Outrigger Canoes were also invented by ancient Filipinos a very long time ago and it is also the technology used by modern Catamarans.

When you were out of Topix during your Philippine vacation, somebody who used the name 'lol' posted here saying that he/she got robbed by filipino cops in Manila(or something like that). Was it you? Just want that clarified for curiosity sake :)
Definitely not me. I did not go out from the MIA and/or Domestic but went directly to Davao City.

In Davao, everyday sometimes I'm alone as my neice/sister are working ...riding the cab and tricycle going around the city. The secret...don't show off going around malls etc. with signature bag and jewelry. I had a $1.00 shoulder bag ..where I put my small wallet a bottle of water and towel...wearing white tshirt and slippers. The only thing I could not stop is giving more to the tricycle driver and cab's meter.

my sister thought I don't have a nice bag and when she offered me to use something fancy...I told her she's crazy if I will use that kind attracting unnecessary attention.

I really had a wonderful vacation and my friends are going there too in October. I plan to go again hopefully October next year. Definitely, I will avoid May as it's too hot and June as it's rainy/flood season.

So whoever posted that is a liar impostor.

Perhaps he thought you're an easy ignoramus of fckin cell ffs..

FYI, you can't see genuine cops moonlighting in MIA..perhaps only security guards of some contractors, but I doubt it.

While I was sitting in MIA, I dropped my wallet and did not notice it. A Customs' inspector came and told me of my wallet. So your experience is really different from mine.

A Chinese national was busted by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) for selling shabu to a poseur-buyer along Timog Avenue, Quezon City, early this morning, February 2, 2012.





PDEA Director General Undersecretary Jose S. Gutierrez, Jr. identified the arrested Chinese national as Clarence Chen Go, alias Tony Go, a 36-year-old native of Xiamen, China.





Gutierrez said Go was caught red-handed after handing-over a “gift-wrapped” package containing 1 kilogram of shabu to a PDEA agent who acted as poseur-buyer along Timog Avenue near Tomas Morato in Quezon City at around 1 AM. Further search yielded two other “gift-wrapped” packages each containing 500 grams of shabu.





Gutierrez added that Go has been under the surveillance of PDEA under Case Operation Plan: Iceman to neutralize threat posed by the group responsible for the proliferation of drugs in Metro Manila and other nearby areas.





“Undercover PDEA agents entered into a transaction with Go a week ago for 1 kilogram of shabu in consideration of P 3.6 million. Go and his group normally transacts with clients through bank prior to delivery,” Gutierrez said, adding that PDEA is considering the possibility of referring the case to the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) to investigate possible money laundering activities.

Oh dear, she is really in deep trouble, possibly getting hand chopped off. The American family should have given her a chance to return the stolen goods, knowing what Sharia law is against theft.

Pinoy is a racial slur , so lets avoid using it, lets keep this thread non racist guys. We should respect our maids, because it is them who clean our toiletbowls with their bare hands and lick our feets at minimum wages. My Filipino maids occasionally call in their daughters to satisfy our sexual desires for free, to get favours from us maid owners. Many of these Filipino commenters here have mothers working as our maids and sisters being used as our sex toys. Instead of arguing w/ them, we should just chill and enjoy their women. Yes Filipinos did invent the jar, its now mostly used to store our faeces in the toilet, as they claim to be good spiritual relics back in their homeland. No BS. They told me they'll worship my shit in the jar for giving them big houses in the Philippines. All I paid them was 250USD/month. Working for me for 2 years = 5500USD.
5500USD = Big house in the Philippines. Sure is some cheap ass country, but respect them for they clean our shit.=)

the only way pinoy can get rich is to give back spratly to China and befriend China

then China will send their 1 billion tourist to visit philippines.

every tourist spend one thousand dollar in philippines, then the philippines earn 1 trillion dollars...

but the pinoy are stupid, they are doom, they are destine to be poor, it is their monkey brain destiny...
