Hello! I'm Wise, a Filipina with a deep love for my country and a passion for sharing its beauty with the world. As a writer, blogger, and videographer, I capture the essence of the Philippines through my eyes, hoping to give foreign visitors a true taste of what makes these islands so special.

From the vibrant streets of Manila to the tranquil beaches of Palawan, my journey is about uncovering the hidden gems and everyday wonders that define the Filipino spirit. My articles and blogs are not just travel guides; they are invitations to explore, to feel, and to fall in love with the Philippines, just as I have.

Through my videos, I strive to bring the sights, sounds, and stories of my homeland to life. Whether it's the local cuisine, the colorful festivals, or the warm smiles of the people, I aim to prepare visitors for an authentic experience.

For those seeking more than just a vacation, the Philippines can be a place of discovery and, perhaps, even love. My goal is to be your guide, not just to the places you'll visit, but to the experiences and connections that await in this beautiful corner of the world. Welcome to the Philippines, through my eyes. Let's explore together!

  • America is not that great now living cost is so high. Philippines is the best. I hope one day I can move there and live and travel around the islands.

  • Hello Brandon and Arlene: This question is for you Arlene, did you pay Chistianfilipina on their app to put yourself out there? I have two nieces that are interested in a foreigner. They did ask and I said I don’t know. Good luck guys and you two are cute couple.

    • Hello Marites me and my husband also met at Christian Filipina,if both of you are a free member you will not be able to see each other s messages it’s so happen that my husband upgrade his account after 2 weeks of joining that’s why we see our messages and that’s how we start…But you can join as a free member,tell your nieces,Goodluck

  • Bro if you can keep up for your Vlogs,that might cut off a lot saving while here in the US!
    Works for others and why not you!
    Just saying,not much happening lately here in US!

  • Hi Brandon and Darlene ..Its ok .Shout out from Fe New york. ArleneWhere u r in leyte .Im from leyte bayba y city ..Patag.

  • Thanks for loving Philippines and taking care of my Filipina Sister Arlene. I work here in U.S. and Philippines is the best place!

  • I cannot believe that you have 11 years age gap 😱 it only looks 2 or 3 age gap. Keep uploading videos! I am also in a relationship with an amazing American guy ❤️❤️😊

  • What type of job does Brandon have that allows him to take time off and travel to the PI every six months? That could be a lot of time away from the office.

  • Hi Guys, new sub I truly wish you both many blessings you make a such a beautiful couple 🎉keep the videos coming I will be watching from NY…

    God Bless be safe 🙏🏻

  • Curious what site you met on?
    I’ve been looking for a filipina on one free Filipina dating site but met a scammer and caught her in a lie so I’ve have been trying to find a good site.

    • It’s on the Description, you can try that one ! Just be aware every site there’s a scammer but this one is one of the legit ! Thank you! ❤

    • This is the most common question we get. We only recommend Christian Filipina (Link in the description above). Most of the sites have fake accounts and lots of scammers. CF does a great job of eliminating those as much as possible. Additionally, other sites sell personal data after you close your account and your email will be filled with spam and junk mail. You get what you pay for! Thanks for watching!

    • Hey,there Ronnie…im looking for the same and i can feel youi’ve been in dating sites as well but only met A**holes😕 but still still trying😅

  • The age gap makes me “Kilig” 😂 nice Edit Brandon 😂 ur now using an effect! And thats perfect, GoodJob! GODBLESS YOU BOTH🙏

  • So kilig nman this video,. will i have a lot of questions to both of you, but I think time for me to sign in that dating site😂😂😂😂

  • Hi bro,.I’m following your channel for long time. Just now i arrived Cebu airport to meet my girl… So good and kind people here

  • Cute couple. Arlene is very exotic looking; Filipino here from the USA. Enjoy the journey and be as a team always. God bless you two.

  • it’s very hard for foreigners to leave the country with a filipina. The people in the immigration are so strict. Saw some videos about it because the officrs probably think that the foreigner is trafficking which I think is good because they’re being protective of filipinas.

  • Brandon you hit the jackpot Arlene is one of the most beautiful lady you could have met. Treat her with respect

  • Good luck guys!👍🇵🇭🇧🇭
    Take care of her bro, she will love you in return…forever 🙏😊

  • Recent engaged to a Filipina. She’s from Eastern Samar with is close to Leyte. Currently working out the paperwork to get her to the United States. Watching you guys gets me excited about the prospect being married to her. Our story is a little different. I meet her through my step-mother who is a Filipina from the same village as my fiancé.

  • Wow…..I am from Yakima, Washington and my filipina wife is also from Leyte. You Seattle and Leyte as well.

  • You too look good together, hoping all things work out for the best.
    I’ll be visiting my LDR in July/ August.
    Take care guys, enjoy quality time together

  • I met my angel on Asian friendly, I am so blessed, the visa to America is very difficult and expensive. i wish you the best

  • Howdy Neighbor I’m In Oly. I’m trying for the second time to find my Filipina too, the 2nd time isn’t going any better than the last time. So, I may have to try again at some distant time. sigh

  • Look great pair hopefully be couple in the future. I’m from Leyte , but been in the US since 1995.

  • Good luck! I visited my fiancé there in San Miguel Leyte near Tacloban last fall. We are working on our K1 visa now. I’m too young to retire so she will come to the US , in a way it’s a good thing…she will get the benefits and citizenship which will make her life better in the long run. You are 35 and close to retirement? Wow. Things in PH keep getting more and more expensive, would be tough to move there at your age…well unless your rich. Good luck, I hope everything works out well for both of you!

    • Congrats on the K1. Not rich just comfortable. I’ve been planning for about a decade to move to SE Asia so its always been a goal I’ve worked towards. Thanks for watching Eric!

    • I agree with this. You should move her to the u.s . she can get a dual citizenship , citizenship or green card so she can also work and save with you

    • @Tinggotme Y Also she can get social security in both countries. Also she can collect my SS when i’m gone. A lot of thing that can be good for her in the future. Guys that refuse to take their women to the US don’t seem to care about their spouse’s future after they are gone. If she decides to move back later she will live well.

  • Keep sharing your love story mistakes are learning experiences so don’t worry about the little things just worried about each other and the rest will come naturally best of luck to both from a fellow American

  • Been busy with Life. Now catching up with your videos. This is a great one, its so honest you guys answering the questions. Great Couple.

  • You guys are incredible and inspiring. I met my Filipina a few months ago and we’re meeting this October. Hope you guys build a wonderful life together. God bless!

  • Your jowa is handsome,he doesn’t look like 35 years old. Hope magtagal kayo at more videos to come. Respect each other….

  • She speaks good english give her a few years living in the US of A and she will become a pro. She reminds me of Janine Tugunon in certain angles. Good luck and have a happy life.

  • Keep making videos of your love story to keep us updated.. goodluck and love her cause shes innocent and true women.

  • I have been following since his first visit walking past her and then realizing it as I have super high hopes for them. I have one trip planned for this year and setting up a second one with hopes of staying there as a local expat buddy has a house just outside Cebu but I want to travel and see some of the different islands before settling down. Thought about going online but want to be firm in when I’ll be boots on the ground as I am planning on staying there and then I can meet a Soulmate. But will keep options open and chatting .

  • What is the advantage of building a house in the PH? Rent, at least for a year or two after you decide to move (*if indeed you move). You will not own the house or property – you’re Pinay wife/gf/fiancee will own it.
    My wife owns 300 m property there, but will not build. There is no reason. Her home is now in the US and she says owning/building a house there is just for show and pride.
    You are a young man, if you have some sort of income that will support you and your new wife/gf/fiancee for life, you might be able to live there, but just remember, one day you will no longer be a newlywed and things change.

  • My question is did you decide to officially be in a relationship before or after you two met in person?

  • It doesn’t take a year to get a driver’s license, I’m a Filipina… Arlene must be in a very remote place.

  • I know that makes you feel good when she says that’s her first time but please take that with a grain of salt 💯

  • You guys look like a snug pair of gloves. Everything feels right. Good looking kids. Good luck out there and keep up the good plans.

  • Thanks for sharing your story along with the website you used. Many guys have been scammed so it’s nice to know a site that has some credibility.

  • New subscriber and need more videos!! You two look great together and hello from Florida. Wishing you many blessings.

  • hnd halata na mayroon kau age gap sis husband ko 63 ako nmn 36 big age gap kmi halata talaga na bata pa ko sa husband ko pero kau hnd halata congratulations next blog kasal na sana dalhin ka nya dito sa usa someday ❤

  • Wow. Nice couple.
    Your story is similar to ours.
    Brandon, I am from Seattle too! I am in Auburn area.
    My wife and I met online in July of 2021. Got married in Philippines in November of 2022.
    Bought property there. Plan to build in a few years.
    My wife will be coming to USA soon. Her visa application has been approved. Waiting for her interview.
    Congratulations on your successes so far!

  • NEW TO YOUR CHANNEL, DID THE PROCESS MYSELF. AND BROUGHT MY ASAWA FROM MINDANAO TO LAS VEGAS. IF YOU MOVE TO THE USA WITH ARLENE SHE WILL SHORTLY BECOME ‘AMERICANIZED’, NOT A GOOD THING . GOOD LUCK WITH ALL THE ‘PAPERWORK’.

  • Me and my british husband also meet online in a dating app way back 2018😅 🫣 We got married last year

    • Go one the dating sites. Be authentic and never lie, even a small one foreigners don’t like that. Click the link in the description. Good luck!
