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!
British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls!
Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.
We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?
When I quit my job in the Middle East to start my backpacking journey, aside from the other reasons and lies I was telling myself and people around me about why I wanted to leave my corporate life, I actually left because I just wanted to have more time to understand myself, to love me and just to be with myself!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 was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan (well, I’ve met Jonathan while travelling! Jonathan and I are both long-term travellers and us living and settling down in the UK couldn’t be further from our minds.We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines.
