Philippines rocks

Postby FCF4L » Fri Feb 08, 2013 4:24 pm

good food, good weather cute women in every shade

Any guy from 18-80 can do better there with women than in the west. People who down mallate/ermita/metro manilia need to actually live htere nad have friends who are phillipino and aslo expats show them around. Any city takes time, as far as only old loser guys dating pinays: I firsrt started going to and living in the phils at 31. Im 36 now my gf is 33 and all my exes there have been around my age.
Also the food is good, if you don't like phillipino food then eat: thai korean, japanese,chinese, indonesian or american food all readily available there.

Accomodations: You cant get a shit hole room in the phils for $6 usd a night an ok one with air cond for $12 and a 2-3 star for $20- $35 usd I've stayed in them all, better to rent a apartment for $100 usd a month. If you're going to hang out in angles city or hooker bars in malatte/emrita or edsa entertainmet complex 24/7 then of course you'll get a warped view of the country. The main issues are corruption and security issues in the phils. The women can be average up to quite hot ranging from really dark to almost white with either the normal asian little pug nose or the more aqualine nose that denotes spanish blood line. Most of the guys on here who always say no picture of a pinay on here is hot or there are no hot women in the phils are the same type of guys back in the usa who will see a super hot blonde on tv and say she's not that hot or her tits aren't big enough ect. when in reality the chick they are downing would not date then anyway.

if you have a bad time in the phils it's because you have no game yet or don't know anyone. you just need to learn the game the way it is played in the phils it dosen't take log before you'll have you pick of cute single women. So if the only action you get in two weeks in country is pfp, then yea I can understand beign salty. So get out of the bars and into other pick up spots. example everywhere else :), you'll have to say hi first though, then ask where she is from and most importantly what she does for a living. Any pinay with a job is gold as you avoid alot of other issues.

Good post.

Majority of the new posts which trash the Philippines (and not see the good side) are from those who have been mingling with their pinoy/pinay counterparts, of course all they will see are trash, at the end of the day, each of us reaps what we sow.

Agreed. I have met excellent people, men and women alike, in Davao and Samal. Perhaps Angeles and some of the seedier areas of Metro Manila have a different social footprint because they cater sexual tourists or foreigners on wafer-thin budgets.

True. Its funny how like attracts alike. Go to whoretown/ghetto what do they expect to see?

I've been staying on and off the Philippines a few years now managing and acquiring businesses, as a result I've met the normal pinoys and pinays, they are not perfect but they are far from the stereotype. One girl even met me to share some parsley flakes (which are difficult to find on the metro) and made me home cooked congee when I was sick, yet Winston says all pinoys/pinays are greedy and won't share/give. Where else in the world would a very busy woman be that sweet and caring for an acquaintance? These guys gotta see the real Philippines IMO.

I gotta agree w yr positive tone here. I do find Filipinos in many of the areas I've traveled to around the country to be generally friendly, easy and pleasant to deal with, with humble and soft spoken behavior. I've read a lot about how greedy and money hungry they are. Yet I've had the pleasure to meet many honest ones who work hard at whatever their work or family position is with modest expectations. No wonder they are so popular as employees all over the world.

I sometimes complain about how the people look but really, its more a height issue than anything else. There are plenty of cute and attractive people and many even have light skin. Fly Cebu Pacific on any domestic flight and u will probably find all the flight attendants to be cute to hot.

In Luzon, I've met people with jobs who make their own money (not getting rich but anywhere from 16-60 K / per month which is respectable) and still act like decent and down to earth people.

I read what u wrote about Cebu people being infamous as scammers, 2 faced, and all. I'll be spending some time in Cebu and see how true this seems from personal observations.

I've generally also had great experiences with people from the likes of CGY and Davao, both in Mindanao.

As for Angeles, even tho its so notorious and all, I found it to be a lot softer than other whore hotspots in the world such as Pattaya or about anything similar in LatAm. A lot of the people there seem pretty nice and honest in spite of what the place is. It's just the bad apples (which or course are attracted to such a scene) which spoil the reputation. And what other P4P bar district in the world has 'cherry girls' lol.

Winston's rants are the product of someone who spent 99% of his in country time in smoky area of Angeles and dealt with people who were either in the biz or were leery of all the foreigners in town (automatic association as monger). U really can't get an objective perspective on the deeper layers of a country just from the bowels of its largest whore district.
