Always asking "Pasalubong", "Gift Gift," School supplies, etc etc.I managed to stop that but let her send to her father monthly. This is the way Filipinas are - so be careful when you get one. You should also get yourself whether you've done it well. She offered everything I wanted without saying NO expecting that I will sure marry her. I met a filipina online in 2011 August- We spent a lot of time on skype -and then we decided to meet up in Singapore. And then again 10 more days the same year December for Christmas again in Singapore.I also find a lot of them very selfish, they say in their culture its all about family and children, which is how it should be, but when I point out to them that if that is the case why are they throwing rubbish everywhere, polluting rivers and the air, no one really cares about the future of their grandchildren here, to me that's just another lie. Her family wanted a big wedding in Philippines and the budget given was a little over ,000.
Back in the late 1990's, my best friend lived in the PI as a retired fellow and had a very realistic attitude toward the country, in the sense that he recognized that lying (as we Westerners understand it) is part of the culture. But he provided the capital to start a small business and, once the business was up and running, he was disappeared. Unfortunately many of the comments on here about Filipinos being liars are true, especially in business, so never part with any money until your absolutely sure. Just hanging relationships with her father, sister (with whom she was living) and two brothers.
My wife (a Filipina) and I suspect that his Filipino partner realized that the inflows of start-up capital were ending and had him murdered. I have lived here a while now and my naivety has cost me dearly. As per her - she has not met her father or talk to him for years as he was living with another woman after their mother's death.
