DenDen’s 18 Candles Celebration

DenDen’s 18 Candles Celebration

FEATURED
While in a previous post, I wrote about “DenDen’s 18 Candles Celebration Preparation,” this article deals with the actual celebration. “18 Candles” is the traditional Filipino coming-of-age observance for a young woman’s 18th birthday. DenDen is our niece in Guimaras, the island province we call home. (more…)
Expat Healthcare in the Philippines: Are YOU Prepared?

Expat Healthcare in the Philippines: Are YOU Prepared?

FEATURED
A serious topic for today's post: "Expat Healthcare in the Philippines: Are YOU Prepared?" Do you think that if you move to the Philippines and become ill that the Philippine government will help you out? You're not in Kansas anymore, Pilgrim. YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR ANY CONTINGENCY BEFORE MOVING TO THE PHILIPPINES. There's no safety net for foreigners in "paradise". (more…)

The Expat Celebrity: “He Must Be an American Movie Star!”

The Expat Celebrity: “He Must Be an American Movie Star!”

FEATURED
Mac Davis crooned that "it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way." Anyone that has ever met me can attest to the fact that I'm far from perfect. But in the Philippines, one can become an expat celebrity the minute they pass their plastic-wrapped luggage through the Manila airport and officially enter the PH. When's the last time someone exclaimed to you: "He must be an American movie star!"? (more…)
The Island Hoppers of Guimaras

The Island Hoppers of Guimaras

FEATURED
The Philippines is an archipelago comprised of 7,107 islands. Traveling by banca boat (see following photo) is an unrivaled means of checking out some of the islets and enclaves which is something my asawa and her relatives, the island hoppers of Guimaras, did one recent Sunday.  (more…)

Pretty Pinays Roam Raymen Resort in Guimaras

FEATURED
Pretty pinays roam Raymen Resort in Guimaras, the island province we call home. What more could a crusty old expat who has lived in the Philippines almost six years desire? A beautiful asawa, a sunny day on the beach, a cold bottle of San Miguel Pale Pilsen and not a care in the world. Sure, I got a sunburn as I walked along the white sandy shores but it was my desire, as CEO of Philippines Plus, to get as many photos of lovely ladies as possible. It's a sacrifice I make for my faithful readers. (more…)
I Join the Guimaras SWAT Team at Manggahan

I Join the Guimaras SWAT Team at Manggahan

FEATURED
Decades ago I was in the United States Air Force military police. Maybe that's why I always make it a point to be sociable to peace officers no matter where I'm at but especially in the Philippines. I've met quite a few friendly police men and security guards in nearby Iloilo on Panay Island and on our own island province. So I guess it shouldn't come as a complete shock to my readers when I post a title such as the one above: "I Join the Guimaras SWAT Team at Manggahan." (more…)

I’m Adored as a Rock Star by Pretty Pinays at Manggahan 2015

FEATURED
Regular readers of Philippines Plus know that I excel at doing as little as possible. I've perfected my slothfulness to a fine art after almost six years of living in the Philippines.  But retirement in this archipelago comes with a price: notoriety. Thus, many of my stalwart subscribers, especially those that have visited or who reside in the PH, will not be surprised by the title of this post: "I'm Adored as a Rock Star by Pretty Pinays at Manggahan 2015."  (more…)
I Award the Barangay Queen Her Trophy at Local Barangay Fiesta

I Award the Barangay Queen Her Trophy at Local Barangay Fiesta

FEATURED
Celebrity status in the Philippines is a phenomenon many foreigners will encounter in the archipelago. Some expats, like Tom Ramberg over in Gen San, is often the recipient of wolf whistles from appreciative Filipinas whenever he steps out in public.  I've been chased and screamed at by pretty pinays as I sat in the rear of a jeepney or tricycle in Guimaras, my island province home. Every time this event occurs I check my barn door to make sure it's closed. It always is so I can only assume that the young ladies were either stoned on shabu or flirtatious Filipinas from the local KTV bars. (more…)
