    Another wake up call that many will chastize or ignore. Reality sucks.

    Question now, what are we going to do about it? Seems like the problems he mentioned we know of for years and nothing has been done.

    We need action. Continuous action.

    asb75 " Totoo naman lahat nang sinasabi sa blog, tulad ko isang OFW every year im paying OEC, property taxes & etc. Im quite dissapointed of how Manila turn out. Naiisip ko tuloy saan napupunta yun binababayad namin sa OEC? Doon na lang mayroon na dapat silang funds para maimproved man lang ang airport. But still nothing happens for the past 10 years."



    Speaking of OEC, noong huli kong alis, yung isang duplicate nabigay ko kay misis para exempted na sya sa tax pagbalik nya dito sa Muscat, so, yung original ang binibigay ko sa immmigration, AYAW ba naman tanggapin at gusto daw e yung duplicate or else daw ay magbabayad ako ng 1500 tax.

    Ano ba namang klaseng patakaran yun ng immigration, mas maganda ngang proof yung original kesa duplicate. Kung hindi ka ba naman manginginig sa galit, GRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    Napa-isip tuloy ako kung ano ang impression ng Brit boss ko (who was re-assigned to HK) on his five-year expatriation here in Manila?



    Tinanong ko lang siya once: "Do you drive here?" ... sabi niya "Nah, no plans."

    Actually nobody likes such "interferences"...

    Makes me remember when an American journalist said Brazilian former president Lula da Silva is an uneducated Marxist drunk and almost got expelled from Brazil. This is quite a 3rd-world syndrome, there will always be a corrupt politician telling lies and saying he's "fighting the imperialism" in a way too similar to the Hitler's national-socialism...

    And also to demand a formal apology.
    These "student councils" are taken over by left-wingers pretending to be "revolutionary", so instead of studying their heads are turned to the "misery industry"...

    Actually kung medyo matagal ka nang nagtatrabaho o nag nenegosyo, mawawala yung idealism eh, nung fresh grad ako ang iniisip ko nun i will make a difference in this world. Pero after numerous experiences with the govt and govt. people and fellow citizens na iilan lang ang nag she share ng same idealism, in the end parang just do my share in a small way nalang, pay my taxes, follow the law, teach my kids the proper way..Hanggang dun nalang talaga eh.

    Ang pinaka di ko masikmura (kumbaga ang taga gobyerno tanggap na, na ganun talaga ang kalakaran, it doesn't surprise me) is yung mga ka deal ko na aral sa magagandang unibersidad na magaganda ang posisyon sa kanilang kumpanya, di naman kailangan ng extra money kung titingnan ang kanilan katayuan sa buhay, bago pumirma humihirit pa ng por da boys...putcha parang hindi dahil sa kahirapan kaya maraming corruption, talagang nasa dugo na ng pinoy kahit mayaman o edukado.
