@  lazybugger : (21 June 2018 - 02:35 PM)

Yeah it was torrential around 3 or 4pm

@  Calif_Man : (21 June 2018 - 02:33 PM)

Has it been raining non stop in AC? Are the streets and bars empty when it rains all day? Looking for a weather update. Cheers!

You bet. I've got my people looking into it. ;)

@  ₱20 Bill : (20 June 2018 - 03:25 AM)

Thanks, @statusquo @bill44ca @hey you. Looks like a second trip to SM may be unavoidable. Will report back if I learn differently.

@  hey you : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

i live in the province dont check anything in never had a problem maybe because they know me on sight

@  statusquo : (19 June 2018 - 11:47 PM)

@bill44ca you are correct. I said size is a concern but they might put it off to the side and that is the only place I know of in SM that does this. Never know until u ask. @hey you not a bad idea but cumbersome cheers!

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 09:13 PM)

SM grocery will not let you in with bags/packages. Purses only no backpacks. My girl had a very small backpack and they made her check it. This guy was talking about luggage.

@  hey you : (19 June 2018 - 03:37 PM)

sm problem simple dont check your bags if they think your stealing let security stop you at the door on your way out

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:17 AM)

@p20bill if you take the Southern Cross bus they drop you off at your hotel

@  bill44ca : (19 June 2018 - 05:16 AM)

In SM the storage for the grocery is very small square boxes to check your shopping bags and if you have a lot then you get 2 boxes. Not big enough for even a backpack or small suitcase

@  Iamdawon : (19 June 2018 - 12:10 AM)

woohoo alexa bliss won money in the bank then cashes in and beats nia jax and ronda rousey for WWE Raw Championship woohooo cute littlesexy thang lol

@  statusquo : (18 June 2018 - 09:45 PM)

Just the place in SM Hypermart but I am not sure about sizes. Far right as you enter the store

@  ₱20 Bill : (18 June 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Need to do some shopping when I arrive via Genesis bus and would prefer to make just one trip from SM to my place.

@  ₱20 Bill : (18 June 2018 - 07:13 PM)

Yes... its getting a bit more serious when you meet the parent(s). Im not gonna give cash...feel thats a bit impersonal and may give the
wrong impression...even 500 pesos seems over the top to me...Im doing a cheap candybar phone, canned fish, and some free silver jewellery i have no use for....things she will get alot of use out of and treasure so to speak. Id be interested to hear what you guys got your other halfs parents when you first met them.

How about an ATM card? Let's be honest, what they really want to know is can you support her daughter and the rest of the family. But, for first impressions, just bring plenty of pancit and Red Horse.

As you are posting on a monger forum can I assume the it is a mother of a bargirl?

If so then the mother has one interest and one interest only when meeting you....your money

therefore don't feel as though it is impersonal or will set the wrong impression as not giving money IS the wrong impression for her.

She knows he daughter fucks foreigners for money so she sure as hell will not feel guilty about taking money from you

Good luck

If going to her home per se, for a meal... be polite and ask to find out what you can provide for the meal? 

 

If it is anything outside the home, don't gift shit, you have already gifted plenty, because I damn well guarantee the $$ you have been giving to the girl has been filtered back to mother in some way.  Understand this, the more you offer, the MORE they will expect in the future!  

 

Just my .02 pesos worth.

My girl's an orphan I guess I'm lucky that way. Also she's not a bar girl and was a maid in a pension house when we met. She was living with her Auntie and Uncle out in a village.

When I stayed with her at their house I brought chocolates and treats for everyone and they were quite happy. Her Uncle is a carpenter so although not well off they do get by. I provided food from the market for dinner every night which set me back all of $10 for everyone. When I left after nearly 3 weeks I gave her Uncle 5000 pesos to buy a mixing board for their karaoke set up.

I'm supporting my GF in her own rented room until I go back permanently next month and her Auntie and Uncle have never asked for anything. I know my situation is different than most on here.

If its a serious relationship, your lady should be the advisory here. You can gauge a good deal from this experience about the family and your gf.
In my experiences, a cheap perfume is the bomb for Nanay's, something like Elizabeth Arden. A quality daughter from a good family will ensure you get something respectful without spending too much.
I gave a good Bourbon to the Tatay and he coveted it, it was for display and to show-off to all & sundry. Strictly not to be opened - a good sign.
Then a few cheaper things for the sisters & brothers - nothing too much.
If they are greedy, it will come on pretty fast. Always smile, remind them 'wala na pera ha' ... buy some beer & food and then think through where you are at.

...and stay in control...

Good luck.

I usually give them something they can display in their living room and magnets from places I’ve been to. I usually take them out for lunch or dinner too.

I knew enough of the parents before I met them and gave each moderate gift that fit their “hobbies.” Specifically a multi tool and a butterfly broach.

Let us know how it turns out

Not sure about a gift - just a simple gesture of bringing a cake or something to share, for snack.

But what I found worked really well was ‘Mano po’ which is a sign of respect for someone older. Take the elders right hand (in this case mum and/or dad) with your right hand and put on your forid saying ‘Mano po’.

A few cheap, small pasalubong gifts similar to you originally outlined.
Be respectful, that will count for much regardless of whether your lady is a bargirl or not, or the family knows or not. Your lady will certainly be grateful for the respect you show.
Many will say they're only interested in the money (and they may be) but they will still respond to a respectful attitude.
Be careful about setting a precedent of expectations and be wary if they seem to be trying to milk you, not saying it will happen but it does and can.
I met a lady friends family (bargirl) they were very humble and decent people, treated me as just a friend of their daughter and it cost me nothing not did they want or hint to anything.
I bought (voluntarily) some food to share (pancit canton) and we went our merry way. My friend thanked me profusely for treating her family with respect and we spent two further nights together before parting. I haven't done anything similar since because it's not my thing and I don't want to be serious with any lady.

Unfortunately I was always the elder. A gift to my first fiancée's mother was something which turned out to be very useful. I had visited them before and was shocked by their poverty. The mother was very thin and had some kind of undiagnosed condition. I guessed it may be nutrition related as most diseases were at one time even in Europe and America.


I gave her two big bottles of multi-vitamins. A couple months later the nerve condition was much improved and she gave credit to the vitamins I had given her. As a guy who knew his way around a kitchen I also gave her this peeler that I thought worked amazingly well and probably couldn't be found in Philippines. As well as a couple other kitchen tools.

Many will say they're only interested in the money (and they may be) but they will still respond to a respectful attitude......

Just because the main driver is commercial - pay for pleasure - just like any commercial/ work/ business relationship there can still be respect and sometimes even a loose friendship of convenience.

I would not choose to get up and go to work or interact with my manager/colleagues if I wasn't getting paid, but we can still respect each other and enjoy our time together. The barber  I regularly go to wants my money and I want a half decent cut, but that doesn't mean we can't respect each other and even form a loose bond over time. And etc....

 

Not mutually exclusive IMHO even with a bar girl or FL. It is a more intense, personal arrangement and more prone to getting clouded by emotions and (false) hopes on both sides. We as adults need to be watchful and protect ourselves from silly decisions and bad judgement, scams or investing to much time and money in something that may be a false hope on our part....as does she (the time bit anyway lol).

  Sure are some jaded guys on here! Not all girls and not all families are pimping their girls out to the bar. My girl and I met up in 2010 after months of chatting. We went to Colon and bought some small gifts, went to the family house, then sent her siblings to buy some food (lechon manok) drinks for the kids and rhum for the men. Then we had some fun with Karaoke and eventually my girl and I left for our hotel. They never ever asked for money or any favours. 

  The next time I went to see the family was after I flew my girl to Manila to meet me. I bought some small things that would be considered souveniers and made a short visit to the house. My girl has taken great care to keep them from putting me on the spot with requests for help. The nice thing now is that we're estranged (the family and me) and they have no idea that my girl still sees me.

  So, you see? There are girls out there that get it. Normal smart girls that have a good awareness of how strained the relationship can be after repeated money requests.
