    I have been in the area about 9 years. I have many acquaintances but only a few what I would call close friends. Being I am married and have a child, I am not into the bar-girl chasing scene.
    Having said this, I am as happy and contented as I have ever been. All I need would be an U.S. Rib Eye steak.
    Anyone happy and contented here?

    I think most people carry happiness within them ..... I guess you are the type of person who would be happy in most places. Some people could be in Paradise and would find something to complain about. I put the 'bad' here on one side of the 'scales' and the 'good' on the other side and GOOD is a sure-fire winner to date.

    Pat...I think a good number of folks are quite content in the life's they have for themselves in the Philippines. The limited number of folks I spend time with are very happy with their current situation and are not looking for that piece of tail...other than what they have at home.

    Let's see if I can get you some US Rib Eye steaks from the Commissary in Korea into the Philippines on my next trip (September) back without getting confiscated.

    Hello Shawn, if you bring the steaks into the Philippines, you are saying there is a chance they may be confiscated?
