I think there are Filipinas and there are surplus Filipinas. I think with age you are loving the surplus Filipinas. There is an over abundance of Filipinas coming from the 'baby factories'.

The Asian men comment will get its own blogpost.

My gut feeling is that the ills of the Philippines is tied to its population being out of control. Curb the population and let's see if there will be love for older men.

Quite an accurate description of the majority of older westerner/young filipina couples I have seen.

Well, I finally got a look at the more upper class areas in the fort and the crowd there. I attended a b-day event with Mguy at a gathering of upper (?) class fashion people and their social circle. It was kind of interesting, the people were friendly enough, and the restaurant was chill but not much conversation was made with the guests. I think it's because they were probably wondering just who the f-ck we were. I told mguy that our presence will occupy precisely 4 seconds of their thought processes after we leave before they forget about us entirely and that we should not feel self conscious about being there.

We didn't exactly stick out like sore thumbs but it was odd being around a pretty intimate group of friends and not knowing anyone there. Well, mguy knew the b-day girl and I guess that was all that was necessary. I chatted with b-day girl a little at Prive and she was a pretty nice person. I also talked with a few of the other people in that group and they seemed alright too.

We went to Prive afterward and despite having all the trappings of being this exclusive night spot it felt kind of touristy inside. We went with the same b-day party group so got on a guest list. There were a few groups of Rooshv looking white guys with gelled hair doing the usual pick up type activity by hovering around each table with girls. There seemed to be more guys than women here though. Mguy went wandering around midway through ;). However, the women seemed pretty open at this spot. I was just standing around holding a drink and a couple girls actually started chatting me up. No actual pick up was done this night though.

All in all, there are some similarities with Thai night life but I feel that even though the ratio felt off here and it felt touristy the overall scene felt more "open" to me. It was easier to chat up or be chatted up by girls. In Bangkok the social circles can be way more closed off with Thais tightly huddled around their little table and bottles and as a foreigner you better speak good thai or know people otherwise you will get shut down fast by the vast majority of women in clubs.

Maybe the people we were with had something to do with that though too. We were in a decent spot occupying a couch and table right beside the bar.

========

All in all my feelings about Filipinos in general hasn't changed much. I do find most people here to be pleasant enough. I still haven't encountered shitty attitudes up close and personal or over the top pretension.

I met 3 Filipinas in Bangkok. One was middle class and smart but not that attractive. Kind of girl you should seek out if you want a reliable wife and some kids. One was working class and I'm not entirely sure what she was doing in Bangkok. The final one was Filipino-Chinese. She was fun and reasonably attractive, but she has the shopping gene. Falcon also met this one.

I'd worry that with so many Filipinas you'd run out of conversation after 2-3 minutes. With Bangkok bar girls once I'd established where they were from that was pretty much it.

I found in Thailand that the middle class Thai women have next to no interest in dating foreigners. Definitely not the same as in China.

With the large number of ladyboys in Thailand and the Philippines I guess this has made a surplus of women.

I also heard the Phillies has a large gay population, not sure if this is true.

I would think the the OFWs and no divorce have more to do with surplus women then ladyboys.

The large flamboyant gay, along with the closeted gay populations probably is the Pacific Islander legacy which Catholicism and Islam could not overcome before international standards changed making it okay

I'm pretty sure those types were upper class. Imagine hipster types in a third world setting.

I have a vid of our club scene. Edited you and me and bday girl ofcourse.

Prive according to friend has gotten a change in the clientele.. these happen to "upscale" clubs as word gets out and people get in the scene.. so the clientele moves on to the next.

Mguy actually isn't the first person i've met on this forum. I'll leave it up to you to guess who the first was. :lol:

It's true that when Rock was in BKK I had reservations about meeting anyone from this site then. That was at least a couple years ago though. I don't think I would mind meeting Rock or even you now for that matter.
