Today or tomorrow I'll get a $1 package for 1 GB/3 days to do some speed tests while walking around.
The thing with streaming is latency, packet loss etc. If that suddenly goes up then the stream will break off and quickly become unwatchable. Speed tests can't really tell you that. Maybe create a private stream, record it and re-watch it for watchability.

Cheap packages also usually have strings attached as in a few hundred MB at max speed and then it's capped to something really low.

Your ex looks really good in those last photos imo. I was thinking she was a bit fugly b/c I only saw that one where she's checking her phone (I think you captioned it "gf checking Bitcoin" or something like that), and she doesn't look too good there. I know a latina with a prominent chin like your ex and there's a ton of variance in her pics based on the angle.

So whats the plan now that "Chinese Black Friday" has hit?

Poker / betting / gambling were never legal in the mainland but tons of websites still found ways to promote themselves (usually via middlemen agents) and to accept people's payments.

I'm curious if this will really affect the site he's playing on.

I've heard that pokermaster app won't be affected, he could play there if he has to

she's hot as fuark

hey man maybe you should make your house a decent place even when there are no girls coming you know...

this is what I love about chicks. to bang the hot ones you must have your **** together, so it's a positive influence in our lives.

are you doing streams already?
04-24-2018 , 09:23 PM
One other idea; have you thought of renting your apt in AirBnB?Even if it's small you could still share the room with some traveler for cheap, get some beer money and have cool experiences. Could help your streams as well.

If you don't like the idea then well, it doesn't hurt to have suggested

Cheers

Someone for the love of God bring G2A back to Asia.
04-25-2018 , 05:39 PM
Hey, Boris. Long time no see! How are you doing?!

I'm trying a new job/life back at home, with big hopes.

HOWEVER, if things don't work here, I plan to move to Asia for good (last time it was just traveling). So let's see what the future holds!
04-26-2018 , 03:05 AM
G2A, where would you move in Asia? Wish you the best for your new life in Brazil. Even if you stay there it would be nice to read about your adventures smashing Brazilian HBBs with glow.
04-26-2018 , 08:58 AM
Entertaining thread, you're very ... silly though. Can't help rooting for you regardless.

GonZo, my favorite country after the first trip was the Philippines. I'd choose between Metro Manila(made 3 really good local friends there) or Davao (seems cheap and easy). But also I think I'd occasionally travel to find other places to live, between China/Taiwan/Vietnam.

Perhaps I could make a thread trying to convince people to move to Brazil? Is that allowed? @bluegrass

Damn you could rent a fricking Mansion for that in Croatia. Must be making a lot of crypto gainz.

Jspill mentioned an amount about 1/3rd of that on his blog although for a much smaller place and pricing like that seems to be the exception from what I've seen.

Do you consider the serendra to be the best there is in BGC? What made you move away from Icon?
04-27-2018 , 04:17 AM
Yeah French jon had a 47sqm room with a bit old furnishings for 30k, that was Two Serendra, I assume the rooms at One Serendra must be much nicer

A really nice 90sqm flat in Zagreb would cost me around 1k$ for the equivalent of what I get here, but I dont wanna live there I got super bored this trip. Came back for winter season after 6 years to "try it" and really hated life.

Serendra amenities are no question the best in Manila. The whole place seems like a 5 star resort. Two serendra residents arent allowed to use the one serendra amenities but think James did it, maybe they didnt care cause he is a foreigner.

Icon was completely fine with me, fantastic view of the golf course but amenities were **** and I wanted a bit bigger place this time cause Im moving in with gf + her office is close to serendra so she can walk. Fwiw my landlady was so nice in the end she bought some of my furniture for 1/3 price (would have thrown it away anyway) and returned my full deposit even though i made like 100$ of damage.

real estate agents call one serendra premier and two serendra is 1 class lower but forgot the classification
the differences that I remembered are
1. number of floors, 18 in one and 38(or so) in two
2. property management is much better in one
3. full sound isolation in one serendra

I really like #3 cause I yell a lot with friends playing PES

I am not the overlord of this sub forum but basically what is not allowed is micro penis talk in Ask us about Thailand thread or promote websites about SEA that have absolutely nothing to do with poker but a thread about living in Brazil, all good, don't worry. Do it brah.

So tomorrow is the big day. Either the debut of Info's stream or the last we see of Info for awhile. (My money would be on the latter)
04-28-2018 , 06:47 PM
What time on Sunday is the stream? Important info to relay to viewers imo.
04-29-2018 , 01:54 AM
Looks like a quarter to never.
04-29-2018 , 01:59 AM
InfoShove confirmed to have adapted filipino time.
