Author: Reekay

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. Good for you. I will retire soon in Canada and will be Traveling to Florida and in future, probably the Philippines too.

  3. Hey there, just checked back in to see how you are doing. My wife is Thai and have been following mostly Thai post lately. Looks like you are doing well. Take care.

    1. yes, life is good. 🙂 we had such a great, relaxing time at bantayan. we’ll likely return for a second trip at some point. meanwhile, cebu has been comfortable for us, all things considered. 🙂

  4. So beautiful there,Henry really love how your doing your videos, editing and what not! Looks like you have found your love, peace and harmony. Gyros looked yummy.
    Take care guys.

  5. Ha, ha, ha…. you are in the Philippines enjoying Greek food.. I was living in Siem Reap, Cambodia enjoying Mexican food.
    The things we do….. LOL…. I love the tropics… The only place I ever was in the Philipines was Manila…. and just touring the city while waiting for a flight conection…

  6. Great area for swimming with nice clear water views! Enjoy your last day there but I’m sure you guys will return!

  7. I appreciate all your videos particularly this series on Bantayan . Also the tips from your your subs . Leaving in a few days to spend 5 relaxing days there at Ogtong Cave resort . Did you bring your helmets ? I’m on the fence about wearing a rental lol

  8. Great times bro hahahaha. Wishing we were there!! Pls you have got to take us here. Ill pay everything just eanna chill with you guys. Is there a place where we can grill out or have food delivery and just make a whole day of it?

    1. I think Americans will be the among the last countries to be welcomed back to the Philippines post covid travel. Worse, Americans might soon be required to get a visa prior to flying to the Philippines.

  9. On the south side of the island, near the beach, there is Ogtong Cave Resort and in there you will find a fresh water pool in a cave below ground. It’s nice and cold in there for a break from those really hot sunny days and it’s really nice to have fresh water to swim in. Just over from the cave pool there is a cliff you can jump off too.

  10. Ming Ming said “Hey Joe, you listening? THIS is where you leave the fish when you get back. Make it a big one, there’s three of us now and more later. Don’t be a Cheap Charlie and bring us cheap Bangus. We like Tuna.”

  11. Great place to swim, alot of kids are enjoying. sometimes the best places are the ones that are out of the way. The food looks tasty, thank you for sharing . remain safe

  12. Did you make it to Sandira Beach? If not, too bad. It’s just down the road from “The Ruins” and is the best beach on the island, one of many….Kota Park at the north end of the island is also worth the trip.

  13. Really nice video that gave me a lot of inspiration for my own videos! Enjoyed it from the start to the end. Keep making awesome videos. Thanks a lot and good luck in the new year

  14. Thats awesome! after this pandemic lightens up.. i’d love to go diving there… and swim where you guys were! great video!

  15. Very nice,this is what I like. Saw a few male sharks in the area after a beautiful mermaid……lol….thxs guys enjoy

  16. Reekay what health insurance do you have while in the Philippines? I tried to search on your link above (squaremouth) but it’s useless, comes up with no results. I’m planning to reside in the Philippines once they allow tourists again.

    1. Safteywing offers 250k of insurance billed monthly for a little as 40 usd per month..worldwide coverage. For major medical protection try Cigna worldwide or Allianz.

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea I don’t think so. Because we used to have dogs and cats who inbred themselves yet they had long tails.

    2. i was told by someone years ago that cats and dogs will have extremely short and curly tails due to inbreeding.

    3. They are everywhere here in Cebu. Short-tailed cats and even without tails at all. There are even cats with eyes each with different color, brown and green, brown and yellow, yellow and blue, etc.

  17. Hello again! Love your videos! I contacted you a few months ago about how to see my fiancee. I used webwed and got married online . 10 months of what’s app, never met in person, now together in Tacloban. We couldn’t be happier! We want to move to Dumaguete. Is there any travel advice you have ? Thankyou! JIM from Oregon 3 weeks ago!

    1. I know it’s crazy but I never met her in person until 3 weeks Ago! There was a scare at the airport in South Korea. The man said I couldn’t continue to the Philippines on the 9a visa.I said I could please check with your supervisor. She came over and checked the computer first then said “OK let him in”

  18. Under Suspicion, starring Gene Hackman….
    Are you trying to tell me
    that you don’t like them young?
    You’re twice divorced,
    single with a vengeance.
    Who do you talk to
    in a martini bar?
    The best-looking girl
    you can get away with, that’s who.
    And she’s not 50.
    Probably mid-30s.
    Of course, in their 20s- Hey.
    Now we’re talking.
    And how about teenage girls?
    We loved them then.
    Why should anything change now?
    What does he possibly see
    in a girl that young?
    What in the world
    do they talk about?
    If I want to discuss the S&P 500,
    I’ll call my broker.
    Young girls don’t talk.
    They laugh.
    They live.
    They’re in the moment.
    And every night is the night.
    And their bodies
    are hard and tight…
    and smooth…
    the way skin is supposed to be.
    And saying so…
    doesn’t make me a pervert.
    Men can’t say shit anymore.
    We’re all browbeaten by youth-obsessed
    old bitches fresh from chemical peels.
    Still want us to open their doors,
    pay their way.
    Yes, Victor,
    I love young women.
    At least I’m honest enough
    to say so.
    fucking percent guilty.
