The next surprise comes when you look at the menu and notice that all local beers (San Miguel Pale Pilsener, Sin Mig Light & Red Horse) are only 70 Pesos a bottle but instead order a glass of draft beer (also San Miguel) which is the same price.Ruth, Walter Lee's wife, is expecting and sees any additional money as just another way to get by.Lena would like to use the money to provide for the practical future needs of the household and doesn't personally need any funds for herself.And most of the time that would be a Filipina bar girl.Back home they may tell their family and friends of all those beautiful beaches with huge palm trees and the most delicious and sweetest mangos they have ever eaten, but when it comes to talking about encounters with Filipinas they may admit that they met someone but usually claim she’s not a bar girl, sex worker, prostitute or any kind of hooker. Because Filipina bar girls seem so different than the common western stereotype of prostitutes.Just while you watch that skinny 19 year old or so local girl process your order you feel how someone puts her hand on your shoulder. (notice the slight difference in words compared to Thailand where they ask “Where you from? ”) What is also different to the land of smiles: Upon serving your drink you need to sign the “invoice”, basically just a small paper stating the name of your drink along with the price.
You turn around and look in the dark eyes of a bar girl who makes the impression that you are destined for each other even before her asking the standard introduction questions: Hi, how are you? They do that to prevent issues from (drunk) customers who claim they have ordered only three lady drinks and not four and the like.
Maybe you haven’t made this experience yet and if you already have then you may just skip this section.
This is what a typical visit in a girly bar looks like: You enter the bar, get a little shy when several young and super sexy girls turn their eyes on you (but at the same time notice a feeling of importance you haven’t had in a long, long time).
Then she might just hope that you really like her and become her boyfriend and support her that way.
Filipina bar girls know that most westerners don’t like the idea of paying for sex so what they sometimes do is ask you for helping out with their little “problems”.
Most of them are really looking for one guy who provides them (and usually their families as well) financial stability in the long run.
