You're all correct guys. There's no substitute to be with your own natives. No matter how hard life is over there, people are always happy and having good time. I myself plan to retire to one of the provinces there. But that is still a long time to come. In the meantime, I will enjoy driving my 91 MPV around the entire north America before I retire somewhere.

ARJoshua, I may contact you sometime before summer to get some pointers in travelling to Toronto from US, maybe via NY or Detroit. I'm here in Texas. My family wants to experience the Niagara area. If that's ok with you. I may see some old classmates too in Toronto.

Thanks.

unless your wife or spouse is filipino or posses a filipino citizenship you can purchase a land....myself does not have a filipino citezenship or have philippine passport aswell (left the motherland 14yrs old) i always joke to my wife that i'm a stranger on my own land everytime we go back home....so anywho we're able to buy land because of my wife's dual citizen so the property is under her name but we talked to the realtor to put my name as the primary...

Just have to watch out for squatters if it's not being managed or maintained closely.

Hi guys!
I will be going home for vacation on the 23rd with my family after 9 yrs of stay here in Toronto. Very Happy I know its not the great time of the year, i checked the temp and its goes up from 30 to 39 deg C. I could hear my kids complain now. I was checking the mazda site in Pinas and too bad we dont have the gen 2 pv there. Do you guys know if we can get any jdm MPV accessories surplus from japan? I am thinking of chrome accent side view mirrors/door handles, spoiler, jdm headlight and tailight stuff etc..etc.
Anyways if i dont get anything for my PV, i'm sure i can get something for my supercharge MR2. Smile

I guess the reason for not having the PV in Pinas is bigger passenger vans are more popular, my brother just bought the 12 seater nissan urban diesel. Smile
