I'm saying everyone seems to be getting along fine there, except him. There is little privacy here, if he can't except that, he is in the wrong place.

Not a problem I've had. I've found people here give back as much or more than they get.

As with any culture, there are givers and there are takers. We see both.

Because he has standards. I was also pissed off by one of my neighbors at midnight and close enough to reason with him with a kitchen knife, but he just hid and by dawn he's gone (seems like a hired construction worker rather than the owner).

 

It's not even a poor neighborhood, but some people cannot stop being assholes until you beat the crap out of them or get rid of them completely. Had the same problem in Taipei too.

Sounds really courageous. Acting like that here will likely get you visited by two men on a motorcycle one day.  One is reasonably safe unless they show themself to be an asshole, at that time you will find most everyone to be your enemy. This is not Kansas, Toto.

Maybe I'm naive, but I gotta call bullshit on that one. I've heard the "two guys on a motorbike" story time and again and although I don't doubt that it has happened I just can't buy someone that probably couldn't muster up enough pesos to buy a bottle of Red Horse coming up with 10k or 20k because someone slighted them. Possible, yes. Likely? I doubt it.

 

If you have specifics please share.

Your friends must be more highfalutin than mine, P5000 is generally the local cost in Duma, or, a few bullets and a hit or two of shabu. Many of those that cannot afford a bottle of red horse will be happy to oblige.

 

"NOrPPO records showed a total of 19 murder cases in Negros Oriental for the month of October alone, and this prompted him to order police units to dissect and identify where in the province these murders took place."

Most of these were conducted by two men on a motorcycle. Seems that some can afford red horse.

 

I still maintain it is reasonably safe here, but if you go around pissing off all the locals, expect some repercussions.

In Cebu city? I'm not aware of any murder case after the robbery at Lapu-Lapu.

You mean I could deal with annoying neighbors by just P5000? That's good price indeed.

On another thread today or yesterday you implied most of the murders were extrajudicial killings of people involved in drugs. Now you are saying most are contract killings to avenge insults. It can't be both.
