Looking to move to Cebu, Philippines late 2011. My Filipino friend says it might be too dangerous but all research I have done online indicates it's safe; at least according to those expats who live there now. I spent 20 years living in Hawaii and love island life but being a haole has soured me on going back there. The Philippines are attractive to me. My sense is that it is friendly if you are friendly even if you are a haole.
