obviously they got plenty of infusions from cheap caucasion genes mixing with locals but that still won't help fix their attitudes and cultures, which are the reasons that prevent them from moving towards modernization.

No, Caucasion genes fail to change Pinoy mindset and attitude.

They always think they are victims of everything and everyone. But yet their mentality is so convoluted that does not match their actual aggressive cruel behavior.

They are definitely the aggressor in Asia, but never the victim. Pinoys have told enough lies.

Smart people learn from other people's mistakes. Smart people doesn't need to lean the hard way and they are always adapting.

Unfortunately for most pinoy they do not learn. Even if they have to pay the price they will still carry on doing their usual thing.

If you look at some of the sign on the highway you will see "NO CROSSING - PLEASE USE THE BRIDGE" and as usual the pinoys will play frogger under the bridge.

I said "oh over dere" she smiles and says yes!

Its actually pretty sad to see even the old people does it. This old lady was asked why she did not use the bridge and she replied something like "its too far" when the bridge was basically a few meters away from where she crossed.

Many find it extremely difficult to obey. No urinating here, no crossing here, no entry, no littering... you still see a lot of them do it. They would rather do a hit and run than stop at the pedestrian crossing.

If the adults can break the rules its hard for the children not to break it too.

Fact is you have a better chance of being run over on a ped crossing than any other part of the road - drivers here do not know or care that they are meant to stop for someone tryin to cross on a ped crossing -those that try to cross on the ped crossing are liable to have a false sence of security and get sqeeched.
Ped crossings here are just a way to dispose of unwanted white or yellow paint.

bridge..... Bridge......BRIDGE!!!!!! CROSS OVER BRIDGE.

That just show how backward the country is. The drivers, the pedestrians and the govt are to blame here.

Why not keep sending out fines to those who violate the traffic rules. Im sure the amount of money generated a year is enough to build a few schools. Like what we have here, the number of traffic cameras are generating millions off of the motorist. Should be much tougher over there. Keep on penalising the one who refuse to learn, ban, throw them in jail or even confiscate the car should teach them a lesson.

Is drink driving even punishable there?

LOL!!!! I swear this really happened. A few years ago on the news they showed a man in Manila approach a severely flooded street. Obviously dangerous but he proceeded anyway and his car began to get swept away. The news team was right there because of this street was so flooded.

They got him to the other side while is car went down stream and asked why he tried to cross, He blamed the Government because there was no sign saying it was flooded!!! LOL. Even the news team called him stupid.

The local currency ranked third globally, appreciating 25 percent in real terms from March 2007 to March 2013, according to the S&P report.
