Street Peddlers

Street Peddlers are everywhere in the Philippines. They will come up to you and ask you if you want to buy anything from watches, knives, burned DVDs, Cialis, Viagra, etc. Merchandise they sell can be bought at the malls. A peddler once offered me a cigarette holder with a built in lighter for P300. I negotiated the price down to P200. Later I found the exact same cigarette holder in the mall selling for P150. The only value I received from buying the holder off the street was the convenience of it being there when I wanted it and the fact that the peddler selling it displayed how great all the gadgets were in this one cigarette holder.


If you want to buy drugs or medicine such as Cialis or Viagra I would buy it at the Pharmacy. The pharmacy is safer and they have medicine similar to Viagra. If you do decide to buy off the street, before you buy ask the peddler to open the box, take out the tablets, and show you the goods. This is to save yourself from possible illegal drug possession just in case you are being set up by the police. If you do not want to buy from the peddlers, tell them "no thank you" and move on. Sometimes these peddlers are persistent and will follow you for a while. When this happens, keep walking and continue to say "no thank you."


Money Exchangers

Money exchangers are abundant in the Philippines. The street exchangers usually pay more than the banks but you must be cautious and not go to any exchanger. Avoid people off the street who will come up to you and offer you a higher rate if you go to their exchanger. I have done this before but it's a scam. These money exchangers are good with their hands almost like a magician. Before you know it you are on your way out of the shop not realizing you have just been conned out of a few thousand pesos. From then I learned one golden rule, when in doubt, exchange money where the natives go. If there is anyone who knows the best honest place to obtain the most pesos in a money exchanger, it is a Filipino. If you are in Manila, Ermita on Mabini Street there is a money exchanger called Edzen. This is the place where most Filipinos go for their transactions. Again be careful because there are a lot of money exchangers and street people ready to intercept you on your way to Edzen if you are going by foot, just keep walking and tell them no thank you. Do not stop to chit chat. You can catch a taxi to Edzen too.


In Angeles, the money exchangers are competitive with each other and usually have the same rates. Fortunately I have not encountered any magicians in Angeles or street people offering me more for my money unlike Manila. Feedback I have received from other expats is that Norma's is the best place for money exchange. Norma's is located on Teodoro, 1-2 blocks from Field's Avenue; the street between Natalia Apartelle and Manson Drug. Other exchangers I have been to with a little more convenience due to location are:


a. Natalia Apartelle

b. One right next to Natalia Apartelle's Money exchanger

c. One across the street of Natalia Apartelle

d. One across from the Genesis bar.


Note: Always have bills in good condition or the changers may deny you. The crispier bills the better and always double count your money.


I would not recommend picking up street girls. You came to the Philippines to see all the girls but if they are not working in a bar with a number attached to them where you pay a barfine then you are taking a big risk because chances are the street girl may be setting you up for your worst vacation ever. Foreigners have been scammed by street girls who have been picked up and taken back to the room. The police then catch the foreigners and arrest them because the girl is under age (18). If this happens to you, it either means jail time or pay an outrageous fine. The fine may be in the millions of pesos; understand that in Philippines there are corrupt police everywhere. The tip here is best phrased as a question. Why risk being locked up abroad or paying millions of pesos for a street girl when you can have a girl from a bar for about P1500? It is not worth gambling P1,000,000 to save P1500.


For all first timers headed to AC, you may want to be prepared to interview your future Asian bar girl prospect. It would be disappointing to pay the barfine with high expectations of receiving the best sex imaginable but to find out your girl doesn't give blowjobs. Some girls take offense or are turned off by all the questioning but to ensure or at least minimize a huge disappointment back in the room, you should execute the interview process. Here are some steps of what fellow mongers do:


1) Look for the girl of interest

2) Ask Mamasan or your waitress if your girl is a Cherry Girl (this will save you time and money knowing if she is cherry)

3) Call your girl down or have the waitress or Mamasan do it for you.

4) Buy her a LD and use this time to get to know her.

5) Begin your interview and ask questions. For example, "you give blowjob?" "how many rounds you boom-boom?" "are you LT or ST?" "can I boom-boom your ass?" "do you have menstruation?"

6) By the time the LD is finished you should know whether you will barfine your girl or not. Did she pass your interview? Did she agree to give you what you asked for?


The more girls you interview the better you will become in acquiring what you are looking for at that time. If you just want a blowjob for a ST, let the girl know the plan then send her home just be sure she agrees. If you want a GFE for LT to wine and dine before 69 get your girl to agree especially to the time she will leave the next day.


The Mamasan is also another source of information. She can help you find a girl specific to your needs without having to interview so many girls and buying a whole lot of LDs. For instance a 3-holer is not easy to find within the bars especially a decent looking one. I would definitely ask Mamasan to first find you a 3-holer. If one is found and looks okay I would still go through the interview process and confirm your needs. If you are successful in barfining a 3-holer because of Mamasan you may show your gratitude by buying Mama a LD or slip her a P50 bill before you leave; it's up to you.


Time to leave. Here are pictures and captions to help you become familiar when departing the Philippines through Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Your driver or taxi must take you to Terminal 1. This guide is meant for US travelers, but I assume it is the same for other countries also.






There are entrances on either the left or right side.




Sometimes there are long lines for oversea workers. You may bypass that line and head for the shorter line. Have your passport and itinerary ready. If you are still unsure of what line to stand in then ask security.










Find your airline and stand in line to check-in. I was returning to the US via Hawaiian Airlines. If you have a premiere club card you may stand in the shorter line and you will later have access to their VIP lounge.






You then head to the terminal fee, immigration, and boarding gates. Yes you must pay to leave this country. Have some pesos readily available or cash.




















Get ready to take off your shoes and go through the metal detector.




Now you can head towards your gate, eat, or if you have VIP access you may stay in their lounge.










The VIP Lounge.














Head towards your gate and wait to board. You must show your passport and airplane ticket one last time and pass through another metal detector. This is it; you are leaving the country of kings. Try not to cry. Caution: PPD may settle in when you arrive at your hometown but the good thing is that will keep you posted until your next return trip.








When disembarking, follow the corridor and the green signs towards the transfer desk, immigration, and the baggage claim. The green signs are hanging from the ceiling.














You will pass through a fever watch checkpoint.






Make a left towards immigration; it may be busy with long absurd lines.








After immigration follows the baggage claim.




After exiting the baggage claim, you must now change your money. There are a bunch of money exchangers right outside the baggage claim but still within the building. Search for the money exchanger that pays the most for your currency. You don't have to change all your money but enough to get you through the night or at least to your hotel. $100 should suffice but it is up to you.














Time for transportation. The metered taxis are right outside the building. The taxis are yellow.










Direct transportation from Manila airport to AC can be accommodated via Margarita Station. You could utilize a taxi which may be cheaper but I have found taxis to be somewhat uncomfortable for short distances so I do not consider them for long distances. The ride from Manila airport to AC is about 2 hours depending on traffic.


Taxis and Trikes

Anytime you catch a taxi be sure to ask the driver if he has a meter. The Yellow taxis are pretty good on utilizing the meter but there are many independent taxi drivers (white taxis) that do not turn the meter on. These drivers make their own prices and always charge foreigners more than the usual rate, in some cases 2 to 4 times more. I have utilized these white taxis before and insisted they turn on the meter or I look for another cab. When times came for me to catch a taxi that ran no meter, I negotiated the price first before entering the cab and I paid the exact price we agreed to with no tip because the price was already adjusted more than double the rate. Always pay the driver after you reach your destination.

The 3-wheeler motorcycle are known as trikes. There are many of them to transport you around in Angeles City. As much as 3 people can fit on a trike not including the driver, two in the passenger cab and one behind the driver. To receive a ride you can either go up to the trike person or raise your hand while looking at a group of trikes and say with a projected voice, "kuya... trike!" One trike from the group will head your way. Unlike a taxi, trikes do not have a meter. The prices are up to the driver which gives you a little room for negotiation but the prices for the distance you go are usually not worth the negotiating effort because all the trikes are about the same price for foreigners. I once payed P50 for a ride going to the Clark SM mall but on the return trip a different driver charged me P100. Always agree to a price before accepting a ride from a taxi (who does not run the meter) or trike and be sure they know where to go. Prices for trikes are for the trip not per person, like a taxi. Note: Kuya (koo-yuh) means older man. I have never seen a woman drive a trike.
