  1. Really enjoy your vids Henry. Do you have access/means to purchase a nice cut porterhouse steak to throw on a charcoal grill at home….Course along with baked potatoes and a couple pounds of prawns as well? Thanks again for all your efforts!

  2. A buddy of mine told me of a local merkado where they sell good beef.. but you gotta be there at 6:00am. I don’t wake up until 10-ish. ha! But it can be done. 🙂

  3. Love ur Video Henry –watch them daily when on !!! So u sleep til 10 am –boy what a life and I see ur chicken is gone –hope he was not a meal for someone !!!!!!!!!!

  4. I was in Manila 1990s. Blackouts for weeks. Take that. Terrible time to be. As locals do we get over it unlike Pinoys from the US. You haven’t tried firewood and charcoal yet?

  5. You Alway keep it positive Henry. Way to go. Have you seen Corn Meal over there? Just wondering. Maybe in the bigger markets. I loved to Roasted Chicken also … They also taste different to me than the ones from home. They are smaller but thats probably because they are not filled with growth hormones. I alway see them cooking with those little clay things that they put palm fronds or small bits of wood in … Then the pots are always black. You way seem better but probably cost more.

  6. I have across ‘grits’, but not corn-meal for making tortillas. Despite the huge pork industry here, I haven’t seen the boxes of ‘manteca’ (pork fat) either. But I’ll keep an eye out for it. 🙂

  7. I did a 2-part video on Alona Beach about a month ago. I live about 30 minutes from the nearest beach, even though the ‘shore’ (pier) is only 15 minutes away.

  8. From what I remember of last year, around February it starts drying up. It’ll still rain, but not as much as during the winter. Pretty much March thru August seems to be the ‘driest’ part of the year.. but it will still rain once in a while.

  9. I’ve seen that video. That was cool. But I mean just the local beach or what we also say public beach. Not the resort and private owned. I’d like to see the local surrounding. Do you have a video of the hospitals in your area. It is through your video and info I see the change in Bohol. Not the desolate island I once knew. It has been overshadowed by Cebu and Dumaguete. Much more if they did not have the “chocolate hills” and “tarsiers”.

  10. I know this is an older video, but the burner in the middle is commonly called an alcohol stove here in the US. They are made from a soda can and really popular with thru-hikers on the big trails, as well as ultra-light backpackers in general. I keep a couple for my day-hike kit as well as when the power goes out. You can boil 2 cups of water with an ounce of fuel, using a windscreen, which can made with heavy aluminum foil.

    Good video as always.

  11. Wansoy, aka Coriander..that’s the Cilantro you’ll find in Filipinas.. local markets probably have them but, sometimes they don’t carry them. Robinson’s or Puregold where I found them once.. and, they’re okay but, not much aromatic as the Cilantros here in U.S. 🙂

  12. I love charcoal BBQ so I have small and larger BBQ grills. Essentially free fuel source with wood I can find easily. But I like how the alcohol stove is fast to heat up and cleaner.

    1. since i’m a single guy, when the power was down i gave all that to a family next door. on my own i could ride around town and find bread or fruit for sale for just me.

  13. I looked high and low for tortillas in the Philippines,and the only place I saw them was in A.C. I usually bring my own in my checked luggage. What store did you find them?

    1. at the time i found some at the supermarket in the ICM mall. but it’s not hard to make flour tortillas on your own. with some improvising can make corn tortillas from the corn meal here, but not quite the same.
