Now, in the last few years Hollywood has done a bit to improve the area.. Well, back in the mid 90’s it was every bit as grungy as it had ever been.
Homeless people everywhere, middle-aged drag queens, sketchy characters all the way around.
I am not so rude as to tell someone that they are wrong, nor am I some “all knowing” being floating above the Astral Plane. This is stressed by myself and the other writers on this site over and over, yet I still receive many job inquiries. Thinking that you can buy land or work around the land laws: The obsession expats have with buying land is truly perplexing to me. Things tend to take on more importance when you live them every day. That belief is easily compounded on vacation or visits where things like hotels are cheaper than in the States. However, many things are more expensive here, and attempting to live a western lifestyle can get expensive very quickly. The Philippines is not Switzerland, Holland, Singapore, Hong Kong or a developed nation with large, wealthy expat or diplomatic community with small children.
However, I notice the patterns and people’s concerns, I have made many mistakes myself, and I can make the following . I know many of you may have breezed through these issues, or they were of no concern. Given the legal climate and prohibitions on foreign ownership, I simply cannot fathom why people would even consider doing so without, at the very least, living here for a year or two first. Thinking they know the market better than the Filipinos themselves? Overall, the cost of living is cheaper, but the Philippines is not the cheap bargain that some make it out to be.
However, after living here for a while, writing on this site for a while, answering questions sent to me, and traveling all over Asia, I have come up with the following list of mistakes that I see people making. You need to survive in the Philippines, but, more than likely, it will not be by working for someone else. But the vast majority of people who move here will not find employment standards much to their liking. How many people even bother to learn the rules of business here? Thinking things will be “different”, but “no big deal”. While here on vacation, the cultural differences are very subtle. There are so many books on the net about living like a king on only 0 per month that it is easy to get the perception that the Philippines is cheap. For instance, there was a question in the forum about international schools near “paradise” beaches. Yes, schools are here, but the demand and ability of most people to pay the tuition is not here. Again, it is so easy to live here on a tourist visa and convert, there really is no reason why anyone (from most countries) should stress over it.
