"The airline employees kept whispering and smiling, mentioning "movie star", "guapo", "'galing, etc." <--- that part was entertaining... especially the "galing" comment... it's mind boggling why they said that... what were they referring to? were you doing back flips in the airport? were you moving like jagger?Did you not find it entertaining?
"toilet that needs water to flush," <--- this one is entertaining too... i haven't been to the US so I wouldn't know what americans use when they flush their toilets... whisky? vodka? crude oil? aviation fuel?
in fairness to him, he's obviously unfamilar with PEx, but the PinoyExchange may have given him a different meaning.
and the "galing" could have meant "from" rather than "excellent performer".
the water for flushing baffles me also. hahah. waterless bowls like the waterless urinals???
baka kasi kailangan pa ng timba at tabo para makapag flush. sa kanila kasi de pihit lang.
okay, if hinde "from" at talagang adjective yung "galing", baka "galing magdala ng damit" or "galing magbuhat ng bagahe". hahaha! may porter talent pa pala.
Why have you not been to America? A plane ticket and tourist visa are reasonably priced.

Rest assured that I am not what you would call privileged and well to do simply because I am in the United States. My Chinese father's family had a successful electronics store for almost 50 years in the Philippines. I have learned to always be humble and to always be thankful for the Philippines and its people. Without the Philippines, my Chinese side of the family would still be living in poverty in China. For the past 100 years, they have become middle class in the Philippines. I refuse to look down upon anyone that has less means than myself. I am on this forum generally to be helpful towards others, perhaps even offer insight into different things. I also would like to form a greater social network and exchange stories and information with others. I will be buying a small condominium unit in Metro Manila because I know that I cannot live in Seattle or any other place in America when I get too old to take care of myself. Also, this place will be used for relatives there that would like to attend graduate or professional school. My plan is to help them by paying for their expenses. Contrary to what people think, not everyone in a family of well to do people are all equally well to do. Some of my relatives, yes on the Chinese side, need help to pay for Ateneo Law or a joint JD/MBA program. I encourage any of my relatives to study whatever they want to study including literature. I use the above simply as an example because there is one relative that would like to attend Ateneo after undergraduate studies at another college in Manila.
So you mean to say, when there is a celebration for Vietnam veterans, gangsters from all over can come too since gangster do violence too just like those who went to Vietnam? You don't seem to understand the requirment set by the thread title, the couple must be PExers. Not just any pair who met in the internet, not a dating site for maid order brides, not chatrooms, not some other online forum but one specific site.The above referring to a sick dog is a non-sequitur comparison. Pinoy exchange and online chat rooms share the common theme of potential online romance.
Yup! You just included what they said because what they did is completely related to your love affair. It has a relevance to the romantic story you wrote.As for the female airline employees, I'm not sure why they behaved the way that they did.
Because I'm just a poor pinoy. Our toilets don't have mechanisms to flush the waste with a flick of the hand, I'd rather use the fare money and buy an advanced toilet like what you have in America. I'm sure I'm gonna enjoy using that flush for over a month! Might become my hobby for life!Why have you not been to America? A plane ticket and tourist visa are reasonably priced.

Now why would I want to spend some time and risk indigestion with a wannabe writer whose composition I really did not like?
BTW, do you even realize it's such a dumb idea to post personal details in the web?
