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. Get well Reekay. Have watched you since 2012, but never comment. I bet you’re glad your married at this point. 🙂

  2. Glad to see you are doing better. Just be careful on the foods that you eat over there, parasites all types of bacterial infections comes for bad foods so please be very careful and make sure the food is not old and make sure the food is very hot.

  3. Hi Rekay and Vi . The lactopafi drink is good to rebuild the beneficial bacteria in the stomach. Take care

  4. Its good to see you smile Henry. Take a rest and a break to fully heal. Best wishes, Chris.

  5. Let us know how much your surgery and hospital stay cost and if you have insurance what they covered.

  6. Back in the day, when an appendix burst, they would pull out all of your intestines and lay them on your chest and wash every inch of it with antibiotics. But before that, they would wash out your intestinal cavity with antibiotics as well. Glad that they didn’t have to do that to you. Get well soon.

  7. Glad your feeling better you look tired obviously. By the way the stubble looks great you should grow a beard!

  8. Hope you have a speedy recovery. I am sure you will be back to yourself soon. take care and maybe will meet some day when i am there. ok bye take care

  9. I have seen you look better than you appear now. Do not rush your return to normal daily activities but do some walking a few times a day without exhausting yourself. We don’t bounce back like we did when we were in our youth. Stay the course.

  10. Hello my friend I hope you heal fast and you’re off again on some new adventure take care

  11. Hi Reekay, glad to see you’re on the mend. I have to say you made me chuckle a little bit when you stated you crashed sky diving twice in the same day. Normally a crash sky diving could kill someone the first time… But then I realized what you were talking about ” hard Landing” correct? Kudos to you for sky diving! Btw, when you’re feeling better could you do a review on your hospital experience; admission procedure, associated deposits requirements, food, treatment, private room? ….Thanks and speedy recovery! J&M

  12. A ruptured appendix is nothing to fool with. I went four weeks before they caught mine. Five weeks in the hospital and three operations. Took two years for me to recover. You will have better luck than me. Stay positive, you will recover.

  13. Lots of rest, native chicken soup, and our prayers will get you up and running soon.

  14. Hi Reekay, wish you a speedy recovery, take all the time you need to relax and recover. I think you have a great nurse living with you, making sure that everything is being looked after. All the best.

  15. Enrique, I don’t mean to be personal but, what did the final bill add up to be from your hospital stay? If you don’t feel comfortable answering that, I fully understand. My apologies for the intrusion

  16. You got lady luck, Henry. A burst appendix usually results in anaphylactic shock that disorients the entire body. Someone up there wants you around for a reason.

  17. R&R with Vi taking care of you is just what you need. Speedy recovery Reekay and best wishes to you both

  18. Henry I hope you will share the financial details on this ordeal , I wish you a full recovery

  19. All i can say is good to see you at the house and get really well soon . That was some ordeal you had. take care.

  20. Hang in there bud! When you’re feeling better, you should put a video out talking about the hospitals there and how they compare to western hospitals (especially now with your new, experienced insight). Get well soon!

  21. WOw! Hope you get better soon! I do know how you feel – I had the same thing happen when I was in my late 20’s…at that time that kept me in the hospital for a week (ugh!), then off work for another week while it healed and the antibiotics worked thier magic. Sorry you had to go through that, it IS extremely painful!

  22. Wow I’m glad you’re OK a lot of people die when their appendix burst because of the infection but sounds like you were in good hands. You just take your anabiotic’s on time probably with some food make sure you take all of them and keep us posted good to hear from you.

  23. You’re lucky. When mine flared up as a kid it never burst. That is a dangerous ordeal. I had an great uncle who passed away in the 20’s as a result of it. Take care Henry. Your Amigo from Corpus Christi.

  24. Hang in there I can only imagine what you feel like. My appendix explode when I was 15 I got infections and was in the hospital for a month. Just get som rest and take it easy.

  25. Sounds like it was as painful, if not worse, as the kidney stone I had a few months ago! Best.

  26. Wishing you wellness soon. BTW Noticed your XRP T-shirt. XRP is my biggest holding.

  27. Not to make a joke out of this.. but it looks like you dropped a bunch of weight and you look younger.
    Best wishes man.. Curt in Thailand

  28. Great to see you back home rest is the best way to recover just take your time

  29. Hello Reekay, wishing you all the best in your recovery, get some rest, and God Bless. Stay strong you’re a tough cookie.

  30. Ĥello sorry for your agony. At 86 i feel your pain. I have followed you on u tube for years. Kinfd regards David of oregon

  31. Hey Reekay, glad you are finally home. Hope you feel better and heal up quickly. No rush take your time and rest. Cheers.

  32. I’m here in the philippines now and I worry about my appendix. I’ve had inflammation and pain before. How did you know it ruptured?

  33. I am glad to hear that you are improving. You are fortunate to be above ground. Best wishes.

  34. Reekay, I am over here in Taytay and a retired RN. If I were you I’d take more than a week off I’d take 2 or 3. I would not worry about YouTube and I would worry about you.. Take a few weeks off and take care of you. I’ve never commented on hardly anybody’s videos and I’m not being bossy I’m just being a nurse.Prayers and wishes for your continued recovery and good health.

  35. Reekay I wish you godspeed in your recovery. Your channel was the blueprint that guided me in the origins of my Philippines travel.

  36. Your lucky Henry if it burst its so bad im told go take it easy you don’t sound to good Vee will spoil you

  37. It’s good to see you out of the hospital. I know you are aware but you are so lucky that the infection wasn’t worse. Take it easy, relax, and get well.

  38. Rest good, we all need your wisdom!! Body heals fastest while sleeping! Glad you are doing better.
