Guys, single and searching guys, psst, psst, Zamboanga! OMG! I was here 4 years ago on my big ride. Spent 5 days in Zamboanga City. Now I'm back on another ride, taken, but still, Holy Moses. I always tell all my friends around Duma, forget "fishing" here. Most of these chicks know the game. They get hit on everyday if they're lookers. Go elsewhere, where few foreigners go, pick a town, any town with a guesthouse, rent a room for a month or three, be seen, let your search be known, hand out calling cards, and I guarantee you will find your beauty queen. Why? Because down here we are unique. We are a catch. A "Province girl" who doesn't know what a "dating site" is. All the security crap about Mindanao is mostly BS. Dapitan-Dipolog is just a three hour ferry from Duma. Decent hotels in both. Only a handful of resident expats, and all those women. Going south, the pickins only get better. Sundangan, Liloy, Gutalag, Ipil, all are safe, (mostly Christian) and all have places to stay. (Edible food is another matter) Then there is the queen city, Zamboanga. We arrived this afternoon and took a stroll to a mall downtown. I couldn't believe how many beautiful girls I saw, and every one smiled at me like I'm some old rockstar. (the province girls come here for jobs) I have seen ZERO other foreigners here so far. Zambo City is only 35% Muslim. There's army guys everywhere. I wouldn't live here but it's fine for awhile. So boys. Forget Cupid and DIA, Whatsup and facebook. They are recipe's for a financial disaster. Pack your panniers, get on your bike, (do bring wheels) and get yo @ss to the Zamboanga Peninsula soon. Then take her back. (Remember Rule #4, NEVER live anywhere near her family.) Good Luck!
