now that your in america for awhile whats your opinion? you miss living in phil or you would rather have your wife brought to the u.s?
The only thing that really bothered me in Phil was no jobs, humidity, bugs crawling on me while I'm sleeping and the dude that got shot in my driveway.

Becareful in China as well! I was in Shenzhen Boan airport once, and I was almost snookered by a deceiving Chinese as I was waiting in the taxi-line: He told me to come down to the basement level where I would be picked-up by some people in a Van, but they ended-up charging me WAY MORE than what I would've paid by regular taxi (Almost three times as much). LOL!...

I yelled at them to let me out of the car, and told them to get my luggage from the back of the van for me. (This could've ended badly, as they could've just as easily kidnapped me or declined to give me back my money.)
