anybody ever been to the phillipines? Experiences?
There's a large filipino community where I live, and I tend to appreciate how communal and lively they are. Where I live, they're also very civil and friendly.
I was thinking of checking it out sometime soon to escape the winter. Any good times to visit, holidays/festivals I MUST see? Good places to go to meet locals/look for a job/study?
If there are any good communities that aren't full of sex tourists/partiers, but instead, a good mix of filipinos open to westerners/expats, either in terms of colleges, hostels or wherever, I'd appreciate that too, as I'd be looking to escape for a good 2-3 months.
thanks in advance

I just scored two air asia x flights from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur for $240 AUD.
I was only using this ridiculously cheap 95% discount to get me into Asia. I need options where to go from here, going with my qt.413 ;p
this year we have done: Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Manila, Bangkok, Tokyo twice..
before that I have done: Fiji, Munich, Salzburg, London, Amsterdam, Rome, Paris, Seoul
looking for somewhere close (within 10hrs) from KL that won't cost way too much (within 1k aud) and something exciting..... I think my gf is sick of third world shit ass countries after this years asian tour.
money is no object though really, not leaving til March next year. 5 months to pay for 5 star hotels and beer money. I'm 30, she is 29.
I thought about Vietnam, Cambodia, buuuuut.... it's gonna be like a worse poor version of thailand/philippines I guess?
