Nice to see good family relations in a Fil-Am marriage, especially in the area of money, about which some worry.

Thanks for sharing.

Always a pleasure to read your blog posts, Dave, and good to see you and Janet still going strong. You're one lucky man and I hope you will have many more Filipino adventures ahead, and share them with us.

All this really makes me excited for my own retirement! :D

I am also back from Philippines, Cebu after nice vacation with my Filipina foster daughter (now already 20 y/o) and her older sister and her cousin - but while vacation in Cebu is always a nice time for me, to live and to work there is not easy as a young local with low education and very little income, no healthcare and not to talk about the jobless rate. Many parts of Cebu City are really nothing but a slum, not without danger to be out during nighttime as a foreigner.

Agreed. Cebu City, while not as intense as Manila, is not a place I want to spend much time in and Janet and I agreed that it would never be a place to retire in. But the rest of Cebu province - that's a different story.

For good or bad, several of Janet's younger siblings have moved to Cebu City for the work.
