BBC Screen One: Filipina Dream girls  on DVD

Filipinas in Luzon Philippines marry British men
Writer: Andrew Davies / Producer: Jacinta Peel / Director: Les Blair


Great  Movie now on DVD  (2 hours w/Extras)
2 hour DVD about foreign romance issues and much about life in The Philippines. A little dated but most of it still true today.  Original airing 1991 or 1992.   I highly recommend it,   Jean
Grace Amilbangsa is both director and star of other Filipino movies. She plays lead role in this movie as Marietta Modestas, the Dream girl with a dangerous past. 
Filipina Dreamgirls - Four men from the UK fly to The Philippines on a "contact club" tour in search of the girl of their dreams.  Well done 92 minute movie with well known stars like David Thewles (Harry Potter movies), the legendary British funnyman Charlie Drake, popular character actor Bill Maynard, and talented as well as beautiful Filipina actress, Grace Amilbangsa.  Also: Angie V. Cantero, Roxanne Silverio, Andrea Arroyo, Sylvia Garde, Juliet Jimenez, Ressie Manuel, Majesty Gaerlan as the main dreamgirls, and Madonna de Vera as the lovestruck bargirl.
Not only is the movie full of laughs it addresses many important issues;  age difference, attractiveness, education, honesty, respect, acceptance, romance, love and commitment.  Almost all of movie is in PI so you see many places from go-go bar to sea-side resort and slum to fancy hotel.  Movie is in English
Movie shows how reality can get into way of Dream but also how reality can lead to new happy Dream.  I have tried for two years to get good clear tape of this BBC TV movie and my Hong Kong friend has made a good DVD with 20 minutes of extras: highlights of American Idol's, Fil-American, Jasmine Tias performance in Manila, Philippines video visit and three movie previews. This is the movie we have been waiting on and I recommend it highly. It's better than a Philippines travel video. Or other Asian travel guide, video, dvd, film, movie or book.  See photo gallery, reviews and screen capture pictures below.

Send Money Fast with! Cash to the Philippines - Free Delivery
Xoom is a great way to send money to The Philippines.  The cash can be picked up at over 400 Equitable PCI Bank locations.  FREE delivery is also available in many areas. Xoom is much less than Western Union especially on small amounts like under $200 the fee is usually half that of Western Union (i.e. send $50 for only a $5 fee).  Even on larger amounts the savings are substantial and in many cases the locations are much more convenient as Equitable PCI Bank has branches in small towns and shopping areas all over The Philippines.  While you need Internet access and a bank account or credit/debit card to make a transaction, the recipient does not need either a bank account or Internet connection to get the money.  You will receive an email notification when the money has been delivered or picked up.

They have an arrangement with PayPal to actually transfer the money.  PayPal offers ease and flexibility, accepting all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express), as well as all major debit cards and direct transfers. PayPal successfully completes over 600,000 transactions per day with over 30 million accounts in 38 countries worldwide. I have used PayPal for six years without even a single problem - I highly recommend them.  And Equitable PCI Bank is very respectable Bank in Philippines so use the Xoom service with confidence.  Go Xoom
