OP, the "Plan B pill" is a meme. A girl can only take it a couple of times before it stops being effective... and even 1 time is bad for her health(and they know it). When I was still a noob I creampied a young girl... got her a pill. The next day we got drunk and did the same thing again LMAO. Went to the pharmacy and the guy said "are you ****ing crazy? you'll **** her up" and did not sell me the pill.

Conception chances are small anyway

Save some of the girls for me !! I'm coming soon

Why did you quit poker? With your budget if you're a winner even in micros you will be able to extend your stay.

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

Almost half the starting life roll k2d moved here with and almost half the monthly manila spending. Pretty impressive

Afaik you're allowed to work in the Philippines, unlike Thailand, so you could get some department store job or something and hit on chicks all day

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

wont getting a department store job be super difficult? given they have to pay for work visa which seems no point when you can hire a filipino. and isnt requirement you need "skills" which filipinos dont have to get a job here?

unless you know somebody in a company who can hit you up with work visa. doubt it will happen

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

Not 100% sure but from what I've read it doesn't need to be a skill Filipinos don't have, the company just has to want a foreigner.

I've seen some foreigners in department stores, sometimes they want one token white face.

It's still hard yeah but not super hard, afaik. The salary would suck though.

Because all I could do with my limited abilities was to bumhunt and my volume was very low. My mood of the week depended on how I was running and I never put in consistent hours because of the stress / demotivation from downswings.

If I'd get staked for like 50nl I'd think about it but not on my own dime again.

I would also love to try Manila live games, I've never played live and it seems like a bumhunter's paradise... But not on my current life roll.

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

I forgot a fun detail about the first night with Stoner Girl (who's visiting regularly now). On my laptop in a new browser tab she spotted a bookmark called "Picking up Girls in Malls in the Philippines" and laughed at me asking me to open it. So I opened it and told her about the k2d note strategy to which she responded she'd text a guy that does this to her but only if he looks cute. She also asked me for a pic of k2d so she could judge if she'd text him but I didn't find any pic on Google (or wasn't sure which one is him).

Same here. Poker had too much influence on how my days went...

brb running bad or playing bad, feel miserable

It might be worth it if you're making $10k/month, but not the $1000 I'd profit in 30 days average. Gotta be a volume freak too, which I am not.



Hey OP, I have a really good suggestion to you on how to make money online, not sure if I should post it here though

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

Pretty hard to go broke if you live on $600/mo and are a native English speaker with a computer, you can just find some freelance writing gigs and get hired over Indians and Filipinos. Bang out 2 or 3 short articles a day

Google reddit freelance writing, reddit work online, reddit beer money

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

Can you apply for ACR card and visa extension on the same day?

My visa expires in 7 days (and I know I need to apply for extension 7 days before) and I haven't even applied for the ACR card yet. Can I apply for ACR card and visa extension today on the same day or will I first need to wait for my ACR card to be issued?

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

Ok thanks and one more question: Will I need to be super early to pick up my passport and the processed application after a few hours or can I just leave my passport there overnight and pick it up the next day?

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

you dont need to get the acr card until 60 days not after the first month, and it always takes quite a bit of waiting time until they give it to you

i dont think manila is a bumhunters paradise in the slightest, the casinos are so spread apart if you go to one and the game sucks have fun taking a lengthy taxi ride to the next, waiting on the list, and hoping the game is better there

wear pants, they generally will tell you that no you cant leave it overnight, however if you just leave and dont come back til the next day they surely would have to give it to you

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

Oh thanks!

By bumhunters' paradise I mean live compared to online in general, not just live in Manila. I haven't played live in general and I see live as a good environment for bumhunters that generally play more exploitive. But I haven't considered the drawbacks like you mentioned.

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

recently in makati visa office ive been getting turned away if i go in about 2/3pm. so try to get there early

i usually leave my passport for a week there. longest ive left it is over a month. they dont care. but if you got good sleeping pattern may aswell go same day.

since du30 i swear immigration process has got much faster. last time i did it they processed it all within 1 hour. maybe its just makati office getting better

385 Gil Puyat Avenue . this one. bottom right i think it is

when you walking up to it its 2 buildings past "anytime fitness". it will have philippines flag.

just go yourself if youre awake..you should def be out before 12 if you go at that time.

surely thats because you overstayed...so the extension will make it go past 60 days in philippines before being required to go do another extension? therefore youre required to have ACR card. but if you went on time, it would take to 60 days therefor not needing ACR card until 2nd extention
