The Sunday before we move house the BB family digs into their compost heap to find you a lovely treat! Some Coconut Beetle larvae, also known as the Asiatic Rhinoceros Beetle, these grubs grow to enormous sizes and eat through any decaying organic matter. Then they wrap themselves in a cocoon and after a few weeks the adult beetle emerges, flies to the top of a coconut tree and eats the new shoots as they sprout. This is what gives many coconut palms the square cut looking fronds or branches. We just wanted to show you before we leave.
This is our 200th published video.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg ride the Wimp to a very poor coastal community to hire some willing folk to help us move house. They are relatives, and as you may know, 'relatives' can cover a huge number of people here. They go deeper into the community and try to find BB's first house in the Philippines but it's too crowded now. The storms and sea have brought the shoreline closer to the houses and removed some of them. BB gets given coffee and dried fish, such generous folk. Good people. BB talks about the flooding there and his exciting life in that place.

BritishBiker and family take another trip to NAIA Manila airport to say a sad farewell to Jerry, LittleLeg's brother. Airport authorities are making a splendid effort to make Terminal 2 more beautiful and it's working. BB talks about US politics and corruption, Free Trade and horrible Harley-Davidson gearboxes. Best of all, BB sees a beautiful girl with great legs wearing heels; it's the little things that make a difference! Join us.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take a motovlog ride on their Yamaha XT250 aka 'The Wimp' to see their friend to find out what's going on with the house situation. Phone calls and texts are unanswered, the advert for the car has disappeared and BB fears bad news. Moving house is stressful at the best of times but when communications break down it becomes more intense. This highlights the differences between the cultures of East and West in BB's opinion. BB also gives a brief guide on baking the ultimate stuffed potatoes and the merits of pandesal bread rolls. Join us.

BB and family were up around midnight and on the road at 0140 hours to take Nanay (the mother-in-law) to NAIA (Manila airport) as she is going back to Florida USA one more time. Terminal 3 is new and clean and a pleasure to use. Naturally, BB stopped at Dunkin' Donuts inside the terminal. Join us on our dawn drive.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg jump on the Wimp (their Yamaha XT250) and ride off in search of a new atomiser to replace BB's broken vape machine in motovlog fashion. The cigarettes smoked in just 2 days are making his cough worse so finding a new one is vital. Not so many pretty women in town today in spite of BB's best slothing efforts. He ends up buying a counterfeit Avocado 24. It's ok. No more cigarettes. Sorry about the singing.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take the Crow off to a tyre shop for some air and find they badly need a new tyre. The tread had become delaminated and unstuck from the carcass, very dangerous. BB talks about butete, tadpoles in English, the cost of car maintenance, pretty girls and more. They spot a handsome supermoto and visit some vape stores.

BritishBiker's mother-in-law's 70th birthday celebration was a completely wonderful day. One of her sons roasted a pig to provide lechon. Food appeared from all surrounding barangays, hundreds of people, friends and family attended to give Nanay her first ever 'grand birthday' party. The weather was kind, perfect in fact and the last guests left long after midnight. It was great to see Nanay with her two remaining siblings. A beautiful day. We all loved it.
BB and LL picked up 25 balloons in the Crow (their old car) and that was challenging, BB having to drive like Quasimodo. BB also destroyed his vape atomiser in a fit of stupidity. Join us.

Carry on carrying on!

Hello viewer, just a quickie. BB gives his take on Thursday's US Senate Judicial Committee Hearing, Dr Ford vs Judge Kavanaugh. Senator Lindsey Graham was stellar.

BritishBiker motovlogs as he buys a birthday cake, sees what looks like marijuana growing on the roadside, checks out his brother's new plough, that's plow for you Americans lol. He compares himself to the obsolete Betamax video systems. He discusses the merits of the Isuzu Crosswind and identifies the reason he dislikes them, just as a Police vehicle speeds past on an emergency call. He also moans about the increased traffic on the roads as the region develops so fast. He explains how there are nice parts of towns that are quiet and pleasant. Come along for the ride viewer.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg are on a motovlog mission to photograph their friend's car to sell it on OLX. Their friends are off to France. BB talks about his old Buick Skylark and his newly discovered liking for the Toyota Revo. He attempts to give a brief description of the vehicle and the many types available. He spots an original Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser too!
In an incredible twist of fate, their friends make an unexpected offer to the BB family. Never look a gift-horse in the mouth. The BB family is feeling blessed.

So much rain in recent months has meant the BritishBiker garden has turned into a gubat or jungle and so, in spite of the wet conditions, BB takes charge and cuts it all down. LittleLeg is there to assist and a cousin is drafted in to help them.
After brush-cutting, BB sits down and discusses the phenomenon of older men starting families in the Philippines and anywhere else. BB sets out his requirements for fatherhood and comments accordingly. What brought this subject to mind was seeing a miscreant YouTuber make a claim that 50 is too old to have kids. That man is an idiot. BB makes his case.

LittleLeg treats the BB family to another meal as part of her continued Birthday celebration and they visit Chow King at SM in Trece Martires City. They eat and then make their way in the Crow, their ancient Toyota Corolla 'small-body', to go and visit some friends in the highlands of Cavite, around Magallanes and Alfonso. Come with them.

The old boy was up early and rescued his dogs from the wind and rain, letting them inside the house, safe from the ravages of Tropical Storm Ompong. Anything to stop their whining. BB talks about the storm and the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council in this short film taken at 0900hrs 15th September 2018. His comments are tongue-in-cheek and in no way are designed to detract from the good work that this organisation conducts.
Please say a prayer for those in the north who are having a really rough time right now.

Editor's Note: in the film @0.47 the text should read RA 8491

BritishBiker talks to you from his garden about Republic Act 8491 and the recent drive by Calabarzon PNP Region 4A to enforce this code. Those found to be disrespecting the Philippines National Anthem or flag will be arrested, as 35 people have found to their cost so far.
BB relates this to Colin Kaepernick, kneeling during the US National Anthem to further his claim that Black Lives Matter while contributing money to the wholesale abortion of black babies in the USA. BB talks about State-ism and how socialism needs to develop a dependency and love of State; this is quite different from being a patriot showing love of one's country, its' people, culture, heritage and history.
BB describes his preferred actions during the anthem, as an expatriated foreigner in the Philippines. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg are still busy preparing for Nanay's 70th Birthday party and BB discusses trolls along the way in this motovlog. It's a bit of fun and for some I am sure a little dose of truth can be uncomfortable. If the cap fits, wear it! All of the guilty parties have been removed since making this video.
BB sees a beautiful young mother loving her baby who just puked on her shoulder. Inflation is again evident when LL orders some balloons. BB sees another Toyota Revo and shares his thoughts on gasolene vs diesel engines. BB also talks about marriage, chemtrails and more.

Baba (my daughter) and I were called away from a big party to assist a 1987 Mitsubishi L200 Pickup that had dropped into an old muddy rice field. Just a short nonsense film but it shows that even with only 2 wheel drive, and not four wheel drive (4WD), the 2nd generation L200 is still an impressive machine and all that ground clearance makes a big difference.

BritishBiker motovlogs as he chases a guy on a minimoto, or miniature motorcycle, and it looks like a great lot of fun to ride.
But BB and LittleLeg are way too early for an appointment and so wander down a broken road to see what the South China Sea is doing this day, and it's quite choppy, and the gently sloping beach has been stolen by the tides and wind....but it will be back when the weather changes.
BB chats about some of the houses on this beach-side sub-division, The Garden Coast Resort in Tanza, Cavite. Most of them using capiz shells instead of glass for their windows and almost all of them are built on stilts to avert damage during high waters.

BritishBiker starts the video talking about his daughter's recent academic achievements and awards at the end of the first school quarterly exams in Grade 4. Baba did well and also made it on to the 'Principal's List'.
Then he takes LittleLeg off in the Crow to get the tyres sorted out after a recent puncture revealed shortcomings in the spare wheel. He ends up buying another one. After that they visit a 2-storey house they heard about on the grapevine and take a snoop around to report back to their friend who is looking for a place. The house has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms and will be around P7000 to P8000 once the repairs and improvements are completed. Hope this helps.

The BB family take a slow drive to Giligan's Restaurant in SM Trece Martires City, a place they often visit as the food is very tasty and reasonably priced. LittleLeg ordered loads of delicious plates including Crunchy Sizzling Sisig, Spicy Shrimp Gambas, Lechon Kawali, Chop Suey and a lot more.
BB spots a badly crashed truck. He talks about Nino Aquino Day, Filipino driving habits, over-weight hamsters and more.

BritishBiker, LittleLeg and Baba jump into the Crow on Saturday morning and drive up into the mountains to visit their lovely friends to celebrate their son's, Nathaniel, 21st Birthday. There is a massive lechon, roast pig, which Baba could not resist, and it was delicious.
About 2pm we went to leave and saw we had a nasty puncture, so our friends helped us change the wheel, but our spare was mouldy and rather bad.
But we made it to the wedding venue in good time at a beautiful tranquil place called 'Jesus Love Garden' where we witnessed the most beautiful wedding, particularly a magical barefoot dance by a gorgeous Filipina bringing the wedding bouquet to the bride.
The monsoon rains waited until the evening but the reception was under cover so all was peachy!

BB's old motorcycle crash helmet disintegrated and so he bought a new LS2 open helmet. It seems durable and has some interesting features, a decent strap, some reflective material, a quick-release visor, and a hygienic liner. BB also took this opportunity to modify the mic system on his camera and takes both items out for a road test motovlog.
BB chats about testicles, Mitsubishi Outlanders, BSA bikes, school awards, and has a nice coffee and a chat with some family as they plan a 70th birthday. He also talks about ants on his bike and the latest Chips movie featuring the California Highway Patrol.

BB and LL are asked to check out a house for a friend who had seen it online, advertised for P5000 per month. BB thinks this is overpriced, as is most property online, and so isn't expecting much.
Region 4A, especially Cavite is booming currently and property is at a premium, but BB still feels that this tiny house is overpriced and that P3500 is a fairer price.
There are much cheaper houses around. And more expensive ones too, of course. This little house is clean, enclosed and fairly secure. British Biker Philippines Expat
