My wife is from Philippines. I can get a yearly subscription to be sent to her parents home for only $85.00.
In Dubai we have The Rake Middle East. It is sold at $10.88 per issue. It is basically copy and past from the Singaporean edition (60%) and the balance is local publishing. Not as good as The Rake Singapore,
A few months is nothing, you need a minimum of 1 year of full consistent work. Basically you need to increase volume until you need to find confortable with 8-10 sets of 8-10 reps with 2.30 rest with that base you max will increase for sure.
