@bill44ca @kantutero Idk, re Subic... You're right it's not a 24x7 smorgasbord, but it has a mellow sweetness that is not without a special charm for me. I haven't been in a year, maybe because I was seeking the former, but I'd still like to go back to BB again.

@  bill44ca : (25 May 2018 - 01:08 PM)

If you want a large variety of girls, AC; if you want to get the leftovers from a local crew of expats that grab any new talent at the handful of dumpy bars they have in BB, then you'll love Subic (and be hailed as a conquering hero on the other board LOL)

@  Kadachiman : (25 May 2018 - 12:33 PM)

just watched?

@  samthedog : (25 May 2018 - 10:40 AM)

billiard rule that's meant to say

@  samthedog : (25 May 2018 - 10:40 AM)

watched a great big guy really shouting and intimidating a a very small girl in twenty tenty bar baretto last night because she had a different rule to him. she was well pissed and he scared her shitless. bet he feels more like a man now

@  Red Horse : (24 May 2018 - 01:48 PM)

I don’t think the wife & daughter are too high on the mongering trips (to be frank) but I think this one I’m broadcasting. Exactly what is the harm if I buy some upland catfish farm in Thailand? What’s the sense of getting bogged down in one area?

@  Red Horse : (24 May 2018 - 01:42 PM)

Just a trip to BKK/Patts & MNL/AC. Could say I’m visiting ex-military friends. I’m not but on Phils side, I could just say wonder why so many soldiers & sailers retire I’m PI?

@  Red Horse : (24 May 2018 - 01:38 PM)

OMG! Just got the best idea for a huge worldwide windup/advanced 1st tier level trolling on Twitter & Facebook...trip in Asia to al the most sordid places but Gee, I hope I don’t run into the wrong sorts of people!

@  Red Horse : (24 May 2018 - 01:15 PM)

Simple Q. Might be worth a thread. A guy wants or needs to buy some land. Thai or Phils? Willing to shack up/get married. Fish farm, carabao, rice, pineapples,whatever. Where is best?

@  bill44ca : (24 May 2018 - 01:46 AM)

@Kant Handful of Dumpy Bars is funny, perhaps Tee Shirts with that above Subic Pic LOL

@  grahamuk : (23 May 2018 - 10:05 PM)

When she's down to one a day ?

@  JPDIII : (23 May 2018 - 06:23 PM)

After how many men being serviced is a girl labeled a "leftover". I don't go to AC looking for a cherry girl !

@  kantutero : (23 May 2018 - 05:23 PM)

If you want a large variety of girls, AC; if you want to get the leftovers from a local crew of expats that grab any new talent at the handful of dumpy bars they have in BB, then you'll love Subic (and be hailed as a conquering hero on the other board LOL)

@  bkk7 : (23 May 2018 - 08:27 AM)

i'm guessing then Manila/QC/Makati isn't worth it at all? BKK to PP tonight then 2 more days. can't wait!

@  stew : (23 May 2018 - 08:03 AM)

Subic retirement home for mongers

@  bill44ca : (23 May 2018 - 07:08 AM)

I agree AC hands down over Subic. If you had a couple months in AC or even a month then you might want 2 nights in Subic

@  bkk7 : (23 May 2018 - 05:57 AM)

thanks for the advice! trying to PM someone bc i just bought the discount card but am forbidden from viewing profiles or PMing

@  Kadachiman : (23 May 2018 - 05:56 AM)

you can read some trip reports on here about AC vs Subic vs other places.....and I think you will conclude that AC is the perfect destination for a 5 day trip

I’m planning to cook for my girlfriend when I visit her. I met my girlfriend about 3 years ago through a foreign matchmake tour and I have been visiting her from time to time. Next month, I’m planning to visit her again. She loves cooking for me whenever we get together but this time, I really want to cook a Filipino dish for her. My problem is that I’m not sure what dish would be best and easiest to prepare. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Just a question- they eat Filipino foods every day , why not cook something from your country? They love to try new things and you will never be able to cook a Filipino dish like they cook it. My girl loves to try new things. LoL. No harm intended, just a suggestion

Ask her what province she is from and what is the favorite dish for that area. Once you have the name of the dish(s) then google is your friend for an ingredients list and probably can find a video on line showing you how to prepare.

You could combine a gift and cooking by buying a pressure cooker and prepare beef adobo.

Local beef is hard to get tender and most house holds don't have a pressure cooker.

I know it was an instant hit with my wife !

Lumpia, its hard to f that up. Adobo and africana are pretty simple as well. Then there is always fried fish and rice, too easy.

And rice, lots of rice.

I agree about cooking them something from your country.   I disagree about not being able to cook something like they do.    Or I should say, you should be able to cook it and they like it.   The internet is a wonderful thing.  You can do an internet search and find numerous recipes for different Filipino foods.

Been married to a pinay for more than a decade. Even though I’ve witnessed her cook numerous Filipino dishes, the only thing I am allowed to cook is rice. I’m quite capable in the kitchen, but know that I would never get it “just right”.

There are subtle differences in how certain Filipino dishes are cooked from region to region, so simply googling a recipe doesn’t ensure it’s the style they are used to. You might end up cooking something that is not prepared the way they’re used to.

My wife’s family (especially my father/brother-in-laws) are amused that I actually cook complete meals, it’s not a typical male trait.

Stick with what you know and are comfortable with. Filipinos are always sharing food. Your offer to cook and share will mean more than what you actually prepare.

Unless you are actually a cook or do cooking as a hobby, why bother?  This probably won't impress anyone.  If you do cook as a hobby cook something that is your specialty.  The special dish might impress them but doing the cooking wont impress anyone.  This is the PHL.

I disagree.   It just might impress them.    Hell, they are impressed(or surprised) if you speak a little bit of Tagalog.
