Davao Girls & Meeting Lillie
Once we had started to talk on a regular basis, and I mean every single night, Lillie told me where she was working and all about her hometown of Davao City and how Davao girls are warm, caring, and quiet compared to a lot of girls in the Philippines.
Lillie explained the reason for this; Davao is not a globalized major tourist spot (at the moment), it is traditional and conservative, and a major agricultural center. The Davao nightlife is more traditional and doesn't attract lots of foreign men looking for holiday girlfriends.
Lillie enlightened me on the love of singing for most Davao girls, as it is the one pastime which is easy for them to enjoy in one of the local Karaoke bars, no matter what time of day, and she herself is quite a decent singer I must add.
After a while of communicating, I mentioned about visiting her in Dubai for a holiday, Lillie thought it was strange why I wanted to meet her so soon, but to me it just seemed the right thing to do. A month later I had my ticket and my holiday booked from work.
My bags were packed and I was off to meet Lillie in Dubai, the plane touched down and mobile phones could be turned on. From then every 2 minutes I received a text, “where are you,” this carried on until I finally cleared immigration and entered the airport proper.
I still remember Lillie pinching me as if I was not real, and I had the thought of WOW, she has big eyes. Even before that moment, I for one felt like we had transcended past boyfriend and girlfriend and all that, Davao girls are quick to work their way into a man's affections! She showed me around a lot of the sights in Dubai and it was a fantastic time, it felt like it was much more than a holiday, it was just another step towards our life together.
If you are looking for a long-term love interest then make sure you avoid the bars; the girls there come with too many risks. A trustworthy dating site is a better option, so see:

It may seem quick to a lot of people, but times are changing and I asked
Lillie to marry me, as you may realise the answer was yes. So, after
getting an engagement ring, it was soon time for me to leave for the UK,
and Lillie was actually leaving too to head back home to the
Philippines once her contract had finished.
