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.

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.

One thing that shocked me, however, was the choice of breakfast food.

I’ve always been accustomed to one or two pieces of bacon or a juicy Cumberland sausage in the morning, but now I get mood swings if I haven’t eaten half a pig and a kilo of rice by 9am! I’ve always been a little partial to loudly and drunkenly screaming out Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer,” but since being with Kach I’ve developed a sixth sense, which I have decided to call, ‘Microphonia.’ I can sense a Karaoke machine within a 20-mile radius and I’m quite prepared to kill for a can of Red Horse beer and the chance to sing Pusong Bato in a bar full of random strangers!There had to be more to life than walking into the same building every day, seeing the same people and doing pretty much the same things over and over again.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.What was supposed to be a two-week visit for them has since turned into almost two years together Back in 2005 and for about 10 years before, I was living in the UK, studying architecture and working 9-to-5s in different architectural practices.I had great employers and colleagues and although I enjoyed my work, I couldn’t help but feel there was something missing.If you want to find a good Filipina woman but you lived a thousand miles away from the Philippines, search them here.
