Title: Hello Please allow me to introduce myself.
Post by: KuyainTejas on July 22, 2016, 01:17:36 AM
Hi: My name is Bob, I live in Texas, but am originally from Pennsylvania and I just turned 51. My Filipina wife, Leila,  is the same age. We have been married for seven years in December.

My wife and I met on line (not a dating site, just Yahoo friends or something similar) back in 2000. We communicated for eight years through email and Yahoo messenger. During this time she emigrated to California on an H1B (she has family in the LA area), I got engaged, she got into a long term relationship after mine broke up so we never met in person until 2008.  I flew to LA to meet her and she visited me the next spring. We got engaged and married later in 2009.

I am a high school teacher with 18 years in and she is a staff accountant with a general contractor. We make about the same money each year and we own some property.  We love travelling and we just got back from our second trip to the Philippines in the last five years. 

We stayed in Manila and then headed to Bicol and Catanduanes where she was born. Stayed on the island a few days, visited Legaspi, came back to Manila, met up with her family and travelled to Vigan.

That's us in a nut shell. 

Bob

Welcome to the forum.  I can't resist though.

Please allow me to introduce myself.  I'm a man of wealth and taste. I've been around for a long, long year, stole many a man's soil to waste...

Now get that tune of of your head if you can.  😁😁

So do you plan on retiring to the Philippines in the near future?

Welcome to the group, Bob and Leila! Planning any new trips in the near future? We're visiting Manila again in a couple of months. Looking forward to some good BBQ sticks and cold San Miguel  :D
