What is with the anger Bikerdave? Many returning expats or foreign workers fase similar problems as expats, they have picked up parts of other cultures and maybe dislikes for parts of (modern) Filipino culture. likely that list contains a fourth catagory 1B prices for Balikbayan, the money comming in from them likely is what keeps the country going but if they accept a foreign nationality they also lose a lot of rights in their birthcountry, often their opinion/influence is about as wanted as that of expats and foreigners. Foreigners making a living in the Philippines just charge foreigner prices as well btw but they do not bother about pricing in the lower catagory. Well I guess you had some bad experiances with the group, I just do not buy that 'looking down on locals', people that use that are often using it as a form of emotional blackmail or envy them (well that is a part of Filipino culture I often run into and find very unpleasant).
