Sole, I can see anything offensive with what you wrote and it's true that not everyone in the Philippines is poor and will appreciate cheap booze or rice. If the family one marries in is a typical Bacolod family they will consider breeding important. That's how it is there. And that needs to be taken into account. If that is not the case on other islands and the family is poor that is then a different matter.

If you are staying with the family, its wise to offer money (or rice). You presence will "disturb" their daily routine. They will mind what to feed you & will always be attentive to your comfort & will always be there so that you will not be bored.

Discuss that with your gf. Through her, you offer your "share" of expenses. There is no harm in trying.
