Tell them you are looking for a wife to take back to the west and didn't want to get locked into a lease.

In terms of medications and sick preventions this is what I’ve got so far:

- gastro tablets
- pro-biotics
- condoms (60 pack)
- antihistamines
- Panadol (aspirin)

Can you think of anything else I should include?

I'm drinking lots of water and eating mostly meats, fruits, and veggies, plus cutting junk food, basically to make my body run at optimum efficiency.

RE: The Philippines thread
Pulling back to a hotel is no different then a condo in terms of strategy, I've actually found it an easier process for a few reasons. I generally stay at 3 star hotels that get excellent reviews. At all of the hotels I've stayed at, the security/reception doesn't give a shit what you're doing or who your bringing into the room, they've never questioned me. I also love that the elevator often has no wait because there's less people staying there and is a much shorter ride because there's less floors. Hotels are much more discreet overall in my experience. Outside of Manila, hotels also provide better logistics on average or will be your only option (shit Airbnb options). If a girl questions you, just tell her you're checking out condos, or if you're just traveling through be honest and tell her that. I want to also say that I hate Light Residencies in Manila and Horizon 101 in Cebu because they provide an experience that is the opposite of what I just described.

As far as how long to tell pinays you've been in the country, when I tell them over a month they start probing hard with "why you have no girlfriend" and "you must be a Playboy" because they expect you to pick a girlfriend after one week. I usually then tell them I'm picky, haven't found the right one, don't like to rush things, been too busy with work, which is usually enough for them to move on from the subject. For ease it's probably best to lie and tell them less then a week.

RE: The Philippines thread
The FinnSnow guy with a Youtube channel thinks he owns the damn Philippines. Hate that there's more of this fake-small-talk-pretend-to-like-you energy ending up in a country already crippled by it. Such beautiful scenery, such ugly people. On that note. A filipina family member is overweight for the first time in her life, now that her kids are 23+ and the husband filed for divorce. He of course still pays for everything, while she gets a maid/cleaning job /for the novelty and pleasure of it. She's depressed at the moment, saying how being 'fat' is such a lifestyle, how much she hates it, how difficult it is. Same woman who'd only ever reference overweight people as 'oh, the fat guy?' 10 or so years ago. Such a weird culture. And the most beautiful of the girls, easily the 10/10's of the country, hold as much mental capacity as a fucking dog. I hate that I love the nature so much here.

RE: The Philippines thread
I know it’s been talked about a lot here but what would be be best way to obtain Andros or the like do you need to see a doctor first to get a prescription or are there any secret mercury drug stores that just give it out?

Or has anyone tried horny goat weed

RE: The Philippines thread
I'm assuming Andros is a prescription boner pill?

Anyway, Mercury Drug and Watsons are quite unlikely to give out drugs without a prescription but you'll have much more luck at generic pharmacies like The Generic Pharmacy, Generika and basically any place that you see on a dodgy sidestreet as opposed to in a mall or whatever. If you write down the name of the drug on a little piece of paper and hand it to them instead of just asking, that seems to do the trick too.

Another retard is the "Hungry Syrian" guy in Baguio on YouTube. The personality he gives off in the video is 100% fake (nobody in Syria has a personality like that or else they would be tied to a chair and then pushed off a 4 story building).

To me it seems like a lot of these younger YouTubers in Philippines are copying a fake Filipino entertainer personality but to me it comes across as border line homosexual or effeminate. It makes their videos unwatchable.

https://www.youtube.com/user/MarkBlackard/videos

In some ways this guy's personality is also a little fake too (way too outgoing even for American from the South) but he's the only person I can actually watch and he gives out some useful info sometimes. But I felt if I met Marcos in person and spent a hour with him he would emotionally drain me with his "dialect" and mannerisms. I still haven't come across a younger vlogger based out of the Philippines who wasn't partially autistic or putting on an effeminate personality. For some reason you don't have this problem (as much) with vloggers based out of Thailand or other Asian countries.

Sinus infections do not come from pollution but other people's germs. If you get sick within a week of flying, chances are you picked up in the airplane. Very infectious environment with many people touching the same stuff and dry hair which dries out mucous membranes. I used to get sick every long flight and thought it was the aircon/pollution, but then I read about airplane health and I stopped touching shit. Bring some alchohol wipes and don't touch anything and you'll be better off.

The first thing that I do when I sit in my airline seat is yank out an alcohol wipe and wipe everything down, especially the food tray, the arm rests, and the belt buckles. Read the studies on the bacteria growth on these items.

Reminds me of the last time I was in manila and went to McDonald’s.

“No lettuce sir”

Ok. Maybe they ran out. No big deal. Go back a few days later and still no lettuce for my Big Mac.

So I start thinking maybe the manager just didn’t want to pay for lettuce that week.

The country is such a dysfunctional zoo. I love it.

At least on the bright side, at least within western news, is you hear about more people getting sick from contaminated vegetables than contaminated meat.

If I go into Taiwanese supermarkets and see shit like them putting salads below raw meat in the fridge aisle. And supposedly Taiwanese are educated people. God knows what Filipinos as doing with their food.

RE: The Philippines thread
I found day game had a low ROI last year, but I'll keep doing day game but also add online game for fast pulls, while I'm improving my day game skills.

Earlier this morning, after I get the girl on face book from online, we have chatted some in text, and I get her to agree to chatting on video next time - she's hot. Then the next day, we are chatting again a little bit, and today, I messaged her and asked if she will send me some photos wearing a skirt and high heels. Then, just keep chatting like normal...

Anyone like or dislike this?

Is anyone bothered at all with Air NB public reviews?

This makes it possible to be tracked to some extent where you're staying at online. Has anyone just delete their account or have a new one?

Definitely a grand. Good luck finding a decent hotel/Airbnb with good logistics for under 30 Usd a day. Does he drink? If so then expect 120-150 pesos at the bars. Weren’t not talking even talking about cab fare, going to the beaches, and how he’s going to eat.

If you go with a grand then you better stick to one girl.

It's theoretically possible in a shit society like Philipphines or Colombia. A host could track my previous reviews and easily conclude I've been traveling nonstop for awhile and consequently would have more money than a Cheap Charlie. Good target for hostage taking or Devil Breathing me to the nearest ATM (or the host robbing me while I go out to a restaurant or something).

So I agree there's definitely some privacy concerns on AirBnB but I haven't gone so far as deleting my profile to obfuscate past reviews.

Just don't want my girlfriend going on there and seeing all the places i've stayed at lol

I asked the host earlier to take the review down (before it was posted online) and she complied.

RE: The Philippines thread
On my way to the airport now. Feeling more nervous than any other time for some reason but I’m sure it’ll subside.

The only problem I have at the moment is which girl to meet up with, it’s overwhelming. I feel like you need to make a decision and it’s either just spend time with a couple of girls or bang your heart out because id say 95% of the girls want to hangout all the time. I’m going to just aim for the top tier in the beginning and go from there. Not sure if I should document my progress in the other thread I created or here..

I’m sure this has been discussed before, but it fascinated me that every single white dude I see always has a below average girl like 4-6 with him. I wonder why that is, I’m in the line now and I see a lot. Very strange and some of these white guys aren’t bad looking either

Ease was always the name of the the game in the Phils and with 6s and 7s. High quality was for those who got to know the game well there and who lived and had their shit together.
Now quality has too much of a price and banging a lot of 5s is not worth it. Wont go back there anymore.

This may be my last trip I’ll have to see how it goes. But I’ve got girls in the 7-8 range down and after having been a number of times my standards are high compared to my previous trips. Day game could be gold for the 7-8s I’m looking forward to reporting how that goes.
