Centrelink just told me that they want to cut the old age pension if the receiver is more than 12 weeks abroad at a time. Does anyone know about this?

I have just checked the Goverment web site on pensions ( pensions rates payable to people outside Australia.} This will give you a full account of pensions payable when out of the country.
Changes are being made all the time and it is best to contact Centerlink before leaving Australia.

under the current rule you MUST LIVE IN AUSTRALIA FOR TWO YEARS prior to applying for the aged pension.

If you are currently living in Philippines you have to go back to Aussie to apply.

I am in this situation and have 21 months before I am eligible to apply and relocate to Davao with Filipina wife
