Baby – the Pirate Maid

Author: Reekay

After 49 years living in Southern California, USA, I decided to move to the Philippines despite never having been here before. I spent a year getting all the information I could online and in July, 2012, I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself first to Mactan and then began my trek through Cebu, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong and now living in Cebu City, here in the amazing Philippines.

Starting in January of 2019, I will begin a slow trek through Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and possibly Malaysia, China and Japan. My itinerary is open with no big rush since I hope to share in detail what each place is like as I enjoy it for months at a time.

I am a single man taking an honest look at all that Southeast Asia has to offer, one day at a time. I hope you find my channel informative and/or entertaining. 🙂

I hope you will make use of the links I provide as they help to support some of the costs of making this channel possible. Thanks!


  1. This is 'Baby' (Eugenie).. We met one night when I stopped at her BBQ-skewer place along the road for some dinner. We kept in touch and I later hired her as my maid. Since then she's become a very good friend. Imagine if Drew Barrymore had been born a Filipina Pirate Princess.. that's 'Baby'. She's raw, funny and always makes me laugh.

    1. And even better.. she's been a masseuse so, I pay her for massage as well as laundry, works out well for both of us. Plus she's just got the funniest sense of humor.. total blast to hang out with. She's got a boyfriend (sort of), so we just keep it at 'friends'.
