Hey all. I’ll be straight with you – I am a Filipino. But no, I will not stupidly shout out “Filipino pride” or other BS like that, and I am definitely not offended by the posts here. Because it’s f’ing true.
I live in a small city somewhere in the Philippines, and my city suffers from the same thing you guys point out on this site (to name a few):
Motorcycles with obnoxiously loud exhaust pipes? We got ’em
Drunken idiots who can’t get enough of karaoke? We got ’em as well
Flips who will take advantage of other people, be they foreigners or fellow flips? You bet
Anyway, I’m hoping to share some experiences I’ve had in the 25 years I’ve been living here. To tell you the truth, it’s a pretty nice place, with beaches and whatnot – ruined by a corrupt government, and a rather unpleasant majority of inhabitants.
Thanks for having me here.Published in
