I wonder about these "top 3 thoughts." So many mentioned corruption and food.

As a frequent visitor to the Philippines, I have had no experience of corruption. I have had some experience with "convenience." When my driver makes an illegal turn, and is pulled over, I slip him a 1000p bank note, and the police send us away with a smile a minute later. Such a time saver.

As for food, there are some things I like to eat in the Philippines, but it hardly qualifies as one of the world's great cuisines. As an experiment, I looked to see how many restaurants in New York I could find on citysearch.com. Here's the result:

Filipino 12
Thai 397
Japanese 1177
Chinese 2623
Pizza 4393

Get the idea?

So, my three things:

1) A chilly day in Baguio searching for ukay-ukay
2) Sunset on Samal Island, Davao
3) Walking through Legazpi Village, Makati after dark, and noticing that only half the condos appear occupied

If I get a fourth choice it would be looking for a restaurant in Greenbelt 3, Makati.
