The not so good things outside Philippines/other countries

Talk about things other than video games. What are your other hobbies? What's your favorite TV show? Are you into sports. Any recommended restaurants? Do you travel?

Para sa akin not so good yung iniiwan nalang sa retirement/nursing home ang nakakatanda.
Lord, grant me the strength to be content where I am, the patience to wait on Your timing, & the faith to remember that You have Your hand always on my heart. Amen.

Due to our Catholicism that reigns our country, Di naman maiaalis ang pagiging mapagpatawad natin sa mga nagkasala sa atin. It's fine. Turo nga ni Jesus Christ yun di ba. But sometimes there are moments you can say it's too much. Like the recent news..

- Some Congressmen & even Jinggoy Estrada are clamoring/in favor for GMA to have x-mas outside veteran's hospital for health reasons.

I mean, this is like GMA giving pardon to Erap back then. What's this? You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours?

Kaya nga eh. Dapat take advantage na nila ang strong passport nila.

All the time akala ko Americans ang pinaka travel minded, well traveled, mahilig mag travel.

akala ko noon USA, Canadians, UK, Australians and the rest of the white westerns ay iisa ang custom to travel.
syempre lalo na americans madami sa dito sa atin. pero hindi ko alam yung may custom tulad sa UK ang mahilig mag-travel.
kasi sila (UK) every summer naka-block ang august (summer sa kanila) for vacation.

Overhype ang pagiging on time ng mga hapon, especially sa work, on time lang sila sa start pero sa end sobra sobra overtime

kwento nga ng housemate ko dati sa SG na nagwowork sa isang japanese owned company doon na sobrang workaholic daw ang mga hapon kasi mga boss nya purong japanese. Yung tipong 7pm ang out sa trabaho tapos makukuha pang mag inuman hanggang 3am AT makakapasok pa sila before 7am. Ganun sila ka-disiplinado sa pagiging punctual. And come to think op it, kahit ako pag masarap ang basag ko sa inuman, kahit power nap lang ng 1 hr eh mas fresh pa ang gising ko na parang nakatulog ako ng 7hours straight. :lol:

Mga instik sanay din sa basagan sa trabaho mga yan kaya nga highly preferable sila ng mga foreign investors. They're not just chosen bec of being a cheap labor but more on their work practices. Yung tipong midnight ang closing ng isang eatery pero makukuha pa nila magligpit at maglinis tapos by 4am open na ulit sila. This goes one for like 6days a week.

Dito sa tin hindi tatalab ang ganyang sistema kasi kelangan ang matinding disiplina na hindi pangkaraniwan sa nakararaming pinoy.

Well drinking is part of the working culture, eto kasi yung bonding moments ng mga katrabaho at boss mo, sa working hrs kasi bawal personal shiz kailangan 100% trabaho lang. Pero pag baguhan ka pa kasi mahirap tumanggi sa inuman wala ka kasing company spirit kuno or kj ka kapag d ka umiinom. I had that experience hanggang 5am yung inuman tapos papasok ka ng 8am haha lutang ako buong araw.

- May kultura sa Japan na tingin ng mga lalaki sa babae ay alipin pa rin
- Mentality ng mga Puti na far superior sila compared sa mga hindi puti kulay ng balat.
- Yung mga kano sa US asar na asar sa mga Asians. Ninakaw daw mga asians ang kanilang kabuhayan.
- Walang proper etiquette yung mga intsik from mainland china. Maingay magsalita, dura ng dura, jingle ng jingle kahit saan.

re: Americans custom to travel... napansin ko rin ito kahit sa mga teenagers nila. Pag summer break, talagang roadtrip at gala. Parang naiinip sila pag nasa bahay.

Student loan.

Sa kakabasa ko ng travel blogs, madalas ko nakikita sa comments na "I can't afford to travel because of student loan" or something like that.
Lord, grant me the strength to be content where I am, the patience to wait on Your timing, & the faith to remember that You have Your hand always on my heart. Amen.

mahirap bayaran ang student loans sa U.S. lalo na ngayon mahirap makapasok sa work ang mga college graduates.
guaranteed ang singil sa kanila at walang default or bankruptcy na pwede i-file.

Nakakarelate ako dun sa post about Chinese attitude kahit nasa ibang bansa sila...Feeling superior...

Yung Chief security ng Buddhist temple sa Thailand na pinuntahan namin dati eto ang sabi...

"If you are Pinoys, i am you friend, but if you're Chinese, i am not going to talk to you"

Parang walang disiplina, hindi marunong pumila eh, nakikipag unahan pa sa river ferry...
Everybody wants Happiness, Nobody wants Pain...
But you can't have a Rainbow, without a little Rain....
