a pinoy retiring in mexicoHola to all my kababayans.

Thank you for visiting AdoboRepublic.net – living like a local in Mexico website, where I talk about myself as a Filipino living, retiring or snowbirding in Mexico and of course, I also discuss one of my favorite subject at present – learning Mexican-Spanish.

Mi nombre es Manuel, born and raised in the Philippines, moved to and lives in Canada and was now making plans to move again ===> to Mexico.

Canadian moving to the PhilippinesSince finding out more about Mexico starting in 2013, I decided to make her my home away from Canada, specially in the winter months. And I am seriously considering living out the rest of my life there, as well.

As I write this (June 2018), me and my son had since made the first steps in our plan to relocate to the country by hiring a lawyer in Mexico.

But because we are so over eager to hasten our move, we at the same time applied for a residency visa at the Mexican Consulate in Canada.

So far, we have not heard anything yet from the Consulate (it’s more than two weeks now) but whatever happens with our residency applicatioin in any case, I think we have access to another option thru steps that our Mexican lawyer had advised us.

Like it or not, here we come, Mexico!
