Introduction-Permanent Resident
« on: January 09, 2018, 12:59:16 PM »
Greetings. I am a German from the USA.

I am a 13a Permanent Resident in the Philippines, obviously, married to a Pinay.

We have 7 kids.

After 10 years of living and working in the Philippines, I am still one of the youngest Europeans I ever encounter here! Except maybe Travis Krap (his own gag).

I speak Filipino fairly well, and some Tagalog and Hiligaynon.

I have not Naturalized yet, but began the process (Letter of Intent).

I think I offer a unique perspective, and hope I can share some things.

We just came back to the US not too long ago, but are returning to the RP.

I really want some land and a house. Tired of dishing out p2,000 ever month to someone else!

Maraming salamat po kababayan!

I forgot to mention that all 18 of us (extended family) live here on US$300 a month.

That is likely well under budget for many?

Wow!  18 on 300 bucks a month?  If that is doable, just a few on 300 bucks a month should be easy.  I am interested in checking in to that further.  You have any pics of surroundings and/or way of life?  Or elaborate on it?  By the way, what is it you are tired of dishing out p2,000 a month to someone else on?
Whatever floats your boat.

I am going to guess he is paying p2,000 a month rent.

I second the wow on living so inexpensively, for $300 a month one would have to basically live like a local, with some western extras tossed in, such as we have sky cable basic for p299 a month.
