he word expat isn’t being used anymore. Afam is the new term to refer to ‘A Foreigner Assigned in Manila.’
You might have a friend who has a foreigner boyfriend. You can refer to them as ‘afams’. When used in a sentence you can say, “Uy ang gwapo naman ng afam mong boyfriend!” (Uy, your afam boyfriend is so handsome!)
Even local celebrities have had relations with afams; here are twelve pinay celebrities with their afam boyfriends.
