Kristine – Model for MyLovelyFilipinaGifts

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 Kristine, who can also be seen at my website; since she is the model I chose to represent my site. She's a well-grounded, honest, smart and kind woman who I can count on to 'tell it to me straight'. She's been such a help to me in learning the culture differences here in the Philippines. She's a kind soul and a good friend.

  2. Way to go Henry…your website is looking great very informative and glad to see your having fun and faithfully loving my Country..More power and God Bless you always.
