69 years young last November.  Fortunately enjoying good health and still working.  Tried retiring every year for the past 6 years but company always put pressure on me to stay, however, I am determined to make the break this year.  Happily married to a 31 year old Filipina, who shares my passions of travelling, sailing and motorcycling.  I have built our house in Davao, so everything in place for the move over there full time.
Looking forward to exploring more of the country and further afield to Vietnam, once place in Asia I have never visited.

The important thing is that you don't mind working and enjoy doing your job.
I didn't like or enjoyed doing my job, so I took an early retirement at age 49 and immediately moved to the Philippines. 19 yrs later we're still here and enjoying our retirement lifestyle.

53,  still planning to move.   Filipina wife is onboard with the idea now.  Probably couple years as we work to close out our local (usa) business.   Visiting at least once a year.

Yes I love my job, so in many ways it makes the breaking to retire more difficult.  This year I am determined to stop working, just need to finish a few more projects first.........

55.  56 June this year, lucky to have retired early due to a hurt on duty injury.  Moved here just before my 50th birthday with my pinoy partner after having lived together in Sydney for 5 yrs or so.
I have never seen the world brighter and less prosperous.

Will be 69 this Sep. Yes, we enjoy the retirement lifestyle here. I've been retired now for 19 years. Retired early at age 49. I didn't like or enjoyed my job, but put in 30 years of sevice to retire 6 years early.

You have me beat by one month.   Wow Santa Rosa huh, I never realized how many people are in the Cavite Laguna area.   We really should all get together sometime for a few beers.   Just how many are in the Tagaytay, Santa Rosa, Dasma, Gen Trias area?
