Wow, American wants to retire in the Philippines. From a first world country will retire in 3rd world country. Many retired fukced up brain military Americans are living in the Philippines because the US pension is not enough to live in USA, it is hardly for them to survive. However, people in the Philippines think they have heaps of money because they are foreigners. The wrong mentality of the poor Filipinos, they have no idea that these retirees are in the Phils to survive. Countries like Thailand, Bali Indonesia, Vietnam, Fiji, the Philippines and countries in South America are the targets of Foreign retirees as a refuge home. Wow! Living in corrupt countries to survive, what a legend? So American dream is only a dream, no more honey pie ahh, but a slice of cake. So what's next? he needs someone to clean, cook and house keeper, why not looking for a wife for free sexc too so no need to pay? All in One in one shot means cost saving. Anyway California is not much difference in the Philippines. Time will come your unstable mind Army fiance will get rid of you, believe me it will happen. He will get a young girl to do the home duties and to look after him before his time come. At the moment, you have plenty of time before it happens. So, you better start to look around to replace him, someone who has no ambition to retire in Philippines. I will retire in the Philippines and will do exactly like that. So Americans before criticising the Philippines and belittle the Filipinos, examine your almighty USA first.
