    It does seem cruel here compared to how it mostly works in the West (Australia at least) but it is what it is and I am trying to cover those bases beforehand if possible. Did your Husband have a Death cover for Natural causes? My brain is a bit foggy now regards past covers I once had, and I do need to look into it soon to see if I can obtain a Death cover here that will cover Death by Natural Causes, as well as Accidental Death. I would like for everything to be covered and give my Wife and Daughter some breathing space and relief when the time comes whereby they will have things covered. I am actually thinking of investing in Two Cemetery Plots if it is possible to purchase them in advance. I have read in some SE Asian countries you can only use that plot for (I think) 20 years before they remove your remains and sell that plot again. Need to look into that to find out if that is the case here also.

    Yes Boss! :biggrin: lol

    I am not sure if you looked up while you were here mate, but PLENTY of ventilation in my Nipa Roof here! :biggrin: hehe

    I plan if possible in the new house to have a cement/concrete Ceiling with a Terrace on top accessible by internal stairs, with a bit of a Bat Belfry of sorts where I can open small windows to release the heat from inside and small cement decorative breezeway windows over each door in each room to aide ventilation throughout the House. After the Termites made themselves at home here I plan on a complete Reinforced Concrete construction if at all possible as Wood is OFF the Menu! :speechless:

    I did think of Wind Power when I first came here and looked into making one using a Car Alternator similar to a Windmill Pump setup, but as you said; wind is not big here, maybe if you lived right on the Beach it could work. I do plan on a few Solar Panels to power LED Lighting for night lighting around a Terrace and maybe low wattage LED (mood) Lighting inside at night to try and save on Electricity, maybe later I can keep adding to that to get off the Grid completely.

    I am assuming you are referring to his life insurance policy. He had gotten that 10 years before we moved to the Philippines (and before he was too sick), it covered any type of death, except suicide.
