Top 10 Most Stupid Things About Philippines.


Recommended Posts

I was at the Waterfront Casino last night and ordered a beer at the bar. I only had a P1,000 note and they said " Sorry sir we don't have change". I smiled and said, "this is a casino, plenty of change here".

 

This didn't register, so I just walked away in disbelief.

So it makes it ok to make generalizing, racist comments if you have the same heritage?  I think that is a stupid thing to do.  Perhaps one of the 10 most stupid things in the Philippines.

It's really only a pain at times because our own background, in our own Countries is just different. Get over it. We are not in our own Countries anymore.   I have lived in the region for over 10

Judging by her answers, I think your wife has been gone too long or never knew in the 1st place. NOW I know why you're always asking questions here.

An old man working in his field was approached by a man from the road.

"What kind of people will i find ahead of me?" he is asked

Old man replies, "What were the people like where you came from?"

"Why they were no good rotten scoundrels that lie and cheat"

"That is the same kind of people ahead" the old man replies.

 

Another man approaches with the same question.  The old man again asks, "What were the people like where you came from?"

the man replies, "they were good people, always willing to help each other out.  Honest and fair."

 

The old man replies "that is just the kind of people you will find ahead of you."

 

 

People and places are similar.  If your looking for everything wrong you will find it.  Just like habits in those you love you can learn to overlook it and focus on what you love or let the things you don't like eat you alive.

Unless they have changed the system I think you get 2 free beers and a meal in the poker room

Last time I was in there I registered and got 500 pesos of chips , drank my 2 beers , ate and chatted with my fellow players and left with 430 pesos after an hour..as .it did not feel like I was getting the cards

 

No change at the casino? you have to wonder if they really want to make money or not?

so maybe a towel is really what you're after.

everyone can always use a towel

 

I guess somebody has to do the deed and provide the famous quote.... So here we go...:

 

"A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to- hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

 

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."

I have lived in the region for over 10 years, and I love it, despite the 'bumpy roads' because its different from my own Country. None of these problems are Philippines specific by the way, go to other local Countries and you'll experience much the same.

 

At the moment I wouldn't live anywhere else, mind you I used to say that when I lived in Thailand - but I can say with some certainty that I would not live in Europe again.

 

Yes, living here is different and challenging, and what is life if not a challenge? Life is for living, so live it. Do you really want to go back to your Country of origin, wasn't there a reason why you left it?

If I wanted a standard "United States" quality of living situation I wouldn't leave the states, the appeal of being somewhere else is just that! being somewhere else.
