    The change will do ya good.

    Still, most are looking forward to the collection of images that you might be sharing.

    Witness to where this thread is going already.

    Nonetheless, best to ya and the wifey.

    Cheers...

    I enjoyed the stubby San Miguel original. The one with the black label. Cheap but very drinkable for lager. Got annoyed with hostile kids begging in the end.
    If they speak half decent English, it’s usually with an American accent. You will feel at home right away Tops.

    Are you planning to live in the city or suburbs, of out near the countryside?

    With the mountains and beaches, looks like a good place to take up a few healthy, outdoor hobbies.

    ^ & ^^ Lol

    Welcome to PI, topper! I'm glad you got to Bacolod safe & sound. I saw that you landed in NAIA terminal 3 - Jollibee & the red Air Asia xmas tree are still there.

    It's a bit surprising, because it seems that the PI/ Bacolod is all new to you. It seems that in your 10+ years of marriage, you've never visited PI? I know that you had your legal woes which took several years, but prior to that, didn't you visit your wife's family? Japper has mentioned being to the PI several times to see the ex-wife's side. Just an observation.

    Bacolod is indeed hilly or mountainous. There's a mountain resort that I went to with friends, during my visit many years ago. Near an active volcano too - so good luck with that. There's still ash/dust here from the Taal volcano eruption. Re: decent internet, it depends on your provider & location. Near Manila, internet speeds are OK if you have a higher subscription. It will be tougher in the provinces. Ask your neighbors if they get frequent brownouts. If they do, then best get a generator.

    Topper, try to take advantage of the landscape and get 10k steps daily. Get one of those smart watches. Then you can be fitter and more fabulous, while still indulging in burgers and pizza.

    I recall saying that I'll be giving a one year grace period for the moans. Remember that you chose to come to PI - your wife didn't drag you kicking & screaming. You guys could have chosen another country. But instead you chose PI - so take it or leave it! Else I'll fly to Bacolod (with all my mom's dogs and DK's guns) to wallop your ass!

    Cheers! As they say, it's more fun in the Phils!

    That's what blows my mind about Topper. His story is fookin weird as fook.

    Lives in Thailand 16 years but could not manage to pay his way for his legal troubles ?. I mean. W.T.F. ?

    Has weight issues but continually posts up piks of food that is sure to bring on a fookin heart attack and just add more weight to his body. ????

    Fooks off to Flippaland and is now posting up pictures of fookin Pizza and expects to live happily ever after. ??

    Now Gunna TEFLE on line.

    What the fuk is up with that.

    ^ Well, I still have things to learn, unlike yourself. What I actually had for dinner last night was kinilaw (cerviche), and Shanghai lumpia, while the wife had a blue marlin steak. It was pretty damn good. The marlin was spectacular.

    Just so everyone knows, this is just a visit. We plan to head back to Bangkok in a couple of days to pack up the house and then move here in March.

    Bacolod seems to be breaking out of the small town thing. There's tons of stuff around where we're at. Malls abound.

    It's like living in Korat I'd imagine.

    One thing that has weirded me out is the armed security guards. I was sitting in McD's this am and four of the guys came in with shotguns. They declined to have their picture taken. They hung around about 10 minutes and left. Maybe they were picking up protection money or something.

    One issue is the internet. Getting good internet here is very difficult.

    I'll be taking more pictures this afternoon. We're in the house we're going to rent when we initially move here and we'll be exploring the 'hood.

    Off to explore!

    ^Get use to the security guards and their guns. But more to the point, ask yourself why anywhere there that has cash/valuables on premises has to have armed security. You'll soon realize that you need to take your personal safety way more seriously than you have been in Thailand.

    ps If it's any consolation, it's not uncommon for the guards to sell their bullets/shells and replace them with cheaper reloads that may or may not fire. Some of the guns and ammo I've seen there over the years, the safest place to be if one went off would be standing directly in front of the barrel. It's the Philippines, this sort of thing is perfectly normal as you'll soon begin to understand

    Why do I get the feeling your idea of exploring is searching Yellow Pages for American Fast Food
