Well, after months of talking about it, we finally have a departure date of June 4 to leave the U.S. for Manila. In those last two weeks, we are hoping to get as much together as we can, but are kind of stuck on what we should bring/shouldn't bring, etc. We are going to be in Manila for 6 months with our 2 children and living in furnished corporate housing in the Fort. Any tips from other Americans (or Westerners in general) about things you should have brought that you never thought about, or things you thought would need but could have left home. We're in a bit of a state of inertia right now because we've never done this before and don't really know what we should be packing. Any input is appreciated.
