Joe Bogo Another Troubled Expat

Last month, Drew Frederick Shobbrook was arrested for allegedly running a “cybersex den” in Cebu. I don’t know if he did these things.  Frankly, there are some things that don’t quite make sense to me. I’ll get in to that later.  I’m more interested in alerting people of the bad situations they can put themselves in while living in the Philippines.

I don’t know Drew, but I do know people that know him. I use to be a member of a forum that he was a major participant of. Several expats on that forum have been allegedly involved in questionable activities. I’m not going to say which one. I got thrown off when I started a website. I was upset at the time but in hindsight, it was one of the best things that ever happened to me in the Philippines.

Let’s Go Island Hopping in the Philippines

Mostly because the degree to which American’s enjoy freedom of speech seems to be unequaled in the rest of the world. His question  gave me the idea to write this article.

The question “How much money do I need to live in the Philippines?” is one I get often. This is a question that often comes in email and is a question better asked in public so that it will help others. Of course, there is no one answer fits all for this question. I require more money that many due because of my medical bills. The cost of living in the Philippines is much lower than it was in the USA for me. Some say it is higher, I don’t see how it could be. Some things cost more. The cost of services and housing is where you will likely have the biggest savings.
