It's not right, but as a Canadian with Filipino background, I'm a little hurt by these words, even though some of it is true. You are better off to Thailand, Vietnam or even Malaysia. Putting your heart there, you might as well give it to the dogs.
It sad to see so much anger toward people in general, but especially of those that are of my brethren. They are pretty much the same as with the mentality of the people. It will start when landing with the conning taxi drivers charging you 5 to 20 times the first ride. I met a Pinay and like the other guys her I ignored the advice of friends, family and many stories I've heard of the years. Short guy but covered with tattos andhe looked like he'd taken steroids to get to the size he was.
After all, it's no wonder both countries are now trying to eat one another. But suggesting that the only scamming lying Filipinos are usually bar girls is total bullshit..frankly a cover story used by other Filipinos outside Philippines. Again same deal, she needs money to pay bills, medical expenses, ...
Classic Filipino response to criticism of Filipinos. Again..internet is full of stories of people being involved with Filipinos in various situations including work..."nice good pinoys" who have been scammed and lied to. Indeed how would you know anything about me or my situation? After twelve months of chatting to her and getting to know her and you know skype calls ;) I flew over to see her for 2 weeks. These girls are ruthless, vicious, selfish, hard, emotionally cold, bad attitudes, pathological liars, they will play you against ay least 2, 3 or more guys at the same time.
Most of the Filipino guys I knew around, I was related to or I thought of as family friends.
Although, some of the language used here, I find extremely disappointing, I have my guard up with people in the Philippines constantly.
She said hi and we chatted for awhile then we went offline.
I am a Filipina, and I simply don't engage to liar and immature people whether foreigner or not, I guess what my mentor says was all true. Well I met a plain girl 26 you and she seemed nice enough.after two months 1 night she said she was going to Palawan for work. She flew to Manila, then onto Palawan showed me photos of her getting on and off the arrives at her hotel with girlfriend work collegue and next day I work up and said "hi" as usual ...
When in the Philippines visiting in 2012, I don't think I have been asked for more money, tips and insistence on this is how things are done here, type of deals.
My parents gave my husband, my daughter and I guidelines for time we were not with them.
No love, not even the slightest sign of any kind of empathy. I grew up around mostly white people, that's what surrounded me.
