  Moving to Philippines - need advice , on accommodation , cities etc..
Posted by: Invoker - 55 minutes ago - Forum: Travel Forum - No Replies

Hi all

New forum member here, although I have been reading the blog for a long time.

Im looling at moving to Philippines end of Jan for about 3 - 4 months, me and my mate.

We are mostly moving there to do some work on our online business and of course a bit of freedom as we are both quitting pur jobs.

Our priority will be working on our business at least for the initial 2 months or so, and of course dping some online game and day game.

Looking for some tips and recommendations for some cheap accommodation with decent internet. 
If you have any links to look up some rentals will be sweet.

Most important thing for us is cheap and good accommodation ( not in the ghetto of course ?), and decent internet, city is not really important.

Any other tips recommendations, and advice in regards to rent, food, places, internet service, etc.. will be much appreciated. 

P.s of course I will buy the ebooks.

Thank you all.

  Returning home for a real job
Posted by: Vic Vega - 11-21-2017, 06:06 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (9)

I'm thinking of returning home to get a real job. Sick of teaching. 

What would my options be realistically in the US at entry level? And how bad is the average work environment these days? Is feminism really running rampant in fields like sales or IT, etc, or is that just RVF hysteria? 

I haven't been home for a long period of time since 2014, so I genuinely have no clue what's going on back there.

  Thoughts on the U.S. sexual harassment situation
Posted by: k pop - 11-20-2017, 11:51 PM - Forum: Game Forum - Replies (4)

I'd like to open up a thread for safe, unbiased thoughts about the current sexual harassment situation in the United States.

While many of these accusations are very necessary and I think will ultimately improve the conditions for all workplaces, I need to say it is beginning to feel like a witch hunt. Makes me even more eager to get back abroad.

I can say that after having suffered a totally unwarranted accusation many years ago, I do not have personal conversations with women at work here in  the U.S.  I typically try not to make sustained eye contact and maintain a safe distance. In my field, I'm forced to make difficult decisions that are sometimes misunderstood or disliked by my staff.  The one accusation I suffered years ago was from a colleague who was angry at a decision that she felt adversely affected her. Given the instability of a number of my colleagues, I don't take chances.

That is my personal experience and thoughts, but I'd invite any thoughts, stories, circumstances.

  Fascinating events in Saudi Arabia
Posted by: Dash - 11-20-2017, 01:57 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (10)

Anyone else following Saudi Arabia lately? 

First the King breaks all tradition and appoints his son as the crown prince aka 2nd in power and successor to the throne. A post that was always previously filled by the brother of the King. To do this they had to play some game of thrones type shit. Lots of controversy. 

Next, the new crown prince shakes up the government again sacking people and putting his own people in various positions. 

Just recently, the crown prince spear headed a corruption crackdown that included some of the richest men in the Middle East, one very famous billionaire prince in Al Waleed Bin Tahal. As well as some very prominent government officials like the former head of the Saudi National Guard. 

A helicopter carrying various princes and officials crashed killing all on board not long ago as well. 

Adding to the story, the Prime Minister of Lebanon was summoned to Saudi Arabia and it's presumed forced to resigned on Saudi owned media and still has not left Saudi Arabia leaving many thinking he is being held captive. 

This is one wild shit. The crown prince is pissing off a ton of very powerful people. Curious to see how all this will play out and the backlash if any that results.

  Post on hiring a PA
Posted by: BaddHabbit - 11-19-2017, 09:20 AM - Forum: Game Forum - Replies (8)

Hey guys,

A while back I ran across a post on the blog that had a series of questions/tests you could use when looking to hire a PA that I thought was really really good. I'm almost positive it was on Swoop, but I've just spent a couple of hours looking for it without any luck. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks, BH

  One week in SEA, where to go?
Posted by: on_the_go - 11-19-2017, 09:16 AM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (14)

I’m going to be spending a few months in Jakarta at the beginning of next year for work. I’ll use my free time to travel a bit within the country so thinking after I’ve done working taking a week to travel to another country in the region. Where do you guys recommend I go?
As a bit of background – the only place in South East Asia I’ve done before is the Philippines (I’ve mainly hit before North Asia - Japan, North and South Korea, China and Hong Kong). Had a good time in the Philippines but I’m wanting to go somewhere new. Never done Thailand,  but planning a bigger trip later next year to conquer it properly. 
At the moment I’m leaning towards Taiwan – thinking a place I can see a decent amount of within a week, although heard it can be a bit tough.

Lightbulb Epithet
Posted by: P.T. - 11-19-2017, 06:38 AM - Forum: Game Forum - Replies (2)

[Image: tqnsd3F.jpg]

What do you want written as your epithet? What word(s) or phrase(s) do you aspire to be synonymous with or exemplary of your name?  What would you want etched on your grave stone?  Go further and add some detail and think about how you want your obituary to read?

The idea is that once you have some idea of this, you can go further and apply some reverse engineering to your life, which may help you to figure out how to get there and live it accordingly in the now.  Of course it is a good idea to reflect on your life and look back, whether it is each year on your birthday or at the end of the year, or perhaps after you mark each decade, but what about looking forward as to how you want to live now, this year or this decade. 

Experience shows this is the nexus between prudence, reflection, and living a passionate life.

In ancient Greece, after a man passed, the question often asked was, did he live with passion?  Part of the practice was to remind a man to live life passionately because not doing so was an even harsher reminder of losing the opportunity, whether it was the situational opportunity or the totality of life, which once is gone, is gone.

  Where should I go in July/August ?
Posted by: Régis - 11-18-2017, 07:37 PM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (7)

Hey guys,

Next summer I will have a 2 months-break and I was wondering what would be the best place to travel : SEA, Eastern Europe, South America... ?
I don't have any preference. I haven't gone abroad for the last 5 years, so I am open to any ideas. The max I can spend is $1800.

I'm 20 and live in France. I'm 6'2", slim, brown hair/blue eyes, average face. There is just one issue: low confidence, and of course I completely lack game. 
In short, I'm totally helpless when it comes to get girls.

Anyway, where do you think I should go to have a great time ? (Translation: what place will offer me higher chances to get laid ?)

  Where would you settle in the US if you could pick anywhere?
Posted by: Dash - 11-18-2017, 05:16 PM - Forum: Travel Forum - Replies (5)

Assuming money wasn't an issue. 

I think for me it would have to be Santa Barbara, CA. 

Spring weather year round

Mountains and hills surrounding

Not crowded / traffic problems


Small town feel but still has everything I need

College town

Some tourists

Think the only thing I might be lacking is nightlife, especially in the way of Latin venues. 

Miami, FL could be an option, but man that heat and humidity is brutal.
