Author: Reekay V.

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. This guy sounds like a giant A-hole. It takes a lot of hubris to piss off an entire city. The dog is probably his only friend in the world. Kind of sad.

  2. The Sovereign state:- The Republic of NIGER (next door to Nigeria) an ex French Colony invited the French Ambassador for talks with the Foreign Minister; he refused and immediately declared “persona non grata” (a diplomatic representative unacceptable to an accrediting government) and given 48 hours. he once again refused to obey and his water, electricity and movements in and out of the Embassy stopped no food deliveries etc., and if it is an ordinary French family home the Police would go in and eject him. Although he personally no longer has immunity; but the building remain a foreign soil by Geneva Convention and no local police allowed without invitation.

  3. America’s new export: “Problem child” expats running the victim hustle. Kinda reminds me of the racist Somali guy terrorizing Japan

  4. Henry and guys I’ll give you a hint my wife is the one interviewed by old dog new tricks Paul McGill,90 day visa Remember at the end of the interview. My wife said well my husbands handsome anyway lol. That was in Dumaguete.

  5. It sll comes down to remembering you are a GUEST in the host country. You may not agree with culture, social attitudes or even the law. High levels of poverty and stray dogs would upset me but it’s not my place to interfere.

    This guy with his actions caused locals to lose face. If you are going to get known do it for the RIGHT REASONS. Like raising money to buy school supplies crash helmets for kids travelling on motorbikes and do it through an official organisation like a charity or barangay.
    Thanks for the heads up and information.

  6. I live in Panama, and considering some of the expats here, it’s no surprise that somebody like that came from here.
