By the way..im living here now. I would love to share this with anyone interested, message me. D
hey darrick I wonder how you get money on this vagabond lifestyle:)?
That is DOPE!!! That sounds like fruity island paradise :D
constant attention from philippinos can be a drawback if im hungry

too much pollution from jeepnees and cars and cooked meat in the city, but you dont need to go there.....but the thing is you end up 'wanting' to go there to be around all the culture differences and excitement...so limit your time there and bring a mask
D24 durian is here in Philippines....exactly the same taste as Malaysia....$1/kilo!!!
oh wow those prices are ridiculous! Hang there until we come D!! After the marathon in July most likely X
amazing! :)
this looks like so much fun! I'm down after the summer 4sure!!!
I need to go there this winter i think!
Wow....just wow!!
Tempting! ;)
yea, 3rd world is epic cheap...
I'm in Sri Lanka right now and I figure the costs are just about the same, probably less in fact, but the one VERY big problem here is the same problem there...the air quality!
It's amazing how everything can be so so perfect but just one small thing can mess it all up in a huge way...
The diesel smog from the buses, motorbikes, cars, jeeps, it's just unbearable, the worst ever. It's impossible to get away from it unless you get REALLY far away. Even 10km outside of the city areas I still have that smog in the air and it is just pure kill-joy. I went 50km into the interior and FINALLY got some relief and fresh air.
It's such a shame that these 3rd world garden of eden countries have zero concern for air quality...ugh, I don't know what else can be done to solve this problem...
