I am a retired sixth grade teacher from California who is presently living in the Philippines with my wife and two dogs. These videos aim to be entertaining, inspiring and motivating for people who are tired of the rat race and want to live a simple, yet rewarding life. My passions are studying and learning languages and helping people in any way I can.

  1. Bonjour Monsieur Bud Brown 😊 always enjoying watching your videos, I like your sens of humor. I hope you didn’t forget the promise that you made….. Marc your friend from France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ.

  2. Have Watched Your Segment in Korina Sanchez Today…. I like your Channel and I will constantly watch your videos from now on….. Thanks for retiring in the Philippines Sir.

  3. Anything about the quarantine would be great; I also am over 65 and not allowed out. The wife doesn’t drive so we are wondering how you’ll are getting around?

    1. My wife got a “Quarantine Pass” from the Barangay Captain saying she can go out for food or medication. She catches a tricycle. We give him extra because they’re only allowed two passengers at a time.

  4. We were in Dumaguete last Feb. We stayed at Sierra Hotel. Watched Korina awhile ago and decided to subscribe to your channel😊 more
    Powers po sainu ni Nanay Gloria😍 love love love

  5. It’s all about timing (hence Korina Sanchez Today/Bud brown name’s back) how about that? prediction/intuition?
    Good luck and wish you all the best. Be safe, stay safe, stay home! Best regards/NedπŸ‘πŸ‘

  6. Hi Bud and Gloria, this is our first time to see the movie fantastic just loved it and of course me shed tears thanks so much. Take care and be safe these trying times.

  7. Hi Bud. My wife Terry and her Blue Horizon sisters got back to Florida around Jan. About 2 weeks after they got back, a Jolliebee’s opened in in Largo—-near where Lenny lives. We’ve all been there. They all agree it’s good, but not as good as the ones in the Philippines. We can get out and walk or bike in Florida, but no sitting in restaurants. Stay safe.

  8. I’m from Dumaguete. Discovered your channel because of Rated K this evening. So happy you loved it here, you should visit Sipalay its in Negros island as well but it’s in Occidental down south a 4 hr bus ride, it has probably one of the best beaches in the Philippines, so underrated. Just sharing thought you’d love it. You and Gloria be safe always β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  9. I hope you and Gloria are doing well. Thank you so much for your channel. Bud does Gloria have a vlog with food recipes? I’ll bet she’s an amazing cook ❀️

  10. that speed sound gets me everytime hahaha, nice house…you moved, i think ive been watching old vids that was taken from your old house, take care and stay safe! I want to see your love story too but TFC here right now is off due to corona well, ill watch her for now hoping nanay Gloria will learn to be on camera bit by bit haha, its funny when you said she looks miserable everytime you put her on your video

  11. hi Sir bud and ate Gloria . your story featured in rated K. it is inspiring story of you and ate Gloria. mabuhay po kayo ingat kayo lagi.

  12. Hello Bud and Gloria. Here in the states in Iowa watching you on Rated K on the TFC channel. My wife and kids are here from Valenzuela City, she for 5 years and the kids going on 2 years. We spend a lot of time with our friends in the Filipino American Association of Iowa (FAAI) We really enjoyed your interview, although now my limited Tagalog is even more obvious, hehehe! We are certainly some of the luckiest men having found such wonderful wives. Got you subbed and will be playing catch up on your videos.
    Be well,
    Stephen and Luisa
    PS.. We just finished watching your love story as well, had a few tears and a few laughs, well done!

  18. I am here after watching rated k! Just like you sir Bud i never thought I’d marry a foreigner..I am happily married and is now living here in Houston..I will be following your blog!!!God bless your family!

  19. I absolutely love love love your videos. You are just loving life and make me laugh every day. Keep it up πŸ˜ƒ and God bless you both ❀️ sending love and good vibes from Spruce Grove, Alberta πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦β€οΈ

  20. Due to lock down and ECQ i have so much time browsing and watched Rated K…and knew your vlogger too… im amazed your love story with Gloria..GOD Bless and more years to come..

  21. Bud, you are the nicest guy I have met personally in Philippines YouTube for Americans.. Technically you are the only guy I have met in Philippines YouTube for Americans…. but I am pretty sure you are the nicest out there. I was so shy the time I met you at Max’s in Dumaguete….. but you are just a nice person.

    In light of this covid19 crap going thru the world…. The thing I am most thankful in my 5 trips to the PH, is I learned patience. When the line at the grocery store is 2 miles long….. and we have to keep our space…. it really helps me. I was very impatient the first time I went to the PH (Americans are like that)…. but slowly learned how to be patient.

    I hope I can go back this year, but Im not highly optimistic. Please everyone take care of yourselves and each other in this bad situation the world is in.

  22. hi mr.brown i cant get over about your love story with your wife i keep on watching very inspiring story..im also visaya from iloilo but my brother lives near dumaguete ..regards to your wife .you guys take care and god bless
