Recommended Posts

I've changed the itinerary of this trip , yes theses a woman involved lol , I've decided to have the expat experience of staying in a condo , I've rented a one bed condo for two-week, I'm having a great time trying to figure out what to buy in the mall food wise , it's all feeling like a real adventure  

Tomorrow I'll take her to the beach ,then on Sunday,  I get to meet mum and dad,  keeping an open mind at the moment , but this place is growing on me

Had a great day on the beach and I met her kids , yes I got to pay for it but I spend more on a carton of flags back home , it also felt good to see them all enjoying themselves.

Her daughter came out with the question , " have you slept with him yet mama ? It was in bisaya so thatbine flew over my head  , they do have a different attitude to sex lol , I think there is some sort of family protocol where she has to get their approval before we commence a full relationship

I got positive feed back from the kids much to gf,s delight , I guess I'm getting interviewed at the moment hehe , tomorrow is the big test , I get to go to mum and dad's for dinner , mum's got a PhD in English and is a pastor ,sisters a doctor and so is her hubby , dad by all accounts is a hard grafting father ,the lady herself is a minor government official in charge of 80 people

I genuinely like this lady , 

The one complaint that I have so far is that the TV programs are pants , fortunately  I don't watch a lot of telly

If you wanted to make the move more permanent, you can get yourself fixed up with Sky/Cignal/Netflix etc

Who ever mentioned  the bit about durian was correct lol , I think it comes second after God down here, my thoughts are moving towards a permanent  move down here but I can't see that happening for about 6 to 9 month's 

I've met a good woman , and I'm enjoying a short stay in a condo,  her mum lives in the jungle , her mum was proudly showing me the various  trees that they have planted , I asked about snakes ,she said, it's safe except for Cobras and some kind of big snake lol

Her mum is as sharp as a razor ,she tried to throw in the loaded question but I caught it

Looks like you struck gold, don't till anybody where you found it!

Money ain't everything, but in Philippines status goes along way :thumbsup:

She asked me who was my gf in the Philippines, in was warned not to admit to having a full relationship until she got approval from her mum , if I had said that Grace was my girl friend ,that as unconfirmed later would have been seen as an admission of infidelity 

The family are a traditional philipino family , they are all university educated professionals
