Occidental men of all ages, if you are looking for a beautiful girlfriend, come to the Philippines!

Candidates for this year's Miss Philippines- Earth beauty pageant. Filipinas are the most awarded Beauty Queens of the world. Candidates for this year’s Miss Philippines- Earth beauty pageant. The Philippines already won all International beauty pageants: Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International, and Miss Earth.

Ask any Caucasian male how his ego feels in the Philippines, the answer is unanimous :” like a God. I would never dream of attracting so many beautiful women back home. And so easily“. The rudest ones would add “country of cheap booze and cheap stunning women!”.

Does it mean that those Filipinas who work in bars and sadly well known clubs have better tastes than us Occidental women? “all they want is to get pregnant, they are a bunch of gold diggers, real bitches” is how most expat women (and rich Filipinas) will tell you. While their husbands will probably nod their head and smile at…

The Filipino Wanderer

Whether you want to admit it to yourself or not, there are times when, after visiting one place, over and over again, you just become a bit bored, and your interest in visiting it once again wanes.

Cebu is a little bit like that for me. After visiting it for more then 20 times already for events, and business meetings over the past 13 years, it has become a very boring place for me and begged off some opportunities to come visit it again.

But all that changed when I had the chance to visit the city and stay at the luxurious Movenpick Hotel in Mactan Island.

I have heard only wonderful things about the hotel and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to experience it for myself.

Needless to say, I had high expectations but I was also realistic.

Thank God that Movenpick exceeded all my expectations and…

Apo Island – Diving with Turtles

indahs: dive, travel & photography

Apo Island is a small island located in Negros Oriental province of the Philippines. It is only three km around with hills in the middle of the island. I have read numerous diving reviews mentioning the island offers a world-class diving, an island that should not be missed for scuba diving holiday in the Philippines.

There were four accommodations in the island but we decided to visit the island on daily basis from Dumaguete (Dauin). The boat trip was organized by our dive resort in Dumaguete with the itinerary of three times scuba diving with lunch and snacks. It took 45 minutes to reach Apo Island by a local outrigger boat (with motor engines, not the canoe one). The boat was locally called as “bangka”. It was a spacious boat with roof, toilet and small kitchen. The only downside was the boat has open sides. Imagine what would happened to…

My kids are Jewish by their Mum and Protestant by their Dad. Mr Attila was born in a Buddhist country and his sister in a totally secular one. We worked in Muslim and Hindu places and we are currently living on a Catholic island. How could we possibly educate our children in a single religion? if there is one thing I learnt from all those years working in war affected countries, is that education is paramount to prevent violence. Teach your children how to respect each other and the people around them for who they are and to honour all religions – as each is a pathway to the One God.

schoolbookThe Philippines are a Catholic country, even though not formally anymore. But you’ll always be asked “are you a Catholic?”. My natural answer would be “why do you care? does it make any difference to you whether…

The Filipino Wanderer

I am definitely a man who’s after value for money.

So when my mom asked me whether I wanted to try having a buffet dinner at Market Cafe for about $50 per person, it was an understatement to say that I was skeptical about it. In fact, I wasn’t that thrilled. I wasn’t planning on spending $100 when I can dine at a great restaurant for a fraction of the cost.

But since we were in the area, (my mom tried her hands at the slots), we proceeded to have dinner at Market Cafe, located at the third floor of the Hyatt Hotel and Casino in Malate, Manila.

Now, being the food lover that I am, I am very much familiar with buffet dinners. I’ve tried having dinner at Spiral in Sofitel; Circles in Makati Shang; Heat in Edsa Shang; Escolta in Manila Pen; Cafe Ilang-Ilang in Manila Hotel and…

It’s no secret that Aguirre Ave. in BF Homes Parañaque has a lot of restaurant gems. One lazy day at the Alabang office, I pestered some colleagues that we have dinner (our day now typically starts in the afternoon to just near midnight) and that we try a place in Aguirre.

One of us, having just found out about the wonder of zomato.com, suggested she’ll check the listings and recommendations of some of the places. After some minutes we landed on a listing for Artists Haven Cafe. I was immediately drawn to the pictures some users had posted. It also didn’t hurt that the food prices were not on the expensive side.

Cost of Living: Manila

Hey Teacher Ella

We started with Thailand, now we are going to the Philippines to sustain this cost of living articles. Manila, the country’s capital, isn’t very popular to backpackers nor expats. I think this is because of the geographical location: It’s a ballache to go to the Philppines. You have to fly and fights are costly.

However, Manila is very different to the rest of Southeast Asia because of this coincidence. It’s the only catholic country and it is far more “Anglocized” than the rest of its neighbors, meaning, you can’t make money as an English teacher here. Maybe that’s also the reason why we don’t have a lot of backpackers.

It’s also a bit costly. When the boyfriend and I were living there, we did not save anything even if we had the Thailand lifestyle (most often that not anyway) where we eat out mor because we did not have a…
