I got an e-mail yesterday from a guy in the USA. He wants me to give him some advice. This guy wants to move here somewhere in Southern Luzon. He wanted to marry this lady from that area. I guess it would be hard for her to go abroad quickly because she has 2 kids from her previous marriage. Anyway, this guy wants to know if he would move here to the Philippines is $10,000 enough for him to start a new life here with this new family of his? He also said that he thinks his lady might be pregnant, that’s why he wants to move here so bad to be with her. He said on his e-mail that they already have a store (I’m just guessing sari-sari store, he didn’t say what kind of store he has) that they started while he came here for a visit. He also said that he built a two story house there too for them.
When I responded to his e-mail I told him that $10k is not enough to start a new life here in the Philippines. Even if he did have a store and a house. That money will be gone in an instant if he would not use it properly. He must invest wisely. I’m having a hard time advising him because I know a lot of the prices of goods these days are going up. I guess for him to stay here he has to live like the local people then. I mean nothing wrong with that, it’s just that he’s used to a good life in the States.
He also wanted to know what kind of visa he is going to get to come here? I’m not sure if they are married already. He wants to process all his paperworks here in the Philippines. I told him on my e-mail that it’s best to process there in the States it’s much quicker I think than here in R.P. He wants to come here ASAP he said.
From his e-mail I don’t think his retired he told me his 44 years old. He would have mention then on his e-mail if he is. Any thoughts from you guys are much appreciated. I will let him read all the advice that’s given. I will give him our website so that he could get some more information that he needs. Thank you so much guys.
