Personal insights and experiences from an American expat living in the Philippines since 2009
Hi, my name is Dave “The Kano” DeWall. I moved to the Philippines in 2009 along with my beautiful Filipina spouse, “The Sainted Patient Wife.” My loving better half has put up with me for over 20 years. I served in the United States Air Force as a Security Specialist in the Strategic Armed Command. While employed at AT&T in Central Illinois I was a Fire Warden and a member of the Safety Committee. I take safety issues very seriously.
With all the news of drug-related killings, terrorism, and kidnappings in the Philippines, it’s best to be prepared before planning your own trip to the Philippines. That’s why I updated this E-book, “Expat Safety & Security: Philippines.” This guide gives you the inside story on what’s really happening in the Philippines from an American expat’s viewpoint.
They call me the “straight-shooter.” I give you the good, the bad, and the ugly side of living in the Philippines. While it can be a “paradise” at times, it can also be a gateway to your own personal hell.
