My friend, Perry Gamsby, has spent nearly 20 years experiencing the Philippines. He has been involved in several businesses including a bar on Malapscua island and the family piggery, been involved with property purchases, lived in the city and in the boondocks, worked plotting sites of interest for Philippines EZ maps, worked for an advertising company and has appeared in promotional videos. Perry is an expert in the Filipino martial art, ARNIS, and has taken part in competitions in the Philippines. He has experienced the schooling system, medical system, transport system and life in general throughout the Philippines. Perry has been in out of love many times but is now happily married to a beautiful Filipina and has several children.
I have visited Perry when he was living in the boondocks. I have visited Perry when he was living in the city, where he conned me into helping paint a new boat he was building. In 2005, Perry and I got together to make a video about dealing with traffic in Cebu City. It is called DEFENSIVE DRIVING and is on page 2 of my videos.
Perry has written 6 books about the Philippines. If you would like to benefit from his vast knowledge, click on the book links above. A full description of each book will be available after you click.
