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.

  2. So did you ever make contact again with the Filipina who left you stranded on that 1st Christmas Eve in the Philippines?

  3. “Reekay, how was your first Christmas in the Philippines?”

    “Small town. Pancit. Rambo.”

  4. It’s warm weather so Christmas is celebrated outside also vs in US it’s cold and people celebrate indoors in general

  5. This is my 4th Christmas here in the PH. I would have spent my last one in the US alone, but Ne stayed online with me all day and night. My first one here we were still in Bohol and spent it with her family. I am not one to hang out with a bunch of guys like many ex-pats do. Today and tomorrow Ne’s girls will come by and eat. and we will spend it with them & the grandkids. Merry Christmas.

  6. When I was in Manila during Christmas that they had a tradition to go to 12 Catholic Churches and out side the church you read what 2 catholic priest wrote then you go to the other 11 church and do the same thing. Few of the churches there seems thousands of people there.I had to stay close to my wife family or I would been lost.

  7. This is actually my first Christmas here as well. I’m bringing a bit of the U.S. here to the Philippines.
