What's going on

Postby Drake_1976 » Sun Nov 16, 2014 10:54 am

New guy here, but have been lurking for a while. Been living overseas (Kuwait) for approximately 14 years. Originally from the U.S. Have no desire to return to the U.S. except to visit my mom. Hopefully I will be able to remain overseas for the rest of my life.

Have been married to a Filipina, but now separated. I was young and dumb when I married her, but won't make that mistake again. Have 2 wonderful sons and wouldn't trade them for anything in this world.

I enjoy traveling to the Philippines and really enjoy my time there. I haven't been to A/C, but have spent a little time, typically 1 night, in Makati prior to departing back to Kuwait.

That's all for now. You all take it easy

It's very easy to get burned by filipinas. Sorry to hear it. Kuwait's not a place we hear much about. So what made you want to stay there for so long?

Yeah, there are some real gems out there. Lol. But you live and you learn

I love my job, plus I enjoy the tax free benefits. Kuwait isn't too bad, as long as you don't have to deal with the locals very often.

What kind of work do you do then? It doesn't exactly sound like a good life if you don't like interacting with the locals. My guess then is your work involves working on some military base.

I'm a contractor. I generally only have 1 day off a week, so I don't mingle amongst the locals all to much. I use too since my sons were born here, because I had to deal with the local ministries for residencies and stuff like that. But since my sons are no longer here I don't have that requirement any longer.

I do enjoy interacting with other expats, with whom I have quite a bit of interaction with while at work.

I don't mind my life at the moment, as long as I can pop out of country every now and again to cut loose.
