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.

  1. If you are seeing this it means I am now enjoying home-made tamales in Southern California! 🙂
    Vi and I are still madly in love and now doing the LDR thing until borders open up. Lots and lots of details coming up in 2 big updates. I will upload them after I get internet access set up in California.

    All good and exciting things going on. 🙂

  2. …he may not be coming back here for a long, long time. The Philippines is totally locked down to regular tourist visas (His would be 9A) issued at the airport. Must be something really serious knowing the trip is a one way ticket with no foreseeable return.

  3. Man, I can’t wait to get back to Cebu when restrictions get lifted. Thanks for your videos!!!

  4. Thanks for the update. Seems a lot of vloggers and expats need a break from the Philippines restrictions now..

  5. I hope you are aware that once you leave the Philippines you cannot just return back unless you have a residence visa. Have a safe trip.

  6. im lost .. had no idea you were going back home.. must have missed some videos .. will Reekay be able to get back in the Philippines?

  7. Wow, Back in California? What’s up with that? Now your in the same boat as the rest of us who want to go back to the Philippines.

  8. Just curious, why did you fly westward or the long way instead of the usual way you fly, via South Korea?.

  9. Sigh if I didn’t have to come back to the states to provide for my girl, I wouldn’t have left. Here you leaving.

  10. Hmmmm..rushing home for JABs…following WilDav? 😉 Hope all is fine! Sana ol…not pa asa! 😛

  11. Reekey you’ll find So Cal is a lot more open than the Philippines. What’s the plan, are you back for good? What about Vi? We need a full update please…

  12. WOW, this is a SURPRISE to say the least. What’s going on?

    As for the lounge….That is a good deal….In the Japan’s lounge in Narita, they even have FULL BODY MASSAGE CHAIRS. I often fell asleep during the massage!! I love lounge….Are you going back to visit your mother? I heard that US Citizens required VACCINE SHOTS to enter the US….please clarify. Thanks…

  13. Ok… To say “I DON’T UNDERSTAND” would be the greatest understatement of the decade. Leave. When you know you can’t get back, going thrugh Doha, doubles your trip time. And just generally, “WTF were you thinking ????? Well good luck and tell your Mom I hope she’s well. Good luck my friend….

  14. There used to be an overnight room, dinner and breakfast on Korean Air en route to the Philippines included in a very reasonably priced ticket but that was in the 1980’s.

  15. Henry can you get back in the philippines ? im married my wife in Biliran an my visa on hold till after April 30

  16. now ur stuck in usa like the rest of
    us,,,unless u know something
    we dont? u cant go back. so what
    about ur girlfriend??? u left her behind ?? not our business but ur lifes on youtube so we ask anyway

  17. Have to be honest felt sad you left the Philippines but i understand you have to do what is best for you i love how you always give such great advise on everything, So many vloggers are leaving the Philippines not many good ones i know left now. I am supposed to be moving to the Philippines soon but sure does make you bit weary when so many people are trying to leave there.

  18. I thought 15-17 hour flight would be hell, but 25+ the long way? Now, if there were a nice cruise between the US and Philippines, I’d look into that option. Be safe and hope the rest of the trip goes/went well.

  19. I couldn’t get out of Calif soon enough now live in Vegas and love it there’s nothing I miss about calif except for a few friends Calif is a dating hell hole

  20. Hi mmmm tamales…. mmm delicious..ride the waves til pi opens….ok cool !!you must see some light at end of the tunnel right…can get your c19 shot too..worked in Doha for several years…that’s a new airport to me..

  21. WTF ?? You must have given up your apartment and sent your girl.home. Why ? Because this could be many months before your allowed to return. I used JRC in Cebu to convert my tourist visa to a 13 A. I cant see things getting open here this year.

  22. I can’t believe that flying from the Philippines to California is that way round ,, hop across the Pacific to Hawaii and your already in American territory ,,, hey ho

  23. In my thoughts the best content I’ve ever came across by YouTube creator have a great trip Henry

  24. So what did you have to accomplish in order to fly into Doha, ie swab tests and so forth??

  25. I flew QatarAir from NewYork to Manila…..great Airline and food !! Will you change planes in Philly ??

  26. I must’ve missed a couple of your videos why is Henry heading back home usually he doesn’t do that until the holidays plus if you head back to the states you might not be able to get back to the Philippines for a long time do you know how this country is with the pandemic you can leave but you can’t come back until they open back up for international flights in tourist

  27. Hi Reekay, well that’s a surprise, I didn’t know that you were going back home, I hope everything is ok. I thought you couldn’t go back to Philippines if you left ?. Looking forward to seeing more updates, take care.

  28. I like the idea of the lounge. I am going to try and book through Qatar or Frankfurt so that it breaks the trip into two semi equal parts and take a shower in the middle of the trip.

  29. Hello Henry and I didn’t even know you were heading g back to the USA. Enjoy your stay in California and stay safe my friend!

  30. Wow, a lot of vloggers have gone back now. Enjoy all that food back in SoCal. I miss it, especially those tacos, enchiladas, steaks and more, my home town is HB in SoCal. Will you be back soon, vlogging in the Philippines?

  31. Hope you still keep producing content while you are in Cali, the themed relationship and life lessons monologue videos like from the early days are the BEST!! So you can still it those out even if you are not in the Philippines, and sure hope you do.

  32. Hi Henry, my 36 months in country is up and I also need to head back to the US until things open up. Can you tell me where you booked your ticket? I would also like to try out Doha and the lounge access. Thanks

  33. Gosh you’re courageous Rickey, been doing the LDR for over a year and a half and it gets discouraging. Hopefully we get good news soon indeed…

  34. I didn’t know you were returning to the US right now. I must have missed it. Have a great trip home.

  35. Wow, glad you made it home safe, glad you and Vi are still together and now for the million questions I and everyone will have for you Henry….
    Cant wait to see the videos and live chats….

  36. Henry, surprise update,, As you prob know.. its summer today sunday , Santa Ana’s and hot 90s for your comfort.. See ya in Cali soon

  37. Thanks!! I need to get back to Arizona soon. How are you going to re enter the Philippines? Please share your trip route and cost when you have a chance. Safe travels!!

  38. When I flew thru Doha they took us to the smaller airport and the food was bad. I flew on Qatar airways to the Philipinnes

  39. Honestly I am anxious to hear more details about what plans you have. Interesting decision you made about returning to the US, especially since we all have no idea when the Philippines will reopen to international tourists. I do wish you well and look forward to more updates!!!

  40. Happy trails, do not envy you. I have had enough traveling. I’m so glad it is all over and I can rest easy with my 13a permanent resident visa. I checked the flights for grins and you got a good itinerary. Look forward to the updates.

  41. Excellent…. Good luck and safe travels…. Thanks for providing such nice views and information… I have referred many people to you channel because you have a practical and realistic approach for a Man who would consider moving and living overseas…

  42. I keep getting ads for flights via Doha to Cebu. I’d love to go. But how can a person enter the PI? I don’t get that part.

  43. Bathroom Reminds me of Incheon. Except it they had those itty bitty bath towels that should be hand towels

  44. I’ve never traveled to Doha Airport when going to the Philippines but hopefully in June I will be. With A LOT OF LUCK.

  45. Are you flying Qatar airlines? What was the name of the lounge. Some credit cards offer free lounge access. There’s also priority pass where you can pay one price for a subscription for any of their lounges for a whole year. Some lounges are a member of it, some are not…

  46. This is a surprise. On your way to LA. Alone. And cannot return till they allow foreign visitors. Unless there is a twist in this tale. Waiting for the big update.

  47. Looks like a great airport..I’ve only been to Abu Dhabi which doesn’t seem as nice. Although Etihad airways was amazing.
