I look at the site(s) touting “Live like a King in the Philippines” and the big problem of knocking them off the block with their rose tinted view of the Philippines is they are a very old site and will take time to push them off that internet cliff.
But this is where I need your help! Just want articles based round “Live like a king in the Philippines” positive or negative it doesn’t matter as simply if it has worked for you then its true for you. Negative as well is even more important as getting people to switch the brain into gear instead of nodding dog syndrome is important. I know people often say a lot of these people deserve what they get and at the same time I feel sorry for them as its a bit like telling someone they will be woken up in the morning with a lovely breakfast in bed, Just forgetting to mention that its just before the firing squad.
I know nearly everyone has a story to tell well no doubt many stories if they decided to share them but I would be happy if people just sent in one, doesn’t have to have a name on it and doesn’t even have to have location information. Its all about the content and what happened more than anything else.
At the same time this is open to everyone! not just Expats and foreigners.. This blog is read by more Filipinos than anyone else and I know a lot of it is out of interest of how expats work (mentally) but I get a lot of feedback with people that in the West would probably defend their nation regardless of right or wrong but simply saying “its so true”.
