Where and how did prostitutes come into this discussion? No one was talking about such.
Absolutely nothing wrong at all! I do go out with women, of course! When I am in the Philippines, I am treated as a guest...and they show me a good time. Would that be ok? Should it be the other way around? Sorry if I didn't do it right. Next time...I'll make sure THEY show me a good time.

The comments just seem to imply that dirty, old men....never mind, na lang. Oops! Did I use the word prostitute in my last comment? I checked again...thank goodness, I didn't. I could be wrong...but it is probably a common assumption...or perception (based on what I have been told...and personally observed) that when American men go to the Philippines the first thing they want to do is to pick up women. I have personally seen quite a few (could've been American, Australian, British..whatever)...around Malate, Ermita, Pasay...and near the Marriott Hotel in Cebu.... old and not so old men, strolling blisfully, with a young woman (or even two!). I think that's what gives the impression to everyone who sees them...that that's all those old white men look for...women! Don't get offended...it's just an observation. I don't pay much attention to them.

Overall...with all its faults and shortcomings...I still love the Philippines.

For 2 persons, me and my wife. Retired (both seniors) and have excellent health & dental insurance in place.

Bottom line: Wife & I will have about $5,000 (after all deductions) at our disposal..monthly. We would be looking to rent a 2-bedroom (probably at least semi-furnished)..in a nice, quiet area, doesn't have to be on or near the beach, relatively safe/secure..preferably outside the hustle & bustle of Honolulu. Walking distance to a bus stop. Car paid up...no big debts at this point. We enjoy occasional eating out and attend local entertainment venues.
