Expat Basic Training: Living in The Philippines
If living in the Philippines sounds like a possible choice for you, this is information you need. It doesn’t matter where you get it, you do need the information. Philippines Experience: Basic Expat Training is the first in what I hope will be a series of ebooks that I will release. I just hope it doesn’t take me as long to write the next one. It might, I may have put too much information in this one.
Can you find a good woman in the Philippines, you sure can. Can you find the worst nightmare of your life, yes you can. Can the Philippines be a tropical paradise? Yes, but its not heaven there are thorns in the roses.
In future books, I may include a lot of information from my websites but for this I didn’t. There are a about two pages of the 30 plus page book that were taken from the website. Most of it is all unpublished material. It is designed to cover the essentials of what you need to know about living in the Philippines. There is a lot of information intended to help you stay out of trouble. Do you know that is not uncommon for a mother to be sitting next to a daughter at an internet cafe telling her what to say to an interested foreigner? Its not uncommon, though I have not witnessed it, my Filipina girlfriend has. Why is it important? Their only purpose is to relieve you of money.
Some scam warnings one can find regarding the Philippines are scams themselves. Often overstated and far less common than websites would have you think. Once you are here and meet Filipina one on one, you’ll find most of them to be good honest people.
Can you find a good woman in the Philippines, you sure can. Can you find the worst nightmare of your life, yes you can. Can the Philippines be a tropical paradise? Yes, but its not heaven there are thorns in the roses. If you come to the Philippines and act like an American you could easily get yourself into trouble. Raising your voice to a Filipino is reason enough to be blacklisted and deported! These are the kinds of things you need to know. These are the kinds of things covered in this book but there are more than 127 30 pages of this kind of information.
I’ve been living in Cebu Philippines now for more than two years. I wish I had had this information, I would have moved to the Philippines sooner. To find out more information about this book, including a list of chapters, please visit Philippines Experience, Basic Expat Training.
