-as mentioned, public service na weird
-->sobrang out of this world na reasoning ng mga immigration officers: dami nang proof na ipinakita na hindi naman mag tourist worker yung tao, inoffload pa rin
-->out of this world reasoning ng mga philippine embassy staff: ofw with oec appointment refused service just because her travel date is not so soon, or being refused service to update BM Online employment details dahil lang hindi pa naman uuwi yung ofw, aayusin lang daw kung uuwi na
-->padrino system: asawa ng barangay captain yung presidente ng TODA sa village namin, so lahat ng reklamo sa tricycle drivers are most of the time ignored.
 -->kandidato sa public office na marami nang ninakaw, tatakbo pa rin

-uneducated or stupid pricks
-->boboto kay [candidate name] kasi daw pogi, or dahil namigay ng P500
-->hindi nagpabakuna ng MMR sa anak dahil natakot sa dengvaxia
-->mga nagpapakalat and/or naniniwala sa fake news

-climate/weather:
-->calamity-prone (bagyo, lindol, etc) pero wala naman tayong control though

-mabagal at mahal na internet
-bulok na transportation system
-nakakabaog at hindi makatarungang trapiko
-mataas na presyo ng mga bagay bagay (pagkain, gasolina, pamasahe, utilities, etc)
-yung nagiging sukatan ng talino at dignidad ng tao yung kakayahan niyang magsalita ng Ingles
-mataas na buwis, hindi naman nakikita kung saan napupunta
-hindi ligtas ang sarili (sa kahit anong lugar at oras), pati mga gamit (na maiwan sa tabi)

...and etc (whatever already mentioned)

1. Tao - kelangan talaga ng revamp sa ugali ng tao. iilan lang talaga ang matino sa pinas, yung mga mayayaman especially politician puro greedy, yung mga mahihirap naman puro tamad at paawa. In general naman ng pinoy ay walang disiplina edukado o hindi.
2. Government - hindi na talaga uubra ang democracy dahil sa political dynasty, kelangan talaga ng batas militar para magkaron ng malaking pagbabago. Kahit gano kagaling ang leader wala rin dahil sa mga kontra na parties.
3. Quality of life - struggle everyday ang mga middle class. Para gumanda ang buhay makaafford ng sariling bahay at iba pang ariarian hindi sapat ang 1 job
4. Tax - maliit na sahod malaking tax
5. Consumer rights - puro palpak na produkto at serbisyo
6. Traffic
7. Poor public transpo - dapat talaga puro bus and trains na lang, no need for jeeps and tricycle. Mass transpo ang dapat sa pinas sa dami ng tao
8. Infidelity - laganap ang kabit at manloloko
9. Homosexuality - ang bilis nanganak, yung iba kahit bata pa lang minsan napupush or nakukunsinte (sorry sa mga pro)
10. Media - puro nega news and bias
11. Population - walang control
12. Justice system - napaka bagal at palakasan
13. Hospital/doctors - maghapon ka magiintay for a 10 minute consultation
14. Government employees and process - napaka daming steps at mabagal sayang sa oras
15. Catholic Church - lahat ng kilos may bayad, nakikielam sa gobyerno
16. Weather - whole year mainit
17. Security - kahit saang lugar delikado
18. Influence sa kabataan - kapag hindi mo nabantayan maige ang anak mo pedeng lumaking adik, lasingero or malandi. Dito kasi tanggap na as normal sa kabataan matuto maginom, pumarty etc.
19. Sweldo - hindi ko magets bakit maliit ang pasahod
20. pangungunsinti sa mahihirap, kelangan laging libre, karamihan naman tamad

Walang displina ang karamihan ng mga pinoy sa pinas at walang respect sa authority. I am sorry to say this pero nakita ko na naging mentality na kasi na they think they can get away with anything kaht pulis na ang nagsasabi na bawal, sisigaw sigaw pa kahit nasa mali.

Or maybe ive just been watching a lot of videos sa fb... mali na pagkapark sila pa galit, or nagssave ng parking ang tao imbes na sasakyan, mga dashcam at kita mga loko lokong drivers etc. haaayyysss

madami akong ayaw sa Pilipinas, kahit sino pang umupong Presidente ang Pinoy mismo di madisiplina, suwayin lang sila pa galit, may overpass, di ginagamit kaya lalong cause tuloy ng traffic, wala din paki sa batas kaya pag mga kaso kaso, sa mga laws natin, malayong malayo pa ang kailangan para matutosi Juan at Maria. Pilipinas kong mahal. . . .

after a week in Pinas, still noticed the following:

- wala pa rin discipline mga tao about throwing trash all over the place :(
- people just begging for alms when they look strong to have a decent source of income
lahat
- halos lahat ng news na negative, nakakalungkot at nakakawalang gana manood

disclaimer lang, i still love the philippines and babalik balikan ko siya kahit anong mangyari.  gusto ko nga bumalik agad and settle there for good :(

It lost its own characteristics. Copy cats. Can't appreciate products made in the Philippines. Lost pride and nationalism. Always hating.

HORRENDOUS and MISERABLE traffic situation.

I live merely 20minutes away from BGC but eversince August started, it takes me 3-4 hours to get to work every effin day. Parang naga out of town ako everyday. leche.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

^i Agree.

This is the reason why I left manila. I live in the south, and i remember a time when 30 minutes lang or less ang biyahe by bus through SLEX, without using Skyway, door to door, from my house all the way to La-Salle Taft. i had a condo in Taft pero i used to go home middle of the week para humingi ng extra allowance...hahaha.

but oh my gosh, after lawschool and my masters abroad, i went back home to start working. grabe, by bus going to makati, which is considered mas malapit from my house kesa sa La Salle, no, joke, 3-4 hours one way lang naka-skyway ka pa nun ha. pag minalas malas ka pa, standing ovation sa bus. hindi ko naman ma-afford to take my car every day dahil expensive ang gas, toll and parking and i was just starting my career then. tapos, lalo naman na i cannot afford my condominium unit na... unless babayaran ng mommy ko my unit, which defeats the purpose of me working. kaya may i fly away na lang ako.

here's my 20 reasons:

1. Traffic - as elaborated above

2. salary is very low - i worked for a big organisation and above average my starting pay, dahil i have higher degrees, pero ganoon pa man, ang baba pa din ng sweldo grabe. not enough even for just a daily trip to starbucks (maluho, i know, but this is just a comparison). Malaki pa allowance ko back when i was studying

3. Juan Tamad attitude - reklamo ng reklamo, wala namang ginagawa to improve their situation. all they do is blame the 'man'.

4. culture of "kelan ka magaasawa", "tumatanda ka na, wala ka pang anak?" - hello, i am a strong, independent single woman. i don't need a man to be fulfilled. (not that i'm a man-hater, but puhleeze, let a girl enjoy her independence!)

5. so many street kids and pulubis around - okay, not to be matapobs, but really, i blame the parents. bakit hindi na lang mag family planning kung wala naman ipapaaral/ipapakain sa mga bata?!

6. Street kids - you think their kawawa, they're not. they are entitled pieces of **. Back when i was a law student in manila, lalo na in the recto/mendiola/espana area, grabe yung mga street kids dun, sila pa galit pag hindi mo sila inabutan ng limos. obligado magbigay? parepareho tayong walang work, totoy.

7. unsafe - sobrang dami na holdaper, snatcher, pickpockets, etc. you have to be always alert. i mean, i'm not saying naman that you have to be burara or something, and for some, second nature na talaga nila to be "maingat" para nga hindi manakawan, but let me tell you, darling, there's a better way of using your energy. hindi na dapat isama pa sa stress ang fear na manakawan ka for doing simple things such as running errands, crossing the road, etc.

8. No discipline. nobody follows rules. kahit simpleng traffic rules lang such as bawal tumawid or using designated bus stops, hay nako, mahirap ba sundin yun? pag nanita ka, sila pa galit.

9. Pollution. Oh my gosh the pollution. naglalabasan lahat ng allergies ko sa pinas, grabe. at hindi ako talaga makahinga. clogged my nose palagi.

10. Trash. tapon dito, tapon doon. anak ng pasig naman kayo! (my age is showing!)

11. Healthcare system. super expensive, even for the basic things. bawal magkasakit. nakamamatay.

12. Taxes - Taas ng tax, di naman natin nakikita sa infrastructure/benefits

13. Corruption - following number 12

14. Over Population - kasi nga hindi nagfa-family planning, tapos you'd think dahil madaming subjects for taxation dapat madaming macollect na taxes and the infrastructure can be improved. pero waley pa din.

15. transport system - this relates to my number 1 reklamo also, but at the same time, there's really not a lot of option to get from point a to point b. pahirapan the commute. kaya din hindi umunlad ang tourism natin eh, to think na our tourist spots can rival any of the words' tourist destinations. no joke. ang dami ko nang narating and all i can think of is sayang, mas maganda sa pinas pero hindi natin maalagaan

16. poor management of infrastructure and natural resources. again, as i said, sayang talaga. ang dami ko nang narating sa europe na mga "old towns" that is well preserved talaga and believe you me, ang laki ng kita ng gubyerno nila dito, and they really take care of these places to attract visitors from all over the world. hello!! we have intramuros. we have vigan, pero hindi natin ma-market sa tourist kasi bukod sa wala tayong infrastructure, takot pumunta mga turista sa atin. don't even get me started about the beaches/natural resources. wala pa akong nakikitang lugar abroad that can rival what boracay or even puerto galera has to offer... and partida, boracay and puerto galera are so-so lang compared sa iba nating mas magagandang beaches.

17. Public Service and the system itself. yung feeling na sabihan na "wala kang magagawa, ganyan sistema dito" oh my gosh. hindi ko talaga to matanggap. lalo na the government workers. and not only in manila. kahit saang Philippine Embassy or Consulate, dinadala pa yang mentality na yan. super kainit ng ulo.

18. internet. oh my gosh. everytime i go back to the philippines, uwing uwi na agad ako dahil sa sobrang bagal ng internet, sobrang expensive pa! kahit simpleng pag-download lang ng word file from an email, kung naka mobile data ka, sisante ka na sa trabaho mo, hindi pa din tapos ang pagdownload ng file. que horror

 19. church-going hypocrites, and i dont just mean the catholics. mas lalo pa ngang hypocrite yung ibang bible-bearing christians, grabe sa pagiging judgmental "in the name of their bible" ang sasama nbaman ng ugali. very self righteous pa. even the islam and other minor religious communities na feeling nila minority/discriminated sila, it's not because of the religion, it's because of your attitude. you're not asking for "equal treatment" you asking for special treatment.

20. madami pa but let's just leave this number 20 to i agree to everything that is said below.

All of the post above. Just visited recently. It's sad that even after 30 some years the place is still a third world. Back in the late 70's Singapore and Malaysia imported our bank employees to help set up their banks. Naiwanan na ang Pilipinas.

@goddessella I'd like to invite you for coffee when I come back

^True! i kind of grew up in  Hong Kong and i remember a time when we can rival what hong kong or Singapore had to offer.

Coffee sounds great, if ever we're both in Manila. XD otherwise, PM is key. :)

- Yung mga tao na nagsasabi na wag isisi sa gobyerno ang kahirapan. Eh, hindi ba sila nagtataka bakit nagpapatayan manalo lang sila ang maluklok sa pwesto pero wala msyado ginagawa.

-yung nakalagay na lahat sa description pero nagtatanong pa rin at medyo mahina sa comprehension.
