i was in three different hotels in three consecutive days. from one nice suite to another. different levels of service. three different lobby designs.
but the same scene: the senior citizen caucasian and his filipina lady escort. sometimes the tourists come as buddies. and they have breakfast with their dates.
the lady escorts dress up similarly at breakfast. in sandos and pekpek shorts and flipflops. and their long hair up in a bun, not so tidy but i guess sexy to their dates.
i dont mean to eavesdrop. but i overhear the same english-speaking styles (or attempts).
and the same look of boredom. yeah. boredom. they dont actually engage their dates in conversation. sometimes they don't even look at each other. the lady escorts play with their food. and wish they were somewhere else.
and somehow, that makes me feel sad.
