    Who sends money back to the Philippines?

    Any members sending money over to the Philippines still?
    And if so is it on a regular basis? And what is if for? We know there are members with their loved ones over there so I do understand why you send money over.
    But what about the rest, do you send every now and again like a gift or birthdays​, or regularly for their bills?
    What about if someone needs something not medical? As we all would send cash for that I am sure.
    What about a new phone someone wants, a new motorbike or even a car, do you send money for that? What if it's a loan of a large amount, would you send that too?
    We are all different in what we send or don't send, but if it's for something you think they don't need, do you still send the cash anyway?

    I think maybe the title should read 'Who doesn't send money back to the Philippines'? We send every month, don't know why and don't ask it's easier...

    I was lucky I guess,my boys mum had a very good education,and came from a family with a couple of quid,but I always send lola something for her birthday I have helped mates over there when they are in deep doo never forget true mates ie people who helped you out without wanting payment



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    I have one true mate, so I may be lucky just having the one, but he has never had to bail me out but I know he would if ever I had to ask, plus I would do the same for him too.

    We don't send money every month. Birthdays, Christmas, and helping my wife's niece buy college books has been the extent of it. I have no problem sending a little extra if it doesn't put a strain on your own family. If you aren't in a financial position to give money to extended family then you shouldn't worry about it. Your family comes first.. If you have extra money AFTER you pay your bills, and add to your savings then that's ok. But, you shouldn't feel obligated to, or made to feel guilty if you don't. Just my opinion

    Hiya! good to be back

    I do send money/allowance to my father since he lives on his own now ever since my daughter moved out, got married to Mark, a Canadian guy, who is in Manila and will be staying for a year to help my daughter and grandaughter in sorting their papers to go to Canada. The money basically covers to pay for the bills, food & for the 4 doggies, too. Whatever is left that goes for him as his extra. When my husband was still alive we did not, and just send money for emergency. He is 80 yrs old but is quite healthy for his age so no problem for somebody to look after him. Besides, I'm the only one who can afford to. Having said that, I've been supporting the family (mom, dad, & my daughter) ever since so nothing new to me. Just glad to be of help instead of me asking for one

    Welcome back Sally.
    Hope you have sorted out all the things that were ahead of you. Have you made your mind up about staying too?

    Thanks Steve. After the ILR, I am taking my time in preparation for me taking the LIUK test but no rush. Been busy doing a bit of clearing here and now, and doing the usual stuff since I got back. Have finished (well almost!) renovating our house in the Phils., so now I plan to stay here for a while and do what needs doing with the house
