Canadian Woman Travels to the Philippines to Marry Pinoy Boyfriend

Social media is a great way to meet new friends and, sometimes, friends who turn into lovers. This is the reason why there are so many couples now who come from different countries, having met each other on the internet.

Across the Philippines, it is actually quite common to see foreigners who are married to Pinay ladies but it is rare to come across a male Filipino with a foreigner wife. For this reason, when people heard of the story of how a Canadian woman traveled all the way to the Philippines to marry her Pinoy boyfriend, they were quite amazed.

Shared on Facebook page BF/GF and reposted by a number of blogs, the story involves a couple who met on social media back in 2009. Despite being more than 8,000 miles away from each other, their friendship would soon blossom into love.

While most long distance relationships eventually break off because of the challenges the couples often face due to the distance, these two were able to make theirs work.

On January 5, 2012, they finally met in person when the Canadian woman flew to General Santos City International Airport. For weeks, they spent happy times together but the woman had to fly back to Canada.

Would this signal the end of their relationship? Well, they have weathered the tough times in the past, surely they would be able to work on the relationship especially after they met in person!

For over a year, the relationship continued as a long distance love affair but after being apart for so long, the two decided to get married and be together forever!

They got married on August 10, 2013 and have become a huge inspiration to many, especially recently when their love story went viral.

It has long been established that selfies can be dangerous. Especially if you become addicted to it that you forget to be careful about your surroundings, in your attempts to shoot the perfect selfie.

May we remind you about the most dangerous selfies that have been posted? Or do you want to read about the man who lost his life because he wanted a selfie with a walrus? Or what about the guy who accidentally killed himself because he wanted a selfie with an unpinned grenade? See, the list is endless.

Adding to that list is this young woman from Indonesia who were taking photos with her friends near the train tracks in Purworejo on December 6.

Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.

Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.

The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.

May this incident serve as a warning to those who are taking their selfies. Remember that no matter how “cool” your selfie is, it won’t matter much if you are not alive and well.

We have heard incredible stories where taxi, Grab and Uber drivers are being good samaritans.

Recently, another Grab driver is earning praise as he defied all traffic rules and all odds, as you may, just so he can bring his rider to St. Lukes Hospital in BGC.

In a Facebook post of Andrea Venice Yuson that PhilStar shared, she recalled how the Grab driver that she and her mom rode on the way to the hospital was nice enough to speed up and defy traffic lights, just so he can bring his rider to the hospital on time.

She posted how the driver did everything he could when he found out that Yuson’s mom was not feeling well.

“Pag akyat sa Market Market, talagang binubusinahan niya lahay ng nasa harap niya kahit naka stop traffic light.”

The driver blew his horn so that the other vehicles will give way to them and know that it is an emergency.

“Bandang BGC na kami busina padin siya ng busina binuksan niya yung bintana niya sinesenyasan niya yung mga gusto pang mauna kesa sakanya tas nagagalit siya di kami makadaan kasi sabe niya ’emergency nga e'”

Yuson also shared how the driver seemed affected and nervous, he even looked back at the mom and asked if she is still ok.

“Kita sa mukha niya nagagalit, nagaalala, sabay sabing, ‘pinagpapawisan ako, kaya niyo pa ba ma’am?'”

When they reached the traffic light, the driver beat the red light and also told the other driver that was trying to go ahead that this is an emergency.

“Binreak niya yung traffic light, e may dadaan kasi naka-go yung isa, sabi niya ‘sige mahuli ka emergency nga to eh, wala akong pakielam sainyo kahit magaway pa tayo.”

Because of the driver’s efforts, they were able to reach the hospital and Yuson’s mom was taken care of. When she tried to pay the driver, he refused and said that she should just take care of her mom.

“Unahin mo muna mama mo, tulungan mo muna siya.”

In the end, even when her mom told her to run after the driver so she can pay, the driver still did not accept the payment.

In the Philippines, most of us are raised to be family oriented. Most of the time, when the parents of a household is already 60 or older, their kids usually let them stay at home and then take care of the bills and expenses.

On the other hand, there are parents that we can’t help but admire for working hard to be able to provide for their family even when they are already old.

More so when they are working abroad and are sacrificing the hardship of being far from their family. This is the story that one netizen who is working in Hong Kong shared.

Facebook User, Amelou Saqueza shared photos of her and an old man who appears to still be a Jollibee crew despite his age.

Comments on her post confirmed that senior citizens are indeed helped by most Asian countries so they can still work if they still want to.

Posts like this bring out the pride and respect that we have for OFWs who are working hard far from their families.

What is age discrimination

In some countries, people are forced to resign from their work when they reach a certain age (commonly 60 years old) even if they are still strong enough to work.

Some companies also prefer younger workers even if the older one is more established and qualified.
