What ever happened to Wombat?

Wombat (Phil) was before my time. He was banned March 20, 2013 for attacking Paul's character, and accusing him of illegal activities.

If he was an avid poster, I wouldn't be surprised if he's back using a different username.

Phil was a good bloke but he got himself into a major bind with a project he put everything into but failed. He fought to try and get it to work but things didn't go his way and it overwhelmed him unfortunately.

In the end he had a bit of a breakdown and returned to Oz. I hope his health has recovered now but all contact with him has gone so who knows?

I liked Phil. My family and I ate at his restaurant several times, and I organized two LinC Forums get-togethers there. Paul messed with Phil (and his business) first, and Phil got fed up and threw some mud back in Paul's direction. That got Phil banned.

Phil tried to run a restaurant in probably the worst location on Mactan. It had great food and was doomed from the start because it was never going to draw a customer base large enough to survive. Phil was into martial arts, and he intended the first floor of his place to be a dojo, but that never happened. He thought the restaurant would support the dojo until he could get it going.

Unfortunately, Phil had some serious health conditions, and the strain of those plus the business failure (and some legal issues) caused him to walk away from everything in the Philippines and return to Australia. We haven't heard from him since he left, so I don't know if he is OK or no longer with us. A lot of LinC Forums members just drift away like that. I doubt seriously that he is posting under a different name.

His large brown type would give him away in an instant. He was a likeable character.

Wombat (Phil) is one that I wish I had had a chance to meet.  I also really wanted to try the pizza at Wombat's Womb.  The closest I got was passing the restaurant and seeing it from the back of a truck as part of a dive group. He seemed like an animated and genial fellow from his posts here, but I do recall that they changed a bit before the banning.  

There are actually quite a few that I'd have liked to meet.  Now there's a new crop too.

We visited Wombats Womb a few times during construction - Phil was a good bloke

Unfortunately, we missed the grand opening by a few weeks when we relocated back to Oz (but donated a few slabs of San Mig Lite for the opening - hope those that attended enjoyed them!!)

I seem to remember a member posting a few pics of Phil after he returned to Australia - it looked as though his health had deteriorated so badly that he was totally unrecognisable

I thought I did see a follow up post not long after that he had passed on?

Maybe that was behind the scenes, I don't recall that. The main thing that got him on Paul's bad side was him constantly saying derogatory things about Filipinos. Warned numerous times. Never met him but he was an interesting character. Not many of those left.
