why filipinos are so mean(heres a story)???no offense?
ok i had gone to manila last month aug.7-18
i was so frustrated that i saved all my money for 1year just to go there.*my mistake*i thought it was a very good country due to some of my researches and books that i bought. personally i think it was a ghastly country…
why?becoz”no one gives me directions like if i ask somebody in tagalog:saan po papunta dito?
they just put up their arms?and say i dont know!i have asked many but they all are frowning!
NOT EVEN SMILING AT ME.
and i had gone to BORACAY also it wasnt good at all in fact,the garbages are scattered and it populated.
PROMISE TO GOD I WONT GO THEE ANYMORE!SAME EXPERIENCE?
NO OFFENSE TO FILIPINOS I JUST WANT TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
Sorry to hear your story Eki. I am a European that lived most of my life in America, and the past 13 years in Asia. While in Taiwan, I met my future wife whom I married in the Philippines. If you become part of the “tribe”, you will be treated as one of the family.BUT you go to the local store, the palengke, prices double because you’re not a Filipino and therefore RICH. After people get to know you, they will realize what the facts are.
Now about directions.You have a special problem in Manila, because the congress has to pass a lot of laws…. They do this by changing names of the streets, and that may be why people don’t know how to get you where you want to go. Another possibility is they just hop on a jeepney and only recognize the place they want. Finally, it really kills me, but I haven’t met ANYONE who could read a map.
