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. Maybe I’m just lucky, I have never been asked for a onward ticket in either the Philippines or Thailand. Been back and forth a few times. I always dress neatly so maybe they think I’m a business guy.

  3. Stick with the same airline or subsidiary,for example from Brisbane to Cebu,Singapore Airlines to Singapore then Scoot (subsidary of SIA) to Cebu.Transit is the key word,with the one airline company your luggage will be transferred from one flight to the other.DON’T ever go through immigration under any circumstances to collect your bags,it’s all over.The flight Brisbane,Australia to Cebu via Singapore has to be on the one ticket,your luggage Brisbane to Cebu only.My problem with outgoing ticket from the Philippines after one month is not the immigration officer in the Philippines,it’s the airline at your origin,Air Asia used to relish asking you where your outgoing ticket was.This is what i’ve gleaned over the last week or so,someone might have a different interpretation,please let us know.

  4. Did you upload the RTPCR test to the one health pass from your email confirmation of your negative Covid test for your flight? pdf?

  6. I’m the first comment! Yeah. Vern, You can make it! I did 16 days in Quarantine Jail in a Manila BOQ Hotel. I went crazy. 6 days .. you can do it. It is the last 11 days that killed me. Felt like jail. Vlogging was the only thing that kept me sane !!! lol..

  7. I am fully vaxed including the booster. My 3 year time is this coming October 2022 so I will need to do my visa run. I have my vax cards but all attempts to obtain either my LGU Vacination Certificate or WHO yellow card have failed…evidently they are not on top of it…..I was wondering if you could reach out to other expats here in NCR to see what their experience has been? I have some time of course but I like to be prepared with time to spare. Thanks so much….(American tourist)
