Filipino food should not be bought from vendors in the streets as someone commented Basic hygienic standards are not complied with and even not in small restaurants There are no state controls as far as hygiene is concerned. Many of the guards and staff in the condo towers are not paying enough attention to safety matters You cannot trust them at all since they -like most Filipinos- are irresponsible and liars and use every chance to make some money and steal and are very hipocrit Most Filipinos are brainwashed by the Catholic church. They are not concerned with the latest developments within the catholic church in the Vatican The Vatican apparently has lately been involved in many scandals and criminal activities but brainwashed Filipinos are not aware of it or do not believe these facts I am writing these comments on the basis of my experiences as an expat in Manila since 6 years
