If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.
So don’t tell me that we Filipinas just stay at home, waiting for our partners to feed us!
Even if someone does decide to remain at home to look after the family and home, that’s a personal choice which also involves a lot of hard work. Again, it may happen in some cases, but before marrying their Filipina wife, the foreigner must already have met the family, right? My parents are both Professional; my younger sister is also a Dentist while my younger brother is about to finish his University degree.
The only real difference is the higher value of their currency in the world, which just makes their own countries very expensive to live in and other countries cheaper to visit!
But this only works if they earn money in one of the expensive countries. And yes, poverty does exist in western countries, it just doesn’t the same impact in a news headline as a photo of a small brown child with flies on her face!
Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas who have this reason but not in most cases!
I was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan (well, I’ve met Jonathan while travelling! Jonathan and I are both long-term travellers and us living and settling down in the UK couldn’t be further from our minds.
Unless they slipped it in the wedding vows without him noticing, ‘…to have and to hold, to pay Lola’s medical bills…wait, WHAT THE F#%! Meaning, if you want to do something, you work for it, and you shouldn’t depend on anyone else to just give it to you!
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!
