    hmmm... ASEAN countries have similar corruption perception levels (from transparency.org). Malaysia is the exception... borderlining on being "acceptable"

    Malaysia 5.1
    Vietnam: 2.6
    Philippines: 2.5
    Indonesia: 2.2
    Myanmar: 1.8
    Thailand: 3.8
    Laos: 3.3

    I've been to a lot of places. I was assigned in Nigeria (Abuja) once, for a couple of weeks, and I tell you, Philippines is PARADISE, compared to Nigeria! Yung tubig sa hotel na tinuluyan namin, light brown ang kulay. Then, kada punta namin sa jobsite, meron kaming escort na military. Delikado mag-ikot ng walang kasamang locals, lalo na sa gabi.

    OT:

    Yep, I can relate to what you are saying. Hindi nga kami lumabas ng gabi 'dun kahit anong aya ng host namin. Buti nga sa 'yo eh tubig lang 'yung brown. 'Dun sa unang tinuluyan namin, yung watercloset at lavatory eh brown sa dumi. Hindi nga ako naligo at nag-jerbs nung first two days.

    "The Philippines is a rich nation trying hard to be poor." Can't exactly remember who said this line pero I agree with him. We have the best of everything, the brightest minds in politics and government included. Unfortunately, some minds are too bright that they are blinded by it and their selfish ambitions and vested interests. If only we can get our acts together, nothing is impossible for the Filipino. I believe in what we can do and achieve. It's never too late to start over again.

    Hindi ako naniniwala na ang pilipinas ay "poor"! bakit kamo,ang taas ng percentage ng auto industries sa atin,nakiki-pag away pa ang ibang customer sa car dealer,dahil nauubusan sila ng mga demand model car nila,mga ofw na nag re-remit na kutakot-takot na dollar at nagpapagawa nang mga malalaking bahay na negosyante.laging puno ang mga naglalakihan mall,ang night life eh buhay na buhay at higit sa lahat ay up-dated tayo sa lahat nang bagay,saka na ako maniniwalang "poor" na tayo kapag wala nang nag papagawa ng mga malalaking mall at depot...
