Most Filipina are Scammers?

I don’t think so.

Most that I find interested in me are. I have a theory as to why that happens and I discuss in my latest blog post. I think most Filipina are wonderful women. So what goes wrong, is it just me? It isn't just me and that’s why so many men get the wrong impression about the Philippines and Filipina. 

Find out what I think it happening and read about my most recent romantic misadventures here:

New Girlfriend or so I hope. Her name is Apriljoy and she’s old enough to make her own choices. She’s 21.

Rusty Ferguson, you have been accused of cradle robbing. How do you plea?  Guilty with a smile on my face.

Now all you folks that want to tell me how terrible I am, feel free. You’ll get one chance. 

I have no idea how long this will last but we will find out.

I took this picture a few days ago and we had just met, so this is the first picture taken of her.

Elderly Filipino must beg on the streets of Cebu City in order to survive. Spare some peso's if you can. Taken this week, across the street from my hotel. I saw him there a few weeks ago but someone came to visit and she had my full attention so I didn't get to get his photo. I'm very happy with this one.

Taken on Sanciangko Street in Downtown Cebu City.

And for the Fil-Am folks that like the challenge me on G plus, I don't tell what I give, the right hand should not tell the left hand what it gave.

The +Bob Woodruff Foundation main program seems to be Stand up for Heros. It is a page worth following.

Our mission is to ensure injured veterans and their families are thriving long after they return home.  That’s why we find and fund innovative programs in communities where veterans, their families and caregivers live and work.  That’s how we tackle the problems that can prevent our veterans from fulfilling their dreams for the next chapter of their lives.

Human Trafficking of Filipinos by Filipinos
For some Filipinos, the abuses by employers in the Philippines resembles slavery in my mind. What do you think? I would love to hear from Filipinos.  Those that actually live or grew up here.

What I’ve been learning from Filipinas about their work environment is alarming. Domestic helpers are often beaten or struck by their employers. Perhaps most are not, I don’t know. I do know many people that would not treat their domestic helpers that way. I know a warehouse worker that doesn’t get overtime pay and usually works seven days a week. She had her salary withheld for two months because of a two peso mistake we think. She was never told why.

Honestly, I don’t really care too much about most the youngsters that grew up in the USA or other Western nation. I’m not Filipino but I know more about this place than nearly all of you. Most of you are abusive and Filipinos do not act the way you do. I know you want to show Filipino pride but you really should find a way to do it that doesn’t embarrass Filipinos that live in the Philippines. They won’t tell you that, they are too polite. That’s why I don’t care what most have to say, I’ve seen enough rudeness from that group to last me a lifetime.

The photograph is of a Filipino that isn’t employed but has several ways of making money. It kind of seems like he’s running the street to me.   His name is Tagalog.

Ripples of Love: Hilary Overton
Today I ran into an expat that is leaving a positive mark here in Cebu. Yes, it is that rare female expat. She is a midwife and I believe her husband also lives here in Cebu.

She has delivered thousands of babies or perhaps her clinic here in Cebu has. Her clinic is called Glory Reborn. If you are in a position to do so, please visit her website and if possible assist them financially. No need to say you can't, I can't either. If you share this post you will also be helping. That is what I'm doing,  Just sharing.

I'm feeling motivated to create a shared circle now. I haven't in months. Now i have a cause. :)

Remember, A lot of people doing a little bit together can have a major impact. 

Her website:

I took the photo from her FaceBook page. I'm not going to link to it because I want you to go her her clinic's website and donate. I hope she and her husband don't mind my little "theft".
