I think the Illocanos used to be head hunters. I've heard there used to be some in Mindanao too as recently as the 1950's, but that is just a rumor. In both cases, they gave up the practice entirely.

If you really want to find some, you may have to go to Kalimantan provice of Indonesia on Borneo. The Dayaks there did some head hunting a few years ago as part of a feud with settlers from other islands.

I had the same thought - try Borneo.

The elite head hunters are over in Iraq. I heard a rumor that they are relocating to western Mindanao soon.

Only five years late with this reply but for anyone else out there:

Tread carefully if head hunted. There are companies that need specialist help for a given project and dont much care how they fill the gap as long as they get the right person in. There is a difference between 'head-hunted' and 'poached' however.

Be absolutely sure that there will be work after the project has ended. You will be an expensive addition to their workforce and someone will be looking for reasons to lose you.

There are a number of approaches employers (clients) can take: One is to have work that utilises your expertise in which case your employment will continue. The other is to move you to a project where its a case of 'sink or swim'. Ive seen any number of drownings. Going from 'irreplacable' to 'unwanted' takes a lot of handling and no reference from your employer is going to put them in a bad light of give a hint of manipulation.

Ive been lucky in that Ive always managed to land on my feet running. There are plenty of people brighter and sharper than myself that did not do so well.

Yes .. they are ISIS/ISIL in Iraq. If you join the US Army .. you will probably get a chance to hunt for them. Most S/E Asia headhunters retired many years ago.

      I would use my 3G connection to all basic surfing and especially to be able to use viber/skype anytime anywhere. To seek WiFi spots always when in urgent need for communication is just not for me. I will be most liking to use small mobile 3G router, so I can connect with my phone or laptop.

      Nothing in Hatters yet, certainly no cameras at traffic lights; that would be a good idea.

      Hi Mikki, I may help. But first tell me which device you tend to use 3G with? And what are your needs for 3G service (website surfing; viber/skype communication; watching movies...etc.)?
