  1. ggeezz, can't stand not getting the last snippy-smart a$$ word in? why can't people just leave her alone. go pick on your dog or something.

    and you just cant stand not to let ppl speak if they want to? did i appoint you as my mommy? i dont think so.. therefore if you dont like what im saying, dont read it. easy as that :)

    no, i'm not your mommy or daddy. i just don't understand why you fell the need to be judgemental & crappy to everyone. do you feel you're lacking in some way? were you not given enough attention when you were a child? or is it just a personality flaw?........notice i didn't single you or anyone else out in any of my comments?

    I was answeing you as you seem to feel you are the ONLY one allowed to continue to comment.

    maybe your thriving for attention, not getting enough at home? and you singled me out in THIS last comment you just made. so who is the judemental one now?

    and i wasnt being judgemental or crappy to her, i was stating exactly what she wrote in her OP. nothing i said was fabricated.

    again if you dont like what i write, ignore it, no one is making you read it. :)

    I say, If you dont like what I ask, dont answer it, ignore it, nobody is making you read it. LOL

    Oh ok, I was just confused for a moment about what you quoted and then mentioned joemama...

    ahem coz I think this thread got so long coz of his thinking: A chance at "free" money? Sure why the hell not. I see she posted another thread in the K1 forum asking about qualifying income. Does 1+1 actually equal 2?. What a nice response, huh?

    Sure. That is probably when I had become "pangit" and started having a set of coconut nuts. Correct? And then you went on to tell me how I am ashamed of being Filipino and I hated pinay's. Correct? My, how we forget so conveniently :lol:

  2. Thanks for opening my eyes smoke20. Adding to this topic is giving me a headache. All I am hearing is Richard Gere from "Officer and A Gentleman", saying over and over in my head, "$5 cheap cheap". I've got to go yell at the maid for a while for not using enough starch on my shirts. The butler needs a little slapping around also. Kudos! :thumbs:

    wow, what a funny guy!! maybe you should take your comedy act on the road. you could use the stage name Richard Cranium.

    Hmmm....thanks for the good advice. Kool! :D

    aahh whats wrong joe. you don't want to sling muck, jabs & insults w/ someone equipped to do so?

    thanks for playing i'm going to the gym...see you later.

    I have no problem with it. The only reason why you feel compelled to defend the OP is because your SO is Filipino also. Would you be so protective if the OP were of another ethnic background? Call me a racist if you wish. I know it's sitting on the tip of your tongue ready to call all of us one you do not like or agree with. ;)

    no joe i don't think you're a racist. i just don't like the uncalled for attacks on people. even if they're made injest....no hard feelings.. i just wanted to step up for asianbeauty. and, yes i do feel a little bias coz she is a filipina

    No problem with that. Respectable. But I don't know if you notice it, she does know how to play defense, as well as, offense. She's capable of handling herself just fine. I'll give credit where it is due. ;)

  6. I agree, but I think you are talking to a wall here.

    Then...if you chose to go to a superexpensive restaurant vs one of the famous chain-restaurants or you prefer designer purses to ordinary purses, that's a personal reference and if she or they will be able to afford it, we can't and shouldn't judge anyone for that.

    Is it materialistic thinking? I think so, money isn't everything, but it is up to everyone themselves to decide where and how they spend their money.

    The fact that they haven't met yet is a totally different story and again, that is for them to see how things will be once they meet.

    Yes. Personal preference. I agree. I dated someone who was always focused on what I could buy for her. That was more important. Only to her though. Needless to say, of course, the relationship did not go anywhere past my wallet. It was good to know this and not continue it only to end up in the poor house to satisfy that need.

    Maybe this pinay's dream will all come true. Maybe as long as he's bearing gifts of Louis V products under his arm! :lol:

  7. The whole thing that smells rotten about it all, is that the priorities are strongly underlined with materialism. Designer items, expensive restaurants, servants, etc. Then the mention of "suing" someone for whatever reason. The percentage is very high most of the time because it is usually for money. Any business that gets sued, the money that gets paid out in a lawsuit does not come out of the pockets of that business. It comes out of the consumer's pockets. That's the reason why Americans have to pay so much for everything. I don't know many American men that turn the other way when their lady is spending $800.00 for a Louis V purse. It's obvious us men don't ignore things like that. The other things, expensive restaurants, suing, etc., should not be of importance. The relationship should be. They haven't met in person yet, they only speak via the telephone, her family says they're right for each other, etc. That doesn't mean anything until they actually meet and see if they can live together. I am taking it that her family and boyfriend do not live in the same house. But people tend to believe the reality that is presented. He could turn out to be Mr. Jeckel/Mr. Hyde. The guy could be presenting himself as Mr. Wonderful. Do you really know for certain he is? How often do we read in the paper or see documentaries on TV that show early in a relationship how wonderful a person is and then turn out to be a crazed madman who stalked their girlfriend or spouse because that person no longer wanted to be in the relationship and they could not let them go? And then the whole relationship has a tragic ending? :rolleyes: It gives you something to think about more than Louis V, expensive restaurants, and suing, doesn't it?

  8. my husband want to have the sexy time everyday... i think it's too much... how often does everyone do the deed during a period of a week? give me some numbers people! :blink:

    At least your husband does cum to a stop. If he was this guy...

    He would just keep going and going and going....:lol:

  9. I hope this is the right forum. I'm new to this.

    I am becoming more and more frustrated. I am an English as a Second Language Teacher. I really enjoyed doing this in the beginning because I love children and wanted to help new immigrants in this country. Over the past year or so things have been getting tough. Since the government passed the "No Child Left Behind Act" schools are forced to send home everything, absolutely everything in the home language and not in English. Whatever the language may be. If we are caught not doing this we are chastised and penalized financially, etc.

    Since I speak some Spanish and the school can't afford an interpreter I am forced to spend much less time teaching English and much more time translating report cards, field trip forms, making phone calls, going to the dental clinic outside the school, and every single thing that goes home in a school of about 500 students I must translate. Not to mention making and taking phone calls which are interrupting class with my students and I must attend all meetings that involve a parent who speaks another language.

    Most of the parents of my children are great but some of them have been here for 10 years or more and refuse to speak or learn English even when they are offered free English classes. Even some that do speak English refuse to do it because they want it all done for them in Spanish. One of these actually had the nerve to go to my principal and point out that I had made a minor gramattical error in a translation that made no difference to the content or information whatsover. I am an English teacher for crying out loud. I never get to teach anymore.

    I am so very frustrated lately because I am petitioning for my fiance legally and I work with children whose parents are here illegally and so obviously taking advantage of me on a daily basis. Never would I ever blame the students, my kids. They are wonderful beautiful children.

    As I've said I love these students. My heart is in teaching and helping others to get a better life but honestly I have become so very dissillusioned that I am looking to leave the profession.

    Is anyone else in this position?

    Thanks for listening.

    Teacher

    Your experience is exactly what I was talking about some time back when I mentioned the fact about "dumbing down" to cater to another group of people. Of course, I was called a racist. Speaking as a parent of 3 children in school, I'm concerned about my children learning. How can a teacher teach when they're being forced to devote their time to "cater" to a group of non-English speaking children and parents? I've heard my children complain about this in their schools. Whenever I ask them what they learned in school today, the reply is usually that the teacher just had them drawing on paper to occupy their time while they were helping non-English speaking children. It upsets me that my children go to school and waste basically an entire day doing nothing and learning nothing. It is only because the teacher cannot teach everyone at the same time. I absolutely do not blame the teacher. All the blame goes to the BOE for allowing English-speaking children lose out on an education which they rightfully deserve.

    Teacher, if you decide to look for another job or profession, you wouldn't be the first teacher to do so. It's becoming a growing trend that many of my children's former teachers are leaving the teaching profession because of exactly how you feel.

  10. To even have the ideal of Filipino's being discriminated during this day and age in the US, someone's been given her a whole bunch of bad information. Because of this thread, I asked my father who immigrated to the US in the late 1950's from the Philippines, about his experience with discrimination. He's still got his accent, very much "Filipino-looking", and he said that he's never had any experience with discrimination in the US. We've lived in Maryland, Rhode Island, as well as multiple California cities, i.e. San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Waterford. I will tell you about Waterford. Moved there in 1977. We were the first Filipino family to move to this little central California hick town. It was a as white as a town could be. Confederate flags and the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd were the norm. Not once can I recall while growing up in this town, were we ever discriminated against. We went everywhere without incident. That's why I came to the conclusion someone has been feeding this girl a lot of garbage about our society. Whomever she knows that is living here and telling her these things, I do not doubt that Americans are just rude or abrasive toward them often because of "their" attitude. Not their race. I have 2 businesses here. If I don't like a customer's attitude, I absolutely never do business with them again. I don't have the tolerance for such people. I don't care what race they are. I've had Filipinos act the same way. They knew I was of Filipino heritage. Did that matter to them and their attitude toward me? No. I don't know if they were expecting preferential treatment. I certainly did not give it to them. From my previous posts in this thread, because the OP is a Filipina, and I am Filipino, I was not going to give special treatment solely because of her race. That would be "Un-American" and absolutely discriminating. Probably the only thing even remotely close to me giving them preferential treatment in business, was that I sent away clients and had them never wanting to patronize my business again. I can choose my customers for my businesses. If they do not like me, they are free to go to another business. It's freedom of choice. That's what America is all about baby! :thumbs:

    If this Filipina can understand what was just said, and she passes her interview to get here, she'll know that any American that appears or is rude to her, will be solely based on "her" attitude toward them. It won't be because of her race. ;)

  11. The disease has spread! It's contagious SU! I'm a damn good-looking man! With coconut nuts according to the Filipinas on here! ;)

    As far as the preaching, could it be written on toilet paper so that I may put it to good use later? :lol:

    So what you're saying is you don't appreciate being called out about this?

    Is that what it is? I'm sorry I did not understand your attempt.



    But please, write it down for me. I'll be happy to read it. But you'll have to excuse me though.

    I've got other messages I must get to first ;)

  12. Hey VJ, I want to publicly anounce that I'm dead sexy!

    Cheers!!!

    Sheriff Uling

    I think the way some people jump on people here on VJ is pretty sad all the way around. It seems that most don't take the time to think about their response and how it might be interpreted. "But SHE started it!" Right? So what?

    Preach!!! I'm not the only person that knows the truth.

    The disease has spread! It's contagious SU! I'm a damn good-looking man! With coconut nuts according to the Filipinas on here! ;)

  13. That sums it up about right. :yes: There was a similar situation with a thread about a year ago by Filipina asking when is it okay to start asking her fiance for money. She was tarred and feathered for that one. Both sides pandering to stereotypes.

    And rightfully so.

    Perhaps. But I think in both cases, cultural differences affected how it was communicated and how people reacted to it.

    I'm willing to bet my left "coconut" that she knew exactly what she was talking about. :lol:

  14. At first my fiance wasn't sure he's ready to move to USA so he asked me to give him some time to think about everything and see what is more important to him......things that keep him in his country or his possibly future wife. Asking for 3 months only after 1 mnth he told me that he can't imagine his life without me and that i outweighted absolutely everything and it doesn't matter where we live as long as we're together. Actually for some reason he preferred to move to Canada rather than USA, no idea why.

    So he never had any intentions of moving to USA until i came into his life. He had a pretty good and decent life in Israel.

    "You will love me. You will come to America.



    Canada does not exist to you anymore.

    You will never look at another woman again"

    :lol: I couldn't resist! :D

  15. HELP! I'M GOING TO CRY! I'VE BEEN CALLED A "COCONUT"! OH PLEASE! :lol:

    You're gonna have to call me more than a damn coconut for you birds to offend me! ;)

    With so many of you rallying together to call me whatever you wanted, it just reminded me of this photo:

    large_chickens.gif

    The funny thing I am asking myself, being Filipino also, how many of you Filipinas might be related to me? :lol:

    Not me for sure! shame on your attitude, probably if you can deny being pinoy probably you will.

    LOL, COCONUT NUTS.

    Funny how the word "NUTS" must roll right off of your lips! :lol:

    Since you decided to point with your comment that you are better than my fiancee' because she is "white", it's not my attitude that needs changing. It's not me who needs to adapt to a new environment and culture. It's you when you come here. The only person who has shown they are racist and discriminating, is YOU. You turn your nose up and make comments like that about white women when you're here in the US, and you're sure to have a white American woman knock you on your butt. American women come in other colors also. Black, brown, yellow, and red. It won't matter to them that you're darker skinned. American women won't put up with that bullshit. We are a very diverse nation of cultures from all over the world. It's my RIGHT to choose what lady of skin color I want to marry. I am not ashamed and don't deny I'm of Filipino heritage. But because I'm Filipino, that doesn't mean I have to give you any special treatment. Ethnic backgrounds or where a person comes from doesn't make any difference to me. If I don't like someone, I just don't like them. If you think that I am rude, as we say here in America, you're in for a very RUDE AWAKENING! I'm fairly tame. You're going to encounter people much worse than I could ever be in my lifetime. ;)

    It makes me laugh that you wish to know your "American" rights. That's fine. Wouldn't it be smarter to be asking a qualified attorney-at-law about your exact rights? You should've done that before accepting a marriage proposal to an American man. You seem to be more focused on our streets that are paved with gold, our mansions with swimming pools, and sports cars. Don't forget to fill out Form 411 to collect your $1,000,000.00 dollars when you arrive at your Point of Entry.

    You are certainly entitled to these materialistic rights as our American movies always show the world! :thumbs:
