    They will not stop burning plastic just because you request it. You can’t change their habits just because you don’t like what they do. But, if you wait long enough, maybe not too far in the future, there will be a law against burning trash in City Limits. I am sure there are many Filipinos in the City who do not like burning trash in the open. Good things like this are happening a lot now.

    A lot of Foreigners here just don't how to behave in a civilized way, some even show not a little bit respect, and maybe they get a lot of problems - the other just doing fine, have never problems and just enjoy this beautiful country with the very friendly and happy people!
    There's no need to think about not buying a lot or something like that, if you are not member of the first described group of people!

    I left Dumaguete/Sibulan area last May 5 (2017) after a 6 months stay. I was in the process of building a home on 1000 sq. m, had already built a 2 metre wall and the mandatory storage shed and then established the foundation for the house. However, I was accosted by two fully masked motorcyclists in the remote area along Pancil Lo-oc while my two PH helpers were away at lunch and had a revolver making an imprint on my nose with the perpetrators demanding 100,000 Pesos. I left Negros Oriental within a few hours and arrived back to the safety of Thailand. I found the Dumaguete area to be dirty, dangerous, extremely hot and humid [just look at the rubbish in the river running through Dumaguete just before Robinson's Mall]. The only plus for the area was the exchange rate. However, it was a valuable experience and started a project which the family will have to finish as the g'friend at the time said she would not sell. I am so happy to be back in Thailand which I find to be clean, safe and the women are far, far more beautiful than the typical Negros Oriental woman

    If the very friendly and happy people start to shoot other people for whatever reason then in my book being friendly and happy doesn't count for much. That's simply not a civilized response to anything. And everybody, nice guy or not, is right to consider the fact that such people, happy and friendly on the outside but still ready to pull out a gun and use it exist here in bigger numbers than elsewhere.

    Still, a beautiful country nevertheless. Just never ever stop your vehicle when somebody on the side of the road wants you to.

    In informative story but it leads to the question: Did you happen to have 100K Pesos in your pocket and if so how did they know? Otherwise, how did you get away?

    OK, that's Your Opinion and maybe your ecperiences here.
    Neither in all that years that I traveled in the Philippines (2001-2010) nor since I live here (from 2011) I never had a bad, scary or unfriendly situation, with Pinoys (with some Foreigners I had some really stupid situations!) - and I am not going just the "secure" Regions or places).
    Compared to other Countries and Nations I feel pretty safe here and be welcomened by the people!
    But I am always very happy to read when people which not like it here, for their reasons, they just left and go in that "better places"!
    I know some people, which I meet in Bars and Restos, they should, instead of moaning and complaining about the circumstances here, better go back in their own Countries!
    The Philippines are very special and not everybody seems to enjoy that - I do!

    I agree with your comments 100%.
    Too many expats think the Philippines owes them something.
    We are guests in their country-if you don't like it then leave!!
