Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

No but right now we are only 2 people living in the 3 br place so I don't think it's overpriced. She rents out the other room short term but appearently it's empty most of the time.

I could upgrade to the room twice the size for 12.5k instead of 8k but I don't really need it... The bed is just as uncomfortable.

I didn't even have any intention of going to Asia at the time, I just found the stories in those threads entertaining and it always makes me happy to see people cut ties from the norms and expectation of society to live life as they want.

Flight to Manila is in 9 days, idk what to expect but I'll share my experiences here.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I upgraded to slightly larger room with AC and desk for 12.5k instead of 8k for the shoe box. Same apartment.



View from window that's kinda blocked by the bed:


I need to disappoint I had nobody over yet. It's about time.

The banging might be awkward in that bed

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Only because of the wallpaper that gives this room a really strange vibe lol

I don't mind a single size bed that much and I doubt a girl without running water in her place minds.

That's really awkward.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

I think it's alright to stay in a room with flowers or such on the wall paper. I've stayed in rooms like that before and still had plenty of action, and wasn't like the girls I had over laughed at me for it either.

Not going to lie to you though, a room with Cars (or whatever Pixar movie that is,) wall paper literally wall to wall, that might be pushing it a bit. I'm not saying girls you have over won't still have sex with you, but don't be surprised if you get a few comments or even laughs here and there.

Wait so you originally had a place lined up for 250 that would be all your own right? Decided to not take that room because you dont want to put out a deposit and save 90 bucks on the room.

Now you upgraded to a room for 250(same price as your own place) but instead of having your own place you live with two filipino men you just met this week. You're also not allowed to have girls stay the night without paying said strangers extra cash correct?

I mean id personally of told them to F off if they said i couldnt have girls over for the night without paying a tax. Clearly their just trying to take advantage of you being a noob to the Phils. You already know you could of got your own place in that area for 250 before you came. I dont get why you are paying the premium for roommates u just met and a twin size bunk bed. Also you got kids wall paper u got to get a new place ASAP.

LOL could be true but it would just annoy me when i woke up in my twin size bunk bed with no girl cause of man tax to see that wall paper. My GF has hello kitty **** on the wall in the ballroom.

I bet if you made your entire wardrobe hello kitty outfits in Thailand girls would be K2D style "malling" you when you were walking around term 21.

No, I didn't find a $250 place that would be my own, that's just the budget I've set for that. Originally I had the $160 room thinking it was larger and considering staying there for up to 6 months if it's comfortable and alternatively finding an own place for up to $250.

But the deposit is a big deal for me, it means I'll go broke 1 month later if I do. And living in a shared apartment isn't as bad as I thought, definitely worth saving the deposit and being in a relatively nice apartment and building for $250.

It's not 2 dudes, at the moment it's only one 39 year old Filipina and the third room is empty.

Oh my bad i thought you said you already had a place lined up before u came for 250.

If the guy had two empty rooms in the apartment i bet you could of either told him you wanted to pay less monthly OR im allowed to have girls stay the night. I'm figuring he needs roommates bad if he has two empty rooms for rent.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

It's still a girl not a guy. I tried hard to negotiate but 12.5k with AC or 12k without is all she would do. I should have insisted that I'm allowed to have girls stay the night, I didn't negotiate that when she mentioned it cuz I was a bit worried of seeming like a sexpat to her and how she would take that. I'll try talk to her about it again.

You're young as *** so clearly not a standard sexpat. Its not like she said no girls overnight shes trying to tax you for having girls overnight.

Anyways good you did negotiate some. I'm guessing she needs roommates just as bad as you need a place to live in that price range if not more so something to keep in mind.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Just realized u didn't talk her down from 12.5 to 12 u said ac or no AC. Gotta be worth 10 bucks extra for AC did u get it?

How much for a girl to stay? Time to bring a girl over and get this party started IMO.

Either I don't care what the girl I bang thinks, in that case the room doesn't matter much.

Or I do care, in that case it shows the gold diggers. If an 18 year old girl requires a 22 year old guy in the Philippines (where locals live with their parents till 25-30) to have a decent place then fukc her.
