My YouTube Video got Demonetised

Every YouTuber that runs Google Ads on his or her YouTube channel complains about demonetisation experiences. And some major channel even throw in the towel and search for other ways to pay daily expenses. The way I see it, YouTube is on a fast lane ruin it’s own platform YouTube is changing into a rubbish channel full of cheap entertainment and click bait titles.

How much did I spent in Puerto Galera, Philippines?

How much did I spent in Puerto Galera, Philippines?

The cost of living in Puerto Galera is higher than the cost of living on Siquijor Island where I lived before moving here. I guess the main reasons are: closer to Manila and very touristic. Where Siquijor is still developing its tourism. When it comes to reachability and infrastructure of roads, I think Siquijor is better of. Roro’s and banka’s almost every hour and wide stretched roads even through the mountains. As for Puerto Galera: only bankas, if you want…

Renting an apartment in Puerto Galera, Philippines

Renting an apartment in Puerto Galera, Philippines

After the first stage of the journey through the Philippines I arrived in Puerto Galera again. It was two years ago since I first came here. I started my adventure in October 2015 in Puerto Galera, where I did an all inclusive in Badladz Beach Resort. The benefits of an all inclusive in those days were that you can get used to the country and overcome your culture shock within save boundaries of hotel grounds. With not a lot to…

Philippines, cost of living

Philippines, cost of living

The cost of living in the month of June, as far as my lifestyle. As I have been emphasizing ever since I started occasionally sharing my cost of living: your cost of living depends on where you live in the Philippines and what your lifestyle is. If you sit in front of the aircon all day all night, your cost of living will be so much different only because of your electricity bill. Mine is around 1000 pesos (20 euro)…

About Motorbikes, dogs and accidents in the Philippines

I drive a big motorbike, specially for a woman my age. I am 56 and my motorbike is a Yamaha SZ150. Yes, it comes with a clutch. Many Filipino men tell me that is not a female bike. Somehow a motorbike with a clutch is a male thing. Not for me. Although it is a heavy bike (150 kg and with full tank even heavier) I love driving it. And I do not feel ashamed when I’m parked in the…
