Living In Manila, Philippines

My Life Living in Manila from 1980 to 2010, though not continuously:

The first time I came to Manila, Philippines, was to do business. I owned a fragrance company, then based in New York and San Francisco. I was doing trademark work myself instead of having international attorneys doing it for me. It was a way to travel the world and save money for my start up corporation at the same time.

At 44 year old had lived in New York City, San Francisco, New Orleans, Berlin, Germany, and already had traveled the world and to most of the larger cities except for the ones in Asia. This was my chance to see them or at lest the biggest cities, including, Kuala Lumbar, Tokyo, Thailand, Philippines.

Living In The Philippines Provinces

The Philippines is perhaps one of the cheapest places on earth to live. Most areas have modern amenities and a home can be rented or built to accommodate the western lifestyle with an Asian flare. Condos can be purchased in larger cities, and owned by Americans, for around $100,000 USD. Homes can be built for $30,000 to $40,000 USD, plus the cost of the land. Of course land cost can vary and only native Filipinos can own land. Land can, however, be leased for 50 years and the lease extended for another 25 years.

Living In Philippines (Rural Area)

Folks speak of living overseas. We have visited many countries and found living overseas to be wonderful. We currently live in the Philippine Islands and have done so, off and on, since I retired.

Many folks view the Philippines as a place to find a nice wife, but it seems to get little other billing. How wrong the media can be not to promote this tropical paradise for retirement. Let me tell you my story.
