I am an expat living in the Philippines of whom can first just for a holiday back 2000 and found the place a great retirement haven. I am still here 16 years later. As I like to share my experiences of these beautiful Island and mostly hospitable simple folk I have run groups on facebook for many years. I have become an armchair expert on many subjects concerning Philippine law, cultures, visa's and I do not wear rose collared glasses and see things here as they really are. My real name is Bob Johnson-Perkins some people here may know me as a article writer (Babel Fish). I am here to help any one that wishes to visit, stay, work or wishes just to know more about the Philippines.

Best wishes to you all.
