We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do.After completing my economics degree (in UPLB), I worked in the Middle East for four years before starting this journey.
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.
After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!
UPDATE: We’re engaged and getting married next year!
I will be getting a Long-term visa to visit UK but I’m not interested in getting a British passport or citizenship as what others are assuming because we don’t have any plans to live in the UK, as long as my future children will have dual citizenship then that’s great for us!
If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do?
Ahh western-style economics, making sure we always have someone poor enough to sweep the streets!
I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best!

This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!
Here are the most common misconceptions that I want to clear up – We would love to hear other Filipinas’ stories so please feel free to share your experience below !
Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls!
We share the cleaning in our house, but funnily Jon is better and faster at it than I am!
Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real life experience and responsibility before leaving school.
