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. Great interview. Wonderful share Mr. Reekay , Thank you. Michael Thompson you are tough and such adventurous man to lived in Payatas neighborhood in Quezon City. About your book I sure going to purchase it . I lost my husband from cancer 8 years ago . Until now it Hard to believe he was gone .

  3. How danderous is it to ride a regular bike? Within Dumaguete, and from Dumaguete to Valencia?

  4. A lovely guy who put his story down and continues on the journey to process his grief. Very interesting.

  5. I guess he was living in the city where they had to walk in the skinita to get in and out to go to town.

    He could have live in the province and have a car like many expats does.

  6. Michael, I have been here 9 years and avoid Manila like the plague unless I have to go there. If you try the suburbs within about a 40-minute drive from Manila you will find everything much better and traffic less of an issue. I am in Santa Rosa City, Laguna and it is a good area with lots of options and central to all the places you need to get to.
