How Being An Expat for 8-Years Has Changed Me

(note: typo on-screen, 2019 should be 2017)
About Me.. Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat. (Mactan, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong, Boracay, Cebu) I recently spent the year living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Share with me here my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Dating, vlogging, cooking, traveling, expenses, visas and the information you need to make your own plans for living as a full-time expat in Southeast Asia. Subscribe for my upcoming videos and Click the Bell for notifications.

  2. Hey Reekay, I know exactly what you mean. I have very little close friends in my circle. Those needy drag you down people, I just weed them out.

  3. at 55 I’ve become much more of a loner other than occasionally dating compared to my social butterfly younger years .. im much happier in my own company rather than dealing with other people’s bs

  4. Always enjoyable and interesting to listen to Reekay. I’ve followed most of your journey with interest and learned a lot over the years. I’m happy for you, for where you are are now, emotionally and physically. You knew what you wanted, and you made it happen. Wisdom is a great quality, I would love to meet up with you one day. Take care always you two and stay safe. Best wishes.

  5. Reekay, I’m really looking forward to moving to the Philippines in 2021. I have done research and me and my filpina fiancé will be looking to settle in either cebu around IT park, or in Makati. I just have this feeling that my life will definitely change for the better. Hopefully when I get settled here, we can meet up and have a cup of coffee my friend. 😊

  6. I am closer to retirement and I have been to the Philippines a few times. I plan to split my time between here and there in three month segments. Anyway, I have seen how some expat are so rude toward waitresses in restaurants. It’s embarrassing. I go out of my way to tip them well and thank them for work they do.

  7. I’ve followed you since very close to the beginning and I’ve been a long time Patreon supporter of yours. I’ve always wanted to connect with you but figured (and understood) you’d be too busy to respond. But hopefully one day we could meet up and have lunch together. I’d love to share my situation and hear the your wisdom and advice.

  8. Wow, 8 years..your more local than me. Bohol is awesome. Born and raised here,moved to the US and now back living in Dauis,Panglao. Ya’ll take care out there in Cebu. It’s getting pretty crazy from what I see on the news.🙏🏼

  9. Reekay keep up what you’re doing and continue to be an axample of what western men should be doing at our age which is enjoy life and screw all the jealous people. There is no cure for jealousy except to lock them out of your life. May you have good health and good fortune always.

  10. FB has become echo chamber of Liberal retards and low-IQ entertainers, and I regularly get hauled off to the Gulag, but I see it as a reassuring sign that I’m normal, not some cancel culture Fascist.

  11. Hi Reekay, I really like what you said about people being accountable. Don’t blame others when, Blame spells your name. I always tell my co workers at Intel about your show,
    Stay safe and again Peace Bro!

  12. I’m a permanent resident for 5 years. Have seen you around Dumaguete. Get why you like the night time. It’s so beautiful here at night. Last time I saw you was in Kangs. You are much loved by Filipinos. God Bless.

  13. “Empowered abusive lunatics”……I see these type guys in the USA who go to the same local bar or pub everyday. They think because they go there everyday they’re empowered to run their mouths nonstop and be the tough guy even though they’re 60 years physically weak alcoholics.

  14. Thank you for all of your videos. I’ve learned so much from you. I’ve been to the Philippines four times and had a serious girlfriend and a fiance. I’m single again and looking at a much longer move at the end of this year if possible. I hope to meet you someday.

  15. You mentioned in a previous video that you came to the Philippines to marry the woman of your dreams but it didn’t happen because she had a change of heart.How did you get over that?You must have been super excited to begin a new life in a new country with a girl you were deeply in love with ,and then to have it all come crashing down like that must have been a real downer.I think a lot of guys would have returned to the the U.S.A. I’ve learned a lot from your videos, now I just got to summon up the courage to get over there.

  16. As an expat, just sit on the porch, stare at the sunset n realize that tomorrow is yet another “free spirit” day to welcome the possibilities!

  17. Sorry to bust bubbles but the year of Jubilee is actually at the end of seven cycles of shmita (the Sabbatical year). What you’re talking about is a Sabbatical year.

    Still the year of rest for the land is a good thing for the relationship too.

  18. Hey Reekay! I’m heading back to Cebu in mid September! I’ll be starting my channel back up just before leaving. The count down has started. Wish me Luck.

  19. Nobody marries in Germany because of poverty. You get married for love.
    There is government support through a secure social system.
    Foreigners who believe that the money growing on the trees is wrong. Foreigners also have to make their contribution so that a social system can finance itself.
    Only wanting to live on the money of the German citizen is dubious and a bad thought of foreigners in Germany.
    They steal from German citizens for the money they have paid each month as a contribution.

  20. Hi Henry, I have to tell you that your story was really interesting, I have been married to a Filipina for 14 years and we travel every 2 years to Asie Phillipines or Thailand and we are planning to live in the Philippines within 8 years, maybe not final. I hope this is as good for me as it is for you. Thanks for sharing your story. Greetings. 👍😃
