  1. Carl, this might have been the original column that was referenced:

    Outrage - FROM THE STANDS By Domini M. Torrevillas - The Philippine Star News Opinion
  2. This is not the article I read, but it refers to the same things and is more recent:

    The BUCK STOPS at CITY HALL | The Negros Chronicle - News around Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental, Philippines

    Another article quoting the former will probably appreciate the last sentence:

    DAILY STAR: Negros Oriental

    And another article:

    Outrage | GLOBAL BALITA

    I am back in Thailand security guards, no bars on windows, no barbed wire, nice houses full of nice things left unattended for weeks and months at a time with no problems...nothing like Dmgte today...
  3. The numbers were from a newspaper article that another member posted on the forum. I believe the article was quoting Vice Mayor Alan Cordova who gave the statistics. I will see if I can find the article in a quick search...

    Hey can you tell me where you got the info on all of the murders and robberies
  5. Carl, sorry, I never noticed this post until today. But to answer you, albeit a few months delayed, Filipinos can travel to Thailand and automatically receive a 30 day visa on arrival. (American citizens can get longer term visas from the Thai Embassy in the US...typically, up to one-year.) If a Filipino wishes to stay longer, the currently favored strategy is to go to the Thai consulate in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where they are issuing double-entry (6-month) visas for Filipinas, et al.

    The cost of living in Thailand depends on your lifestyle. If you like to live fairly comfortably, I would say that Thailand is cheaper than the Philippines and the standards are higher. If you are trying to scrape by on a minimal amount, aren't bothered by Third World standards, and smoke and drink a lot, and/or gamble then the Philippines is probably the place for you. (Thailand has much higher taxes on alcohol and tobacco, and there are no casinos in Thailand.)
  6. Thanks Dong.

    So you and your wife can go to Thailand freely and live there ? Can you own a home there ? And what is the cost of living there compared to the Philippines ?
