Say you get a Heart Evangelista. It basically assures of the masa votes. That's why they command very high prices, they get a political bump. Beauty and Utility!

There aren't that many girls of that pedigree, really.

Also, it has to be a mix. If a pedigree becomes too "white" then they lose out the mass appeal and thus seen as a foreigner, thus not marketable.

Hmm true...didn't think about the "political value" of a top babe. In the Phils, showbiz and politics go hand in hand like in no other country, it seems. I looked up Chiz Escudero on Wikipedia, he does seem to be a genuinely smart and charismatic man, perhaps it's real love :)

agreed...there not too many girls who are pretty and have such a pedigree. Some of us are not
so impressed with such a "pedigree"...one of the advantages of being a foreigner I suppose.
The Philippines is ruled by the parasite class generally, and being a social climber and politician has
little to recommend itself outside of the crass corruption it usually is.

>>>If you are outside of the model, you have the advantage of finding a pretty girl and looking
at the quality of her heart, not where she stands within the ranks of the so called elites in Luzon.
Politics in the Philippines is vulgar and crude- a popularity contest with little regard to the competence
of the individual. The primary target is access and control of money flows so that you can steal some of it. Kind of reminds me of...the USA, where a fecklessly incompetent "community organizer"
gets elected. In the Philippines at least, he might have a hot wife, unlike Obama's cardboard wookie.

Outwest @ a safe distance from Luzon....lol

OK so I've never been to the Phillies but I met another Filipina here in Bangkok last night. Falcon also met her and she was wowed by his Tagalog! She is Filipino-Chinese, and really nice. Is it easy to find such girls in the Phillies? Or are they hiso and not interested in foreigners. She was obviously pretty well educated, spoke great English and had money. I found her on wechat.

I met a "pure" Filipina before, but I think Filipino-Chinese girls are hotter.

I've only been to around the Manila area, and it didn't seem as bad as I have read about sometimes. I was with my girlfriend, though, so I don't know if I could have gotten much interest on the street if I had been there alone.

I really want to visit other parts of the Philippines. I've been thinking about Cebu lately. I'm still slowly learning some Tagalog, so I want to put it to good use. It would be really nice to know a place where I could go and be away from foreigners and well-known areas. Some provincial town or something. Every capital city in the world is going to have more westernized, uptight people (even though Manila didn't seem too uptight, really...)

Filipino-Chinese are considered Filipino. If you live in Manila, especially in QC, you can't really differentiate them. Saying one is Filipino-Chinese is just an act of formality.

There is no hyphen here.

If you are heading to Cebu...learning Visayan might be a better bet....but really, as others have covered, there is not much need...though it might be amusing to be able to actually understand when
one Filipina confides in another in your presence that she wished she could make a "white" baby with you...lol

Isn't Visayan just a dialect of Tagalog though? Well, I will at least keep learning Tagalog. I could see myself living in the Philippines one day. My girlfriend didn't let go of me for one second while I was there, so I wonder how much girls would talk to me or flirt with me if i went alone in the future...

Ghost, learn Tagalog not Visayas. The utility is much higher.

Also I didn't know you were a young cat <30! That's great for girls here.

So that girl in the video Ellen.. I met her.

I don't think I stand a chance there. But she hangs out with the bad boy clubs. Meaning rich kids with war freak dispositions(on a power trip). They started a rumble in this club. These girls usually hang out with this dangerous crowd. They absorb these chicks.

The difference between Visayan and Tagalog isn't just a language thing (and no, one is not just a dialect of the other) its's a location and cultural thing. Many Visayans do not like Tagalog and vice versa. A Visayan girl moving to Manila is not just impacted by the big city but by a different language and culture. Visayans don't just dislike Manila cause it is big and polluted. For them it's practically another country.

Well, I don't think I've seen any resources on learning Visayan. If, from my perspective, it would be like the difference between American English and British English, I would just learn Tagalog. Well, at any rate, I would want to visit Visayas first and see what it is like first. Manila still has lots of nice girls from the looks of it, and it is the easiest and cheapest city to get to.

You will often see it referred to as Cebuano. That might be the reason you haven't seen many references. There are online Cebuano courses the last time I looked. Visayan vs. Cebuano is like your British/American English analogy. Visayan vs. Tagalog are very different languages.

Nice & on vid no less. They have beautiful smiles & cover their mouths. Ameriskanks have rotted teeth & don't bother to cover up when they cough. The world is upside down.
