  • the momoland is taking me out

  • OK You know Filipinos don't want too much discipline , else they would be annoyed .Filipinos for a long time are exploited of their wealth .Philippine society tends that wealth are only for the upper class or elite.
    So many people. just struggling for survival.
    So only the rich can develop for lands themselves for themselves but the poor could not.
    I am only talking about our own premises societies. but their are many other countries stricken with poverty.
    But basically ,many so called rich countries in reality are almost the same just like check to check life in their societies.
    Though life is hard for many Filipinos, we are happy people ,happy to welcome you too.

  • THIS WAS 3 YEARS AGO…….NEED TO UPDATE!!!

  • Did you find a lot of kids begging in the streets?

  • They are catholic because the Spaniards conquered the Philippines in the 1500's, They were liberated after a revolution in the late 1890's. Many Spanish last names…

  • So refreshing to find a video on PH that actually goes into the history, culture and lives of locals. Most others I've found have just been surface-level trash by dumb, uninformed youtubers fearfully walking around the main tourist areas. Thanks!

  • Wow they are pigs. Everywhere is dirty

  • Please Announcement audio Bible App in news channel studio

  • Investing in stock is easy, but buying the right stock without a time-tested strategy is incredibly hard. hence I will suggest you get yourself a financial- advisor that can provide you with entry and exit points on best stocks to buy now or put on a watchlist

  • I don’t even think about security in the Phillipines. It feels way safer than Europe and the US. Non confrontational society in comparison.

  • Racist. U know u hate PH even before going there

  • Out of money, no honey. Then you say she left before he was unable to access his money. Misleading but I'm sure it got people to watch.

  • Same as india🇮🇳

  • I just subscribed you. Thank you for showing an excellent footage of the lifestyle of different cities. I felt like I was there in person during the entire length of the video.

  • Luv your videos keep it up and stay safe out there

  • Iam there 14 monts my adwise for this an all foraigner Ami European the are not friendly in the real life it’s not a lie the most ignore jou the a big Rassist the raise the pinoy flag in cinema the stun up wats tat this is Rassist Asians and if jou hafe a problem hide away very fast the air is dangeres in Manila an at Night do not go out there

  • My uncle married a Filipino woman. His wife is a good woman they've been together for 25 years. My aunt has offered me $25,00 0 to marry a Filipino woman. I will never get married. With my work I get a month and a half off a year. My work is seasonal and I'm thinking about taking my vacation in the Philippines.

  • Why roosters why not chickens who would produce eggs

  • filipino mindset is the root of all of these. i am a filipino yet i don't call my self a filipino. i dont hate filipinos. i love my country and my people. however most of us don't care about our country. don't care about each other. that's the average filipinos. infact that's what filipino is. the overall state of the country is the result of individual mindset.
    think about it. if all filipinos care about each other and care about thier country. the philippine would be like japan by now.
    but no. drugs are everywhere. crime is nonestop all over the country. people throw garbage everywhere. people dont care about the other homeless people on the streat.

    the government? – government sucks! garbage and bulshit! government must be politics not politician.
    overall what i really love about the philiippine is the children. i adore theme so much. but once they grow, some of theme will be one of the killer or snacher or even homeless one. most of theme will become like the average. only few of theme will become proffessionals with good job and good life.

  • This was quite an eye-opening truth, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for, the REAL day-to-day life there.

  • Thanks for sharing ❤

  • Ales have no Reproductive Organs

  • Ya no thanks.

  • It quite obvious that you are focusing on the negative aspects which can be found in any country even in Japan or Canada. A great number of foreigners who visited the Philippines and fell in love with the amazingly beautiful country and especially the Filipinos who are knowned to be the kindest, smart (most are multi-,lingual), happiest and most hospitable people have decided to move there permanently .

  • Your vlog full of negativity. What a S#!+ .!!!

  • WOW that’s gross 😮 the cleanliness of the water and sewer looks disgusting. This video completely demotivated me from getting my passport to go on vacation because if I wanted substandard living conditions I would just stay in America and go visit New York. I thought the Philippines would be a nice quiet beach resort with palm tree’s 🌴 and coconuts. 😢

  • Most guards are door openers.

  • 🥰🥰🥰

  • Nhờ ơn Chúa Thánh Thần nên trong năm 2016 ở Việt Nam giống Xuất hành chương 7 câu 14 đến chương 10 câu 29:
    Số 1: Nước biến thành máu: Cả 4 tỉnh miền Trung và thế giới từ 2016 đến 2023: Nước biến thành máu
    Số 2:Ếch: Cả nước
    Số 3:Muỗi: Cả nước
    Số 4:Ruồi nhặng: Cả nước
    Số 5:Ôn dịch: Sốt xuất huyết, sốt rét
    Số 6:Ung nhọt: Bệnh Tay Chân Miệng
    Số 7:Mưa đá: ở Sapa và các vùng lân cận
    Số 8:Châu chấu: ở Lai Châu và thế giới từ 2016 đến 2023
    Số 9:Cảnh tăm tối: Đó là 21,22 ,23 tháng 12 khi trái đất ở xa nhất mặt trời thì Bắc cực sẽ có ba ngày ba đêm không nhìn thấy nhau
    Rồi một đêm tôi nằm mơ thấy những nấm mồ mầu trắng ở đó có hình Thánh Giá mầu trắng chung quanh là tím than. Rồi có tiếng hét: Chết hết cả rồi ! Tôi giật mình thức giấc:12 giờ đêm ở Mỹ (1 giờ đêm ). Ở Việt Nam là 15 giờ cùng ngày
    Rồi một đêm khác tôi nằm mơ thấy hai con chim nhạn bị bắn chết. Tôi nghe nó nói: Nó là anh em sinh đôi. Tôi liền nghĩ là….. và Tận thế
    Vậy…. rồi tận thế lúc 12 giờ đêm ở Mỹ (1 giờ đêm). Ở Việt Nam là 15 giờ cùng ngày
    YouTube:” Những dòng sông nước chảy như máu từ thế giới 2016 đến 2023” và “Những đàn châu chấu từ thế giới 2016 đến 2023”
    Dịch bệnh, lủ lụt, các điềm lạ, động đất, hạn han….
    Phản Kito là ĐGH
    Sắp tận thế lúc 15 giờ cùng ngày

  • You're Canada ,it's fine

  • By watching different vlogs opened my eyes about our country Philippines and other countries, for example Thailand, many years ago the thai people study here in the Philippines to know how to plant palay or rice now they are exporting to other neighboring countries, Thailand at that time is not yet a tourist haven of asia but now they are booming why because everything was planned ahead of time , unlike our country politicians are busy in what they can get from being a politician for example the pork barrel ,the only president who has the heart to developed our tourism industry was president Duterte by developing some of the tourist spots of the Philippines, but like other presidents in the past it only lasted for awhile because he was in the office for only 6years and it is not enough to accomplish a large scale of problem in every parts of our government, but if our politicians will be serious in developing our country to become a tourist haven i know in the future we will be able to be like Thailand.

  • Fact: You are most likely to be get robbed in EU and US than the Philippines. There are also almost non existent mass shooting events unlike most countries. Despite guns everywhere no one will just shoot you randomly unless it’s personal altercation.

  • I am a Canadian and I have been to the Philippines. I had cousins and friends there. Also with the safety isuue my female cousin said that I shouldn't come to the Philippines alone.. I went with two other ladies and met my friend and her coworker so there were five of us travelling around the country.. I have been to quite a few countries.

  • THANKS FOR POSTING THE REAL SITUATION AND CONDITIONS OF MANY PLACES IN COUNTRY. MAY THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND AGENCIES WILL WAKE UP WHAT ARE TO BE IMPROVE FOR THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF THESE COMMUNITIES.

  • Sorry but I have to say something: 7-eleven is not a Japanese company, it is as American as can be; headquartered in Dallas, TX.

  • Most people think investment is for only the rich people but it's a big lie, the truth is investment is for everyone don't be deceived with fake informations around you,,,

  • 6:05 is the most related thing ever, every company meeting bgm is some roosters

  • I’m looking for a lady like yourself or even you. You’re most gorgeous and very sweet person. To have a lifetime relationship of love.

  • MANILA REPRESENTS THE WHOLE PHILIPPINE IS A JOKE… TODAY EVEN PINOY LOST TO JAKARTA & BALI WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA INSTANT KARMAMA PINOY INSTANT KARMA

  • filipinos are hospitable, kind and easy to talk with., jolly and resilient people, ,if your going to compare it in your country or other countries, of course they are differ from each other., every country, has their own story to tell., i live:in japan for 22 yrs., but the cost of living, here ,is quiet triple higher than my country, but i have to lived with it, , with no criticizing.every hard experience, i went thru, i still respect, their culture, and the high standard of living here, all i can say even.if i live a simple life, in this high standard country , but for sure ,when iget older ,i would go back to my own country, till my last breath., and i would say, I'm proud to be a filipino.🙏♥️✌️👊🌹☘️🇵🇭🙏

  • that was 2019, if you can come now, it has a big difference, as it is in the last 3 years., why not go to BGC, Ayala Mall, Mall of Asia, Shangrila, a lot these days, it changes a lot, than you went.3 yrs., ago.

  • We’re dying! Come!

  • The Philippines has a number of beautiful beaches and so on, but it's the trash all over the place in the cities and the general sense of chaos in the marketplaces and so on that inclines most expats to settle in Thailand.

  • 12:34…..YOOOOOOOO…. THE PIG IS BIGGER THAN HIM…!!
