Probably would have advised you to think twice about relocation anyway, given that you have family. Mostly only retirees migrate to the Philippines, I think 10% of Filipinos are abroad, less than .001% of the residents are foreign born, unless your an expat of a multinational firm. The reasons are obvious, primarily socio-economic, BUT...
- this is a nation of friendly and welcoming people, as you have known from your dealings with Talahib farm,
- if fighting chickens is your game, there is no better place to do that, legally 365 days (and nights) a year. Over a thousand entries to a 10 stag derby, imagine that
- we love american gamefowl, I think the importation over the last decade has tremendously increased the quality of cockfighting in the Philippines, no doubt there.
So, come and visit once in a while, there's a great audience and friendly competition waiting for you in the Philippines.
