Hello everybody. I am sorta new here. I have a Filipino girlfriend/fiancé and we have a son that is now 16 months old. She lives in the Manila area. I have made 6 trips there since May of 2012, 2 of those trips I have made this year due to the schedule I have had. Her birthday is in May and our sons' birthday is in June. I have a daughter from a previous marriage that got married June 6th of this year so I flew to the Philippines in April, came home in May, flew back in June and back home to Canada in July this year. I got lucky getting 2 flights there this year at about $2100 CDN and that was thanks to the low oil prices. I guess I will have to recant my stories of these trips here later on sometime.
Last year when I went I got my Filipino drivers license. Driving on those streets is an experience. I did notice that there seems to be very few, if any, aggressive drivers there. Certainly I have not seen any road rage. I have only seen 3 accidents on the road so far, but I am sure there had been more.
Anyways, that is my introduction. I will tell more if you want.
