I decided it was time for a serious change in my life, so I saved for a year, sold my car and anything else that could be sold, bought a one-way ticket and left the UK with nothing but my backpack. It was whilst travelling through Laos by motorbike with my best friend that I stumbled across this young Filipino backpacker. I instantly felt she was different from all of the girls I met while backpacking, and we hit it off straight away. Although we went our separate ways shortly after, we kept in touch. After two months, Kach came to visit me in Hanoi for two weeks, where I had set myself up as an English teacher.
Well, two weeks has since turned into almost two years, 7 countries, many random jobs and countless stories to tell!

Being from the United Kingdom, you inevitably become accustomed to Western ways and of course in turn, Western women. Open arms. Open doors. A person? At my door? How strange! Not only that, but quite literally out of nowhere, there will appear enough food to feed a small village for a week. Filipino breakfast — Adobo — Lots of meat, marinated in vinegar, soy sauce and garlic…with rice! Tocino — Pork belly the fattiest, tastiest bit!
One thing that shocked me, however, was the choice of breakfast food. Read her work: Choose your career or go travel? Why not both? Growing up in Africa, I had plenty of opportunities to observe my parents negotiating down the price of everything from fruit and vegetables, to decorative woodcarvings and even ahem speeding tickets. So obviously some of this bargaining power must have rubbed off on me, right? However, let it be crystal clear that this is not the same as subservient; personally I want a relationship, an equal partner. Be sure not to take her for granted though.
Kach often tells me that although many Filipinos are very patient, if you push them too far, they could really hurt you. All I can say is this — whether it be eating pork fat for breakfast, god-awful singing or embarrassing bargaining techniques, life is a whole lot more interesting this way.
