    My wife told me lots of actresses and models in the Philippines are mistizas.
    Maybe one day Miss UK will be mestiza :eek:
    I hope it will be my daughter :)

    You only have to look at pinoy TV they all have a mestizo or Chinese look,real pinoys rarely get a look in.

    Seriously though I'd rather she would not go in for those kind of competitions.

    I preferred her curly hair, she got it straightened recently :) (that middle one)

    (edit: deliberately left the colour cold in the first two as that's what it is actually like in the house)

    I liked this shot too :)

    Janna wasn't born here but there is a fair chance she was conceived here, Ana got pregnant shortly after arriving in the UK in late 2007, I was only in the Phils for a week before we returned to the UK together.

    So there is a small chance that she was pregnant with Janna in this picture but chances are the wee one was made in the UK, probably England rather than Scotland but she spent a bit of time in Scotland back then.

    Yes, Druk1.
    I was very upset the last time I went to the Philippines as I realised that girls/ladies of Malay stock were not only shoved to the back of the queue, but were also not in the universities. The money is definitely in Chinese families there.

    Of course,you only have to look at their miss universe entries to realise that pinays are judged a rung below mestiza by their compadres,examples are pia wurtzbach,classic pinoy family name,born in germany german dad.Or catriona gray,born in Australia to a Scottish father.Their media is packed with similar,pinoy big brother caused a ripple a few years back,so much so it was mentioned that one of the contestants bucked the trend and was a real life genuine negrita from negros.I remember my missus tried to enter my son into a baby contest when we lived there,he was white as a sheet with brown hair,she was told he was mixed race so couldn't enter :lol:

    No play station in the house mate,they aren't good for children to be honest,she has a small kids kitchen and spends time in a restaurant kitchen,she loves pretending to cook things.

    I often wish I lived within easy striking distance of London.
    We went to the Natural History and the Victoria and Albert Museums last year and it was a wonderful day out for all the family.
    The only problem was that we walked so much, we were so tired towards the end of the day. :(
    We will stay in a hotel overnight next time and enjoy a full second day too.
