Retired Brit (Vintage 1950). Settled permanently in the Philippines after retiring from a lifetime career in Nursing in 2011. First left the UK in 1979 to take up a 2 year contract in Saudi Arabia, and quit 32 years later to come here! Now living happily in Davao City with my Filipino partner, who I met on my first trip to the Philippines 26 years ago. Really miss my family back home but am lucky enough to have a wonderful adoptive family here. Also miss fish and chips (typical Brit) and a pint in the pub, but San Mig and crispy pata help fill the gap! Mabuhay!!
