Sorry Dave, I know this might be a pedantic remark on a relatively minor point in the bigger picture but, couldn't help thinking as I read the above - the Philippines have 7000 islands and islets of outstanding natural beauty, with a mangrove forest or a coral reef never too far, and your good friend is missing leafy sidewalks and man-manicured urban parks? :)


I agree with both, I'll take the latter any day of the week. Give me a double outrigger canoe to an isolated island, with a cute sunkissed honey and a cooler of beer and I'll be a very happy man.

@Banano,

You are a little out-of-line here. That country has almost 100 million people in it with the rich government keep the wealth among themselves and not every Filipino that expats from the RP is sending money back to their families. They live and die by the Catholic mantras of Anti-abortion and Be Fruitful & Multiply so they have an overpopulaton vs. GDP scalable problem. They are a displaced node of Latin America in four different seas and an ocean; Spain just recognized the Philippines as part of the Spanish legacy worldwide just a few years ago.

You were blessed to be born & raised in the Anglo Big 5 (Anglosphere). Kinda of like the 80s Big East Champsionship: Villanova Wildcats is New Zealand....the UK is the Syrcause Orangemen...the USA is St. John's.....et al.

I don't see you talking s.hit about Chinese whom hack-up phlegm and splat it to the ground at that moment no matter what! In Santiago de Chile, the cab drivers piss right by their taxi's while they are on extended break in fear of losing a potential customer. In NYC, they don't allow people to use public bathrooms so you have to p.iss in the streets which leads to being fined by NYPD pork patrol (if caught). The actions of these people (except the NYPD) are pragmatic IMHO.

So if you feel that Filipinos are nasty, then you have not hit not even a fifth of the spectrum of filthy people based on their respective nations.
It's time to expatriate to evade your fate; it's time to expatriate before the barn door permanently closes on "US" sheep.

Filipinos really do not care for their own country. They have a mentality of "ruin everything." This is a common mentality for most poor people; they continually make bad choices that prevent anything good ever happening in their lives, like, you know, rising out of absolute poverty.

Although the undeveloped parts of Asia do tend to have trash everywhere. In China, most third-tier cities are like that too. But they have a lot more room there, as well.

Filipinos have the worst mentality about it, though, because unlike Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans, they don't do anything to give themselves a better future. "God will take of it." Yeah, I guess God told you to steal and trash your own country too, scumbag.

Yep I agree for sure. It is just interesting to see what people consider important or deal breakers.

I can think of some airlines I don't want to fly. China Airways, the stewardess is sexy, but a little intense.

Or American Airlines, the stewardess is ugly, angry and crazy.

Or take anything at all seriously. And don't ever try to build a better life because God will take care of it. And don't work because you can just steal.

That kind of culture may seem fun at first, but there is a massive underbelly to it.

The culture is terrible. It is in no short supply of hot sluts, however. That's the only reason I will ever go back.

Not to move the post of the discussion, but US society and culture too have a lot to be hated about. There seems to be a measure of Catholic fatalism ("the Divine Providence will take care of it, as long as we're good people") in Filipinos, but it's really only attributable to ignorance and mental laziness, certainly not to a deeply felt religious belief.

The hard core of productive people in the Philippines are all educated at Jesuit schools and universities. They have access to an extremely rigorous process or intellectual and moral education and they are taught very well that hard work and compassion for the weak are key to success in life. Unfortunately, that is and remains an elite, however powerful it might be.

I was lucky enough to meet a few of these men and women in Davao and I can assure you that their mix of intellectual and human qualities is almost impossible to find anywhere else in Asia, especially in those societies shaped by Confucianist or Hindu philosophies, and probably even in many Western countries.
