MANILA - Outgoing British Ambassador to the Philippines Asif Ahmad on Thursday said he intends to return and live in the Philippines after his diplomatic assignment to the Bahamas.

"The community of Filipinos that have totally won me over are children. That’s why I see myself playing a role in that when I come back," he told ANC's Headstart.

"Mga kaibigan sa Pilipinas, maraming salamat para sa panahon natin sa Pilipinas. Bilang balikbayan ako, kasi ang puso ay sa’yo. Maraming salamat," he said in straight Filipino.

In this interview, Ahmad, who served in Manila for 4 years, also revealed what he will miss most about the country and some pieces of advice he leaves his successor Daniel Pruce.
