well after renting for 18 months and my g f fluttering her eye lashes at me iv,e gone and bought her a wee house in bacolod city ,its a semi detached 2 bed bungalow 110 square meters for 10 k hahaha so cheap .even though we plan to come to the u.k for a bit it will be an investment at that price its worth the risk .we are moving from lapu lapu which is over crowded and polluted in my opinion to a much cleaner enviroment fresh air less traffic wider roads :)

yep and its even cheaper in bohol if you stay away from panglo island lol but as ive said before steve its best to rent for a wee while its cheap and cheerful until you find your ideal plot overlooking the sea .our place is just a temporary house until i find a place that suits me . The higher you pay for a house here the longer it takes to sell ,so if your gonna buy make sure its the place you want to stay for good.steve make sure your neighbours haven,t got roosters hahaha we stayed with g f,s brother who has one and i never got a single nights good sleep in 10 days ,i felt like rippin its head off lol . It would start at around 3 am then the others would here it and they all joined in .thats the most annoying thing here the men love their roosters you just gotta deal with it somehow like try pluggin ya earholes lol.:D

Tiger,

Have you visited Mambukal Hot Springs whilst in Bacolod ?
Interesting place, although the journey there in a jeepney leaves a lot to be desired

not sure what your asking !!!!

Hi Tiger. You said in your first post that it was 10 k. So I was just asking if you meant 10k (10 thousand pounds).

Okay. I see that you later, in post 5, say that it was 700000 pesos. Okay. Cheers. Thanks.
