It was a good day. In the morning, I went for the first time, to Dumaguete’s Starbucks Coffee house. In the afternoon I was invited to Francis Santo’s birthday party at his new Italian Restaurant, DELICIOUS MINI RESTAURANT.
NOTE: Thank you for inviting me to your birthday party. It was fun.

  1. Mom Cher Ami buddy bud bud…I know U moved to a new place…but is it under a rock???,😂😄😂
    That StarYucks☕ not’s been there on the BOLIVARD for almost a year or maybe more…..
    gimingaw ko Dumaguete
    amping diha Migo bud..😄

  2. Sorry but no Starbucks burnt offerings coffee for me. Better to buy local, Liberica is top notch coffee. 100% Kona from Hawaii is the best I’ve had. Been thinking Dumaguete is a nice place to settle but I’m beginning of believe there’s way to many expats there “Americanizing” the place. What’s you’re opinion Bud, is Dumaguete already saturated by Americans?

  3. Why would anyone give Bud Brown a thumbs down? Who are these people? haha
    Keep on Truckin’ Bud.. hope to see you for lunch after this Virus clears up.

  4. You will not have problem with sockets if you use instead an ipad with any generic bluetooth keyboard along with a power pack. That’s how i do it outdoors. I never run out of power.

  5. Very entertaining, as usual, Bud. I’m so glad that you have befriended Dumaguete’s Karate Kid. I have to say that your face mask-wearing practices seem kinda random, at least based upon the evidence of this video.

    of the good video.
    If you have time,
    come visit my YouTube.
    Thank you

  7. Have you ever thought about posting language classes on YouTube? We were supposed to move to Dauin the first week in August but because of no change in the lockdown in metro Manila we had to move the date to September

  8. Bud, you drink coffee like i drink San Mig Light, LOL. Surrendering your details on a card is the more discreet method, rather than writing it on a public list for all the world to peruse, which then becomes available for unwanted individuals to check your accomodation out. I went to a Vodafone outlet at the local mall here in NZ, and a shop assistant refused to serve me because i was reluctant to put my details on the public list at the entrance. I was 79yo and left the store without service and he appeared to not care less. Later after the lockdown was lifted, a very nice young woman assistant at the same outlet, said he could have taken my details in private. Incidents such as this, challenge my faith in modern day humanity.

  9. Rockstar parking and you had Starbucks all to yourself. It is a bit crazy they didn’t have any power receptacles for laptop in the restaurant. I guess they don’t want you hanging around too long. Paul is really getting to be the Phil Donahue of the Philippines. That man just loves to do interviews and I will say, he actually has a knack for it 🙂

  10. In earlier years Tea Houses were popular and everywhere now you can’t find a place that sells a cuppa tea and nice cake it’s all gone coffee mad .,I thought your coffee was gonna spill over as table was unstable lol glad it didn’t.

  11. No to Starbucks from me. Overcharging from coffee and avoiding taxes in more than 70 countries.
    Birthday seemed nice though. Thanks for the video!

  12. Well good morning Bud and Gloria from New Hampshire. Hope you enjoyed your coffee. And to those who Do Not Support Star Bucks I am on your side. This is the Bud Brown Show and sharing his daily life in a place loves. My feelings or your feelings is really IRREGARDLESS! It’s all about Bud Brown and let’s just be his “Student’s”.

  13. ₱160 for a cup of coffee?? Really? And it wasn’t even the special Mochalachalooloo coffee.
    My sister used to spend up to ₱250 for her twice daily MLLL in the States. She also gained weight.
    I drink black coffee (Coke) and brown coffee (Ice tea).

  14. Happy birthday to Francis. Is that the first Starbucks in Dumaguete? Looks like they still have some things to iron out. The franchisee doesn’t want his or her customers plugging in and using electricity. Or using the wifi haha.
