This is part of the Filipino problem. Yes they will try and ignore you be it government or big business's. But enough complaints, enough voices, and enough loss of money and they do start to listen. Why do you think foreigners get "special" treatment it seems when we go into offices? Why do internet provides rush to send us foreigners techs when our internet is crap and sometimes up our bandwidth for free? Its because we get in their face, we get loud about it, we spread the word and we get others to join us. But if you just stay quiet and never try and fight nothing ever gets better, just worse. More people involved more power the people have. Its a bit sickening in ways that it often feels us foreigners are fighting more for the filipino people then the filipino people themselves are fighting for. I also have to agree the comment on brain drain may be sounding a bit harsh but mostly true. The Philippines sends its brightest and best overseas leaving very little of high intelligence behind besides those pulling all the strings. They few smarter left behind who don't go overseas are usually looking for a way to get out as well.
