Do you regret moving to the philippines and why?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes boring is good. Every day in the Philippines I'd think "Nothing is easy and everyday is like camping".

 

Like driving a new car or a fixer upper, sometimes you get tired of either.

 

For the lovers, the Phil's is like a vintage roadster.

I remember you did you tend to say that a lot.

It's all true but what a boring life.

 

People say that but I don't agree at all. I find myself bored more often in the PH than I do here. I find myself looking forward to my next trip to anywhere else in SEA besides the PH. I have far more diverse choice of activities here. I have a lot more toys to play with that were prohibitive to own and/or enjoy in the PH. A lot of hobbies I enjoy were also very challenging or nearly impossible to enjoy in the PH.

 

I am anything but bored here.

come on who dont experience the faster heart beat the sheer excitment of driving to the mall in the middle of the day... the jaywalkers.. peddle trikes counter flowing jeeps stoping fast without brake lights , millions of bikes almost all with NO plate some with one racing and driving like a snake , others so overloded they can barley move and lets not forget vendors and parked cars  yes and all this while driving with the windows closed and dark tinted windows... for even more excitment take the same drive at 7 pm to experience the glaring headlights from the oncoming counterflowing trucks ... ohhh what ever dont kill you will make you younger

Confusing

Your profile says you are a Philippines: "Current Resident" so "here" in your post would refer to the Philippines.

I'm a permanent resident of the Philippines and have homes in three countries.

Unless your hobbies are chasing women, any country in the world has more to do than PH. And if you are a "foody" you will just want to kill yourself.

I don't know about the mechanic but I can't imagine you have difficulty finding someone that will drive off with your car.

How long does your permanent residency last if you remain out of the country?

That can often be a very complicated question.  While you think that you have severed most ties with a country and are no longer a permanent resident  their income tax department might think otherwise.

Ooh okay, so when you use the term "here" it means you are referring to the Philippines :idontknow:

Yeah but I thought it's pretty specific your return permit is only good for 1 year, or something like that.

The value of the parts is quite high, even those specific to the model.
