  1. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to find a good Philippine lady through a online dating service?
    I joined Cherry Blossoms. Seems like most of the pretty women are scammers. Its hard to find the good ones. I only have 2 weeks vacation so I would like to establish something with a lady beforehand. Is there a better online service or does anyone have better idea?

    • ANSWER:
      Nope.
      Stay away from online dating websites.
      Facebook and friendster is still ok so far.
      Stay away from pinays who are unemployed/jobless.Period.

      Best places to meet pinays with good breeding:
      Museums,bookstores,churches,conventions
      Pinays will like you if you have few or no excess baggage.
      Lastly,remember,not all pinays like foreigners to be their fiancee/hubby,

  2. QUESTION:
    When is a better time to visit Japan, spring or fall?
    I'm going to be studying abroad in Nagasaki this upcoming spring semester, and I'm wondering if I should switch to the fall semester. I'm mostly worried about the weather, especially typhoons and the heat, but I can't find all that much about it online. Any tips and info would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      If you are worried about weather, typhoons generally come in the fall or late summer. It's October now and it is still warm in Tokyo, Nagasaki is warmer still. It doesn't really get hot (and humid) until late June or July and stays that way through September. It is a bit rainy in June though.
      In the spring you have the chance to see the beautiful cherry blossoms around the beginning of April. It is not yo be missed. So in my opinion you should just keep you dates in the spring, it's a much better time here. People are also in a better mood.

  3. QUESTION:
    Do Louis Vuitton papillon bags have a cloth interior?
    I've had a Louis Vuitton bag for a couple of years and am currently looking to buy another one. While searching, I began to question the authenticity of my bag. Until now, I'd thought it was real, but I've seen pictures of bags online with a cloth interior. My bag (certificate, upside down print on one side etc) has no cloth interior at all, just dark red leather (as in, the bag of the outside) and has "LOUIS VUITTON PARIS made in France" printed on it, nothing else. Should there be a serial number printed inside? Should it have a cloth interior? It's the papillon monogram cherry (not cherry blossom, the actual fruit) bag.

    So you know exactly which bag I mean: (googled, not my actual bag) http://www.ioffer.com/img/1108800000/_i/5694567/t_1.jpg

    I don't know anything about textiles or handbags, please help! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Did the leather handles oxidize as you wore the bag more?(real LV handles change from light to dark honey brown with use).. or are the handles EVEN leather?

      - yes, there should be a cloth material inside along with a date and serial code.. as far as it saying LOUIS VUITTON PARIS..." inside, well it varies by the type of lv bag. also check and see if the gold buttons say LOUIS VUITTON , its all about the small detail

      - Vuitton is not sold at many stores, really just on elux.com and the Vuitton Boutiques.(their own stores)

      - the bag you are talking about costs more than 1,200 if its real. you know honestly how much you paid for it and where you got it..

      the quality, stitching and workmanship are dead giveaways if the bag is authentic or not. by the way it feels and smells, its very easy to tell the difference. is it cheap vinyl or sturdy lv canvas?

      however there are also replicas that look almost the same as an authentic one, but one or two things may be slighty off (different detail, interior etc.)

      and please dont even consider buying off IOffer. no authentics there, so dont bother comparing those pics either.

      what i suggest doing is getting clear STOCK pictures from online of the bag you have and do a comparision. there are alot of different ways you could tell. if theres an LV store near you, you could get it inspected for authenticity (however, ive heard stories of the bags being taken away if they were of replica quality since they are illegal)

      Good luck also with finding your new Vuitton bag.

  4. QUESTION:
    Do you think nowadays there's still Filipino Mail-to-Order Brides?
    Do this kind of exploitation to women still exist in our society? or is it now changed to online dating?

    • ANSWER:
      ...if all parties concerned are fully aware of what they are getting into, where is the exploitation? look at it as a business arrangement between consenting adults and everything will be in proper perspective. for us onlookers, we are neither to judge nor to judge!!!

      from good old wiki...

      Mail-order bride is a label applied to a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another - usually more developed - country.[1]

      Historically, mail-order brides were women who listed themselves in catalogs and were selected by men for marriage. Sometimes the men and women involved were citizens of different countries, e.g. women from European countries moving to the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries, and sometimes they involved citizens of the same country.

      Mail-order brides traditionally hail from developing countries, major examples being Colombia, Venezuela, Thailand and to a lesser extent from Mexico, Philippines, Vietnam, India and China. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, however, large numbers of eastern European women also advertised themselves in such a way; primarily being from Russia, Ukraine and Moldova. In the past, international marriage agencies such as Cherry Blossoms allowed women to sign up to be listed in picture magazines; now the Internet has largely supplanted this method. Men who list themselves in such publications may be referred to as mail-order husbands. Nations that often receive mail-order brides are the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Korea, Taiwan, Germany, and Australia.
