I am a retired sixth grade teacher from California who is presently living in the Philippines with my wife and two dogs. These videos aim to be entertaining, inspiring and motivating for people who are tired of the rat race and want to live a simple, yet rewarding life. My passions are studying and learning languages and helping people in any way I can.

  1. Wow so good singer and playing Guitar have seen guys like him when i was in Manila alot of them near Robinsons near the supermarket and they were good to thank you Bud really good interview

  2. Wow Bud this young man has together even with his disability . Wife, three children, a job, and love for the Lord. I hope some of those well todo subs can step up and help some of his dreams come true.

  3. Hello Bud, I have been watching your videos for about a year now and really appreciate your sense of humour and thankful for the time you dedicate to making them. However I have been finding it very disturbing lately watching your videos with your disregard for physical distancing. Even if you have no regard for the welfare of yourself or your wife, please consider the health and safety of this man you are sitting much too close to and even touching. People are dying every day in great numbers because of horrible virus, many of these not far from you.

  4. We enjoyed watching this vlog, Bud. Filipino resilience and hardwork defies any disability. We wish you all the best, Zaldy. Great work and God bless you always. Stay safe. 👍

  5. Hello there;
    In order to save some money and if you haven’t yet done so, as a suggestion consider MagicJack as a future phone service after returning to Canada.
    Have a safe and pleasant trip to and from Greece, and please keep us posted about your upcoming trip to the latter.
    Thank you!
