The value of a peso??

I knew somewhat about tourist visit and being able to stay up to 2 years with that. The balikbayon stamp is if your married already? If you apply for resident stamp you need be married to someone to get that? How does that affect citizenship in USA?  (Feb 26, 2009 | post #15)

Why do American men move to the Philippines?

I was amazed that when I see that it's 8O degrees people need blankets at night there.. here when it's 45 degrees I'm in shorts. Maybe because it gets to sometimes -100 below zero wind chills here so I laugh when people there say to me its the cold season at 80 degrees.  (Feb 25, 2009 | post #503)

The value of a peso??

She told to me today she learn her lesson about gifting to others lots. I was impressed. I told her sometimes it best to care your own needs and also the ones that you love cos when you have need maybe they not return same effort to you. I don't have any savings extra to buy house but I told her maybe we live in Bacolod and rent small house and invest in Sugar Cane crops. She tell to me that her brother has experience cos he wish to invest too. I have heard the return is worth the contract to the farmers there but with anything there is always risks. Maybe after 5 years investment we can afford house to buy or build if live meager. The only thing that is hard about decision to live there is being away from my children that live with their mother. Maybe I can continue with visits or video calls using Skype at If I marry her in Phil how can I stay longer then tourist visa allow without losing USA citizenship?  (Feb 25, 2009 | post #11)

Why do American men move to the Philippines?

I really hate waiting.. so that's why I was thinking of moving there with my pension. Yes it would be nice to live in the US still so I can still see my family and children since 3 of them are still under the age of 18. Can someone petition them to arrive to US even if I'm living there? How can I have happiness on a shoe string budget with no savings? As far as my pension goes, I can have Social Security wire it to the Phil I have already checked into that.. but sometimes with SSDI they do determinations to make sure I meet eligibility, I'm wonder if they would accept a Phil doctor if that ever should arise.  (Feb 25, 2009 | post #494)

Why do American men move to the Philippines?

I need a vacation even i'm on Social Security Disability.. If I didnt have a broken ankle right now I would relish a spring in my step eh. But I have to get my requirements like passport and plane ticket and both are Mahal to me right now. But if I was there to see for myself, maybe it would put my mind at ease. ingat  (Feb 25, 2009 | post #493)

The value of a peso??

Lets say my budget is 50,000 peso per month.. would it be a better life there in either Manila or Negros on that amount? Her family is poor but she only asks effort to effort them 500 to 1000 peso if I can afford that. If for example I rented in Negros in city Bacolod would I be able to live comfortably? Maybe even invest in Sugar Cane crops for the long term and be able to live better there then in USA? How can you tell girls relatives that your not Santa Clause or Kuripot without offending them?  (Feb 25, 2009 | post #8)
