. I’m ready to come visit my lady. I already received my first dose of Moderna vaccine, just waiting on my last dose.

  75. Thank you so much for the info. Looking forward to reopen the borders for tourist foreigner.. hopefully they will realize that many people commit suicide by they can’t reunite there love ones and hungry and no jobs.

    1. @Chris Bangkok We humans have what we call an immunization system that protects healthy people from viruses. The mandate to be vaccinated is also BS and I’ll not let anyone stick that crap into my system. A true vaccine from Johnson and Johnson maybe doable, but not Maderna or Pfizer.

    2. The Philippines government is loving the control .. yes open up the borders especially to vaccinated people

    3. So true , another thing is the Government’s lack of good judgement and all are marching in step , they are taking orders from the Globalist , world bank and others . For me and millions of others we see the insanity of this and the total destruction of economys . Let’s hope for the best . Take care

    4. yes, the suffering people of the PH have gone through, i believe, has not been accurately reported. it’s more than losing income.. it is stress, depression, suicide, marital problems, hungry kids and so much more. 🙁

  76. Solution to boosting the economy? Open up for international tourists, the numbers will be nothing more than a trickle for many months and will remain in small numbers for at least a year. We’ve seen this with Thailand who expected big numbers of international tourists which of course did not materialize unless one believes 59 visitors to be a windfall.

  77. Then why in the heck are we still under GCQ in Davao city. City Gate Mall looks like a ghost town with 70% of the stores closed.

    1. Things are getting worse here not better…Cases are rising…Metro Manila cities are under curfew…No tourists will be allowed until at least October…I live in Manila.

    2. My thought is that Duterte wants to PROTECT Davao City from foreign invasion when he starts to open the Philippines for international tourists. He wants to also PROTECT his daughter, the Mayor of Davao and to PREVENT an epidemic of Covid from multiplying there.

    3. because some political leaders who don’t have much of a political profile try to get one by being extra hard and dictatorical during Corona “Pandemic” Same here in Germany.

    1. @The Truth Will Set You Free you are an idiot! cases are fake PCR was never designed to test for viruses… not disciplined?? masks and shields 24 7 is not enough for you?? You must be a libtard!

    2. Maybe you’ll see. It is a risk. Many people here in the US (40% or so) think covid vs lockdown. But that’s always been silly as Sweden showed. Sweden with no lockdown has only done a little better in their economy. The problem is when covid cases start to explode in a country old fat tourists don’t want to go there.

      Maybe after the old fat tourists have been vaccinated for awhile they will travel.

      We’ll see.

      For sure if it spreads there like here in the US it’s not going to be pretty.

    3. @Joseph Drawbond ,.,. If you knew that Thailand had 40 Million tourists in 2019 compare to The Philippines 7 Million tourists in the same year. You just can’t beat it even you open it earlier.

    4. I would like to see that happen too, but the Filipinos are not disciple enough to shut down the spread of Covid.

      In fact, tourists in small numbers have started filtering back into Thailand. Businesses that sustained both waves are opening, and the streets are getting busier.

      As long as there is a movement within the Provinces and country, it will not come to a halt. Thailand shut down movement within its Provinces. It worked!

      There is only one way to shut Covid down, and that shut down movement until there are no cases.
