Kach often tells me that although many Filipinos are very patient, if you push them too far, they could really hurt you.Of course, I think she’s probably just trying to scare me, but would you take that risk with the woman who watches you sleep?!So there you have it: 5 things I’ve learned after almost two incredible years together.All I can say is this – whether it be eating pork fat for breakfast, god-awful singing or embarrassing bargaining techniques, life is a whole lot more interesting this way.A lot of foreigners come to find a Filipina to love and care for them. we know a lot of foreigners come to take advantage of Filipina girls (that hurts me to, it is sick and I dream of the day that changes). In some cases people will be so vocal about it, that it can be uncomfortable.I understand that it would be common to assume that I would be here due to a Filipina. I will always take time to respond to people who make those comments in a positive way.
One thing that shocked me, however, was the choice of breakfast food.They believe that is the biggest reason why I should want to be here. I explain the amazing things that make me want to be here and parts of this culture that inspire me so much.That it would be the number one reason why a foreigner would ever want to call the Philippines home. I guess it is part of the reason why I get scared to date a Filipina.No, seriously it’s awesome, Filipina grandmas have magic food powers!– Lots of meat, marinated in vinegar, soy sauce and garlic…with rice! ), with sugar and salt, then fried till crispy…with rice!
