You wake up in the morning with itchy toes from mosquito’s that found their way into the apartment, the fighting cocks next door remind you to get up even though its still only 7am if your lucky. Clambering downstairs already irritated you stick the kettle on the hob and wait for it to boil before you get your morning coffee. Five minutes peace would be great to give time to wake up but then the putt, putt of the neighbours motorcycle starts as he heads off to work. The noise in the Philippines is constant and without double glazing impossible to ignore. Kettle boiled, coffee poured wondering what to do for the day and a little grumpy from the early wake up call until that beautiful smile appears round the corner that all Filipina’s have. That’s when you know moving here was not only the best decision but the one that will always make you happy with a passing glance for its the Filipina that brings men to the Philippines nothing else. The warmth of the smile and the simple content heart that can be found just by being a reasonable guy. Don’t have to have the looks of a movie star or the body of an athlete most women are content with a guy capable of paying the bills and taking care of the family unit. You can leave the rest to them, welcome to the Philippines and the joys of marrying a Filipina a smile for all occasions that lifts the heaviest of hearts.
