I filled the void when I was there and was pretty sure I was the only white guy that she'd had anything to do with. The thirst was real.

They hang around here.

Virtually all the Pinos are women as they are domestic servants. There are a handful of men who fix washing machines etc., but the Pino gender ratio must be about 100:1. On Sunday you'll find them lining the streets and parks around Causeway Bay.

If you're looking to wife one up, Hong Kong and to a lesser extent Singapore could be better bets due to the lack of options and their own men. Plus working in those places is a complete dead-end for them. There's also some in Korea.

There are also a lot of Indonesians. Don't be deceived by their conservative garb and note the non-presence of their men-folk. The Asian thirst has moved from Pino-land to hijabi Muslims to the South and also South Asians. If you talk to them online it's exactly as someone who said how it was in the past, thirsty female approaches. Though this is obviously all very marriage minded. But I think you could carve a niche out for yourself in a second tier University city in India.

If you're looking for Filipinas or Indonesians in HK, Wanchai (specifically on Sunday afternoons, and to a much lesser extent Saturday and Wednesday nights) is a much better bet than LKF. The latter tends to be more western expats and tourists along with rich Chinese (HK and Mainland).

Wrote a post about banging maids in Wanchai here, TLDR is the overall quality is abysmal but there are some definite diamonds in the rough, and as the quality of competition is also abysmal and the ratios are very favorable a white guy with his shit together can get a quality bang there. Probably not the place you want to be seen trolling if you live and work in HK either but if you're just passing through as I was, have at it.

I got my Magnum condoms, I got my wad of hundreds, I'm ready to plow!

No no no. You have to do it with love my friend! Turn it positive:

#strongboomerseed

#cargoshortsrule

#singlepinaymoms

#aholeisahole

#unlimitedvisa

#directdepositpension

#maidsday

#whitegodfactor

And for you young guys:

#tindergoals

#comeandknockonourdoor

#ivebeenwaitingforyou

#filtersemipros

+1 maids day. But I beat you to it Doctor. Check my posts on Page 5 of the HK thread. See if you can figure out who I am...

Wild and unsubstantiated information. I want you to eat your fucking shoe. LMFAO.

I recommend you hit wan chai early as possible. I’m gonna shoot you a figure of 4-5pm the latest. PM me for the specific bars.

Absurd you say? Nope! Pinay and Indo Ahmas start drinking early. Like AM hours. This is their one day off. They’re motivated! They need to get home 8-9pm. The good ones are all taken early.

Prepare yourself for the post partum body. Single moms the lot of them! Came to HK and SG to send money home.

Grandma raises her love child. I ask her age. I ask to see pictures of junior. The kid is often of age. I do math in my head. Always amazed how young the girl got preggo.

Most of the decent girls had a kid YOUNG. Some less than 15. Don’t worry they’re older (and wiser) now. Time for sport fucking strangers. Their bodies (mostly) bounce back. A bit of loose belly and stretched out nips is to be expected.

You just walk in the bar and target the one or two decent young girls. Waltz out in minutes. I never paid for a drink. I’m usually dressed from hiking all sweaty and with a backpack. Doesn’t matter one bit.

I had sex in the bar one time. This was pushing it. We got caught and they kicked her out. Didn’t say anything to me AHAHAHA.

Walk direct to the hourly hotel towards central. Short walk and easy to miss. Usually a guy dressed like a Sikh opens the door. Not always there.

I think it’s $30 for the room. I destroy those women for a hour then soap off the evidence. Balls drained and changed into street clothes. Now I’m truly outcome independent for LKF.

You’re doing these girls a real favor. They were damn grateful for the opportunity. Some of them still message me!

Don’t be fooled by the uglies on cardboard doing each other’s hair. These are the infuckable trolls. They just give up and hangout on cardboard like homeless vets. There are some good ones that go to the bar.

By good we are talking 6 and less. But young, skinny, fun bangable for a quick and easy nut.

NO EXCUSES
I want you PH guys to go out and get some hairy pinay pussy. Scalp it. Then bring it back on a stick. Nail that poosay on the wall (or ceiling). Be proud of your trophy poosay.

But know this. You are the prize. These pinays will never forget you. They build little shrines to you and light a candle after each fuck.

ALSO
In honor of the PH dying I’m planning an AIDS quilt made of scalped poosay. Each patch tells one bittersweet story of sexual conquest that ultimately ruined an entire generation. AHAHAHAHA

RE: The Philippines thread
Bingo you clever internet detective. Repped +1 despite using a gif.

No one reads blogs anymore. I can’t even get my family to click it. I just post pics and vids on social media. I consider myself lucky if a few dozen fat pinays click like without even watching. Like a normal person

Hey Popper if you’re going to troll you have to actually offer some actionable intel.

It’s funny and all. And I’m flattered you’re using my alliteration and onomatopoeia. You’re writing is coming along slowly but surely. Now just offer up some actual usable content and we’re good.

I just posted on the pull-up forum. I’m traveling and don’t go to a gym. But I do use playgrounds to show off in front of soccer moms.

Do you see the actionable info I just cleverly laced into a satirical post? Do some fucking pull-ups wherever you can.

Otherwise I’d appreciate you using your own monikers. By the year 2000 is projected banned members will be the new majority. And what will we do then?

My strong boomer seedbank of funny usernames is finite. Or is it?

Ps I repped you. Don’t worry it’s positive. Enjoy while it lasts. Those zeros look so lonely. Like a gaped pinay pussy. I just have to fill them up.

ALSO
Do you see the clever use of pumpkin pie the traditional desert for this weekends holiday? The timing was just perfect here.

It also vaguely references previous posts of mine talking about smashing jackolanterns American Pie style.

It just works on so many levels. This is what we call the art of the troll. I’m going to open up my own barbershop in Manila “Art of the Shave & Troll”. I’ll shave you and talk about trolling.

ONE MORE THING
Can we stop the useless quotations? It’s profoundly unnecessary. Like we’re all not scrolling the same posts.

OK maybe if you’re responding to something from a month ago. Then I can see quoting. Otherwise it’s truly mind boggling why grown men are doing this. Right up there with gif use.

Look at the retard using quotes below to ask about p4p in Manila. I mean number one do you even need to ask? It’s a super dumb question to begin with. Then add quotes too. Wow.

And we wonder what’s going on in PH. I had no trouble banging girls there. It’s not the PH. It’s you.

I know the SECRET to getting 9/10 and 10/10 pinays, delivered str8 to your luxury condo and bouncing on your cock with their brown pinay bubble butts in under 5 minutes.

Incels would sell their boomer parents off to rich Chinese businessmen to harvest their organs just to get access to this info.

"There are lots on YouTube but they tend to be 55+ years old and it's a whole different dynamic: a lot of it is P4P, sponsorship and gold digging.

I'll probably go to Angeles (but not for P4P) for 1 to 3 months and I will write a datasheet on it. If it turns out Philippines isn't my cup of tea then I can go back to Taiwan or Georgia."

Is Angeles the best spot for action or are there spots in Manila as well outside of p4p?

If you're being truthful, why else would you spend 1-3 months in Angeles? It will certainly not be your cup of tea.

OK Ok ok.

Can we get a gif of Will Smith in concussion? The scene where he demands:
“Tell the truth! TELL THE TRUTH!!”

I’d make an exception and use that one.

Oh and also the scene from Animal House of John Belushi’s hilarious call to arms. Just the part where he false marches out of the room and no one follows him “Ah ah ah a ah!”

I usually want to add that at the end of most of my posts. But I’m not a girl on tinder. Gifs. God.

Well I need a country that has 0% foreign income tax (and easy to stay for years and cheap) and that pretty much leaves me with Georgia, Taiwan and Philippines.

Georgia I think is the cheapest among the three but never in person did I see a Georgian woman in a relationship with a foreign male (and nobody on an expat group knew of an example either). Might be a good place if the sexual revolution ever comes to Georgia but I might be 40 or 50 years old by the time it happens.

Taiwan - I can bed the women but they never seem available before 8 PM (working / studying too much) and don't stick around either. I find Korea has far better looking women and far more wife material girls (every woman I smashed wanted to stick around and some of the clingy ones would send 20+ text messages a day!)

So I'm really stuck with trying the Philippines now for a break. Now how many women will I meet that will be down for fun versus how many are just hookers waiting until the 2nd date before asking for money / sponsorship... The only way I would ever sponsor a woman is if she lived with me otherwise she could just be a sugar baby being shared by 5 men (such things have happened I read about Pinay girls)

In Philippines I will try Angeles City and if that is disappointing then I could try Princesa and Cebu but I have a haunch changing cities probably won't change the results that much.

Maybe the expat community in PHP is slightly autistic (like the ones I met in Korea and Taiwan) but I found the vloggers and social media groups there are obsessed with Makati, Angeles and Cebu. Very little information about other destinations of PHP. There are probably some good secret gems in the PHP but guys aren't revealing the secret probably because they don't want competition of more foreign white guys in their neighborhood?

The Philippines is great but unless you're looking for hookers then Angeles has nothing else to offer. It's just a grimy, sleazy 3rd tier city in a 3rd world country. Of the other two places that you mentioned, Manila and Cebu, they both still have the hookers but aside from that, Manila is a great city with wonderful food, great nightlife and generally just full of life. Cebu isn't such a great city (although still better than Angeles) but the island of Cebu has a lot of beautiful nature in every direction. Unless you have friends there or a connection that you're not mentioning, I'd seriously recommend reconsidering Angles as your base in the Philippines. If you're in Manila, it's just a couple of hours bus ride away anyway to visit for a few days.

You obviously need to do more research. Paraguay, Nicaragua, and Guatemala immediately spring to mind -- and Panama and Costa Rica can be cheap if you stay out of the big cities and expensive areas. Just a random article on the topic:

RE: The Philippines thread
Well a big thing I am looking for is affordability + lifestyle + ease on Tinder. Angeles seems to have western style apartments for $400 - $800 a month of AirBnb. Yet if I try to use the same criteria for P. Princesa then almost nothing exists (it seems to be just huts on AirBnB ~ wtf?). The smaller beach towns seem to be worse. And Manila is crazy expensive: like an AirBnB near MoA (Mall of Asia in Makati) seems to cost at least $1,000.

It doesn't make sense to me why Philippines prices seem higher than Taiwan. I never paid more than $850 in Taipei. And I have a $500 studio in Tainan soon. But I guessing Philippines has been ruined by the 200,000+ foreign men in the country (and many living like rockstars on $2,000+/month pensions).

You didn't read the sub-header correctly. A lot of those countries you read are in a "low tax" category not "no tax". To me 7% - 20% tax is still way too much because this would be more than what I spend on food / housing (yes I make a fair amount of income online).

and that guy who runs the website actually lives in Georgia but he kind of cheated: he has been fluent in Russian for ages and his fiancee is a Russian woman (who if I recalled worked for him so that's a strong social circle game right there).

And never mind these countries you mentioned: murder is like saying hello. I don't want to be murdered or get PTSD from being violently robbed like a lot of expats undergo in Latin America.

I did read the sub-header. Once again, you need to do your research. Some of those "low tax" nations, such as Paraguay, have low taxes listed on the books -- but no one has ever paid them. It is simply not enforced. Hence, the need for you to actually do some research.

All of the countries that I mentioned, except for Guatemala, have murder rates similar to -- or less than -- the Philippines.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_co...icide_rate

As you seem intent on not improving yourself, I will leave you to it.

Most properties on Airbnb in almost every major city in SEA are overpriced now. Chock it up to greedy locals trying to price gouge foreigners. I've found apartments in the same buildings that were at least $300+ cheaper than their listings on Airbnb. Why people pay these prices on Airbnb is beyond me.

By most accounts I've read, AC has been known to be at least a tad dangerous. At least Korean sex tourists seem to get stabbed and robbed there a lot. I'd wager the majority of girls you meet on tinder and such will be p4p there. Why don't you go back to S. Korea when it gets warmer if you want a clingy gf?

While he may be exaggerating, he's not far off the mark, at least in many parts of Latin America. I'm Latin myself and safety was one of the factors in choosing to live in SEA versus Latin America. Would I consider living in Latin America, yes, but only in certain regions of a country and only in certain areas of cities, and then every day I would have to be mindful of things, like not carrying around a macbook visibly, for example. SEA has less violent crime. Some guys are just naive about the risks in Latin America or they're aware and just have a much higher tolerance in regards to the risk of bodily harm.

I've also seen folks do comparisons of murder rates between American cities and cities in Latin America, and you know they have no clue what they're talking about as soon as they bring that up, because Latin Americans are not going to, one, report crimes as often as Americans, because the impunity rate is so high in Latin America that reporting a crime is seen as pointless in many instances, and two, even if they do report it, the police institutions that keep track of these numbers can and do fudge the numbers downward, to make themselves look better. So actual crime in Latin America is much, much, much higher than the already high figures reported.

In Mexico, for example, the impunity rate is above 90%. According to some sources, it's higher than 99% (https://www.insightcrime.org/news/brief/...-99-study/).

Quote:Less than one percent of crimes are punished in Mexico.

Quote:However, the report adds, only around seven percent of crimes are actually reported, which when taken into account means that over 99 percent of crimes committed in Mexico go unpunished

So, statistically, you could kill 99 people without getting punished. Or more. Or far more.

RE: The Philippines thread
Lost like 4 pounds in the last 2 days.

There's a virus going around Manila, I see folks wearing masks lately, especially food preppers. I got it the day after I made a 4 mile walk through a main thoroughfare. I think the massive amount of petrol-air I inhaled weakened my immune system and left me susceptible.

Also, the food here, even when you buy it at nicer places, especially supermarkets, is hit/miss. I've had over-ripe mangoes, fermented grapes, too-bitter oranges, too-old walnuts, rotting jello, etc. Today I paid two dollars for a glass of orange juice at a restaurant and got some kind of powder drink instead. I paid real dollars, I wanted real orange juice, didn't think it was too much to ask, and $2 for a drink is U.S.A. prices. It was even tiny, too, to add insult to injury. I didn't drink it, who knows what it was, but I wasn't taking any chances.

So in regards to food safety, the best system I've come up with, and it really applies to anywhere in the world, is to only eat at places with a large amount of clientele relative to the food on display. Also, if the food is on display, that's good, you can make sure there's no flies/critters. But yeah, if there's a lot of movement, then you can be reasonably certain that the food is fresh, as you can only store so much food in a restaurant and there would be no point in storing it if it's going to rot and get your customers sick (versus buying it fresh/frequently and not sickening your customers). With supermarkets, you just never know how long something's been sitting there, especially if it has an outer layer, like oranges and grapes (the ones I picked out looked fine on the outside and were firm).

Also, went to a yoga class this week. I feel like I discovered like 5 new positions I want to fuck a girl in, but it was weird because they kept forcing me into those positions.

I had wanted to see if yoga here wasn't as girl-oriented as yoga back in the U.S. When I went in the U.S., the instructor made us do some really feminine poses and put our hands in like a scratching position and then say something like "I am a queen" or something like that. I did not.

But I never forgot how gyno-centric it was so I wanted to see if maybe in the Phils it was different, and it was, there was no "hear me roar" thing here, but they did put me in positions no man who aspires to a political career would ever want to be photographed or videotaped in, for fear of blackmail.

Would not yoga again.

This would never happen in Bantayan. Best pineapple juice in the world.

Hope it's not too bad and you have a quick recovery. Maybe get that shop girl to nurse you! Tell her you need some TLC. She'll be up for it..

RE: The Philippines thread
Thought you'd been around for a while in the Philippines, Spaniard88? And yet you're walking 4 miles through the city like a pleb. Do you think wealthy Filipinos act like that? They have contempt for the cargo pants wearing , red skinned sexpats walking around the city like that. And complaining about orange juice substitute? You should have learned what you're gonna get and where in terms of food quality. Oranges aren't even grown in this country. It's an import with all that means regarding expense and availability. Learn and adapt.

They must sell that American orange juice in one of the supermarkets in malls, ones for foreigners.

There is only one area in the Philippines that grows oranges -- and only a single orange plantation. That is interesting. I would have thought that the Philippines was similar to Florida in the ability to grow oranges. It must not get cold enough during the winter season in most of the Philippines.

It sounds like a real business opportunity if you could figure out how and where to do it on a large scale (and how to own agricultural land in the Philippines -- perhaps a long-term tree lease). Too bad that the Philippine government squelches any type of foreign business and land ownership schemes.

I love to walk -- and I do it wherever I go. I could care less what the locals think. I also find many interesting places by walking that I would otherwise never discover. Obviously, I would think twice about walking in an area high in crime or air pollution -- or when it is too uncomfortable to do so. As always, common sense prevails. Now dressing like a full-blown retard is another thing altogether. I go out of my way to dress well when I travel.

Interestingly, I was eating in a local's cafe in Panama City once. An older Panamanian gentlemen, probably in his 80's, sat down next to me. He began speaking in English and told me that while I was obviously trying to blend in (as an upper class local), he could still tell that I was an American (without even hearing me talk). WTF. I assume that I probably looked too European in ancestry. Then again, he was pitching a tour of the City, so he probably developed a sixth sense about such things.
