Village Life

If you’re dating a beautiful Filipina who’s from a small village in the Philippines, here’s a video showing what to expect.

I’ve already written an article detailing the exact steps on how to use the restroom. Make sure you read this after watching the video.

How to Use the Toilet at Your Filipina’s Home in the Village

The CR

I think the biggest shock for most guys from the West is when they see the restroom (called the CR or Comfort Room in the Philippines). It’s not exactly the same as a bathroom in the U.S.

Girls in the Philippines - Online Dating and Cultural Advice

I made this video for educational purposes and it’s intended for my fellow man. It’s especially for the guy who is chatting with a Filipina and is about to make his first trip here to the Philippines. Sorry goes out to all of my female viewers. Ladies, this particular video ain’t for you or the kids. Pick another one from my collection and sit this one out.

Many guys from the West have asked me about what it’s like in the village.

Go Spend Time in Your Filipina’s Village

When you travel the world, you learn that things are done a little bit different from country to country and culture to culture. That’s life. If your girl is from a small village, man up and go stay there for a few days. You can do it.

    So when your in one of the “provinces” all by yourself, fresh from the states, where would you stay? Are there boarding houses or dome kind of matels???

    Slso, how do you get around?

    Ive bee in some low life areas around chicago and LA but have never been in what sounds like a jungle habitat.

    There’s usually a hotel not too far from your girl’s village. It may not be the Hilton (if she’s way out in the province), but it will work just fine for a few days. Getting around is easy in the Philippines. Take the bus for longer journeys. They got jeepneys and tricycles for shorter trips. Too easy. No need to rent a car or motorbike. Just take public transportation and taxis. Airfare between the islands is fairly cheap as well.

    Thanks for telling me how to do my personal business in a Philippine washroom ( take a dump ) , Mark. Don’t know what I’d do without you. You should hook up with National Geographic. Tell them you have some important travel information for them.

    Dear Mark,
    Your video about CRs in the Philippines is hilariously enlightening. Although I am quite familiar with toilets around Asia, the video was still instructive and left no questions open. As a prospective first-time traveler to the Philippines, I enjoyed and learned a lot from your other blog entries, too. Have fun and enjoy, Ingo.
