Meetup in the Philippines? Many HA members are there!

Post by Winston » July 9th, 2014, 3:15 am

Since many HA members are now in the Philippines, why not organize a meetup there?

Rock, why don't you organize a meetup in Manila, where you usually are?

Or it could be in Cebu, Palawan, Boracay, etc. where the beaches are. But Manila may be more convenient for a first meeting.

If you go to Boracay, you can each bring your own dates or girlfriends. Or Rock can invite some middle class girls down there to meet you all, so you don't have to pay for them. lol. If you brought poor girls there, you'd have to pay for everything for them.

Can someone there organize this?

I would like to organize a meet-up for the HAers here. It could be Manila area or Cebu area, whatever is more convenient for majority.

I will be in USA from July 15-August 10, 2014 so could we do something later in August? Going to beaches would be nice but logistically it's complicated enough just meeting in one of the 2 large metro areas.

Who's gonna be around Phils. in second half of August? What about you Winston?

That would be a great idea Rock. Why do you have to come back to the USA again? Geez. Aren't you tired of this place? Where in the US will you be? If you are anywhere nearby, perhaps you can organize a meetup in the US too. lol

I'll try to be there by August. Yeah we should meetup in the city first, like Manila. Then after we all get acquainted, we can plan a second meetup in a beach area like Boracay.

Don't you spend most of your time in the Philippines now? Where are you now? Can't you arrange a meetup there now?

Which HA members are in the Philippines now? Can you list them?

I just contacted newlifeinphilippines by PM and offered to meet up with him in Cebu but apparently, his live-in has him under house arrest 24 hr. lock-down so he declined. No wonder the guy has such a glum view of what's available to him. He lets one of the first girls he meets close him off from everything lol.

I'm generally only available in Manila area, preferably Makati and Quezon City, commuting to other parts of the city is a huge hassle. I'm only in other PI cities when I'm working and that's completely random usually.

I returned 2 months ago I couldn't deal with the daily sexual harassment by virgin, Filipina teens in 47C weather. It was making me depressed.

Yes!!
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Rock,
Thanks for making that list. You must have a good left brained memory.

Hey what about your best friend Ginger (aka Jboy)? lol. Are you going to invite her too? lol j/k.

Btw, Ladislav told me he's back in the Philippines again. I don't know how long though. He doesn't post much anymore.

There's also Larry Elterman, but he hasn't posted in a long time.

I'll let them know about it.
