1) Traffic. I drive everyday and I hate the traffic condition here in the Philippines. It's caused by the undisciplined drivers of our country. 2) Pollution. I'm talking about all the trash everywhere, water pollution in our rivers, air pollution because of all the cars and factories and noise pollution because of all the vehicles honking their horns. I also hate those who are responsible for making the mess. 3) Corruption. Almost everyone who holds a position in the government and has some authoritative power is corrupt. I really hate that. 4) Undisciplined drivers. I'm not just talking about the public utility vehicle drivers who stop when they want to drop-off or pick up passengers, I'm also talking about drivers of private vehicles who don't know how to give way and force their way on the roads. 5) Sam Milby. I just don't like him.

And I would also like to add on your very to-the-point and well thought list. 6. urinating in public places (mygad! our streets stink!) 7. smoking in public places (I feel so fresh in my morning walk and these inconsiderate people are blowing nicotine on my hair.) 8. smoke belchers 9. traffic enforcers who do not enforce traffic rules 10. government officials who treat public service as their business (talk about corruption) I'm giving you a good rate for that good post my dear.

Hate is such a strong word, so let's just say things that are displeasing around us. 1) While the TRAFFIC situation has improved from what it was several years ago, it remains a frustrating experience at certain days and certain times. And unless our roads are widened, and are people really become serious about disciplined driving, then you better brace yourself for traffic. 2) PEOPLE who abet CORRUPTION. It's a vicious cycle, but unless someone puts a stop to it (translated: stop being GREEDY!) then it will not stop. Start with yourself. Don't give in to fixers and if caught for some violation, settle it properly. 3) PEOPLE who indiscriminately throw GARBAGE, thinking the whole place is one big dumpsite. If you can't find a trash can immediately, stuff it in your pocket or your bag or at least take the effort to find a trash bin. 4) The PALAKASAN and PAKIKISAMA system. This is the boon to progress. Just imagine you have people being appointed to positions they are not qualified or prepared for. Merit and experience should weigh heavily when choosing someone to be promoted. 5) PEOPLE who vote because a candidate is popular or due to name recall, even when they have no track record to speak of, at least at being an upstanding citizen . Keep at it and your only choice is LIVE with your CHOICES. Stop complaining. Do something. Even just one little thing to help our country. To sum things up: I guess what is wrong about our country are the values and behavior of its people. Imagine, our country has to live down an image created by its people...

Well there are many to mention but I would mention a few that really irritates me. I will just mention two of the major ones. 1. Corruption. It is pretty obvious that there are lots of it going around from the highest post down to the MMDA, policemen, and even the government clerks. They are all there. 2. Traffic. Although MMDA is doing its best to correct the problem, I guess we are partly to be be blame because we refuse almost everything that MMDA do to make the traffic better. There is always opposition in everything they do. But in fairness to them they are doing good in making the roads safely it the driving public that are so stubborn I guess. For the MMDA's there are still corrupt people there that needs to be ridden of of course. They are also part of the system that makes the system degrade.

i don't really know if i love this country at all to be perfectly honest, but here are 5 things (among many others) that i hate about it: 1. the horribly obvious corruption 2. so many people commit crimes and they get away with it 3. those beggars who only pretend to be blind 4. those people who try to "direct" you when you park or get out of parking spaces, how they think they are indispensable, how they expect you to pay them when they are no help at all, and how they would scratch up your car when you don't. 5. people on motorbikes who think traffic laws don't apply to them

There's alot of things to love about our country but there's also alot to hate about it. First, politics. The politics in this country is just awful. Sometimes i no longer watch the news because i dont want to see the faces of our politicians. Second, the increasing number of poor people. I really pity them. I hope our government does something to help them. Third, the traffic situation. Fourth, the peace and order situation. You cant help but be paranoid about rapists and thieves. There are alot in this country. Fifth, people who dont follow the law.

1. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo- She's really a devil woman. 2. Corruptions and nepotism- Everywhere here in the Philippines, there's corruption and nepotism. 3. Traffic- Philippines is one of the most traffic and polluted place on earth. 4. Romulo Neri- because he's involved in anomally and was appointed in SSS as president. SSS Members like us should watch his actions. 5. ABS CBN-because they like to manipulate things. PEACE!!!

A lot of things if you will noticed are unlikeable here in our country( after all why they would call us third world right?) from cockroaches to dust, to street children, to jeepney drivers smelling like rotten rodents, to jeepneys with loud stereos. There are taxi exploiters. Moon like roads, traffic, MMDA, politicians, never ending! but to me my top five would be: 1. the 2. M 3. O 4. L 5. E
