Then better we calling the refugees expat, "expat camp" is better than refugee camp!

The refugees wouldn't like that. Expats don't get any benefits from the country where they are living.

i consider that to be a regular life !!

I avoid malls and definitely avoid expats who have no idea what time of the day it is.  

Why should I go to those bars ? Too see ugly fat guys drinking beer al day and boast with their young girlfriends ? I prefer a regular life, I choose my friends very wisely because I am sick of peop

Filipinos do not call people from foreign lands who live here  expats.

I don't think this is whining the official definition of an expat!

They get same benefits as all other (foreign) residents, which in the Philippines is none.

The demographic is definitely changing - there are a lot more younger expats that like to spend their free time doing other things

If the attitudes of some of our own members is anything to go by (you know, the 'i didnt come here to hang out with other expats/i dont acknowledge other expats in passing' type crowd), then they are a living their lives doing whatever they do too

from wikipedia

Quote

An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than their native country.[1] In common usage, the term often refers to professionals, skilled workers, or artists taking positions outside their home country, either independently or sent abroad by their employers, who can be companies, universities, governments, or non-governmental organisations.[2] Effectively migrant workers, they usually earn more than they would at home, and more than local employees. However, the term 'expatriate' is also used for retirees and others who have chosen to live outside their native country. Historically, it has also referred to exiles.

but most I focus in around Parkmall.

If you just want to have a drink and a smoke I definitely can recommend Time Square next to Park Mall. There are plenty of nice bars you can sit outside and smoking is no problem. Most actions starts in the evening after 7pm. Good bars and live music. If you are into sexy girls then got to the Tequilla bar (or on the side of the Tequilla bar, same side as Liv super club). A couple of bars there if you want that.  I think the most action will move down there in the near mid-term as development  of Mandani Bay is starting developing as well.

In previous years the Sand Trap/Banilad Sports Club used to be a great hangout place for "Foreigners" here in Cebu but the number there has also dropped  dramatically, probably due to the 40%+ increase in beer prices since the establishment came under new management out last year.

Most seem to have decamped to the Bier Haus in Banilad Town Center.

Definitely Eurohub in Talamban if you are in the north of the city.  Jam Central on AS Fortuna and Das Bierfass (The Beer Barrel) in Banilad TC can be good.

Thanks for the correct name, I mostly hear it referred to it as "The Kraut Haus"

TGIF now has a bigger smoking area inside and can be good some nights, hard to pick which nights.

All stars,    at Mango, up near LDS church is good, plenty of sport on several big TV's, Aussie owner, good food, pool comp, smoking inside... ok for smokers but not so good for us non smokers, also smoke place outside.

Jokers Arms, near El Geko , great place to catch up and play pool.

Howling dog, .... turn  right after the Irish bar at Mango,  bookshop on corner and 100 mtrs. on left, good  outside crowd of expats, some regulars,lots of newbies.

Eurohub at Cabancaland is good, outside and inside tables, smoking outside. Mat bowling Sunday afternoon is a pleasant change and good chance to catch up with old friends.

Several other places for live music.

I think what has changed is the people.... some move temporarily, some permanently , seems to be very few organizing get together"s ...

my two bobs worth...

Pretty much forced to go to Cebu today on business..
Malls just the same,traffic unbearable.. Got stuck in taxi from SM to pier one and missed the damned 4.20 boat home..Grrr..

I go out here once or twice a week for 4/5/ or 10 ice cold SMB`s..Great company and smokers are always welcome pretty much anywhere on the island.
Definitely more fun in Dauis and Panglao! Home sweet home.

Plenty of smoking bars in Cebu, most not frequented by foreigners.

When a boat is missed best to walk to the nearest sound of karaoke. At 4pm it's guaranteed to find a few fellow patrons and maybe a lady of the afternoon.

Tagbilaran port has trike drivers, it's more fun in Cebu!
