Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat and spent 1999 living in Vietnam.

Share with me my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Hopefully you find my observations helpful in your own adventures.

  1. Hi Reekay,Ive been following many of your topics with great interest,not only do i find them very informative,i also enjoy your commonsense approach and your down to earth way of delivering the message.Im coming over to visit the Philipines mid next year.Ive been talking online to women there on and off and have decided to follow your advise,and do the talking etc when i get there.One thing ive noticed is there appears to be a lot of single mums looking for a man.What im interested in is how do these ladies survive,as ive been told theres no welfare there.Look forward to your reply,thanks keep up the good work..Kevin.

    1. From what I’ve seen, up close and personal, many single moms survive by working a job 6 days a week that only pays about $3 to $4 usd a day. And that’s if they have a ‘good job’. Many work for just $2 usd a day. It’ a hard life for most. Often they have to leave their kids with the grandparents in order to get work. I know a Filipina who rides a motorcycle and trike from the hills to her jobsite 3 cities away just to have a job. It’s rough.

      Other single moms get by just being supported by their parents. They may not have any job skills or transportation.
