Popular Post Jake Posted December 23, 2011 Popular Post Posted December 23, 2011 Forgive me MikeB for taking one of your quotations. For those of you that feels like lower than whale chitcitizen/resident living in the Philippines, may I offer this suggestion: please quickly establish a rapport withthe local neighborhood watchers (tanods), barangay captains, PNP and city hall officials.Remember, we're talking about the Philippines where certain "donations" are expected if you want thingsdone your way. And I'm not talking about exchanging money either.For example, I've been known to spontaneously give cold bottles of water as I'm passing through a policecheckpoint. Leftover pizzas to the local tricycle and jeepney drivers; picture taking of PNP posing with mywife at the police station; donating cheap flashlights/binoculars to tanods.....many possibilities of "greasing"the system at your immediate location. Any other suggestions submitted will be greatly appreciated.Of course, there are some drawbacks to this arrangement, depending how you tolerate persistent "requests".Respectfully -- Jake 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
