Suggestions   on  Calling  Filipina

Acculinq Card good for many countries.  From USA to  ~ALL~ Philippines is only 26 cents per minute with NO connect fees.  To "Hong Kong" is only 9 cents.  ~~ Teri & Jerry use this "Acculinq" card to call me in Hong Kong & Xtra Clean for Philippines ~~Filipina are raised to be very proper and polite. This means an unexpected telephone call from a stranger is very uncomfortable and we not sure how to act or what to say. This makes it more likely to go badly and hurt start of relationship. So 1st write a nice letter introducing yourself.  I have a sample to guide you but change it to make it your own style.  Just keep it simple, plain English and while you should tell of yourself avoid "life story" or "sound like bragging."  Put your phone number in letter and say if she calls you, you will get her number and call her right back to talk.  Also in letter ask her what is best times to call as often girl does not have a phone in her family's house.  Card at left is best I find if calling from USA.  Some girls (especially Hong Kong) calling 1st is OK - just be careful, OK?

    When calling OCW (Overseas Contract Worker - sometimes called OFW) keep following in mind:

  • Technically they are always working except for Sundays
  • They are using their boss' phone & must keep it short
  • Private phones are usually cellular and may cost her US 6 to 19 per minute to receive calls
  • OCW  workers only make about US$480 a month
  • Be careful about time difference.  We are 13 hours (12 during "daylight savings months) ahead of NYC, USA
  • Chinese bosses are very strict on Filipina helpers so please be understanding.   For example,  if she has to hang-up often to answer her boss's phone calls.  Also, many times she must keep her cellular phone secret from her boss.
  • Calling rates now much lower if you use a good phone card.  I recommend these:
    This is a great card to use for long calls and you can buy online and use right away.  Cards with no connect fees like "Just Call" or "C card"  are convenient for you if she has to hang-up often to answer her boss's phone calls or has a mobile phone that loses connectionOften she must keep her cellular phone secret from her boss - Chinese bosses are very strict on Filipina helpers so please be understanding.  
    This is a great card to use anytime as it is a permanent card with monthly statement and has NO connect fee   Once you know when you can reach them and they can talk longer try extra low-rate cards like "Cool" as on longer calls they are less even with the connect and monthly fees.   Cool is my current favorite for calling The Philippines.  Jean

My book has become much larger than I had expected because there is soooo much to share.
So many courtships between Filipina and Western gentlemen end in heartbreak for no good reason - simple misunderstandings.  Well, maybe not so simple, but most are easily avoidable.  That is why frank and detailed insights into my culture are so important for Western gentlemen to successfully avoid misunderstandings during courtship with my sister Filipina.  I have spent over a year researching and writing a book, Filipina Courtship Secrets.   As I have interviewed hundreds of Filipina during my Personal Searches for European and American gentlemen, I have gathered great information to share with you.  I have answered the many questions you have ask me this past year.  CLICK here for short list of questions I answer.   Intimate secrets that are not in other books or websites - that is for sure!
