I have been doing some experimenting around on this slogan, “It’s More Fun in the Philippines,” and I realize that it is completely bullshit. Yet this slogan has been around and unchanged for years, and somehow it hasn’t failed to attract some of us fellow foreigners to this land of contradictory mottos. In my experience of telling a good lie (when needed), I know that a lie will only fly if there is at least ‘SOME’ truth to it.
In every aspect of Philippines, I haven’t yet came across ANY logical explanation as to why it’s more fun, and what countries is it more fun than. Obviously, it’s more funner here than those unknown and undeveloped countries that knows how to keep their mouth shut. There is a difference between living in a fucked up a country and knowing your country if fucked up, than living in a fucked up country, and thinking it’s number 1 (Philippines).
I realized why I wasn’t ever able to see this ‘FUN’ is because of my relationship status. I will admit, I have been doing some experimenting around (wink-wink) and been living the single life lately, as if I have no wife, and I saw how much more brighter things were. No, I did not go to P.Burgos street or cross the lines by doing anything that would constitute as adultery, even as tempted as I am to do so. Has anybody seen the movie “Hall Pass?” Well it’s been kinda like that for me in the past 2 weeks, except that I granted myself my own Hall Pass, no way my idiot wife will ever give me one.
The only difference in my life was that I just never admitted to any girl here that I was married, and saw how far things went. A few occurrences had almost border-lined adultery, and I ended the experiment after one had gave me her skype, email, phone number, and a kiss. I sat down and reflected on myself how much MORE FUN my life would’ve been if I was SINGE in Philippines. This fun is a mutual thing for anyone of ANY sexual orientation because mostly everyone’s sexual preferences are exposed here. The gays are clearly gay, the lesbians are clearly lesbians, and the straights are clearly straight….. with that said, there is a little something for everyone.
There is nothing worst than being stuck with someone you don’t wanna be associated with. My wife is getting fatter every month (and no, she is not pregnant… she just got off the rag last week… thank goodness!), and when she has her filogic/pissed off moments, I can’t get rid of her. On top of that, I’m getting tempting opportunities every week. I manged to keep my loyalty in tact with her, but not sure how long it will last at this rate.
The moral of this story is; if you want to have MORE FUN in the Philippines, stay SINGLE. It’s a lot better than being married to someone here with you. I’m not encouraging anyone to cheat and be unfaithful, but if you THINK you found that special one, I’m just letting you know that if you marry her/him, you are stuck with them and ALL your FUN ends right there. You can mingle, but I’m warning you not to get permanently attached.
Resource: My Life = Been engaged to this Filipina for 3 years, thought she was the one. After marriage, she became EVERYTHING I didn’t want. Ultimately, she is not so bad, but I could’ve done a lot better if I explored my options.
I totally have 4 guaranteed girls lined up if things don’t work out well with my wife and she finally leaves me.Published in
