They are certainly talented as musicians and singers. One of my buddies from college would go spend spring break with his family on many cruises. But, after being on so many cruises, his parents didn't pick the cruises based on the intinerary but based on a particular Filipino band on the ship, lol.

Having gone to a few cruises myself , I was also able to witnessed some of the talented Filipino bands on the cruise ships. Depending on the cruise ships, the workers sometimes wear pins on their lapels with their country of origin and I noticed that the ice carvers on the cruise ships were Filipinos. They do amazing worked. Now, that I think about it, the cruise ships were stacked with Filipino workers, there were ship engineers servicing the ship and waiters from what I remember.

I was travelling to Toyko one time and sat next to a gentlemen who used to be in the US airforce and was on his way to Manila. He chatted about his days in the Philippines. He said the same thing about the ladies at the strip bars milking the guys and making them buy drinks all night. Not only that, he had one episode in Manila where he hired the taxi driver for the night and befriended him and insisted he tagged along in the bars cause he knew the owner. Little did he know, the taxi driver was in on it as well. The driver insisted the gentleman to buy more drinks and milked the guy. He said the taxi drivers received some kind of "commission" for bringing in foreigners in their bars and milk them for as much as they can get.

lol I know I was mistreated in the Phillipines.

Jesus palimino what a corrupt place.

Cant count how many times I was cut with butterfly knives.

The police tried to arrest me one day for being with what they thought was an underaged girl. She was in her twenties with a baby face.
When they couldn't get me that way, they charged me with kissing in public. This place is insane I thought. I finally got rid of them by giving then so many Phillipine Pesos, about $20.

Kissed the ground when I landed in the states. Don't care if I ever go back.

Because the Korean won goes farther against the Phillipine peso.

Enough that a middle class Korean family can afford a big house with a garden in the Phillipines compared to a small apartment in Seoul or other big cities.

Koreans see Filipinos as third world migrant workers and you should google the nasty comments Jasmine Lee (a naturalized Korean citizen) endured when she indirectly won a seat at Korean parliament due to her party winning the elections a couple of years ago.

In fact, google how Koreans treat Southeast Asians in general.

Jasmine Lee is ethnically Filipina and she is a shade or two darker than the average Korean (though part of that unnatural pale complexion which Koreans claim to have are thanks to skin bleaches in their sanitary products and make up).

Which is quite funny because if Koreans were not so afraid of the sun and stop using skin whitening products, a good number of them would have similar complexions as Jasmine.

lol now I'm curious about who is this Jasmine Lee. So I search on her video on youtube and read comments there too.


YouTube Jasmine Lee Speaks Out for Foreign Wives Arirang Today - YouTube

I believe they really look down on Southeast Asians. Notice some of the comments from other thread.
I guess some appreciated her but reading comments. yes, there are people that do not like her. I don't know if that person who says most of the koreans do not like her. They look down on us I guess because we are in the 3rd world class country. They even bragged their MD's etc. IQ thing.

Blessed her heart that she found a Korean man who loved her for her and did not care about her ethnicity (most international marriages that involve Koreans are usually women with foreign husbands).

Too bad he died.

I have cousin who is married to a Korean lady. so I don't hate such a group of people, but the thing is I dislike people who judge based on race all the time. It's not her fault and her husband that they fell in love to each other & had a multiracial kid. I guess some countries are not that open-minded. I saw a documentary about Korean-Filipino kids in the Philippines, their father couldn't take them in Korea because they are not full Korean. I guess they just wanted to preserved their race or culture but prejudice is not the answer too.

Filipinos can be just as racist. Ask a black person who has been to the Philippines

I can believe it....I was mistaken to be half-Korean and most of the Korean elders yelled and discriminated against me and gossiped about me with dirty looks.
