So there I was.. just minding my own business at theICM mall in Tagbilaran, Bohol.. I’d been doing about the most mundane thing you could think of; buying groceries. I had just left the checkout stand and when I turned the corner what should I see before me but more beautiful Filipinas in bikinis and heels than I could focus on.
ICM mall is, that I know of at this writing, about the biggest mall on Bohol. I’ll have to check out more of the island but from what I’ve seen downtown, the BQ Mall is smaller and not as upscale as the ICM. ICM has a decent showing of American franchises including KFC and Pizza Hut. What I really like is that any movie, any time, at the theater is only 100 pesos. (about $2.25) I’ve been catching more new movies since arriving here than ever before back in the States. (Just watched ‘Iron Man 3’ a few days ago.)
Even when there isn’t a beauty contest going on up on the stage.. on any given day at the malls here it’s just a constant parade of lovely, young Filipinas. It makes the 1 and a half mile walk out of the jungle so worthwhile.

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!
