He was a loner and saved most of his money, bought a nice big brick house and furnished it with quality furniture, kitchen and other expensives appliances,etcetera.
He lost his job as a dieasal fitter at the mining company and ended up marrying a Filipino.
After all, it's no wonder both countries are now trying to eat one another. But suggesting that the only scamming lying Filipinos are usually bar girls is total bullshit..frankly a cover story used by other Filipinos outside Philippines. Again same deal, she needs money to pay bills, medical expenses, ...
I knew enough to know if we were being scammed or not. Maybe it's more prevalent in the big cities, I see less of it in the province, but I see the whole scamming of a little more money here and there from some.
The people who were taking care of my grandmother before she passed away were stealing from her.
It sad to see so much anger toward people in general, but especially of those that are of my brethren. They are pretty much the same as with the mentality of the people. It will start when landing with the conning taxi drivers charging you 5 to 20 times the first ride. I met a Pinay and like the other guys her I ignored the advice of friends, family and many stories I've heard of the years. Short guy but covered with tattos andhe looked like he'd taken steroids to get to the size he was.
I'm not saying it's not justified, but it still hurts. First country is full of evil, greedy, hateful and aggressive hypocrites. For me, the country has even lost its "friendly" edge. A true life dictator, a murderer, people getting shot on the basis of denunciations with no proofs. Well after 4 months and the usual bs stories of her not having any money for student fees etc meds, and me stupidly giving her money over that time period I got a nasty surprise one night on Skype when her irate tattooed Chinoy bf popped up a video call. He threated to kill me if I ever laid foot in the Philipines.
