GG,

Well, I don't know of any hotel outside of Japan where you can just walk in, insert your credit card and rent a room without having contact with a person. You will always have to present yourself to the front desk for check-in and get your payment and preference details settled. Forget about private entrances, as your main concern in the PI should always be security, and having to walk past the security guard should be the least of your worries. They have seen it all before anyways.

I do not know your standards or budget, or even what part of Cebu City you are looking for a room, but one of the most discrete hotels in the downtown core that might suit your needs is the Gran Prix Econtel located on the corner of Mango Avenue (Maxillom Avenue on most maps) and F. Ramos Street. This hotel can be hard to spot and is located on the upper levels of the building. Look for the red hotel sign on the second floor. This hotel is basic but clean and be aware that some of the rooms do not have windows. You can book this hotel online for just under 1000P per night, which is around $20-$25 US-Can. A good price for the location.

Book this hotel online and then print out the confirmation from your email and take it with you to check in. If you really do not want the front desk staff to give you and your "date" the look when you are checking in, check in first get your room key then go get your date and return later.

I usually stay on Fuente Osmena at the Crown Regency when I am with my steady GF, but since the front desk staff and the guards all know me there I booked a second hotel room for a few days at the Gran Prix for some afternoon fun with another girl I met online.

If you use the search button on top of this page and search for "Sogo" there are a few posts awhile back about this short time hotel. I have never stayed so I can't comment.


The Sogo is a "proper" short term hotel in that it specifcally rents oiut rooms by the hour/3 hour etc, so you can get afew hours for 500P ish. The room quality is pretty good, and its styled for sex, mirrors on ceiling porn on tv etc.

It's got a normal entrance and you have to check in etc obviously they are used to sex visitors. What's your concern with discretion? If its a question of the girl not wanting to be seen to go off with a foreigner the Sogo's not such a good choice as if people see you going theer then there is only one reason.

The Grand Prix is an economy hotel not specifically short stay. For discretion it may be the better bet as there is a massage and other shops in the same building so if people see you going in its not absolutely clear what you are upo to - as it would be with Sogo. Rooms are clean and Ok not many windows. Lacks the designed for sex aspect of the Sogo

it is so easy to look decent. get some slacks. wear a shirt with a collar. go short hair and clean shaven --if you go long hair and/or beard, then hygiene is even more critical.

take it up a notch --ditch the sandals and tennis shoes. get some loafers, which are dressier yet still comfortable.

it's insane to travel so far, to be surrounded by tasty treats, and blow it because you can't be bothered to shower, shave, and get dressed.sr: this is only an opinion, but i concur. we dress even nicer in indonesia. the standard dress there (for most in public) is slacks, long-sleeve button-down collar (sleeves rolled up is fine) tucked, or batik untucked, loafers. they are the best-dressed poor peeps on the planet. the weather is the same in philipines. the difference is pilipinos dont dress as nicely as indonesians. for the gents who think dressing like they are on a caribbean beach (flip-flops, non-dress shorts, t-shirt) is fine, i can tell you the locals see you as a bum. ask your gf (not your barfine) or her mom. your slacks dont have to be fancy (painters pants or dockers), even denim is better than shorts, short-sleeve collared shirt is fine. sandals are fine, but leather with a backing, not just flip-flops. you are not at the beach, you are a guest in their country. the old-guy-beach-bum look is fine--if you are on the beach.

And what about the rest of us that dress tastefully, pressed polo shirt, nice shorts, good baseball hat and flip flops during the day? We gotta adhere to a daytime dress code there? Nope. I don't think so. I have my girls set up already and they know me from day to evening clothes. A well dressed guy in shorts, etc., showered, shaved and smells well can do very well during the day.

My comment was mainly a rant about guys who look like they have been drunk for a week straight, have not shaved, changed clothes or bothered to apply any kind of scented product what-so-ever. I mean if those guys like to live like that, then "ah salute" as Tony Soprano says. But the girls all take note of these things and the quality of girls you get is directly related to hygene and the way you dress. Most of these girls are very sharp, and they even notice what brand flip-flops you wear (slippers to them).

I also just wear a nice t-shirt or polo-golf shirts with cargo shorts and flip-flops on days when the Sun is high in the sky. I prefer to switch to a nice long sleeve Guess shirt, or long sleeve dress shirts with jeans or cargo pants at night when I go out. I think the key is just to keep it clean and look well put together and smell good at all times.

I find that when you do these simple things, then half the work is already done. A woman will decide to sleep with you within the first few minutes of any encounter. I am talking about just walking up to a girl in the mall or on the street, or when meeting a girl for the first time you chatted with on the dating sites. Working girls have standards too, but they crave your cash more.

I think what Spamhog posted has alot of merit. A month ago I was to attend a function with my GF. It was a Saturday morning and we were all dressed up. I was wearing black dress pants, a light blue long sleeve Hugo Boss collared shirt, just the basic office attire and she had on a dress and heels. We went to SM to get her hair and make-up done at one of the salons, and I was bored so I slipped away to walk around and get something to drink.

I walked around a few stores and I chatted with two very good looking promo girls that gave up there numbers to me with only minimal conversation, which was a first. Most promo girls think they are "special" and they wait to be given the guys number and they decide if they want to call or not, and this is only after she shows all the other girls at work I gave my number to her so she gets more attention as being above the rest of the other girls in the store.

The only change as far as I could tell was my clothes, so yes it does pay sometimes to wear nicer clothes when searching for the best looking women. A good test would have been to show up two weeks later dressed normally to see if I received the same reaction. Maybe next trip.

I agree with Keymaster on this also. The 1700 pesos includes the BF and the girls tip. One of the girls who use to work at Vikings told me this also. 700 pesos to the bar and 1000 tip goes to the girl. From my previous visit to the bars on Mango, Vikings, BG, Erik the Red and Club Temptations all quoted 1700 pesos. Dimples and Lonestars BF was quoted higher. My friend who BF a girl at BGs bar next to Vikings paid 1700 pesos but, she didn't even ask for any tip the following morning.

Oh guys, I was wondering, my last visit to Cebu was back in Oct 2009. What are the chances of seeing the same girls at the gogo bars?Very high sad to say.

Hey Mortman,
You are indeed a very brave man to patrol this area at 1:30am. When I use to travel thru here, I was always a bit on edge with senses at full alert even by 11pm.

I have had to frequent much worse places than Colon Street or Jonquera so I guess I may be a bit desensitised. It certainly feels like a walk in the park compared to some of the real cess pits I have been in (including my own country). That said you are right to keep your wits about you, I enjoy a beer but never ever get drunk. Jonquera I have found very safe, it is merely the impression that is deceiving and Colon Street late at night is reasonably safe compared to many other "civilised" cities I have worked in or travelled to.

Thought I would write a quick report, just returned from Moalboal. My first visit over a week ago was too short and the travel done in darkness, however this latest visit was done at a respectable hour.

Firstly if you go to Moalboal make sure you take cash. I made the mistake of hoping to rely on an ATM card as I usually do, only to find that there is not a single ATM machine in the whole town. The nearest ATM machine is at least an hours bus journey to CarCar and it is not a very pleasant journey. Unless you get an aircon bus which are not very frequent, you will end up on a cramped old bus with probably standing room only. I was lucky to find a resort that took credit cards so was able to charge most of my expenses to my credit card.

Forget taxis, Moalboal as far as I could see does not have taxis. You rely on the local motorised trikes which can work out very expensive once you make a few trips back and forth.

I went to Moalboal for some relaxation, a nice beach and some fresh air. Unless you like diving avoid Panagsama beach. I don'k know why they call it a beach, since there a couple of pocket hankerchief sized strips of sand and the rest is rock. OK for swimming but nothing fantastic.

The nice beach is situated about 12km outside of town and is called White Beach. It is a long sandy pleasant beach with many overpriced beach resorts. I went to a rather basic resort, no swimming pool and no breakfast total cost 3500 per night. The beach itself gets packed with Pinoys at the weekend so it would be best to hit it during the week and away from public holidays. A trike ride will set you back 150 pesos per journey, just try doing that a few times per day and your costs soon mount up. I don't know if the beach ever gets cleaned, but I was walking barefoot and trod on numerous plastic forks and spoons, dicarded water bottles and other detrius. Filipinos seem to have a knack of ruining anything that looks scenic with litter.

I took a cab from Cebu City total cost 1500 pesos but many drivers will charge 2500 upwards. Although it is two and a half hours journey by cab, the cost of LPG there and back is probably not more than 400 pesos, so for 5-6 hours work the driver is clearing 1000 pesos, not a bad wage for a Pinoy.

My journey started at 9am and I am sure my driver had a death wish. Late braking, no forward vision, swerving everywhere rather than steering, dangerous overtaking, constant horn beeping that drove me crazy, and driving way too fast for the road conditions. I had been out till 3am the night before and planned to use the journey to get some sleep before meeting my gf in Moalboal, but the driving put me in a cold sweat and constant fear of dying so I couldn't relax for a single minute. Some of you might comment that all cab drivers in Cebu are the same!

The final straw came about 40 minutes into the journey when the driver tried yet another unsuccesful overtake and nearly came head on into the path of an oncoming bus, causing the bus to slam on his brakes and my driver forced to swerve to the right almost colliding with another heavy goods vehicle.

I angrily ordered the driver to the side of the road, its times like this I wish I knew how to speak Visayas. Gave him a few choice words and made it clear to him that I wanted to arrive in Moalboal rather than not arrive at all. With the words "now for fucks sake drive more carefully" we set off again. My firm words managed to have some effect in that he drove marginally less dangerously than before and I just closed my eyes and accepted the inevitable trip by ambulance to the nearest hospital, but luckily for me we did eventually arrive safely.

If you do want to travel to and from Moalboal by taxi than make sure you get the number of the driver before he leaves. That way you can call him and tell him when you want to leave otherwise you will be at the mercy of the bus transport system and believe you me it is not pleasant.

There is some great scenery on the way to Moalboal but when you get there hire a motorcycle and better still hire a car in Cebu City before you leave. That way you can explore at your leisure. It is difficult to get around in Moalboal independently and if you have no transport you are at the mercy of the trike riders who inflate the price if they sense your need to be important. I didn't try the disco in town but there are numerous women offering massage along the beach. Some of these will perform extras but they are not widespread.

I didn't really enjoy my trip to Moalboal and came back early. I dare say if diving is your thing (and yes I mean diving underwater and not between legs) then Moalboal may be a far more attractive proposition

I've not been to Moalboal and after reading this write up it won't be high on my to do list.

For those interested to get out of Cebu I found Malapasca and Bantayan quite nice, I like Dumaguete -if you want to dive the area around Apo island is great and for the most beautiful beaches in Philippines take the 1500P ish flight from Manila /Cebu to here in Palawan. Of course in most of these places there isnt a superabundance of open minded girls, but there aren't so many guys hunting them either. All you need is a handful of cuties who are ready for action and its been a while now since I've slept with less than two babes.

Hi Mortman.

You mentioned in an earlier post not to pay more than 500P for a girl at Jonquera.
Did you take them to your hotel or a hotel in that area?

Are the girls allowed to go to your hotel for a ST?


Thanks.

Do you pay this 500 php directly to the pimp or to the girl AFTER the deed is done.

I paid directly to the pimp and took the girl out from Junquera to my hotel, but I found out that it is wrong to give it to the pimp ahead the service.

A Junquera girls wanted to leave after 30 minutes to 1 hr although 3 hrs have been agreed and they also refused BJ although it was agreed before.

Please. Give us some clarifications about this.

It has been some time since I posted on Moalboal so i will reiterate:

MB is NOT the sort of place one goes to find Girls, oh there are a few of them
around, you can score at the only disco open on ONLY Saturday night, the locals come from miles around to do just that. But it is better to bring your own.

Also, I recommend that you go by Bus, buss's rule the road in the Philippines
You can go to Citilink, just near Cebu city's E mall and get a Bus to "Berdian"
for about 50 pesos, get the airconditioned express bus and you get into Moalboal in about two hours. Taxi's are just too expensive and they drive like fools, same with those private cars that you can hire.

To my knowledge you can get a bus going south to MB and back again every hour or half hour.

Lots of great scenery going down to MB, some of the nicest in the PI IMHO.
I usually stay at Quo Vadis which has a nice pool.

Lack of ATM's lack of TV cable and sparse internet service make MB rather taxing, but itis a great place for a weekend getaway with a special honey who can make all the bargains for you.

I have used short time hotels and also taken girls back to my hotel. The Sogo hotel is walking distance of Jonquera, my preferred short time hotel. However if it is late at night you may prefer to use a cab although it is only 5 minutes walk.
I have never had a problem taking girls back to the hotel from Jonquera, I even took one girl to the Waterfront Hotel and left her in the bar whilst I went to use the sauna. Great to see the looks on peoples faces as I turned up at the most expensive hotel in town with a gorgeous young looking, 19 year old 500 peso hooker on my arm.

Good to see you back on the forum. Totally agree with your points, I wish I had hired a car or motorcycle, you are right the scenery and views are fantastic. With your own car at least you can stop whenever you want to take photographs, stop off and eat or get off the beaten track to explore and you will not be held to ransom in the resort itself by the local motorcycle trike taxis

I have always paid 500 direct to the pimp, usuallly a papasan but not always. This normally gives you around 3 hours with the girl and I normally try to agree the service up front with both the girl and the papasan before paying. I have had some truly fantastic experiences from Jonquera and others not so great. If you decide to keep the girl till morning you will pay the girl direct for extra time. I am sure there are variations on this theme as you do get freelancers in the surrounding areas and some very down at heel lady boarding houses that double up as brothels (take out only).
Hope that is a bit clearer?

Yo guys, I'm in Cebu right now. The gogo bars on Mango seem to be slow right now. It's not as busy as how it was when I was here back in Oct 2009. Maybe because I was there at a later hour. My friends DIA contact also told us that Julianas is not just closed due to rennovation but, because of the fights that been occuring at Julianas. Not sure if she is right on this though. Also, Sisters gogo bar on Mango Avenue is going in renovation and expanding it to be bigger. It should be open in a couple of days. This place is too small to begin with. Prices of the beer, ladies drinks and BFs at the Mango bars are still the same from my last visit in 2009.

By the way, I forgot that most places in Cebu don't accept older bills. I was trying to exchange an older $100 american bill and several places did not accept. Do any of you know what places would take older bill currency?

I'm sure one could probably score wearing a loin cloth and carrying a spear, however, it is not very becoming. You should hear the comments that the girls make to each other when they see a sloppily dressed foreigner, some guy with a sleevless T shirt, old shorts and especially flip flops.

Dressing oh so casually limits you to a sort of class of girl, those desperate enought to do anything with anyone. Show a bit of class and you will attract a bit of class which is what mall trolling is all about.

Don't forget, the malls are air conditioned.....


Spamhog

Agreed and disagree. Agreed....I could get laid walking naked on the streets, drop the loin cloth..

Disagree... But where in the PI are you visiting?? Doesn't matter if I'm deep in the province, rolling through the bars in Makati, or picking up girls in Ayala mall. Doesnt matter that I'm wearing flips(slippers), ok - a nice looking pair of polo shorts and a plain white Fruit of the Loom T-shirt. AND with all the Hot filipina's that were either my gf or just stayed a few nights, I let them dress me and thats what they wanted me to wear. (and were not talking bargirls as they really don't give two shits).. They didn't want me getting all dressed up, and I do also carry some nice duds in case of shotgun wedding or funeral...

The main point is be who you are. Filipina's don't care what your dressed in, believe me. Maybe the comments from the fili's that were with you about guys in flip flops were a direct result in a comment you made... Last point - When I'm working in Bangkok I roll with a guy in a wife beater(standard shirt of his preference) and we have zero issues with picking up any girls. And they look upon that a lot more discrimitive than girls in the Phils... And he lives in Tarlac with a smoking hot ass wife who tells him to wear that attire when were out in the PI.... And NO, she makes good money also!!!

Peace out!

A female friend of mine is very available. I've mentioned this girl before, she's a nursing student who has manged to get pregnant (14 weeks). Her mum's thrown her out of the house and been sleeping on friends floors and struggling to even more than one meals a day. As you can see from the attached pics she's very presentable, speaks fluent English and is bright, funny and chatty. If you are bored of bar girls and DIA dates who can hardly speak English and would like some dinner company then she could really use a square meal. If you are OK with pregnant girls she would probably be willing to stay with you if required - you can discuss that with her, she's in dire need of some cash. She's very open minded and you can talk about anything or ask her to bring another girl along.

The Lighthouse where the pics were taken is by the way an excellent restaurant located next to Mango Park Hotel on General Maxilom Blvd. If you want her to come out you will need to fund the taxi as she has literally no money right now.

You can PM me for contact details

If SM does not work, there is a small money changer on the outer edge of the mall accessable from the parking lot.(you don't enter through the mall entrance) Also check the money changer in the basement of Robinsons Fuente. They have always excepted older bills and their exchange rate is good!

J Smith 5023 and Mattrick, thanks for the info on the money exchanging. I was able to find a place. Fooda saversmart on Mango does exchange the older currency $100 bill. I'm surprised how early Fooda saversmart closes. It closes at 8:00pm. On my last trip in 2009, it was open till 10 or 11:00pm.

By the way, one of the girls I BF from Lonestar also warned me about Mango and Julianas. She did mention to me about the HIV needle thing going around Mango Avenue.

[QUOTE=Gangles]Hello GL,

Your inbox is full, so you cannot take any more PMs.

Is this the girl you wrote to me about before, Miss J?

If not, I am pleased to entertain her when I am there soon.

G[/QUOTE

yes this is Jyn

if you can meet her and help her out when you get to cebu that would be cool. I dont think you would regret it plus she has a bunch of sexy girl friends

As one who trys to exchange as infrequently as possible & being too lazy to venture beyond Ayala much. I discovered the exchange joint outside on the upper most (3rd?) level is always @.1% ( USD ) better than the 1 on the inside 1sr floor. As I generally keep a stash of pesos I just watch the rate and trend & replenish when needed. Also found the Globe tatoo, 999p, to be a much less expensive option to access the internet vs the Marriott. 50p for unlimited 24hrs.

This is not really a mongering story but thought I would share it with you guys anyway,some of you may find it interesting.

Was back with Daisy my regular gf and her two kids and staying at the Monteobello Villa Resort in Cebu City. If any of you guys have a gf with kids and you are in Cebu, then I can highly recommend this place, massive swimming pool, kids pool, and extensive gardens that they can explore in complete safety and half decent food. A short 10 minute cab ride to Ayalla Mall, half the price of the Marriot and a completely tranquil oasis in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of this city.

Anyway back to my story. I was with the kids in the pool, had left Daisy in the room to get changed and after 30 minutes began to wonder what had happened to her. I sent her several texts none of which she replied to. 45 minutes went by and my instincts told me something was wrong, so I scooped up the kids and headed back to the room.
I opened the door and was greeted by a sobbing, half hysterical woman throwing herself on the floor like some melodramatic actress from a 50's B movie.

With several minutes of intensive coaxing, I managed to wrest from her the reason for her sudden collapse into a complete emotional breakdown. Apparently her landlady had called her by phone to tell her her house had burned down along with all her (sparse) possessions, her kids clothes, school uniform, the whole lot.

Now I have been with Daisy for around a year and a half but I guess I have spent too long in the company of Thai women so my cynicism stepped in and took over. Without a shred of evidence I just assumed that this was a ploy to extract sympathy money from me. But the children had also started crying when they heard the news and I just did not believe a mother would put her kids through that kind of emotional pain just to elicit more money from me for a tradgedy that she had made up.

I managed to get the number of the landlady and went to the lobby where I knew the receptionist very well. I told her what had just occurred and asked her to call the landlady using my cell phone and try to find out what had really happened. There followed a short intense phone conversation between the two of them and after it was concluded the receptionist turned to me and said "there has been no fire at all, the landlady does not know anything about a fire"

In an instant I felt betrayed and I believed my worst fears had been confirmed. I was now sure that the woman I trusted had lied to me. Boiling with anger, but trying hard to remain calm I returned to the room and effectively told Daisy that if she lied to me again, she and the kids would be on their way back home and never see me again. However Daisy stood her ground, would not flinch and insisted she was telling the truth so I told her what the receptionist had discovered.

Daisy seemed genuinely shocked and she got straight back on the cell to the landlady. Now although I do not understand Visayas, what I did understand from the ensuing phone conversation, is that one almighty mother of a row took place. I then get a text from the landlady saying how sorry she was, she had lied to Daisy about the fire because she was so jealous of Daisy and begging me for forgiveness.

Now Daisy has often mentioned to me how much her neighbours and landlady were jealous of her but I never attached much significance to it before. I often buy Daisy and her kids new clothes and jewellery and considering she and her kids live a very simple and basic life, in a neighbourhood stricken with poverty, I guess she does look out of place wearing gold earings, a gold plated seiko watch, kids with nice clothes etc.

Of course Daisy accepted my apology how could she fail to forgive her only benefactor, but I was genuinely sorry and took her and the kids out for some shopping to show my remorse.

I do not buy extravagant gifts but I guess for Daisy's position in life the gifts are probably as unobtainable to her neighbours, as the latest solid gold, jewel encrusted rolex is to me.

I have often wondered (and even expected) that Daisy would pawn off her gifts when I returned home in the past but she has never done so.
I just thought I would post this little story to show how petty jealousy can turn people into really cruel and nasty individuals and how my cynicism affected and undermined my judgement of Daisy.

She has now gone back to Alegria, apparently the landlady dropped to her knees to beg for forgiveness when she saw Daisy arrive. I wonder whether it is really genuine remorse, OR the fear of Daisy, who is a 2nd Dan black belt Karate instructor....my money is on the latter!

Was with a fellow ISG member the other evening undertaking some further research along the Reclamation Road area of Downtown Cebu. I had been told by a semi pro that I had met, that this area is well known with locals for the availability of street girls who sell themselves for 300 pesos a time. She added that it is easy to find many girls along this road.

Now yes I admit this is the real seedy end of P4P but I am always happy to explore new frontiers and go down market now and again, it can be quite an adventure sometimes. Well I had already visited this area a few nights ago with a different ISG member but we found the pickings to be slim. The cab driver told us it was because we had come down too late (1.30am) and that the optimum time is around 7pm.

So the second visit was conducted at around 8pm but apart from a few skanks, there wasn't too much around. We ended up in a side street of the Reclamation Road and came across the Arena Club purely by accident. I have never been to this club but do recall some posts about it in the past and never wishing to pass up on a potential opportunity the two of us went in.

It was roughly around 9pm, the club was almost empty and the quality of the girls was excellent. It is a 200 peso (non negotiable) entrance fee and the barfine for the girls costs 6000 pesos, however if you opt for one of the supermodels the cost then goes up to an eyewatering 8000 pesos. Drinks are expensive with two Coke Lights costing 80 pesos each. Club looks very slick and upmarket, but then I would expect that for the prices charged.

No wonder the club was empty though with those kinds of prices, or maybe we were there just too early to see how busy it actually gets. Maybe it caters predominantly for the high rolling Koreans, but I for one have better things to do than spend nearly 10,000 pesos on a girl for the night.

Stopped off yet again at Jonquera again for another walkabout. One or two cuties but nothing drop dead gorgeous and not the girls in the numbers I remember from last year. I completely forgot to warn my wingman that when you arrive there at night, the pimps all high on Shabba start to hammer on the windows as the taxi pulls up. They do not really mean to be aggressive just over exhuberant, but my wingman thought that we were about to be attacked and robbed for a second. In fact they were so enthusiastic the driver ended up clipping one of them with his wing mirror as we were pulling into the side of the road. Thought I would mention this in case any of you head back there, please don't worry about this, it is perfectly normal Jonquera behaviour although it can be a bit intimidating at first.

Ended back at Blue Angels again, selection of girls was sparse this night but still a nice place to relax and enjoy a reasonably priced drink or two. My wingman left to get some food and I headed back to Mango Square where we had stopped off earlier that evening. Found an absolutely gorgeous girl sitting at one of the tables with her friends in the square itself and went up to chat to them. She was tiny and only about 5' tall wearing an incredibly sexy white frilly dress over shorts. She had accentuated her gorgeous eyes with tastefulfully applied makeup and I found myself getting hard just chatting to her. I wasted no time at all and told the girl I thought she was cute and asked her if she wanted to come back with me.

Her friends whispered back that I should wait around the corner which I did and after about two minutes her and her friend joined me. The friend did all the negotiating and asked for 1000 pesos up front but I refused and told her I would pay the girl at the hotel. They eventually agreed and off I went with the hottest cutie of my trip so far.

Took her to the Greenland Hotel, I normally use the Sogo but this was my first time at this hotel. Despite some of the adverse comments I have seen on the board about the Greenland, it serves it purpose very well. Extremely discreet, no reception to go through, the taxi drives into the hotel and straight to your room. The room was reasonably clean with a huge bath that could accomodate 4-5 people. For 200 pesos I was not disappointed. Hotel kind of reminds you of a large multi storey car park in a shopping mall, where you drive up ramps to each floor. Although a bit more seedy than the Sogo, this place is by far the most discreet. I actually paid for the room on my way out and was the first contact I had had, with any members of staff since I arrived, apart from a security guard and room attendant.

The girl took ages to shower, would not let me join her and eventually I get her on the bed. Would not kiss and when I tried found her lips to be extremely dry to the point of being unpleasant to kiss. She was a complete starfish but her beauty and shape was enough for me to get off on and after about ten minutes of DATY I entered her and finished within a couple of minutes. Turns out I am her first "Foreigner" which accounts for her friend doing all the negotiating earlier. Won't be seeing her again and dropped her off back at Mango Square with a 1000 peso note in her pocket. I did warn her that many foreigners would have kicked her out for refusing to kiss but don't know whether my warning will be heeded. Anyway she was as good looking as any of the girls in Arena, I don't think she will be charging so little for very much longer!

I wouldn't buy that. If she is drop dead gorgeous and hanging around Mango Square I would estimate the probability of your being her "first foreigner" at less than 1% . Much more likely it's just an excuse to give crappy service and get back on the beat as soon as possible.

Hi GL

Your assessment may be correct but I am usual able to spot a newbie at a 100 paces (or so I like to think :-))

Her unwillingness to be seen leaving the square with a foreigner was one indication, (I had to wait around the corner), her innability to negotiate a price for herself was another, her request for money up front in the street and her complete embarrassment at talking to a foreigner all indicated she was telling the truth and that I was her first ever foreigner. Also the price paid was way below the price she could have commanded had she been a bit more astute and business minded, all further indications of a newbie in my humble opinion.

I have also found girls are generally upfront about sleeping with foreigners for extra cash, particularly if they are not potential gfs and they know you are seeing them for sex only. I really did and still do believe I was her first foreigner but it would be no great tradgedy if I am wrong. Bottom line is that she was a completely crap fuck and I guess that is the most important issue

By the way, I forgot that most places in Cebu don't accept older bills. I was trying to exchange an older $100 US bills and several places did not accept.


As a general rule as this is good info for any monger. DO NOT leave home with older US currency or any bills that have tears in them as most exchange places will either not accept them or give you a BS story that they can only except them on a much much lower rate. $100 bills should be the ones printed 2006 and newer. Some places will not accept bills printed 2004 or before due to very high # of counterfeits. BTW: this info is true for almost anywhere in Asian, and not just PI.

Hey Sharka, yah good info to know about this. I actually knew about this before coming to Cebu but, I forgot about this and only realized it when I was trying to exchange it at a 24hour money exchanger on Mango Avenue.

Fortunately, Fooda Saversmart on Mango Avenue does accept older currency bills. I was thinking they will not accpet also because most place do have a sign that states: "Will not accept older currency bill" But, I just decided to try and pulled out my very old 1991 series $100 US bill. She accepted it. Thank goodness Fooda Saversmart accepted it because I had $700 worth of older 1991 series $100 US bills.

So, if anyone is in Cebu and has an older currency bill, go to Fooda Saversmart on Mango Avenue it is near the gogo bars Pussycats, Love City, Dimples and Papillon on Mango Avenue. It is between Metro Bank and those gogo bars I just mentioned. The last time I exchanged was on 5/20/10 date and the rate was 45.85 pesos for $1 US bill.

Also, some places do accept smaller currency bills also. They will take $20 US bills but, the exchange rates will be lower. It will be about .50-1.00 pesos lower rate.

I found the best rates to be right in Robinson's on Fuente Osmena. Currency exchange is located in the basement by the supermarket and near the food court. Usually there are 2 girls working and I would exchange $200 US at a time. Rate was always the best, then I would proceed upstairs to my hotel, the Midtown, by going thru the mall, without having to go outside.

Is there any way I can have her meet me at the airport even though I am already in Cebu? Or is this a non-starter?

I read this thread with much surprise.
I don't know how this works for people from other countries, so excuse me for being surprised, but I can go to any ATM, insert my bank card (note: not credit card) and extract money at the current exchange rate, without any charge. I am a Dutchman and all (that is: ALL) Dutch banks work like this. I do not have to waste money at money changers.
Is this different from banks in other countries? If so, there is a lot of development to be done in these so called civilised countries.

First, the particular machine may charge you a small fee. It might tell you before you withdraw the money. Say for example you are withdrawing $100 (5000 pesos). When you get home you may notice the withdrawal was for $102 on your bank statement. The extra $2 goes to the owner of the ATM. Second, your bank (where your ATM card is from) will usually charge an out-of-network fee, about $5. So your $100 cash (5000 pesos) withdrawal really costs $107. It might be cheaper to exchange your dutch cash at an exchanger in filipines.

I used to use the money exchanger in basement of robinsons mall also,but it was to out in the open where EVERYONE can see you counting your cash and there was no security. So i switched to the moneychanger at raintree mall near robinsons. Its more private and there is a security guard at the door plus two or more right on the street.

My advice would be just to tell her that you are interested to meet two girls, if she can't accept that , then just find another who can, preferably one that enjoys a threesome and then your problems are solved.

Sure its possible to go back to the airport with all your luggage, the guards are not supposed to let people back into the luggage collection area but you may get them to do it, then you need to hang around till GF1 gets there, but really why bother???? This is the Phils. Many girls quite possibly including GF1 can accept that you will try other girls. Just be honest about it and save yourself a big headache.

This is way too complicated and a silly thing to contemplate. G/f 2 must be hot for you to want to be tied up with someone like her who is obviously very jealous and possessive.
Just don't tell her when you are arriving. Hit town, do what you want with GF1, and then contact GF 2 and tell her where you are and that you're ready to meet. My bet is she will still turn up.
But my bet is that she will find out about GF 1 anyway.

The Dutch banks are particularly generous about this and the US banks typically very inefficient/expensive. In the Phils the local bank/ATM owner will typically charge 150P per withdrawal for foreign cards. I think BPI does not charge this amount so is worth searching out. Anybody know of other Phil banks which don't charge.

Your bank at home may or may not charge something. In the US 99% of banks do charge though there are a couple of exceptions - mostly either restricted to holders of specialist accounts or small local credit unions. In the UK Nationwide used to be free and I believe still is for their less commonly issued Mastercard/Cirrus card but even for their mainstream Visa debit card they remain the best UK option. Typically Visa / Mastercard will take 1% from international transactions ie in different currencies but this sum is burried in the FX rate. I think even Dutchman cant avoid this payment.

If you are a guy spending months per year overseas it's really worth while figuring out the best solution as it can save you 5% of your spending.

I know where you mean. Have been there also. It's 6 of one, half dozen of the other. In Robinson's I go directly to my hotel room without going outside. In Raintree Mall the guards are there...but once you leave and are on the street, anything can happen. Anyways, ATMs are probably the worst, given the charge by my USA bank to exchange $$$. Have fun, don't sweat the small stuff.

I've been planning my first trip to the Philippines for so many years now it's ridiculous, but today that has all changed. I booked my flight! I'll be arriving in Manila middle June and staying until middle August. As in my last thread, I'm planning on staying in Manila for 3 or 4 days and then heading up to Angeles City for another 3 or 4 days and then flying down to Cebu for the remainder of my time.

The main thing I am concerned about is getting a good rate on comfortable and safe hotel/apartment/condo/B&B at a monthly rate - budget is MAX monthly rate $37k peso. I've been reading TripAdvisor.com and some other forums but am still uncertain quite what to do. Seems to me I might just find a hotel to stay in and be done with it, but what hotel?

I'll be needing aircon, a fridge, internet access and hot water.

I've been reading that it's a good idea to be close to mango Square. Thoughts on this? So far I'm thinking that staying in Cebu City is the thing to do but I'd love to hear others ideas.

Very excited to FINALLY get to the PI.

Seems to me I might just find a hotel to stay in and be done with it, but what hotel?

I'll be needing aircon, a fridge, internet access and hot water.

I've been reading that it's a good idea to be close to mango Square. Thoughts on this?
There are a plethora of clean, safe and reasonable hotels and pension houses available in Cebu city so no need to worry.

Yes for the first time visitor, I would recommend something near Mango Square or up in Lahug. Those areas are very safe and easy walk to the restos, bars, shopping, laundry, banks, etc. Centrally located and a fifteen minute cab ride to Ayala mall and most anywhere else.

There is a nice apartment I know of near Ayala for 28,000 php but you can do better spending 25,000 php or less with more amenities and services at a hotel or pension house.

Sorry about the PM system. Not sure if I'll set that up or not.

Thanks for the info!

Mattrick,

Is that 25,000 or 28,000 per month?

Thanks.

Usually spent 2 weeks at a time in Cebu. Favorite hotel was Midtown, built directly over Robinson's dept. store. If this is your first time, just pick a nice hotel and get to know your way around. Then, if you wish to change locations, it is very easy to do. Don't get locked into an apt., especially for a month, if you don't know that you want to be in that location. Just a thought.

Forgot to mention that it is within walking distance of a lot of bars, and all the girls know where it is. Very secure, with fridge. If you don't like the location/service/room, move to another hotel. Check out Lahug area, etc.

My max budget per month was actually $800 USD but from all I've learned, that's way too much. A Cebu based forum has been strongly suggesting the Sarrosa International Hotel and Residential Suites and can stay there for about 22K per month. They say they are 1 bedroom condos and online reviews are good. Anyone know about this place? I just hope its GF.

A great experience in Cebu. I was in Ayala on a Sat night in mid May 2010, just having a bite to eat before heading to my usual haunts. Jaguar and Arena. I walked past a restaurant and saw a beautiful 'promotions' girl at the door. Just for perving, I thought I would go inside. She led me to a table that was empty. Inside was a stunning model (also promoting the beer). About 5'9, 20 yrs old, slim, big tits and fit legs and arse and a stunning beautiful face. She told me that for Peso 120 I could get three beers. I said yes. I drank them to build up dutch courage for my next act. I had never tried to pull a girl in the mall before, especially so hot. Basically, I asked her how many beers she had sold and then asked what time the promotion ended. She told me. That was the end of the conversation. Before I left, I decided I had to do something. I wrote my number on a piece of paper and asked her to call me if she was free to hook up later. She took it but did not say anything. So, I was just pleased that at least I went for it. Otherwise I would have kept saying "what if". She did not call. I went to Arena/Jag but did not see anything worthy of a barfine. Went to PUMP after, managed to get a very drunk Jaguar girl to get back to my hotel. Fucked her and sent her home with 4000 peso. Woke up at 1am with the idea that I would go to beach, etc. Then, out of the blue, I got a text from the hot model from Ayala just saying hello. I asked her if she was doing anything. She said no. I asked if she wanted to joing me for the say. She said sure! She asked me if she could bring her friend (the door girl from night before) I told her to come alone. She said no thanks as she was a little worried. I said ok, bring friend. One hour later, they turned up at my hotel, both looking hot. We simply had some lunch, went to the beach for a bit and then back to my hotel. At the hotel it got a bit awkward as I really wanted to fuck one but difficult with the other one there. We all chatted for a bit. I then said look it was getting late and perhaps they should go home. I have them 5, 000 peso as a present to get themselves something nice. They were shy to accept but then took it and left. It made my day!

I know where you mean. Have been there also. It's 6 of one, half dozen of the other. In Robinson's I go directly to my hotel room without going outside. In Raintree Mall the guards are there...but once you leave and are on the street, anything can happen. Anyways, ATMs are probably the worst, given the charge by my USA bank to exchange $$$. Have fun, don't sweat the small stuff.
Once you leave the money changer there at least 2 or 3 armed guards protecting the strip center. Theres a gun shop with a armed guard standing there also. Walk out,and grab you a taxi and hope for the best!!! With the downstairs Robinsons if you exchanging a large sum you must count it to verify the total. And even customers standing in line at the grocery can count large bills right along with you. Robinson would be my 2nd choice though.

Yo guys, I'm in Cebu right now. The gogo bars on Mango seem to be slow right now. ...My friends DIA contact also told us that Julianas is not just closed due to rennovation but, because of the fights that been occuring at Julianas. ..Juliana was closed and the whole are was empty almost like a ghost town. I heard from some local girls the foreign owner had to sell within short time for some reason (involved in some monkeystuff) and the new local owner is renovating but also changing name. From other girls I heard about the HIV-needle, but the people around here said this was a very old rumour only.

By the way, Juliana is the brandname, so changing name seems to me like a very bad idea, time will show.

Ko, most likely several things happen when you use an ATM in philippines (even if you are not aware of it at the time). First, the particular machine may charge you a small fee. It might tell you before you withdraw the money. Say for example you are withdrawing $100 (5000 pesos). When you get home you may notice the withdrawal was for $102 on your bank statement. The extra $2 goes to the owner of the ATM. Second, your bank (where your ATM card is from) will usually charge an out-of-network fee, about $5. So your $100 cash (5000 pesos) withdrawal really costs $107. It might be cheaper to exchange your dutch cash at an exchanger in filipines.Not for me. I pay only 2-3% higher currency rate. Why in h... carry cash these days, that is to ask for trouble.

I met two girls last month in Cebu who told me that the owner got them pregnant and left them. Not a great way to extend your stay.

Aren't pension houses like shared homes where you just get a basic room? I definitely want something private and comfortable.
Sorry about the PM system. Not sure if I'll set that up or not.

Thanks for the info!I believe you are thinking about the backpackers shared dorms and bath. Yes, some of the pensions do offer these also but most pensions have single or double private rooms with baths. Alot of these pensions are usually clutter together so just a matter of showing up (assuming not prime season), if you don't like the place or room, simply walk across the street to another.

I've been planning my first trip to the Philippines for so many years now it's ridiculous, but today that has all changed. I booked my flight! I'll be arriving in Manila middle June and staying until middle August. As in my last thread, I'm planning on staying in Manila for 3 or 4 days and then heading up to Angeles City for another 3 or 4 days and then flying down to Cebu for the remainder of my time.

The main thing I am concerned about is getting a good rate on comfortable and safe hotel/apartment/condo/B&B at a monthly rate

So far I'm thinking that staying in Cebu City is the thing to do but I'd love to hear others ideas.

Very excited to FINALLY get to the PI.Welcome to PI,

My only thought is that unless you have ties here like friends and family in Cebu city itself, then spending 1 month here may be a nice thought but also maybe a bit too long. Cebu is not really that big of a city so your daily options could run out fast over a month's time. But if you are a beach person or diver and also plan to spend time travelling to those places (all within a few hours bus /taxi ride) then thats a different story and I'd say go for it.

Disclaimer: Sorry, this is just a general statement and thought I had on the matter of staying in Cebu over a month for a newbie, so not to offend those ex pats living there.--IMO

. To say that Juanquerra is easy, is complicated.Yeah, know what you mean. The 1st time I was there, a street tout walked me through several small alley and after several turns, I certainly wasn't sure where the place for action was anymore. Then the 2nd time I went back to the basketball court area where I was shown the once with the ladies just to find the place empty and the action had moved further up the alley. So, yes the place could be complicated.

Both pharmacies did not sell these pills and the girl behind the counter at Rose pharmacy was positively hostile when I mentioned the words "emergency contraception".

She knew of one other pharmacy in Mandaue City called Bing Pharmacy that had supplied a tablet marketed under the brand name Cytotec the main ingredient of which is a drug called misoprostol which induces a miscarriage and is very effective for pregnancies under 12 weeks.Very important to know that the active ingredient in the original "morning-after-pill" or "emergency-pill" is 1, 5 mg levonorgestrel. You need only 12 pills of wellknown brand trust p-pills to get this amount, making the total cost be less 13 peso or 25 cent. On internet some sources recommend 5 pills, 5 hours wait, then 5 pills. This mix has worked very well for me, always. As far as I know.

Levonorgestrel is for not getting pregnant, while Misoprostol is for abortion after she got pregnant. But to be sure, the medication for abortion is 200 mg Mifepristone, then 24 hours later 4 tablets Misoprostol, then another 4 hours and 2 tablets Misoprostol. If you are in real trouble, www.Womanonweb.com can help. Don't forget that abortion in Philippines is probably illegal.

And regarding catholic rules, to hell with the pope who deny the catholic people contraceptives and keep all people down with all these unwanted babies. He is more focused on protecting his own cardinals from the consequences of their children-abuse. Or should we say halleluja to him, all the children is maybe the reason why there are so many nice girls for us.

SharkI have to somewhat agree with this as I was there a whole week and it was enough for me as I was running out of places to visit, but next time I plan to go venture outside Cebu to the beaches and this would be one reason I would extend my time there beyond a week in Cebu.

So, if you need to fuck without cover, be careful. FYI: the girls I had were "Racer" from Jaguar and a girl called "Barbie" from Arena. Can't remember name of Manila girl (but picked her up from Asian Entertaiment KTV).

On the contrary, most pensions in Cebu are as good or better then comparable priced hotels. They are usually off the main drag tucked away in quieter neighborhoods and more discreet for you know what! Pensions have all the services you expect from a hotel but at a lower price.

I'm looking at the Sarrosa Hotel and Suites. I've heard mostly good things about them and that the location is less chaotic than in Mango Square and still close.
They are located in Mabolo maybe 20 to 30 minute cab ride to Mango Square. If you stay there write a FR on your experience.

When you hit the ground, I can put you in touch with a few real estate agents once you get your PM working. You can even ask them out on a date! Yes Lex that was per month plus finders fee for the agent.

Hey, anyone had to pay a 500 pesos entrance fee at Club Temptations? I don't recall seeing this on my last trip to Cebu back in Oct 2009. When me and my friend went there we seen it listed. But, they did not ask us to pay 500 pesos at the door. However, when I went there by myself, the guard at the front brought it up and said: "500 pesos entrance fee" The place was so dead that I guess they're getting desperate.

I don't understand why some of you guys would go condomless just for that short moment of excitement. I admit I don't always finish with a condom on and don't feel it enough but, I still won't take off a condom and do a girl condomless. I just let her finish me off with HJ.

Me too Robb.
When any "go go bar" in Cebu charges me an entrance fee they will see me do a U-turn and not see me again. I don't have a problem with entry fees to live-music venues like Sunflower as there is a band playing and it usually means a discount off a first drink too, but when bars start charging you just to walk in the door then no thanks.

Back in the saddle in Vancouver after my 7 month sojourn to la la lands - Thailand China and Cebu - the main event.

Overall I am alive and more importantly healthy and very well now. I had a great time never suffering from back up sperm accumalation the whole time I was there - in other words no need to jerk off.

Only negative to the trip was would you believe it? Meth Resistant Staph Infection from significant drippings that got on my penis after taking a condom off - bad luck. Lesson? Even with a condom watch out - smell and finger test might help, only a culture would have shown it from her side. Probably staying away from the *****s would be better. Thats why I was happy to be in Cebu where there is a stable of regular girls that dont do the numbers as they do in Pattaya.

Another lesson, if all tests come up negative and you still have discharge a semen culture is the silver to gold standard for those rare infections. Fail that, you could be suffering chronic prostatis - I hit it lucky and got the culture in time before my big gun suffered.

Well I usually give the feel good posts. I will wait for a few more days to give my report on my five months in heavenly Cebu.

Hey, be careful with that culture, a friend had it and its a bad one after about 6 months your dik turns yellow and falls off.

He said it took another month to start growing back, like a lizards tail.

Another friend caught aids there and said it was really hard to get rid of.

Fuking *****s without a condom is like Russian roulette.

Yearly Report Cebu

Was there from Dec 15 to May 10

First part was the usual busy period up to end of January - hard to find taxis, afternoon rains, Sinulog madness, traffic jams. From thereon, there was a serious lack of rain and best weather i have seen in years - almost ever yday clear afternoons, little rain. I guess it hurt the farmers but not the layabouts at the pool.

Discos: Sunflower is in 30% decline from last year - no shows for ladies night, but still a great disco setup with pickup potential. Nasa is only on weekend and is only a shadown of its former shadow self. Pump One is going full tilt.

Bright spot across the street for those looking for imported draft beers and a busy xpat scence - Jokers. With exception to Gustavian's Tap Room which is top shelf for food and ambience. The smoke at Jokers would get to a non smoker and its tap beer is spotty at times but is priced lower if its "off" which seems often.

The Sports Xchange above Juliana's is a very welcome new comer. Its huge, tap SM, and food is good. I like it. Then there is old standby Badgers and that lame bar across the street in Country Mall which I will not return to. I get my regular pool fix at baseline near cebu grand convention which has great tables and price and the plain vanilla food and beverage offering at upscale local prices. Joker is a bright new spot for me for the imported tap beer.

City Grill Mango is no more the one in Busay isnt that great but has a few tables with a decent view. The discos at Mango Square vicinity are the same ol. Locals prefer You Bar area and tourists look for a pickup venture around Mango Square - no change. Julianas was closed for the last month i was there - with no sign on the wall from police or authourities - it must be internal strife / stealing.

GRO Bars - Bright spot was the new reno at Silver Dollar and new owner and food improved a bit and atmopshere too. Went to the usual haunts from Arena for the show, Mango Bars if out with a visiting friend. I prefer Silver Dollar for an afternoon drink if in area to get the half price on the beer before getting smoked out. I do take the inquiring "good ladies" to accompany me to Viking to check out the show. Other than that the gro scene is much what it was last year - boring.

Accomadation: Just a few new hotel/pension houses which I did not visit this year as I am set in my choice of hotel for long term stay and no need to be further dismayed at the quality of accomadation in the Phil relative to Thailand. Most of the new growth is in Mabolo, which is near Ayala. Sarossa extension is complete - great for big families. The new hotel across from the defunct disco Paseo is up to my standards like Alpha Suites down the street from it. If both dropped their price in half I would consider it which from looking at the windows at night - no lights ; it looks as if they will have to. There promises to be a few significant hotel openings next year - notably the one next to SM and a few near Ayala. Mabolo is over supplied imop. Ford Hotel on AS Fortuna has lowered their prices and is the only bright spot I found in the whole trip. Ford represents the best value hotel that is not worn out. The roosters out back are gone. Crown Garden is growing older and getting worn but still represent best value for me as I work out at City Gym Waterfront hang out at IT park and prefer to stay away from Fuente. There is a massage parlor downstairs now and of course the best native restaurants in Cebu within 1 min walk of the hotel. Pino 3 min up the street is worth the walk. Close proximity to the establishments you frequent is helpfull in Cebu traffic. Pussy can always come in a taxi.

Spent a few late nights dancing there. The one year penthouse party was packed to the rafters. Represents the most normal type of disco you can find in Cebu yet it is still an after midnight location. If your target is richer more social ladies then thats the place besides the Church. However I prefer Sunflower. Pump 1 is fine if you are deaf already and Korean or just need a one hour full on disco blast from 11pm to 1am. Its busy and fun enough. Mango discos are a bit gritty for me and not that busy; but fine if you need to pass some dirty water at 2-3 in the morning.

Music Spots with a Date and need Air Con but no ear plugs?

You Bar Mango Sq and Parkmall are both newer quality resto bars with air con worthy of a night out on the town with a date and some pickup potential at Mango.

Jazz and Blues remains the best value high quality music venue. Shine up those dance shoes - Tango Waltz for 9pm to 1 am Bring your own date.

Patio Elicia below the Loft / Penthouse is still ok. They have a location at Ayala too.

There are several establishments in the major hotels with the Lobby at Waterfront being the most consistent just watch out for the mosquitos and the roving part timers looking to hook up with you. Yeah I know I hang out there after the work out in early evening and can usually spot a few most days. I never negotiated because I think my 200p short time starting price might set them off. I usually settle on 500p.

By the way Jokers is on As Fortuna and across the street from NASA or next door to the Poker place. The architectural millwork is almost on par with Tap Room but just a little too dark choice of wood for my taste.

Restaurants Worthy of Mention: Special mention to a new restaurant called The Ranch - a longtime xpat runs it with wife and family and is closest thing in terms of north american ranch/log house cabin ambience to the now defunct Eddies Restaurant on AC Briones. I enjoyed almost every item on the menu and many steak dinners at half the going rate. Meat is Australian cow living in CDO that is butched under the supervision of the owner. I finally found a restaurant that serves quality beef at a reasonable price. The service is lacking but that is typical and might get better in time. It is across from the Baranguay Hall Banilad - just after the last flyover. This is one of my few gem restaurant finds on this trip for the stingy at heart lusting for beef and sick with pork and chicken. Top grade Ostrich steaks is on the menu here too.

Next Subject ? Nubile Filipinas looking for a friend with benefits? There is no shortage. The economy sucks and there is no end in sight for their plight especially with the population projected to be 120 million in a few years.

Why any one would need to find a steady or get married here or settle down is beyond me. The cost of owning is not worth it. Well for those who made that mistake it will shock no one that there is probably as many short time rooms as there is hotel rooms once you exclude pension houses. But that only deducts from your cash supply. Making an income here is not that easy. I would never want to own a business here.

Cebu is probably the next growth city for HIV in Asia. I guess that might be another reason to settle down with your own harem in a rented estate. Which I may consider this October. Otherwise I will just stick with the same script and see how long I can get away with it or without my dick falling out from staph, which was a real possibility.

Alas, seeing guys in their 70's with ladies in their late teens I think I have a ways to go unless its because they did not have the same chance I have in my 40's to do the same.

Signing out for 2010 unless there is something to add/respond to. Hopefully not flames. Peace Love and Unity.

The treatment has varied from minor surgery to remove part of the infected boil and antibiotics. As well as stronger antibiotics due to it being resistant. I know about std s and study to stay current? But staph on the cock? That means the girl would have an infection in her pussy?

EDITOR'S SUGGESTION: This is interesting, but you might consider re-posting it under the Safe Sex topic in the Special Interests section of the Forum where it will benefit the Forum Members who are specifically looking for this type of information. Thanks!

Heard from chat mate. That it is just now open. That it went a major renovation. That it is "much nicer now". Go Juliana Go - It sure is the spot in the wee hours if on the prowl for a take away. Sure beats the song and dance.

Just read a web site about nite life in cebu. It gave names of girls in the clubs.

With aids? Had about five girls names for one club?

Is this a growing problem in cebu?

Should this be under health or under club hops and interactions with girls there?

Time to get my harem set up? And have my own regular girls.

In Cebu now and want to go out and play so will bar hop but the web site has me thinking of slowing down.

Or inbox me and glad to share info.

Took a girl from lone star last night. Nice and clean and fairly new.

Okay I was ready to do her without condom but she refused and said had to wear a condom. So I did find one.

Went out and bought condoms today. So now I will be using more cialis.

And then go back to my regular girls. Do check ups.

I am okay rolling the dice and get regular check ups and I like to find girls no condoms. I know its more risky but condoms are no guarantee.

I read the link you eventually posted. Seems like you have based your assumption on the views of some anonymous guy who contributed a post to some discussion forum, hardly an intelligent basis for you to post something similar on ISG. Not wanting to split hairs but the original poster has shown his ignorance by suggesting the girls have aids, when I guess he means they are HIV positive? Perhaps he is a doctor providing free tests for all the girls in his mobile laboratory and perhaps I am the most handsome man in the world. There is enough scaremongering about HIV without adding unecessary fuel to the fire, goodness me you might even put people off visiting Cebu. Hold that thought for a moment, I have heard all the girls in Cebu are HIV positive so maybe it is better if none of you guys ever visit there again. Don't worry I will try to continue with my own humanitarian work in Cebu as much as I can. :-)

Yeah that's fine with me too but there is plenty of untapped talent out there for several lifetimes - just try staying wealthy and healthy is the key.

That poster was absurd. When one considers there is 16,000 new infections in Thailand and these recent stats:

According to the National Epidemiology Center of the Department of Health, there is an increase of HIV positives this year compared to last year. Moreover, two cases a day were recorded in 2009 totalling to 835 cases last year. Thus the Philippines has an average of 150 recorded cases of HIV a month, this is the highest incidence ever recorded.

How could 5 of those be in one bar? Crazy absurd.

My emphasis: HIV is starting to make inroads in the Phil the actual rate could be higher as the vast majority of pinoys will not test until symptoms are present.

The rates while alarming for the percentage increase are relatively low when one considers the amount of bare back fornicating in the past given 30 odd years of HIV but should remind us of the present dangers of being a bareback whorist rider in Cebu or catching a few drippings here and there.

Doubt I will stop being a player on that alone. Maybe I will head into the mountains of the Phil and find a jungle lady?

Testing your ladies is not fool proof but not that expensive in the Phil whilst you test drive several hoping to add one or two clean ones into your harem. I recommend Prime Care at SM a good choice if you don't like paying the overpriced hospitals. You can see a doctor there too and get all of the appropriate tests - including a culture.

At least, once at SM waiting for your results, you can sit at French Baker and try to find some professional smiles as the place was famous for the romantically inclined. Its so so. I think the lower floor level near Ayala supermarket is better.

Here is my merit.... I have relations with one of the girls names on that list and I know for a fact that 1 month ago she was clean. She doesn't work in the bar anymore, maybe a rumour was started because she alone, and with no help from me or others, removed herself from the bar. She just worked for LD and rarely would barfine even for just barhop.

Let's end this subject because I want to hear about how good all the pussy is there right now while Im away and recouperating my injury. We need to leave room for WR stories.

Just wondering if there is anything like Manila's LA Cafe in Cebu or Davao? I am assuming not, as I've seen no mention of anything similar in either the Cebu or Davao threads. I'm no fan of Manila, so haven't seen the cafe.

However, it would seem that there is a significant lack that is just waiting for some enterprising ISG business type to introduce to these cities.

Peace out.No I base the information on many other sources of hearsay and I ask the questions based on information I get. But yes the questions and answers could go on and on. So no worry.

I am in cebu now and had been bar hopping. I am not as happy with the bars as in the past. The girls are fatter? And not as friendly but maybe it s me also because I am spoiled with about ten girlfriends now in other parts of cebu and they do spoil me.

My nurse friend is also getting fatter and I believe what she tells me. She knows I have many girls and goes with us on travels when not in school and she knows I am not going to change. So she is also getting more information, accurate or not is another question. Okay so I am now in the waterfront hotel and I met three girls sitting at a table.

Bought them some beer and had a good chat. Took the one with me over night and was really really happy with her. I gave her 2000 pesos which is twice or four times what I usually give a girl as an independent but I was impressed and she has two children. (she held my cock all night and anytime I woke up was more then willing and even willing to have other girls or guys join) that just shows good attitude.

We only had another girl join but she was willing for anything I ask.

The girl I met at sisters bar was a total user and I ignored the signs.

She drank her drinks very fast. That is the number one clue of a hustler? Diba?

Okay so I bar fine her and she wants to go drink other bar, butterfly? Across the street. And buy her friends drinks. But her friend was nice and drank slowly so take her to the room and not into any oral. My fault for taking her.

And then good boom boom and then off she goes.

Thats good she left by then I was tired of her and she was drunk.

Okay back to hunting again.

I don't write well because of my blood circulation. None to the brain.

But will tell you more of my adventure in cebu. So far its okay but I miss my harem of girls. My steady girls much better.

I heard the street name as Honkera or somthing like that. But also sure there are more places so will research and thanks again.

Going to the malls now and see what I find. But I am with my lesbian girl friend

Went out to papilion? Not sure of spelling.

I had my number one girl with me from Angeles.

Sat down and the girls ignored us at first.

Then one really nice girl sat down. She is hot and was very friendly.

Said she is in school. She was friendly to my girl and me.

Bought her a few drinks. She did want to bar fine but we did not.

I smiled at the skinniest girl in there and she just gave me the fuck off look.

Went to Pussycats and I like a few of the girls dancing. The hottest one was ignoring us and I kept smiling but got no where.

Korean guy comes in and she was off the stage and on his lap trying to be nice and get drinks from him. He rejected her and she was back on stage.

Seems a lot of fat girls in there.

I am spoiled because most my girls are under 40 kilos.

Okay so we have one girl dancing very nice in front of us. Not my body type but like her attitude and enthusiasm.

Gave her tip and we went to dimples.

My girl and I smiled at a few of the hot girls dancing. I thought a larger percentage were really nice and hot looking.

So now we get surrounded by girls. Sat two down. And bought drinks for the two. (200 pesos per drink).

Then two more come over.

My girl grabs one and puts her on her lap and starts playing with her.

Okay so more drinks for all the girls. Am I being milked or is it just all part of having fun.

So three of the girls want to go with us. Two say they will play with my girl.

We settled of course on the skinnest and youngest one.

Took her, and paid for ten drinks, 2000 pesos so she could leave with us.

Went home and we did everything and it was hot. She was hot and it was too much fun.

Part of the deal to take her from the bar was to pay her 1000 pesos.

Well I gave her 1400 so it would also cover taxi fares. Maybe too generous but I figure that is the cost of fun here in cebu?

And she was really wiling and very satisfying. I was in pain it was so good.

She wanted to leave early so why not?

Said she was going to hygiene in the morning. I had offered to take her on a day drive and trip to moalboal but she never came back.

She called my girl about 4 pm and said she would come for short time at 1500 pesos.

Now for tonight.

During the elections a lot of bars were being blackmailed into paying to stay open:(

To finish my last post. The girls invited me to stop by and see them in Roadhouse/Angelwitch. I stopped by Roadhouse about 10 pm Saturday night. I saw one of the girls (Lin Lin) on stage dancing and the bar was full. They had to move three dancers on a small table for me. I ordered a coke light and I called Lin Lin down. She sort of give me a wait look and about that time the waitress brought me a small glass of coke light. I asked her where the can was and she told me that they don't serve the cans. I looked at the bill and it was 85P:eek:

I looked back at Lin Lin and she was still dancing and another mamasan came over and told me that she could not come off stage until she finished her set:(

That was enough BS for me so I paid my 85P and left the bar.

Nice report. Don't tell anyone but Papillon and Dimples are connected. Even if you have bought someone a drink, you can slip into the other bar to take a look. I personally think these places are not managed well, but since they are still in business, what the fk do I know?

Nice series of reports Tout01 ! It was a pitty we could not meet up this hunting season for a frosty.

Very good news indeed seeing as Juliana is the number one 'meat market' in Cebu! From my understanding, the Korean owner did not secure the proper work permits and was deliquent on income tax payments. Too much of a good thing will attract unwanted attention by the powers that be making payments neccesary to stay open.

One my last visit, had a great time drinking Sam Mig Light on ice, eating tapas from the kitchen all surrounded by girls that just wanted to have fun! We danced the night away with the staff extending closing time until 7:30 am! All of us were well prepared with our cheap sunglasses on to greet the rising sun! Snapped the attached pic upon exit!

You are correct. They are splitting time between Angelwitch and Roadhouse. They were definitely the better dancers and having more fun on stage. But they had the groups seperated(cebuans - regular bargirls) so it was almost like a competition. Mama said their are more paying customers in AC but they say AC sucks to stay in, nothing to do and also hot. So they are their to make some coin.... Will go see the other group she brought in a couple days when I get back from BKK.

Gents,

I am planning my first trip to Cebu.

I have Mongered in AC before, however I really need something else apart from just bars.

Can anyone report on the Watefront Cebu City hotel?

Is it guest friendly? Is it convenient to monger amenities?

If not, can anyone suggest a similar class of hotel that suits the monger / tourist?

My budget is $50 to $100 per night.

Gents,

I am planning my first trip to Cebu.

I have Mongered in AC before, however I really need something else apart from just bars.

Can anyone report on the Watefront Cebu City hotel?

Hello there Grisoman2000, I have been in the Waterfront Hotel but, I have not stayed in it though. I only visited the hotel because I met up with 1 of my DIA (Date In Asia) contacts who happens to work there. It's a big hotel and there is a casino in it. At the casino, they have live bands playing there also.

I stayed at Parklane Hotel across Ayala Mall. I like this hotel. It's fairly new under 5 years old. It's just a short walk to Ayala Mall and you still can walk to Waterfront Hotel from Parklane hotel. It is a smaller hotel than Waterfront but, the cost is cheaper and I feel it's in a better location than Waterfront because it's closer to Ayala Mall if you like going to the mall. Waterfront Hotel is closer to IT Park though.

From my own personal experience with Parklane Hotel, it is definitely guest friendly. Most hotels in Cebu is guest friendly. One of the bargirls told me they been to Waterfront hotel and they had to show their ID. At Parklane hotel, I just walk in the lobby with my girl and straight to the elevators. Noone at the front desk would question me or the girl for her ID.

If you do decide to stay at Parklane hotel, make sure you request an even numbered room because if you get the odd numbered rooms, it will be facing the Hong Kong Plaza hotel which is under construction. I was just in Cebu last month and although they put me in a odd numbered room, the noise did not really bother me.

I got the Parklane Room over the Superior room which offers 2 x complimentary bottled water and the unlimited internet in the room. It's not wireless though. They supply a 4 feet cat5 cable in the drawer. It also offers daily newspaper and a desk for your notebook. An in room safe is provided also but, it's not large to where it will accommodate a full size laptop. I feel it's worth getting the Parklane Room over the Superior room for $10-$11 more.

Both hotels are good and fits your budget. So, either hotel is a good choice. They both offer breakfast which is included. You just need to sign and specify your room number when you're done eating. You can't go wrong with either one. I am suggesting Parklane hotel mainly because I stayed there twice and have not had any issues bringing girls over.

As far as mongering goes, the gogo bars to go to would be the ones on Mango Avenue or Gen Maxilon Avenue. Just tell the taxi driver: "Viking bar on mango" He will know. Also, you can hang around Mango Square Mall where there is several Karaoke places and Julianas disco. Alot of bar girls would go to Julianas after they finish work. But, it's not walking distance away from Waterfront or Parklane hotel though. You will need to take a taxi which is just a short taxi drive away. If you are to walk around then... IT Park would be close to Waterfront, The Pump 2 is a disco place near Waterfront and Parklane hotel. It is located near the Cebu Grand Convention Center. Infinity KTV bar is close to Parklane Hotel also. Go to Ayala Mall and check out the girls there also.

Be warned. WR likes gorgeous women with lots of energy and kinky ideas so if either of you have health issues like a shonky heart be careful when you meet him. Joke lang.

Be sure to meet up with WR who is also WB (wild bugger).

I hope if my sked permits I could join in too. One of WR's women likes 2 guys at a time - she would probably go ape shit over 4 ROFLMFAO

[QUOTE=MauiDude]I read in that website a comment that Egypt and Bounty both are open under new names.

Anyone who knows?
After International Bar Complex was raided last year, Egypt reopened under the name 'Abusur' but closed after several months. Their sister bar 'Bounty' never reopened. A third bar 'Coliseum' gave it a go but closed last month.

Here is a pic from Egypt for old times sake:

Waterfront is Cebu's most opulent hotel. Huge property with casino and shops. Great amenities including swimming pool, gym, buffet and lobby bar. Freelancers sometimes hang in the lobby. The rooms are a bit small and dated though. Located in Lahug very near most anything in the city. Unless you can get a discount, it is over your stated budget.

Actually hotels.com seems to have rooms there for pretty cheap. Superior rooms are $73, and deluxe rooms are $81 right now. Too bad I didn't notice this sooner...already booked another hotel...but what the heck, at least I'm going!

Gents,

Thanks for the hotel suggestions. I think the Parklane fits the bill.

I am looking forward to this trip to Cebu. I will go to AC for a few days and then head to Cebu. I take a monger trip every year. Last year was Bangkok, Pattaya, and AC on the one trip. I had a great time but I was a bit like goldilocks. Each place had its negatives.

Pattaya: too sleazy and girls too mercenary.

Bangkok: My kind of mongering. Like the more exclusive club option but nothing to do apart from shopping and temples (I am a long term resident of Japan and don't care much for visiting temples).

AC: fantastic girls. Loads of fun in bars. But oh dear, what a god awful shithole of a place.

So, my attention now turns to Cebu. Which I hope will offer a new experience.

Don't book through Parklanehotels website. They will charge you more. We wanted to extend our stay at Parklane Hotel for the Deluxe room. The lady at the front counter told us it will be $100/night. So, we went back online on Agoda.com and did it for cheaper price. Then, we went to the front desk with the printout voucher hehe.

When you come to Cebu stay focused on the women and night life and you won't be disappointed.

Mortman,

Don't get me wrong. I do love Bangkok. Have been there about 7 times. Just want some beach and coconut trees.

P. S: when I was in Pattaya last time, I went to a few beaches on some of the outlying islands. I advise anyone who visits Pattaya for mongering to take these days trips. Fantastic!

Try www.hoteltravel.com as I find this cheaper, was looking last week and got a cheaper rate than the others, agoda and hotels.com tend to add on extra while hioteltravel is all inclusive. Do a comparison but definitely cheaper than booking directly as G says

If you want to go the beaches then.. you'll want to go to Mactan Island where the airport is located. To go to Parklane hotel, you'll be taking a taxi going over the Marcelo Fernan Bridge into Cebu city. Parklane Hotel or Waterfront Hotel is nowhere near a beach. But, it's better to monger when you're in Cebu city vs being on Mactan Island

By the way, you may end up picking up some Korean chicks in Mactan hehe. You'll see them in Mactan Island. Hehe, it's funny when I was in Mactan and seen a Jeepney filled with Koreans in it. I should have taken a picture of that but, they were moving.

Also, if you want to exchange money in Cebu, go to Ayala Mall and go to the Xchange booth in the Ayala Terraces outside. It's on the second floor of the terraces. The rates is very good there. You can exchange money inside of Parklane Hotel but, it will be lower as most hotels will give a lower rate.

Parklane Hotel also offers in room massage. I tried it and it was terrible. I guess the girl I had wasn't that good. Since it's an in-room massage, it will cost considerably more than getting a massage outside of the hotel. The in-room massage was 800 pesos for one hour and I believe they go with Asian Express Massage. These girls wear a white uniform and I seen two of the girls in the elevator last month as I was going to the lobby.

I've been in Cebu City now for almost a week and have been spending lots of time at the Ayala Mall. I'm 45, white, look 40, not bad looking and friendly.

It is sooooo amazing to walk through the mall and have endless beautiful young girls looking at you like, "Who is THAT?!" When I spend an hour in the mall I must get at least 100 girls giving me that look. This is truly the land of the 5'0" Cebuna beauty and they are sweet and available.

I have yet to check out the bar girl scene but will soon. Staying here for one month.

I'm 46, white and from the USA. Back home I live in a humble home that is clean and comfortable, but certainly not luxurious. I have never (before now) been to Asia and have been planning a trip to Cebu for a few years and finally decided to go for it and am now writing from the Parklane Hotel. Here's what I can share so far...

I Spent 4 nights in Makati at the City Garden Hotel (the best place to stay) and then flew the hour flight south to Cebu, not knowing anyone (traveling solo). I had researched and researched and researched and had decided to stay my first night at the Kiwi Lodge because it was close to the Ayala Mall (the more modern area of Cebu City).

The taxi drive from Cebu Mactan airport into town was serious culture shock. I have been to Costa Rica and had seen the shanty lifestyle but this was on a whole different level. I expected the cab to pull out of the extreme poverty and into the more modern Ayala area but it didn't ~ it just turned onto a small side street and into the dilapidated Kiwi Lodge. Reception was basically outside under a roof and the place looked like hell. They took me up the crumbling concrete stairs to my room. It had one center ceiling light, smelled, had a nasty looking bed in the middle of the room, and felt like something out of Apocalypse Now. I stood there in shock and began to get really nervous. No fucking way I'm staying in this place, no way. If I was a 25 year old back-packing kid who wanted to party, drink and explore, ok, maybe, but I'm not. I'm 46 and require certain standards.

I got my money back and nervously got into a cab (forgot to ask for the meter to be turned on) and tried to remember a nice hotel from the months of online research and finally said, "Marriott Hotel".

With just a couple of turns we were within the very nice Ayala area and pulling into the Marriott where the security guards used mirrors on the bottom of sticks to look under the cab for bombs and took the cab drivers ID and ran a thorough check on him. After that, the gate was opened and we were allowed in. Welcome to Cebu.

Of course the Marriott was WAY over priced (almost $150 USD when I checked out, 2 room service meals and their incredible breakfast buffet). It would be nice to stay there but I just don't have the kind of cash so I booked 2 nights at the Parklane, the next step down.

During my stay at the Parklane I went searching for more modest price hotels. Looked at the Cebu Grand, the Cebu Waterfront, the Golden Prince and the Casa Escano bed and breakfast. The Cebu Grand was old, worn out and just not acceptable. The Cebu Waterfront is truly a landmark hotel but also kinda of worn out and the same price as the Parklane. I don't recommend either.

The Golden Prince has long stay suites that are acceptable and the price is right. They are nothing special and sparse, but clean and efficient. If you're going to stay there, get the one bedroom because the studio is too small. Casa Escano deserves all the praise it gets. It is comfy and I could imagine staying there a while. Keep in mind, it is a house and doesn't have a pool or really anything to do.

So ~ after all that, I decided to try and work the Parklane for a monthly rate, even though it was going to be WAY over my budget. They ended up giving me a rate of 2800 per night and I took it. Yes, that's crazy money, but I am very comfortable, have a great pool, hot tub, restaurant and a great free breakfast buffet. It's a classy joint, for sure. It's very close to the Ayala Mall and for a 1st time visit to Cebu, it makes things feel a little easier.

By the way, I got bitten by a bug in the Marriott and have had this huge bump ever since. It got so bad I almost went to the doctor, but it seems to be getting better now.

If you are still in Cebu, do try the Midtown Hotel. Go to Robinson's at Fuente Osmena, in the center of the city. Find the entrance to the hotel, and ask to see a room. You will be in the middle of action, can walk to bars, and can get a reasonable long term rate. Most of the rooms have been remodeled.

I stayed there about 2x a year for 10 years. If you call, ask for Bernadette in reservations and speak with her. Midtown Hotel, Robinsons. All the taxi drivers know where it is. ENJOY

Groovyguy, that 2800 pesos/night at Parklane hotel, is this for the Superior room or Parklane room? If it's the Superior room, that's not really a good deal. If it's the Parklane room then 2800 pesos/night is pretty good.

If you want to save money, I'd recommend the Diplomat Hotel on F. Ramos road. The hotel may not be close to any malls but, it's not that far from Robinson Mall and Rain Tree mall. I would just walk to Mango Avenue and go to the gogo bars. The walking distance did not bother me or my friends. But,if you're going to bring a girl back to the hotel then... definitely take a taxi. It will be cheap though the rate as it will only cost 37 pesos total from the gogo bars on Mango Avenue to Diplomat Hotel on F. Ramos. If they charge you 100+ pesos, they overcharged you.

It's a good deal the Diplomat hotel for $20-$30/night and is among the few hotels at this price that has an in room safe. The rooms is clean. The only issue that bothered me was that A/C was a bit loud though but, it works good and cools the entire room. Get the Superior twin room but, request a single queen size bed. There's also a mini bar to. There are other cheap hotels that don't offer a mini bar and an in room safe.

There is also a massage place outside of the Diplomat hotel. As you walk out, it will be on your left. The full body massage is only 250 pesos. They have various massages that focus on your butt/hips for 1 hr, your back for 1hr if you want these areas to be focused on. I tried the massage there and it was much better than my experience with the in room massage at Parklane hotel. On top of that, the girl who massaged me was cuter! LoL. They also have in room massages for 100 pesos more. So... if you want an in room massage it will be 350 pesos vs 250 pesos. This is still alot cheaper than what Parklane Hotel charges.

They also offer laundry service at Diplomat Hotel. The price is very reasonable to wash your shirt, shorts and pants. It's expensive to do laundry at Parklane hotel but, it's understandable as it is a nicer 4 star hotel. $60/night at Parklane hotel for 1 month would cost alot of money especially if this is before taxes is added onto the $60/night.

Wireless internet is provided but, you'll have to pay though. You have to buy the card at the front desk. The card has the login and password. If I recall,

30min = 65 pesos
1 HR = 130 pesos
3 HRs = 300 pesos

I'm not 100% correct on this but, it's pretty close.

Diplomat to me was good. Well, good enough for me anyways. Some of you may disagree as everyone has their own standards. It's nice to stay in a nice or nicer hotel but, I don't want to spend much on a hotel as I prefer to save the money and spend it on other things like at the gogo bars.

In Groovyguys case, he is already staying in Parklane so... going to a hotel like Diplomat would be a downgrade because it is a 3 star hotel and the location is not all that nice compared to Parklane. Also, for a first timer going to Cebu alone, I think you made a good choice with Parklane hotel. Yeah, it will cost you more but, for a first timer I think you want to stay at a hotel where you feel safer and is nicer.

1 month stay in Cebu is along time. You should meet up with one of the members from ISG. Also, if you meet a nice girl to hang out with, you should take her on a boat ride to Bohol which is 2 hours away from Cebu. Definitely check out the gogo bars on Mango Avenue.

Good FR, Cebu is a great palace and maybe you should try hook up with otehr ISG guys there as they can be a great source of knowledge.

Parklane is nice and the rate is OK but as someone said maybe try get a further discount as low(ish) season. I maybe there late July also if you are still around

If you can get your PM function working maybe I can pass a few more details but cant do here as ISG will ban me.

Enjoy Cebu, a good friend is there soon so try get your PM up and working and I can hook you up, as well as a few friends who live in and around the city

Have fun

it's a parklane room. i also managed to get broadband internet at no charge. they actually installed a private wireless router for me and speeds are excellent.

so far so good, enjoying my stay, finally adjusting to the excessive hardship of these people. i know this is a mongering board, but shit, anyone with any sense of kindness in their heart must feel for the plight of the pinoy.

If you take a taxi to Volvo KTV (very close to the Robinson Mall) and when you arrive walk down the right side of the street about 150 yards and you will see two massage shops. Take the second one on the end of the building. Price was 250P per hour (April 2010) and one of the best massages that I have had in the PI. Once you visit in person, get a business card, as they do outcalls. Sorry I don't remember the name:( but I sure do remember the massage:)

My budget is $50 to $100 per night.I agree with Gogobarlover! Depends on how long you are staying, but the Waterfront is too far from everything. You will spend more on taxis and WASTE time in traffic. In the last three years that I have really been traveling a lot to Cebu the traffic on the bridges is getting worst. I also read in the paper that the city wants to close the old bridge soon and rebuild it. Seems it has some major damage to the main pilings and they are worried about it collapsing:( And this being in the Philippines it may not be repaired until it collapses.

Robb,

Is the massage shop in question the K1 Spa? I visited this massage shop twice in the past week. The first time the massage was excellent, with no extras inquired about or offered. The second visit was one of the worst massages I have ever had. She took me apart at the joints and no matter how many times I told her to go softer, she would go back to beating the crap out of me. Once again no extras inquired or offered. Even if the Tug was included I would decline for fear of serious potential of injury or amputation. lol. Two different providers.

Price 250P for a 1hour 15minute body massage.

They probably give locals a better deal. I know girls who stay at boarding houses in Cebu only pay 2500 pesos a month. However, these boarding houses are very simple though and you will not get much Amenities in the room.

They also have in room massages for 100 pesos more. So... if you want an in room massage it will be 350 pesos vs 250 pesos. This is still alot cheaper than what Parklane Hotel charges.

They also offer laundry service at Diplomat Hotel. The price is very reasonable to wash your shirt, shorts and pants. It's expensive to do laundry at Parklane hotel but, it's understandable as it is a nicer 4 star hotel. $60/night at Parklane hotel for 1 month would cost alot of money especially if this is before taxes is added onto the $60/night.

Wireless internet is provided but, you'll have to pay though. You have to buy the card at the front desk. The card has the login and password. If I recall,

30min = 65 pesos
1 HR = 130 pesos
3 HRs = 300 pesos

I'm not 100% correct on this but, it's pretty close.

Diplomat to me was good. Well, good enough for me anyways. Some of you may disagree as everyone has their own standards. It's nice to stay in a nice or nicer hotel but, I don't want to spend much on a hotel as I prefer to save the money and spend it on other things like at the gogo bars.

In Groovyguys case, he is already staying in Parklane so... going to a hotel like Diplomat would be a downgrade because it is a 3 star hotel and the location is not all that nice compared to Parklane. Also, for a first timer going to Cebu alone, I think you made a good choice with Parklane hotel. Yeah, it will cost you more but, for a first timer I think you want to stay at a hotel where you feel safer and is nicer.

1 month stay in Cebu is along time. You should meet up with one of the members from ISG. Also, if you meet a nice girl to hang out with, you should take her on a boat ride to Bohol which is 2 hours away from Cebu. Definitely check out the gogo bars on Mango Avenue.
I always stay at the Diplomat hotel,but I got tired of paying the high wi-fi prices. So my girl brought over her Smart Bro wi-fi usb stick(20 pesos per hr) and it worked very well,except it slowed down a bit during evening hrs when all the filipinos hit the internet cafes.

Are you referring to the one on North Escario St? I have not stayed there myself but, the monthly rates are decent.

http://www.ilink.ph/view.php?id=1220

They probably give locals a better deal. I know girls who stay at boarding houses in Cebu only pay 2500 pesos a month. However, these boarding houses are very simple though and you will not get much Amenities in the room.That was one I found but there several other ones, I'm hoping someone has some experience of them.

Thanks

In previous post you were 45 and now 46. Was there a birthday between postings LOL.Actually it's funny you ask. Since my last post I turned 48 but then this morning was 47. After lunch I managed to get back to normal and back to 46. Hehe.

Half a dozen guys have in earlier posts already recommended the 90 min boat ride + 30 min taxi to ALona beach on the island of Panglao, Bohol. I know I will be there very soon.

Other than that, what is recommended on Mactan for a day or two...for say US 100 to 150 a night?

I've heard Moalboal and Bantayan (on or near Cebu) recommended, but neither seems to be as convenient as the very scenic boat ride to Bohol. I"ve never been to either place, but I understand you can get a taxi or bus from Cebu. Years ago, SpamHog gave specific directions.

I've gone an hour north of Cebu and found a cheap and cozy resort run by a European, but there was no sand beach.

Can anyone give a good summary of beach areas? I already have women in spades, so don't need proxemity to P4P. (But any update on Lapu-lapu Mermaid or other bars would be appreciated). X

Thank for the advice on hotel rooms.

I booked a room at the Parklane. Got it for under $65 a night (my currency isn't US dollars so this is a guess). I am looking forward to staying there.

It is my first time in Cebu. How far from the GoGos and other venues for mongering? If anyone can spare a few minutes and condense the scene into a few paragraphs I would be very appreciative. I promise to write a trip report while I am there.

Sure man.

GOGO BARS

The gogo bars is definitely not close to Parklane hotel. You will need to take a taxi. Just walk out the front entrance and the guy at the doorway will ask if you need a taxi. He works at Parklane hotel and stands by the door. He will waive a taxi for you and when a taxi pulls up, he will give you a slip of paper with info on that taxi. This slip is to file a complaint if you are not satisfied with his services. I recommend you checkout the gogo bars on mango avenue first. As you get in the taxi, just tell the driver: "Viking Bar on Mango Avenue" he will know as most taxi drivers know Viking bar on Mango. The distance is not far in a taxi but, too far to walk though. It would take less than 5 minutes to reach Mango Avenue from Parklane Hotel.

As the driver enter onto Mango Avenue (Gen Maxilom Ave.), you will see this building. http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=85220 There is Vikings Bar, BGs Bar and Erik the Red. Vikings Next Door is connected with Erik the Red.

As you walk further down, there is these bars: http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=85221 On the left is Black Hole. This gogo bar is no longer named that. It is called Hot Rods and Sisters gogo is on the right.

Across the street from these bars you will see http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=85222
On the left of Dimples (not shown) is Pussycats, Dimples, Love City and then Papillon gogo.

If you walk further down on mango towards the Caltex gas station on your right, there's a big church(Iglesia Ni Cristo ) on your left across the Caltex gas station, if you pass the gas station and turn right at the corner, you'll be on . Jacosalem St. Club Temptations is down this road to your right.
http://tomrich.sakura.ne.jp/pic/clubtemptation1.jpg

It's pretty dead though right now. I been there last month and it was slow.

There is also Lone Star bar located near Beverly Boutique Hotel. If you see the big church on mango, there is a driveway that turns at the corner of the street. This street is F. Manalo Street. This is where Beverly Boutique Hotel is on. As you keep walking down this street, you will see another road up ahead where you can turn right or left. This road is Queens Road and if you turn left, Lone Star bar will be up ahead. It has a lighted sign in yellow that says: Lone Star http://tomrich.sakura.ne.jp/pic/lonestar.jpg

*Note: If you took a taxi from Parklane Hotel to Mango Avenue, the taxi driver will normally take this route and get on Queens Road and then turn left on F. Manalo Street. You will see Beverly Boutique Hotel on your right and he will then drive straight onto Mango Avenue. You will see the building up ahead that has Vikings, BG and Erik the Red.

Another Gogo is Silver Dollar. This bar is very near the Crowne Regency Tower building on Osmena Blvd. You can't miss the Crowne Regency Tower. It is the tallest building in Cebu.

OTHER GOGOS IN CEBU

There is other bars in Cebu outisde of Mango Avenue. One of them that I went to last month is Club Arena. http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=48138The one is located near the Cebu International Port. This gogo bar is very expensive compared to most bars in Cebu. However, it is big and the women in there look good and dress classy. I would recommend it despite the high cost of the BF. There is an entrance fee of 200 pesos as you enter and another 200 pesos as you leave. They will add this to your tab when you buy your drinks.

If you head south of Osmena Blvd, it will take you to downtown Cebu. This area is more slummy and have older shops and department stores. I would advise you go there in the daytime only if you're going by yourself. There is gogo bars there but, best going there with someone since this is your first time in Cebu.

There is a few bars on N. Escario street north of Mango Avenue just a few minutes away by taxi. Stripes Gogo and Blue Angel Gogo is located there. I have not been to these bars yet.



DISCO/NIGHT CLUBS

Julianas on Mango Avenue. Alot of girls from the gogos would go to Julianas after work. It is located in Mango Square Mall. http://picasaweb.google.co.jp/tooomrich/Juliana?authkey=z-PGwVx3lv0#5255865215264943602

Sunflower near IT Park. This club is big with long tables. They have live bands in here.
http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=48145

Pump 1 near the Cebu Grand Convention Center. This club is close to Parklane Hotel. You can just walk it there. If you were to walk to Waterfront hotel, it will be before it on the left. http://tomrich.sakura.ne.jp/pic/pump1.JPG

Pump 2. There is 2 club pump clubs. Pump 2 is located at Mango Square mall on Mango. It's in the back area.

The Loft. This club is located in IT Park which is near Waterfront Hotel. It is in the corner of the Skyrise IT Building. I did not like this club. I found it boring actually

Club VUDU. This club is located at The Crossroads. It is not too far away from IT park. This club is small. My friend who went there with his girl last year, he said he didn't really like it.


MALLS

Ayala Mall is very close to Parklane Hotel. You can just walk there and within 5 minutes, you should be at Ayala. Ayala does have alot of nice eye candy walking around

SM Mall is located near the Cebu International Port. You will need to take a taxi there. Alot of young people shopping at SM Mall.

I'd say these 2 big malls you will be mainly checking out. There are other smaller malls also. But, Ayala and SM are the 2 largest in Cebu.

If you mean somewhere in metro Cebu city then head to the east side of Mactan Island. Tambuli, Maribago Bluewater, Blue Reef and Marigondon resorts are all around fifity dollars US give or take. But plan on B.Y.O.B unless you have Korean women in your sights.

Just to add:
I've been to a few of the bars downtown and in general, the ladies are usually older and 'meatier", not what I call eye candy.
But the drinks are cheaper so after having a few more, maybe they could look like eye candy.
Also, the downtown places cater more to the locals than to foreigners.

I haven't been to any of the bars in downtown myself and I don't really care to go to any of those. I just go there during the day just to shop at the department stores and the outside stands. I'm content to just going to the gogo bars on Mango Avenue.

By the way, I haven't bothered to check out Club Harem gogo in Mandaue. They have young ones there but, the area where it's located is quite ghetto from the outside. Anyone had any recent experience from this bar?

Thanks for that mate. Really nice detail and good information. No doubt will play an important role on my cherry trip to Cebu.

As a conversation/forum starter, I would like to pose a question to other mongers who visit the Philippines. Going to gogos is a "slamdunk" and no skill is needed at all to pick these girls. Admittedly choosing the right girl is an art form. Anyway, back to my question. Do any of you guys have a MO or a technique for picking up regular girls in the Malls. Care you share your stories/advice?

I was very successful by using DIA but when i was strolling the mall there were soo many available young girls. I would suggest just go there and hang out, talk with some girls working there or sit and eat lunch and they will find you. Within a short time you will have a girl ask you, where you from sir? You married sir? Where you stay sir? How long you be here sir?

............. Anyway, back to my question. Do any of you guys have a MO or a technique for picking up regular girls in the Malls. Care you share your stories/advice?

There is a whole thread here about this G-man.
Too many variables in the strategy for there ever to be an MO or technique.
The best strategy is to let them pick up you. Watch for the eye-contact, smiles, or somebody sitting down close to you in a coffee shop when there are many other tables available.
But..... be careful who you approach. There are women who don't like foreigners who go to malls to pick up women so if you try to hit up one of them in any sort of crude or direct way you may well find yourself reported to security and kicked out of the mall (as has happened to one guy I know who naively thought all women in the malls were available).

Fantastic report Gogobarlover!

As for the malls. I think that Wicked Roger and Greg London (I hope I am right with the names) have posted quite a few reports on their mall techniques. A good student. Studying their posts. And the posts of others. Can find some decent technical approaches to the game! I think in some ways it sounds a lot like the scene in South Korea (and nothing like it in a LOT of other ways). If a man is bold and approaches a girl who shows some interest. Then he's halfway to where he wants to be.

I guess I will know for sure when I hit Cebu in August!

Grim and GoGo.

Be warned. WR likes gorgeous women with lots of energy and kinky ideas so if either of you have health issues like a shonky heart be careful when you meet him. Joke lang.

Be sure to meet up with WR who is also WB (wild bugger).

I hope if my sked permits I could join in too. One of WR's women likes 2 guys at a time - she would probably go ape shit over 4 ROFLMFAO

mmmm....an interesting proposition and one I will definitely ask her about as she told me finds a 3some "very hot" She may just say "thats hotter" :D I hope so LOL

But take the energy pills (as RK suggests) as she has a very high appetite after a good spanking :)

Maybe I should change my handle RK...sort of a good descriptive one :D

Cebu is a unique place. I have spent a many of days trolling the malls in Cebu. If you have no game, your ok. If you have a little game, your awesome. If you have a lot of game, you will find yourself in the pornstar category.

What to say?????? Hello would be a great start.. Just be cautious that some are very shy. And some will come right up to you at Friday's while your eating and ask ifyou have a gf and want to know if you want to go with them.

I will break down and share one example since were on the subject.... I once went into the swimsuit shop and was mingling around. A pretty young thing, shyly came and asked me if I needed any help. I shyly spoke back that I had a new gf and wanted to buy her a swimsuit, but didn't know the size. But I told her she was the same size and asked if it was ok to try one on for me. Of course she really got shy, and I played it.... (If you want my exact quotes NO, but come on - this shit is easy) This girl was hot and she was in a bilkini suit I picked out for my NOT GF.... Then I told her I didnt have a gf, and I wanted to buy it for her and she refused, good girl. A number and a plan for a date was had. It took me two dates, I know, but Im ok to play a girl as I live in the Phils and I'm not desperate. And this giirl was fine. Second date, she didn't drink and watched me get in the mood over sml's and she was in my hotel telling me after 3 pops she loved me. Great success but the WR would have had this girl trained a 3 holer in stockings after 3 pops.....

I'm 38, I know a little younger, but my friends are all older and have the same success, so they think. If I ever hear another report that guys have trouble in a mall in Cebu, they are gay.... My buddy and I once seen a guy who had scabs and nasty shit all over him meet a girl in ayala mall. We both looked at each other and said, You have to be fucking kidding me and I hope I never come across a girl that he has been with. It appeared to be a first date and she didnt stay, but later in the day we seen him leaving with an ok average girl. Two points here, be careful and if a guy who is obviously diseased can pick up girls here then so should you.

So many stories, and so many girls....

These are two small beach islands off the north coast of Cebu island. You can get there by bus (about 4 hours drive) and then ferry (the bus drops you at the ferry terminal). They are both pleasant enough tropical islands without being really outstanding. They are both quiet places definitely Bring Your Own Babe type places with maybe 20 or so places to stay in each 1000-3000 P.

The sand/beach front is more white sand picturesque on Malapascua. they are fine if you have a girl in Cebu and don't want to fly anywhere. if you are prepared to fly then I prefer Palawan, hanging out in Puerto Princesa and day trips to the outstandingly beautiful small islets in Honda bay

So many stories, and so many girls....

Personally I find Mall hunting less productive than Rooster has described. A few observations for newbies.

In Cebu there are two large High end malls in the central area:

Ayala and SM Mall

These are where the high end shoppers, window shoppers and most foreigners come. They therefore attract most of the girls who are specifically hunting for foreigners - and there are quite a few of them. maybe it's not so easy to distinguish these girls from the shoppers but if a girl is aimlessly wondering around or leaning on the balcony playing with her mobile its a pretty sure sign If she is carrying some shopping bags and walking around purposefully she is probably a well off Filipina (or more likely has a well off bf) and is probably not available.). The less "battle hardened" girls are a little shy so will typically wait for you to say something or make the first move rather than give you the come hither smile which you might get from the more high mileage girls.

Besides the Mall rats there are the shop employees who may also be open. Typically they are more the dreaming of a foreign husband types, though many would be up for some action on their day off . they will tend to earn 3000-6000 P a month so an extra 500/1000 comes in very handy.

Away from Ayala and SM there is Gaissano in Mactan and the relatively old and smallish Robinson. Robinson has a fair few low end girls (many on drugs and looking like they need a good wash) hanging around outside and inside there will typically be a few often rather experienced /high mileage girls hanging around.

Another place maybe worth a visit is Elizabeth Mall (E Mall). The shops there are more mass market and it attracts loads of students and younger shoppers and relatively few foreigners, so you dont get the girls specifically hunting foreigners that you would get in Ayala/SM, however if you do get lucky the price expectations may be lower as the Ayala/SM girls are targeting the type of guys who stay in the Marriot.

I spent 2 days on Malapascua Island on my first trip to the Phils in 2003. If you have additional interest, I can give more details in a PM plus pics if you PM your email.

It is REALLY laid-back there. But the view of the milky-way at night is breath taking.

I was on Alona beach in 2006 so I can comment on that too.

I'm Chinese-American planning to visit Cebu later this year. Do you find many Asian foreigners are also malling? Would you recommend a different approach for Asian guys at Ayala Mall?

I ask this because, for Filipinas looking for a potential overseas husband, many of them think of middle aged to older white dudes.

I know there are lots of Korean dudes in Cebu. I'm not sure if they're exclusively hitting the clubs or if they're also at the malls.

I have written notes here before about malls as hunting grounds, and I don't think anyone should be deluded into thinking that you will always get a pick-up. If you go to the mall with a mind-set that it is a sure thing that you will get a pick-up then you may be in for a disappointment. I am not sure if you are looking for a short-time friend or seriously looking for a longer-term prospect.

Whatever it is, you MUST be laid-back and patient about it. The impatient guys with the "deer-in-the-headlight" look who expect to be knocked over in the rush by girls desperate for you stand out like ..well... deers in the headlight. I can sit with a coffee and watch these guys walk past with a look of desperation in their eyes as they search high and lo for someone to hit on.

You have to take it slow and watch out for the opportunity when it comes along. You could be there in the mall when the FL for you is not, and remember that not all girls are FLs.

I have been to Ayala and had a prospect within 5 minutes of walking in. On probably 10 other occasions I have been there for a few hours and nothing has happened. That's cool for me. I just try again next time or later.

It is NOT like going into a bar. You have to be a little bit discreet about it. Some girls will want to disappear as quickly as possible with you once you are hooked up, as they will not want others to see them with the foreigner who has been prowling around the mall on his own for ages.
Some of them will see you as a trophy and want to show you off, but they are very much a minority.

Thanks, I'll probably end up at Alona beach again. Nevertheless, I'll do some research on Malapascua Isle. I think the Spamhog recommended this place a few years ago. I think it would be a long bus ride to get there. Do you remember? X


I spent 2 days on Malapascua Island on my first trip to the Phils in 2003. If you have additional interest, I can give more details in a PM plus pics if you PM your email.

It is REALLY laid-back there. But the view of the milky-way at night is breath taking.

I was on Alona beach in 2006 so I can comment on that too.

2400 reports!!! Holy Cow!!! It's great to give back to such a senior member.

I was at Ayala Mall during two weeks in May and saw more horny gringos wandering around looking for pick ups then interested girls. Looking at the hopeful guys with no game sitting alone outside Bos every day was depressing. IMHO Ayala was much better before the remodeling in that there was a more or less defined pickup area around the coffee shops and Starbucks.

I would advise against coming to Cebu thinking that one will be getting lucky in the malls. Easier just to do the DIA thing. I would say that most of the guys you see in malls walking around with girls didnt pick them up there, but had a prior meeting arranged.

Heh, I agree with what David_33 just said here as well as what Red Kilt said earlier. I think some foreigners feel they can just easily pickup girls at the malls like as though a majority of them are desperate and willing to go with you because you have money. Don't expect most of the girls to just be throwing themselves at you like you're some famous celebrity. In most cases, that won't happen. However, if you establish eye contact and she smiles and starts talking to her, there's a good chance she will give you her number or hang out with you. Don't be some desparate guy on a mission to pickup a girl at the mall. When I go to the mall with my friend(s), we go there to eat, shop around, hangout at a spot and talk story.

I as well as my friends meet girls from DIA (Date In Asia). We would then take them to Ayala mall to eat, watch movies or just walk around. I wouldn't focus too much attention trying to pickup girls at the malls. It's good to go to Ayala Mall or other malls to see chicks there but, I wouldn't focus primarily on that alone to hookup with someone. What I like about the DIA thing is that you have establish communication among the girl(s) before meeting them in person. When the day comes and you arrive in Cebu, it can be exciting to meet that person whom you been chatting with, emailing and talking to for the past few weeks/months. I would advise you try Date In Asia. Create a login/password, You don't need to put your real name and upload a photo of yourself. Put a brief description on your profile. There is a high - very high chance of you meeting someone in Cebu. But please, don't come off being all horny/perverted on them behind the computer. The girls have enough of those types already.

Before I meet them though, I would hit a gogo bar and get my bang on. I want to get laid right away period. I feel it's quick and less drama. I say less drama because in most cases, you BF them, bang them and they leave. Yah, some guys will say that if they pickup a girl at a mall, it's cheaper and feel: "Why should I spend at a bar when I can just pickup girls at the mall?" Well, this can be true and if you have game to pickup girls at the mall easily then... by all means go ahead. However, you may have one that is not willing to do the deed with you. Or, not right away. If you're in Cebu for a short period like me, I don't focus on that too much. Plus, the prices of the gogo bars in Cebu I feel is not that much. If you compare it to what you may pay where you come from, you'd spend ALOT more. So...a 1700 pesos, 2000, 3000 pesos BF is minor. I do both, I go see girls at gogo bars at night and I spend my daytime activities with my chatmate I met from DIA.

One thing I must add also and this has probably been mentioned before, don't give a girl high hopes or lead them on to where she looks at you as a potential BF or husband if you're only with her to get some play. If you're only with her to get play, then make it known to her upfront about it. But, not in a blatant perverted manner though. LoL. Some girls out there don't mind play to earn some pesos. Alot of pinays don't have jobs or going to school because they have no money. They're bored and don't do much but stay home. So, they don't have much to lose by seeing a foreign man. Meeting a nice filipina will make the trip more exciting. She can be your tour guide and show you around Cebu.

One last thing, once in a great while you'll get overcharged on the taxi fares. This is likely to happen eventually. This has happened to me and others as well. But, don't make a scene or start an argument. The odds are against you. You are on their turf. I just pay the guy. It's not something that happens all the time as most of the taxi drivers in Cebu are honest and 90%+ of the time, they'll turn on their meters.

I also think its a good idea to hunt with a friend along. Last trip I was alone most of the time. When I did get together and hang out with another forum member, things went much better. I think that a guy walking around a mall alone might unknowingly send out desperation vibes.

I'm Chinese-American planning to visit Cebu later this year. Do you find many Asian foreigners are also malling? Would you recommend a different approach for Asian guys at Ayala Mall?

I ask this because, for Filipinas looking for a potential overseas husband, many of them think of middle aged to older white dudes.

I know there are lots of Korean dudes in Cebu. I'm not sure if they're exclusively hitting the clubs or if they're also at the malls.


From what I've seen for myself, most pinoys will go for the younger (20's) to middle age whites first before going for the asian guys. To them it's a numbers game. They know that it's less likely the asian guy will be attach long term to them as they know they are ONLY there for p4P. The likelyhood is nearly zero for attachments. If the pinoy is strictly in it for the $, then everyone is fair game to them (white , black or asian--as it's business and not personal). Of course this is from what I've seen and heard from asian friends so strictly IMO.

I rented a car and drove because there were 4 of us. My first time driving in a foreign country. As I remember it was a LONG trip up to Maya at the north end of the island. My best recollection is 3+ hours to Bogo then another 45 minutes to Maya on a dirt road. Then we rented a small boat to get to Malapascua. But it was a real experience for me so I didn't mind the drive.

Since I have been to both, I can say that logistically, Alona Beach is the clear winner. The scuba diving was better at Alona too.

Xman, the bus ride to Malapascua from Cebu is only about 2 hrs, you can go to CITILINK near the E Mall. Cheap, like P200..... Was just down there a week ago fishing but I drive there. There is some action there, a few unattached ladies, but mostly it is a tourist diver type of place. Also as I cautioned before, beware of the tranny's, lots of Byotes for some reason.

There is a disco that is only open on Saturday nites, I think "Parita's" or something, just ask around, they'll tell you. you might meet a prospect or two.

I usually stay at Quo Vadis, nice pool.

I was going to fly directly into Cebu and stay for a week with a gf there. I'm planning on visiting "a family friend" for a few days in "Manila", but I'm actually going to fly directly to Clark for about 4-5 days. My questions are:

Are the Local Girls allowed to greet you at the gate in the airport?

How often are flights coming into the airport in Cebu?

Here's my idea, I was going to fly back to Cebu a couple days early and go to a few mongering spots. I'm sure she'll want to pick me up from the airport, so I wanted to get a taxi back to the airport an hour or so before I "arrive back in Cebu" and just walk out of the airport to greet her. That's the easiest way to do it, but I guess airport policies have to fall in line with my ideas.

The biggest problem is that she'll want to meet me at the airport.

How successful are you all at all of a sudden calling from the airport saying that you arrived on an earlier flight? Is that believable?

How easy is it to disguise our actual flights from gf's?

my first trip to cebu this week after recommendations from wr and others.

first up let me say that i was expecting something a little different, not sure what, but i have to say my immediate reactions were what a fucking dump this place is. now i've been here a couple of days its a little less a dump but i never enjoy seeing ten year old girls sleeping on the streets smelling of piss.....

so i'm at the mariott with no hot water but its great for the ayala mall. i have seen these people that look like they dropped out of society 20 years ago preying on young girls the past few days.....its pretty horrifying the techniques i have seen.

me, i've been in the bookshop, eaten alone and to the pharmacy and in each occasion has made good eye contact and smiles with some lovely lady, which if i had been bothered to follow up could have presented something.

but this is my research trip - there are some stunners here - and i've been happy to pick up girls from bars for two nights.

the first from sisters was a lovely dark spinner who after one ld had me sucking her tits in the bar and her hand in my pants pretty quickly......i think the bf was around 2k, to be honest i cant remember. the only downside, which she informed me of later, was that it was time of the month.....now i'm not one for being squeamish but the blood stained towel that i accidentally used the following morning was not pleasant! we have a good time, she attacked me in the cab with her tongue and i thought she was going to rape me :) night 1, ok.

on monday i checked out all the bars and they were pretty much all empty and full of dogs apart from sisters and the period girl.

last night i checked about a few of the viking bars again as i enjoyed a quiet drink at red erics on mon.

i had a call from my wife so jumped out into the street to take it and be harrassed by multiple beggars. i did see a beautiful bargirl go into vikings and she gave me a nice smile.

so i went into vikings and had a few drinks, the most ugly desperate girl came and sat with me, always the way. but i was also joined by the forementioned bargirl. 20, a student by day, bargirl by night. i dumped ms desperate - 34 and a pussy the size of the channel tunnel and went after miss oh my god my cock is going to bust out of my pants!

she was stunning, had a body to die for and a lovely personality.

we drank all night, played pool and i was actually going to go home without as i did not expect i could bf her....when i asked her she did say i could but it was really expensive and i might want to take another girl. living in dubai, i can't say that 3000php is expensive and my wallet was out pretty much immediately. we left and took the "pleasant" walk to julianas which i not ever subject a girl to again and partied a little. it turned into a lot and we left at 5am. we got on really well in the bar and club but i cant say she was all over me so i was starting to worry that it was going to be a starfish.

however, what followed was one of the best bbbjs i have had. it was so good that despite the copious amounts of drink i was ready to blow in a couple of minutes. i of course warned her but she carried on anyway and a cim followed. i lent her my mouthwash as she ran to the bathroom!

being 41 and pissed i struggled to get it back up for a while during which time we talked, i felt her exquisite body; and eventually got it on for round two. her kissing was wonderful, daty well received and her tiny juicy pussy was very sweet. the moment got the better of me for a while and i slipped in a few times and then made the mad dash for the condom, which dampened my enthusiasm for some time. eventualy we got it back on and it was all over with cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, mish tried. she pretty much did the splits during mish which was fantastic for a good shove.

we woke at about 10am, and i said she could leave as i needed sleep, gave her a decent sized tip as she was so cute.

tonight i have a proper massage until 10 and then out again on the prowl......i have a blossoms/tagged contact to try out.

Hi

I am thinking of going to Cebu shortly and have prowled through most of the posts here. Thank you all very much for insightful tips and comments. This will be my first trip to Phils.

About me:

I am tall, fit and quite good looking. I can turn heads in most countries even though I am no spring chicken anymore. I travel mostly to EE countries for skirt chasing and have game enough to pick up girls in their 20's there. I only do p4p when I am really up against it, but from what I have read here that will not be a problem.

So my question. Threesomes. I have had some fantastic threesomes in Brazil and even a few in EE with no money changing hands what so ever. What are the odds of that in Cebu? My impression of phil girls is that they are a bit on the conservative side sexually and not so open or understanding to experimentation.

Any elaboration or experiences on this subject would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Barfines there were 1700 last I remember, was she some type of special barfine girl there? Is that why she recommended taking another girl from there or another bar?

Thanks. I think that in Cebu the waitresses are less numerous and they don't make it easy like in Angeles to take them out. I wanted to take a waitress out of a bar in Burgos/Makati and was told she couldn't be barfined.

Let's take a reality check here. I think people who have not been to the Phils don't appreciate quite how poor a country it is.

The GDP/head in Phils is about $3,500
compared with $35,000 - 45,000 in US /Western Europe/Oz

For comparison the figure for Eastern Europe is around $20,000 and Brazil is around $10,000, Thailand $8,000

Phils is at around the same level as India, Mongolia, Vietnam, Congo, Honduras

The majority of your probable target group of young sexy girls will be trying to make ends meet and look good on $5-6 per day. Are you really so hard up that you begrudge giving a girl $12 for 3 or 4 hours of her time and 2 or 3 rounds???

If you are looking to avoid the in my view overpriced commercial sex scene of say 2000-4000P a go then I sympathise, if you are looking for a more "real" experience with much higher quality girls than the bar girls then I completely sympathise. If you are trying to stiff a college girl trying to find a way to pay her boarding house rent or a months college fees, so that you can preen your ego, then I am not impressed.

As to threesomes I think if you are prepared to "grease the wheels" with a small cash gift then it's very pretty easy in Cebu. In my experience about 50% of the girls willing to bed you can be talked into it and the girls i am seeing today are exceptionally pretty well spoken perfect body 21 year old types.

Cebu's airport is the second busiest in Philippines with flights arriving daily from South Korea, Japan, HK, Malaysia, etc. It is also a domestic hub for Cebu Pacific Airlines so there is always activity day and night.

As far as arrivals go, security keeps the crowd at bay similar to NAIA. Unless the girl knows the guards, people waiting for their loved ones must stand across the street behind a barrier fence.

If you want to go through all the rigamarole, you can always meet at the Waterfront hotel and casino across the street from the airport.

Further to my last post, I thought the following incident might throw some light on how some of the local guys operate.

I was taking my 2 college girls plus one of their friends as photographer/videographer. A further of their friends is a bit chubby/plain so we lent her a bikini to go and swim in the pool. Whilst there it turns out that she started to get chatted up by a couple of local older guys staying in a couple of rooms down the corridor. Anyhow it turns out that they made some wildly implausible claims about one of them being the Mayor of Davao, being willing to finance her through college blah blah blah. These claims were marginally supported in the girls mind by handing over a cell phone. She then slept with him that night however he wanted her to try to arrange my 2 cuties to join them which they wouldn't do. It then got a bit nasty they said if she didnt give them the phone back they would say that my college girls had stolen something whilst they were at the pool and they would get into big trouble, to save her friends the hassle she returned the phone. The net result is that they left her with 100P.

Actually these guys were taking a big risk as this girl's Dad is a police officer. Not just any police officer though but one whose job involves extra judicial executions. Apparently when the jails get a bit too full they pretend some druggies have "escaped" take them to some waste ground and shoot them. Luckily for these guys her Dad left her mum a few years ago but she still knows plenty of police guys.

Greg London mentioned earlier about how some people don't know how poor Philippines is. That's right! Some people don't know until they get to see Philippines in the flesh. Majority of us here monger in different countries to get some play. There are those who look down on PI because it's a poor country and that it's dirty. Most have a tendency to belittle the country because of how poor it is. But, the people there are nice and fun to be with. It's a culture shock to people who have not experienced the Philippines.

What I'm trying to say is just treat them nice and with respect. They are human beings just like us. We're no better than them simply because we come from a cleaner wealthier country. I know it upsets us when a taxi driver overcharges us, beggars on the streets begging us for money and girls we sleep with asking for a tip. But, realize that if we were in their situation, we probably would be desperate ourselves.

Actually I subscribe to all the reasons you are giving above. But there is a big BUT. I am no cheap charlie and I realize that young filipinas wont do a threesome with me only for the hell of it. Still I want them to do it at least partly becasue they think it would be fun.

So rest assured I will remunerate them, but preferably after the deed is done.

I plan to write a full report on the subject and also add a few tips on how to score threesomes generally as I have some experience in that challenging field.

I think that is the right attitude. The best experience will be with the girls who actually don't ask for money at all though they will certainly be hoping/expecting it. Once the girls have had experience with a few Western guys who have acted like God's gift and just given them 20 P for a jeep home they start to realise that they have to clarify things up front, but the low mileage ones will be too shy to do this.

It's really not so difficult here in the Phils , though admittedly more difficult for the guys coming for a short holiday. This morning one of my girls was trying to talk me into buying some icecream and inviting a big busted 18 year old we know around so that she and her college mate could lick icecream from the 18 year olds boobs before I fucked all three of them. I may do that tomorrow, I'm trying to lose weight so don't want to eat ice cream too often. Meanwhile I've just been messaged by a 19 year old on DIA who has volunteered to bring her 19 year old friend around for some fun at 5pm, My college girls finish class then so who knows how many girls will end up here. Usually such a direct offer from a new DIA contact is a bit fishy but she seemed quite legit so may actually turn up. I know al this sounds a bit surreal to those who haven't been to the Phils or similar places - but that kind of stuff just happens here.

This was my first trip to Cebu, so I thought I'd give a quick report. I couldn't help but go, Cebu Pacific had round trip tickets from Angeles on sale for an unbelievable 1500 pesos. So keep watching for their sales.

I booked my stay online at The Beverly Boutique Business Hotel. Thanks to others in the Cebu forum for recommending this one. It's a very good value. It's near many of the bars and malls. Everyone still calls it Eddie's, by the way, if the cab driver doesn't know where you want to go. I especially like the fact that you can leave the Aircon on in your room when you leave the hotel. My one negative was the lack of an in-room safe.

The favorite bar for me was Lone Star, founded by a Texan but now owned by an Aussie. But I was not too fond of walking the area alone. There are lots of kids begging in groups quickly surrounding you , so walk fast. It's best to go with a group. Erik The Red was a nice bar with good looking, friendly girls. Evidently all the group of bars in that building have the same owner and are pretty much the same.

The mall scene is also worth a look. I went to the SM and Ayala malls. Very nice but watch out for pickpockets. One man I met had his ipad, iphone and money stolen while sitting at a coffee shop at Ayala. Cabs are plentiful and cheap but make sure the driver resets the meter before you go an don't go with drivers who want to negotiate an off the meter rate. Make them use the meter.

Very nice city. Can't wait to get back.

This sounds like an interesting story. Can you elaborate?

The only thing I've had stolen at Ayala was about six hours of celibacy.

When I was younger,tall and goodlooking I wondered why I never thought of traveling to the Philippines? The main reason was..I was getting all the pussy I needed in my home country!!! I had no need travel 8k miles and spend 3k on a monger hunt in a 3rd world country. These guys that are a so called superstar in their own country just KNOW the lil filipinas will be all over them when they arrive in the Phils right? I see lots cute filipinas here in U.S. that would be a nice catch for a younger guy her age if she desired that,no need for travel.Im 52ys and have kept myself in decent shape,BUT most women my age have not and are very bitter towards men to boot!!!! No THANKS!!!
Thats why I choose to retire in the Phils one day soon.

My ex wife mockingly asked me why I now have a GF 18 years my junior - I told her "Because I can" I then asked why her new husband is 9 years older than me. I will also retire to Phil one day soon "Because I can" and without the bitter disappointment from a (or any) western women that make it their mission to highlight their mate's inadequacies. "Inadequacies" which seem highly prized amongst beautiful and elegant pinays.

I know what you are saying about having a threesome where the girls are into it and want to have fun. Yea giving them 1000p afterwards is just normal. But it is nice to have the ones who just want to hang out to have fun.

Also PI is a dirt poor country. Period! But as said the people are as human as the rest of us and deserving of our repect. But, it does enable us to act like Donald Trump, or Soccer or football players. And as they never seem to have a problem in finding young girls to hang around. We, can have the same life style in PI as they have in London, Paris, New York and such. Trust me those rich guys are buying dresses, phones, laptops, jewlery and lots of other trinkets, The fact is PUSSY ain't free, You will pay one way or another. So, we can live thier lifstyle in PI.

And I do like sex where it is fun and what they also want. Threesomes. for me, is just like swinging. Two boys and a girl. Two girls and a boy. An orgy with lots of people. Man is it cool to be in a room full of people having the kind of sex they want. The womening who are swinging are not there for the money. But here in the states where I am at now. The girls are in thier 40's and 50's. Their minds are into it. But, the body's just do not look like a 20 year old. Our's either. So, To be at a swing party where the girls are 20's or 30's and who cares with the guys. Would be fantastick. But, I can not afford that here. And do not run in them crowds. But, in PI we can afford that and run in them crowds. And the girls want to be there. They might not want to fuck you. But you can watch them hunt and compete naked and lay the game they want. Girl or boy.

I think this is the search for the semi-pro or the hunt at the mall for the one that wants to try something new. They of course want to eat good, load for the phone. Good bed to sleep in, Taxi money to go home with. And if you have been to PI then you know they will want the tolet paper rolls you are not using from the hotel. But they are there for the experince and not the 1000p. And we as decent men give it to them not as payment, But just because you have to pay for it one way or another. And they have given us memorys that we will have to our graves. So, pay your debts.

But, I also have fun with the P4P, It does in the long run cost less. And many times is less trouble and just as fullfilling sexually. But, P4P threesomes are just for show. And 2/3 of the time it ain't even a good show. I was in my 40"s when I saw my first paid for threesome where the girls were having fun. And that was in Costa Rica not here in the states. Here I am a construction worker with two kids to support. In PI I am a prince.

Happy hunting guys RED

I think that is the right attitude. The best experience will be with the girls who actually don't ask for money at all though they will certainly be hoping/expecting it. Once the girls have had experience with a few Western guys who have acted like God's gift and just given them 20 P for a jeep home they start to realise that they have to clarify things up front, but the low mileage ones will be too shy to do this.

It's really not so difficult here in the Phils , though admittedly more difficult for the guys coming for a short holiday. This morning one of my girls was trying to talk me into buying some icecream and inviting a big busted 18 year old we know around so that she and her college mate could lick icecream from the 18 year olds boobs before I fucked all three of them. I may do that tomorrow, I'm trying to lose weight so don't want to eat ice cream too often. Meanwhile I've just been messaged by a 19 year old on DIA who has volunteered to bring her 19 year old friend around for some fun at 5pm, My college girls finish class then so who knows how many girls will end up here. Usually such a direct offer from a new DIA contact is a bit fishy but she seemed quite legit so may actually turn up. I know al this sounds a bit surreal to those who haven't been to the Phils or similar places - but that kind of stuff just happens here.

Well the two 19 year olds did show up. Actually I had just finished a session with my college girl so they were a bit surprised to find me with a naked girl in the room. Filipinas are pretty aware of social class so they were calling her Miss even though she is just a couple of years older than them. She tried to make them comfortable and said she would go for a smoke and a chat with one of her friends in the roof top pool. It turned out that one of them was 3 months pregnant - she claimed not to be and just a little chubby, but she was obviously at least 3 months gone. They are poor girls and the pregnant one had a nice tight body and firm milky boobs though a rather weather beaten face. The other had a rather cute face but the body was looser than a 19 year olds should be. Both had a great attitude and after 30 seconds of protesting that they were shy girls had stripped off and proceeded to give me a very enthusiastic double cock sucking. I did the pregnant one whilst her GF sucked her boobs but thought id give the second one a pass given my previous exertions. I then took them up to the pool for a swim and photo session with the other girls.

The pregnant one had apparently tried to commit suicide yesterday by trying to jump off a cliff when her BF who had apparently contrived to get a second girl pregnant more or less ant the same time decided to marry the other girl.

If anyone wants to try these two I can pass on their details. They seem like nice enthusiastic girls even if no more than average looking. \they didnt ask for money but of course i gave them a modest amount.

After these girls had gone my other college girl showed up and we decided to have a pizza party in my room. They invited along a lesbian fellow student and my now 8 month nursing student acted as DJ and photographer. I have a decent music set up ( a 2.1 computer speakers with a decent amount of base (costs about 1800P here) and my laptops/ipod. I've asked the girls what music they like to dance to in the past and downloaded that so I've got a decent collection of danceable modern stuff as well as the old stuff I prefer. If you are looking to create a party atmosphere where the girls are texting you to come around because they have fun rather than simply to earn money this kind of thing is important. pretty soon the girls were down to their bras and panties and bumping and grinding. After the pizza had been consumed there was some discussion and it was concluded that the lesbian wanted to be initiated into the "gang" and would therefore take cock plus do alot of pussy licking/getting licked. They then disappeared into the CR to get her shaved. I have to report there is something VERY erotic about a foursome with three 21 year old girls especially if 2 of them are seriously beautiful and the other isn't bad and all the girls are seriously into lesbian action.

Last night's girls left about 1am. They are generally not allowed to stay out all night due to parental pressure (at least that's their story.) Actually about 30 mins later the lesbian girl texted me to ask whether it was OK for her to stay the night as she has problems with her mum but unfortunately the SUN network was down so I couldn't text her back for a couple of hours so i spent the night on my own.

About 9 am I was awoken my my big boobed 18 year old (BB18) friend who said that she wanted to come around to apologize to my college girls because they had been astonished when she had uploaded naughty pics of them all to her Facebook. Girls from good families /colleges need to be concerned about what kind of pics get circulated on Facebook for obvious reasons, whereas poorer high school girls from the cities tend to be rather unconcerned what pics get around. I guess she also wanted to make sure she didn't get left out of any fun action.

I said they were both very angry but that she could make amends by licking College Girl 1's CG1's pussy and boobs. She said that she wasnt a lesbian and would only lick the boobs. About 30 mins later CG1 turned up to collect her laptop which i have paid to retrieve from the pawn shop and put Windows 7 on. She had the Lesbian Friend (LF) in tow. CG1 quickly agreed to the suggested punishment as long as she was also allowed to lick BB18's boobs. LF volunteered to be the photographer, but then I got concerned that she would feel left out so suggested that she strip off and start licking BB18's other boob whilst I took over photographic duties. All this got rather erotic so I decided to pull down BB18's panties and get my cock inside her whilst the girls looked after her boobs. CG1's bottom looked rather tempting too so I decided to pull off her panties and give her a licking at the same time. Sadly we ran out of photographers at that point so there is no photographic evidence of that stage in proceedings. After I had cum inside BB18, I explained to LF that I was really not so expert at licking pussy so would she mind demonstrating her technique to me on CG1 whilst I kissed CG1 (freeing BB18 to take some pics). Actually I find that real lesbians are much better at pussy licking certainly than me and I suspect better than most guys and she was able to get CG1 to come relatively easily.

Soon after CG1 and LF said they had to go as they were late for classes and would stop by this evening. Pregnant nurse (PN) then showed up with a text from an ISG member that I have been attempting to help out of a jam. I then dispatched PN and BB18 on a mission to try and find what ISGM needed, leaving me alone wondering is this really happening or am I going to wake up soon and find it's all a dream.

Only in the Philippines.

PS We all have our own different styles of doing things and what we are looking for but one thing I find VERY useful is to have a second laptop (in my case a small netbook) as well as your main laptop. This considerably increases the attraction of hanging around or visiting you (as does staying in a place with a pool and wifi and having a few cheap but sexy bikinis and having a decent music collection plus speakers.)

An American comedian said women will say anything to win an argument regardless of future ramifications.

He told his girlfriend that he did not like taking out the trash and she shot back "I don't like that you are a momma's boy and have a small dick."

I can't really name any restaurants, but just wanted to comment in regards to food. I go there and rarely eat the local Filipino food. I eat at other ethnic restaurants a lot of times at the malls or wherever. The local food may not be to most's taste here, but you can find plenty of variety in the big cities like Cebu. You can get pizza and stuff there also and it's not great but not bad either, but not all restaurants will reproduce the same flavors you expect. I wouldn't worry about the food basically is what I'm getting at.

Just curious as to where you read that? Good food is available most anywhere in metro Cebu. Do a search back through this thread. One of my favorite places to eat is A A BBQ with five locations around town and yes it is Cebuano food.

What I' trying to find out is there any places (area's) it would be unsafe to go , of a night /evening.
For a newbie, I would avoid Colon (downtown Cebu) at night. Lots of undesirables like pickpockets, snatchers, druggies, etc.

I then took them up to the pool for a swim and photo session with the other girls.Good series of reports about your exploits!

On most travel sites, one of the biggest complaints about Phils is the food. I've never been to Phils, so that is why I posted. I love good food, and great restaurants. Eating well, or poorly can add or detract from my holiday. That's just me. Vietnam, Thailand, China, Japan, Malaysia, Korea, Indonesia, the food is great and has added to my enjoyment of visiting these countries.Thanks for the tip on A A BBQ, I will try it out in September.

Having read that the food in Phils is of pretty bad quality, I would like some thoughts on where to eat decent food in Cebu.

Names of restaurants would be appreciated.The Lighthouse Restaurant on General Maxilom down the road from Mango Square next to the Mango Park Hotel is excellent.

It serves Filipino food and some of the dishes will probably not be to your taste but others are delicious and excellent value. I just wished that other Phils restaurants cooked food to that quality.

Most of the dishes are good for 3 or 4 people, so I usually show up with 3 or 4 girls and the total bill is usually 500-800P but I don't buy drinks. The free "tap" water is actually bottled water from a big dispenser.

Amongst my fave dishes are

The Pork Adobo, Crispy Pata, Okra vegetable dish, Mixed Seafood soup, Shrimp Fried Rice, Ginger + fish soup are all excellent.

Considering a big Pizza or eating fopr 4 at Jollebees costs around the same it is in my view astonishing value.

Xman, the bus ride to Malapascua from Cebu is only about 2 hrs, you can go to CITILINK near the E Mall. Cheap, like P200..... Was just down there a week ago fishing but I drive there. There is some action there, a few unattached ladies, but mostly it is a tourist diver type of place. Also as I cautioned before, beware of the tranny's, lots of Byotes for some reason.

There is a disco that is only open on Saturday nites, I think "Parita's" or something, just ask around, they'll tell you. you might meet a prospect or two.

I usually stay at Quo Vadis, nice pool.Last year 2009 I went to malapascua island and to alona beach on Panglao island.

Gf asked me if I wanted to go to malapascua and I said why not. We hired a taxi driver from Cebu to drive all the the way to the tip of Cebu He took us and we called him to pick us up all for about 5000 pesos inculding lunch and a tip the drive took about 2 hours from cebu art times scenic I wouldn't go on a bus never too hot and too many stops too long and too uncomfortable I am glad my gf said beter to take taxi Once you get tip of Cebu you take a little boat shuttle to Ma about 20 min.

In malapasuca we got a room for about 4000 pesos very small beach and wasnt as clean as alona beach. Stayed there one day. I didn't go diving so we just hung out on the small beach. Very very small island you can walk around it. Would I go again maybe.

Alona beach with resorts close to the water more people nice clean beach more people more night life.

Would I go to alona beach again? In a heart beat but you better bring a girl along to both places.

I just left Cebu. I stayed at the Park Lane and they had a driver who will take you around to various sights. I think it was P1500 for 3 hours. Not a tour guide though...he just drops you off at places and waits for you. The girl at the travel desk gave me a list of sights to see and it worked out well.

As Greg suggests, most cabbies will jump at the chance to tour you around. Just pick out a nice new taxi and offer the driver a day rate. Should be no more then 1200 to 1500 php for a six hour tour including going out to Mactan island.

I should give you the taxi driver we had on our last trip in May. His name is James and he speaks good english. He is a very funny and down to earth guy. He would make a good tour guide. He took 3 of us to Mactan to meet one of my friends chatmates who worked at an open bar in Mactan. Some taxi drivers are just quiet and don't talk much. Their english is probably limited also.

The thing is though, he probably will wonder who you are though if I gave you his number. He made our trip exciting actually.

Fast Eddie 48

Yes it's certainly true that its not smart to go to Tibet for either the food or the mongering. The scenery is breathtaking however and the altitude makes this literally true.

The traditional Tibet food is frankly awful. However over the last few years alot of second rate Sichuan restaurants have opened up. As Sichuan food is in my opinion the tastiest cuisine in Asia (though I agree that HK and Sing offer more variety) even second rate Sichuan restaurants are a vast improvement on the local fare.

Of course you can forget about mongering or even GFE with the local girls, but it is eminently possible to have a holiday romance with a Chinese girl from one of the big Han cities. I hooked up with a cute girl from GZ who had actually come to spread the ashes of her father on Mount Everest. In a Coen Bros moment this poignant moment was somewhat marred by a sudden gust of wind which blew said ashes back over us both.

Pardon me for asking but there seem to be a lot of very knowledgeable guys posting on this forum at present, so I thought I would give it a try.

How much money do you think you need to spend per month to lead a reasonably good lifestyle in Cebu? I mean, enough money so that you would be able to afford an apartment or hotel - nothing too fancy - plus sufficient for bills, phone, internet, food and drink and so on, but also enough left over for 'entertainmment', i.e. girls? I don't really mean barfining girls every night, I mean meeting girls on the internet and paying them the going rate, and only barfining say once a week.

The reason I ask is because I am considering a long term visit quite soon (or perhaps even a permanent move!).

I appreciate that opinions may vary, but I am trying to get some consensus. I asked a similar question on the Davao board but it was about a year ago so things have probably moved on since then (I believe the opinion at the time was around 2000 USD per month for Davao and a bit more for Cebu).

Many thanks in anticipation,

AE

I would have thought $2500 a month would be about right. Why anyone (other than those on a short trip) would want to pay the crazy prices for bar fining here is beyond me, when so many far more desirable and sexy girls are available if you just put a little effort into it. Though the "going rate" for girls is probably 500P/1000P short term/long term if you have someone you have an ongoing relationship with and she gets to like staying at your place and eating with you etc, there you can probably halve this amount.

Many thanks to GregLondon and D Cups for your replies. You guys have certainly given me food for thought.

Any further opinions would be more than welcome.

Also, if anybody has any ideas about how one might be 'gainfully occupied' whilst living in the Phils I would be very interested, because suddenly giving up work completely after many years might come as a bit of a shock to my system! Plus this would have the added benefit of supplementing my overseas income and preserving my savings. (By the way I work in IT in my country.)

Though the "going rate" for girls is probably 500P/1000P short term/long term if you have someone you have an ongoing relationship with and she gets to like staying at your place and eating with you etc, there you can probably halve this amount.

Pardon me for asking but there seem to be a lot of very knowledgeable guys posting on this forum at present, so I thought I would give it a try.

How much money do you think you need to spend per month to lead a reasonably good lifestyle in Cebu? I mean, enough money so that you would be able to afford an apartment or hotel - nothing too fancy - plus sufficient for bills, phone, internet, food and drink and so on, but also enough left over for 'entertainmment', i.e. girls? I don't really mean barfining girls every night, I mean meeting girls on the internet and paying them the going rate, and only barfining say once a week.

The reason I ask is because I am considering a long term visit quite soon (or perhaps even a permanent move!).

I appreciate that opinions may vary, but I am trying to get some consensus. I asked a similar question on the Davao board but it was about a year ago so things have probably moved on since then (I believe the opinion at the time was around 2000 USD per month for Davao and a bit more for Cebu).

Many thanks in anticipation,

AE



One can live quite well in the Phils for 2000 USD a month, it all depends on your life style. Your largest expense is gonna be for rent, you can rent houses or apts from anywhere from P10,000 to P30,000 a month that are FIT FOR A FOREIGNER. Yeah you can go cheaper if you want a real dump in a lousy neighborhood but that is UNWISE.

Second is likely gonna be for food, lets face it, we miss our real bread, our campbells soup, our imported swiss cold cuts for lunch and those things cost money.

I usually pay P2,000 for month, run my AC only at night, TV and Computer during the day and microwave the hell outta my food. Cable TV is P675 a month, skybroad band is P1,000 a month, I have a phone but you don't need that, cell is better.

Figure on the top end, P1,000 a month for food, rent, utils and cell phone costs. The rest is gratus for the ladies, beer, whatever. And you can party your butt off on P1,000 a month.

If you decide to settle in CEBU be careful where you set up at, there are SOOOO many subdivisions with water shortages IN TOWN, I moved outside the city where there are less probs. But I support a wife and family on less than 2 g's US a month (no rent).

If you want more you can PM me.

Many thanks to GregLondon and D Cups for your replies. You guys have certainly given me food for thought.

Any further opinions would be more than welcome.

Also, if anybody has any ideas about how one might be 'gainfully occupied' whilst living in the Phils I would be very interested, because suddenly giving up work completely after many years might come as a bit of a shock to my system! Plus this would have the added benefit of supplementing my overseas income and preserving my savings. (By the way I work in IT in my country.)



As far as employment, there is very little available to a foreigner, since you are in IT I would research some firms in Asia Business park who are looking for a "western" manager, call centers and the like, perhaps some teaching
but don't expect much in salary.

As you can see from my previous post, you could live quite well on about 2K US a month there are those who do it on even less. Like SS pensioners, I know of a few.

If you work in IT, try getting some part time work that allows you to telecommute. For example, there are many ISPs all over the world that need qualified system administrators, and do not require you to be physically near the servers you manage. You can work from PI, manage servers in Australia, get paid in your US bank account (or wherever you live). And that's only one example. You have a lot of options as long as you have power and internet access.
