I taught English, yoga classes to children and even handled the Marketing Department of a western-owned company while in Vietnam, oh did I mention that I won a Vietnamese reality TV show? All of my teaching, volunteering and freelancing jobs have been through my own research, resourcefulness, and commitment.So don’t tell me that we Filipinas just stay at home, waiting for our partners to feed us!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.
Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!
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!
After completing my economics degree (in UPLB), I worked in the Middle East for four years before starting this journey.
I funded my South East Asia backpacking trip with my savings then when Jon and I started living together, we always shared our expenses, from food, rent and everything (that’s the British way, in Tagalog “! When I met Jon, he had empty pockets and a 0 broken down motorbike.
If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
