Hot pussy & Cold beer….

old white guy, best countries to retire cheap, best places to retire cheap, best cheap places to retire “Hot pussy & cold beer.” was the answer I was given when I asked my neighbor why he had retired in the Philippines. That surprised me. The Philippines has made it onto my shortlist because of its English speaking skills and friendly nature. Harold was a 63 year old English guy who I met living next to me in Cebu. Right off the bat, he seemed kind of odd to me. You know how you feel when you meet someone that lacks social skills? That was him. He told me he had worked for 20 years for the government in England, and now had enough to retire. He spent his days on the patio, beer in hand while his  wife worked inside.

Naturally our conversation turned to living in the Philippines and retiring there. As you know this whole blog is about finding the best countries to retire cheap. For Harold “best” meant finding those two essential items. Hot pussy and cold beer.

In stark contrast to Harold is my new roommate in Kuala Lumpur. Jimmy had moved to Kuala Lumpur to find a better school for his son. Jimmy spends every Tuesday and Friday playing badminton with a group of new friends he’s made here. He’s also going scuba diving in two weeks.


Harold related to me how his first few dates with his new wife was spent talking over Google translate while they were in bed together. He had met her on a dating site and flown to Asia to meet her.

Speaking from personal experience, I know several guys who have been horribly burned by these mail order bride situations. Both of these guys, unlike Harold were good sensitive guys who just had gotten sick of the dating scene. Thinking to shortcut the process, they brought the girls home. Fast forward to thousands of dollars spent in immigration fees, and having kids a few years later. Fast forward a few more years to finding their wives cheating on them and divorce.

Both times it was acrimonious and nasty, the women claimed physical abuse and other horrible slanderous things to try to get as much spousal support as possible. They dragged the kids in threatening 100% custody battles if they didn’t get the cash they wanted. One of them wanted over $100, 000 a year. Considering she had made $10, 000 a year back home as a shop girl, this would be a quite a nice tidy sum for a few years “work” being married.

If you’re thinking, “Those guys are stupid suckers. That could never happen to me.” I wish you luck. With marriages being successful 60% of the time normally, what do you think chances of a marriage between two people with different socioeconomic status and language problems will be?

Another thing I talk about in this blog is finding a great place to live while retired. In the Philippines and in Thailand you cannot buy a house if you’re a foreigner. One way people get around this is by putting the house in the wife or girlfriends name. Obviously there’s no possible problems with this (I roll my eyes here).

Jimmy relates to me he gets lonely at times, but is that not what anybody could say? We all get lonely at times, but shortcutting the system just doesn’t work. It will cost you. Whenever I see a 60 year old white man, “married” to a 30 year Asian lady I feel like I’m watching a horror movie. You know the ones where you are saying “don’t go in that room”?

It doesn’t have to be a horrible thing though dating someone from a foreign country. My friend Dylan from Australia  s dating a cool chick he met in the Philippines. All I’m saying is, if you’re looking for the best countries to retire cheap, “best” is always up to you. If it’s hot pussy, and cold beer you’ll definitely find it in Asia. I myself will be staying single and bringing get you more stories from abroad.
