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. I SWEAR Henry, foreigners that travel and seem like they know everything are REALLY DUMB AND STUPID with no common sense in their pea brains! Hate to say it that way but you guys that think like this better just stay where you are! Enjoyed your video my friend!

  3. Very true. Most Filipinas have a lot less experience with making travel arrangements, hotel reservations…even dinner reservations at a restaurant. Things that most western women are quite familiar with. I know from experience…my fiancee didn’t know how to do any of these things and I had to learn to either talk her through the process or just do it myself.

  4. I went thru very similar situation when I went back to get married. I trusted her with the money, not an issue, but…I told her to rent us a place, you know, like air bnb, her and her friend set out on a mission. When I got there, after a very long plane ride, and long taxi ride I get there ready to collapse. Open the door to this place 3 flights up, all my luggage and hers too. The place is empty, not empty, empty. But no kitchen wares, no pillows, no towels, no sheets, no internet, arghhh. That’s when it hit me, hahaha, these chicks don’t know difference, this is all very new to them and it was a learning experience for both of us.

  5. Are there seriously expats still doing this – have they not even bothered to view your and other expats videos who are in PI. Are they so desperate that the only thing they can do is to buy a Filipina by giving her lots of gifts and money and then to send incriminating sms’s to an under 18 yr old – wow.

  6. I have zero synpathy for anyone always giving $ to a girl he barely knows & ending up feeling jilted. Ditto to those feeling a need to use dating sites & forking out pesos to someone they never spent a minute alone with…

  7. Hey Reekay, what’s the current status for unvacced travel to the Philippines? have you heard of any changes in the last month or two????

  8. If you hang out with an idiot you will eventually be dragged into his mess…..tell him have a nice day and don’t look back, Lol…..also, ” a fool and his money are soon parted ” …..seems pretty accurate, Lol ….Good one Reekay !

  9. Love these stories. The one thing I learned from you: if you are going to give the girls money, keep it low investment. It’s OK to spend money on load, grab fare, food, movies, etc. Not $6,000. Idiot!

  10. I am still looking to get together face to face i have just completed my three years left as required my wife and i went to Bangkok Thailand n returned to the Philippines without issues with insurance and airports just slow bit was worth it fo our safety upon entry i got a visa for a year things went perfect interested in pick your brain and getting advice i live in TALISAY CITY BUT FREE TO TRAVEL
