RE: The Philippines thread
Yeah, there's only three things that I really dislike about the Philippines - the poverty, the pollution and the gays.

The poverty has its upsides as it makes you relatively rich. The gays have their upside as they skew the gender ratio in our favour and leave a surplus of single women. The pollution has no upside and truly blows.

RE: The Philippines thread
I don't understand it. On the one hand the Philippines seems to have a lot of fairly decent infrastructure when it comes to big buildings and some other things, but on the other hand the majority of areas aren't very nice, even if they're not slums. They don't seem to have any appreciation of aesthetics. Seeing McDonalds signs and jollibee signs everywhere isn't very pretty. They don't build roads that curve alongside beaches so that you can walk and watch the sea. It's like they don't care. They should be more like their former colonial overlords and less like the chinese.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

There's a simple reason. Every "decent" building or precinct is privately owned. There is no public planning. That's why there's a lack of pleasant seaside precincts, parks, etc. It's all parceled out to the owners. Even the miniscule green spaces in Makati (Sycip and Triangle Parks) are privately owned and exist solely as a charitable gesture. And that's why the foreshores are generally horrible. Want to stroll along the bay eating icecream? You can only do that, again, in a privately owned space (e.g. MOA). Want to walk along a 21st century street that is as pleasant as one in Singapore? You better go to the privately-owned BGC. Everywhere else it's the wasteland.

Yes, I've noticed (again, just from looking at maps) that they may have beach resorts here and there, but there are no nice beach towns like in Spain, Italy, Brazil, and many other countries. What you say about no public planning, I believe that applies to Thailand too, which explains why it's so eclectic, although Thai towns manage to be interesting without being too ugly. It's a shame as there's so much potential. The Philippines does have great beaches and mountains, but they don't seem fond of building nice cities next to them. The no public planning does explain a lot, but I also think that it's just not part of their psyche to make things look nice. Also I hate how the streets are laid out.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

Aesthetics and convenience are certainly not part of the Filipino psyche. The fittings and design of houses and condos are terrible, even the expensive ones. Forget a well-designed kitchen with counter space or a bathroom where you can hang your towel conveniently. They just don't give a shit.

The bathrooms are the worst, even in "luxury" condos there's always frustrating flaws that even apartments in a low income housing projects in America wouldn't have.

About the lack of parks and green spaces in the cities, I think they do exist, the problem is that currently they are all being squatted on. Look at some of these old pictures https://www.pinterest.com/eqzav/70s-manila/?lp=true

RE: The Philippines thread
I definitely miss public spaces, it's not like in America where there's parks everywhere.

Also, at the malls, it's almost impossible to find a bench to sit down in. And they dole out trash cans like if there's only a few left in the world. So you end up with trash in your pockets fairly regularly while you look for the one trash can on that building's floor.

I carry toilet paper with me in a zip lock bag in my back pocket at all times, because you never know when a public restroom will be out of toilet paper. Most don't even have any, they have these little machines next to the restroom where you by toilet paper, but sometimes they run out.

I've seen several Filipino guys take pisses in the street when I've been walking around, but I'm not comfortable enough here yet to do that. I'll report back when I take my first street piss.

These images reinforce an idea I've got in my head, that there's simply too many Filipinos now. These islands can only support so many people, and just because we are able to create a theoretically infinite number of people, it doesn't mean we should. The islands simply don't have enough resources to support a decent standard of living for this many people. The population density is just too high, and some form of family planning should be a top priority here.

If every Filipino family limited itself to 2 kids, max, there'd be much less crushing poverty.

I don't think the sheer number of people is the problem, its corruption. It goes back to the Marcos era, his regime fucked the country up bad and they've never recovered.

However, Paris is the most densely populated city in the world, and it doesn't seem too crowded. I'm sure any western country would find a way to have 100 million people in an area of that size without too much overcrowding. That's not to say that they should have 10 kids each, as it doesn't help.

When I look at old photos of Manila, it actually looks quite nice. You see people dressed respectably rather than moping around in t shirts, and everything looks more orderly. Come on Philippines, you can do better. I'd like to move there and I try so hard to see the positives pero it's not easy. The best place has to be Baguio and even that was build by outsiders.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

And when you talk about pollution, don't forget about the noise. Roosters, horns, karaoke, unwatched TVs blaring in the background; Filipinos don't seem to notice. It all combines to create an ungodly racket that drives me insane. If I ever live there it will have to be on a few hectares outside the town, nowhere near Manila or Cebu.

Yeah, I need my peace and quiet. I'm lucky enough to live high enough above the street that I actually have peace and quiet. But every time I go in the street, it's hard to think.

I'm wondering if there's a correlation between a culture's comfort with noise and their economic productivity. I'm sure it's not a one to one correlation, but maybe there's somewhat of a correlation.

Anyhow, I've got a cold of some sort, so I'm trying to stay in bed a few days, that's why I'm so active on the forum today and yesterday. Can't stop coughing, so I'm overdosing on mangoes and cough medicine.

There is a long-known link between loud noise and stress, which can lead to various disease states. This is just one recent example regarding heart disease:

RE: The Philippines thread
If you visit 3rd tier cities that have been around since the colonial era but have not grown enough since to be unrecognisable like Baguio, Dumagete, Cagayan de Oro (from what I've read but I've never been there) and even the Malate area of Manila, you can see that they were actually planned very well around nice parks, wide sidewalks along the seafront etc. They have gone to squalor now through generations of neglect, corruption and those ideas that they were built on being ignored but I don't think its too late to turn them around if strict planning regulations were implemented and the governments took a bit of a proactive approach.

The bar is so low that it would take very little effort for any city to get head and shoulders above the rest in terms of being a pleasant, livable city but still none seem to take the bait.

Lets not pretend that the chaos, disorder and sense of free-for-all of the whole place isn't a big part of the charm of the Philippines though!

True. If they would just tidy it all up a bit and take a bit of pride, it would be perfect.

I hope you all had a nice holiday. Enjoyed a warm piece of pumpkin pie with coo whip. Now to business.

From the intelligence gathered on this thread we must have a dozen highly trained and weaponized men living in Manila/Cebu/etc.

Where are all the filthy, seductive lay reports? Rotations? In the Philipines. THE PHILIPPINES?! Oh no. This is a line in the sand we cannot cross.

Now I come out with whip!

I want to read daily briefs of you guys squirting unsuspecting pinay poosay. I’m activating all the Treadstone operatives. It’s official, all you Jason Bournes get to work across the archipelago.

Each one of you is required to scalp ten poosays before you’re captured. And I want my poosays.

You hear me? I want them. You are going to get them! Consider it an early Christmas gift to your adopted nation.

To the moon!

There are lots on YouTube but they tend to be 55+ years old and it's a whole different dynamic: a lot of it is P4P, sponsorship and gold digging.

I'll probably go to Angeles (but not for P4P) for 1 to 3 months and I will write a datasheet on it. If it turns out Philippines isn't my cup of tea then I can go back to Taiwan or Georgia.

I'm planning on visiting Manila for 2 months starting from Feb next year. Just wanted to know how do you guys manage your accomodation? I checked some apartments on AirBnb and most of them are availaible only for few weeks/days in a month but not for the entire month. So do you keep shifting places or is there a way to stay at one place long term? I would prefer the latter
