Hi suzukig1,

Thanks!! So she CAN call the lawyers' offices with her mobile. It's funny that she was not aware of that fact as she lives with that gadget in her hand all day long.

Here are two phone numbers of the twenty Olongapo City lawyers which i sent to her, as listed on the internet:
+63 998 976 3406 (This is a mobile, correct?)
+63 47 223 7931   (This is not a mobile, correct?)

What exactly would she have to dial if she is NOT in Olongapo City when calling these Olongapo City numbers?
..............................................................

1. +63 998 976 3406 is a mobile number on the Smart Telco network.
She will have to dial 0998 976 3406, from the mobile network provider she has. No matter where she is located in the Philippines at the time of calling.

2. +63 47 223 7931 is a PLDT network land line.

She would have to dial 047 223 7931 from her mobile, no matter where she is or which mobile Telco she uses.

If she uses a landline outside the 047 area she would dial the full number - 047 223 7931.
If she uses a landline inside the 047 area she would only dial 223 7931.

The province of Bataan is included in the PLDT 047 prefix area.

Here is a link to Telco numbering. < https://tinyurl.com/y2oe9gy7  >

Thank you, so much, Peter. Your response really clarifies it all.

I am just sitting, here, scratching my head and wondering WHY she doesn't (or didn't) know that. 
Could it be she has never called a PH landline before?
She's been working non-stop at various jobs since she's 17, i am sure she's had to call-in to work for some reason and had to call a landline at least once along the way.
What also worries me is why she's worked at so many different jobs if jobs are so hard to find in The PH. I would think that she would stay at a job when she has one.

I've been REALLY on her case, lately, "strongly" encouraging to send her photos to modeling agencies because SHE can do it.
I've seen some ...well, let's just say, 'not very good looking' PH models posing for ads in PH modeling agency FB pages.
She is a stunner.
She's trying to tell me now that she's ugly and not good enough to be a model, but she forgets about months ago when she told me that everywhere she goes she gets cat-calls from men. And i can believe it. She is ALL that.

With all the money she is needing, now, for lawyers' fees and bureaucratic bribes to correct her documents, she is flatly refusing to even consider modeling with many lame excuses.
However, she is an absolute stunner.
 
She was nagging and going on and on so much about getting her passport, that i agreed. But i told her that if i agree to let her spend P950.00 on a passport to be a freeking maid in an Islamic country, that she will come here first to spend time with me.
Since her passport application was denied due to her TWO different birth certificates, she's now panicking and seems to be in such a hurry to get a lawyer started on her file, and that is a good thing. BUT what is really starting to bug is how she is NOW telling me that her cousin, who was working as an OFW, as a maid, (and who had been sent home early because of ABUSE by the Islamic employer) is telling her that
"Most 'agencies' won't allow you to use your mom's maiden name". I'm thinking  ???  :o "agencies"?? ...maid agencies? She told me that she will never be a maid after learning what i showed her about that industry - all the physical, mental and sexual abuse and murders. And she still has it in her thick skull to be an effing maid!? WTF!!!

So what now?... is her provincial ex-maid cousin an expert in emigration and passports now just because she was led, like a lamb, to a maid agency and she got abused by her Islamic employer and was sent home early because she wanted her contract canceled?? Pfftt! Man! Talk about the blind leading the blind.

So, i am clearly noticing that she is really concerned about being a maid - that, seems to be her goal in life.
So, red flags are going up, now. I keep thinking if she still really wants to be a maid, why ask me to foot the lawyers' fees and bribes?...let the coveted maid agency handle it all for her.
I've clearly told her that i would not want her to be a slave-maid and putting herself in any harms way. She has such low self-esteem. She is a knock-out but refuses to send her model-like photos to a modeling agency where if they like her, and some modeling agency WILL want her, she could be earning more than P30,000.00 per month just for smiling in front of a camera and then she can go home to her son every night and pay her own legal fees and bribes.
But no, she wants to be on her hands and knees scrubbing floors and being overworked all day, and being beaten by the employer and even risk being raped and/or murdered if she speaks out about the abuse, and all for US$4,000.00 per month - with no days off and she won't see her family and son for months and months on end.

I had sent her more money than i wanted to send only once. And if anyone remembers, i only wanted to send CAN$60.00 once in a while so she could buy and eat better food to help stop the UTIs from recurring.

I am feeling so confused.

Hi Steve,

I kindly welcome and encourage you to delete whatever you deem unacceptable.

You have my full support and permission to do so. NO hard feeling on my par. I promise
I mean we wouldn't want any more complaints, would we? I can't imagine all the complaints flooding your inbox.

Thanks

Steve.

Apologies for responding to a GF post from Robbie on this thread, but I feel his earlier statement <......and all for US$4,000.00 per month...> should be corrected.

Robbie.
First time, inexperienced maids would dream of getting such a salary.
Around SR 2,500, OMR 250 - 300 is the norm. So US$ 450 - 600 is about the going rate in the Middle East at present for first timers, no matter how the recruiters (who are only after their commissions) spin it.

To bring some context. A Captain in the Royal Army of Oman would be on a monthly salary of around the equivalent of US$ 4,000 to 4,500, depending on service increments. And most RAO Officers who worked for me had at least one maid, with some having a nanny for their children, as well. As had most married Senior NCOs

Ooops, $4k is an error, for sure. Probably what i was thinking is that Filipina maids are sold for $US4,000.00 when 
they get a contract. See the youtube video link below to the documentary about maids.
I meant to say she would be paid US$400.00 LOL.

Man, i was so upset with her, i added a zero by mistake. She keeps talking about being a maid when she could easily be a model and earn who knows how much MORE money smiling at a camera and STAYING SAFE and have a glamorous life, wearing fine clothes.
Guys, no lying, 60% of her FB photos look like professional modeling photos. Even without any makeup she looks quite nice. She is a picture of beauty - a bonafide BABE. She sent me a recent video of herself in the CR, smiling at me in the mirror and blowing me kisses and flashing that glamor smile. She could easily be an international model. She's tall, leggy and HOT...arghhh!...anyway.

I'd love to post and share photos of her face but i won't because i don't want to expose her in case someone's wife or family member knows her and the shyte hits the fan because her family would be down her throat for dealing with a foreigner as her family doesn't approve of Pinays with foreigners.
Maybe if i had to cash to win them all over they wouldn't mind - but what would that make me - nothing but an ATM - maybe if i was a rich man - a lottery winner.     

I told her to go run to the effing coveted maid agency and let them take care of her papers IF that's what she wants in life.

I told her she will not be a maid. I won't allow it.
I told her i would support her all the way in modeling and pay for whatever course she had to take like learn to walk like a model etc, but nope, her mind is dead-set on scrubbing floors on her hands and knees, being verbally humiliated, beaten, deprived of food, raped  and maybe even murdered - and she is so pretty, tall, slim, curvy that i have no doubt the employer or the employer's son will be demanding sex.
I've seen too many videos of raped Pinays and other maids in documentaries to agree with her stupid choice.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb_pBhWi1YM

Maybe not all the maids get raped but all the ones i saw in videos who were raped, all looked very attractive. Even some raped-maid victims are NOT attractive and they STILL get "IT".

I fell in love with her beautiful mind first, but she wants to risk having that beautiful mind screwed up by being raped and for US$400.00 per month. And then she'll carry that mental scar to our bed (if it gets that far) and i won't be able to touch her without re-opening that mental scar? NO THANKS.
If i stay with her, after she gets raped - AND SHE WILL be raped - then, it would be a physical attraction as what i love most about her will be CHANGED.

I would not even send my DOG to an abusive trainer because i don't want a dog that flinches whenever i raise my hand to scratch my head, or when i call it and it comes to me slowly with its head lowered, ears back, tail between its legs, and pissing.
And she knows how i feel about that maid job because we've discussed it. And, she agreed with me and said she'll never do it. And then a sudden change of mind and she wants to risk it again. Yea, well, not me.
I have the wisdom, knowledge and experience with which to guide her - not the other way around.

I just cut her loose, today. It was a very tough decision. I AM NOT HAPPY!  I just blocked her on facebook. And if she contacts me with another page, i'll block that page, too. Our age difference is way too big, anyway - 37 years - who am i kidding?

And she was getting like, "ARE you gonna help me or NOT?", demanding money for lawyers' fees when she has no idea how much it will cost because she only contacted one lawyer even after i asked her to contact ALL of them to get the lowest quote.
I sent her all the numbers of lawyers she requested (in Olongapo), and when i sent her the messages from here in the forum on HOW to use her mobile phone to contact landlines, she says, "I gotta pay for all those calls".
News flash!
I'm the one paying, not her.
I wonder why she even asked for the numbers if she wasn't planning on calling any. I guess she assumed i wouldn't able to find any, yea, well she assumed wrong. I AM a frikken "search engine".   

I don't expect to be back in the forum, here, unless she finds a way to contact me to tell me that she went into modeling, and new issues arise where i will need your help, again, gentlemen.

She has my home address if she wants to write that letter she mentioned writing to me.
I even told her, "As a model, you might even find a younger guy as beautiful looking as you are with whom you could have more in common than you think you do with an old blues/rock nobody guitarist/songwriter".


Hmph!
She said she loves me. Me!!
I love her...but as SHE IS now. 
See the attached photo. I don't want to deal with that SHYTE. 

THANKS A BUNDLE, GENTLEMEN.

I really thank you all for your help, advice and even the warnings.

THANKS to you, Steve, for putting up with my long posts and off-topic comments - but - i DID only go off topic in MY own threads, right?( Wait a minute, i don't think i responded to any threads.)
Thanks for letting me express myself, Steve. I really needed to do that. I think it was very therapeutic not being held back. You are a gentleman.

I gotta go dry my eyes, now, because i feel like absolute SHYTE!!
I wonder how she feels, right now - pretty alone, i guess. FRICK! I feel like such an arsehole.

I can't care. Frick it! Move on. She blew it. That's it that's all!

I didn't want anyone in the first place, I'd GIVEN UP on love, long ago. See?...i married my porn videos, i am a happy camper. They don't argue, they don't demand, they don't wanna be maids, AND they NEVER need or want  money for a lawyer.
Heck, i can EVEN watch MAIDS! Woo hoo! I'll resign myself to that and hope she smartens up and contacts me with some good news about modeling.


Over and OUT.
Robbie
