The unspoken rule is that as soon as you buy her a lady drink you may touch her.But that doesn’t mean you can’t put your hand on the back when saying hello to someone.Either way, the average price would be like 2,000 Pesos.Some of the really attractive ones may be asking for 3,000 Pesos, but if you are getting on well enough it’s not unusual that she would be fine with just 1,000 or 1,500 Pesos.But don’t think that if a girl doesn’t go down with her price she doesn’t like you – it’s their job and usually only source of income to sleep with foreigners.
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.
Alternatively, at the sports bars things look a little different.
They also have sexy bar girls employed but they may not be bar fined out and so if you ask her if she wants to go with you or visit you at your hotel she’ll likely answer sure, but you’d either have to wait until she finishes work (2-3am) or take her number and contact her the next day so she’ll come over in the afternoon before work.For the bar girls in the Philippines it’s more like making a temporary living out of sleeping with foreigners until they find one who wants to take them as their girlfriend and provide ongoing financial support.
