hi guys!, my fellow BRM members; i would like to know of what you think of my country... please vote honestly... Most of the worst cases here in our country is isolated... And the proof is that in every year our tourism industry just kept on growing...

ow, i'll be there at kidapawan next week... im gonna open a our company sub-office, maybe on the 25th... thats the reason why i haven't logged a couple of days, been there and surveyed the place... kidapawan is a nice place, though most of our countrymen here have tagged it as a critical place to live...
Disagree

it seemed alright when I was there in Cotabato, it was pretty secluded tho and the house has gates so its quite safe, the house my family in Philippenes live is huge it has like a swimming pool and stuff so im guessing that it just might be a nice safe part of kidapawan

it really depends on where you are in the country to be deemed safe or unsafe. Anyway any idea why our country always seems to be banned from no deposit bonuses?

Philipines are (each time more) growing in terms of advertising their qualities to promote tourism, and that is becoming a crucial factor to the change of their economy, their politics and, as a consequence of the "snow ball", their own culture. Those cases you refer to, happens every country, with more or less mediatism to the world wide, but they do happen. Other countries, with different cultures, tend to look at that as something to uncommon, but it isnt. Look: corruption in Portugal and Italy, dictators in Africa, lack of freedom in Russia, no public health service in the USA. Everyone has problems!
